IMPORTANT UPDATE – Location Change!

Hail Brethren and Sistren

It has been confirmed that the Healing of the Nation will be relocated to ISRAEL LOVELL FOUNDATION, My Lord’s Hill, St. Michael. For those of us concerned as to why for the venue change, let it be known that the Royal Barbados Police Force has denied permission to have the event in the public space at Jubilee Gardens.

Acting in compliance with the last-minute decision of the RBPF, the event will not be held at Jubilee Gardens. However, the Healing of the Nation persists @ ISRAEL LOVELL FOUNDATION, My Lord’s Hill, St. Michael…

    And what will happen after ???
    How will the Nation be healed?

  2. Donald Duck Esq,

    We have adopted a fete mentality in this country. If you want to launch a product you have a fete. If the government wants to launch a new policy like the government’s new youth forum you have a fete. If you want to heal the nation you have a fete.

    No one however seems to have a noise pollution policy. Maybe it is because you can’t have a fete to introduce such a policy.

    rasta man, do you have a better idea, rather than being so cynical?
