Fiji: Protesting the dictatorship

Fijian dictator Voreqe Bainimarama will be visiting New Zealand this weekend to campaign at expatriate voters. But he won't be getting away with it unopposed:

"There's a risk of ridicule in coming here. There's going to be protests. He's not used to that. He's going to have people heckling him in his speech."

A protest is planned to coincide with Mr Bainimarama's talk at Manukau's Vodafone Events Centre on Saturday - and posters advertising the protest label the leader a "dictator".

Because New Zealand is a free country, where you can speak your mind. Unlike Fiji.

If you're in Auckland, please go along and show Bainimarama that kiwis don't approve of dictatorship.
