"It seems to me, that this all-pervasive Neo-Colonial mentality that the leaders of CARICOM countries with remnant existing pre-Colombian
indigenous populations - has not diminished in any way. It is sad, but more important it is ILLEGAL under International Human Rights Law - which
many leaders of my generation are fully cognizant of.
Again, I am issuing a open WARNING to the coterie of CRIMINALS and political pimps who are as yet - still being allowed by our kindness to govern
our affairs.....that our patience with your IGNORANCE is running out. I am telling you plain and simple, remember that YOU have powerful covetous
neighbors whom WE can turn to if we deem it necessary to end your parasitic dominion over OUR lives and over OUR lands - in the only course of
action you leave left for us to take.
This is your LAST chance, you either deal with us as friends and equals and treat us with dignity and respect....or we WILL treat YOU as enemies
and tyrants and cripple your economies by turning your over-extended political boundaries into a battlefield, oh and don't expect overt
assistance from your former Colonial masters either, we know how to work the International Court of Public Opinion in the 'developed countries'
....and harming poor indigenous freedom fighters is guaranteed to backfire on YOU - no matter what PR spin you try to put on your response by
your weak and vulnerable security apparatus.
You have been forewarned!"
