Human rights groups in Fiji hope they can convince the Fiji Roads Authority to change its mind to stop a march to mark World Human Rights Day.

The march was set for Saturday December 10th in Suva but the Authority says it is unnecessary, would cause traffic disruptions and be an inconvenience for the people of Fiji.

The chair of the NGO Coalition for Human Rights, Michelle Reddy, explained what has happened to Don Wiseman.
