More land problems

Cane farms are burning and the harvest season hasn’t even started. This is devastating to the farmers concerned who have lost income they rely on to feed their families. Fiji Sun is threatening to bring the law down on all the arsonists but Fiji Times is letting us know what the real problems are. National Farmers Union president Surendra Lal told the Fiji Times what the real problem is – it’s disputes over land. He says “It’s only proper for people to sit and solve their problems in an appropriate manner because burning someone’s cane farm will not bring anything good”. We all know this is the only way land disputes get solved but the Bainimarama way is to use force and it seems that this is catching.
