USP and Regional Politics

Dear Editor,

I am very concerned with the current political crises here in Fiji. First, we are all ok so please do not worry, still very safe.

My concern is this USP is a regional institution and I am just worried that if Forum Members take a stand on the Fiji problems, it might have a negative effect on USP. I am sure Forum Members will be forced to make a decision soon on how they should respond to the crises so I hope they keep in mind that thousands of Pacific Islanders are hosted by Fiji in USP. ( I am a final year politics major so I know.)

So maybe, friends in Australia and New Zealand should stand by to assist because should we be forced to return home because of regional politics then please open your Universities to us. I do not know about the others but I have lost all my fishing and gardening skills in pursuit of an education.
