Friday, April 22, 2005 - St. Lucian's have been urged to turn their energies from complaint to cooperation as a means of mounting a united front against criminal elements on the island.  This plea was sounded by Governor General Her Excellency Dame Pearlette Louisy as she delivered the Thrown Speech of the Fifth Session of the Eighth Parliament, Tuesday April 19th 2005.


The real enemies Dame Pearlette says are the issues which eat away at the moral fabric and social development of any nation, and the country must remain committed to defeating them.


“But surely we are not helpless against these forces.  We have not lost the will to unite as communities to demonstrate our intolerance, our determination, our absolute refusal to be defeated by the criminal elements which would rob us of our liberty, dignity and way of life,” said Dame Pearlette.


Dame Pearlette expressed the need for the public to work with the police in providing the information needed to put away persons who have or continue to commit criminal acts to the detriment of those who abide by the laws of the land.


 “We cannot rejoice at the limited effectiveness of the forces of law and order and not expect ourselves to fall victim.  We cannot stay silent in the night and then make a mighty noise when the sun rises.  As law abiding citizens, we are all custodians of our country.  We are all responsible for the preservation of our way of life,” said the Governor General.
