Bainimarama Tunnel Vision or No Tunnel?

March 11, 2010

Isn’t it all a charade especially now that the three major political parties (SDL, FLP and NFP) have been banned from the process for being involved in the recent over 600,000 ‘toilet paper’ petition?

Given the abject ‘staged’ failure of the 2009 Presidents Political Dialogue Forum, it seems the regime is as confused as us all. For more CLICK HERE

    Bhaini,marama must be have been looking through a wrong tunnel when he came up with this tunnel vission.

    Is he coming back with the former SVT Govt..?

    Perhaps he’s breeding a new lot of politician from delainabua, the left over ones (without any govt.. post).

    Fiji needs the expertise and brilliant mindset of people who knows waht it takes to bring Fiji back from economic catastrophe,we surely don’t need amateur doing a guessing game(like what he’s doing now) when we have a do or die situation in our hands.

    We want our previously elected Govt. back, Ta Qarase & Co. to revive and bring back some form of hope,and prosperity, desperately needed by the people.

    What has bhaini and his group achieved so far :

    1) Making a mockery of the Justice system
    2) Screwing up the economy
    3) Lack of investor confidence
    4) Militarising the public service and demoralising Civil Servants
    5) More fraud is currently being practiced due to lack of govt..check sysytem in place due to fear of civil servants
    6) Further screwing the FSC
    7) Lack of job opportunities
    8) Inflation due to devaluation n descending govt foreign investments
    9) More govt loans being done from china which the taxpayers will be footing in future
    10) Subjecting people to more poverty and fear.

    Theres more to this and u guys all know about it,these are just a few things, that hinders growth of a nation as a result of one mans greed.

    Satan was thrown out from heaven because of one little thing, which is called GREED.Of course Bhaini,Marama with this principles could be easily clasified, u guys are smart u do the math..

    Teleni(Co-Conspirator) with all his merry making tour, steaming around fiji, forcing the police band to fulfill the illegal govts show of devotion/embracing idea of holy encounters, has lost the plot himself.Where is Atu by the way, Soko can u find out,bro….

    Bhaini has a lot in his plate bcoz all his boys at the camp are looking for overseas mission posts, the greedy ones like Lewinsky,Driti and others, bhai should just send them to work at the farms overseas.Become farmhands shoot cattle n shit,thats what they good for, at least send some money back here to help the economy.

    Sa dri yani.

    Koya Na Baku.

    Here is something to take the heavy load off your day.

    Na ka e tukuna o Jemesa mo solia vei Atu na kei Atu .

    Na ka e tukuna tale o Jemesa mo toka i cake o Atu ka davo i ra o iko.

    How the hell am I suppose to know where this dullard is, the last I heard he was up Bai’s ring.

    Peace be with you.

    Peceli Rinakama has been kidnapped by the military and is now in danger to be tortured and murdered as others before him. The question is how much more do we want to take from the dictator? The record of this regime is summarized in the contribution above. It is time to do something.

    I suggest that we reassure ourselves by wearing a little blue ribbon in the colour of our beloved flag at our wrists, shirts, in our hair, light blue t-shirts, wherever…So everyone who sees another citizen wearing our national colour knows that they are not alone in their contempt for this regime that tramples on our human rights and ruins the economy of our beloved country. As a next step, we should think creatively how to undermine the dictatorship. Letters and e-mails to the UN (especially to the SG and head of UNDP) to the EU, the OZ, US and NZ governments, the Commonwealth etc will have some impact. Civil servants can through a million of spanners into the works. Let’s do it. Legal action can be taken outside Fiji. Crimes against humanity can be prosecuted internationally and Cassava Frank would not be the first dictator being presented an arrest warrant on foreign soil. I understand that there is something in the making in New Zealand to that effect.

    Next we should think about action at home. Modern communication technology offers incredible opportunities. Blogging is fine but the internet offers a host of other possibilities, which we need to explore. Imagine we stage a peaceful protest against the GESTAPO methods used by the regime and everyone carries a little camera, phone or otherwise. Everything the dictator does to oppress our human rights would be out on CNN and BBC more or less immediately. At this stage we do not need a leader or a headquarters that can me raided by the goons or a charter. The only thing we need is action in the shadows led by a common goal: to oust the dictator and return Fiji to its people.

    A lot more credence will be given if only the collated figures can be corroborated, while the strength of those committed to expedite the immediate return to Democracy is commendable they ought to at the very least be willing move away from using extremely boring verbosity and to hasten the demise of these wicked bastards.

    The latter can only be achieved by means of an act of aggression and this is something we are not prepared to attempt therein lays the futility that has plagued us all.

    U r like an action pack cow(ard)boy, saying we are all talking too much no action, don’t worry action will come my friend, patience is a virtue.Na bulimu e na misi, when its time,dau wawa, ‘ua ni dau vakaraitaka nou gone ‘oco’oco,me vaka au sa dau tukuna tiko.

    Nothing has plagued us, we are still here, committed to the course, u may be the lost sheep in our midst still confused of what’s happening, someone should show u the way, the hard way(e na kaka,o na misi sa va’aca, io mo vosota ga, e na dakuni rarawa e na basika kina na vinaka,mo vinaka).

    Dau tauri ko vakamalua,bind tiko mai, kua ni liu muritaki keimami tiko,u r like a judas amongst us, the die hard disciples of democracy.

    Be reminded this is a process, it might take time, but good will overcome evil, surely.

    These news article is very disturbing to me and has been an ongoing trend everywhere FB goes. What are our people thinking ?

    Villages present tradtional apology to PM Publish date/time: 10/03/2010 [17:04]
    The 14 villages in the Island of Koro presented a “matanigasau” or traditional apology to the Prime Minister, Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama today seeking his forgiveness after they did not support the People’s Charter when it was brought to the island.

    Speaking to Fijivillage News, former Methodist Church Stewart in Koro, Maika Ravoka said they make up the biggest number of those who did not support the charter and they kindly asked Commodore Bainimarama to accept their traditional apology to him and the government.

    Ravoka said he was one of the key figures that worked with the church in telling the villagers not to support the charter but they are so grateful that the Prime Minister still has time for them with the development that has take place in the island.

    He added that the opening of the new copra mill in Nacamaki showed the commitment of the Bainimarama government in developing rural areas especially the island of Koro which relies on copra for their survival.

    Ravoka then compared Bainimarama to the biblical story where the Israelites spent 40 years in the wilderness of Egypt before they were led out to the Promised Land in Canaan and he believes that after 40 years of our independence, Commodore Bainimarama will take the people of Fiji into the future.

    He then told the government delegates that the Island of Koro will support any moves undertaken by the Prime Minister to lead the nation to a better place for all races.

    Meanwhile Commodore Bainimarama, while opening the new copra processing plant in Nacamaki this morning, told the people of Koro, that his Government understands that while officials were travelling around the country talking about the People’s Charter, those in authority in the villages in Koro did not support the Charter.

    Commodore Bainimarama adds that despite this, the Government is carrying on with it’s development projects, like the one that was opened in Nacamaki this morning

    Today let’s spare a thought and a prayer for our people on the ground back in Fiji and the pending destruction cyclone Tomas is predicted to wreak.

    Like everything else our people like their forbearers are resilient.

    @ Nacanieli Rogoimuri

    To me it was more sad than disturbing! I am angry at these people because how could anyone in their right mind accept and glorify a coup leader, a criminal?

    Most of all I am very sad because I know this way of thinking is prevalent in any struggling society. It also comes with the lack of education.

    This is what I was afraid of, “taukeis” like the Koro people taking the bait that these criminals dish out without thinking it is the job of any democratically elected govt. They haven’t a clue that these criminals are taking from Paul to pay Peter as to win their support. I was never afraid of the coup leader and all his supporters. “Thank goodness I don’t have to rely on them for my livelihood.” “Yes because I live in Australia but always my heart goes out to my birth country where I spent the first 21 years of my life, the best anyone could wish for.”

    It seems now these people with have to learn the hard way because like Koya na Man said: “GOOD WILL OVERCOME EVIL.”

    Perhaps Cyclone Tomas will hit Koro the hardest and destroy the coup leader’s new Copra Processing Plant? What then for the people of Koro?

    They say the Lord works in mysterious ways!

    Coup4.5 has an excellent summary of the Fijian injustice system

    US State Department releases report on Fiji Human Rights Practices
    The Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor has released its 2009 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices.

    thanks for bringing that here
    it’s a big problem
    fijians are very easily hoodwinked
    the type of mentality that nurtures coup cultures

    they don’t know that they are entitled to developmental upgrades
    accept and enjoy it without thinking they are beholden to anyone —
    if there is anyone they should be thanking in tabua and gifts it should be the fiji indian business communities who fork out
    the bulk of taxes to pay for those projects
    Bainimarama and his mob don’t have monies of their own to pay for anything

    matanigasau ni voco

    Isn’t time Fijians controlled and owned their own Enterprises, if even in partnership or as a co-operative, but sharing the cost, the employment opportunities and bounty ?

    I had to laugh at the ‘idiotorial’ in the comedy sheet this morning praising the Fijian navy.

    Nowhere did they mention that only TWO of their boats are seaworthy whilst the other 6 lie idle awaiting repairs. { for which, there is no money }

    When you also think about their reluctance to travel more than a few miles out to sea to assist mariners in distress, one has to wonder about the cause of this immoral behaviour.

    * Is it lack of seafaring skills that make them want to stay within sight of land?

    * Is it lack of resources i.e. diesel, that keeps them sitting around Suva bashing a civilian every now and again?

    In 3 years, the criminal keane and his bum lickers have turned the Fijian navy into a laughing stock; only a few working boats, no seafaring skills BUT yet we have more scrambled eggs than able seamen.

    Taking over the government ships is just a simplistic way of giving keane more ships to run down and, in time, put out of commission.
