AUCKLAND: Ricardo Morris is fighting two battles.
As journalist, editor and publisher of Repúblika Magazine in Fiji, he works tirelessly to publish and promote his publication.
And as president of Fiji’s Media Association, he works to promote freedom and liberties in a media landscape where military censorship prevailed until 2012.
On 17 September, Fiji returned to democracy. Repúblika did well in covering the elections, especially considering its limited resources.
And Morris hopes that the election will bring with it better possibilities for all journalists in the country.
