The Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement (FDFM), a so called lobby group in Australia is rallying behind the United Front for a Democratic Fiji.

FDFM President Usaia Waqatairewa insists the movement is apolitical – even though the United Front is made up of political parties. The movement has held a number of public events in Sydney Australia, denouncing the Bainimarama administration.

Waqaitairewa confirms Fiji Labour Party Leader Mahendra Chaudhry recently spoke at a meeting of the Fiji Democracy and Freedom Movement.“This is part of our program to organize a monthly mini forum to the proposed September elections and we were lucky enough as we preparing for our first one, we got words that Mr Chaudhry was in town so we can make use of this moment as former Prime Minister”.

Waqatairewa says many who attended were not members of the FDFM“There is a lot of people there I’ve only seen for the first time in my life, the core people who are supporters of the Democracy movement probably will be about a quarter of the people there, but the rest of them I’ve never seen them”.

At its last meeting, Waqatairewa says he asked those in attendances to donate funds to the FDFM however, no financial assistance was forthcoming.

  1. Mack – it is now becoming public that the election that your self appointed minister of election is organising for Fiji is nothing more than a scandalous attempt bring legitimacy to a regime that is known for all the wrong reasons! Citizens of Australia and NZ know that Fiji has been forced into an election that is stage-managed for Bainimarama’s benefit and that their governments has merely chosen to support the scandal for political expediency sake! The support for this election will soon change as reality settles in that reputation of both governments will be on the line too for endorsing what is clearly a fraudulent activity!
