What if you didn’t know that your protest would make any difference or you knew that it was likely to not?
But what if you felt you were right or the cause just?
I believe that we in The Bahamas have to learn to stand up for what we believe in. We have to learn to make a stand, to draw a line in the sand and say enough! Even if it means we are doing it alone.
This is not easy to do, believe me, when I say “we” I’m including myself.
I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way for us to ensure that our elected officials act in the best interest of The Bahamas and its people is to be constantly watched by groups of people who bring their misdeeds to the public and launch protests in Rawson Square if necessary.
This is the only way. Recent events should make it crystal clear that we can not “trust” politicians. whether that’s the FNM, PLP, NDP, or DNA.
I will vote for one of those parties, but I’m under no illusions. I will take careful note of all their promises and monitor the winning party closely. Then when/if the time comes next term, I will be in Rawson Square… even if it’s by myself!
