Random thoughts for PNG today – Just like in 2011.
By Allan Bird | 19 November 2020.
The same group of men who executed PNGs first Parliamentary Coup in 2011 are now back together in Vanimo.
Just like in 2011, the Law was broken on Friday 13th November 2020 to start the process.
Just like in 2011, Parliamentary numbers were used to pass illegal motions and illegal laws to maintain power.
Just like in 2011, the same team that planned and executed the first assault on our Judiciary is now in Vanimo making plans.
The same team that ran our country from 2011 to 2019 is now camped in Vanimo with some good men who may have forgotten what happened in 2011.
I would like to appeal to those good leaders to recognize who is planning, running and funding their camp to realise the similarities between 2011 and 2020. Because I have not forgotten 2011.
Just like in 2011, ask yourself which side will obey the Courts and which side has the willingness and the record of assaulting the Courts.
The same people who conducted our first coup ran our country from 2011 to 2019. Remember that.
To the man I respect most on that side: Hon Dr Allan Marat. You were on the wrong side in 2011, remember our discussions and please reconsider your position. I appeal to the other good men on that side to see what is likely to happen and ask yourself if you will be part of that.
Just like in 2011, the man who stood strong for the National Alliance Government back then is now our Prime Minister.
I stood with the National Alliance Government in 2011, I was a PANGU member at the time.
I call on PNG to remember 2011, lest we forget.
