Love Antigua, Don't Trash It

Love Antigua, Don't Trash ItAntigua St. John's - The Cedar Valley Neighbourhood Watch has prepared an anti-litter sign and logo to spread the word to as many people as possible: "Love Antigua; Don't Trash it."

The group wants to raise awareness about the chronic problem of littering nationwide.



Numerous efforts have been made over the years by a variety of groups, but the problem continues.

The Cedar Valley group has said, “We cannot give up; we must forge ahead with trying to change this negative behaviour.

In time and with all our efforts, we shall succeed in gaining awareness across the land and hopefully instilling pride in ourselves as citizens and residents.”

" The Cedar Valley Group has said, ' we cannot give up; we must forge a head with trying to change this negative behaviour.'" I'm sorry, but I'm afraid that before we can make any attempt to try to change this negative behavior, we must first try and change the negative behavior of society overlooking and treating the poor people unjustly. For example, if a rich person (usually a white person) is caught using drugs in Europe,Canada, or The USA, he is often times given a warning and sent for treatment in a rehab facility, but if a poor person (usually a black person) is caught with the same, he is 100% of the time sent to prison. People who are treated unfairly by society and are forgotten will definitely feel unhappy and develop low-self esteem. So in order to change that negative behavior we see in them, we must treat them fairly. Then they will feel good about themselves and want to keep their community clean.

the Trash problem

#4 Jumbee Picknee » 2014-01-25 16:42

As I travel around the globe, the problem of trash and its unsightly conditions are more often than not in less fortunate Communities; there are many mitigating circumstances which are the cause for this dilemma; one is Education on "The Value Of..." whether life, property, Community. Individuals of poorer Communities tend to view "trash' and its downside as a part of their life/existence, hence, little is done to change the situation. Mama do it, papa do it, brother do it, so I can do it too, is how some of Our Children, youths and adults are thinking. It wasn't always like this in Our Nation. I remembered the 1960's, 1970's, 1980's, physical poverty was ever present, YET, pride was our motto and not the foolish kind.
The trash problem is an easy one to solve...now Flames, Burning or Red Hot can come in and sing...Clean Up Rubbish...me garne

Great job guys. I am a big supporter for a cleaner Antigua and Barbuda. I truly believe that there should be a city code of standards by law that will educate the public on the standards and fine business and residence that keep outside there properties filthy. Example: the g** in front of your house should be kept cut and garbage free and decent paint on buildings etc. This will include CODE ENFORCEMENT where code officers patrol ticket/fine and report unusual activity.
