Bloggers, is this the start of peaceful protests and civil disobedience in Fiji? This time the Methodist Church is protesting against the stench of the Qawa River due to the unlawful dumping by the FSC and Vatura Sawmill. How about protest marches regarding the stench of illegality, brutality, corruption, nepotism, murders of the illegal junta! Se vacava ragone? SV encourages the Methodist Church and all other God fearing Churches to stand united against this illegal murderous junta!

Rev Vuata says all they’ve been told is that the Fiji Sugar Corporation and the Vatura sawmill is dumping their waste into the river and the march is for authorities to look into the matter and stop the continuation of pollution.
He says people living alongside the river can no longer draw sustain from it because of the foul smell it holds which only happens when the sugar mill is in operation Rev. Vuata says it is only at the end of the crushing season when the river is somewhat normal.
The Methodist Church march will be accompanied by other religious bodies and villagers who live alongside the Qawa River and will start from the Nasea Methodist church to Macuata house.
A government official will await them at MacuataHouse to receive their petition.
