Another Dictator Falls

Another Dictator Falls

By Ratu Tevita Mara
27 August 2011

August 23rd was a propitious day for democracy groups. It was the day the brave and valiant people of Libya took control of Tripoli from Muammar Gaddafi, the tyrant, and his oppressive and corrupt Government.

I extend my warmest congratulations to the brave people of Libya.

The oppressed and long-suffering people of Fiji are also taking a stand against Bainimarama’s evil, corrupt and brutal regime. They will no longer “turn the other cheek!”

The respected and venerable Methodist Minister, Rev Tevita Koroi, defied the military goons that were sent to take him to the RFMF Headquarters for a beating by the tyrant Bainimarama. Reverend Koroi refused to budge saying, “Shoot me if you want, but I am not going with you.” This venerable soldier of God prevailed over the tyrant Bainimarama. It was also a victory for democracy

The Dictator Bainimarama and his conman Khaiyum, cancelled the Methodist Conference because the three top Church officials refused to bow down to the military junta. The officials won a victory for democracy.

The Methodist officials were seized by the RFMF and taken to military HQ. I do not know what transpired but I do believe that their dedication to God and to his Ministry was stronger than Bainimarama, his hooligans and their guns. This was another victory for democracy.

People of Fiji, the Viti Revolutionary Forces (VRF) have also started their campaign to remove the illegal military junta and to return freedom, democracy and the rule of law to Fiji. Lend your support.

Stand up and denounce the oppressive and illegal military junta led by the murdering power mad Bainimarama and Khaiyum. Support the Methodist church. Start civil resistance now. Go on leave, distribute confidential documents and ignore orders or lend your support however you can. Satyagraha!

Together, like the brave and valiant people of Libya, we will remove, in the very near future, the tyrant Bainimarama and his evil, corrupt and brutal regime. And together, we will rebuild Fiji.

ENDS
