Duncan, Gumbs And Heyliger-Marten Call For Urgent Public Meeting On Heritage Preservation

Philipsburg, Sint Maarten — On Wednesday, January 25, 2023, Independent Members of Parliament S. Ludmila Duncan and Grisha Heyliger-Marten, as well as Party for Progress (PFP) Member of Parliament Melissa Gumbs submitted a request for an urgent public meeting on the matter of heritage protection.

Following the recent demolition of the ruins at Diamond Estate in Cole Bay and the outrage by persons in community, the Members have moved quickly to request a public meeting to discuss the incident but more importantly the regulations that would prevent such from occurring again in the future.

The Minister of ECYS and the Minister of VROMI have been requested to come to Parliament to debate the current legislation and policies regarding the preservation and management of heritage as well as to provide updates on the current work of the Monument Council and the long-awaited Monument Fund.

What is extremely disappointing is that this year marks the 160th Anniversary of the Proclamation of Emancipation Read more

Opposition Mps Boycott Unity Flag Meeting.

PHILIPSBURG:--- The presentation on the Unity Flag was scheduled for 10 am. I am told your Honorable Members of Parliament were present but a number of them did not SIGN INTO the meeting (lack of quorum) resulting in the meeting not going ahead publicly.
