The March towards 2013 (1)

Like any other Government, even the Nasheed-Administration is highly dependent on legitimacy; it is up to you to undermine this legitimacy, to question their credibility. As part of the movement for change, citizens must begin to doubt and challenge the actions of the rulers. For better or worse, any change is highly dependent on the ability to convince people that those to whom they have entrusted their future (the Country’s future) are paid agents of capitalist dons.

You must find ways to convince Nasheed fans that he’s no more than a fraud – an inefficient puppet, used by the clans that rule our tourism industry, to control the emotions and psychology of Maldivians. Nasheed’s 10 to 15 thousand fan believe in him the way mystical people believe in their God, you must doubt this faith, this belief in his ‘imagined’ mystique. You must undermine the credibility of agents working for the system that has produced this puppet, expose their pay, and expose their loyalties. You must do everything you can to teach people in your circle that their heroes are nothing more than agents of repression.

You must take apart the blind faith that some Maldivians have in the liars who twist stories to serve their bosses.

The very moment that people begin to doubt their ‘idols’ they begin to crave a more human system of beliefs. The moment that Maldivians wake up to the fabrications and lies of MNBC1, they will want the truth.

You cannot spark a movement for change until you’ve delegitimized the incumbent Administration and its puppet representatives. You cannot spark a change until you’ve ridiculed the power structures of the ruling party. Their hardcore fanfare have been conditioned for years to believe that everything the demigods they worship say is the absolute truth.

So go out there and bust the myth!

Our people have been wired to accept the blatant lies of their rulers - short-circuit this interaction. Stand in the way between the promoters of the Administration and their blind faith in Administration’s angelic goodness.

For the sake of the future of your own people, you have to totally dismantle the carnivorous machinery whose interest Nasheed’s Administration serves – The capitalist rulers of the Maldivian Tourism Industry!

The Quality of Political Appointees in the Nasheed Administration

As almost seven months pass since President Mohamed Nasheed took power in the Maldives, Maldivian citizens despair of ever seeing the much promised improvements in their livelihoods. The state treasury has been exhausted within this brief period, and the economy has declined to an extent worse than the aftermath of the 2004 Asian Tsunami. Escalating price of consumer goods, collapse of social services, increasing food insecurity and declining real income have thrown more people below the poverty line. While President Nasheed is engrossed in his hate and persecution campaign against political opponents, his government has ground to a halt.

The Nasheed administration came into power promising reduced expenditures, increased government revenue and a clamp down on corruption in top government circles. President Nasheed’s first budget (2009) has a 7 billion deficit (nearly 5 billion more than the previous administration’s last budget, and government revenue has fallen by more than 28% since…

#Maldives: 24 years after Nov 3 massacre: Are the terrorists back masquerading as a political party? Part 1

#Maldives: November 3rd, 2012 marks the 24th anniversary of the bloody massacre that left the blackest of stains on Maldivian hearts and history. Nineteen innocent Maldivians were slaughtered and several injured. Hundreds were held at gunpoint for hours, many later taken away as hostages. Immense damage was given to public and private property. Maldives was rescued by troops sent by Indian Premier Rajiv Gandhi. The leader of the failed coup was a man called Sikka Ahmed Ismail Maniku, a man who had previous convictions for coup attempts against previous governments. The coup leader's nephew, Mohamed Nasheed, was installed as President in 2008, at the head of a political party whose top leadership comprised of family members and others involved in the 1988 November 3 massacre.

Nasheed's cabinet, senior political advisors and state ministers included terrorists convicted for their involvement in the November 3 massacre. As Nasheed denounces the current government of Dr. Mohamed W…

Maldives Parliament; President Nasheed's military take action on the Parliament floor

Male' Maldives.

President Nasheed has again wielded his military to attack opposition MPs, this time on the Parliament floor while the parliament was in session. Media reports are streaming in that military personnel are active inside the parliament hall, forcibly removing opposition members from the hall. Some opposition MPs are reported to leaving on their own, under orders from the military personnel to either leave the parliament floor or be removed with the use of force.

Today's Parliament session to debate the various loans proposed by the Nasheed Government was halted due to points of order taken by opposing MPs. Opposition MPs noted that the parliament session on the topic (Government loans) was proceeding out of order as the session period had expired. They pointed out that the legal process for extending the session was for a member to proposed the extension and for another to support it. However, this process had not been followed, with the Speaker of Parliament Abd…
