I thought about all those farmers who had their land taken from them six years ago so that the Argyle airport can be built.
About 60 persons, many of them farmers, have still not been paid for their land. Farmers are dying, unable to afford medical attention, unable to properly afford to clothe and properly educate their children.
Then I thought about people like Bigger Bigs who had his business destroyed, and 60 workers piled on the scrap heap — families with children and babies unable to feed and support themselves.
Mr. Marcus De Freitas, who had his commercial property in Kingstown taken from him and still awaiting payment 10 years later.
De Freitas, a God-fearing and loving man, is on the receiving end of spite, malice, and hatred.
All those government workers fired from their jobs, because they asked for pay and expenses owed to them. 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. Some 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 Saint 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.”
