Representatives of various faith organisations, youth groups and the Fiji Police Force were at a workshop at the Salvation Army Hall in Labasa, yesterday.

The workshop, organised by the Dreams Nest Youth Organisation, was focused on how to bring together the various religious denominations to address the issue of discrimination.

The organisation’s president, T J Loloma, said the issue needed to be addressed because Fiji also observed Human Rights Day this week.

“According to our findings there are more than 25 Christian organisations,” Mr Loloma said.

He said with this many Christian organisations existing it was no wonder that Christians here have so many problems.

“It is mainly because we all have different perspectives of looking at things and we are all taught differently” he said.

“With these different organisations coming together we are able to discuss the issues faced by youths and members of the public on how discrimination can be solved at this level” he said.

He said it was good that the Police presented a paper on how the Duavata Policing.
