Message to the Fiji Security Forces

Message to the Fiji Security Forces

BY RATU TEVITA MARA, 29 August 2011

The murderer Bainimarama and Khaiyum’s brutal dictatorship and tyranny on our own people has reached a critical moment.

The oppression, corruption, poverty and brutality is rising, a 12 year old boy had his fingers broken under Bainimarama’s orders, but so is the level of anger and frustration. Protesters in the form of the new VRF group have taken it upon themselves to take action following the disrespectful treatment of the Methodist Church leaders and the cancellation of the Methodist Conference. Fiji is passing the point where brutality and threats by the military junta will no longer silence the people. The oppressive situation needs to end before it gets out of hand and there is violence and/or loss of life. We must not reach this point.

Therefore, I call upon all members of both the Fiji Police Force and the Fiji Military Forces, loyal to Fiji, to remember your sworn oaths to protect the citizens and people of Fiji. As the sworn guardians you must take back control of your once proud institutions from the murdering Bainimarama and his tiny group of dedicated power hungry cronies. You must restore respect for the Rule of law and restore the peoples trust in the security forces. Under the murderer Bainimarama you are regularly being instructed to turn a blind eye to breaches of the law, corruption and to the brutality on our own people. This is not what you joined up for. Our people are suffering, you and your families are suffering, and so is Fiji.

To help end this you need to turn your focus on to Fiji’s real enemy: the murderer Bainimarama. With his laughable promises of free and fair elections in 2014, his continued theft of public funds, lies to the international community and the continued torture of our own people, the murderer Bainimarama has lost all credibility. Bainimarama betrayed the loyal CRW soldiers and had them silenced to cover his involvement in the 2000 Coup. The murderer Bainimarama again manipulated the military and staged the 2006 Coup to protect himself from being arrested for his involvement in the 2000 Coup and the deaths of the soldiers. This evil all needs to end now.

We all need to unite and say enough is enough! Please support the Methodist Church and the Unions, and start passive resistance now. Together we shall rebuild our beloved Fiji -- A democratic, prosperous and peaceful Fiji for us and our children, and our children’s children.
