Live Video Replay: ‘Generation Next’ Town Hall

June 22, 2016

[Updated] Generation Next is holding Youth Town Hall Meeting this evening [June 22] in the Dr. E.F Gordon Hall at the Bermuda Industrial Union building, with the speakers to include former Parliamentarian John Barritt, Destinee Taylor, Aminah Simmons, Eron Hill, and others.

Eron Hill previously said, “We believe that it has become overwhelmingly important, that young people recognise both the importance in their vote and the opportunity to secure their future by voting. Notwithstanding voting being one of the centre piece topics, we also recognise the political turmoil in Bermuda and the lack of contribution given by young people.”

“It is often said, that decisions are made in the best interest for the future and sustainability of Bermuda, yet no consultation has been established with the future of Bermuda – the young people.”

Update: 80-minute replay of the live video:

    Impressive initiative by some of our young voters.

    I would be very interested in Mr. Hill’s definition of community consultation and if it involves the opportunity for all our youth to participate – something our current political leaders don’t do.

    It will also be interesting to see how many young people participate in the non-binding referendum tomorrow. They may just see through the false optics of this very expensive polling exercise.

    ………………the reason the youth are disengaged from politics is quite simple, the Parliamentary system and partisan style politics which comes out of it are broken and not representative of who they are! Until such time that we replace it with something that is progressive and truly representative of the people, the electorate will continue to disengage. If politicians are truly concerned about the state of politics on this Island and what the people think they will start the process of consultation and reform post haste!
