Fiji's military regime has cancelled a gay rights march:
Meanwhile, the march through city streets planned for tonight to mark support for gays, lesbians and transgendered, has been cancelled.So, Fiji's military doesn't like gays. Why am I not surprised?
The early evening march had a permit, allowing it to proceed from the Flea Market to Ratu Sukuna Park.
According to organisers, the Fiji Police Force cancelled the permit, saying quote…“we didn’t realise that this was a march for gays and les” unquote.
Organisers also say that according to police, they had received a directive from the Ministry of Defence to cancel the march.
