Photos & Video: Holdipp Protests At City Hall

October 6, 2014

[Updated with video] John Holdipp stationed himself outside of City Hall today [Oct 6] with two signs; one of which referenced PRCs and Bermudians, while the other sign said “The opinion of the One Bermuda Alliance does not have to be reality of Bermudians in Bermuda.

In an mass email sent late last night, Mr. Holdipp has said, “This is a quiet invitation to come to City Hall every lunch hour this week, starting tomorrow at noon for two hours. We are not marching, but bring your lunch.

“As the numbers build, the government will take notice. The OBA government are not attempting to renovate Bermuda’s economic balance for our benefit, but they are diminishing the potential participation of born Bermudians and their offspring and cousins.

“We must demonstrate our displeasure to this now,” added Mr. Holdipp.

    looking a bit lonely there bro, maybe you can get that chair besides you some company, by asking one of the beggers if he wants to take a load off.. ;)

    • smh says:

      Wow what an unnecessary comment…you got insecurity issues or something?

      • Steve Davis says:

        Like wise, ‘you got insecurity issues’. Also an unnecessary comment don’t you think?

  3. San George says:

    Holdipp, no worries mate. Bermuda’s economic problems are too complex for this OBA lot. PRC’s are merely increasing their options. When Bermuda’s economic problems unwind the PRC’s will head to the airport just as they did in Argentina.

      San George

      With your type of “complex” thinking, Bermuda will be too broke to have an airport and you won’t be able to afford a car….let us all know your new job in onion farming turns out?

    All PRCs are filthy rich, all PRCs are guaranteed jobs, all PRCs will vote OBA…. so many preconceptions, so much ignorance.

      “ll PRCs will vote OBA…. so many preconceptions, so much ignorance”

      Political parties do their homework. Through the work of their consultants, through various polls, through historical trends etc, political parties know where their votes are likely to come from.

      While 100% of PRCs will not vote OBA, the OBA knows they will get the majority of the PRC vote. The PLP knows this as well, which is one of the reasons they are against it.

      Let’s not be naive and suggest the PRC vote is up for grabs. Both parties know who the vast majority of these individuals will vote for.

    • Still Laughing says:

      How ignorant. Please show me proof of such. I know a number of PRC’s who are struggling like so many other people to make ends meet and they all don’t support the OBA. Think before you spout such nonsense!!

      • hmmm says:

        Exactly..PRC’s cover the whole spectrum. The PLP and their gang have made great strides in putting off anyone who would want to vote for the PLP. It has been downright nasty.

    • Kunta says:

      Preconception, so much ignorance ?????????????????????
      So I guess you believe that de manifesto of de Surrogate report is made up too !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        @Kunta—-I like,I like—enjoying your perceptions lately..hmm..Nothing new under Sun because the script has been written and we just playing it out…Much respect to Mr. Clark,Dr. Ben, Ezra&<Mrs Kwesi,Neely Fuller Jr. et al…

    • mdb says:

      WELL, Obviously your ignorant dumb dumb!!!!!!!! How are ALLLL PRC’s filthy rich? i know a lot of pRC’s as do all Bermudians and Me personally. I on’t know any Rich PRC’s let alone ‘Filthy Rich”. You obviously don’t leave you house so shut your hole.

  5. hmmm says:

    PRC’s have lived here pretty much most of their life. Their monies have been accepted just have yours.

    You say 5000 PRC, 433 have applied

    this island is being white washed

  7. Steve Davis says:

    This guy should be by the flag pole on front street with the rest of the demented rummies.

  8. aceboy says:

    Havoc was created by the PLP Mr. Holdipp.

    So, as a Hamilton Councillor you are quick to say this is nothing about the Corporation. Do you think Bermuda should be run like the Corporation of Hamilton????

    What a joke.

  9. Fisherman says:

    Let all the PRC holders vote. They contribute to Bermuda’s well being.Bring it on,let’s get Bermuda rocking again.

  10. serengeti says:

    Looks like the ‘i’ in ‘reality’ was an afterthought.

    • Kunta says:

      Yup, but its there, but I guess you would’ve preferred if it wasn’t there so you could slender him more.
      S*** Head
      How’s that “I” for an afterthought.

  11. Coffee says:

    Keep banging that drum Mr.Holdipp , if this reform goes through the sound of your banging will be drowned out by the hue and cries of three thousand banging drums !

  12. I respect this gentleman’s right to free speech and appreciate the “passive” way he is voices his opinion, regardless of whether I agree or disagree with his message. Better than marching, shouting and disrespect!

  13. Alvin Williams says:

    It is quite clear that under this anti-Bermudian government the plan is well under way to create a Bermuda without the Bermudian.
    The people of the Cayman Island realize too late what a price they will pay for the elusive economic development of their country? They too were told what they should do to attract economic development and the result is now clear they are now out numbered by the foreign workers brought in; who now have the power to veto any move to protect the national interests of the people of the Cayman. Mr. Holdipp is but one rain drop of a flood which will the see the liberation of our country. He is an example of what we must do ad if need be the strong will carry the weak.

    • hmmm says:

      Try reading Larry’s Article.

      The Facts are the Facts.

      Your paranoia and scaremongering is damaging Bermuda every time you post.

  14. Boarders says:

    The drum should have been banging in 2002 when the PLop invented it!

  15. Go Fish says:

    There’s a preconception that all PRC holders actually want Status. Like many Bermudians, many PRCs can’t afford to retire in Bermuda, so why go to the expense of getting Status? They will continue to contribute to Bermuda society as workers, and when their work life is over, they’ll retire back in their home countries.

  16. somuchless says:

    John get back to work.

  17. Need Peace says:

    Be inspired Holder! We won’t let your stand be in vain. There will be more marches because we will not tolerate this OBA government winging it! Our voices will be heard! If you want to know about PRC’s, just ask Minister Fahy

    Bermudians are not COMPLEX thinkers…they are EMOTIONAL THINKERS ( for the most part)
