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: A Victim of Indian Foreign Policy? Nov 3, 1988 terrorist attack and GMR in perspective.

#Maldives: As November 3, 2012, the 24th anniversary of the terrorist attack on Maldives approaches, public sentiment against the Indian multinational GMR's lease of the Maldives' international airport has gained momentum. Inflammatory speeches by local politicians and local media reports associate the GMR-MACL lease agreement on a scale with the November 3rd 1988 terrorist attack. The 1988 terror attack was by a group of Maldivians headed by Sikka Ahmed Ismail Maniku (uncle of former President Nasheed) who brought 80 Tamil mercenaries to overthrow the government of the time. India's role then was that of the knight in shining armor, the Indian military and navy charging to the rescue in Operation Cactus. Nineteen people were killed in the terror attack.

Amidst the increasingly strident calls on the Maldivian Government to "throw GMR out" and to recapture the "Maldivians' airport for Maldivians", Maldivian commentators on social media question the I…
