Regime and democracy supporters to face off at Fiji World Cup match


While Fiji battles it out on the field tomorrow night, the pro-democracy movement and the illegal regime will be vying with each other in the stands.

Both camps are urging supporters to wear white at the game against South Africa in Wellington: armbands for those wanting democracy and white generally if you're heeding the 'Go, Fiji Go' call by FRU chair Mosese Tikoitoga.


Tikoitoga: “This is the time to show your true colors, your national pride and the pride in our national team as they prepare to enter the battlefield against the Springboks.”


The secretary of the Council of Trade Unions, Peter Conway, is asking rugby fans to use the occasion to denounce the Frank Bainimarama regime. “Whichever team your supporting at the game, we’re asking you to show support for a fair and democratic Fiji by wearing an armband."


Fiji beat Namibia 49 25 last week so we're hoping it'll repeat the victory. We're also cheering for the ultimate win: a democratic Fiji.

Kemudo, who's desperate now? Really, a contest about who's whiter than white? Neither side is, so give up and enjoy the game.

I played 13 years of rugby in Suva and Fiji is always in my heart.I had played rugby in Australia and show case what we are made of.I will always be remembered by my rugby friends as bringing our island physicality into the club.That always makes me proud to be a Fijian.I always believe in fairness and working hard.I will always support at any cost A DEMOCRATIC FIJI.
All the best boys. To Tikoitoga please go back to your village in Kadavu and see if you are any good with a rugby ball.You have shamed the Kadavu people because you pretend to know something about rugby but you are just a filthy Muani village loser.

How can this do any better???

if you think you want to make fiji a better place, then come forward - give a hand. dont use the internet as a mode to show how much hatred you have for the leaders. pictures showed people praying - why praying for a wrong motive. Ask god in your own wasy to bring Fiji back to glory days.

Stop fooling yourselves. Come to fiji and help your immediate families, that could be better.

There is no problems here in Fiji - stop making noise like a gong and have no love - showing emptiness.

I am not sure about whether sports and politics should mix or not but I am very definite that sports, and (criminal activities, murder, lying, persecution of the poor, robbery, intimidation, violence against women and treachery)do not mix. God bless our Fiji team and make South Africa win.

Banning the Springboks was a good strategy and helped stop Apartheid in South Africa.
In fact, it made a significant difference.

You are correct Mark. After the apartheid regime in SA was thrown out and Mandella was elected president he personally thanked the anti SA rugby tour movements. He said the SA people owed the protestors in Australia and New Zealand a great debt of gratitude. The same thing will happen in Fiji when this Fiji regime is thrown out and Fijians regain their freedom.
Rugby in SA is so much more healthy under freedom than it ever was under oppression and the same will be so in Fiji when this illegal regime is eliminated.

Fiji rugby glory days were over along time ago. Against the Spring bocks they were chasing tails. All too fat, too slow. Perhaps Mr Tai Vovo is not happy with Fiji at the moment. Too many aliens in the country causing trouble.
