    We wish that we could have been on Saba for this. It’s certainly no surprise that Father Zibi and Island Governor Johnson spoke eloquently. They always do!

  • From René Caderius van Veen on Saba attends Kingdom workshop on EU funding

    The EU published:
    “The Commission’s renewed Strategy for the EU’s outermost regions puts people first and unlocks their potential
    The EU outermost regions – Guadeloupe, French Guiana, Martinique, Mayotte, Réunion and Saint-Martin (France), the Azores and Madeira (Portugal) and the Canary Islands (Spain) – are nine EU regions located in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, in the Caribbean basin and in South America.”

    Again: Not for the Dutch Caribbean???!!!
    I started lobbying for changes in the relation between the EU and the Dutch Caribbean 12 years ago but the Dutch government refused to listen!

  • From Cristian Hassell Feliciano on New Saba Island Council installed and Commissioners appointed

    The entrance of the PEP (Party for Progress, Equality and Prosperity into the island Council of Saba certainly is a sign of Change with Mr. Hemmie Van Xanten. The addition of change within the WIPM established Party embody by Ms. Elsa Peterson who ran a very Professional and Outstanding Campaign is also great and dynamic Change for Saba , Jewel most Precious in the Caribbean Sea!!! She studied International Law and Human Rights a great asset and enrichment to the the Saba island Council! I admired the way in which Ms. Elsa Peterson gave out a speech during her campaign of the historical facts of the Participation of the Netherlands in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and the role that the Netherlands needs to play to redeem itself from this great Evil and Injustice towards people of African Descent in the Dutch Kingdom!!! The Dutch Government and Prime Minister Mark Rutte need to also pass Laws to protect Cultural Diversity in the Netherlands and in the Dutch Kingdom. Respect towards Race and Culture, Rich Or Poor, Black or White, Indian or Asian, Latino or Filippino, Immigrant or Not, Foreign or Native we all are One People and we all deserve an Equal Treatment!!! Saba also needs to grow, Tourism needs to be expanded!!! Enough of keeping Saba Small and Stagnant!!! Island Council Member Ms. Elsa Peterson also was Dynamic in stressing on the importance of Leadership!!! “The Leader is not only the one who manages a human group, but the one who knows how to lead it and straighten its crooked cells.” Dr. Jose Francisco Peña Gomez. I encourage all the five island Council Members of Saba to and the Two Commissioners Eviton Heyliger and Bruce Zagers to please stand up for Progress, Equality and Prosperity on Small Saba like the PEP Party!!! I close in the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that!

    Nice to hear this cooperation. Maybe they can cooperate also to realize that we can book on line extra luggage when we are traveling with KLM from Amsterdam to Saba. Now I can not book on line extra luggage by KLM.

  • From Cris Feliciano on Voting Bureau approves reports polling stations

    The PEP Party has the Right solely to send it’s Party Leader to lead in the island Council. It sounds like someone is dubiously afraid of Hemmie Van Xanten!!! Let PEP handle it’s own affairs!!!

  • From Chris on Voting Bureau approves reports polling stations

    The votes have been counted, the results are known and the law then determines which candidates will receive a council seat.
    In the case of PEP, it is very unreasonable that Simmons, J.J. with the amount of votes he received, is not one of them.
    It would be to PEP’s credit if they changed that and gave Simmons the second council seat.
    This can be achieved when, successively, Van Xanten, Holm, Every and Thielman decline a nomination, Simmons is then the next to be appointed.
    It is that simple.

  • From René Caderius van Veen on WIPM 3 seats in Saba elections, PEP 2 seats

    Will Saskia Matthew become a new member of the Island Council or will she keep her job as a civil servant?
    The combination of both is prohibited.

    • From Dave Levenstone on WIPM 3 seats in Saba elections, PEP 2 seats

      The law does permit her to take a leave of absence from her civil servant job. She does not have to resign her job.
