A petition to lobby the Government to
implement urgent measures to regulate
the sale and use of fireworks is gaining
support and will be delivered to Prime
Minister Keith Rowley in the coming
For thousands around T&T, ringing in
the New Year and other public holidays,
such as Divali and Eid-ul-Fitr, the booming
sound of fireworks has become the norm
but the ill effects have left many traumatised,
south-based activist Josephine Ache said.
Since the concerns of her family and
members of her Facebook group page, titled,
Regulating The Use of Fireworks in Trinidad
& Tobago, gained national attention, Ache
said signatories to the petition increased
from 100 on January 1 to 2,480, yesterday.
Describing the response as "positively
overwhelming," she said she originally set
a target of 4,000 signatories but with
increasing support, it was suggested that
she consider setting a higher goal.
"Never in my wildest dreams could I ever
have imagined I would have received the
type of, not only response, but support from
my fellow T&T nationals who themselves
have been negatively affected by this said
issue," Ache said.
The group s request is not necessarily to
ban fireworks but rather to ban the unreg-
ulated sale and use of fireworks by the gen-
eral citizenry. She said the laws relating to
fireworks should also be enforced but were
conveniently ignored by the authorities.
"My main objective is to get our Gov-
ernment to not only amend our present
legislation in the vein that we have solid
laws that can at all times be properly
enforced by the respective authorities, as
well as perhaps encourage the importation
of safer devices that are not only safer for
civilian use but more importantly, safer for
She said gunshots being masked by the
fireworks have also led to the innocent deaths
of six-year-old Jodel Ramnath and a grand-
mother, Alvina Warner, 68, when they
stepped out of their Beetham Gardens, Port-
of-Spain, homes to watch fireworks on New
Year s morning.
Through research and discussions with
others affected by fireworks, she said it was
found that the negative effects experienced
included sleep deprivation, anxiety attacks,
property damage, personal injury, injury to
pets, loss of pets, air pollution and damage
She said babies eardrums were not fully
developed and the loud noise could damage
their hearing. She said the elderly in society
were left terrified, with her mother almost
suffering a heart attack.
"To those using fireworks indiscriminately
in our society, I would appeal to them to
have a heart and to do unto others as you
would have them do unto you."
Ache said her group was planning a
peaceful demonstration in Port-of-Spain
at the date to be announced after Carnival.
This is to raise further awareness of its cause
with the aim of reaching more groups and
people affected by fireworks.
