NO NEPOTISM … NO PEACE?
Arubans protest on “One Happy Island” against the Nelson Oduber, MEP Cabinet. If Arubans can understand the unfair practice of nepotism against their own, maybe they can now imagine that same unfair treatment to those who are not citizens of Aruba.
Most important aim was to tell the Dutch delegation of the fraction-leaders that not everything is fine on the island. With texts like ‘Netherlands, please help us and set us free’ and ‘Cabinet Oduber, synonym for nepotism’
If Arubans feel that they are the unfair victims of the “Oduber Cabinet” that they feel is synonymous with nepotism, imagine what happens when that same favoritism is used in the investigation of a missing person not from Aruba. It cuts both ways. If one believes that nepotism is rampant in the present government in Aruba, then you must also believe that the same preferential treatment was used in the Natalee Holloway investigation. Its the protection and preferential treatment of all those with ties to the“Oduber Cabinet.” There is no difference.
Amigoe; October 26, 2007: Protest in front of Parliament
ORANJESTAD – About 100 people protested against the government’s policy in front of the parliament building yesterday. Most important aim was to tell the Dutch delegation of the fraction-leaders that not everything is fine on the island. With texts like ‘Netherlands, please help us and set us free’ and ‘Cabinet Oduber, synonym for nepotism’, the protesters ask among others attention for the debt-problem of Aruba, the increased government expenses, the increased inflation due to the sales tax bbo, and the lack of a dialogue between government and social organizations. They handed a total of four manifests to the Dutch fraction-leaders. The protest was initiated by the political opposition party AVP.
