Melbourne's Fiji community steps up for global rally

 FIGHTING FOR FIJI: Unions and community in Melbourne.



The numbers were small but passionate. 

Those who took part in yesterday's rallies to highlight workers rights and the treatment of trade unionists, say the campaign keeps the fight for democracy visible and gives morale support to those still living in Fiji, and under the illegal rule of Frank Bainimarama. 

These pictures, today, from the Melbourne rally.

The country's two main unions, FTUC and FICTU, are meanwhile leading the way and promising to keep working together in the interests of workers.

Editor's Note: There have been comments on this forum that mainstream did not cover the rallies. That is incorrect. Note links to stories by ABC and 9News below. There may have been others, too.

Thank you to the Union reps and the few of you who made a site in the media.

Surely this plus your messages will have an impact on Fiji.

Thumbs up for Democracy.
