King, The Queen Consort, the other members of the Royal Family and the people of the United Kingdom.”

    @smh: No data from out ancestors show slavery was started in Africa, maybe Europe that went thru the brutality of the 500yrs ‘Dark Ages’, 100yr war between France & England plus the 30yr war that took out the Romans. They needed to shackle and enslave other Europeans brothers and sisters captured, even created baby shackles for kids, that they eventually used in Africa during their rampages. It was war. Think for yourself. At the time Africa had everything Europe needed. Not slaves. Only euros and Arabs had slaves, still do. Back then Britain’s parliamentarians salivated how amazed they were of all the stocked stores, great communities, not a beggar nor a thief, people of such moral and calibre.
    What you profess only began when Blacks begun to show interest in Africa in 1960’s white religious ‘institutions’ started flooding society with Euro books on Africa to spread Africans selling Africans as their trump card. Never happened, only Europeans and Arabs sold Africans.

    ME,with due respect to you,you are WRONG.Patrick John was NOT convicted of Treason.He was charged and convicted of conspiracy to overthrow,and sentenced to 12 years.Malcolm Reid was also charged and convicted of conspiracy,he to was sentenced to 12 years.Julian David was also charged and convicted with conspiracy and sentenced to 5 years.At the the judge Satrohan Singh to Patrick John IF he was charged with treason he had no choice but to sentence him to death.This case had to do with OPERATION RED DOG in 1981.Later that year,in December 1981,ex defence forcers tried taking over Police headquarters.Const.Mathias Alexander was shot dead,Const Campbell Esprit was shot in the neck.Const.Joseph C B and Pascal were also shot.Defense forcers,Piper and Benji were shot dead.Five of the other forcers were arrested,charged,convicted and spent 14 years in jail.Go to CID look at the files and get your facts strait…………………..

    Many misguided Dominicans have been trying to justify Roosevelt’s groundless reason for declaring two days of mourning for the passing Queen Elizabeth. How ironic! All this for a lady who ruled over a country that rained down terror and death on millions of our people.

    This specious argument by many misguided adherents of colonialism is we are a member of the Commonwealth. That argument is as hollow as a ghost.

    The Commonwealth is mostly irrelevant today. This grouping is just an attempt by the British to save face. They were reduced from the world’s most powerful country that ruled over one-fifth of the world’s population , to an ordinary member of the world community.

    I have heard many independent, political analysts articulate about the Commonwealth, and I agree. The large, wealthy members are the real beeciaries, while the benefits of poor, tiny members like Dominica are negligible.

    This small minded fellow, Roosevelt, has undoubtedly confirmed by his actions that he is slavishly devoted to and obsessed with foreigners. Here is the irrefutable evidence:
    *his children are U.S. born citizens – Dominica not good enough for them
    *not one day of mourning for Patrick John nor other nationals who have made sterling contributions to Dominica
    *Anthony Haiden, Chinese, Barbadians and other foreigners given contracts to build roads, bridges, public edifices, airport, health centres, trucking, hospitals, etc.

    Conversely, Roosevelt demonizes, brutalizes, victimizes, arrests, pauperises, insults native Dominicans.

    Can any of his surrogates honestly refute any of these facts? Try if you may.

      History is a stubborn chronologer of facts.
      AP (the Associated Press) reported on Oct. 1985, that the former Dominica Prime Minister, Patrick John, was convicted of treason for which he could have been sentenced to death by hanging. Instead he was sent to prison for 12 years. His 1981 plot with white U.S. mercenaries played a major part in this.

    Regardless of our views about the monarchy. For better or for worse we have been linked to the monarchy through our past history.

    Come to think of it we were all British subjects up until our independence on 3rd November 1978. May the Angels welcome the late queen Elizabeth ll into paradise. RIP.

    Sad day for Dominica indeed for a country which was subject to the brutality of colonialism and slavery to be mourning the death of a queen, the remnants of colonial rule, who never denounced her empires forced rule, murderous time in power… yet we never respectfully mourned the loss of our former leader, Patrick Roland John, who took us out of the clutches of colonial rule to political independence. what a travesty, what irony…

    I always empathise with all families when death knocks at their doors. I want to publicly again express my profound condolences to the family of Queen Elizabeth on her demise.

    Also, I have restrained myself from divulging what dwells deep inside of me about the queen.

    Many news outlets have described her as an EXTRAORDINARY person. In my eyes she was extraordinarily stubborn in not apologising for the enslavement of our ancestors. She was extraordinarily heartless for refusing to reimburse us for the free labour given to her country by our forebears.

    For just those two of the many barbaric acts, she was extraordinarily uncaring and despicable for failing even to acknowledge the horrific suffering and pain her leaders and family caused my people.

    “The Government and people of the Commonwealth of Dominica mourn the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II who died on Thursday, September 8, 2022.”
    We know the minuet she died, as a matter of fact I mentioned that the minuet she died where I said the new prime minister perhaps was the last British politician to speak to her!
    Now the issue here is what shall Dominica benefit from two days of morning?
    I suppose to accomplish that Roosevelt have to shut the country down for two days; each time a country is shut down for a holiday the nation loses revenue.
    The nation flag should not be lowed; since she was never head of State, from the day the British forced our nation into Independence after plundering our country for more than four hundred years!
    She was head of State of Canada therefore In Canada, the queen’s death marks the beginning of 10 days of mourning replete with special events, ceremonies and symbolic gestures, here.
    Next thing Roosevelt goes to funeral not…

      My brother, I agree with most of what you said except for that jesus part. When we we have to think of the atrocities and barbaric behaviors of the Europeans, how can they turn around and give us their own to save and deliver us? You seem to be quite knowledgeable but when it comes to that religion part, I don’t understand how you still embrace that. Before our ancestors were stolen, they were a Spiritual people, not believing in a European figure. Even most of the Indigenous people in the world still practice their Spirituality. They don’t call on god and jesus. The say “Great Spirit.” The Europeans gave us a god, jesus and religion and we have embraced that even more than them. Continue to educate yourself my brother. The truth is out there but you must be willing to shake off that religious mindset.

    Slavery has been abolished and colonialism diminished. That should also come with the understanding that Elizabeth is not our master nor we her subjects. We are all equal in the eyes of God it is said and this British monarchy is a constant reminder to humans it is not the case. The white supremacy and the belief by man that they are ordained by the heaven to do what they please with other people’s lives has been the cause of slavery, WW-I and II, division and war in the middle east, Africa, Asia and even Ukraine today. The division we see today btw Pakistan, india, and Bangladesh. These folks lived in relative peace together until the forced breakup by Britain. Dominica today has an individual whose wife claimed he got message directly from heaven, and made himself an emperor. I wish Elizabeth happy journey be it heaven or hell but in my eyes she is just another old white women who seen her time and transition as we all must. We come from nothing and return to nothing.

      Nobody in Dominica or the Caribbean should be morning the death of any so called queen! If she did what is right when she was alive; according to the will of God, and accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord ans savior, she will be rewarded by him, the same like every other human.

Slavery was rampant on the african continent during the heyday of the british empire (and still today) which is where they got most of their slaves from – trading them from leaders of AFRICAN tribes who sold their own people for clothes, weapons etc. And if you doubt that history just look around you today black people still doing the EXACT SAME THING in year of our lord 2022.

        Those academics & others who go about bawling for England & Co to pay reparations for their involvement in the slave trade should also go to Africa to seek reparations from those African countries whose nationals took part in the slave trade.

        Whatever took place on the African continent among themselves should never be compared with the unimaginable brutality perpetrated by the British against over twenty million (20 000 000) innocent Africans. This is like comparing the attacks on Ukraine by Russia to an attack by one gunman on family birthday party. It’s just alarmingly preposterous.

        The horrific crimes committed against so many millions of Africans during slavery were on a scale that even boggles the human imagination.

        It should be a crime against humanity to even attempt to justify the British enslavement of Africans to the skirmishes that took place on the African continent. Sick, insane, upsetting, unjustifiable comparison!!!!!

        @SMH, that is coming from your European ancestors, and what they taught me too. That’s not what’s coming from my ancestors who dug up tremendous amount of truths that expose and correct the distortions that make Chatel slavery into an African thing when it was not. It was practiced/perfected in Europe from their days of feudalism, wholescale slavery. What they had in Africa was indentured servitude. For payment of fines, then freed when time completed, prisoners of war etc. Some married and even became kings. Never chatel slavery. Your ancestors have flooded our homes, neighborhoods, libraries, colleges with books, publications on Africa and its people in order to control the narrative and parternalize their way to heaven using your missionaries.
        Africans never sold Africans. It was war. Declared war during European conquest that netted millions of innocent civilians, no joking naked Africans stuff, it was always military might. Superior weapons won and control the narrative

        No, slavery was not started by African folks. That’s a lie that’s what they teach in the Christian churches to distort the role of of the Vatican.

      My brother continue to stand for and proclaim the truth. You see when you know what has happened and what’s happening, no one can stand before you and spew nonsense. We must be educated in order to break the chains of oppression white supremacy and division and if not, the oppression and division that they have deliberately sown among us will continue to prevail. Our story is available for all of us who want to be educated.

    “In a show of appreciation and respect for the life and contribution of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Dominica will observe two days of national mourning on Monday, September 12 and Tuesday, September 13, 2022.”

    Respect is commendable of course but Roosevelt Skerrit is not our head of state and it would have been more appropriate for the announcement and condolences In this case to be made by our President, Charles Savarin.

      Neither Roosevelt nor Charles Savarin should even think of declaring two days of mourning who holds no real relevance to the country at this time. When the ‘Father’ of modern day Dominica died, Patrick John, Roosevelt stubbornly refused to even fly the national flag at ha!f staff for a lengthy period of time.

      Dominica is not even a constitutional monarchy with Queen E!izabeth as Head of State. Why this over-reactioin? It’s all about grabbing headlines for the next cycle of news.

      Roosevelt cannot make the headline news with anything substantially positive about Dominica, so he inevitably resorts to this disingenuous maneuvering.

He is yet to update us on circumstances surrounding the killing Keyan or the Keneesha stalemate but here he goes pushing the already moomoo, invaluable president further into the gabage bin simply for self gratification.

    It’s one thing send condolences, which I am totally supportive of, but 2 days of national mourning is a bit much.

      “Two days of NATIONAL mourning? Why??”
      Zandoli, the reason is simple; Roosevelt simply want to be in things, the bastard or whosoever suggest lowering our nations flag is out of order!
      We are no longer a colony of England, indeed we remain among the commonwealth of nations, from which there is nothing to benefit; during the colonization of our country, our Caribbean, and Dominica forefathers suffered slavery, treated like beast of burdens for hundreds of years.

      The British plundered the wealth of our country, bleed the ground dry, and when there was nothing left, they simply cut Dominica loose with a messily fifty million dollars.
      Even in the 1970 this same so called King Charles suggest the British return all Black people to their country of origin.
      I am sure by now you heard of the “Windrush generation in England.”
      The Windrush generation refers to the immigrants who were invited to the UK between 1948 and 1971 from Caribbean countries such as Jamaica, Trinidad and

        Con:
        So, here is a brief regarding our people they regard as Windrush people.
        The Windrush generation migrants arrived in Britain legally. Until a new immigration law came into force in 1973, Commonwealth citizens and their children had the automatic right to live and work in the UK.
        Many did so, without any need for additional documentation.
        In late 2017, however, a raft of cases were reported in which individuals who had arrived in the UK from Commonwealth countries before 1973, and sometimes their descendants, were struggling to prove their citizenship status under tough new immigration laws billed as a “hostile environment” policy.
        Many don’t have the required documentation because they had never been required to have it before. Some said they had been refused medical care, denied housing and deported or threatened with deportation.
        So, if Roosevelt knew half of what is happening he would not have lowered our flag!

      This proves what many Dominicans have been saying. Roosevelt has a proclivity to elevate foreigners and denigrate his fellow natives. Look how he treated Patrick John!

      The man is an ENEMY of the STATE.

        Indeed Roosevelt is an enemy of the people of Dominica. Somewhere in the future, the people of Dominica will have to set-up a special military tribunal to prosecute Roosevelt for his crimes treason and corruption against the nation.

        As many passports that man sold to foreign criminals constitute high treason; as result there are more foreign born citizens than the native born Dominicans.
        When one sells a nation in that way it constitute high treason!
