    After 31 yrs and 3 coups and a drastic change in demography a new Fiji is emerging. Also Indians are no longer a political threat but the power play in the Pacific is fast changing which is totally different from cold war situation years back. Fiji needs to find its own place and an inclusive approach for its progress and development. God bless Fiji.

    K’s naïveté is palpable and Fiji will never be an egalitarian society. Theft of land? 170 years no evidence of this taking place yet global examples of land theft committed by the Colonialists demonstrated throughout the colonies. K does not know who his/her enemy is. Aiming hatred at the community that has remained, contributed socially and culturally, and largely bank rolled the economy is misguided. K must prefer accepting Chinese and Korean dollars to grow infrastructure and no interest in adopting or adapting to the local culture. Sounds familiar except the currency is cash not occupation.

    Fijian Indians not Indo-Fijians. Fijian is not a common identity, you are lying. Fijian is the name of indigenous people calling yourselves “Indo-Fijians” is an attempt to colonize the identity of the people whose land you want to steal & pretend to be Indigenous when you are not.
