The meeting resulted in the setting up of a office from which, chairman Ahmed Bamji said, volunteers will actively lobby for international efforts for the solution of the Fiji crisis within the 1997 Constitution.
"This issue" said Ahmed Bamji "is not about race, despite what some of the media have been reporting. It is about the fundamental democratic rights of all human beings."
