The latest crop of Young PAMITES made their public debut this past Sunday at PAM Headquarters, as part of the People’s Action Movement “On the Road to Victory” Special Convention. The enthusiasm and intelligence of PAM youth were demonstrated in a spectacular and exciting 15 minute presentation, titled a “A Golden Future with PAM”. The pamites featured onstage included Cheraina Warner, Kevaughn Browne, Akila Browne,Taturah Byron and Dion Browne, all students of the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College.
The well-received presentation included a series of dramatic monologues and a theatrical poem culminating in an impressive video presentation. The Young PAMITES highlighted the major issues that are particular hardships for the young people of today, in the original and thought-provoking presentation. They expressed their concerns about crime, education, land, unemployment and electricity in humorous yet heart-rending ways, motivating unrestricted audience interaction and participation. The very appreciative crowd of hundreds in attendance gave the student PAMITES a minute-long standing ovation with calls for an encore performance.
“It was truly a memorable , thought-provoking and impactful presentation by the young people,” said the Hon. Shawn K. Richards deputy political leader of the People’s Action Movement. ” The newest PAMITES, all hailing from the CFB College, are further testament to the vibrancy of the party’s youth and their commitment to purposeful youth development in the nation as a whole,” Richards continued.
The group of students all of whom attend the CFB College have come together to form another sub-group of the National Young Pamites. The People’s Action Movement Young Pamites comprises the National Group along with several sub-groups including the Pamites groups from Constituencies #1 thru to Constituency #8, the Young Energized Core, Youths 4 Change and now the most recent group of CFBC students.
