By BBN Staff: Chair of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Mia Amor Mottley in an address to the virtual launch of the Pan African Festival TT praised the resiliency of Caribbean people.
“Resilience is most certainly not a newfound trait of ours in the Caribbean…. In fact, while our history may feature many struggles and adversity, we have always prevailed,” Mottley said.
Highlighting some of those struggles as the slave rebellions that precipitated the abolition of slavery, the popular rebellions of the 1930’s, and the Black Power Rebellion of 1970, Mottley pointed out that there were values produced and lessons learnt.
“I can confidently assert that as our Caribbean region faces the many existential challenges that are currently bearing down on us, there shall be no retreat, there shall be no abandonment of our core values. There will be no deviation from the positive mission of transformation that our history has bequeathed to us! And it is up to us to run our leg of the relay,” she stated.
Mottley said that CARICOM would be reaching out “in an extremely determined manner” to the African Continent.
Mottley informed that the COVID-19 crisis had caused the postponement of the inaugural CARICOM/African Union Heads of Government Summit in Nairobi, Kenya, next month.
