        Because they used our forefathers free labour to build up white Buckingham Palace. You know, we can't forget what they did to our forefathers. If we forget, they will do it again. I think they are planning to do it again, but our local people say, they going to buss up their mouth and lick out their teeths first, then they are going to do them half of what they did to our people. Tell all the local people to watch them white people, okay. MK said, they are the children of Satana. Them is copycats.

    On the whole EL should not have any tramp on the main road to the airport causing the traveling public to be inconvenicenced. Time to start thinking outside the box and have one big festival. Everything have become too political. That shows that even the politicians are note emancipated. We take so much from other places but have not learned how to conduct festival. Festival should be based on culture..

      If it should be based culturally then it should take place where the first festival took place. Guess where that is

    Until our culture was put in the hands of a foreign minded individual these things were never an issue. RESPECT OUR CULTURE OR LEAVE.

    Jouvey has a meaning, it's a street celebration of dance and fun to celebrate our freedom.. ...East End needs to consider having their street celebration starting from the old Festival Ground come across and down Greenland road up by the police station repeat that route, end up in the New village..Leave the traffic to flow freely... People will complain, it's only 3 hrs once a year,, The country belongs to all a we...I don't understand why people get mad when other people are enjoying themselves been happy and celebrating something of great importance "our freedom" if some don't like the way we celebrate, it's up to them to celebrate their way and don't try to stop us..For those who fight not only should they be arrested but the court should band them from public social gathering involving music and dancing for two yrs... Get serious.
