MSJ’s Vision for Local Government-
Our vision for Local Government is rooted in our philosophy of the need for fundamental change in the relations of power. Many people are amazed that for such a small country (just 1.3 million), we are unable to come together as a people with the common purpose of building a nation.
Furthermore, although we all sing the national anthem, so many of us do not feel that this country is ours. This is because decision making is always undertaken by a few, while the majority of the people do not have a say and feel like outsiders. The only way in which this could be changed is if power is shifted from a few to the many. This is our philosophy. And strong local government is an important way in which this could be achieved.
