The Nation’s Online Editor Carol Martindale looks at What’s Trending today in Barbados.
Barbadians have been described as weak-willed and too afraid to stand up for their rights.
This from Christine Eli, who was at the forefront of the protest action by aggrieved REDjet ticket holders.
She said this was why Barbadians get pushed around so much.
Only four people turned up for the protest action in Independence Square.
This is what some readers said.
Jo-ann B Jordan: “But a protest action between 9 am and 9:30 am on a weekday when people at work earning an honest dollar? Please. That is why we are not going anywhere (sarcastically). That is why Barbados is listed in the top ten countries in the Americas with the highest Human Development Index.”
Rawle Spooner: “It’s curious that not one politician from either political party has commented about this. I know politicians cannot do anything about it, but the silence makes me very curious. Should REDjet not be made to post some kind of bond before service started to prevent something like this from happening. Other countries do it. Guyana did and their people got their money back.”
