What it takes to survive in Fiji today

Ill-informed kaivalagi may be raving about Fiji's tyrannical self-appointed prime minister but those living front line and qualified to speak have a better grip on reality.

In a recent Luvei Viti thread, the following was noted: "Just heard today from a very close relative that one of their European colleague has just returned from Fiji & about to go back. 

"This is the story: 'We are so pleased with Bainimarama. He has done so much for the people of Fiji. Even those outside Suva are happy. He is building up good political support & he may just win in the election in 2014!'
"All these rhetorics came to an abrupt halt when the person was asked about Human Rights Abuse & killing of innocent people in Fiji. In addition, a question on how Bainimarama has removed the Fijian Race & reduced all Indigenous Fijians to itaukei which is not a race but a universal tag that is used for being in possession of anything or eg owner of a shop or owner of a bag or jacket or similar in a literal sense! The person could only utter back....well yes, Binimarama will need to answer up to that after the election in 2014 - If it HAPPENS."

Also noted was this staunch reply from blogger Discombobulated Bubu, whose memorable sizing up of the situation we've posted here.

It is unfortunate indeed that those who live within high gated compounds and have the means to do so seem to be very eager to support the status quo - the "in" crowd. Not all, but enough of them to cause us to have furred eyebrows :(
Most of those that need the work to support their families put their heads down and ignore everything else - survival mode only .. and we cannot blame them (this includes journo's and lawyers).

Those soldiers that had any principles were culled early and deliberately from the army, and what you have left are those that follow the same aspirations as it's leader - following the path to the quick acquisition of riches and promises of bright lights - those that cannot or will not question the lack of principles inherent in the army culture these days. You only have to look at the army website these days to see how far they have fallen. It looks truly like an insane person smoking weed wrote it. It has nothing to do with "armed forces" but a propaganda tool for the regime.

Those who dare still protest in one form or another whether by writing letters or turning up personally to talk are targeted in "vengeance attacks" by the regime .... my family amongst others are a good example - they are doing to us what they did to TuSaki and Imrana - targeting us through their controlled courts - so they can bring us to our knees financially so that we give up or go away. They have trumped up totally false charges against us involving FRCA, then they put a garnishee order on our bank accounts as well so we can't touch our funds and have to borrow from relatives (who are fast running out of funds themselves). This is the kind of (dare I say it) kai idia mentality that is so alien to us culturally and that makes us really really sad.We know for a fact that both Bainimarama and Ayarsi are both personally involved in the directions 'from the top' to make this happen.

This reflects their culture of vengeance, and the base of fear and anger that their modus operendi works from. The regime had to kill a few people, and continue their physical intimidation of people so that they could spread fear in the population , and to some extent they have succeeded.

The regime continues to target those in the population they can "bribe" with 'gifts' of classroom blocks and village amenities and utilities via monies diverted from either the public purse or from donors and masked as if it comes from Bainimarama personally, and via his controlled media, he is slowly building a persona of the great benefactor. This is backed up with each photo and TV appearance carefully crafted to look as if there is a huge amount going on in the country. Ceremonies and graduating classes here and there, and people benefiting from this course and that programme.  There is HUGE crafty propoganda going on here.

In the meantime Bai does what he likes (like going to France on the pretence that he is going to collect a plane - and then we are finding out that he actually took his mataqali to see Lourdes all on the public purse - none of which was mentioned anywhere in the media) And while they do this, they are economically depowering a huge percentage of the population base , so that in the end, people have no choice but to be subservient as where else is funding going to come from ? ..... they have also targeted Chiefs and sub chiefs in this way dividing as they go.

Whats really sad is to see the moral decay, and the distress this has caused within society and families. Families no longer to speak to each other openly in case someone pots them in. Friendships are strained and many people just plain cannot trust anyone else these days. This has caused great stress and strain internally for a lot of people and the flow on effect has been huge as we have witnessed with the massive increase in mental issues, suicides, domestic violence and prostitution. The young children will grow up seeing these traits and thinking this is normal. Unless parents are very strong with good values, this is a truly frightening phenomena.

So unfortunately the future is bleak in terms of realising a truly free and fair means of electing our government reps UNLESS it ends in blood - WHICH ACCORDING TO MY CRYSTAL BALL, it will do.  Unfortunately and sadly although we do not wish it,  I see a physical eruption at some stage. And we should be ready with a contingency plan for our people's safety when it does happen.

Fantastic synopsis and spot on. Unfortunately, the international community, especially our neigbours who have the resources to help the oppressed people of Fiji have clearly displayed their lack of leadership and "balls" to assist the oppressed people in Fiji.

These two four eyed poor excuses for men are only "sunshine" politicians who can only stand aside with their soft useless sanctions, while bainimarama continues to intimidate, brutalise, rape, steal native lands, increase unemployment and poverty levels, etc.

In the end our neighbours' Politically Correctness are nothing more than tits on bull - doing nothing, while allowing bainimarama's evil to continue and increase.

australia's seat on the UN security council is only "rhetoric" - just like a bakola saying they have a PhD but have no idea on how to apply it to help others.

Oh oh here come the haters and trolls from the regime. Too obvious dogging on at Imrana and Rajend N ... the democracy movement is bigger and above that.Go back to Grubbysheet !

It's Fear Factor in Fiji and everyone losing themselves in their Facebook and online activity as escapism.

But the sentiments are spot on here - family turned against family in fear while everyone swallows the propaganda.

Somebody needs to snap the spell but again as posted the end could be painful for all.

Where were the fijians in 87 and 2000 when indians were the victims.

Do we call ourselves christains or is it that people are using us as political football.

Where was the fight for democracy and good governance then? Is the blood or fijians worth more than others?

Why is it that politicans and so called politicals parties (SdL, NFP & FLP) fighting to be registered etc when they feel the 1997 constitution is supreme?

There is no doubt that Bainimarama has done so much for the people in spite of pressure on funding. The previous govts had money but they all spent it on themselves and its corrupt supporters.
Bainimarama will win the elections . He has the support of the majority who understand him. Sorry to note the losers on this blog will continue to cry ....

The "pressure on funding" is only there because Bainimarama reneges on every pledge. Donors don't trust him, believe him, or want to reward his bad behaviour.

Bainimarama has tried to use massive borrowing to compensate for the income he cost Fiji through his treason and intransigence. Again, this spending doesn't come from a stronger economy. It all comes from the massive sums Bainimarama has borrowed against Fiji's future and credit.

Fiji is paying usurious interest rates on these loans because Bainimarama wouldn't accept the accountability required by international financial institutions for loans at normal rates. That money is going almost exclusively to Bainimarama's sychophantic supporters and arse lckers, but it will need to be paid back by all Fijians, to the next two generations, and with interest.

Regardless of what amry trolls or Fiji's tightly controlled media say, if Bainimarama had the support of the majority, he would have called snap elections a long time ago. He's had his intel people conducting polling all along. Bainimarama's reluctance to hold elections proves the continuing lack of support for his regime.

Talking about doing what needs to be done to get by, people like Ben Padarath is a good example of the sort of insiduous behaviour to come out of Fiji.

He was exposed as being a thief and got the bash from regime soldiers but continues to suck on Bai's big one.

This his comment on C4.5 fan page on facebook

Ben Padarath I fully understand where the CEO of the Fiji Sports Council Mrs Litiana Loabuka is coming from. Satish Narain should have shown a little bit more professionalism and simply called up Mrs Loabuka to voice his concerns with regards to the loud music during the coke games, instead of publicly broadcasting his opposition to it over the television in an attempt to belittle Mrs Loabuka. The team at the Fiji Sports Council under the guidance of CEO Mrs Loabuka and the Fiji Sports Council Board have done a magnificent job in preparing the ANZ Stadium to international standards and deserve all of our support for the good work that they have put in. Please continue to keep up the good work and don't be swayed by these useless comments!!!!!

Goodness sake, I cannot comprehend why was there any need to consult Mrs Loabuka about the music. Can't anyone turn down the volume..it would have avoided so much publicity!
