By The Canberra Times 6 July 2010
Fiji coup leader Commodore Voreqe Bainimarama says his country wants to be part of the Pacific Islands Forum again, but Australia and New Zealand have not acknowledged the military government's efforts for reform.
Commodore Bainimarama said his government remained open to dialogue, though the Forum Ministerial Action Group has been banned from visiting the country for saying that the situation in Fiji has worsened, the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation reported. ''It is most unfortunate that some of the foreign countries are turning a blind eye in terms of development and the reforms that this government is carrying out,''
Commodore Bainimarama said. MP slates extremists Preachers of Islamic extremism should be barred from Australia, a federal MP says. Michael Johnson, a lower house independent, has also called for a debate on banning the burqa. He said Prime Minister Julia Gillard and his former boss, Opposition Leader Tony Abbott, needed to repudiate the leadership of Hizb ut-Tahrir, a global Islamic group which wants Australian Muslims to reject democracy. ''Join together and repudiate the extremism of this global movement and ... guarantee that none of its international preachers ever receive a visa to step on to Australian soil again,'' Mr Johnson said in a statement. The release was issued in response to an article in The Australian which reported Hizb ut-Tahrir leaders urging participants in a western Sydney conference to join the struggle for a transnational Islamic state.
Fijians Must Disconnect from Telecom
Fiji Vodafone Fiji and Connect Fiji NOW
The illegal Compulsory Registration of Customers for Telephone Services Decree 2010 is a wonderful opportunity for the people of Fiji to exercise their FREEDOM as consumers to VOLUNTARILY DISCONNECT their home phone lines, mobile phones and internet for 3 months and WATCH the FUN.
Amalgamated Telecom Holdings Limited (ATH) comprises approximately 48.4% of the Total Market Capitalization of the South Pacific Stock Exchange (SPSE) equivalent to FJ $422.1m as at 30 June 2010.
The ATH recorded a net profit of $64.1m in 2008, $51.0m in 2009 (a decline of 19%) and $15.4m in 2010 (a decline of 53.3%) announced last week (July 2 2010) amidst the avalanche of illegal decrees which distracted the PEOPLE and ATH SHAREHOLDERS from the TRUTH.
This was a 53.3% decline in profit as a direct result of inter alia “falling sales revenue”.
Now under normal circumstances heads should have rolled but we are under a military government that cannot understand simple financial statements nor analyze trends.
As the good old Tomasi Vakatora Jr stated (FT 05-21-10) "Unfortunately, from where we stand at the moment, we see the same situation continuing into this current financial year ending 31 March 2011,… Consequently, we have budgeted for the same level of business as the last financial year ended 31 March 2010, in terms of profitability and dividend payments to shareholders" .
So it is time that we expedite this “falling sales revenue” and get ATH to redo their budget because there should not be the “same level of business” under an oppressive illegal military government, there should be no business unless the illegal decree is revoked by Tin Pots side kick.
Fiji Freedom Bloggers please spread the word to every Fiji Citizen that has a telephone with Telecom Fiji or a mobile with Vodafone Fiji or internet with Internet Services Fiji Ltd (t/a Connect) to DISCONNECT in PEACEFUL DEFIANCE OF THE Compulsory Registration of Customers for Telephone Services Decree 2010.POWER TO THE PEOPLE -----------------------------------------------------
New Pacific Islands Media Association Emerging
SUPPRESSED OUTRAGE LEADS TO PLAN FOR A NEW PACIFIC ISLANDS MEDIA ASSOCIATION

A group of independent media operators in the Pacific is setting up an alternative regional body to the Pacific Island News Association, Radio Australia reported.
The Pacific Island News Association vice president John Woods has resigned, criticising the organisation for being too politicised, and failing to advocate on behalf of journalists - particularly in Fiji.
Woods said independent publishers and broadcasters from Vanuatu, Samoa, Tonga and Cook Islands were planning to set up a new body to represent the region's media.
He said the new organisation would encompass media groups from the entire Pacific region, from Wallace and Futuna to French Polynesia.
He said, "Disillusionment has grown and spread throughout the region amongst journalists and media operators because of the inaction of Pacific Island News Association to the point of frustration.
"And the suppressed outrage is going to manifest itself with the silent transfer of support and allegiance to a new entity, which has the working title of Pacific Media Association."
But the president of Pacific Island News Association said he was not too worried by moves to set up a rival group to represent the media in the Pacific. President Moses Stevens, from Vanuatu, said the idea had been around for a while.
