Thought for the day

For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people. - John F. Kennedy

Sean Dorney interview re intimidation in Fiji

Anonymous said...

Read what the respected Professor Brij Lal had to say about this issue here - http://www.rnzi.com/pages/news.php?op=read&id=59111

"Australian National University Professor Brij Lal says the Fiji authorities are concerned about a proposed demonstration in Suva tomorrow.

But he says the crackdown has also been prompted by the unrest in the Middle East

“Where simple human spirit, when will power was able to triumph over all the tanks and the guns and people of Fiji do watch these programmes and are in communication with their friends outside. So there is this fear that something untoward as far as the military is concerned might happen and they’re taking preemptive action to come down on critics.”

Brij Lal says detentions and abuses have been going on for a while but people are too afraid to report them.'
