In organizing for voices to be heard in treating with the various tragedies that have been taking place, we must treat with the tragedy that is our Parliament.
This is the advice of social activist Verna St. Rose-Greaves.
Citizens are continuing to show outrage with the killing of Republic Bank employee Shannon Banfield whose funeral is carded for today.
Since her murder there have been calls for justice, with at least one march being held in her honour.
There have also been calls for the murder and ill treatment of women to be stopped immediately.
St. Rose believes that while many are seeking to march and organize petitions, the real issue that should be addressed is the lack of action by T&T’s politicians.
She said that she knows that it would be a difficult for those closest to Shannon and those deeply touched by her murder since her funeral will take place today.
The social activist disclosed that her death resonated with so many because her journey on that day was one that many women take so often.
