The Lease News Some Did Not Want To Know

Have a good look at the graph. It shows an effect of the “coup culture” that few have mentioned.

They prefer to talk about the restrictions on their freedom of expression, ignoring the impact on the basic, livelihood freedoms of Indo-Fijian cane farmers whose leases were not renewed, sometimes, believe it or not, at the suggestion of NLTB officials who assured the iTaukei owners the Qarase government would pick up the tabs for their loss of rental money.

Move forward. The Fiji Sun reported that over 6,000 leases have been renewed since the Bainimarama takeover.
No other Fiji paper, and no Government opponent, thought this information was worth reporting, but they continued to report and protest their lack of freedom.

True democrats believe that freedom comes with responsibility, including the responsibility for the less fortunate.
