If the Fijilive report on September 12, 2009, where Sir Reeves is meant to say that his talks with Voreqe has established a relationship for future discussions is correct, it is hard to swallow. I mean, how can ANOTHER RELATIONSHIP BE ESTABLISHED FOR FUTURE DISCUSSIONS when other previous relationships and dialogues have faltered flat on our faces.
Because of one thing alone – VOREQE’S GREED!
Voreqe and his selfish, greedy self is the reason of our country’s demise. Now that they have abrogated the Constitution after their actions were declared ILLEGAL by a court of law, and then put in decrees to have the “new image” they now call their government, they believe it is ok to carry on like so.
Well Sir Reeves may have been fooled by all the façade but not for us whose rights, lives and livelihoods have been trampled upon, squashed and tossed aside like it is nothing.
Illegal Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum’s plan for the next three years’ economic recovery is laughable. So now he is admitting that since 5 December 2006, the demise of our economy is THEIR FAULT. So their lame efforts is now to have another three year plan to revive the economy, which have taken them the last three years to TRASH! And while they are trying to do that, the people of Fiji and especially the children have to suffer in SILENCE! What a dictatorship! And the Commonwealth is good with that????? Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. I would say that Voreqe’s military regime is just trying to put words into Sir Reeves’ mouth.
Like this report on him saying “he received a friendly welcome from Fiji government and her people." This was supposed to read - … from Voreqe’s military regime and his cronies. Because really that is what the Commonwealth spokesperson was seen on BBC as quoting after the Commonwealth suspended Fiji. She referred to them as a military regime. Nothing legal such as a government mentioned there.
And the ONLY role the Commonwealth still has to play in bringing democracy to the country is to make sure that EVERY CITIZEN in Fiji has the right to stand for elections in 2014. We will patiently wait but when the time is here, Mere, Litia, Chaudhry, Qarase, Peni, Vamarasi, Pushpa, MYSELF and even Voreqe can stand for elections on platforms we believe in. Then we will let the people decide. Voreqe should never be allowed to use his guns to intimidate, threaten, cajole or boss anyone around anymore. He can stand for elections and let his REAL ACTIONS AND WORDS do the showing off on equal footing like the rest of us. Not his guns. Because right now, he has the upper hand with his guns, and that we, the peoples of Fiji will NEVER FORGET!
HOPE WE HAVE IN ABUNDANCE BUT NOT WHERE GUNS RULE! Our hope is based on our FREEDOM TO EXERCISE OUR RIGHTS AND TO PROSPER ON OUR OWN ACCORD AND STRUGGLES IN GOOD TIME.
GOD BLESS OUR Fiji!
