Not divulging of salaries within NCBB.

Mataca’s acquiesce with Bainimarama to not publicly divulge salaries within the $2.4m NCBB budget on the pretext of the their concern of the media’s priorities reveals just how far he has spiritually transgressed during this turmoil.

Bainimarama after his coup justified it on the basis of good governance, anti- corruption, transparency, accountability, etc.

Ironically Mataca in 1987 had maintained the high moral road, when the majority of the Methodist Church leadership and other Denominations transgressed by supporting the coup, but he remained steadfast on principles of rule of law.

However, this time around, the new leadership within the Methodist Church rejects the coup, but Mataca has transgressed and become a loyal apologist.

This latest revelation is unbecoming of a Prince within the Catholic Church, but it goes to show despite how lofty one maybe perceived, spiritually speaking, it doesn’t take too much to fall flat on your face.

Lucifer the Bible says was the most beloved of angles, closest to God and continually in his presence, yet even he strayed.

Difference between Mataca and Lucifer is that he can still repent and change his ways, whereas Lucifer has been eternally condemned, but if he fails to do so, he will end up the same.

    That is why the Methodist Church supported the 1987 coup.

    The EVIL HERETICAL CATHOLIC CHURCH IS ANTI-FIJIAN:

    That is why the Cathoholic Church supported the 2006 coup and is currently supporting the IG (Indian/Interim Government).

    Cathoholicism

    Do you have to be stupid to become a Catholic, or does being a Catholic make you stupid (and poor)?

    The dramatic differences between Catholic and Protestant nations in test scores, and thus IQ’s (AND most significantly, incomes) should make anyone, including Catholics, wonder about the root cause. With Portugal, Italy, Spain, and Mexico being the most notable Catholic countries and having the world’s lowest test scores and incomes, and with Finland, Netherlands, Belgium, and Switzerland being the most notable Protestant countries and having the world’s highest test scores and incomes, consistently, in every test ever conducted, the question is valid and crucial and IMPORTANT.

    SO, what possible factors might be responsible for such a VAST difference between Catholics and Protestants in their well being, confidence, intelligence, self-reliance, initiative, work ethic, morals, religious beliefs, independence, creativity, research and development, racial ethics, and of course ultimately INCOMES AND SAVINGS? Why do Catholic Tijuana and Protestant San Diego, situated almost on top of each other, look like opposite ends of the universe? Why are most Catholics too dumb to even recognize the serious shortcomings of a “religion” which CREATES poverty out of thin air, openly practices cannibalism, and HATES the Word of God?

    Tui, spot on mate!! They’re a contradicting bunch (the IG & NCBBF team), so much for their catch phrases, ‘transparency & accountability’.

    @taukei

    If you profess yourself to be a Christian then I feel you have contradicted your beliefs & principles of being a Christian. After all, aren’t we told in the good book (The Bible) that we are to love our enemies as we love ourselves??

    Maybe if you had read about Mataca’s choice of joining the NCBBF team, you would understand that he accepted the president’s invitation solely on a personal level and not as the head of the Catholic Church….but then again he has tarnished the church’s reputation.

    War is a sad necessity in this cracked world.

    Wars are always unfortunate but it would be more unfortunate for the unjust to triumph over the just.

    We humans continue to want peace and dream of peace, hoping against hope that the prophecy of Isaiah will finally come true (Isaiah 2: 2-5).

    Isaiah’s prediction of the future is indeed encouraging but the cry of Joel seems to be a better description of our present situation:

    “Declare this among the nations:proclaim a war,rouse the warriors to arms! Let all the soldiers report and march! Beat your plowshares into swords,and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak man say, “I am a warrior!” —- Joel 4: 9-10

    Or do you just only live in the past with your head so far up where the sun don’t shine.

    Fighting and bickering amongst us will get us nowhere. Lets not fall for the divide and rule. As a Methodist I know Catholics who are all out for God and have nothing but respect for them. We may be peeved with the way some of them like Mataca carry on just like we will be peeved with the way even some of our own church/family/work place etc. carry on. But lets be specific and not generalise. Me yaco ga vei koya. We may not agree with some of their doctrines but we do agree on some of the most basic things. Lets focus on those.
    Jesus in His high priestly prayed “That they all may be one as thou Father art in me and I in thee that they also may be one in us that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.”

    Fiji – World Bank economic update

    Since the takeover of Fiji’s Parliament in December 2006, the Interim Government led by the military commander has continued to face international sanctions by some donors. These include the suspension of parts of the aid program and immigration restrictions. Restoration of bilateral relations with key external partners remains largely dependent on the Interim Government’s demonstrating a commitment to return Fiji to democracy. National elections are expected in the first quarter of 2009.

    Fiji’s real GDP contracted by an estimated 4 percent in 2007, largely reflecting the effect of recent political events on the tourism and construction sectors. Tourism earnings fell by an estimated 20 percent while construction activity declined by one‐third in the first 9 months of the year. Sugar production declined by 23 percent due to unfavorable weather conditions and supply chain inefficiencies. Copra production declined by 9 percent. Garment export earnings have remained subdued since the expiry of the US preferential agreement in 2005.

    The trade balance showed some improvements in 2007. Export earnings rose slightly (led by mineral water, fish, and timber), while imports dampened, reflecting tightened credit conditions (following the imposition of credit ceilings on commercial banks). The trade and current account deficits remain large at approximately 27 percent and 16 percent of GDP, respectively. Despite the current account deficit, the balance of payments recorded a small surplus largely attributable to foreign direct investment. With the import cutback driven by investment goods, investment declined from 19 percent of GDP in 2006 to approximately 15 percent in 2007. Domestic demand weakened in 2007, as indicated by slower domestic credit growth (from an average of 28 percent in 2006 to 6 percent in September 2007), sluggish employment conditions, fall in remittance receipts, and declined imports of consumption goods.

    On a positive note, gross foreign reserves stabilized in 2007 to reach US$618 million as of December. Excluding foreign assets of non‐bank financial institutions, gross reserves were estimated at US$510 million at end‐2007 (sufficient to cover approximately 3 months of imports).

    The budget was in near balance in 2007 through a substantial reduction in capital expenditure and a cut in civil service wages. The 2008 budget targets a fiscal deficit of 2 percent of GDP, focusing on consolidating Fiji’s fiscal position and reducing public debt from 50 percent to 45 percent of GDP over the next 3 years.

    Inflation for 2007 was estimated at 4 percent, reflecting increases in excise duties and higher food prices following supply shocks (flood‐ and cyclone‐related losses). However, it jumped to 7.4 percent at end‐January 2008 as higher global oil prices affected domestic transport and electricity costs, and higher international wheat prices and cyclone‐led disruptions in local supply increased food prices. The inflation rate projected for end‐2008 has been revised upwards to 5 percent.

    A modest recovery of approximately 2 percent real GDP growth is forecast for 2008 linked to expected growth in tourism. However, economic recovery remains vulnerable to political instability, natural disasters (cyclones, floods), high global oil prices, and uncertain relations with key development partners. Reforms in macroeconomic policy, public sector management, land, and the sugar sector are much needed but difficult to implement under present circumstances.

    Mataca not only has bad eye but also a bad conscience. Why hide the salaries of these ncbbf staffs. Isn’t it our money being used to pay these buggers so surely we should have the right to know where and how it is being used. Its not bad eye’s or the pig’s money. Even the pig is living off our money as well and need to know how much he grates off the peoples money.

    Well, well, we now have the other gender championing the ig in the form of the witch from the north and marble eye a witch from somewhere I dont know. Both these hags are calling for people to support the ig. Bloody old useless suckers. Go suck the pig.

    John Samy take a bow. You have just joined the ranks of Dr Shyster
    and Jo Nawalowalo as a contender for the Clown of the Year
    award.

    You claim “Ratu Joni’s applauding the principles of the Charter is a
    positive comment in regards to what the NCBBF and TASS want to achieve through this process of the formulation of a People’s Charter for Change. Peace and Progress.”

    This is quite a spin to put on the comment that it is “impossible for a
    government that derived its power from the barrel of a gun to enforce
    cordial community relations.”

    Or “Further there is little credibility when the army commander says the charter will put an end to racial discrimination when his own record of leadership of the military shows very little to support such assertions in terms of membership of the military.”

    Good intentions are not enough but your latest effort suggests that your intentions are no better than the gang of thieves whose ranks you have joined. Trying to twist Ratu Joni’s words is dishonesty which everyone can see through. Quit before your credibility is gone altogether and you finishing up as a complete clown like Shyster or Nawalowalo.

    people who accept anything from this illegal administration – whether to support its own initiative locally ro otherwise is simply benefitting from a criminal exercise. It is when peole like Mataca and others do, the illegal junta belwieve they are doing the right thing. So for any right thinking people – stay away from them as afr as you can – and it is interesting how the situation in Fiji will unfold. As LQ had said in early 2007 – sa qai matata tikoga mai na mata ni meke qo.

    Dr Phil says , you can’t fix what you don’t acknowledge !
    You can keep taking the high moral ground and blaming one another , but unless each person is prepared to take ownership for their individual actions regarding this and previous coups , Fiji will continue to go down the same road . Just sometimes , we have to take a step backwards , look hard and deep within ourselves and ask , did and do my views affect what has happened since 1987 ?
    My guess is , everyone in Fiji has been influenced by the various arguments put forward , to some extent . Now is the time for true leadership . I hope Fiji can sort out it’s mess before the economy suffers too much more . Or else there will be intrenched poverty in Fiji , perhaps forever more !

  19. Bebe ni bogi Says:

    Tui I agree
    From Wikipedia

    Mataca said he did not support the concept of amnesty for persons convicted of political crimes. The overthrow of a democratically elected government a serious crime, he said, and “the coup cycle” would continue unless those involved faced the consequences of their crimes. “I publicly appeal to our President, our Prime Minister and the members of our Government to withdraw the Bill until such time as proper consultations can be held and appropriate amendments made,” Mataca said. Reconciliation and unity could not come from a politically motivated bill, he warned. On the contrary, he saw reconciliation as a healing process that must start with truth telling, confession of wrongdoing, genuine request for forgiveness and willingness to accept the consequences of one’s actions. “It seems … that the Bill has been hastily put together for political purposes – especially in view of the elections next year,” Mataca said. “This is not in the interests of the country and any stubborn effort by the Government to push through this Bill will be counter productive and will threaten Fiji’s future stability.”

    I’m baffled – a 360 degree turn – by the religious leader – what’s the difference ? Is this an admission of guilt. Nasi Lomani – I’m also confused with the contradictions.

    My fellow bloggers. I write to you with a heavy heart. For I see that the road will be long and treacherous. I have seen the cries and the suffering our people are going through. I have seen and witnessed our Fijian brothers and sisters dying from curable diseases and lack of food. I have seen and witnessed the sudden rise of poverty and crimes amongst our people.
    I now question Rabuka, if this is what he wanted for the Fijian people? I question Speight and co. who did you carry out out the coup for?
    I question Voreqe, who are you fighting for?
    For I have just found out that the IG will not fund the work carried out by the new task force headed by Kurusiga and Batibasaa. Instead funds will only be directed to the charter. So I ask you Fijians supporting this illegal IG, who are you fighting for? Whose personal agenda are you sacrificing the lives of the Fijian people for?
    Fellow bloggers, I have been a following the blogs of RFC, WFC, HnC, Hearts and Minds and now SV. In the hope that we take this to another level, I will be writing to the 3 dailies in Fiji. I will ask the same questions I’m asking now, and I will come out in the open.
    We have to push on with our cause, and we have to consider making some personal sacrifices.
    May God be with us in this long journey to freedom and justice for all.
    Bless.

    False claim

    A REPORT issued this week by the Fiji Human Rights Commission’s Shaista Shameem repeats a false allegation that three diplomats, including myself, attempted to incite a mutiny by senior RFMF leadership against Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama in the days just prior to the December 2006 coup.

    The media have picked up on that accusation.

    As my diplomatic colleagues and I made clear when the initial “mutiny incitement” allegation arose, the actual facts are that the three diplomats had been instructed by their governments to meet with the most senior RFMF leaders to ensure they were fully aware of what the negative consequences would be from a coup: Harsh sanctions on the RFMF, a tarnishing of the RFMF’s reputation and, for Fiji more broadly, immense economic, political, and cultural fall-out.

    Cmdr Bainimarama was in New Zealand at the time, so the diplomats met with then acting RFMF Commander Captain Teleni and Colonel Driti.

    My government also instructed the US ambassador to New Zealand to attempt to convey the same points to the Commodore.

    The intention was to convince the RFMF senior leadership, including the Commodore, that a coup would have very negative consequences and any such plan should be abandoned. Unfortunately, the RFMF proceeded with the coup and, as our governments predicted, the negative consequences have followed.

    If Ms Shameem felt the need to include the false “mutiny” allegation in her report, she, in fairness, should have also included the fact that the diplomats have flatly, publicly and repeatedly denied the allegation.

    So what is the real deal with this illegal ig and their illegal farter charter. They all seem to be singing from different hymn sheets. In today’s paper we have this wretched accursed viper proclaiming to Fiji that there would be no election if there is no charter. This makes the farter charter all the more sinister in its underlying objectives. I now firmly believe that the snake has ulterior motive which is self serving and destroys the Fijian race. He possesses the Mugabe syndrome which is to win the elections by any means – by hook or by crook in order to press home his evil agenda.

    This viper has to be removed from the scene or else Fiji is doomed to this wretched miserable situation we have been in the last 20 years.

    He moans about having to correct the “fundamental issues” first before elections. So what the F does he mean by that. Now he is clamoring for changes since he realizes that he will not be able to win any more elections under the present constitution which is the very same one that got him into power in 1999 but people have now rejected him as they know what he is really like. Only when the constitution does not serve him favorably he rejects it as being the cause of the nation’s problem. This however is his personal biased views which are all fabricated lies. We will never believe anything that emanates from the snakes lying filthy mouth as we can see his real evil intentions very clearly.

    Have you noticed that all the Indos are holding the top electioneering positions like the elections commissioner, boundary commissioner, minister responsible for these the arse himself and don’t be surprised the supervisor would be one as well. This is geared to procure a system which would bring about the results they so desire by concocting a system that would provide them an assured access.

    This takes me back to Bubu’s hypothesis of the boiling frog. Are we going to let this snake steal our country or should we wake up get out of the simmering water and reclaim our rightful place and get rid of this festering pest once and for all.

    This begs the question of who is the boss here. The Pig and snake alliance is pulling apart and soon it will snap. But come what may, the election has to go on and we will be there to ensure it. The snake will not have his way this time.

    By definition, a Forum is: an assembly, meeting place, television program, etc., for the discussion of questions of public interest. Media Council Forums started in 2005 and are aired on TV (not live but later in the week). They are usually open to the public. All media companies are members of the council and they all usually promote each Forum, and run stories on them.

    The bust up within FRU is keeping vore and chodo silent but happy.

    The teams crappy performance in HK seems to further bring down the people already struggling with rising food prices, continued uncertainty and political instability. Fiji’s people found no relief from a sweet sports victory that vore wished for when he farewelled the team.

    The anger at the interim government, prevented by the threat of rfmf bloodshed and brutality (as unleashed on the people after the 2000 coup), quickly transformed into destructive attacks on the FRU and its Board on talkback radio, texting and around the tanoa.

    The continued silence of the illegal govt means that there is little else to focus on but serevi, savou and the fru.

    People just want to vent their anger and the 7s is providing that opportunity. Watch out rfmf, they may get used to their freedom of expression!

    ******************************

    Fijian rugby’s biggest star has denied sabotaging the national sevens rugby team for personal gain.Waisale Serevi, considered the best sevens player in the world, has denied influencing players to perform poorly in last weekend’s Hong Kong Sevens tournament.

    The Fijians, ranked third in International Rugby Board (IRB) Sevens standings, were thrashed 34-0 by New Zealand in a semifinal in Hong Kong.Fijian coach Josateki Savou had said that with the calibre of players he had, there was no way the team should have fared so badly.The coach said he and captain Marika Vunibaka had established some key players were influenced by a former senior player not to perform at their best in the game.Savou, in Australia for today’s opening of the Adelaide sevens tournament, said he wanted the allegations fully investigated by the Fiji Rugby Union.

    Savou has refused to name the player involved but Serevi has acknowledged he is the former senior player referred to.”At no time did I ever sabotage or influence any player,” Serevi, who controversially quit as Fiji’s sevens coach last year, told the Fiji Times.”I don’t have anything against Savou, the team or players. I don’t have a bad heart.”

    There were suggestions Serevi wanted to return as sevens coach and a poor performance against New Zealand would enhance that ambition.

    Savou deflected further questioning after his side put the controversy behind it on the field today to record a 31-12 triumph against England in their opening match at the Adelaide sevens.”I think the media has been getting wrong information on what has happened,” he said.

    The controversy came after the Fijian Rugby Union on Thursday denied it held a grudge against Serevi, who quit as Fiji’s sevens coach last July over what the union described as “serious work related issues”.Serevi has denied mis-using union funds during last year’s Hong Kong sevens tournament.

    Charter teams to visit villages
    Fiji Times
    Saturday, April 05, 2008

    Update: 9.58am The National Council for Building a Better Fiji will send teams to the villages across Fiji to obtain first hand feed back about the Charter.

    This document that has already been drafted has been condemned by many quarters including Australia and New Zealand that want Fiji to return to the polls and allow an elected government to rule.

    However Fiji Labour Party leader interim Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry says there will be no election next March if there is no charter.

    Meanwhile the salaries of those involved with the Charter remains confidential to tax payers despite the fact they are funding the initiative.

    —-

    Work on the People’s Charter is now focusing more closely on each of the major issues of concern that have been raised by the people of Fiji.

    The National Council for Building a Better Fiji (NCBBF) media committee confirms that the nine working groups will meet over the next month to review 38 issues and discussion papers (IDPs).

    In a statement this afternoon, the NCBBF says these papers canvass a broad range of critical governance and economic and social issues affecting Fiji.

    According to the committee, the IDPs include possible changes to the democratic governance framework; measures needed to grow the economy; freedom of information laws; improving environmental protection; improving accountability; enhancing human rights protections; alleviating poverty; and developing a common national identity.

    “While working groups are working through these major issues, consultation teams will be visiting villages to obtain feedback from the people.

    “This consultation process is essential so that the People’s Charter, when formulated, properly reflects the people’s will,” the committee said.

    It added that it is vital that the media continue to take an interest in promoting debate on issues related to the content of the Charter.

    No charter, no election

    SERAFINA SILAITOGA
    Saturday, April 05, 2008

    ANY plan to return Fiji to democracy through a general election should only happen after the People’s Charter is formulated and finalised, said interim Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry.

    While visiting the Northern Division yesterday, Mr Chaudhry said next year’s election should come after the People’s Charter had been formulated.

    Mr Chaudhry said that Fiji had a lot of problems which needed to be resolved and rectified first before an election could take place.

    “The Charter should be put together first before the election because we need to address many problems we are facing in this nation. We have to address problems and put our fundamentals right before an election is held.”

    Mr Chaudhry said it was important to address such problems first, particularly the systems in place before going to the polls.

    He said that Pacific neighbours Australia and New Zealand needed to understand that an election was not the solution to the problems Fiji continued to face.

    He said such problems included the systems in major institutions and the civil service which needed to be improved to help bring about better productivity and performance.

    The Foreign Affairs ministers of New Zealand and Australia, Winston Peters and Stephen Smith, have continuously called for an early election.

    They have raised concerns on how the charter could delay the election next year.

    The foreign ministers also said the proposed People’s Charter could be used as a distraction.

    Meanwhile, Fiji’s interim Foreign Affairs Minister Ratu, Epeli Nailatikau, assured the Pacific Islands Forum meeting in Auckland last week the election would go ahead with or without the People’s Charter.

    Interim Prime Minister Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama said last week at the second meeting of the National Council for Building a Better Fiji at the police academy in Nasova that the Charter was a vital part of preparations for the election.

    He said his regime saw the NCBBF as a guide for the Charter to pave the way forward for Fiji

    Dr. King, Forgotten Radical

    Long before his death, white and black America began to forget the true legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

    Kai Wright | April 4, 2008 |
    America began perverting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s message in the spring of 1963. Truthfully, you could put the date just about anywhere along the earlier timeline of his brief public life, too. But I mark it at the Birmingham movement’s climax, right about when Northern whites needed a more distant, less personally threatening change-maker to juxtapose with the black rabble rousers clambering into their own backyards. That’s when Time politely dubbed him the “Negroes’ inspirational leader,” as Gene Roberts and Hank Klibanoff point out in their excellent book Race Beat.

    Up until then, King had been eyed as a hasty radical out to push Southern communities past their breaking point — which was a far more accurate understanding of the man’s mission. His “Letter from a Birmingham Jail” is in fact a blunt rejection of letting the establishment set the terms of social change. “The purpose of our direct-action program is to create a situation so crisis-packed that it will inevitably open the door to negotiation,” he wrote, later adding, “We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”

    Shame that quotation rarely makes it into the sort of King remembrances that will mark today’s 40th anniversary of his assassination. Generations after the man’s murder, our efforts to look back on his life too often say more about our own racial fantasies and avoidances than they do about his much-discussed dream. And they obscure a deeply radical worldview that remains urgently important to Americans’ lives. Today, I don’t mourn King’s death so much as I do his abandoned ideas.

    We’ve all got reason to avoid the uncomfortable truths King shoved in the nation’s face. It’s a lot easier for African Americans to pine for his leadership than it is to accept our own responsibility for creating the radicalized community he urged upon us. And it’s more comfortable for white America to reduce King’s goals to an idyllic meeting of little black boys and little white girls than it is to consider his analysis of how white supremacy keeps that from becoming reality.

    Take, for instance, his point that segregation’s purpose wasn’t just to keep blacks out in the streets but to keep poor whites from taking to them and demanding economic justice. There’s a concept that’s not likely to come up in, say, the speech John McCain was rumored to be planning for today. “The Southern aristocracy took the world and gave the poor white man Jim Crow,” King lectured from the Alabama Capitol steps, following the 1965 march on Selma. “And when his wrinkled stomach cried out for the food that his empty pockets could not provide, he ate Jim Crow, a psychological bird that told him that no matter how bad off he was, at least he was a white man, better than a black man.”

    It’s thoughts like those that made him decidedly less popular at the time of his death than today. The bloom started to wear off King’s media rose when he turned his attention to Northern racism. The central defense Southern segregationists offered when thrust on the national stage was that their Jim Crow was no more of a brute than the North’s. King agreed, and in announcing his organization’s move into Chicago, he called the North’s urban ghettos “a system of internal colonialism not unlike the exploitation of the Congo by Belgium.” And he named names, pointing to racist unions as one of a dozen institutions conspiring to strip-mine black communities. So much for “inspirational.” But then, like now, nobody wanted to hear such talk — only the black press paid any attention.

    Later, when a white mob hurled bricks and cherry bombs at marchers in Chicago, King told reporters that the scene outdid anything below the Mason-Dixon Line. “I have never in my life seen such hate,” biographer Taylor Branch quotes him as saying. “Not in Mississippi or Alabama.” Today, we hear little about the ideas that experience provoked for King: His deathbed blueprint for changing America’s caste systems included a three-pronged attack on racism, poverty, and war.

    It’s that last charge, to fight war-making, that got him in the most trouble during his time and that gets most readily ignored today. Despite grenades of criticism from his fellow civil-rights leaders, his erstwhile ally in the president, and the press, King declared he had no choice but to stand up against the Vietnam War. But what’s striking is the still red-hot relevance of his reasoning, a perspective also likely to be left out of the dreamy platitudes delivered on days like today.

    King called the armed forces a “cruel manipulation of the poor” and likened war funding to “some demonic destructive suction tube,” siphoning off resources needed to deal with pressing domestic issues. And he warned that our zeal for the fight reflected “a far deeper malady in the American spirit,” one which drives us to consider the protection of our “overseas investments” to be a greater imperative than the preservation of life. The 1967 speech bears quoting at length:

    I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a thing-oriented society to a person-oriented society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.

    It’s to our detriment that we whitewash all of these valuable ideas from our national memory of King. But the greatest tragedy may be that African Americans have morphed his belief in the power of community into a follow-the-leader obsession. Each King holiday and memorial spawns another round of “Where’s Waldo?” pondering over who our new leader is, or should be, or if one exists at all.

    I suspect King’s answer would be who cares? Indeed, while the rest of the civil-rights establishment cringed when black college students launched their own, amorphous movement of sit-ins, King applauded it. He called the student movement “a revolt against Negroes in the middle class who have indulged themselves in big cars and ranch-style homes rather than joining a movement for freedom,” according to Branch. Today’s preoccupation with naming King’s successors seems similarly trivial.

    Black America first anointed King its savior after he stormed onto the national scene in Montgomery, holding together the prolonged 1954 bus boycott with nightly speeches in which he exhorted everyone to stay the course. Jet magazine called him “Alabama’s Modern Moses.” WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR ANOTHER PROPHET SINCE HE WAS GUNNED DOWN ON APRIL 4, 1968. I JUST WISH OUR LAST ONE WOULD COME BACK AND REMIND US THAT OUR POWER LIES NOT IN LEADERSHIP BUT IN A COLLECTIVE REFUSAL TO BE OPPRESSED.

    Loss of $350m EU AID because of coup

    Sunday, April 06, 2008

    Update: 11.56am The military government has taken a series of consequential actions which has affected the sugar industry.

    Fiji Cane Growers Association national president Attar Singh said the coup allowed Fiji to lose out on the European Union aid of $350m.

    “That money is much needed to salvage the ailing sugar industry and deteriorating infrastructures around the country,” he said.

    Mr Singh added the regime had taken away a democratically elected government but the farmers should not allow it to remove their rights too.

    He said the interim government was doing nothing to cushion the global prices of items for the people of Fiji especially the interim Finance Minister Mahendra Chaudhry who claimed to champion the plight of the poor yet did nothing to help during these hard times.

    aaah, the illegal rfmf government’s loyal ally continues its good work in its province tibet

    “The use of live rounds was a last resort, the Xinhua news agency said, without specifying how the Tibetan demonstrators had injured the official. It said: “Police were forced to fire warning shots and put down the violence, since local officials and people were in great danger.”

    China said yesterday it had restored order to the heavily Tibetan areas of Western China. Now, it turns out, that claim may have been a bit of an exaggeration. London’s Times is reporting from Sichuan that as many as 1,000 paramilitary police opened fire late last night on a group of several hundred monks and other protesters, killing eight and wounding dozens:
    Chinese paramilitary police have killed eight people after opening fire on several hundred Tibetan monks and villagers in bloody violence…. Witnesses said the clash – in which dozens were wounded – erupted late last night after a government inspection team entered a monastery in the Chinese province of Sichuan trying to confiscate pictures of the Dalai Lama.

    Here’s the background:
    Officials searched the room of every monk in the Donggu monastery, a sprawling 15th century edifice in Ganzi, southwestern Sichuan, confiscating all mobile phones as well as the pictures. When the inspectors tore up the photographs and threw them on the floor, a 74-year-old monk, identified as Cicheng Danzeng, tried to stop an act seen as a desecration by Tibetans who revere the Dalai Lama as their god king. A young man working in the monastery, identified as Cicheng Pingcuo, 25, also made a stand and both were arrested. The team then demanded that all the monks denounce the Dalai Lama… At about 6.30 p.m., the entire monastic body marched down to a nearby river where paramilitary police were encamped and demanded the release of the two men. They were joined by several hundred local villagers, many of them enraged at the detention of the 74-year-old monk Cicheng Danzeng, who locals say is well respected in the area for his learning and piety. Shouting ‘Long Live the Dalai Lama,’ ‘Let the Dalai Lama come back’ and ‘We want freedom,’ the crowd demonstrated until about nine in the evening. Witnesses said that at around that time, as many as 1,000 paramilitary police used force to try to end the protest and opened fire on the crowd.

    Chinese paramilitary police killed eight people and wounded dozens more when they fired on a protest by several hundred Tibetan monks and villagers, The Times has been told.

    The protesters were enraged by a government inspection team trying to confiscate pictures of the Dalai Lama.

    The clash, one of the bloodiest since Tibetan protests against China erupted last month, occurred in the village of Donggu, high in the mountains of Sichuan province near the border with Tibet, after government officials entered the sprawling ancient hillside monastery of Tongkor.

    They searched the room of every monk, confiscating all mobile phones as well as the pictures. The monastery’s website (www.donggusi.com) says that it is home to 350 monks. A contact telephone for the monastery was not operational yesterday.

    When the officials had removed the photographs, a 74-year-old monk, identified as Cicheng Danzeng, tried to stop police from throwing the images on the ground — an act seen as a desecration by Tibetans, who revere the Dalai Lama as their god king. A young man working in the monastery, Cicheng Pingcuo, 25, also made a stand and both were arrested.

    The team of officials then demanded that all the monks denounce the Dalai Lama, who fled China after a failed uprising in 1959. One monk, Yixi Lima, stood up and voiced his opposition, prompting the other monks to add their voices.

    About 6.30pm, the entire monastic body marched down to a nearby river, where paramilitary police were encamped and demanded the release of the two men. They were joined by several hundred local villagers, many of them enraged at the detention of the elderly monk, who locals say is well respected in the area for his learning and piety.

    Shouting “Long Live the Dalai Lama”, “Let the Dalai Lama come back” and “We want freedom”, the crowd demonstrated until about 9pm.
    Witnesses said that up to 1,000 paramilitary police used force to try to end the protest and opened fire on the crowd. In the gunfire, eight people died, according to a local resident in direct contact with the monastery. These included a 27-year-old monk identified as Cangdan and two women named as Zhulongcuo and Danluo.

    Witnesses said that a 30-year-old villager, Pupu Deley, was killed, with the son of a villager named Cangdan, and the daughter of a villager called Cuogu. Two other people, whose identities were not available, were also killed, the witnesses said. Among those wounded was one person with a bullet through the ear and another shot in the shoulder. About 10 people were still missing yesterday, including another monk, Ciwang Renzhen.

    One witness, who declined to be identified, said: “People were very angry after the old lama was detained. He is very much loved and so many ordinary people were very excited.”

    State-run Chinese media confirmed that the police resorted to force but insisted that it was only after a government official was attacked and seriously wounded by protesters. “Local officials exercised restraint during the riot and repeatedly told the rioters to abide by the law,” they reported.

    The use of live rounds was a last resort, the Xinhua news agency said, without specifying how the Tibetan demonstrators had injured the official. It said: “Police were forced to fire warning shots and put down the violence, since local officials and people were in great danger.”

    Pro-Tibet activists said the incident erupted after the chief monk turned away the officials on Wednesday, and they returned the following day backed by a squad of paramilitary police. They said the police had opened fire when demonstrators, expecting the two detainees to be freed by 8pm, confronted the security at a roadblock outside the temple.

    Yesterday armed paramilitary police patrolled the streets of the village and surrounded the monastery. All communications had been cut.
    Pictures of the Dalai Lama have been banned in China since the mid-1990s when the exiled monk enraged Beijing by announcing that, working with an abbot of a major monastery in Tibet, he had identified the reincarnation of the Panchen Lama — Tibet’s spiritual leader — who died in 1989. That boy disappeared and the Communist Party oversaw a new search in which another child was installed as the reincarnation.

    The new search appears to be part of a policy by the Government to try to suppress the anti-Chinese unrest. On Thursday paramilitary police entered the Drangko monastery in Sichuan — where a policeman and two Tibetans died in clashes on March 24 — in a hunt for banned photographs. Witnesses said that the police threw the pictures on the ground and stamped on them.

    The latest upsurge of violence highlights the difficulties the Chinese authorities are facing in trying to end almost a month of protests across the Tibetan region and the depth of anti-Chinese sentiment among a deeply Buddhist minority loyal to the exiled Dalai Lama. It comes just as the issue of unrest has become a focus for activists around the world who are criticising China’s human rights record as it prepares to host the Olympic Games in Beijing in August.

    The latest violence must also cast a shadow over Beijing’s plans to reopen the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, to tourists by May 1.

    Before Thursday’s violence, the security forces appeared to have regained control of the vast areas of the country. In Lhasa, police issued their Number 13 most wanted list, bringing to 79 the number of people still sought for their roles in a riot on March 14 when Tibetans rampaged through the streets of the Tibetan capital, stabbing and stoning ethnic Han Chinese and setting fire to hundreds of shops and offices. At least 18 people died.

    Lhasa authorities sent out a text message to the mobile phones of all residents yesterday, offering a reward of 20,000 yuan (£1,300) to anyone giving information leading to the arrest of those wanted for the violence.
    The unrest has spilled quickly since monks from a monastery on the edge of Lhasa first tried to stage a peaceful demonstration on March 10 to mark the anniversary of the Dalai Lama’s flight into exile in 1959. Since then, violence has been reported in several provinces with large Tibetan populations.

    Two monks in Sichuan province have committed suicide, according to Tibetan sources. One aged 32 hanged himself in his room at Geerten monastery on March 27, leaving a signed suicide note. Another, aged 72, from Guomang temple, was apparently upset after being detained while en route to a religious ceremony with his disciples. He returned to his monastery and killed himself.

    I see that Tui Savu has now got the “solicitor” after his name. Does that mean that this somehow makes him more credible.

    Tui argues that even though the Methodist Church supported the previous coup – “However, this time around, the new leadership within the Methodist Church rejects the coup, but Mataca has transgressed and become a loyal apologist.
    Hey Tui, this ain’t about the new leadership or a change of heart of the Methodist leaders – it just happens that this coup was pulled by people on the other side – What if Chaudary had won the last election, and there was coup for the “indigenous cause” – I bet this same Methodist Church would be right there supporting another coup – just as they did the last coup.
    I agree with Tui on his comment “spiritually speaking, it doesn’t take too much to fall flat on your face.” – the Methodist church has been doing that for some time – you trying to make this one into some sort of a moral high road being taken by the Methodist is funny.

    You see Tui – It was OK for the other side to use the Methodist Church – this time around the military and the FLP seem to have the Catholics on their side – what goes around come around

    aubatinuku – all land is stolen – doesn’t matter what country you look at.

    IslandBoy – that “preduced” – so you read my stuff also – so you go for typos – good for you – you will find a lot in my post – or do you think I should bother with spell check before I post – that tells a lot about you IB.

    As for Prejudice – its the Indians, Muslims, Ahmadiaya, Kai Tongas, Lebanses, and the list goes on. So you want to comment on how someone spell prejudice.

    Whatshisface is at it again – always trying to have the last word.

    Well again may I reiterate that the topic is about the lack of transparency in regards to taxpayers money – the issue is the hypocrisy of the wannabe powers that wannabe lying and hiding the truth from us the people.

    So no matter the spin on anything, the issue remains – these people would rather put this stupid charter as a priority bankrupting the nation and making us poorer for the sake of an insane and asinine doctrine.

    Vinaka Soli for highlighting this issue.

  74. aubatinuku-N Says:

    Budhau is baseless and spineless!
    Tough I say! REAL TOUGH TITTIES!!
    HaH!!
    Man aren’t you just pathetic!

  75. John Veikoso Says:

    Aubatilutu oops nuku, brother naita you must have been born on a leap year??? you are so aggresive, should play rugby, could have used you against the AB’s last week but then you’re one of those spineless, faceless wannabe detractors who do nothing but wine like a pig all day long like FB says till the cows come home..

  76. aubatinuku-N Says:

    You seem to know quite a bit about being spineless, faceless and the word is whining not “wine”.

    Not born on a leap year nite, born leader at your service 😉

    Nite, au kanaka ga ni o ni cata na rakavi?
    Kua mada na butubuturua tiko naita! Kemuni saka na turaga dredre!

    So you have a piggery too??
    Hmmmm!!

  77. Budhau Says:

    Woilei – on “lack of transparency”
    Listen, you idiot, the military’s excuse for the coup was lack of transparency, corruption, yada, yada, yada – it was just that and EXCUSE.

    Who said anything about this military regime would be transparent?

    Remember the past coups – their excuse was “indigenous rights” – does anyone believe that the last coups were about indigenous rights.

    Of course all the coups were just about power grab. So don’t be naive about what this coup is about – it ain’t about clean-up and corruption, it ain’t about transparency, it ain’t about racial equality.

    It is about one group of Fijians who went for the power grab. In the beginning they did not know what to expect from the local crowd so they gave this line about clean-up and anti corruption – and that line went out the window the moment the IG realized that the local crowd can do doo-doo about what had happened.
    Then they turned to the foreign audience – remember the UN speech – that is when they came up with the racial equality crap.

    Aubatinuku – them tight titties – you seem to be real fascinated with certain parts of the human anatomy – so what an I supposed to say – that you are tight or loose down there – or should I refer to the size – you idiot.

    BTW Tui Savu’s line “However, this time around, the new leadership within the Methodist Church rejects the coup, but Mataca has transgressed and become a loyal apologist.”

    I thought that was really funny – the Methodist Church has seen the light and now reject the coup – yeah right, they reject the coup only until the next time their guy loses the election.

  78. aubatinuku-N Says:

    Budhau.

    You crack me up man! Bhahahah!

    “tight titties” you say??? What the heck!! WOW!!
    I said “tough titties” as in “REAL TOUGH” as in ” TOUGH LUCK”, it’s all figuratively speaking bro!
    It was a figure of speech and not an invitation to talk about tits yo kaisi bokola o tamamu!!

    Hah!! Whos the idiot now? AYE??
    You Budhau have a sick mind to go with your sick mouth.
    You and your connotations!
    You brilliant FOOL and a half!!

    Don’t tell me you at the pub again!!! heheheh!
    But then again with you we never can tell!

    Cool it aubatinuku,save it for the IG. They are the problems.

  81. Tui Says:

    @aubatinuku, gang, what JV is saying is that she is a “big prick” because she has the guns. That makes her tough and strong. Take away the guns? Go figure budha and JV!
    Savu has “Solicitor” under his name because he is one! By the way he did go to school and earned the title! He did not shortcut his ways with guns.
    Vacava that!

  83. Budhau Says:

    Take away the guns – come one guys, who said any thing about taking away the guns. What we need is bigger guns on our side.

    Tui – so this “solicitor” dude went to school – says who? BTW – there are other ways of short cutting you way to a better job and title in Fiji – not only with this IG – it was always like this.

    Maybe you not getting enough and are now stealing other peoples private movies. If these guys want to film themselves while having sex, what is it to you? Only perverts like you would raid a house, steal their computer and perv on their private movies. This is how sick you morons at QEB are! Can’t find evidence of an assassination plot, steal the man’s PC, car, hose-pipe, dog, cat, rake and garden tools! What idiots! And you call yourself a soldier!!? Bleary wankers is all you are.
