Fiji Methodists ‘Song of Solidarity’ Appeal

December 4, 2009

Christmas Gift Ideas
People for Peace Appeal

Fiji August '08 009Our friends in Fiji are currently experiencing a period of political and social turmoil, and are in need of help. The current situation is especially having an effect on the Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma, with whom the Uniting Church of Australia has worked with for over 160 years.

The Uniting Church of Australia made a decision on 20 July 2009 during its 12th Assembly to convey support to the Methodist Church of Fiji and Rotuma. In launching the Song of Solidarity Appeal, UnitingWorld is giving continued expression to this call.

Arising from months of discussions with the Fiji Methodists, UnitingWorld is calling for donations to assist in areas of need such as the nurture of ecumenical and inter-faith relationships, and building leadership skills for an increasingly ethnically diverse country.

President of the Uniting Church in Australia, Rev Alistair Macrae personally pledged support of the Uniting Church of Australia. “There are emerging opportunities for very practical ways that we can show our care. I strongly encourage you to support this appeal,” said Macrae.

    The power of prayer is all encompassing and the leaders of all the faiths should stand united with their various congregations and pray together to bring about an end to this oppressive, demonic Regime.

    R.I.P. in God’s care now :-
    Fijian soldier was shot dead while protecting Afghan elders
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/6711390/Fijian-soldier-was-shot-dead-while-protecting

    This article confirms what we already suspected, that Frank Bainimarama and his fellow soldiers are a result of inbreeding.
    This quite likely explains the behaviour of all in the Regime ! :-
    Increasing number of young adult women choosing to leave Fiji

    I think Reeves is becoming deluded too !
    Doesn’t he know that the Regime is about to collapse, just like Fiji’s economy ? :-
    Reeves Urges Re-Think Of NZ Foreign Policy On Fiji
    http://www.guide2.co.nz/politics/news/reeves-urges-re-think-of-nz-foreign-policy-on-fiji/11/13008

    How much are Frank and Co. getting paid to further involve Fiji with the people’s Republic of china and at what cost to the Fijian community in the long run ?
    Will it include the sale of prime Real Estate ? :-
    HK, Fiji sign air services deal
    http://www.news.gov.hk/en/category/infrastructureandlogistics/091203/html/091203en06004.htm

    It’s good to hear that some progress is being made on an important Social Issue within the Fijian community.
    Hopefully the frustrations that the men may be feeling from Fiji’s current situation, will spill over to and manifest itself into some resistance of this oppressive, aggressive, and barbaric Regime of Frank Bainimarama’s !
    The end is in sight for Frank and Co. :-
    Gender violence campaign essential says Fiji women’s shelter
    http://www.rnzi.com/pages/news.php?op=read&id=50701

    By the way, not only should men not hit children and women, but women should not hit children and men either.
    No one should be hitting anyone, it’s called assault !
