Fiji Leaks Gift to Fiji: THE GHAI CONSTITUTION: Fijileaks delivers Professor Yash Ghai's "Xmas Gift" to Fiji

I will be releasing the detailed "Explanatory Report" later in the day; meanwhile celebrate our triumph over secrecy, and remember the immortal words of Winston Churchill:
"You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police. Yet in their hearts there is unspoken - unspeakable! - fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts! Words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home, all the more powerful because they are forbidden. These terrify them. A little mouse - a little tiny mouse! - of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic." 
I say with Ralph Waldo Emerson to Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum:
“Every burned book ...[Ghai's constitutional booklet].. enlightens the world; every suppressed or expunged word reverberates through the earth from side to side.”  
Read the Draft Constitution in full, download it, and distribute it to every person in Fiji and beyond her shores! God bless the coup and cyclone victims!
