Submitted by the Mahogany Coconut Group We join with all those expressing sympathy with our brothers and sisters in Dominica, who have been greatly damaged by the Tropical Storm Erika.

In capitalist societies, it is normal to allow poverty to grow and then accuse the most poverty stricken as lazy, indifferent and don’t care-ish. We then hear cries for the church and communities to become involved and question the rights of economically challenged women to ha…
