UFDF and Waqavonovono keep the heat up

Waqavonovono: regime draft fails youth
The second United Front for a Democratic Fiji meeting in Nadi on Friday night unanimously endorsed the resolutions of the first UFDF meeting in Suva to reject the regime Constitution.

In a statement issued today, the UFDF said that the views and concerns expressed by those at the meeting were similar to those expressed at the Suva meeting on Wednesday night.

The UFDF resolution called for:
1) The rejection of the draft constitution which is being imposed on the people of Fiji by an unelected regime in a dictatorial and arbitrary manner
2) Calls on the regime to revert to the Peoples 2012 draft constitution and to submit it to a fully representative Constituent Assembly to be appointed by the President
3) To include the establishment of a Truth and reconciliation Commission to allow the people of Fiji a process with which to heal all of the past ills and move forward together
4) Following the approval of the draft by the Constituent Assembly, the People’s 2012 constitution must be approved by the people of Fiji through a national referendum supervised by the International Community.



UFDF: At least seven meetings coming up
A number of participants in both the Suva and Nadi meetings called for the retention of the 1997 constitution.

The UFDF also announced plans to launch a national Petition of the People to be presented to The President, and international institutions such as the United Nations, Commonwealth, European Union and others as a national expression of no confidence in the Regime and to signify the people’s outright rejection of the 2013 regime draft.

Additional meetings are planned for Lautoka, Ba, Labasa, Taveuni, Nasinu, Nausori and Suva in the coming weeks. Details and times will be announced soon.

The youth activist, Pita Waqavonovono, meanwhile says the regime's draft is a waste of energy and resources, and has called the regime's supporters 'cowards'. 


The youth leader wants the regime to either reinstate the 1997 Constitution or allow the process within the Yash Ghai Draft Constitution to be tabled at a Constitutional Assembly.


Waqavonovono has also called for the amnesty provision in the Bainimarama Draft to be removed saying "If they feel what they did is right in carrying out the coup in 2006, why try to protect themselves and the people behind them! Could they be aware that right from the beginning they were partaking in a series of illegal activities?"


"If this is so, than this Constitution only serves to protect the current regime and is a collection of paranoid writings from a regime that does not entertain dialogue or opposing views".


Waqavonovono says there's a particular danger to the draft: it will take a referendum with a 70% plus majority to change it once it becomes law. And he says it ignores youth. 


"Young people are not guaranteed a voice and are not recognized in the Bainimarama Draft. 


"I would have wanted to see agencies and platforms created for young people and a specific provision provided for aligning all the different youth groups and upskilling as well as  formalizing our current National Youth Council Structure. 

"Instead we have a draft that does little to acknowledge youth in Fiji who make up a large percentage of the Fiji population and are active in formal and informal sectors. 


"A good constitution is one that provide avenues for young people to participate and engage their leaders as well as associate freely in groupings.

"I cant see myself supporting the Bainimarama draft or even considering a living in a Fiji under that Constitution. I am caling on Fiji Citizens to openly oppose the Draft and demand radical changes, if not than a return to the 1997 Constitution."


Waqavonovono says he will make a submission to regime and hopes common sense will prevail.

Excellent work Attar Singh, Richard Naidu, Pramoed Rae, Rev Yabaki, Father Kevin Barr, Mick Beddoes, Mahendra Chaudhry, Jone Kubuabola, Dr Tupeni Baba, Raman Singh, lets take this up with EU, UN and Commonwealth. The Kaiyum draft is a disgrace. I suggest bring in John Samy as well.

No need to make any submission to the regime. Just reject outright their plans. Demand they step aside and a interim civilian government takeover. The 1997 constitution should be restored and amendments made as deemed appropriate by the people.

Naulume said...

Good work.

Just remember to have a PLAN B, in case VB rejects outright what the people want or decrees against opposition to their draft proposal.

Plan B must involve a wretched up public opposition ie move from just words to actual mass community action in terms of demostrations and ,mass public civil disobedience.

Thank you for outright rejection of the proposed draft,,,which will deprive us of our democratic rights.

NO COMPROMISE WITH THIS ILLEGAL GOVT.

editor,
Just heard on SBS television news at 6.30 PM that the popular Egyptian political satirist Bessem Youssef has won his court battle. A Cairo court turned down a lawsuit demanding Yousef's TV show be banned for mocking president Mursi. The decision has been hailed as a"victory for free speech".
But we learn from an Al Arabiya article 'A comedy of error? Undeterred Egyptian satirist mocks Mursi yet again'(6/4) that despite facing legal questioning Youssef continued to poke fun at Egyptian president Mursi and after his court victory he ridiculed the pro-Mursi media and the state prosecution.
I like this. This is as should be in a democracy. The citizens should not treat State officials as if they are demi- gods who should not be questioned or criticized.
At least President Mursi is a lawfully elected president.
But in Fiji we have a regime full of unelected and self-appointed people who not only do not want to be criticized, they want everyone to respect them!
Can you beat that! And what's more they claim they are heading the country towards "true democracy"!
sincerely,

Fiji you are begining to do the right thing in rejecting outright
the Bainimarama/Khaiyum constitution.You should also have rejected the Frieken Ghai constitution as well-they were all
illegal,unenforceable and a piece of toilet papers as far as we,re concern! To participate in it's process,leaves you as an accomplished in proping up this illegal regime!So my advise to you all is to protest,burn a regime supporters' house or stores,beatup
a regime supporters...actually kill
the bastards,take a shot at Bainimarama,Khaiyum,Gate or Samimi?
But FIJI, DO NOT PARTICIPATE in their head games?

1) We do need a Plan B.

2) We should not submit anything to this regime, because it has no legal standing in the first place.

3) We should not try to revise the Constitution at a time when we're under an illegal government. We can put together a Constitutent Assembly and it can begin its work off of the Yash Ghai draft, if it wishes, but only once we have restored a legal government.

I am anti-Bainimarama regime. My position is we in the pro-democracy community should not accept and engage in any plan put forward by this illegal regime. Why should law respecting citizens want to participate in the illegal schemes of this illegal regime? DON'T! It is not the right thing to do. We should be demanding the removal of the regime. Nothing less. But let us not advocate violence and extra judicial action against the regime thugs and their backers. That is the wrong thing to do. If we did that we'd become like THEM! We don't want that, do we? Let us not become a caricature of the regime. We are better human beings. Let us always remember that as we continue our fight to be rid of tyranny in Fiji.

Hey guys did you read Mohammed Aziz's statement yesterday that RFMF will simply ensure that Bainimarama remains PM? Well that's our fates sealed! Means electiosn is useless. If they do not win, the Army will simply do another coup. Also, Aziz's statement means he will be Commander over all the Fijian soldiers and here is someone who wasn't even regimental only a lawyer..and assuring Bainimarama of his future forever and ever.So what say we on that???

Kai Bau said...

Bainimarama already campaigning for his party as per news yesterday in him setting up his party via current government cabinet. How fair is that when he is using government funds to lobby via projects and developments and especially brain washing the innocent rural people in villages? How low can this guys go to protect himself and his family from jail? And here are the stupid soldiers full supporting the very person who said in 2006 that he has no intention to stand for elections. Ie, baci lies again from this compulsive liar. And also, this proves when he did this in 2006, it was really just power he wanted and not to wipe out corruption. Ni yadra na sotia, oni sa mai vakayagataki. Sa na nomuni Commander o Aziz! sa vacava soti nomuni lamulamu!! ke sega sa na nomuni Commander o Kean. Sa kani vuvale ga qo.

The Prime Minister
Frank Bainimarama
Suva.
Bula Frank.

I like to reject the BKC on the following reason.
1.BKC is illegal and your Regime is illegal too.BKC didnt had any imput from the Fiji people and also there is no Elected MP to endorse this illegal BKC.
2.Fiji People have a legal 1997 Constitution .which you promised to uphold in dec 2006 coup. Election to be held under 1997 Constitution as per April 2009 appeal court ruling suggested.
3.I want you to publish all AG Reports from 2007 -2012.
4.Salaries of PM and Ministers from 2006-2013.
5..Govt tenders awarded to companies and amount.
6.Fiji Govt loan taken and debt owed to each Country.Example China /India/Others
7.I like to propose that you sack AG Khaiyum .he is using you and Fijian against fijians.
Frank time you wake up from your deep sleep before Khaiyum and Elite Muslim will destroy Fiji.
I want GCC and Church to be left alone and let them focus on its duties to help Fiji grow.
Our parents had built great relationship of trust with Chiefs and the Native Fijian for a long time and Khaiyum is destroying it and putting All Indian races at risk in Fiji.
hope you will take my advise and i am looking forward for a reply asap.
God Bless Fiji.

editor,
We read in the Fiji Times (8/4) under 'No Challenge' that the illegal Attorney=General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says "after elections in september 2014,the new parliament cannot challenge any decision made under varios decrees put out the government".
Who is Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum to say what the new democratic parliament of Fiji can and cannot do?
What did the Fiji Court of Appeal say about "the government" of the usurper Frank Bainimarama in which Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum is an illegal Attorney-General?
As someone who has had a modicum of legal training (he is my no means a law expert)Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum should know he cannot be the judge of his own course - as he is seeking to do with his pre-emptive pronouncement on the powers of the new parliament of Fiji.
Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum I would contend as no legal authority to make any such pronouncement.

Be afraid, be very afraid!

No challenge

By NASIK SWAMI
Monday, April 08, 2013

AFTER elections in September 2014, the new parliament cannot challenge any decision made under various decrees put out by the government.

Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said when the new parliament sits, it could amend the decrees, get rid of them or keep them but whatever "they cannot apply retrospective changes to the decree".

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the new parliament could get rid of laws it did not like.

"Once the elections are held and the new parliament comes, if they come in and say we don't like this law they can get rid of it but you can't go and challenge any of the decisions that were made under it. For the future, you can change it but you can't go back.

"…you cannot retrospectively go back into any of the decrees. So the new parliament may sit after the election in September 2014. This constitution says specifically that the elections under this constitution must be held no later than September 30 of 2014. So it must be held by then."

Giving a practical example, Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said the VAT being paid now was put in place as a decree by the Rabuka government when there was no parliament.

"When the new parliament got elected under the 1990 constitution, whatever one may think of that constitution, the decree continued ... similarly if you say that any of the decrees that have been put in place by the Bainimarama government can be challenged, it means that people who are now paying 15 per cent VAT can go back and say I only want to pay 12 per cent or 12.5 per cent."

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said there was absolutely no restriction whatsoever imposed on the new parliament to change decrees or to get rid of them altogether.

"They (new parliament) don't like the media decree, they don't want people to pay VAT, they want to get rid of domestic violence decree - they can do that but they cannot say a person who was given a restraining order under the domestic violence decree back in 2007 or whenever that law came into effect should not have been restrained and therefore he or she is liable for damages," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

is it appropriate for Aziz to make a political statement regarding prime minister frank to continue. what will the military do if frank losses? i have information that 80% of the military will vote for sdl - period. in fact frank should be encouraged to leave military and contest the elections. we will take care of him in voting. i have reliable information that military is no longer with him but keep quiet because of respect for command and bread and butter issues. senior officer are just praying he leaves the military and fights the election. once he leaves the military then see the fun!!!

We can see that Frank and kaiyum are indeed sons of Satan.
Frank lied twice to the Serua villagers and in weekend to Naitasiri landowners that there are no changes to laws which affect Native Land. Kaiyum is trying to deflect the issue by raising trivial issues. The removal of entrenched legislation on native land is spreading like wild fire....frank is a liar when he says no changes. This man is the no1 enemy of the Kai Viti with Kaiyum. Both must be stopped asap.
THE INEVITABLE EXPLOSION IS COMING.....WARAKA NAMAKA !!!

It is very obvious now that fear is building up inside iarse in view of what he is explaining about one aspect of the regime constitution that whatever decrees passed up until now cannot be changed with retrospective effect. He cites other examples but deliberately did not mention the immunity decree or clause in the constitution. He covertly tried by using the VAT example to apply an ironclad cover over this immunity thingy to save his ass as the obvious ominous sign is getting clearer. Do the crime do the time mate.

Just a slight distraction. Saw a news article in the US that some high profile politicians have raised their concern over why Beyoncé and Jay-Z went to Cuba for a holiday. Cuba had been under US economic embargo for its human rights abuses and the politicians see this trip as a support to totalitarian regime in Havana. And just last week or so Fiji decides to send some students for studies over there. We need to hear from the same politicians about their views on Fiji's human rights abusing regime. There should be equal condemnation to all dictatorships.

editor,
The so called "public consultations" the illegal Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum is having with "rural advisory councilors,roko tui,other provincial administrators,registered organisations, non-governmental organisations and members of the public" to,as he puts it,"explain the rationale for the draft's provisions" (FT 8/4)is nothing but regime brainwashing propaganda.
The real public consultations are taking place elsewhere where regime lackeys can't peddle their propaganda on the draft constitution and where far better legal minds gather to critique the draft.
And we know what the public reaction is at these genuine public consultations - a rejection of the regime's self-serving constitution!

After the revelation of the illegal land swap in Momi bay that occurred under Qarase's watch, these SDL clowns are now quietly abandoning the land issue in the draft constitution after documented evidence demonstrates they have tangled with Fiji politics' third rail.

Now the political opportunists are climbing on board the youth issue with Waqavonovono at the helm.

What's next? Raising complaints that the draft constitution does not specifically mention people who are left handed or people born with extra Y chromosomes in their DNA?

Wake up people of Fiji, fight for your rights. It is wrong for QARASE to convert native land to govt freehold, YET IT IS RIGHT FOR BAINIMARAMA AND KHAIYUM TO ROB THE TAXPAYERS OF FIJI...

It is right for the military government to CONTINUOUSLY THREATEN NATIVE LAND OWNERS with compulsory acquisition of their LANDS if they don'tuse it.. IT IS RIGHT FOR THEM TO DO THAT.. yet IT is wrong for Qarase GOvernment with the approval of Landowners to transfer their land to Government for development purposes!!

The legal one is the 1997. Hold elections under that one first. then move on from there.

How can get this legalised if u keep following the illegal path. setting another bad precedent after coup after coup.
