WORLD PRESS FREEDOM DAY: As the Good, Bad and the Nasty of Fiji media gathered at FNU to speak on the role of education in media, they all miserably failed to point out that the FNU has blocked Fijileaks site!
The United Nations has declared that access to information is a fundamental right of everyone but FNU has Blacklisted Fijileaks, preventing its students and staff from accessing the site to read 'FNUGATES'
Whenever Fijileaks receives leaked documents, we ask the 'leakers': Why didn't you go to the local media? Their response, "No way, they are a bunch of Bainimarama-Khaiyum spies, especially the Fiji Sun, Fijivillage News and Fiji Broadcasting Commission. They will give us a cup of tea, and will phone and hand us to the military to be bashed'
MEDIA MOCKERY ON DISPLAY: The Fiji National University’s Department of Media and Journalism, in collaboration with Pacific Islands News Association (PINA) hosts World Press Freedom Day with the theme ‘The Role of Education in Media Freedom' - with Fijileaks BLOCKED! Why? Unlike the supine Fijian journalists, we have exposed a raft of stories exposing the rampant corruption sweeping the FNU
FIJILEAKS TO FAIYAZ KOYA: We know that you were on the LIST and were instrumental in dismantling the Data Bureau, claiming Fijians were suffering at DA's hands BUT tell us about your family's unpaid NBF Loan
"For more than a decade ordinary Fijians have been suffering at the hands of, the only credit reporting agency in Fiji, the Data Bureau, which has not undertaken proper verification of the information provided to them nor has it put in place any credible system to correct their information. Complaints from the consumers have gone unheard by the Bureau." FAIYAZ KOYA, FFP Minister for Industry & Trade on the Fair Reporting of Credit Act
"...Secrecy is the keystone of all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy... censorship. When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, 'This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know,' the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives." --Robert A. Heinlein, -If This Goes On
