|Anti-regime protest outside the Fiji High Commission in Wellington last week|
The pro-democracy movement is taking its case against the regime to the biggest gathering of the region's political leaders.
The movement is protesting outside the Pacific Islands Forum in Auckland, where leaders from 16 countries are gathering, including the United Nations secretary general, Ban Ki Moon.
The protest has been organised by the Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement NZ, the Council of Trade Unions and Amnesty International.
The rally begins at midday on the corner of Karangahape Rd and Queen Street and protestors will march down to Sky City, where Forum leaders are meeting.
Those living in Auckland who support democracy for Fiji are being urged to join the protest.
And encouraging words today from Ban Ki Moon, who says he wants Fiji to return to civilian rule as soon as possible.
Asked why the United Nations continues to use Fiji soldiers in its peacekeeping missions, he said the UN didn't have a choice at the time because American soldiers were withdrawing and the UN mission needed the Fiji soldiers.
But he insisted no soldier who has violated human rights is included in the UN peace keeping missions.
And he says they're looking at getting peace keepers from other nations like Nepal to replace Fiji soldiers.
