FIJI IS INDIVISIBLE - WE CANNOT SEPARATE POLITICS FROM OUR TRADION, FROM CHIEFS, FROM SOCIETY

By VASITI V RITOVA

 

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.

 

They have…

TRIALS, RETRIALS, A NATION DESTROYED BY GREED AND POWER HUNGER

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…

A PICTORIAL EVIDENCE THAT SPOKE CLEARLY. DO WE DENY THEM?

By VASITI V RITOVA

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…

THE HONOR OF STANDING WITH YOU FIJI

By Vasiti Ritova

 

CALIFORNIA, USA (Monday 23 May 2011) - I would always have a great need to understand just who would help me develop my evolving value system and formulate my personality as I grew up in the village. As a young girl, I was surrounded by cousins, uncles and aunts, village elders and all and a radiance flowed out of that…

I DREAM OF A FIJI THAT WILL FINALLY HAVE PEACE WITH ITSELF!

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.

I pray for peace for Fiji, its leaders, its people, the men, the women, young people and children.

Fiji needs peace, lots of it! Let us imagine peace together!

I dream of a Fiji that will finally have peace with itself!…

From the Hive - Bula Bee's August Editorial 2011



 



Ni sa bula vinaka!



As I write this, the flood waters have receded from Cyclone Irene, there are a few down trees and lots of people are still without power in the East Coast. Some families lost loved ones. It could have been a lot worse. I think we’re all pretty lucky.



Storms like this and other emergencies really make you think… Continue
