  1. People are fed up of so many injustices even if it is preceded with festivities, nepotism and wrestling of people's rights. Hoping to hear one day "the kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and that of his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever" Revelation 11:15.

  2. Bless you Calvin! Why do we have Investigative Journalists in name only in St. Lucia? Thank God, there is a slow erosion of the status quo and ordinary, wise, well-informed citizens like you are putting out the relevant pieces of information out there! Be encouraged, and continue.

  3. Morocco, a leader in human rights and the rights of women. Not!

    Yet our elected officials attend a celebration of the King that oversees a country know for its alleged institutionalized human rights abuses and notable gender equality issues.

    How hypocritical. It's sad. It's disappointing. It really is.

    By showing a large attendance of elected officials and the GG, the Government of St. Lucia is very publicly making a statement as to its complicity with Morocco's human rights issues. Particularly ironic given that our attending GG is a woman.

    It's also interesting that none of our media chose to even touch the issue of Morocco's alleged institutionalized human rights issues occurring as this gala celebration happens as, colloquially speaking, gates open, velvet curtains part, and champagne falls from the ceiling.
