The Timor Post has staff members who have been in constant fear for their lives since last year, when two of them were attacked and left for dead right outside their rundown office. Then again, other journalists in this young nation of East Timor have had similar experiences. By Joseph Laban

A handful of Filipino political exiles have taken refuge in the Netherlands from the brutal regimes back home. Now the personnel and offices of the National Democratic Front Philippines (NDFP), legally allowed in Utrecht since the late 1970s, was raided on August 28. By E. San Juan

MEDIA:

MEDIA:

MAKING PUBLIC JOURNALISM MATTER

Pacific Media Centre: 12 August 2007

Thank you Chris Warren! He breezed in from Australia for the Journalism Matters media summit in Wellington ... his global perspective was crisp, no nonsense and refreshing. By David Robie

EAST TIMOR:

FIJI COUPS:

RESEARCHERS CALL FOR DEEPER UNDERSTANDING

Pacific Media Centre: 14 May 2007

An Australian media researcher has found many journalists covering the first three Fiji coups in 1987 and 2000 were too reliant on elite sources to provide a good understanding of the complex crises. This reliance increased the likelihood of reinforcing the status quo and provided a “limited version of reality”, reports the latest Pacific Journalism Review. By David Robie

FREE PRESS:

MEDIA FREEDOM AND THE DILEMMAS OF AID

Asia-Pacific Network: 3 May 2007

The many journalists working in dangerous and sometimes life-threatening conditions pay the price when the dominant free expression groups continue to focus on the advancement of their own interests. Such a focus frequently results in funds being spent in a questionable manner. By Nick Fillmore

MISINFORMATION - NOTHING NEW IN THE ISLANDS

Taimi 'o Tonga: 16 April 2007

Why must we look to Fiji as an example of democracy? They have lost their own royal family and their democracy as well. With four coups in the last 20 years and a chiefly system tainted by corruption, Fiji has hardly any moral ground to judge other island governments. By Kalafi Moala

TSUNAMI:

DEATH TOLL CLIMBS IN SOLOMON ISLANDS DISASTER
Asia-Pacific Network: 2 April 2007

WHEN THE CHURCH FAILS ... IT NEEDS 'CLEAN-UP'
Asia-Pacific Network: 12 February 2007

Now, the same chameleon Christians all of a sudden started singing the virtues of democracy. In the events of 2000 during George Speight's adventures, these so called Sons of God went and preached hatred against the lesser Gods and performed satanic rituals on the sacred Parliamentary grounds. By Thakur Ranjit Singh

FIJI:

NOW THE GOOD NEWS
Time Magazine: 5 February 2007

When Fiji military commander Frank Bainimarama seized power on Dec. 5, he was instantly denounced by Australia, New Zealand, the U.S., the E.U., the U.N. and the Commonwealth. Exiled Prime Minister Laisenia Qarase continues to vent outrage by phone from his island village, but his countrymen don't seem to be rallying. By Elizabeth Keenan

FIJI:

MILITARY 'CLEAN-UP' - FROM BLESSING TO A BIG QUESTION MARK
Asia-Pacific Network: 17 January 2007

Fiji's fourth coup may have come as a blessing for the people of Fiji. In the last 36 years, indigenous leaders and their militant nationalist allies set in train race-based development policies that cemented inequality and poverty. But the interim government line-up has placed a big question mark over the army's agenda. By Sanjay Ramesh

REGION:

PACIFIC IN 2007: HANDLE WITH CARE

NZ Listener: 13-19 January 2007

Fiji’s fourth coup in two decades came barely three weeks after pro-democracy protest spilled into riots in Tonga. The spotlight has fallen once more on the fragility of Pacific democracy and the forecast for 2007 isn’t terribly promising. By David Robie

The Fiji Times: 6 January 2007
