All of the coups have been for self serving self advancement and not for the benefit of our Fiji as a country
.......There was a lot of after-the-fact justifying of why the coups were necessary: the easiest to understand narrative was that Fijians/i Taukei had not had fair access to the economic benefits of the country, and therefore the coups happened as a logical consequence of that disenfranchisement.
......The real motivation behind those coups (and subsequent) was that there existed in Fiji a tightly associated clan of business and political figures who felt an overweening sense of entitlement, and whose jobs for life were threatened by the Bavadra victory in April 1987.
It was that unholy alliance of Coup-Enablers that conspired to create the circumstances that delivered 1987, 2000 and 2006............

Fiji trade unions say international community is aware of country’s labour conditions
Radio New Zealand International reports that the National Secretary of the Fiji Trades Union Congress has condemned the Fiji Government’s efforts to justify the poor labour conditions in Fiji to the international community.
The Khaiyum buddy and President of the Fiji Commerce and Employers Federation, Mark Matthews (Managing Director to Rentokil), also praised the draconian Essential Industries decree saying that it was brought in to protect businesses and industries that are critical to the national economy and that the outcomes have not impacted on workers’ rights. What bloody rubbish!
If you cannot get through to any police station or post when trying to report a crime then please contact anyone of the following Senior police officers 24/7:
........We sympathise with the Police Force who come under huge pressure whenever prisoners escape, when we all know that it is society which ultimately creates the criminals and the crimes, which we then demand the Police Force deal with.
But a just society has to ensure that escaped prisoners, however badly they may have treated society, are also given a fair trial by our judiciary, and suitably punished if they are found guilty, but according to law.
Prisoners also have human rights and they also have loved ones, who are often filled with despair and shame at the crimes that their family members commit.
The condemning public might think more about the message and not shoot the messenger, Shamima Ali, who has been a brave Commissioner for Human Rights of all people in Fiji, prisoners or otherwise.
However much pain escaped prisoners may cause us (and they surely do), for us to deny their human rights to justice according to the Fiji laws, is to become inhuman ourselves.
The illegal bainimarama dictatorship has been mismanaging FNPF funds through Khaiyum and ajit Godagoda and they continue to do so at the cost of pensioners.
The Fiji Labour Party wrote to the Fiji National Provident Fund seeking information on its decision last year to expend a further $12 million on the failed Momi Bay resort development project..............
The American Federation of Labour-Congress of Industrial Organisations (AFL-CIO) Hearing in the United States against Fiji for breach of labor rights and standards has ended its preliminary hearings with issuing a 21 day Notice served on Fiji to resolve the labor rights breaches or face the consequences of losing the duty free access.
This effectively means all the decrees that infringe rights and interest of workers will have to be revoked............
