To the sounds of the St Thomas High Band, SODELPA officials, Nominees, members and supporters came out in numbers to signal the ‘awaking’ of the SODELPA push to regain Democracy for Fiji.
Despite the restrictions on placard and other material and being closely watched by Police, supporters were unmoved, and joined the march.
SODELPA West spokesman and Nominee Mick Beddoes said he was pleased with the turn out and said all those who found the courage to step out in the open and declare their support for SODELPA have the gratitude and admiration of the SODELPA leadership.
Beddoes said it’s not an easy thing to do as many people remained intimidated and fearful; however he hoped that the courage displayed by SODELPA West supporters today would motivate and encourage others to cast aside their fears and join SODELPA in its push to re-establish accountable and transparent democracy in Fiji.
Ro Teimumu officially opened the new SODELPA West office in Lautoka.
