well done union members.
ask your govt to sent some sas to fiji to throw the regime out asap.

we cant see atama maharaj.
where is atama and santa maharaj of fiji first party.

Not Protesting now or ever said...

Sadly ,the black Tuesday event will not change the government. This government is the will of God and no matter how many different ways ,one protests it will remain in power for the purpose it was put there. I believe the Romans were in power for hundreds of years and so too were the Itaukei here in Fiji.Why waste your time when it could be spent on more important ways.
Long live Jesus and his will for us mere humans.

To be fair the the rally was always going to include non-Fijians and why not

The Oracle said...

@Anon 1.04pm... Don't take the Lord's name in vain. If you truly believe this government is the Will of God, then you must surely be confused about God.
This government is the result of evil doers cloaking themselves as shepards while preying on the very sheep they publicly proclaim to protect. The world is becoming so overwhelmed with polluted minds that there's now so much confusion over who God really is and what Jesus represented.
Fiji is no longer an exclusively i-Taukei domain. The i-Taukei gave up that right to exclusivity when their chiefs ceded these islands to the United Kingdom.
And Frank is NOT the saviour he and people like you demand we believe. He is a USURPER.
Read your Bible and Pray every day that God will give you the wisdom to understand right from wrong.
@Anon 1.26pm ... agree Fiji faces lacking. But as shown, there are people out there who still know right from wrong - even if they're not kaiviti.

Seti. Pretty bad when a Fiji pro-democracy rally has so many white faces. Why post this? It just plays into the hands of our enemies.

Big vinaka to members of queensland union for remembering the oppressed citizens of Fiji.

Well said Oracle

And so I repeat some of your comment for those trying to give us the wrong steer: "This government is the result of evil doers cloaking themselves as shepards while preying on the very sheep they publicly proclaim to protect. "

And... "Fiji is no longer an exclusively i-Taukei domain. The i-Taukei gave up that right to exclusivity when their chiefs ceded these islands to the United Kingdom.
And Frank is NOT the saviour he and people like you demand we believe. He is a USURPER. Fiji faces lacking. But as shown, there are people out there who still know right from wrong - even if they're not kaiviti."

Instead of stabbing those prepared to stand up for Fiji, be they Viti or Australian, let us stand up and be seen.

Thanks Queenslanders!

@Fijiana...The rally was planned weeks ago - God's wrath on the admninistration of Bainimarama happened AFTER. And if anyone is to be embarassed it's us people who are too apathetic or scared to stand up for ourselves leaving it to kaivalagi to do it.

READ YOUR BIBLE said...

ORACLE...SINCE U CALL YOURSELF ORACLE...ARE U A PRIEST OR PRIESTESS AND HOW MANY GODS DO GIVE PROPHECIES THROUGH U ABOUT THE FUTURE?

SINCE U ARE FROM THE GREECE OF OLD, THEN I AM CERTAIN U HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE BIBLE WE CHRISTIANS READ.

DO U KNOW THAT THE BOOKS IN THE BIBLE OF ALMIGHTY GOD JEHOVAH AND HIS SON LORD JESUS CHRIST EXEMPLIFY EVENTS GOOD OR BAD THAT ESPOUSE PRE-DETERMINATION AND ORDINATION BY GOD ALMIGHTY.

ALMIGHTY GOD ALLOW EVERYTHING GOOD OR BAD TO HAPPEN IN OUR LIVES...MAYBE NOT U AS U ARE ORACLE.

ALMIGHTY GOD ALLOWED BAINIMARAMA TO ACT AS HE DID JUST LIKE HE ALLOWED SO MANY THINGS AS TOLD IN THE BIBLE TO HAPPEN INCLUDING OUR WORLDLY LESSONS OF JOB'S PLIGHT.

TELL ME; ARE U DENYING ALMIGHTY GOD THIS RIGHT TO DECIDE; THAT WHAT ARE TOLD IN THE BIBLE AS UNTRUTHS?

About 50 people are protesting outside the Fijian High Commission in Australia's capital Canberra over what they claim are deteriorating human rights in the country.

Members of the Australian-based Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement have handed a letter of disapproval to the High Commission and will protest outside Parliament House.

They are calling for reinstatement of the Great Council of Chiefs, a representative body of 14 provinces in Fiji.

The organisation's president Suliasi Daunitutu told Radio Australia's Pacific Beat the protest by expatriates expresses the concerns of many Fijians.

"All the news filtering through...and people that we talk to via emails have voiced their concerns about everything that's happening in Fiji but because of all the decrees that are in place in Fiji it's very hard for them to voice their concerns," he said.

"So it's up to the people living overseas, the diaspora, to be the voice for them."

The protesters are wearing black to mark what they call Black Tuesday, when Frank Bainimarama abolished the democratic constitution on this day three years ago.

Similar protests are being held by the movement in New Zealand and the United States.

This type of protest methodology is relevant in a free society where these forms of expressions of dissent are accepted as being within that parcel of rights belonging to the general populace.'

It is recognisable in a democracy because it is an indication of people's views, and is a measure of how voting can be influenced one way or the other.

For Fiji's situation it is unworkable because we have a millitary regime which is in power and which uses its monopoly over arms to supress and subdue and intimidate. This regime is not in power because of the ballot box.

So weather one wears black or blue, its not a form of protest which is recognisable to the regime. They are not (and will not be) answerable to anyone at a ballot box, blue shirt, black shirt, white shirt or even no shirt nothwithstanding.

"About fifty people". Five zero! What is wrong with Fijians living in Australia? 10,000 of them and only a busload observe the anniversary of Bainimarama's treachery! Let's not kid ourselves any more. He's won. We lost. And the only people to blame is ourselves. I am so madua about my country.

Doviverata said...

@Anon 1.04pm, people like you, who can not even differentiate between right and wrong, cannot differentiate good from evil.

People like you are from those group of people delusional of the situation. Or maybe you are one of their bitches, moaning here..

Dont you see, Bainimarama and Khaiyum now know that they dont stand a chance in the elections, they will do whatever they can to remain in power, and if they fail, they are already having their pockets full so that when they are kicked out/retire, they will have abundant $$$ to last their lifetime of luxury. That money probably will be from the tax payers like you and me...

Dont you get that...it is because of the people like you, that these guys reign...fucking hypocrite..

Look at the difference between us and our cousins in PNG!

---------------------


There's a big display of people power in Papua New Guinea against the government's move to defer the country's general election.

Several thousand students from the University of Papua New Guinea are marching to Sir John Guise stadium in Port Moresby.

Thousands of other people are at the stadium to voice opposition to the vote in parliament last week to defer the elections for six months.

-----------

So thousands in Port Moresby and 50 Fijians in Canberra. Says it all, doesn't it?

Anonymouse@1.04. You're one dumb uneducated moron to say that Voceke's government came about because of the will of God. How stupid can you be?

Using your demented logic, are you saying that God gave Voceke and the army free rein to kill people? Did God give Voceke and Aiyarse free rein to rule as they wish, and use corrupt practices to fatten up their bank accounts?

You are a disgrace to humanity, and you should crawl back to Voceke's arse and continue languish down there as that's where you belong.

This is probably another great argument why sanctions should have been applied to the whole country. A blockade of fiji ,trade, airlinks, sea and telecommunications. Fijians clearly are not hurting enough to remove the regime. The idea that the sanctions were not meant to hurt ordinary fijians is fine in theory until the regime persists in power for eight long years and systematically entrenches itself. Too long fijian have been seen as too lazy to do anything about it, this doesn't help disprove that thinking.

As can be seen in some of the foregoing comments, differing interpretations are possible regarding when it is desirable for the Christian to submit to earthly authority. Accordingly, much ink has been spilled on the subject.

For Christians, we should look first to the teachings of Our Saviour and then to the great fathers of the early church.

The synoptic gospels all tell the story of how hostile questioners tried to trap Jesus on the question of whether Jews should pay taxes to the Roman authorities. Jesus drew their attention to the image of Emperor Tiberius on a coin and replied: "Render therefore unto Cæsar the things which are Cæsar's; and unto God the things that are God's."

This passage is often used to argue for the separation of church and state and submission to earthly authority. The apostle Paul also argued for obedience to authorities in Romans 13:1, Colossians 1:16, and Titus 3:1-2, before he himself was martyred by the earthly authorities in Rome. 

What often gets overlooked is the last half of the formula -- i.e., rendering unto God the things that are God's. As Tertullian pointed out in De Idololatria, Jesus is saying to render "the image of Cæsar, which is on the coin, to Cæsar, and the image of God, which is on man, to God; so as to render to Cæsar indeed money, to God yourself. Otherwise, what will be God's, if all things are Cæsar's?"

Leo Tolstoy wrote: "Not only the complete misunderstanding of Christ's teaching, but also a complete unwillingness to understand it could have admitted that striking misinterpretation, according to which the words, 'To Cæsar the things which are Cæsar's,' signify the necessity of obeying Cæsar. In the first place, there is no mention there of obedience; in the second place, if Christ recognized the obligatoriness of paying tribute, and so of obedience, He would have said directly, 'Yes, it should be paid'; but He says, 'Give to Cæsar what is his, that is, the money, and give your life to God', and with these latter words He not only does not encourage any obedience to power, but, on the contrary, points out that in everything which belongs to God it is not right to obey Cæsar."

For some purpose God has allowed Frank Bainimarama to inflict himself upon Fiji. Yet what of the obedience to authority that Bainimarama owed to the lawful government of Fiji? And does Bainimarama's power, which comes from guns, constitute authority, which comes from God?

I believe we should heed the words of Martin Luther. Luther was a major proponent of submission to earthly authority, but he also advocated non-violent resistance when authority is being unjustly exercised. Citing Acts 5:29, Luther wrote: “But when a prince is in the wrong, are his people bound to follow him then too?  I answer, No, for it is no one’s duty to do wrong; we ought to obey God Who desires the right, rather than men."

HEY @READ YOUR BIBLE

Dont mix religion with day to day affairs of the country, fucking Moron.

Christianity wasnt even your religion, back in the day when you used to cannibalize. You/we used to pray to the the gods, not one but many, Dakuwaqa, Degei, to name a few.

Know your shit, count it, then talk...people like you are used in so called "in the name of God" to do the Voceke's shitty works...If in your definition, if God is will good and bad, then dont curse Satan..you ass wipe...

Go to school, then read your bible again to understand it...

oh, FYI, the Oracle is not a religion for the Greeks or Romans. Christianity started in the Middle East in general, Judea to be specific. if your converted, then you couldnt stay true to your own religion, or maybe the missionaries [Marketing] managed to convince you that your former religion was evil or something.

Like I say to all of you people who bring in religions, giving the verses to prove a point, please dont.

There is no need to get Huffy n Puffy. I am just asking so that I can make informed decision on this Party.

See, I am not one of those blind followers that just supports anyone that comes down the road. I ask "Name, Rank, Serial number" before I jump on any band wagon or support. I think this is only wise thing to do. We don't want another Chaudhry situation. He made a fool of us Fijians and hood winked millions of dollars. He is richer and we are poorer.

I certainly feel that it is only right for people to ask. If there is nothing to hide, than why worry? Come out and disclose.

Suli dauniutu, if you're serious about returning Fiji to the rule of law, then you need to organise the removal of Bainimarama and Aiyaz instead of organising these ineffective protests which fail to even make news.

Please don't bother even organising another protest. FB you have won the race. You can have Fiji and rape it dry.

@anon 10.39..
Good that you recognise Chaudhry has no credibility left who you say have become rich by millions.

Now this Anit & Santa whoever they are...I am sure they will introduce the party to the people when they may see fit.

As for their credibility, rest assured you would have never heard of their names as being "PAST" politicians...so rank and position appears to be a non issue.

You see they have not thrown their names out but have thrown the name of party out to the people. That is "FIJI FIRST".

So do you think of FIJI FIRST and your personal agenda later.... maybe they need you to front up for the Party.

As for their Credibility... just read their first 2 Press Releases in C4.5; truthforfiji.com; fijipensioners.com blogs.

The reports if scrutinised properly..you can be the judge of the credibility and balance.

So if you are less tainted than Chaudhry.. you may find a place in FIJI FIRST PARTY !

@ Read your Bible.
I suggest you do just that. READ your Bible. And I also suggest you start THINKING for yourself rather than be LED by others. Otherwise, you are no better than the family dog which wags his tail whenever he gets a free meal. With people like you showing how shallow your reasoning can be, I sometimes wonder whether our family dogs have brains bigger than yours.
You are being screwed by Frank and his cronies and sadly, my family dog probably has more brains to realise that than you do.
Frank's grip on power is the "Will of God"??? ... give me a break. People like you can't think for yourselves so you blame God.

The Oracle and Doviverata sound like none other than Richard Naidu and Graham Leung of reputed notoriety.
EVEN BEFORE the earth WAS CREATED ,god knew of our everymove though we were not even in existance. This like Rabuka's ,George's and Voreqe's Coups were already written in the book upstairs.God doesn't just do good things on the spur of the moment, he rather has a plan for the biggEr good over time which sometimes requires some pain ,suffering and humiliation along the way towards this greater good. I can already see some good here in Fiji with the indigeneous already taking sides with the indian perpetual enemy of Fiji TO TRY TO OVERTHROW THIS GOVERNMENT.Words like "my dear indian brothers and sisters were unheard of a few years ago. SO before you two go swearing at other bloggers, take a minute to think outside the box...it's called LATEAL THINKING.everything is not the way you may like but then when has anyone collectively been happy on Earth since time immemorial????

you words "my dear indian brothers and sisters were unheard of a few years ago...." maybe a new thing for you, coz i know you are the same person, using another name, We at the grassroot level, live in peace in harmony together with indians.

It is the outlook and narrow thinking of your types, who thinks otherwise...which could be a result of lack of education or general knowledge, who has nothing else to do, other than bringing the bible or God into every issue, every debate, and everything else. Like the Oracle said, your types are the ones who wags his tail after getting a free meal..you moron.

you are saying as if God had nothing else to do but instigate a coup through Voceke...m surprised, some of your christian brothers say it is the work of the Devil/Satan.

It clearly shows you incompetence and lack of biblical knowledge, who believes whatever the pastor preaches, it is 100% gods word.

Do yourself a favor, go read your bible and pray to God to save you from the regime...oh sorry, i forgot, you implicate that the regime is godsend...moron

This unknown people behind FIJI FIRST PARTY have done a great job.

Their Press Release in Mara's Blog where it shows Judiaciary are now independent after uplift of "State of Emergency", is what has got Khaiyum to rewrite an amendment decree for Judiciary to swear another oath to cancel their "independence".

Whoever this Anit Singh and Nick Naidu are they have scared off the intelligence of Attorney General's Office.

Boy their opinion really shook the AG's Office.

Question is now will the CJ Act independently and defy the directive of that decree or will he force the judicial appointments to swear in new oath to defy the law despite the State of Emergency is no longer in place to force the CJ to act unlawfully?
