|Bishops propose mediation – Oct 7
As the hunger strike wages war on the body of Dr. Wayne Kublalsingh, so do the anxiety levels and causes for concern rise across the nation. The various media reports indicate mixed views but the tone reflects a wounded Trini spirit, hopefully not fatally. As we continue to appeal on humanitarian grounds for a meeting of minds on the issues, which now command international attention, we appeal to that which is noble, sensitive and powerful among us.
We propose an urgent process of mediation and we have identified two eminently qualified and respectable citizens, who are willing to facilitate the process, for the greater good of all. As we urged in our first statement, we invite both sides in this conflict to take two steps towards each other by entering the open door to this mediation process. The mediation process can be started immediately, once both agree.
Come, let us reason together. The call to prayer remains in effect, as we seek God’s good and gracious will for us all as a nation. May God bless our nation.
