The United Nations has condemned the actions of the security forces, made up largely of Frank Bainimarama's personal bodyguards and Ioane Naivalurua's strike back team, plus Corrections officers.
A satement by the spokesperson for the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, Rupert Colville, clearly shows concern.
“While the circumstances surrounding the video have not yet been ascertained, the acts being carried out in it are clearly illegal, and we condemn them in the strongest terms,” he told reporters in Geneva.
Colville (pictured left) and co will have to do more than issue a statement to impress those who've been urging the UN for some time to show teeth, even ban the Fiji peacekeepers.
"We as Fiji Citizens in Fiji and Globally wait for United Nation High Commissioner for Human Rights to send an Independent International Investigation Team to examine Fiji's Historical Timeline of Human Rights Abuse."
The New Zealand Labour Party and the Green Party are also keeping the pressure on the regime with Labour this week preparing to pass a motion in Parliament condemning the Suva regime.
It's hard to see New Zealand MPs snubbing the motion with leader of New Zealand First, Winston Peters, already saying he intends to vote in favor of the motion.
He has told media the Fiji military should lose its access to lucrative UN peacekeeping duties, and the British Army should stop hiring Fiji soldiers.
"[These organisations] have not been nearly as understanding and supportive as they should have been," he said. "They simply have not respected the Pacific wish to see proper democracy operating throughout the whole region."
The Green Party is also on the right track with its call for an independent investigation spearheaded by the international community.
The party's human rights spokesman, Jan Logie, (pictured middle) endorses the push for Fiji to be hit where it will hurt: "It is shameful that the United Nations is still using Fijian peacekeepers while human rights abuses are carried out by the Fijian military and police."
The video has also given people new momentum. In New Zealand, the Wellington community is planning to protest outside the Fiji embassy on Friday.
At home, the video has encouraged a call for citizens to use their cellphones to video senior government officers, army officers, police officers acting illegally or being abusive.
Intel sources are warning people taking part in the Say Nothing Video Everything campaign, though, to watch out for the police cyber unit.

One of the accused has meanwhile told Coupfourpointfive he was not part of the group that carried out the assault on Korovou escapee, Iowane Benedito, and the man accused of harbouring him.
Peni Gauinemeke, who was singled out by several people in the video clip pictured wearing the striped shirt and work boots, says he was in Taveuni watching rugby the day the assault was carried out, suggesting he knows the exact day the beating occurred.
He also told us the group involved was from Nabua before he deactivated his Facebook account.
