This petition had 375 supporters
Strategic Goals of the ORANGE MOVEMENT
Our First Priority objective, is to convince the St. Maarten Parliament, via Article 91 of our Constitution, to call a Referendum for a People’s Opinion on the re-evaluation of St. Maarten’s Status within the Kingdom.
Our second objective, should the first priority be unsuccessful, is to convince the Kingdom Partners via Article 51 of the Kingdom Charter, to pressure the St. Maarten Parliament to call the above noted Referendum.
Summary of the Three Referendum Options
1. Option A – Current Status within the Kingdom
Option A agrees with the current application of Autonomy by the leadership of the St. Maarten Government (which is essentially a non-democratic governance by an oligarchy of limited families).
2. Option B – Status Independence
Option B seeks full Independence of St. Maarten, with all of the fiscal, structural, diplomatic, and logistical responsibilities this status would require.
3. Option C – Status Netherlands
Option C seeks to re-integrate St. Maarten into the Netherlands, as a form of ‘Caribische Provincie’ model, including the BES Island municipalities and local-elected representation, including the Netherlands-modeled social benefits, administration, and logistical responsibilities this status would require.
