Respect ancestors

THE EDITOR: The current bacchanal in Pan Trinbago shows a total disrespect to pan ancestors. It is really dancing on the graves of the men who took police batons on their backs, went to jail, got slashed with a white-handle razor, took iron bolts to the body, even “buss heads,” all in the name of pan.

These men made sacrifices to keep the pan afloat. This pulling and tugging in the birthplace of pan is sending the wrong signal to the outside world. What it says is “look where pan reach after 75 years – bacchanal, confusion and comedy,” played out in the national media. What a shame. It begs the questions: Do officials of Pan Trinbago love pan or position?
