The local sub-committee of the Falkland Islands Association which has in various forms defended Falklands' interests since 1968, has sent out an email to all its members asking them “to give a rough outline of how they view the current political situation together with any ideas or fears they may have for the future and anything they would like to see the FIA doing on their behalf.”
Admitting that “since 1982 there has been no great need for the Association to have been very active as our MLAs now travel extensively and the Islands have been well represented by the FIGO rep, Sukey Cameron” in what is presumably a reference to Brexit, a possible general election in Britain and the Argentine presidential elections the letter continues, “with more recent events in and out of the Islands, we may need to be more politically aware and be ready to respond to events here and overseas.”

We may need to be more politically aware and be ready to respond to events here and overseas, the email to members said.
Is there a way the FIA feels its members may respond to events such as Argentina's presidential election in October?
Would be interesting to know.
