"Men lie, women lie, numbers do not lie."- Jay Z

Condolences to all we have lost over the last few weeks/months.

Unfortunately, no country is alone in the present health crisis.

So much trouble

Around the region, multiple countries are now experiencing extreme covid crises.

  • Antigua

  • Bahamas

  • Belize

  • Bermuda

  • Cuba

  • Dominica

  • Grenada

  • Guyana

  • Guadeloupe

  • Jamaica

  • Martinique

  • St Kitts and Nevis

  • St Lucia

  • St Vincent

  • Virgin Islands

A common trend is that businesses are shut, schools are closed, hospitals are full, and, unfortunately, high death rates.

Another common trend is that in each of these countries, there have been organised protests against government covid measures.

In St Vincent and the Grenadines, an anti-vaccination protest against the government turned violent.

One of the protesters took it upon themselves to throw a brick that hit Prime Minister Ralph E. Gonsalves in the head.

During the same week, there were similar anti-vaccination protests in both Antigua and Barbados.


Somewhere along the line, we have to acknowledge that those that have waged war against vaccination, and other mitigation measures over the last year, are partially responsible for the dire crisis our region now face.

We know who they are.

The one's creating and sending around conspiracy theories via WhatsApp Voice notes and the like.

The same ones constantly forward items with non-scientific evidence to everyone that they know.

More directly, the ones who have weaponised people's hesitancy in order to attempt to damage or destroy the relationship between elected officials and the populace.

Let's be clear.

There is a direct correlation between protests against covid protocols, low vaccination rates, and subsequent high infection rates.

After all, one of the goals of the misinformation and protests is to make people distrust the health officials and stop them from getting immunised.

Unfortunately, for many persons, they have brought into the propaganda.

It is one thing not to like a particular party or sitting government.

That is par for the course.

However, it is a whole different ball game when you gamble people's livelihoods and lives as political warfare.

The net result is the unfortunate and unnecessary deaths of our loved ones.

Ask yourselves this, is their hatred of a government or particular leadership really worth anyone's lives?

    Very well put. Many within the anti-vax movement may think they are 'independent' thinkers but really need to start questioning who is feeding them the information they use to sow discord. They are serving a purpose as useful fools for those who thrive on the chaos and uncertainty that misinformation brings and seek to attack the pillars of a functioning democratic society.

    Well spoken, well written, you have made the perfect case against the pretenders that say the hate the Vaxine when they have their own personal agenda and trying to get others to go along,. Its themselves and the government that they really dont like and trying to blame the vaxine for their ill, confusion, malicious, irresponsible behaviour.

    Mr. Thomas C. Famous, what you have said in your posted delivery is true to all that seek truth.
    One of the things most of the people of this world, including ours, need to know is that lies are not secrets.
    When a person at a lie, God knows, Satan knows, because he is the plan master of all lies, and the person that say tell the lie knows. So how can it be a secret when in fact God can reveal it, Satan will spread it, and the one one the utters it may most likely repat

    Until we stop seeing through the lens of our oppressors we will remain slaves.
