Temporary Permit Granted

30/11/2016

The NGO Coalition on Human Rights welcomes the granting of a temporary permit by the Fiji Roads Authority to have a march in celebration of World Human Rights Day.

The march is scheduled to take place on Saturday 10th December.

The temporary permit granted is based on conditions. The march will take place from 9am to 10am from the Flea Market to Sukuna Park. The roads that will be used are Rodwell Road through Victoria Parade and Scott Street.

“We are ecstatic with the FRA decision as it allows members of the public and the human rights community to celebrate Human Rights Day. Whilst this is good news, we will now await another level of approval from the Fiji Police Force.” said the interim NGOCHR Chair, Michelle Reddy.
