The Black Tuesday protest by FDFM in Australia is taking place today despite a suggestion it be deferred because of the floods in Fiji.
Organisers say the plight of the flood victims has not been forgotten but the Canberra protest must proceed as planned at 10am this morning outside the Fiji High Commission at 19 Beale Street, Deakin ACT 2600.
Supporters are being reminded to wear black as are those who are standing up for the cause today wherever they are in the world be it Fiji, New Zealand, Australia, the US, Canada, Britain and Iraq and so on.
FDFM says they will deliver a letter to the Fiji High Commission before moving to the front lawns at Parliament House precinct (Parliament Drive, Capital Hill ACT 2600) where speeches and prayers will be held.
Photos will also be taken and these will be sent to sites such as Coupfourpointfive to help raise awareness about the abuse of power by the unelected government of Frank Bainimarama.
Again, supporters are being reminded to wear Black to symbolise the struggle for democracy and to post their pictures on the net in support of the cause.
People can also use the Black Tuesday badge or flag as their profile pic on Facebook and forward it to friends and supporters.
