‘Maribaka’: Homophobia in Media and Politics

The undeniable machismo matrix in which we live always gave little to no respect to people with non-heterosexual preferences. Last week during the Parliament meeting the usual political clashes climaxed as Amigoe describes: “In the second round of the meeting MFK-parliamentarian Jacinta Constancia referred to PS-leader Helmin Wiels as ‘maribaka’. Although this word does not exist, all interpretations pointed to a corruption of an existing Papiamentu term of abuse for people with a homosexual nature. The first two syllables (ma-ri) correspond with the first two syllables of the term of abuse in Papiamentu. The last syllable of the term of abuse is ‘ku’.
The pronunciation in Dutch is ‘koe’ (cow) and the word koe means ‘baka’ in Papiamentu.”

Jacinta Scoop-Constancia questioned Wiels his manhood. The next day the PS leader hit back during his saturday evening party meeting insinuating that she might be a ‘he’.

Mario Kleinmoedig spokeperson for the LGBT community demanded in front of a CBA camera that Parliament needs to come up with a protocol to forbid using language that discriminates, insults, offends sexual diverse minorities.

On multiple occassions we have normalized during elections, referendums or just heated political ‘debates’ in the media and Parliament the labeling of our opponents as dirty, strange, same sex loving beings. We had journalists who were part of the LGBT community but tolerated the homophobic instigation to knock down their political enemies. Other journalists who worship catholicism and use their media power to agitate against people who prefer people of their own sex while going to a church where a closeted pastor preaches.

Word is now that they got Maribaka t-shirts, people everywhere use it but won’t consider to sit down and think that even though it sounds like a ‘fun’ word to use you are dissing members of our nation that have the same rights just like you and should not be discriminated.

And its tough because Black patriarchy, machismo will beat you down everyday with the word ‘mariku’ (faggot) where ever you go from low social status to high societies parties, there’s no way in escaping it and the awareness to stop using it or tolerating it will automatically lead others to question one’s own sexuality.

Kleinmoedig after long opinion spitting absence returned with valid points that only a scarce few in the media were willing to highlight. One of the important things he said was that if you are sexually diverse and strong-minded you wouldn’t have problems dealing with this ‘maribaka’ hype and all its social torment consequences but if you young and just coming up with a lot of insecurities it will bust these persons up.

Political leaders and media personalities and owners need to reach that level of maturity where the LGBT community gets respected and given space to voice their concerns anytime without having to worry about religious motivated censorship.

If we cry about Dutch white racism then we should not let undercover LGBT-bashing slide away without questioning it and challenging it.

Stima pa hopi bou dje klase trahado, stroba hopi pa e klase haltu ku no tabata desea di mira e obrero bai muchu lihe dilanti den nan bida sosial i bira un hende emansipa sin dependensia dje sistema ekonomiko-finansiero di e elite, Mgr. dr. Amado Römer tabata un barku di gera spiritual ku 21 kayon den sapatu di un pastor katoliko.

17 di aprel a rekorda ku ya pa tres anja e no tei mas fisikamente. Un pais ku riba nivel di hustisia sosial ta den un temporada berans i por sinja hopi di e herensia na abundansia ku mgr. dr. Amado Römer a laga atras. E pakiko nos no ta usa e tesoro intelektual aki tin su raisnan den e mesun hecho ku antes Lio Capriles eks direktor di Banko Maduro a buta traba pa koperativanan no a plama riba gran skala ront Korsou. Tin un malchi disenja den mente di hende riba stuhlnan ku por influensia e masa grandi pa konsentra, traha i logra un kambio sosial real pero e grupo ku tin su representashon den media, sektor priva, religion, sindikalismo, ensenjansa ta prefera di basila riba un wega mediokre.

Hopi hende no sa kon e kurason grandi di mgr. dr. Amado Römer tabata bati pa su pueblo. Preguntanan ta lanta pero no tin un kaminda sentral pa hanta kontesta riba nan.
Pakiko no tin un website? Pakiko su diskursonan no ta riba CD, den un buki?
– Ken tabata e hendenan ku a inspire durante su bida?
– Kiko e kier a mira kambia den iglesia katoliko?

Tin un Wendel Girigori Change Award premiando desaroyonan ku ta tira nan granito riba e seru di kambionan positivo na Korsou. Ki dia ta kuminsa organisa un Amado Römer konfersensia ku ta premia hendenan ku un premio pa nan trabou riba hustisia sosial?

Konta ku nos artistanan? Niun no a hanja inspirashon pa skibi un kansion riba e leyenda Amado Römer? Niun pintor por pinta un pintura grandi riba un muruya, of hasi un eksposishon grandi na un kaminda habri publiko pa lanta interes?
Radio, tv no por a traha un programa di sikiera un ora dedika na un luchado bon yu di Korsou di berdat ku a trese hopi avanse pe pueblo ku a wordu tene pober? Ni un foyeto barata ku su logronan feu dia ela bira un saserdote na Otrobanda?

Bo no por ferwagtu di hende ku ta spiritualmente plan bari pa nan bai duna atenshon na baluartenan ku a nifika hopi riba tereno sosial-ekonomiko, emansipativo pa e pais aki. Tuma por ehempel tur e lidernan politiko niun por tuma e initiativo pa elogia i honra mgr. dr. Amado Römer via un manera di institushonalisa su idealnan i vishon pa un miho Korsou.

Transformashon sosial ta nifika ku hende lo bai tin tempu pa interesa mas den podernan politiko, ekonomiko, finansiero pasobra nan bida a klara un tiki. Esei ta un menasa pa esnan ku tin e poder. Den nan logika un bida miho pe klase abou lo nifika un bida hodidu pa nan; e klase haltu. Amado Römer lo a bedei nan: “Mas inisiativa i mas konvikshon personal di su propio balor i responsabilidat pa su futuro, por yega na pone Korsou kaminda tur hende ta desea: komo kontribuido na un mundu miho, kaminda tur yu di Dios ta gasta di loke Kreador a pone pa tur Su Yunan sin eksepshon.”

Un Abraso Pa Rasismo Ulandes, Dokumentando Poder Blanku Riba Un Nashon Kolonisa

Prueba kuru ta difisil pa ninga si un pueblo ta un presu di su kolonisado e opresor ekonomiko, finansiero, politiko, kultural i edukativo ora for di Ulanda hende por bin traha un dokumentario na Korsou riba e komunidat Ulandes pensionado riku ku ta skupi opinionnan rasista sin kasi niun hende ta purba di responsabilisa e grupo di hende pa nan aktonan.

Den e dokumentario di NTR, Onderelkaar ‘Hollandse Maatjes’ e rasismo Ulandes ta sali asinaki riba pantaya ora nan ta papia mal maria bou di nan kelki di binja karu tras di murayanan haltu den nan mundu blanku privilegia: 1. “Hombunan Yu di Korsou e uniko kos ku nan gusta hasi ta sinta bou di un palu henter dia, chinga….i hunga domino. 2. Sklabitut? Ai tende’ki nan a bin aki, na unda nan mester a bai anto? Nan lo tabata na Afrika ku un balinja tapando nan penis ku un saya di yerba. Mi tata den anjanan 1900 (na Ulanda) tabata tin un bida hopi mas duru ku nan. E Yu di Korsou di edat ta hopi amikal, nan ta papia bon Ulandes tambe, te generashon hoben adikto na panjanan di marka i si nan no por hanje nan ta horte. Pa 400 florin nan ta tirabu! 3. Bo por hasi tur kos akinan: kore kabai, hunga hockey, ballet. Aki ta mane Ulanda ku bon wer. 4. Bo no mester papia Papiamentu akinan, kalke hende ku tiki inteligensia ta papia Ulandes of Ingles. 5. Oh sigur, nos tin hopi danki di paga ne invershonistanan Ulandes. 6. E historia di sklabitut tin ku stop, madura hombu e koi a pasa 300 anja pasa. Bai buska drecha pakiko kos ta bai robes riba bo isla. 7. Bo mester yama Dios danki riba bo rudia ku nos ansestronan a kuminsa trese katibunan akibou den siglo 17. Bo tin un miho bida awoki, si no tabata pa nan (Ulandesnan) lo bo tabata biba na uhm… Kosta Ivor ku wesunan bora den bo nanishi ku sayanan di yerba. Mire komo algu positivo.”

Rasismo di makambanan na Korsou ta un topiko taboe. Bo no mag di papie den espasionan publiko, den media ratu ratu ora e awa pasa harinja lo bo tende reklamo pero un analyse kritiko riba e komunidat di Ulandesnan i su impakto sosial-ekonomiko ta algu ku kasi nunka a sosode. Nan lo bisabu ku e no ta eksisti pesei e dokumentario ‘Curacao’ di 2011 i esun di NTR no a wordu pasa na Telecuracao pa pueblo por tuma nota dje registrashon di un rasismo Ulandes brutu den bo kara. Tin un publiko grandi ku no ta wori pa subi internet i wak e dokumentario pa forma un opinion. Te masa aki ta pasando den diferente forma di rasismo Ulandes pero media i organisashonan ku ta boga pa independensia, emansipashon no ta demostra un boluntat pa laga e masa aki sa dje dokumentarionan aki ku ta sirbi pa bon matrial di les.

Bo no por kwestiona e kolonia Ulandes elite ekonomiko. Bo no por tribi di midi nan poder riba diferente tereno riba e isla aki. Politikonan, akademikonan, intelektualnan, lidernan den opinion lo no sakrifika nan neshi di komfort. Niun profesor ku ta bula bin for di Ulanda a yega hasi un investigashon sientifiko riba e Ulandesnan na Korsou. Si nan sa kon ta koba den nos Archivo Nashonal skibi kon sklabitut kompara ku otro kolonisado no tabata dje teribel ei. Pero sientifikamente kontribui pa nos akibou progresa riba tereno di emansipashon ta masha tiki si no nada.

Komunidat Ulandes su reakshon riba e dokumentario i e ekspreshonnan rasista tabata unu ku bo por kalifika komo furia barata. Nan ta pretende ku ta solamente un grupo masha chikitu mes ta asina rasista i ku nos no mester prekupa ku nan. Remetidonan skibi ku a sali den korant Amigoe (13) i komentarionan riba Versgeperst sigur no ta sufisiente pa buta un spil dilanti e karanan rasista di nan mes miembronan di komunidat Ulandes. Berdat ta ku mayoria makamba no ta ekplito rasista manera den e dokumentario pero echo si ta ku un mayoria grandi ta sostone i mantene e sistema fini rasista poder Ulandes.
Bo no mester papia palabranan malu rasista pa bo ta un rasista, konsientemente i inkonsientemente nan ta konfirma tur lokwal a wordu bisa den e dokumentario. E absensia di un akshon organisa pa rechasa e rasismo ekspresa di parti di komunidat Ulandes of miho ainda un esfuerso pa kita, mengua e poder Ulandes of sikiera denunsia, kritika e sistema rasista dje poder Ulandes ta bisa tur kos. Realidat marga ta ku tin un ningamentu sistematiko di parti e Ulandesnan ku ta pretende di stima Yu di Korsou pa desmantela e sistema pesta ku rasismo Ulandes galvanisa den podernan ekonomiko, finansiero.
E rasismo Ulandes ta pertenese na un spiritu kolektivo ku ta wak pa nan mes hendenan prome, nan mes klase. Apsolutamente nan no ta tei aki pa yuda emansipa, yuda dekolonisa e podernan ekonomiko, finansiero. Pa nan parti e sikatrisnan mental spiritual di sklabitut i kolonialismo por keda te den siglo di siglonan.

E grupo aki huntu ku e elite kriyoyo i klase medio no ta interesa pa finansa proyektonan sosial-kultural ku ta oumenta e konsenshi dje Yu di Korsou di desendensia Afrikano pa nan kompronde e matris di poder kiko ta nifika di ta pretu na Korsou ku un historia di sklabitut i kolonialismo Ulandes. Di mes nan lo hinka plaka den un pelikula manera Tula the Revolt pero esei nunka ku e meta pa lanta e konsenshi, poder kultural pretu ku outomatikamente lo krea un poder ekonomiko dje Yu di Korsou pretu. Tanten e makamba ta ‘bendishona’ nos ekonomia ku €uros i ta gorda nos Produkto Bruto Interno e rasismo Ulandes ta mira komo un regalo di Dios.

Joceline Clemencia na 1999 a skibi un dokumento pa UNESCO yama: ‘Papiamentu ta mas ku un lenga’ eiden e ta bedei presis e estado ku nos ta biba aden ketu bai 13 anja despues: “Den nos ignorante inosensia of inosensia ignorante nos a bula e echo ku historikamenta nan tabata i ta esnan ku ta reina i nos tesnan ku nan ta reina riba. Poder nunka ta wordu duna e mester wordu konkista si no pe spada e ora ei ku mente. Nos no a studia nos reinadonan bon, si no nos lo tabata sa ku nos ta programa pa pensa ku nos no ta programa; ku si nos drei nos kara pa tempu largu nos i ninga eksistensia di kolonialismo elo disaparese outomatikamente. Nos a lubida ku nos a wordu entrena pa no mira kolonialismo komo kolonialismo.”

E antifas kolonial ta poderoso, difisil pa sosiedat desmakare i komo Joceline Clemencia a bisa: “Nos pais a lubida di krea fakultatnan di humanidatnan pa sinja nos su historia i nos historia, geografia, antropologia, sosiologia, lenguage i nos mes lenga. E diskushon pa kuminsa un fakultat di lenguage ta sigi sin niun resultado pa mas ku un dekada. Ningando kolonialismo nos no solamente a hanja sikatrisnan pero ela penetra hundu den nos kweru den nos ser i den un forma sivilisa a kultiva nos skolnan, akademianan i universidat. Nos ta pase over pa nos yunan ku balor propio abou, falta di konfiansa propio, un kompleho di inferioridat, malkonfia, miedu di responsabilidat, falta di kreatividat i initiativa, i pensamentu no-sientifiko.”

Si te ainda tin almanan ku no ke mira e wega di poder ku mas profundidat e ora ei Trudi Martinus-Guda kasa di skibido Frank Martinus Arion ta blas hende su peluka ku goyanan glorioso despues di un siman di remetido hipokrita den korant Amigoe den un stilo uniko di ‘Pal’i Muhe’: “Hipokresia tradishonal aktando mane sobra dje pueblo no ta wordu diskrimina. E falta di boluntat di rekonose ku esaki ta origina for di patronchinan di pensamentu ekspresa pa hendenan Ulandes naievo: e rejekshon i abominashon total di Afrika i su habitantenan pretu, komo eksusa di hustifika sklabitut, kolonisashon i diskriminisashon. Esaki tambe ta nifika rejekshon di religionnan Afrikano, kulturanan, i karakteristikanan fisiko asumiendo prehuisonan kontra nan abilidat humano i tambe di nan desendientenan en general. I tur esaki pari siglonan largu, hasta mas largu ku 200 anja reino Ulandes. I no solamente dor di hende Ulandes pero tambe pa imigrantenan i Yu di Korsou. Esei te asuntu prinsipal. E deklarashonnan ekstremo ta djis un asuntu den banda!”

Un kolektivo kritiko tin ku balora e responsabilidat di traha dokumentarionan oudio-visual riba poder, rasa, klase, genero, i e efektonan di sklabitut i kolonialismo i e berdadero nifikashon di 150 anja komemorashon abolishon di 1863-2013. E bandera Ulandes ta wapa, un djis un rei nobo lo subi trono i kon nos posishon mester ta por wordu diskuti, i hanja un forma mas visibel ora nos mes krea un espasio pe enbes di laga forsanan djafo bin disidi kon nos tin ku pensa papia aktua. A yega e ora pa kita e tjupon emansipativo ei pa semper.

Decolonial Power Grips: Documenting Dutch Rich White Racism

Under a glass of expensive wine behind protective high walls in their white privileged paradise in front of the cameras Dutch rich pensioners the protaganists of the ‘Hollandse Maatjes’ documentary unleash the following racist flammatory statements: 1. Curaçaoan men all they do is sit all day under a tree, play domino and fuck. 2. Slavery? Come on, listen they came here where else should they have gone to? They would’ve been in Africa with a penis shaft and a straw skirt on. My dad in the early 1900s (in the Netherlands) had it rougher than them down here. The old Curaçaoans are very friendly, they speak perfect Dutch too, its the younger generation hooked on brand name clothes and if they can’t have it they steal it. For 400 florins they’ll shoot you! 3. You can do anything down here: ride horses, play hockey, ballet its just like Holland with good weather. 4. You don’t have to speak Papiamentu here, anyone with a bit of intelligence speaks Dutch or English. 5. Oh sure we owe a lot to Dutch investors. 6. That slavery story has got to stop, grow up man that’s 300 years ago.
Go find out why your island is failing. 7. You should thank God on your bare knees that our forefathers started bringing ‘slaves’ down here in the 17th century. You have a better life now, if it wasn’t for them you would still be living in uhm Ivory Coast with bones through your nose and straw skirts on. See it as something positive.”

Dutch white racism on widespread levels does not exist, its taboo to say so it does in Curaçao. The media in general (few exceptions aside) usually does not discuss it with vigor and fearlesness, failing to analyze all the levels of impact it has from profound socio-economic angles. You just don’t want to open up the masses eyes that didn’t see, read about this controversial documentary in the papers or have access to internet to catch it behind a laptop. Can’t shake up the Dutch economic elite. Can’t scrutinize, measure their power on a corporate, educational, health, judicial, financial level. Politicians, pressure groups, scholars, academics, intellectuals, media and opinion makers will not sacrifice their comfort nest. Nobody ever done research on the Dutch conclave, Dutch professors come down to investigate, dig through our National Archives write stuff about slavery and how benevolent it was compared to other colonizing nations but do absolutely nothing that contributes to structurally fortify our emancipation process.

The light weight outrage of the Dutch expats against this documentary and its false framing of their reality is questionable. Their claims are that only a small percentage on the island are racist. Letters to the editor of Amigoe and Versgeperst comments are not enough to hold racist community members accountable. The majority of the Dutch is not explicitely racist as can be seen in the documentary Onderelkaar ‘Hollandse Maatjes’ but a majority does support and maintains the subtle finetuned Dutch white racist power system. There’s no need to speak foul words but the average Dutch will cosign silently almost everything that has been said in the documentary consciously or subconsciously. The absence of organized action to overthrow or even slightly readjust that system says enough. A silent systematic refusal echoes through-out the island to desmantle that Dutch racist framework galvanized in economic, financial power. So in the end denial is cute but hypocritical.
The Dutch white racism spirit belongs to a large collective, looking out for their own people, their own class and they are absolutely not interested into decolonizing that system or striving to unshackle theirselves and the Curaçaoans from unresolved slavery and colonialism scarifications on the mental and spiritual level.

This group rarely will finance social-cultural projects, those that increase the understanding of Blackness in Curaçao and boost Afro-Curaçaoan cultural and economic power. Along with the Black elite clique awareness on many levels that could bring progress in many communites stays underdeveloped. Of course the Dutch and Curaçao colonized elite will sponsor a film like Tula The Revolt out of financial motives but certainly not with the intention to uplift Black cultural power which automatically, eventually leads to Black economic power. As long as it blesses our economy with €uros and boosts up our GDP Dutch white racism is seen as God’s gift.

And we won’t stop riding on that false perception wave until we fully overstand the soul sister message Joceline Clemencia wrote in her 1999 UNESCO paper ‘Papiamentu is more than a language’: “In our ignorant innocence or innocent ignorance we overlooked the fact that they were, and historically are, the rulers and we the ruled ones, and that power never renders itself; it has to be conquered, if not by sword then by the mind. And we neglected the mind. We have not studied our rulers well enough, otherwise we would have known that we were programmed to think that we are not programmed; that if we looked the other way long enough and denied the existence of colonialism it would automatically
disappear. We forgot that we were trained not to see colonialism as colonialism.”

The colonial blindfolds are powerful, their financial threads are tight woven into our society and are not that easy to rip apart especially as Joceline Clemencia further states that: “The country forgot to found the faculties of Humanities to teach us history and herstory, geography, anthropology, sociology, languages, and our own language. The discussion about
starting a language faculty has been going on for more than a decade now with no results. While denying colonialism we did not only get scars, but it penetrated deeply into our genes and, in a very civilized way, cultivated in our schools, academies, and university we pass on to our
children a very low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, an inferiority complex, distrust, fear of responsibility, absence of creativity and initiative, and non-scientific thinking.”

Trudi Martinus-Guda the wife of acclaimed author and Papiamentu emancipator Frank Martinus Arion after a week of cheap Amigoe readers smoke screen commentary drops one of the realest knowledge jewels critique ever in local Dutch newspaper history in true Creole ‘Pal’i muhe’ fashion: “Traditional hypocrisy acting as if the rest of the population is not being discriminated. The unwillingness to recognize this originates from think patterns expressed by these naieve Dutch folks: the total rejection and abomination of Africa and the Black habitants of Africa, as excuse and justification for slavery, colonization and discrimination. Meaning as well rejection of African religions, cultures and physical characteristics assuming prejudice regarding their human abilities, and also those of their descendants, in general. And that a couple of centuries long, even longer than 200 years Kingdom! And that not only by Dutch people, but also by other immigrants and Curaçaoans. That is the main issue. The extreme statements are just side-issues.”

A critical collective must value the responsability to make audio-visual documentaries about power, race, class, gender and the effects of slavery, colonialism and the true meaning of 150 years after abolition under a Dutch flag and soon to be king. We can’t let outsiders keep creating our public debates and putting their emancipatory pacifiers in our mouths.

Jose Maria Capricorne, Cinema Politics & the Art of Seducing The Working Class

Routinary has become the tactics to transform a public place of cultural creativity like a multiplex movie theater into an occupied space of middle and upper class subtly oppressing and limiting access to the struggle and working class a phenomenon often seen during many symposiums, conferences and lectures. This years second edition of the Curaçao International Film Festival was no exception to experience the love fest for social caste discrimination.

Deliberately low key wack promotion at popular radio stations with massive regular folks audiences and high concentrated daily promo activity in Dutch local and elite media produce these types of oppression climates. This is how they threw an invisible social cordon around the Curacao North Sea Jazz festival combined with mega expensive ticket prices which mostly people from the middle and dominant class could reach down deep pockets to pass through the gates.

Screenings like Maria Full of Grace and Ghett’a Life without Colombians and Jamaicans cheering or cussing the characters during scenes is raw proof how the marketing strategies were solely aimed at the more ‘educated’ classes that in the managements scheme of calculated thinking would show more appreciation to the majority of so called art movies.
Shout out to the slim crew of middle aged West Indian women that slung verbal ass-whooping commentary during scenes through the theater.

The local young talent filmmakers competing for an award also both visualized a story from a middle/upper class gaze which left you to wonder why talented young bloods from socially troubled surroundings never made the cut and if next year the organization will ensure the participation of struggling youths with cinematography skills. Their stories must be seen on the big screen, schools need to start with film classes and private sector better start funding it too if they really want to see the rise of a creative industry supported and held sustainable by a younger generation.

The Jose Maria Capricorne documentary ‘Wonderboom’ made by Tanja Fraai and Mike Ho-Sam-Sooi documenting the life and art of his graphics, strokes of his brushes, the sculpting hand of this man a co-founder of the only Art Academy that Curacao ever had from 1969 til the beginning of the 21st century when neoliberal budget cuts closed it and massacred 30+ years of art education.

Art education and appreciation for and by the working class was according to the makers of the film what Capricorne strived for. The regular youth in a public housing hood like e.g. De Savaan or Montana Abou, Seri Papaya, Barber, the Selikor street sweeper, the hair salon mami all getting down to the beneficial universe of art emancipating their spirits.

The premiere passed, the art elite socialites had their little private-public screening, out of the 8 popular radio’s only ‘one’ appearance at elite Z86 and Telecuracao doesn’t create working class attention to attract them to find out what this Jose Maria Capricorne is all about. It would have suited Tanja Fraai better if she arranged a public viewing via Telecuracao after the screening at the festival. She still has some days left to prove she really respects Capricorne’s philosophy and show working class people real love by doing a public free screening on national television this week. Shouldn’t be a tough thing to do with all her journo and media experience.
Emancipation through art is not an elite toy to play with.

Bon Yu di Korsou No Ta Sinti E Dushi di Demokrasia 75 Anja

`Hende ku hamber no por pensa` te dicho original di e moderado Juny Joseph na Fiesta FM ku ta lagabu reflekshona kiko bida ta pa un mayoria grandi ku dia aden dia afo tin ku biba den un mundu di kapitalismo krioyo sin por gara chensnan pa krese komo hende, gana un salario na drechi, subi e trapi sosial bira un suidadano ku tin e hermentnan pa yuda su prohimo briya meskos kune dia ela klara un krenchi.

Ora bo ta den bo drama sosial diario di traha plaka pa kria yu, paga hur, awa i lus, wak tanchi of mai, ta drif net net ku kabes riba awa ku un salario minimo disenja pa lagabu bira un salbage bo no ta interesa den kampanjanan manera esun di Telecuracao ku su ‘Bon Yu di Korsou’.
Un merkadeo su tras ku ta butabu pensa kiko tin ei tras, kiko UTS/Paul de Geus kemen ku awo ela bin ku tarifanan mas abou, promoshon nobo? Kiko Hubert van Grieken donjo di Kentucky Fried chicken, Pizza Hut, Subway kemen? Chicu Capriles di MCB ta bai demokratisa bankonan ku awero pueblo por tin un bos signifikante den e manego bankario di banko Maduro i Curiel? Tesei ta e esensia di duna instansia, instituto, hende un seyo di aprobashon di ta Bon Yu di Korsou.

Awe na Merka ne suidat New York trahado di fast food luganan a bai welga paso nan ke oumento di nan salario. Trahadonan ku basikamente suptilmente wordu menasa pa no bai buska representashon di sindikato den empresanan manera Wendy’s, KFC, Burger King i otronan. Situashon na Korsou no ta otro pero nos a tende den prensa e notisia importante ku por a habri wowo i inspira, inkurasha e trahadonan di por ehempel Hubert van Grieken? Nos planta nashonal Telecuracao bou dje mente magnifiko di direktor Hugo Lew Yen Tai no a pasa e notisia impaktante i di importansia grandi pa pusha e konsenshi di hustisia laboral na un nivel superior den nos sektor di servisio di horeka.

For di nan boka ta sali frasenan filosofiko mane komporta bo mes komo Bon Yu di Korsou pero Telecuracao ku tin e instrumento magiko poderoso pa komberti nos tur den suidadanonan kritiko ku kompertashon ku por eleva nos mes te aya no ta hasi uso di dje ora e tin ku traha notisia of programanan pa chispa e mentalidat pa bira un bon yu di tera di berdat. Unda bo programanan riba salu, edukashon, arte, ekonomia, finansas, politika, kultura ta pa nos komo hende por desaroya i bira lokwal boso ta purba di merkadea awoki?

E Bon Yu di Korsou e ta kontentu ku majan lo selebra 75 anja di demokrasia parlamentario? Awenochi ta tin un diskushon di panel despues di un diskurso di wes Bob Wit di Korte di Hustisia di Karibe for di Trinidad i Tobago. E miembronan dje panel tabata Wit, Orlando Cuales direktor di Z86, Suzy Camelia-Romer eks prome minister, hurista, Hitzig Bazur aktivista politiko, intelektual ku a krea un konstistushon nobo.

Diskurso di Bob Wit tabata riba nivel pero organisado por a usa mas kreatividat i invita un persona ku ta biba na Korsou ku por papia e lenga dje 60/70% dje klase trahado ku ta luchando pa sobrebibi i no tin gana pa skucha ‘un koi kwenti demokrasia’ na un emisora mal skucha pa pueblo klase trahado manera Z86. Na momentunan asinaki un Bon Yu di Korsou lo a organisa un debate riba 75 anja demokrasia i kon nan ta kere por lagele drei mas miho pa nan por hala un rosea i disfruta dje benefisionan ku awoki un parti chikitu so por manera esnan durante e panel na Banko Sentral.

Oportunidatnan manera esun aki bo tin ku transmiti nan na televishon i radionan popular manera Krioyo, Deltha, MAS99, Direct. Awo si ta e patronchi eterno di laga hende studia bon para so hiba diskushon semi-diktorial kiko ta demokrasia i kon por perfekshone sin e pueblo mayoritario den bom tin un bos influensial bo ta rekete robes i violando lokwal di berdat nos ta yama demokrasia pe pueblo.

Ekslushon dje empobresa, esnan sin diploma karu, e hoben, e muhe, e hende grandi, e presu, e studiante ta tin awenochi na Banko Sentral. Sobadje a papia skat di kos pero nada nada riba e faktor prinsipal ku ta orkestra kon hende ta pensa, papia, aktua i reakshona riba demokrasia: e sistema kapitalista krioyo ku su man drechi media via plataformanan di korant, televishon, radio i internet.
Si bo wordu manipula foi mainta trempan ora bo lanta pa wori kwa hende a hanja un bala, ken a wordu atraka, kwa outo a dal, ken a bai Venezuela hasi kiko, kwa parlamentario a hasi torne e proseso pa traha un malchi mas hustu di bo demokrasia ta destina pa frakasa pe pueblo, no pa esnan den sirkulonan di poder nan si lo ta di hubilo.

Bon Yu di Korsou nekdo tin hopi, e intenshon ta bon pero meskos ku e kampanja di Telecuracao tabata hasi falta di un aserkamentu mas profeshonal sientifiko kombina ku sabiduria di kaya. Sosiologo Adriaan Moen a skupi palabranan di kalidat profundo ora ela bisa tin 84.000 vehikulo, hopi outo pero 1 famia tin 4 outo i 4 famia no tin outo mes. Pa demokrasia ta bibu mester tin diskushonnan riba interes dje orden establesi, e 1/2/3% ku ta domina e forsa ekonomiko-finansiero. Debatenan pa oumenta bo konsenshi i partisipashon politiko, papia i efektivamente organisa un kambio di bo sistema di sirkulashon di poder i plaka dje Bon Yu di Korsou einan kos tei sinta, einan e Tambu tin ku sera pa nos spiritu por monta na un mundu ku demokrasia renoba di berdat.

[= For di e diskushon lo sali artikulo den korant, na radio lo papia riba dje i asina ta manipula un agenda di demokrasia real sin e pueblo mes mes por a naviga e debate segun su nesesidatnan, asinaki nos lo sigi 75 anja mas?

[= Positivo ku a menshona Referendum Konvokatorio i Asemblea Popular ku tin na Venezuela

[= Diskurso di Bob Wit tbt na ulandes, Latino, Hatiano, habla Ingles no por a sigi si nan tabata asina loko pa skucha Z86…

[= PAIS Alex Rosaria no ta organisa pa pueblo diskuti 75 anja demokrasia parlamentario manera su idolo Doktor Da Costa Gomez lo a hasi si e tabata na bida awe?

[= Gruponan di preshon elitario Akshon Sivil, Dushi Korsou, Pro Pueblo, Grupo 33 unda nan ta, no ta organisa mas?

Un Pueblo Rabia Ta Bati Huda, Chikote pa Wiels

– Bati un hende manera ta bati Huda | Duna un hende un bon hala di sota

– E ta masha huda| E ta un traidor

– Un Hudas| Un traidor, amigu falsu

E anja’ki Bati Huda organisa pa Hóbennan Ku Bista Riba Majan a karga e nomber di media-stilte referiendo ne hecho ku e persona ku semper tabata kla pa papia den media riba tur kos tur ora a disidi di keda ketu. E popchi ta tin un lomba hanchu ku helmu kora bisti lagando niun duda atras ku riba dia di resurekshon di Hesus Kristu e Huda pa 2013 tabata Helmin Wiels. Pueblo kritiko no a traga e traishon elektoral pa motibu di bandona e pakto ku MFK, MAN despues di elekshon i bula e drenta kura neoliberal di PAIS, PNP i miembro independiente Glen Sulvaran.

Frustrashon, rabia, desapunto, agonia dje sufrimentu di e traishon politiko ta keda ekspresa den e ritual di Bati Huda. Mientrastantu Wiels ta hasi cherchi dje evento krioyo bisando ku hende a wordu paga pa Bati Huda i ku nan tin miedu di bati su persona nan mes pesei nan ta bati un popchi, sigiendo kere ku su rol di Zorro no a keda desmaskara purbando di lusi komo e emansipado infalibel omnisiente di Korsou.

Domferstan ta un grip, un viro ku ta pega serka hende sigur ora bo lubida bo raisnan sosial. E pika mortal ku te ainda Wiels no ke rekonose ta ku ora ela disidi riba su mes den forma ku elite anti-demokratiko diktorial so semper a hasi di bai krea un werewere politiko lagando un elektorado di MFK (18450),MAN(8294) i gran parti di PS (19715) tur vulnerabel ku te ainda no a desaroya un konsenshi politiko atras komo werfano.

Ta e bruhamentu di ideologia, filosofia politiko ta debilita e konsenshi sosial dje grupo aki. Politika di chinchirinchi di bai bin sin por stabilisa sinta ketu i fortifika un vishon i akshon komun pa mehora e posishon ku a wordu roba for di nan ta un kansansio. Pueblo Soberano sin e sosten di 26mil piku voto di MFK, MAN ta mane e kantika “Mi So Den Boso” rondona pa partidonan semi i neoliberal no por pusha un agenda sosial dilanti. Esei no ta nifika ku antes ku Schotte i Cooper esei si tabata e kaso pero sikiera Wiels di banda por a influensia e votado di MFK i MAN pa preshona nan lidernan pa trese kambio real. Esaki ta bira hopi mas difisil (ku eksepshon mitar mitar di PNP) ku votadonan di PAIS ku su 4 asiento i miembro independiente Sulvaran ku tin e kartera di moneda magiko di finansas.

Wiels ni maske e tin su puntonan bon henter e bululu aki a kousa un epedemia di deskonfiansa serka pueblo ku ni maske ratu ratu e ta papia i move den lus i berdat su pasonan trastu feu november lastu 2012 ta strobe pa e por radia ku outoridat, kredibilidat politiko i hanja e sosten sin pueblo mester duda den dje.

No mester di un dia spesial disenja pa midi kon krouw pueblo ta riba lider di Soberano. Meskos ku antes hende no por a wanta di mira kara di Emily de Jongh-Elhage riba pantaya awendia Wiels na Telecuracao of CBA ta garantia ku hopi lo kambia kanal. Realidatnan ku futuro lidernan politiko tin ku tene bon kwenta kune. Tanten no ta demostra niun forma di arepenti e angustia dje elektorado konsiente i kritiko ta keda tota den weya.

E herensia kultural Bati Huda riba su mes mester keda biba i wordu engrandese yuda pa institutonan manera NAAM, Archivo Nashonal, Kas di Kultura ku dokumentashon profundo. Ne momentunan aki si bo subi youtube e grabashonnan ta kortiku i superfisial kaminda bo por saka hopi mas djus historiko kultural for di personanan pa sa kiko presis a pasa dor di piki pensamentu di hoben i bjeew, hombu i muhe, pretu i blanku kada anja ku ta tin batimentu Huda na Korsou. Temporada di Seu ta kabando i pa otro anja nos tin ku kosecha tiki mas seriedat den kwida nos goyanan kultural ku ta reforsa nos luchanan, alimenta nos identidat sigiendo di bai dilanti usando kustumbernan di nos antepasadonan.
