    Does it require political partys to become force in GB for us to get our right? We existed without them till now and we did quite well. Look at what is happening, political activities, activists, killings, disruption and retaliation!
    We have very little and we can afford to lose nothing, therefore if we continue sliding down the road of politics that has almost destroyed the rest of the country .. we will face even more quicker demise because we are ill prepared.
    There are very strong ways to protest for one own rights, by making our forums strong and focused.
    Our people need to understand that when you take the help of a thug to help you, you must be ready to pay the thugs price!!! For us this price will be very high.
