CALL ON JAMES MITCHELL TO APOLOGISE TO VINCENTIANS AND VOLUNTARILY SURRENDER HIS KNIGHTHOOD
“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.” -------------------------------------------------------------------------- ONLINE PROTEST AGAINST SON MITCHELL ONLINE PROTEST AGAINST SON MITCHELL, FOUNDER AND OWNER OF THE NATIONAL DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING (NDP). REGARDLESS OF YOUR POLITICAL PERSUASION, LET US SEND A LOUD MESSAGE TO SON MITCHELL. We are calling for for a National Day of Protest in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) against Son Mitchell, for his years of corruption and mismanagement of the economy, as well as his ongoing insults on the people of SVG. We believe the protest should be held in every constituency on the Mainland of SVG, in the early afternoon, culminating with a Mass Protest Rally in Capital Kingstown. We suggest the Day of Protest should also serve to launch a month-long "Petition Signing" to call on Her Majesty the Queen to revoke Mitchell's Knighthood, failing his voluntary surrender of his same. Enough of Son Mitchell's arrogance and contempt for Vincentians. It is high time Mitchell is called upon to account for (among others): - The Ottley Hall fiasco - The Union Island Marina Project - The "white elephant" airport in Bequia - The closing and cheap sale of the Georgetown Sugar Factory - The rum distillery - The Colonial Homes Scandal - The Diamond Dairy Scandal The constant insults hurled at women, public servants and other Vincentians, include: * At a Youth Rally attended by hundreds of young girls, the then Prime Minister is reported to have advised: "Bat but don't score" * At an NDP Nomination Meeting in Calliaqua: "“Who woman goes into politics when she is between twenty-eight and forty?” She better lucky if she has her children before she getting in. How is she going to look after family and children and all those kinds of thing?” * "...You can't find a virgin or wise man in St. Vincent..." * Civil servants, nurses, police officers and teachers. were "STUPID" to vote us out of office..." * "...In 1984 there was a water problem and teachers, police officers and civil servants used to go to work without bathing..." This online protest is intended to mobilise Vincentian relatives and friends at home and in the Diaspora, to hold Mitchell accountable for his actions.
