Freedom under threat again

Dear Editor,

Re: Former Cabinet Minister calls 

The end of our freedom came when we were taken over by the white mans world of commerce.

First, they came in and introduce to us their new found God of Christianity when in fact it was the same God we once knew in our own natural way of living and how nature works, but they repackaged it in a way that they now personified them as real characters. 

Then they took over and introduced us to their new way of governing in a form of government. (politics) and subjected us to their Queen of England Statute of Westminter type of govt. which we pay homage to under the Commonwealth of nations. 

The granting of our so called freedom back in a form of independence after laying the “system” of infrastructure in place with their court system and the law which is based on Ecclesiastical and Canon Law that is the law Commerce or Banking law is nothing more than a mockery to the freedom of the people using double talk and innuendo to confuse the public. 

However, our forefathers were wise enough to create a lock and key safety net in 1965 in our Constitution to safeguard the alienation of our customary land. 

But now it is threatened once again by the very people that exploited us in the first place.
