The Fiji-based NGO, the Pacific Concerns Resource Centre, says while it is for democracy in Tonga it doesn't support violent means to achieve this,.

A PCRC spokesperson, Peter Emberson, says his organisation advocates peaceful ways to resolve differences.

"We continues to appeal for the supporters of democracy principles to exhaust all means available internally and to resolve this issue peacefully and that's what PCRC has asked for."
