Fiji freedom movement to meet in Adelaide

Updated 16 November 2012, 18:47 AEDT

Tomorrow the Australian city of Adelaide will host the annual meeting of the Fiji Freedom and Democracy Movement.

The movement was created in the wake of the 2006 coup, as a way for Fijians living in Australia to opposed the military backed regime that has ruled the country ever since.

But this year's meeting is happening as Fiji begins to draft a new constitution to replace the one scrapped in 2009.

And as Pacific Correspondent Campbell Cooney reports, it's that constitution which has the attention of those travelling to the Southern city.

Presenter: Campbell Cooney

Speaker:Ro Teimumu Kepa, Suliasi Daunitutu, President of the FFDM
