Dear Unitech and UPNG students,
Since only you have had the guts to stand up for your future [not much can be said about DWU, PAU and the others who most probably will pray their way out of this mess] Gary Juffa has thrown his support behind you! If anybody understands what you want, it is Juffa who protested against land mobilization in 1993.
This is his message to you…
TAKING PNG BACK FROM THE RICHLY CORRUPT AND CORRUPTED RICH
I fully support the actions of our students…be the voice of the voiceless…represent your families tribes clans ad families…for what good is a nation if it is not ours? What good is an economy if it is not ours?
What good is a future and a destiny if it is not ours?
I marched with my brothers and sisters from all over PNG to remove a sinister land mobilization policy imposed by the World Bank through weak politicians in 1993.
To this day I have never regretted that decision to stand firm for my clan, my people and my country. In fact it was one of the proudest moments in my life. Solidarity for PNG was high. I was proud to see a sea of Papua New Guineans from all over our great nation. We had one common interest: PROTECT PNG.
And we did.
My young leaders of tomorrow, you may choose mediocre existence and be safe, but as a voice for your people, tribe, clan, family you are expected to fight injustice and marginalization NOT fail them!
To accept a selfish agenda to educate oneself only is to ignore all those who have contributed in someway to you getting the opportunities you now enjoy.
Your plight will be to subscribe to a recolonization effort where our people are but displaced miserable and despairing consumers without land, culture and future.
This is not LIVING this is mere existence!
Rise up young leaders and take back PNG!
Take it back from the richly corrupt and the corrupted rich and their puppet and muppet politicians who are hell bent on selling this great nation and its resources and its dignity while assaulting the constitution!
