A march for the elderly? Count me in as I am now seventy! I guess they don't actually mean the oldies are marchin' do they? Do the over 50s or 60s or more get conessions on the buses in Suva, because they don't on the longer bus trips? Maybe they should.

Bula, Wendy. I suppose the march is for supporters including those who look after their elderly parents, aunts and uncles. I am sure that the elderly are most welcome to march too. With regard to the concessions, I understand that they are still on but the process of getting the necessary documentation from the Land Transport Authority is what puts people off.
