Vice President Binay and Senators Poe and Santiago all emphasize how they will change things and do them better. Well, there are problems. Still, it is true that political candidates can easily find examples they can put into the public arena that support their contention that change is needed.
Mr Tup said ABG can better inform the people of the priority infrastructure needs in these two regions. Ex-combatants who fought in the year civil war that claimed the lives of more than 20, Bougainvilleans, live today with scars and traumatised pain of memories of the civil unrest that brought Bougainville down to level zero.
They told of how the conflict has left them forgotten by their government.
But their fight for freedom has left them with wounds and scars that they still carry with them today after almost 25 years.
Marukoi sustained many bullet wounds during the crisis, and today these bullet pellets are still stuck in his body. He said he had over bullet pellets stuck in his body starting from his head right down to his legs.
He feels the pain of these wounds everyday and as a result, he cannot do much in his village like gardening or helping his family with other work. Philip Lamau has a pellet stuck in the middle finger of his left hand and in other parts of his body as well and Francis Numai also tells of similar ordeals.
These three ex-combatants spoke on behalf of all other ex-combatants who are living with the same wounds and scars from the civil war. They are now calling on the Autonomous Bougainville Government and also the Veteran Affairs Division of Bougainville to take heed of their silent cries.
They want their government to send them and other ex-combatants in the same situation to hospitals where they can undergo proper operations to have the pellets from their bodies removed.
The three men explained that the only operation they received was at the Sohano Health Centre in during the time of the crisis, but not all of the bullet pellets were removed. Former commander and ex-combatant Albert Magoi was also with the three South Bougain-villean ex-combatants.
He said he felt very sorry for his men because they were the ones that fought for the freedom that Bougainvilleans today enjoy. In the Bougainvillean scene of geographical archetypes I am aware of, a Panguna man is a highlander, just like a Kongara man.
He is a stranger to the mysteries of the Solomon Sea that girds the hundreds of green islands that make up the Solomon Archipelago. Here the highlander talks about the coast and goes back to his cold, mountainous haven, which is a misery to the coastal man.
The Panguna man fears the ride on a canoe over the bulgy myriad of waves generated by the vast Solomon Sea around Bougainville; the Panguna man hates the deep and wavy look of the sea and the coral reefs below and holds tight onto the wet sides of a canoe till ashore.
With the ever rising population of Arawa, the highlanders of Bougainville are now the major domestic tourists, travelling on the beautiful coastlines of Arawa and Kieta every weekend. The Panguna mine-related Upper Tailings Office personnel love the Pidia Peninsula to find peace of mind and get away from the invasive clients and the stressful life in Arawa.
It all starts from the Kobuan village at the base of the Pidia Peninsula, which formerly hosted numerous PNG Defence Force camps in the war from and From the Kobuan village, where most canoes and dinghies for the Pidia village are anchored, the Panguna men — Francis Nazia, Camillus Kabui and myself — and our entourage are sucked away into the bliss fizzled by the singing sea flapping on the sand calmly and the imposing green landmass stretching innocently out into the sea.
It is a picture postcard scene, breathtaking and promising, that the Panguna men love to feel, taste and see. We love to hear firsthand all the tales of the movie, Mr. Pip, recently filmed on this peninsula and see for ourselves all the locations stretching from Pidia village to Pokpok Island.
Our dinghy cuts through crystal clear water so calm and we are mesmerised when schools of flying fish create miniature storms all around us. With a few cool cans of beer the voyage is soul healing and perfect; the supply of adjectives runs short when one attempts to describe the beauty of our motherland, Bougainville.
Pidia Point as seen from the Kobuan village at the base of the peninsula. When the twenty minute boat journey is completed, the Pidia village spreads invitingly before our eyes. Kids run free on the white sandy beach beneath the swaying coconut palms. Unlike Panguna there are no huge gardens, for the people live on seafood and cash earned from selling fish at the Arawa Market.
The people show us all the filming locations of Mr. On the beach we are advised to be careful, for it is infested with giant of clam shells. They have brought the clams back to the village from distant locations and are cared for until maturity for sale at Arawa or consumption.
Most villagers here are employed at the Stevie Doring Nikana at the Kieta Wharf and Arawa, a few run businesses in Arawa and there is also a good population of students.Is it really true that a person who is holding a visit visa departing from philippines requires to get an affidavit of support from sponsor and notarized.
