Hate speech has no place in Trinidad and Tobago. So says UNC Public Relations Officer Anita Haynes. She says the party has noted certain statements currently circulating on social media which refer to citizens, in this case, residents of Tobago, in a derogatory manner.
“The UNC strongly condemns all forms of hate speech, which can only cause division in our society,” she said. “What is needed now is for all citizens to come together and work together to build a brighter future for our country.”
“Over the last few days, we have seen an increasing number of hateful comments which have no place in our twin island republic,” Senator Haynes stated.
“We can only move forward as a nation if we are united,” she added.
“Let us respect each other, show compassion to our fellow citizens, and unite so that we can effect positive change in our nation,” Senator Haynes said.
