These are not problems that can be solved overnight. These are problems that have been simmering and building in intensity below the surface for many years, which have culminated in what we are witnessing today.

The reality is, this will not lead to any meaningful change and will ultimately do more harm to our country than good.

It is easy to pass judgement on either side when we don’t know the whole truth and it is for this reason, the Patriotic Front without hate, malice, discrimination or any political agenda, calls upon the government of the day to address these issues as a matter of urgency.

We also humbly ask the leaders of all other political parties to not use this social unrest as a political football or blame game.

These are sensitive issues that can only be resolved with decisive short and long term plans which must be formulated with the input of the residents who feel personally affected, the business community and those with the power to effect the change.

We cannot keep doing the same thing over and over and expect different results. Where there is a genuine will, there is a way.
