dc.description.abstract This collection contains an Internet archive of crisis coverage of the 2000 Fiji coup by University of the South Pacific journalism students. David Robie and journalism students at the University of the South Pacific (USP) had been reporting the George Speight coup in Fiji on their website Pacific Journalism Online. The site was closed down by the University of the South Pacific administration on 29 May 2000 in response to threats, and new stories about the Fiji crisis were not permitted to be published on the Fiji site. For three months, University of Technology, Sydney, journalists Fran Molloy and Kate MacDonald published stories and photographs from Fiji journalism students and USP staff on the Australian Centre for Independent Journalism (ACIJ) website. The site was designed and set up within hours by Fran Molloy, and with the support of ACIJ director Chris Nash and head of journalism department Wendy Bacon, the USP journalism students were able to have their stories published shortly after they were filed. en
