The Grubsheet Facebook page has been disabled by Facebook after complaints from the Fijian government and others about my coverage of the sex and drug scandal involving the Coalition ministers, Lynda Tabuya and Aseri Radrodro.
For the moment, the material can still be viewed by my 30,000 Facebook “followers” and tens of thousands of casual readers but I cannot access it, no-one can leave messages for me and I am naturally unable to post new content.
While I work to resolve this issue, I am reactivating my website – www.grubsheet.com.au – so that we can get around this blatant attempt at censorship and continue to report events in Fiji without fear or favour.
Soon, I will be reposting here all the material relating to the scandal, including the articles that Facebook has removed and in UNCENSORED form.
Grubsheet made the decision a couple of years back to transfer its content to Facebook because of the fact that more than half a million Fijians have Facebook accounts. But if the dissemination of the information Fijians have a right to know is going to be disrupted in this fashion, then it is time to reactivate the main website.
Vinaka vakalevu to all my Facebook readers for their support. Please spread the word about my Facebook account having been suspended at the instigation of the Coalition government to deprive you of your right to know. And please share the link to Grubsheet Feejee.
