The “Our Land Matters” initiative is informing the general public of their signature drive which will be held on Saturday September 10, 2016 from 10 am to 14:00 pm at Melly’s bar & restaurant in French Quarter. The Signature ledger books will be out for those willing to manually sign. “Our Land Matters” is a movement started by the Beauperthuy’s of St. Martin / St. Maarten as a means to safeguard the property rights of St. Martin / St. Maarten from the French Colonial powers. Thus far our petition for the people of St. Martin / St. Maarten to join in the plight of safeguarding the rights of the people has received a tremendous response of over 1000 online signatures. On behalf of the “Our Land Matters” movement we would like to thank all that have contributed to date and further invite the people of St. Martin / St. Maarten to join in preserving what’s left of our paradise.
