NFP Convention and Youth: 'For an active citizenry is the greatest enemy of an oppressive regime. So my fellow citizens, will you be active?
"For an active citizenry is the greatest enemy of an oppressive regime. So my fellow citizens, will you be active? I direct my attention to you - who are 30, 40, 50, 60 year old today. Whatever has happened in the past in our nation, happened on your watch. It happened while the torch was in your hand. But I assure this convention today that when the torch is passed, when the baton is passed to the youth of today, the future will be different. The future will be better."

It's time NFP got a campaign bus of its own to rival the FFP's blue bus. In fact two buses would be better. One for Vitilevu and one for Vanualevu to keep doing the rounds around the islands to constantly remind the voters that an alternative party is ready to govern for the good of the country and the people.

Chiku makes a good suggestion but a bus does not come cheap. If you can't get a bus get a cane lorry and bolt an old bus body on it or a caravan and do your logo and campaign slogan and colour on it. But go to the people in that colourful way. Jaganath Sami said at the NFP convention that the choice for the voters is very clear. That's true. But it must be made clearer to ordinary voters around the country. A grand convention is good. Going directly to the people is better for securing victory at the next election.

Makes you wonder about all those trips the coupist PM Bainimarama made to China, doesn't it ? What influence has China had in Fiji politics under the Bainimarama regime?

How many ' Change is Coming ' tee- shirts have been made and distributed to the supporters of the party ? The Party and its election slogan should visible in the public domain daily. Having it up on the wall at the party convention was necessary but it's not sufficient. The party has to be SEEN to be a viable alternative government. Party officials walking around in fancy shirts will not project the right image. It's elitist. Like the Fiji Football officials walking about in fancy dress but soccer is no show in the country. Let ordinary people walk around in the streets and the market and the sports grounds with the NFP tee-shirt with its slogan.

Fiji does not have democratic rulers who respect citizen rights and citizen activism. Fiji has thug rulers. You heckle them you likely to get a visit from their henchmen, which include men in uniform and you likely to end up in hospital ...
