Food crops bulldozed

Food crops bulldozed
By CHARLENE BHARATT Friday, May 9 2008

A TRACTOR yesterday bulldozed five acres of agricultural land in Spring Village, Valsayn destroying fields of produce including ochro, pepper, dasheen bush and coconuts, leaving farmers very upset since the produce was ripe for harvest.

The angry farmers told this reporter that when they asked the driver of the tractor on whose instruction he was acting, to destroy the crops, he (the driver) said he was authorised by the Housing Development Corporation (HDC).

However, several efforts by Newsday to verify this with HDC yesterday proved futile with several calls to the corporation’s corporate communications department, going unanswered.

The farmers said that in the midst of spiralling food prices and a public plea by Consumer and Legal Affairs Minister Peter Taylor for increased local farming to reduce food costs, they cannot understand why anyone would want to destroy their gardens. The farmers added that for the past few years, they have applied for regularised land tenures but this has not been done. They are appealing to Agriculture Minister Arnold Piggott to intervene on their behalf and have them regularised so they could legitimately plant their crops on State lands.

According to brothers Vijay and Sonnylal Jagdeo, who have earned their living from working the land for the past 16 years, workers claiming to be contracted by the HDC were instructed to clear the land. Vijay said the destruction of the gardens came without warning and the five farmers were left with no choice but to watch their only source of income being destroyed. “I begged them to at least leave something behind...but they just kept going,” Vijay said.

“Government talking about agriculture but they are doing something else and now with this (the gardens) gone, we do not know where to turn. We do not know what to do,” Sonnylal cried.

National Food Crop Farmers Association’s Education and Research Officer Norris Deonarine, who represented the farmers, called on the Agriculture Ministry to give priority to regularisation of land tenures to enable farmers to take control of their land and develop it efficiently to ensure ample local food crop production.

Stupid niggas again.

The entire world is discussing the impending food crisis.

Here in Niggadad, they levelling crops left, right and centre. Niggas doh plant nutten, so to destroy ah food crop doh mean ah thing to them.

niggs are accoustomed to eating each other just look at somalia and zimbabwe.

not much is needed to grow lizards.

so while the rest of the population wants plants to eat.

the niggs can comfortably survive on a butterfly and some tree bark.

dan,
yes we eat each other in somalia and zimbabwe. and lizards & butterflies and tree bark. Those things are tasty. yum yum....

At the end of saying all that, what does it do for you? What comes to mind is "recalcitrant minority". but unlike the definition that eric williams meant, this phrase goes across all races. it represents, the niggas that have the country in a spiral, the INDs that corrupt and racist all the other nasty people out there.

At the end of the day, whether you and the others change from your ways, T&T don't need allyuh. we could put allyuh on a ship (racists, thieves, murders etc) and drop allyuh off at allyuh 'mother lands': africa & india.

Because just like there are niggas out there that contribute to T&T, there are Indians that make positive contributions. No need for coolies like yuhself.

Choice is yours.

THUG LIFE!!!

Oh well said! .. At the end of the day there are many decent Indian and Africans that make T & T the beautiful nation that it is... a little crime ridden but then again, tell me a country in the world that is not dealing with escalating crime numbers. I am of African decent and was born and raise in the country side of T&T, and trust me there are some nice Indian people who see themselves as Trinidadian people and not waiting for no mother ship to take them home to India so they could be treated lower than untouchables!

r'fari said...

Can someone please tell what is the difference between a coolie and an indian and also the difference between a nigga and a negro? How do you classify these people?

My programmer is trying to convince me to move
to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

not talk about such issues. To the next! Cheers!!

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
actually something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of
your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
