You are invited to share and pen your ideas, views or opinions that will facilitate/assist our country back to democracy. All positive and/or negative ideas and comments to steer us back to the road of democracy are welcome.

Whichever way one looks at our current situation back home, democracy has been completely raped. The rape of democracy in Fiji is a virtual degradation of the populus of Fiji. Their human rights are being deprived:

1. the right to decide their government;
2. who they want to represent them;
3. their right to free assembly;
4. free protest;
5. free to organise into groups so that they can talk about what is pertinent to their daily lives;
6. protest on issues they do not agree with....with no fear of intimidation from anybody.

With this military regime in place, the concept of freedom per the Constitution is a total myth!

And, we, the people of Fiji need to come together and be vehement about our total disagreement with the military regime. So give us liberty or death! The reality of the issue is that democracy in Fiji has been raped...from top to bottom...left to right....inside and out and vice versa!

Here we have a military regime that talks about freedom to the people and yet the very same military regime randomly arrest people, torture them, inflict unnecessary harrassment and emotional stress to those that seem a threat to them. The military regime talks about racial unity.......the communal concept of togetherness and yet Fiji is far more racially divided today than it ever was.

The so-called advisors, viz-a-viz, John Samy, these are rejects from their adopted countries and yet they are being rewarded with exuberant amount(s) of money by these rogue military regime who have no idea what they are doing. Lying to the international community does not augur well with this interim government and yet the interim Prime Minister continuously talks with a forked tongue when addressing international issues. The ministers talk about internal securities as if Fiji is going to be invaded.

All around it is clearly seen that the economy is in tatters and the Constitution is just a useless piece of paper. The rule of law is as what the military regime wants it to be.

The above are just some of my views (from a pro-democracy viewpoint). But, do not let that deter you from penning your comments if you share otherwise.

So, let us come together and voice our views/comments, whether they be for or against the military regime and have a very healthy discussion here so that in the end we can factually understand what our role is, what we need to do and how we can come up with ideas to help restore democracy back in our beloved Fiji!

Please feel free to write what you like or dislike about the military regime. Be sincere and honest about your thoughts, without getting personal or spiteful.

Kindly note, this "topic" will expire as soon as we have an election.

Unemployed may get overseas work opportunity
Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Unemployed people registered with the National Employment Centre may get a chance to work overseas - with the introduction of a new Foreign Employment Service.

National Employment CEO Vilimoni Baledrokadroka says the new service will be introduced in January next year.

Baledrokadroka says individuals will be given the chance to work abroad if opportunities arise.

They will also be introducing a new volunteer service.

"The Fiji Volunteer Service will be launched soon as a component of the National Employment Centre and is hosted under the Public Service Commission. We just had our NEC Board meeting in the last two weeks and the Board where the Board was informed of the way forward particularly on the Fiji Volunteer Service."

Baledrokadroka says - the concept of the new Fiji Volunteer Service is similar to that of America's Peace Corp.

Suva's tourist rating improves
Wednesday, October 19, 2011

Tourists have been reluctant to visit Suva in the past.

Special Administrator Chandu Umaria says rating on the visitor arrivals in Suva recorded a low of 42%.

Umaria says visitors are reluctant to visit the capital as they are harassed by sword-sellers and the city is not clean enough for the tourists.

Last year - only 8 cruise liners visited Suva.

However, the numbers have increased steadily with a 67% increase in Suva's ratings.

"Come next year - we are planning to have the Thurston Gardens tourism attractions where the Council will be spending a lot of money to upgrade Thurston Park. At the same time - we are working with a company - they'll be doing fire walking every time cruise liners come to Suva. There'll be a lot of activities when tourists come to Suva - not just shopping."

So far this year - 18 cruise liners have visited Suva - with six more expected before the end of the year.

Bonus payments for 'superior performance' while kids starve

Face of Poverty. pic Fiji Times

The illegal government's politicking has become blatantly obvious with employees in state owned enterprises receiving bonuses while close to 50% of Fiji's population live below the poverty line.
Bainimarama on the campaign trail
The poverty data is a reality and a fact, and was given to the media by PS for Social Welfare, Govind Sami, who also stated that many workers are earning wages far less than what they should be paid.
The illegal PM has been on the campaign trail giving water tanks and making promises of fixing roads and providing electricity to rural areas while the illegal AG has turned his attention to city dwellers and employees of state-owned enterprises.
The illegal government should wake up from its slumber and take itself out to rural areas and low-income areas to see the reality on the ground; people are struggling to put food on the table and parents are finding it increasingly difficult to shop for basic necessities.

More than $1.6 million in bonus payments have been approved by the Fijian Government to employees of six state-owned enterprises that outperformed during the 2009 and 2010 fiscal years - rewarding staff for superior performance.

Frank and Aiyaz’s new Fiji is more ghettos and extreme poverty

Urban Sprawl – The Ghettos of Suva…

October 7, 2011 at 9:32 pm

Fuente: Korea Times (5 de enero del 2010)


Excluding its big guns and weapons of mass destruction, North Korea is not a functioning country and has long lost its competition with South Korea, as a recent economic comparison released by Statistics Korea indicates.

The comparison shows that South Korea's per-capita gross national income (GNI) amounted to $17,175 at the end of 2009, about 18 times larger than the $960 tallied for the North. The South’s population is about twice as large as that of the North.

The South's nominal GNI totaled $837.2 billion, which is 37.4 times larger than the North’s $22.4 billion.

GNI is often regarded as a truer indicator of a given country’s economic power.

Asia’s fourth largest economy posted $686.6 billion in trade of 2009, compared with $3.4 billion for the North.

South Korean companies exported $363.5 billion worth of products, while imports amounted to $323.1 billion. Exports and imports by the North stood at $1.1 billion and $2.4 billion, respectively.

In 2009, the South produced 48.57 million tons of steel last year, compared with 1.26 million tons by the North. Cement production by the South reached 50.12 million tons while the North produced 6.13 million tons.

In addition, the data showed that the combined length of roads in South Korea was tallied at 104,983 kilometers, 4.1 times longer than 25,854km in the North. Power generation by the South was 18.5 times larger than the North.

The North, however, led the South in the production of coal, its main kind of fuel, and total length of railroads, the primary means of transportation for long distance travels.

The significance of the gap is made miniscule, considering the South relies on a much wider range of means of transportation including airplanes or buses and private cars and no longer uses coal as its primary energy source.

Statistically speaking, the gap in terms of economy is so big that a comparison is meaningless.

The North is trying to make up for the gap with its military might. It still enjoys a numerical advantage in terms of military hardware, although experts say that their tanks and airplanes are outdated and can’t compete with South Korean weapon systems.

One thing that Pyongyang has plenty of is its adventurism that was illustrated by its artillery attack on Yeonpyeong Island in the West Sea and torpedo attack on a South Korean naval vessel.

Pyongyang still insists on its military-first policy with much of its scarce resources being devoted to maintaining its armed forces.

This, together with its rigid central planning, is attributed to losing its headstart over the South after the 1945 liberation from Japanese colonial rule that left more industrial infrastructure in the North than in the South.
