Black for Democracy ... more rally pictures

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."

Oi, you've got the "Situation still desperate" headline over the wrong story. It should be over the so-called pro-democracy protests. When you've got to rely on someone's Aussie kids to hold the Fiji flag, that's desperate. Enough said.

Thank you all who took part in this protest for giving up your time and resources in efforts to bring some semblance of democracy and get people to speak and act freely in their own country.

This group of greedy people like Frank and Khaiyum have destroyed all of our rights so that we cannot decide things which directly affect us.

These Dictators have destroyed our spirits and have looted our pockets without any feelings at all.

As long as they receive big, fat salaries, make any laws they want which would consolidate their power over the people of this beautiful land and be able to consume liquor and indulge in immoral behaviour they would not give in to a system where the people can decide their destiny by themselves.

Can somebody please, please shoot them? Or just arrest them and hand them over to the public of Fiji! We will love them to death...

YOu have to laugh now and then -some here we very keen supporters of other coups, one should have heaed them during the yaqona sessions. It appears now they not supporting coups? Really, is it Frank they want out or coups they don't support or is it just so they get their own croonies back into Government. Sometimes when you wonder why we have not moved any futher forward-well heres the answer.No wonder we have a confused lot of kids around us who could't care less!

where were these people in 1987 and 2000.
then all thought the coup was good!
some people learn slowly.

at least the coup has sent the chiefs back to where they belong.
they were too much involved with politics and 90% had no education

Cherry Irava's husband has always been seen to be engaging himself in the Fiji Embassy complex as an official of the Embassy. It is high time that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Fiji take note of this - this is an abuse of official responsibilities from Cherry Irava's designational responsibilities, and she should be replaced ASAP.
