Although we’ve been in mourning e-v-e-r-y single day since the military junta robbed us of our elected Government on 5Dec06, we’d especially want to show our disgust this Friday, 10 October 2008, which the military junta has set aside as “Fiji Day” (a public holiday for all except for the poor civil servants), to celebrate Fiji’s INDEPENDENCE.
The irony of it all, aye!
Well, we thought we’ll start with these helpful suggestions by ExFT and Billy on how to best spend this depressing Friday. Blog in yr ideas and God help us all.
ex Fiji Tourist Says:
For all the Fijians who are feeling powerless under the repression of the jaundice junta, Fiji Day is your chance to make a statement,
1. Keep your kids home from school.
2. If you have to send them because you work, send them n black.
3. Do NOT go anywhere near their ‘celebrations’. Imagine the TV pictures of bananas surrounded by a sea of ;’ bodyguards’.
4. Wear black clothes to symbolize mourning for democracy.
5. Stay home from work; after all you are suffering from bananasigities.
6. Do not in any way allow you or your family to join in this day of mourning.
7. Write letters to the dailies to protest the waste of expenditure by the jaundiced junta.
NOW, if the stupid bananas gets rid of the constitution, take to the streets and protest, protest, protest.
The international press will be taking an interest in Fiji on this day.
It is up to you to get your opposition through to all.
And fellow blogger, Billy says –
To all civil servants, Friday’s celebration (D-Day) is the best time to show your protest against what is happening, it is your public holiday, Stay home, no one should have their pay cut just cause they dont turn up to Albert Park. Don’t be like sheep being led to the slaughter. Stand up for your children! Stand up for Fiji. Show the world that we do not support what is happening. Others in private sector have stopped paying their taxes to an illegal regime, that is their silent protest.
Please everyone just pass the word around, STAY HOME!!! DON’T BE CAUGHT UP IN THIS FOOLISH LYING THIEVING CONNIVING GROUP OF ILLEGALS spinning more web of LIES on Fiji D-Day!. Our nation deserves better. Silent protest…Me i cavai! Let him force his way around, violence will never pay, and lying will catch up. Have no fear, respect only the law not illegals.
Remember the saying “First they came for the (SDL) and I did not speak out cause I was not a SDL supporter, then they came for the NGOs, and I did not speak out cause I was not an NGO, then they came for the Methodists and I did not speak out cause I was not a Methodist, then they came for the Trade Unions (FTA/FICTU/FNA) and I did not speak out cause I was a union member, then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak out for me!
This is your chance, you dont have to speak out, just stay home and silently protest. Celebrate at home with your children that you have stood up on a matter of principle!!!
