Smelta Karavan launches this Friday!
VENUE: Outside E.M.A/ OVAL
THE SMELTA KARAVAN mobile community bus makes its first public appearance at 11:30 a.m.
This is also the FINAL day of a 40-day fast dedicated to this movement of increasing awareness and involvement...
People we did not all know were making sacrifices with THE BIG
PICTURE in mind.
Someone was walking our talk.
There is at least some little something we each can do to say thank
you, I'm in it too!
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP?
-Come on down.
-Tell a friend to come on down
-Call the your favorite local newspaper/ TV/ radio station and tell
them to come on down. Call twice.
- Just tell friends and family any way, even if you can't come. Spread
the word, "Have you heard....?"
- fwd emails you receive to those who share your interest
- risk sharing with those who don't
- share emails on the issue with T&T people living abroad
- I don't know, what CAN YOU DO? - DO IT!
T&T IS NOT FOR SALE!
I am going because :
The EMA is as good a place as any to enjoy important conversations
about the things I care about with those who share my concerns.
Legally, there is no local, regional or international precedent about
If we want T&T green we have to attend its garden our selves!
The base of the pyramid must inform the head.
BIG UP TO:
Wayne Kublalsingh, Rosanna Farmer, Beena Baggan and friends who have

Of Wayne, Rosanna says:
"He has been the mast while the rest of us have flapped about sometimes
wildly in the breeze,
but mostly catching the wind and moving this ship forward……however
even the strongest of masts
can break. Knowing all that he has done in the past few months I ask
you to give all that you got...."
