Our right to march supports our freedom not to march

Alred C. Frett

Let your Voice be heard and stand for something or fall for anything:

We have passed the day of decision whether or not to march against the UK’s ‘Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill Amendment’ as it affects the VI… As a supporter of freedom of expression including peaceful protest, I have no problem marching anywhere and anytime provided it is done in the greater interest of the People and not for promoting special interest and personal agendas.

From ideas to implementation, building on our foundation

Mitsy J. Ellis-Simpson

This month symbolises a proud moment, for me, witnessing the conviction of the people of our beloved Virgin Islands (VI). Not so much because I am for, or against, a march for our economic freedom, but because I see our people rising with conviction at a time that tests our strength as a nation.
