On behalf of the leadership, executive and membership of the United Progressive Party, we wish all nationals, at home and abroad, and those who have come to make their home among us, a very happy Independence 40!
Like last year, the coronavirus pandemic has restricted our celebrations, and in the interest of safety, we encourage everyone to respect and practice the regulations that are now in place.
However, there need be no restriction on the thanksgiving we express to almighty God who has brought us over the often rocky road of selfdetermination. Our patriotism and the fierce feelings of pride and belonging it generates need not be limited today as we sing our nation-building songs, wear our national dress, fly our flag, eat and drink our signature
foods, and allow ourselves to embrace the festive spirit of this occasion.
It has been a tough year for most of us as unemployment, business closures, illness, and death have plagued us since March 2020. As a nation, it has been a time of testing of our ingenuity, our tenacity, and our resilience; however, we are confident that, together, we will not simply endure, but come out of this a stronger people, a people who understand that independence means relying on ourselves first.
We can do better! So be assured that our party is observing. consulting, and working to develop partnerships and plans for restoring Antigua and Barbuda to the standing it once enjoyed, and for advancing the interests of the people in the fair, democratic, and
collaborative manner for which we are known.
We believe that good governance and bluer skies are ahead; and the United Progressive Party is committed, with your help, to building – for all of us – a true nation, brave and free.
May God bless and redeem Antigua and Barbuda. Stay safe!
Hon. Jamale Pringle
