Break the chain of endemic ruthless exploitation

On Friday 27 of October 2017, at the 38th Independence parade of St Vincent and the Grenadines, in Victoria Park, Kingstown, Warrant Officer Ivan O’Neal BSc (hons), MSc, MBA and Kadmiel McFee executed a peaceful protest.

It was a very strong demand and clear message to ruthless Taiwan and the ruthless white migrants of Mustique and Canouan: enough is enough! Taiwan and the white migrants of Mustique and Canouan must pay tax and customs duty or go home.

In SVG, we need to break the chain of endemic ruthless exploitation as it is choking SVG’s economy to death. These parasites need to pay up or go home.

This chain of endemic ruthless exploitation by the parasites is causing high rates of unemployment and widespread poverty and hunger. Many families in SVG are without mains water and electricity and are unable to feed their family adequately.

Taiwan and the white migrants of Mustique and Canouan come to SVG with their proposals for development and are allowed by the ULP regime to abuse our country. Taiwan uses our fish licence and the white migrants get to buy large acres of land at a price much lower than market value.

The government sells crown lands to white migrants and SVG’s indigenous people are being pushed out of their country of birth. The white migrants go on to build exclusive enclaves for foreigners.

Over the decades, Taiwan and the white migrants of Mustique and Canouan have been allowed to get away with not paying billions of dollars in tax and customs exemptions. SVG is in financial crisis and must change direction to create mass employment and revenue on a large scale.

Taiwan and the white migrants of Mustique and Canouan are obstacles to development in SVG and perpetuate poverty in our country. The paltry donations from Taiwan and the white migrants of Mustique and Canouan are a slap in the face to our country, because they avoid paying hundreds of millions of dollars of tax annually.

A future without poverty for our children and grandchildren depends upon a strong economy based on exported goods and services. We can never achieve that if the parasites Taiwan and the white migrants of Mustique and Canouan stay in our country and do not pay tax.

A Green government would cut ties with Taiwan and create ties with China and deport the white migrants of Mustique and Canouan if they did not pay tax.

A Green government would build factories to produce agro-products, such as eddoes, dasheen, tea, fruit juice, baby food from breadfruit and canned callaloo for export.

According to Warrant Officer Ivan O’Neal, SVG urgently needs big investment in high-quality education from pre-school to university, including urgent construction of a science and technology university. A university education will equip our young people to get high-paid jobs and / or become entrepreneurs and start their own business.

We must break the chain of endemic ruthless exploitation as it is choking SVG’s economy to death. The parasites - Taiwan and the white migrants of Mustique and Canouan - need to pay tax or go home.
