WE ARE WIDE AWAKE; A REPLY TO JOMO THOMAS

Dear Jomo,

We are wide awake. I am surely not sleepwalking anywhere. Actually, we might be marching to a Vincy Promised Land. I believe in the potential of my generation.

It is important for you to not be hung up in what you obviously consider to be the halcyon days. Naturally, we are still guided by the Flambeau and the progressive organisations of the past. We are of course quite happy to stand on the shoulders of giants.

If we are to ever wonder about what got in to the heads of those who went before, it would also be an indictment on you. I defy you on the suggestion that we currently exist in a pervasive state of political and ideological backwardness. I completely reject your notion that everything is in reverse from political and ideological standpoints.

Be honest, despite there being some detractors, there is greater support for reparations and republicanism today than at any time in the past. This is due in part to work done by you and the Prime Minister as well as the recent example of Barbados. We need to stay on a constructive course.

The future looks bright to me. I am confident that we will get our reparations. Time longer than twine. I feel sure that SVG will become a Republic, and perhaps sooner than you think. I am optimistic about the prospects for the Caribbean Court of Justice and addressing the colonial legacy of Underdevelopment in its entirety in a far reaching way.

By the way, I am not sure if you have been fair or correct in some of your commentary and I recognised in your article some distasteful and illogical remarks. I do not propose to address every single point.

Have faith Jomo. Do not count SVG out.

Regards,

Luke.
