As Dr Wayne Kublalsingh's friends and colleagues, we share a deep concern for his health and well-being on the 12th day of his hunger strike and hope for a speedy resolution.
Having known and worked with Dr Kublalsingh for years, we are inspired by his relentless struggle for a transparent and responsible style of governance and for environmentally sustainable development.
It is our hope that Dr Kublalsingh's current protest, unprecedented in the history of this nation, generates open and productive discussions on democracy, environment and social justice.
His sacrifice reminds us of the importance of constructive dialogue, especially around difficult and controversial political decisions.
