Isn't it strange that that the government has such a public "education" campaign about NIDS and NIRA yet so little about how it will be funded? Allow me to remind you that Jamaicans will pay for it. The taxpayers alive now,, their children and maybe their children after that.
That is a big enough problem on it's own but that is just the price of admission. To stay for the show that is Jamaica after the NIDS Act 2017, you will have to pay for that with your personal information, your right to maintain your privacy within reason and give up freedom from discrimination. And they promise, oh they promise, for all of that, you will be safe from fraud, corruption and the utter struggle of having multiple forms of Identification.
Things get stranger, they insist that you have already given your information to this agency, or that ministry. Do not be fooled. Your parents chose to get you a birth certificate. You chose to get a TRN. You have a right to vote for your government. You decided that a driver's license was necessary. You wanted a passport when the time was right. For every choice the pro's and the con's were weighed and then judged.
In the end, we are our choices. The mandatory clause of NIDS is the absence of choice.
Protect your choices and fight for you.
Say No to NIDS!
