Q: Archbishop J, is this really happening in Trinidad and Tobago?
On Thursday (June 13) night I went to the Oval to walk around. What I saw shocked me. Tragarete Road became the battleground for protesting Trinidadians and the Venezuelans, police and Trini supporters. The scene reminded me of Maximus Dan’s “Order, order; don’t cross the border” (2005). The border was the white line in the road.
On one side there was hate, vitriol and a frenzied mob. They were angry! Their rants I will not repeat. They were not that many but it was frightening, frightening because this is Trinidad and Tobago.
