Fiji regime fobs rallies off with 'we are holding free elections in 2014'
FUTURE OF FIJI: Young at rally.
Some acknowledgement by the regime of the workers rallies but the response was fairly predictable.
A government statement quoted by FBC said the regime is preparing for free and fair elections in 2014 and that the illegal government has "enacted a series of reforms and issued decrees that provide the Fijian people with fundamental guarantees to essential human rights and employment protections. These are recognised by principled governments and labour and social organizations the world over."
Meanwhile, a wrap up from the web campaigns office for the Australian Council of Trade Unions shows the rallies got some pretty good media coverage.
