As the nation embarks on another new school semester the Progressive Young Liberals supports any initiative that protects our nation’s treasure it’s YOUTH. In that light the PYL denounces the recent Press Statements released by one of our executives, in which he rebuked Rev. Simeon Hall for his comments relating to the proper vetting for teachers to ensure that ‘Sexual Predators’ are kept far from our Classrooms. The press release was not an official PYL statement on this matter. In fact our position not only supports Rev. Hall’s sentiments, the arguments also should be to protect our students from any negative element that would affect their growth and development.
Our mandate as the youth organ of the Progressive Liberal Party is centered on the uplifting and empowerment of our nation’s youth. We will always support any initiative that develops our youth as we have done in the past on numerous occasions whether it is speaking about this present government’s decision to cut back on the guaranteed education loan scheme, supporting our former chairwoman, Hon. Glenys Hanna-Martin calling for a proper investigation regarding the death of a minor while in police custody.
PYL is working continuously to build our branches, strengthening our numbers and providing youth in all constituencies a chance to express their views on their country. As we continue to grow we urge all Young people to join us, speak up and let your voice heard; only then the change we seek for the betterment of our beloved country can be realized.
