Why Are We Giving Away Trinidad & Tobago?
Posted: Monday, February 25, 2008

EDITOR: It has long been known, that our greatest resources have been given to big business or prominent men from all over the world, especially the United States. However, this didn't hit home until I was looking up Oil Fields to see who own them. And, under the United States I found Tobago listed as "In Development." It is amazing to see and hear of corrupt people at home, but I am disgusted by these people and can't hold back any longer. Our natural resources belong to the people of Trinidad and Tobago, and not to outsiders. Why should the people of Trinidad & Tobago get the smaller percentage?

I understand our government are greedy and have no backbone, but for the love of people, STOP SELLING OUT TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO. I challenge the news to seek & give the people a truthful report on the natural resource industries in Trinidad and Tobago, and let the world know who really owns them, and what percentage goes back to the people. My God! You greedy people, don't you know you cannot take the money and power when you die? Please do for other people, so we can help move the human race and Trinidad & Tobago in the right direction. Thanks.

I just needed to vent. I know the majority of powerful businesses (such as news media) are often owned by the same rich powerful people, who manipulate people for power and resources. So, I must try and accept that no one will really look out for the true interest of humanity, especially my people. I know if you do, the powers who determine what is printed or not will make the final decision. So, this is just a Trini, who is living abroad just vexed about how our land is just given away.
