SUBJECT: FDFM Appeals to Forum Island Leaders not to attend “Engaging Fiji Meeting”
The Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement (FDFM) would like to openly appeal to Pacific Islands Forum leaders not to attend the so called „Engaging Fiji Meeting’ because it is the desperate action of an out of touch pariah dictatorship.
The meeting has been hastily set up as an alternative to the now differed Melanesian Spearhead Groups meeting to be hosted in Fiji and was cancelled at the eleventh hour by its present chairman, Prime Minster Edward Natapei of Vanuatu.
Pacific Island leaders must be reminded that to do so is to give legitimacy to an illegal regime that has been proven in Fiji‟s Court of Appeal as illegal. The legitimacy that Bainimarama so desperately craves and Forum Island Leaders should not allow.
FDFM strongly appeal to Pacific Islands Forum leaders that given they all gained their status of leadership through legal means, they must not taint themselves by associating with a self appointed leader who illegally grab leadership for himself and will one day be made answerable for his treasonous actions.
As national leaders of you sovereign nation, please ask yourselves how would you like history to judge you?
Secondly, as Pacific Island Leaders, please do not be deceived by an illegal self appointed leader who has proven to the people of Fiji that he speaks with a forked tongue. Let not that forked tongue also deceive you.
Lastly, the Good Book quotes the Lord Jesus warning the people “do not cast your pearls among swine for lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you”.2
Bainimarama has rend Melanesian solidarity by first trying to hijack the meeting as an alternative to the Pacific Islands Forum and when that failed, he has continuous to do so by calling an alternative meeting which now has the Solomon Islands Prime Minister confirmed as attending.
We hope you will all look through this deception.
