Whilst thinking about all those farmers who had their land taken from them six years ago, for the Argyle airport to be built on. All those farmers, about 60 in all, who in 2014 have still not been paid for their land. Farmers dying, unable to afford medical attention. Unable to properly afford to clothe and properly educate their children.
Then I thought about people like Bigger Biggs who had his business destroyed, and sixty workers piled on the scrap heap, families with children and babies unable to feed and support themselves.
Mr Marcus De Freitus who had his Kingstown commercial property compulsorily taken from him, the court proved he was unfairly compensated. Still not paid as ordered by the court after ten years, in 2014 he remains a disappointed but God loving man and lives under the spite, malice and hatred heaped on him by someone within the government.
All those government workers fired from their jobs, because they asked for pay and expenses owed to them. Port police, irrigation workers and hundreds of others to make way for employment of members of the ruling party. More families with children unable to feed and support themselves
I then thought about all the Vincentian brothers and sisters living and working in the Diaspora, how they know exactly what is going on, they have read the evidence, heard the stories from their families, but say or do nothing. Still support the government and watch the administration of hate, spite, malice, evil, but choose to remain cowardly neutral and say or do nothing to stop it.
Those of you in the Diaspora, please! Please! Help us, we remain in your homeland suffering, whilst you are there comfortably watching. Would you sooner believe the lies and deceit; is it perhaps more convenient for you to do that?
Many of those in St Vincent who support Marxism know no different, you in the Diaspora would never tolerate that where you live, so why curse us with it here. Please! Please! Help us, we remain in your homeland suffering, whilst you are there comfortably watching.
It brings to my mind a verse that Dante once said: "The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in times of great moral crises maintain their neutrality"
