Are the Youth Voices Under Siege? Mama Helen’s Children Cries.

“Old age and treachery will always beat youth and exuberance.”

David Mamet

I watched and listened with utter disgust, while my brain endured immense pressure. It was trying to digest the garbage uttered by Mr Peter Josie!!!

Fortunately, my brain is programmed not to eat any rubbish from a garbage bin.

Dog Eating from a Garbage Bin!

Why would a grown man in his twilight years attack the YOUTH!

“Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die.”

Herbert Hoover

Alens Plante, President of the Student Council, St. Mary’s College, Vice President of the Saint Lucia National Students Council is known for vociferously speaking to the issues. On countless occasions, the Youth have been asked to take an active role in the affairs of the country.


Isn’t it??

What happens when they do voice their opinion? The hungry wolves mercilessly attack them.

The mandate of the National Student Council is to provide quality representation for students in all corners of Saint Lucia thus enabling them to be leaders in their schools and communities.

It is the students’ democratic right to challenge policymakers of the land when they fail to heed the cries of the youth. They should be able to do so without fear or favor!!!

In recent times one of their loudest cries was for the closure of face-to-face learning at ALL Schools. The Council found that it was unsafe for students attending classes given the spike in the Covid-19 cases. Students were told to stay home because their lives mattered. Today, Thursday January 28th, 2021 our Covid-19 cases stands at 1029.


Let’s get back to Mr. Alens Plante! Mr. Peter Josie, allow me to elucidate your fogged brain cell. Mr. Plante is not a flight by night, he is passionate about his country and politics. Who made you God to judge him and infringe on his freedom of association? You used your tongue loosely to describe the young man. Did anyone prevent you from wearing a suit and a bowtie in your younger days? Are you jealous that he is young and has a bright future ahead of him?

It is a bitter pill to swallow when one’s dream NEVER came to fruition. Mr. Plante loves the youth and has represented them in the Students House of Parliament with dignity and pride: something you would never know in your lifetime.

I take personal umbrage with your recent attacks on the young man and the youth of St.Lucia.

Alens Plante’s Response

The time has come for you to apologize to Mr Plante and the Youth.

Disgusted Much!!!!
