Arima Council issues warm Emancipation Day greetings

Mayor Lisa Morris Julian and the Arima Borough Council is extending Emancipation Day greetings to members of the public.

In a statement, the Council says it cherishes the definition of the word ‘Emancipation’ which speaks to “the power or right to freely act, speak, or think.” 

The Council recalls that all of T&T’s leaders have attempted to use their power wisely in an effort to divert from the course of oppressive rulership as set by the previous slave masters. 

Despite current challenges, the Council encourages the nation to be proud of the country’s development which, it says, is impressive.  

The Arima Borough Council says it will spend the earlier part of Wednesday in thanksgiving at the traditional cannon blast and smoke ceremony of the Santa Rosa First Peoples Community before it heads out to Emancipation celebrations.
