One of Antigua and Barbuda’s National Heroes has spoken in support of Senator Lennox Weston following remarks made pledging to clamp down on Syrian Dominance in Antigua and Barbuda.
The comments were made when Weston raised the matter of changing the tendering process to stop “the domination of Syrians” in the country which received backlash from members of the Syrian Community.
Regional Analyst Dr. David Hinds also voiced his support for the senator’s comments. He agreed with the focal point of Senator Weston and joined him in advocating for black empowerment.
Sir Viv said that he stands behind Senator Weston and hopes that he not only talks the talk, but actively pushes for black empowerment.
Hinds went on to say that issues like these must be publicly discussed as they have been ignored for too long which has caused the build up of these inequalities.
