Saint Vincent Labour Party Democracy in Review

Submitted by Nathan ‘Jolly’ Green Communism, Marxism, and 21st Century Socialism are anti-Democratic.

Submitted by Nathan ‘Jolly’ Green It is ‘A’ typical for left-wing leaders, more so those with Marxist tendencies to use emotive projects to stay in power.
