Reto Series - Eric Williams Decrees

A collage of Eric Williams, ten years after Trinidad and Tobago's independence.

"There can be no Mother India for those whose ancestors come from India...There can be no Mother Africa for those of African origin...there is no Mother England and no dual loyalties....there can be no Mother China even if one could agrees to which China is the Mother; and there can be no Mother of Syria or no Mother of Lebanon. A nation, like an individual can have only one Mother. the only Mother we recognize is Mother Trinidad and Tobago and Mother cannot discriminate between her children."

This quote is from the first Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago. Dr. Eric Williams believed that no dominant racial group should have preference over another, and that a united people were capability of having a better a fair opportunity for each of its citizens.
