Media by decree

The compliant FBC reporting: Fiji Media Decree now in Force.

The Suva junta's media decree to consolidate their control over the press is not just going to affect the Aussie owners of the Fiji Times and their proprietorship.
It's not that Fiji Live wasn't aware:Fiji Live still continues in my RSS feeds so it is still going despite the reluctance to comply with the bullying and intimidation.

This afternoon reporting on the media industry development authority - part of the continuing insanity that passes for governance - and I have to note here that our little mate, NZ lawyer Christopher Pryde is on it. Why the (purported) Solicitor-General should be on a media ministry just underscores how few people they have to carry the regime and how desperate they have become.

The regime is moving against its enemies and there will be even less of a free press to say anything about it. Not that RNZ is doing such a flash job itself:Where is the background here?
One of the people to be arrested in coup No.5 - last year's one when the regime abrogated the constitution - was the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Fiji (the NZ High Commission is in the same building). The RBF is now under the control of the dictatorship and the charges against Chaudhry are being laid by the RBF. It's a total crock - there's no confidence in justice dispensed by an unconstitutional judicial system run by a military goon squad and corrupted lawyers.

This is what happens when the natives try to govern themselves.

After this shit is over and the junta has royally fucked up the country it will be once more the white man's burden to go in there and help them on their feet again.

Anon 5:41pm. "This is what happens when the natives try to govern themselves."
— Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum is not a native Fijian - Christopher Pryde and the Australian comms director aren't natives either. Bainimarama - and native Fijians - are only part of the leadership of the regime. The interests being promoted by the regime are going to be more Indian than native Fijian.

Pryde is a fucking disgrace, as are most of the Nzers and Australians propping up this pathetic junta.
So too is our own BSA. One only needs to look at the complaint against Michael Field by Pryde (laid in his official - "interim"/illegal Sol Gen).
One wonders why they considered such a complaint legitimate in terms of jurisdiction.
Very selective of them. I'm picking complaints against NZ Media from say Zimbabwe or Burma would not have received the same attention.
The whole place has become a frikken joke.

"Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum is not a native Fijian - Christopher Pryde and the Australian comms director aren't natives either"

Exactly. The natives needs someone else to run their disgusting little junta because they're too incompetent to run it themselves.

"Bainimarama - and native Fijians - are only part of the leadership of the regime."

But you forget that the army and police are majority fijian and that is where the power lies. They only co-opted the indians in because they're the only economically competent class to run fiji and maybe the chinese too.

Same old story from every post colonial country. Natives are not use to running business so instead they become rentier capitalists leaving others to do the hard work.

It's not the hard work that most indigenous Fijians refuse to do; it is dishonest dealings, lying and ripping off other humans. All the little tricks of dog eat dog and devil take the hindmost practised by those swilled out of england and inflicted on the rest of the planet.
You do understand don't you that not everyone sees being rich and in control an indication of high status?
That many of us feel like Hone Harawira would if our daughters came home with an ass licking, double dealing, whitefella apology of a human being. That is what use is he going to be to our family apart from creating dissent by playing off elements of a once cohesive social unit against each other? For what? A gas guzzling car and a house that leaks whenever it rains?

Shit, if my daughter came home with a illiterate uneducated, dole bludging, drug abusing, blackfella then I'd feel the same way as you do.

On the other hand some of us look beyond sterotypes which you seem incapable of doing.
