Depending on how one defines a coup, Fiji last Tuesday had its
fifth or sixth coup (depending on what you call a coup), this time led by Fiji's military commander,Commodore Frank Bainimarama.
But in Fiji, things are never quite what they seem.
Specialist in Pacific media and journalism and their contexts, Dr
Mark Hayes, is a very close observer of the Pacific Region and Fiji,
as well as a frequent traveller Out There. Back in late April, 2006, Mark predicted the outcome of the 2006 Fiji election, a return of the government led by now ousted Prime Minister, Laisenea Qarase who was himself installed as Interim Prime Minister by Commodore Bainimarama in the middle of 2000.
Dr Hayes does a weekly Pacific News Wrap - 'Mo oe mai i le Pasifika (For you, from the Pacific)' - on Mondays for the subscriber-only alert and digest service, The Daily Briefing. Last week, he did daily UpDates on the developing Fiji crisis, drawing on his extensive sources and contacts.
Dr Hayes never goes to the resorts in Fiji. He plunges into Suva and surrounds, talks with and, more importantly, listens to, his array of well placed and astute local observers, and with a lot of
historical, anthropological, political, and sociological reading,
stirs the mix, and tries to make accurate sense of it all.
Background bridging music:
"Night Marchers" by Sudden Rush
"Jamoa Jam" by Black Rose

Finalists of the Nimbin Poetry World Cup; performance poetry and selection of the winner. For the last 10 years Nimbin has awarded the Cup to the performance poet who, in the eyes of the judges and the people performs great poetry. This year, a woman was judged as the finest of the five finalists by a panel including the winner of last year's Cup. Challenging, amusing, witty, dramatic ... it's all there. Over the last few years performers have been coming from Sydney, Brisbane, and further to perform with the best of Nimbin.

Diana belts it out in her inimitable style for the Nimbin Headers soccer team, at a fundraiser benefit held last month. Locals braved the drizzle to see this loyal local perform for her people . Diana has made her mark in California and other parts of the USA, but isn't too proud to do a number of benefits for the local community. This homecoming Queen doesn't have a gun, but she has a enough attitude to take care of a dozen country towns like Nimbin. She wields emotional honesty with a talent for strong lyric. A raw, unplugged live performance with several of her signature tunes, that make her a favorite to a new generation.
