What Happens Next

Reactions to the JLP lead demonstrations help on Tuesday September 6, 2005 across Jamaica have been varied. There as been expressions of anger, frustration and just plain ‘fedup’.
People have expressed great anger at the JLP administration, anger at the illiterate Jamaicans whose only mission was to destroy and disrupt. Anger at the untimely ness of the protest as the country hosted the Petro Caribe Summit being held in Montego Bay.
Some people have expressed frustration at the situation here in our country and the feeling of helplessness and hopelessness. Irrespective of their party affiliation everyone is feeling the crunch. Yes as a people we need to express our dissatisfaction and voice our opinions; however a protest is not the answer.

Follow up:

Some people were simple glad for the day away from work. Everyone knows that what happened would have happened anyway. Some people are just too ignorant anyway. In fact they feel it’s a wonder things didn’t get worst. Also even if you get rid of the PNP who are you going to vote for, the JLP? Talk bout, ‘swop black dawg if monkey.’
Amid all the discussions, arguments, shouts and grumblings one thing is common. Everyone thinks something needs to be done. The million dollar question is; what?
We seem to be lodged between the devil and the deep blue sea. One of the more popular answers is to migrate. Migrate to where? America has made it very clear that they don’t like blacks. Just look what happened after Hurricane Katrina. The British don’t want us either. Anyway, this is our country and we need to make it work for us. Maybe its time we all stop pointing fingers and put our hearts and heads together to find some solutions.
Nuff Love
