Wilson ‘Papa’ Godett: “The racial element in local politics is not new. When I emphatically  focus on the black population I do it not to discriminate but to identify with the large masses who are black in Curaçao. They have the biggest needs. That’s where the misery is at: unemployment, hunger, deplorable housing.  I’m in solidarity whit the black population and when I bring this things on tv it’s to give black people a sense of pride and self confidence.”

In Memory of Amado Römer

Amado Römer: “The philospophy about independence is usually completely coupled to the financial-economic situation and that I find fully degenerative. The people here say: If something happens then we can always fall back on the Netherlands. ….There’s never been any socioplotical educatio, not during the colonial period, neither during the post-colonial period. But for me independence the sooner, the better.”
