THE Fiji Police Force yesterday cancelled a march by the Ecumenical Centre for Research, Education and Advocacy citing it as a "national threat".
The march that was supposed to begin from Vanua Arcade to Civic Centre as part of ECREA's celebration for International Day of Peace was stopped at the eleventh hour.
Father Kevin Barr of ECREA said they had prepared themselves with placards, posters and banners but were told that they could not go ahead with their plans.
"We had been issued with a permit but I don't know why our march was cancelled," Father Barr said.
When contacted yesterday, Senior Superintendent of Police Rusiate Tudravu referred all questions to Fr Barr.
"When the permit is cancelled that means it's cancelled," SSP Tudravu said.
However, later on during the day, another march took place at Battery Rd where more than 200 people wore T-shirts with "Just Peace-Just Wages for All" printed on them.
They had carried their placards and banners, which were also part of their submissions to the Constitution Commission.
