The Amazing Verna St. Rose Greaves.

T&T has many problems but one good thing was that it had the most incredible Minister of Gender, Youth and Child development.  Verna St. Rose Greaves is a social activist and a fighter of much ferocity who amazingly ended up as that Minister.  Suddenly the talk became about human rights for all people and she was the champion of that fight. Last Friday she was removed from Cabinet for political reasons and my heart broke. She is the most wonderful compassionate person I know and she is a friend.  If the world were ending I would want to call Auntie Verna.

Here is Part one of my interview with her today.

Amazing Debate on Same Sex Issues In the Senate of T&T Tonight.

A groundbreaking debate on a clause of the Children Bill during committee stage in the Senate this evening ( ongoing) involving a clause that includes buggery. Anand repeated that a national debate needs to be undertaken – the Independent Senators weren’t taking that.

Paraphrase :

On the suggestion that the AG made that changing the clause would result in decriminalizing same sex acts – a senator said – well maybe that is why we should remove it?

Female Senator – so if a young heterosexual couple have sex and the girl gets pregnant that is okay but if a same sex couple do they have to go to YTC or Womens Prison?

Sen. Balgobin: We cannot base new legislation based on backward laws – ” the time to turn the tide is now”

The Independent Senators ( and others- I was listening on the car radio) were so united on the issue they called for division ( vote) so their objections would be noted. The AG eventually asked that the Opposition meet and discuss their position on the issue and that the clause in question be deferred. This means another animated round of discussion is ahead.

Very proud of the Independent Senators right now.

Independent Senator Rolph Balgobin. ( after midnight in the Senate)

Wael Ghonim – a man who offers his life for his people.

The man who has become one of the most compelling faces of the Egyptian revolution is a fascinating figure.He doesn’t want to be viewed as a hero but his story is compelling. I have been following him on Twitter but didn’t know the story of his life.

Looking at Wikipedia I see that he really is a patriot who loves his country.

Ghonim persuaded Google to allow him to return to Egypt, citing a “personal problem”.[12] After his arrival, he disappeared on 27 January 2011 during thenationwide unrest in Egypt. His family told Al-Arabiya and other international media that he was missing. Google also issued a statement confirming the disappearance. Many bloggers like Chris DiBona and Habib Haddad campaigned in an attempt to identify his whereabouts. On 5 February 2011, Mostafa Alnagar, a major Egyptian opposition figure, reported Wael Ghonim as alive and detained by the authorities and to be released ‘within hours’.[13] On 6 February 2011,Amnesty International demanded that the Egyptian authorities disclose where Ghonim was and to release him.[14]
