Remove the Human Infestation

 
Portland Rock Expedition, Pedro Cays, Jamaica 

Pedro Cays, are four small, flat (2 to 5 metres high), low-lying and mostly uninhabited cays, lie about midway along the southern edge of the eastern half of Pedro Bank. The Middle Cay was captured by 400 to 500 people as a fishing outpost, of which about 150 are “women”. I have been told the place have a make shift bar and a Go-Go club, in one interview a man describe the place as being filled with prostitutes and nightly merriment. These people are just the nastiest most disgusting set of people I have ever seen, they have converted a once beautiful island into a shanty town, filled with shacks as they live and eat among their own waste and filth, they pay no taxes, most are not licensed fishermen but demand that the Government spend tax payers money to improve their living conditions. Among the health and environment issues at the Pedro Cays are the absence of running water, a lack of toilet facilities and a rapidly increasing garbage dump but they have bars, Go-Go club, whores and nightly merriment? WTF!!!

Garbage and Filth!
I read that during a conversation between the Jamaica Environment Trust and the representatives of the squatters, the trust outline some possible solution with involves new Rules and Regulations as to how Pedro cays should be used. The poor and downtrodden hates Rules and Regulation, they do not like it and are not afraid to tell anyone who dare propose any Rules and Regulation where they can stick it.

Disgusting Animals!!

If the people who live over there have no sense of decency, not even the basic concept of picking up after themselves, much less making sure their surroundings are clean and tidy then throwing money at it, is like throwing pearls before nasty disgusting swines, It will only become a sink hole for money. Yes basic service is required but I would prefer to remove the Human Infestation, they are like a virus and remove their shacks and return the area to the wild as wild animals have more respect for nature, themselves and their surroundings.

Poor Masked Booby bird trying to hatch her eggs amid them filth!!

When people discuss "Invasive Species" they typically mean plants and animals that are introduced to an area and wipe out resident species and upset the ecosystem. It never occurs to people that HUMANS are also an invasive species and it does not get any more invasive than them nasty people!

"I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure."

Might as well the sea level rise and reclaim the Cays

This is how I think this small Island should look:
Miskito Cays Nicaragua


Instead this is how Middle Cay look today:
Rundown Shanty town Shacks

People who created the filthy conditions and living amongst it!!!

"And Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Roger Clarke returned from their visit to the Pedro Cays said he was buoyed by the residents' apparent willingness to help solve the problem…

In addition to the absence of running water, residents have had to contend with poor and inadequate toilet facilities that have prompted them to designate an area on the tiny island to pass urine and faeces. At the same time, they have also done battle with an increasing garbage dump, which some among them have said has to be burnt each night to prevent it reaching their doors."

  1. Hello there,

    I am in agreement with most of what is here but to go the route of "nasty people" is offensive, especially because there is a picture with people's faces in it. Nasty conditions, yes; nasty practices, yes. Show the garbage, the faeces etc., but don't show pics of the people and say that - very very offensive.

  2. I am told I should not use the term "Nasty People" to describe the people who CREATED the filthy conditions and living amongst it. So I shall now describe them as “The People who CREATED the filthy conditions and living amongst it”.... Simply because they are!.... What they did to that island and the wild life is very very offensive... How can one create such filthy conditions and live amongst it?... They do not deserve an ounce of respect until they start cleaning up after themselves and properly dispose of their waste... Until then I will call them what I like...
