The sound of this article sounds like one of those slogans from Mao's little Red book ("all for the good of the people" and " revolutionize the social economy of the people"')
I think the Fijian regime has been reading too many Chinese revolutionary books lately ! Dum Gai's - why Yu Bin Fling Ing Dung?!
If I read this right this scary article means Epeli will be TAKING - yes TAKING - the land from us and then "re-selling" the land back to us after the project is proven profitable ...... if it ever gets there - but its that process of even getting there that is eight-tenths (what do they say about possession ?) of the problem ! Woilei !
This opens up a tamani (huge) big bucket of baca ni qele (worms) !
What does it take for these idiots to realise that there is no such thing a s a free lunch with the Chinese. The first thing China will do which will be part of the "conditions" of the loan, will be to import thousands of Chinese to work the land - the second colonial wave in Fiji's history - the money derived from this work will all back to China to pay of the "Chinese grant" - which is really a money-shark loan. This is like giving you one chopstick to eat with ! As the old Chinese saying goes "Man with one chopstick go hungry." Only one place to put it eh !
Not to mention the introduction of a new wave of "colonizers" if I can call them that.
Before we know it our national resources will be taken from us - forestry and fishes and minerals - as China needs to find resources to feed their millions - and this idiotic band of illegals are falling right into this trap. All the Chinese have to do is find a desperate country and pounce !
If the illegal's decide to have a competition for a new flag, here's what it might look like.
Look, they don't even have to advertise so they could save themselves money and just accept my rendition.
Here is an interesting article for digestion :
And where do we end up ?
No where - and alienated from our own land ! Victims of someone's absolute stupidity, jealousy, hate and ignoramus. Read more about this issue at fellow bloggers Hearts and Minds Blog.
China, is willing to support Fiji without any strings attached, a recently completed Lowy Institute report on China's estimated aid program in the Pacific, revealed an increase in aid, from US$25 million in 2006 to a staggering $160 million in 2007. Australia only provided A$26.9 million.Toso mai na people's revolution !
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the Fiji Electriciy Authority and the Chinese Development Bank signed a US$70 million loan agreement to commence construction of the Nadarivatu Hydropower project.
Chinese loans are also helping to fund other infrastructure projects in Fiji. This is worrying Australia. The possibility of Fiji turning to China could undermine Australia's competing influence in the region.
