The PPP needs to slacken their hold on our communities
What appropriate timing – elections of Toshaos for Amerindian Villages. This period surely propels the Windmills of the Gods. My sympathy to Mr. Santiago (now) past Toshao of Tobago Hill, Mabaruma. I should remind you that Mr. Santiago is the person who dared to speak the truth about the infamous hassars who withdrew from human gaze. I guess GINA and the Minister wore HD glasses when they saw the huge number of hassars.
The village now sports a new Captain -one who has to carry out the instructions of the powers – no lights after 9.00 p.m. no this, no that, no talking to the press. Ok rename Tobago Hill- Mini Alcatraz.
Mr. Editor, is this how this Government intends to continue treating with the Amerindians? Are these people there to be pushovers – to utter untruths so that our loan requirements could be met?
With all the restrictions now, visitors, especially the press would have to apply for visas to enter these politically protected areas. The PPP needs to slacken their hold on our communities. Let us breathe, consult with us on the proposals you have for us. Stop keeping us in holding pens, only freeing us up every five years.
