CALIFORNIA, USA - Too many people have a complete disregard for the platform on which the Great Council of Chiefs was established.
People like Mosese Tikoitoga, Graham Davis, Sharon Smith, Aiyaz Khaiyum, Voreqe Bainimarama, and many times, Akuila Yabaki, and all their supporters, have showed themselves to be too ignorant of the pertinent issues that made and still will make Fiji under the Great Council of Chiefs.
There were a few trials on the mutiny and the political upheavals of those years Sorby...the first one that we covered for weeks was the court martial for the CRW soldiers who executed the mutiny of November 2000.
That court martial was the trial of the CRW soldiers who executed the mutiny and it was always held at the RFMF Officers Training facility in Vatuwaqa, and was presided over by Lt/Col Ilaisa…Continue

Bula Bee and my Facebook Page this week accumulated a universal controversy as to whether showing such graphic exposure in the photos of murdered Fijian soldiers should have seeped onto our computer or laptop screens.
The capture, beating, torture and subsequent murder of some members of the Counter Revolutionary Warfare (CRW) Unit of the Republic of Fiji Military…Continue

Violence is not just political violence.
Violence comes in all shapes and forms.
The result is the same. Putting illegal decrees that restrict freedom of expressions, of information, of worship, of travel, of work, is violence.

Fiji needs peace, lots of it! Let us imagine peace together!
I dream of a Fiji that will finally have peace with itself!…Continue
