This is the fourth year that the Military Regime has taken over the SDL/FLP multicabinet government and in that time, have gone against the principles of democratic society, they have misinformed the people and the world and have shown their unproffesional and uneducated methods of governance that has brought shame to patriotic Fijians who have a deep feeling for their identity and a sense of belonging.
Underlying the declining economic growth,is an array of interrelating factors. Key among them are the drop in tourist numbers and investors. When these two key economic boosters are not addresed, a vicious cycle transpires, starting with the unemployment and loss of income, closing down of establishments, poor perfomance in local businesses, crime rate escalates, over worked and under paid workers...I can continue all the way down to poverty - and I haven't left the Western side and the hotel/resort businesses.
Imagine if I was to make an assumption on the repercussions of this negative economic growth right across the board, I think that no one will be happy at the end of it.
So, I am making a proposal to all those who want Fiji to have an election this year 2010. Please put your name here, where you live, and preferably a photo of yourself. This list will be attached to a letter requesting a return to the polls for our beloved country and sent directly to Bainimarama. If you think that Fiji needs Democracy and not Dictatorship, free to excercise their constitutional rights, have better health and educational systems and STOP THAT VICIOUS CYCLE please stand up and be counted.
Show Fiji you care, show them, that the democracy we are enjoying overseas should be enjoyed by them too. Sign here and I promise you it will find its way to the PM's office. After that we will let all the International Organisations and all our international friends know that we have put it to the Illegal PM - our desire and what we deserve. Vinaka.
