The PLP is inviting young Bermudians to participate in their public youth forum on Sunday, June 25th at 7.30pm at PLP HQ.

A PLP spokesperson said, “The Progressive Labour Party is pleased to invite young Bermudians between the ages of 18-35 to participate in our public youth forum on Sunday, June 25th, 2017 at 7:30pm at PLP HQ.

“It is of utmost importance to the PLP government in waiting that our young people are frequently afforded opportunities to engage in productive dialogue with their public representatives.

PLP Youth Forum Bermuda June 2017

“The PLP realizes that young Bermudians have become increasingly frustrated with the OBA government’s broken promises and a track record that many young Bermudians feel does not represent their interests.

“It is imperative that our young Bermudians not only feel a part of the process in the decision-making of the government but that they also contribute to that process. We are keen to listen to the concerns and ideas of our young Bermudians so that their brilliant plans for change can be supported by concrete legislative proposals and government investment.

“The PLP government will be a government of the people, not above, but equal; a government for the many, not the few. We understand that listening to, investing in, and encouraging our young Bermudians is an invaluable component to creating strong positive leadership for the future and we look forward to hearing the invaluable input of all young Bermudians at our public youth forum on Sunday June 25th 2017 at 7:30pm at PLP HQ

“PLP representatives Wayne Caines, Diallo Rabain, Renee Ming, Tinee Furbert and Dennis Lister III amongst others will be present.”

      Voting age is 18+ not just to 35. It’s a platform for young people to voice their opinions. I don’t see how it’s about getting votes? I bet if the OBA hosted a forum like that you’d be singing a different tone!

      • hmmm says:

        The forum was for 18- 35 please pay attention.

        If the OBA did a forum restricting ages then I would be very much be singing the same tone.

    yes very shameful for them to do.. very unreasonable for a political party to target voters during an election…very shamefull indeed.. perhaps the rest of us should file a writ because we couldn’t take our toddlers and 10 year olds who are getting ready for bed at this time. Very shameful indeed. Help..the sky is falling!

    • Young Voter says:

      As a young voter I am greatful that there is a party that is willing to hear the voices of young Bermudians. Weather it be PLP or OBA! I am willing to hear from both sides! Be waiting for the OBA to take an opportunity to dialogue with young bermuidians as well.

    I would urge 18-35 olds to read the Sheila Gomez story (above) and come to their own conclusions on politics in Bermuda.

    • And read de articles when Fahy wanted to give all de summer jobs to children of guest workers and de article when Marshal said they are lucky to be born in Bermuda.

    They call it a ‘forum for discussion’ but Sheila Gomez can tell you what happens if they disagree with your point of view.

  7. John says:

    The young bermudian GLBT community is definitely not welcome here they did zero for equality and their UBP bigot is trying to make our lives his business

    Another attempt at brainwashing the youth with imaginary tales, no doubt.
