Our current employment scenario is looking more each day like a game of "cat and mouse."
While the glorified keepers of PEACE (the UN), but in actuality a killer of "unsexy PEACEFUL" countries, is giving employment to our security forces to go and KEEP THE PEACE in countries where death rages like there's no tomorrow, the current military regime, that is killing the PEACE in our country is thinking of laying- off civil servants who also have families to look after at home.
I borrowed the term "unsexy", from Lydia Alpizar (Association for Women's Rights in Development-AWID) to depict the fact that maybe the reason the UN is NOT SEEING or choosing NOT TO SEE our plight and fight for PEACE is because Fijians are not dying en masse in our beloved country, like they're in Sudan or somewhere else like that.
However, what the UN fails to see is the subtle ways this regime is going about their so-called clean-up mission and robbing of our democratic rights. This includes, but not limited to:
* Their psychological war to try and blame citizens for any bloodshed that may occur. Thus, the reluctance of citizens to take to the streets in protest because as a small population and the already struggle to survive, we don't want to lose lives unnecessarily to pay for a crime that Voreqe, Rt. Iloilo and their supporters have committed.
* Their bullying tactics in TELLING people to accept their power base because at the end of the day they have the guns to turn on the citizens, if push comes to shove and they need to save their bee-hinds.
* Their unrealistic mission based on some dogmatic vision Voreqe or one of his cronies developed maybe in one of their manic depressive episodes prior to Dec. 5, 2006.
So, as the UN officials wrap up their hobnobbing with world leaders at the 64th GA, I wonder what impact the minnow Voreqe has made on that world stage that will positively affect the people of Fiji, and our strive to regain our PEACE, FREEDOM AND PROSPERITY.
Mr. Ban Ki Moon on his Sept. 18th Peace celebrations speech talked about how weapons have caused ordinary citizens to not experience peace and prosperity.
Well, guess what Mr. Moon, that same peace you're talking about is not being experienced in Fiji. So, before you start providing employment for Fiji's security forces who are part of the group that have and are robbing us of our peace, think of the consequences of YOUR DECISIONS on ordinary peoples of Fiji.
Redundancies have happened with this regime and there's more to come. While the robbers of our peace enjoy the trappings of their stolen power base, supported by organisations like the UN, the ordinary people whom they swore to look after and protect from bullies who use weapons, continue to suffer.
And if push comes to shove, their blood if it has to be split one day, will be on your hands. Because your irresponsible decisions to keep employing Fiji's security forces for peacekeeping missions overseas, continue to make the regime flex their muscles and prolong their stay in power.
So, our humble plea to the UN is - STOP SUPPORTING ROBBERS OF FIJI'S PEACE - THAT IS THE FIJI MILITARY/SECURITY FORCES AND ITS LEADERS! YOUR ORGANISATION IS PARTAKING IN THE ROBBING OF THE VERY PEACE YOU PURPORT TO EMBODY AND PROMOTE. THAT IS NOT GOOD FOR OUR CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS AND FUTURE GENERATION.
