District meetings on recovery plan start Wednesday

After a series of public consultations with stakeholders from various industries about the proposed recovery plan for the British Virgin Islands, government is now localizing meetings at the district level.

District meetings will kick off on Wednesday (January 24) at Althea Scatliffe Primary School for residents of the Fourth Electoral District.

The meeting will run from 5pm to 7pm.

Meetings will then move to the Ninth Electoral District at the Catholic Community Centre at the Valley on Virgin Gorda. That meeting will also start at 5pm.

Other district meetings are yet to be announced.

“The district meetings will give people an opportunity to discuss and share ideas and recommendations in shaping the new British Virgin Islands stronger, smarter, greener and better,” said Chairman of the Disaster Recovery Coordination Committee, Brodrick Penn.

    The people’s basic needs are food clothing & shelter. That must come first.

    Self Reliance Self Determination & Self Awareness must be the objective.

    We need the wells restored. We need a major investment in fishing & agriculture. We need to break the colonial bonds that have the government’s minds shackled and unable to see.

    We need the miseducation of locals to stop and they need to learn who they are and from where they came. So that they can navigate these relations with full arsenal of our history so that it is not repeated.

    Forward ever.

    ???????????? for once NDP seems to be listening to the electorate. A number of bloggers have been beating the drums for District meetings. And voila here they are. Though they had to be hog tied and pulled screaming, they relented. You can tell that it was not an in the original plan, for it seems like the schedule is still being fleshed out. They are starting with D-4, D-9…………..

    Anybody who hates my comment about self determination is a slave or an oppressor.

    The gov hasn’t even included their backbenchers in their plans, and they have accepted it, so what purpose are they for the people?

    The people were left without a gov response in the most needy of times. A gov in need is a gov indeed.

    We are all Afrikan people the colonial nationalities don’t matter…we demand the basic necessities of life for all of us…if not blood will flow in time.

    Not accepting this truth shows that from 1492-present you who dislike would have been and are enemies to your race to your country & your community. You would have sided with Hitler as you chose his philosophy of inequality. Which is why you are confused about your culture.
