The report regarding the non-inclusion of the Fiji Times and Fiji TV in the consultations with other media organisations for the development of a Media Decree is another display of shameful and childish rhetoric by Bainimarama's military regime, and in particular the illegal minister responsible for this media decree.
Their reasons for the Fiji Times' and Fiji TV's exclusion is not something new. As this is how this military regime continues to bamboozle the very people whose power to consult, negotiate and move Fiji forward IN GOOD FAITH, was trampled upon and stolen from them at their gunpoint. This is however, another way (added to the many other ways) those who try and see the optimistic side of this regime e.g. Sir Paul, Father Barr, Akuila Yabaki, etc should clearly open their eyes to see what those of us who believe in democracy (never mind its inadequacies) already know about this regime.
They can ONLY MONOLOGUE.
They can ONLY GIVE THREATS.
They can ONLY ACT CHILDISHLY TO GET THEIR WAY.
And these are people who are trying to "LEAD" our country?
For the military regime to say that the Fiji Times and Fiji TV are not pro-Fiji is a total laugh! Those of us who don't support or even want to acknowledge all the happenings in Fiji since Dec. 5, 2006 are totally pro-Fiji. But what we're not is pro-Bainimarama and his military regime. Because Fiji as it is, is a GOOD THING. Unfortunately for Fiji, we have ego-centric, pathological liars and cowards in its midst who possess guns, who believe that with their guns they can force others to follow them blindly. Sorry Fulori! Some others are better off than you Bainimarama and your military regimers because we possess that small amount of values, integrity, moral responsibility, maturity and intelligence to know that when something is ILLEGAL WE WILL NOT SUPPORT IT, never mind the means or altruistic motivations that enabled it.
If this is one way to exclude a legible entity from consultations, imagine what the other dialogues to take Fiji back to democratic rule is going to be like. And again, this is a reminder to the people of Fiji -
WE MUST NEVER, EVER CONDONE OR ACCEPT THE MILITARY'S STANCE TO BE OUR DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENTS' SUPERVISOR IN THE FUTURE. WE, THE PEOPLE ARE VERY CAPABLE OF DOING THAT OURSELVES BECAUSE WE DON'T NEED GUNS TO KEEP OUR GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS IN LINE. IT'S INHUMANE. IT'S ANTI-HUMAN RIGHTS!!!!! IT'S ANTI-FIJIAN!!!
