Retro Series – Eric Williams Decrees

“There can be no Mother India for those whose ancestors come from India…There can be no Mother Africa for those of African origin…there is no Mother England and no dual loyalties….there can be no Mother China even if one could agrees to which China is the Mother; and there can be no Mother of Syria or no Mother of Lebanon. A nation, like an individual can have only one Mother. the only Mother we recognize is Mother Trinidad and Tobago and Mother cannot discriminate between her children.”

From the first Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Dr. Eric Williams, and his vision for a young nation 10 years after its independence. – thebookmann
