This is the fourth year that the Military Regime has taken over the SDL/FLP multicabinet government and in that time, have gone against the principles of democratic society, they have misinformed the people and the world and have shown their unproffesional and uneducated methods of governance that has brought shame to patriotic Fijians who have a deep feeling for their identity and a sense of belonging.
Underlying the declining economic growth,is an array of interrelating factors. Key among them are the drop in tourist numbers and investors. When these two key economic boosters are not addresed, a vicious cycle transpires, starting with the unemployment and loss of income, closing down of establishments, poor perfomance in local businesses, crime rate escalates, over worked and under paid workers...
I can continue all the way down to poverty - and I haven't left the Western side and the hotel/resort businesses. Imagine if I was to make an assumption on the repercussions of this negative economic growth right across the board, I think that no one will be happy at the end of it.
So, I am making a proposal to all those who want Fiji to have an election this year 2010. Please put your name here, where you live, and preferably a photo of yourself. This list will be attached to a letter requesting a return to the polls for our beloved country and sent directly to Bainimarama. If you think that Fiji needs Democracy and not Dictatorship, free to excercise their constitutional rights, have better health and educational systems and STOP THAT VICIOUS CYCLE please stand up and be counted.
Show Fiji you care, show them, that the democracy we are enjoying overseas should be enjoyed by them too. Sign here and I promise you it will find its way to the PM's office. After that we will let all the International Organisations and all our international friends know that we have put it to the Illegal PM - our desire and what we deserve.

Bula vinka Fiji and those of you abroad.I have just returned from the market in Suva with 3 of my children, John, Satini and Cathy. Isa I wished I could send you some of the nama, kaikoso and dalo vavi and kai ni wai dranu. You are always in my thoughts children of Fiji.Tai Suli I thank you for putting up this blog, I only hope that more people from Fiji will respond.
It could be people are still afraid to raise their voice, but we must understand that we will never progress if we will remain quite, and let bullies take over our lives. Thank you Loru, Mere, Matia Suka, Fanny, Mafi, Jay and all of you who have given your time, resources and dedicated your lives for a truly free and democratic Fiji.
My family and I fully endorses this initiative as as we saw with the latest incident with Imrana and the tourist from America, we CANNOT, WILL NOT ALLOW BULLIES AND THUGS TO CONTINUALLY DICTATE OUR LIVES!The Nadaku family of Caubati, Suva, FIji, without reservations, are demanding that this year, this IG make a commitment to have elections in 2010. Let the world know that we who call our selves children of Fiji, want a return to Parliamentary Democracy and Government of the people, by the people,
FOR THE PEOPLE!God Bless you all and may God Bless Fiji.Keitou sa loloma tu yani vei kemuni kece na wekaqu e Viti kei vuravura.Vilisi Nadaku Koroibulu,nomuni tamata ni veiqaraviMataqali NatamavakaruaYavusa NaivisereNaisausauNamaraTailevu.

Sosi TuragaiviuSeftonAustraliaPh: 0405639584(02)97864674I am supporting the move to have early election in 2010 for I believe that the people should always be given the right to elect the government. If possible, the election should be based on the 1997 constitution and amendments needed should be done within the confine of the constitution. The 1997 constitution promotes multiparty system which guarantees the partnerships of different party of different races working together. This should be a good place to start.
