Activists Murray and Davis on an education mission

Activists Stokely Murray and David Davis have been sensitising residents and tourists, on the islands south coast, about best health practices amidst the ongoing sewage crisis.

The two along with a group of concerned citizens travelled from Quayside Centre in Rockley, Christ Church, to Lanterns Mall in Hastings, handing out pamphlets entitled In The Event Of A Sewage Overflow.

“A lot of tourists are receptive of the information. They do understand that there is a problem but they are a bit discouraged by the fact that they aren’t hearing anything about it,” Davis told Barbados TODAY while his colleague said Government had dropped the ball in sensitising the public.

“My concern is that not enough has been done to look out for the citizens at this time whilst they are trying to figure out how to solve the problem. The worst thing you can do is lose touch [with] the people and I think persons in the know, that being Government officials . . . they are not . . . keeping in constant contact with the people in the area and Barbadians on a whole, on what is going on and what they can do. They have dropped the ball massively,” Murray said.

One tourist who did not want to be identified told Barbados TODAY she had reservations about visiting the island after the Canadian Government issued a travel advisory on the island. However she visited the island for the 25 time and expressed concern about the foul stench while another frequent Canadian visitor, David Drake was equally concerned.

“Tourism is your bread and butter and it’s ruining your brand,” Drake said.

    What and why do we have politicians , in Barbados politician’s have or show no real concern about the problems in Barbados …
    I think people in Barbados is very scared and frighten , to make open public comments about the problems, they are frighten first of the politicians and friends reporting them to the parties………..
    It seems as long as the 1%ers is okay and the politicians themselves and friends it doesn’t matter, but they rum shop behaviour the world is seeing , the high regards the world had for Barbados is gradually ebbing away………………..
    Bajans might as well gather up bucket , broom and shovel and try cleaning up the ***t themselves, ……….Call Donald Trump…..

    Murray and Davis. B L P connections? The son of Gline Murray a long time council member and working member of the party’s spin machinery, also a foreign service representative appointed by the party while in government. Davis? I wouldn’t bother go into his associations, as they’re widely known.

    These are the young operatives of the opposition. We will soon see the government operatives at work as well. Time and the old tricks has caught up with the aging machinery, so they have turned to the new more youthful machinery.

      And what is wrong with that??…. Both parties are Barbadians and should want the best for the country…B or D… Being too partisan is what causes inertia and damages the image of Barbados…. These times need ppl who see Barbados as a country that need good leadership… Not bench warmers…

    @Lorenzo: You only comment whenever I mention anything about the B L P and their operatives. I don’t hear you when I am criticizing the government. I criticizes both of them because none of them are fit to lead this country in the immediate future.

    It’s an inpregnated fact that Barbadians to quite an extent behave in an argumentative fashion even though an actual even may be going in positive light. Actions speak louder than words and it’s about time serious measures are made to rectify a persistant dayly problem of sewage spillage. Paper is processed with heavy acids process and produce high acidity levels in raw sewage along with fecial matter; commonsence and hygene should be used utmostly by all effected.
