Members of the Melbourne chapter of FDFM Australia wear black and stand up for Fiji.
About 50 people protested outside the Fiji High Commission in Canberra yesterday calling for the return of the Great Council of Chiefs and other changes to help restore democracy to Fiji. A protest was also held outside Parliament House.
A letter was to have been delivered to the First Secretary Chery Irava but the regime appointed represnetative refused to accept it or even have it left in the mailbox telling the group she wanted it via Australian mail. Churlish behaviour considering she is supposed to be representing the Fiji people in Australia's capital.
FDFM president Suliasi Daunitutu says the very fact the High Commission refused to accept the letter shows "they recognise us, they know what we stand for and they will not be seen to be entertaining something that could just be what they don't want the world to know."Pictures: FDFM Australia
