I think it's time that we all had a bit of wake-up call and stop being naive
the churches and I mean all of them,in Tonga are part of the problem is not the solution
when was the last time you heard of any church leader voicing criticism of the Royal family or the government?
Even when the ship went down with 79 babies children and women and men, there was no criticism coming from the church.
There was no demand for justice from the church.
You see these clergy have an easy time, in our country, they demand money from the poor people, and they are given it in droves
they are part of the criminal elite that must be removed from our country.
There is no point saying God bless Tonga, these clergy are the ones that are oppressing us
they will be expelled from our country along with the Royal family, after all even in the Nuremberg trials, silence was taken as complicit acceptance of war crimes.
The silence of the clergy in our country, means that they are complicit in the oppression of our people.
Even if they had 1 ounce of social justice in their hearts, these clergy would make some type of criticism or demonstration, what do you get just media reports about the incredible feasts that they put on for themselves.
Make no doubt about it, if they maintain their silence in the future, the People's trials, will ask a simple question. Why didn't you speak out about the poverty, corruption, oppression, that's obvious in our country?
It will be too late for them to save their skins, when they are in the firing line.
There must be in insurrection, hopefully peacefully
yet we must have one.
We have nothing to lose but our chains, we have a country to win

It's not the people of tonga who are sick, its you
most of the people are living on less than $1.25 per day
and all you can say is that they are still eating
you are nothing but a grub
these families in our country are living on rubbish tips, and on the edges of swamps.
And all you can say is that they are still eating
I would love that to be said by Thomas Jefferson, or George Washington
you're living in Brisbane, why don't you spend the day on a rubbish tip. If it's so acceptable for other people.
You are the type of person who still kisses the arse of the King, while he steals the money out of your pockets
