The Fiji Independent News Service (FINS) was established in Australia in June 1987 under the wing of the Movement for Democracy in Fiji following the first coup in Fiji. It ran an effective media campaign aimed at persuading key Australian and New Zealand trade unions to maintain trade bans on Fiji. FINS press releases and its newsletter, Fiji Situation Report (PMB Doc 419), gave details of arrests, human rights violations and political news, providing an alternative perspective to the established international press. The FINS Chairperson was Don Dunstan; the Directors were Krishna Datt, Dr Tupeni Baba, Senator Bruce Childs and Professor Ted Wheelwright.
