St Lucia’s Opposition Leader Threatens Continued Street Protests Against The Government

The Political leader of the Opposition, St Lucia Labour Party has vowed continued street demonstrations in response to the policies of the Allen Chastanet administration.

Phillip J Pierre was speaking at a rally on the Castries market steps Wednesday following a mass public protest in the city.

He declared that the country was in trouble and it must be saved.

“Tonight is the first step,” Pierre told the crowd. “We are saying to the government, if you do not listen we are going to march again. If you do not listen we are going to march again. And if you do not listen we are going to march again and again and again.”

Pierre said the scores of people who came out onto the streets had sent a message to the government that they will not be allowed “to do what they want in this country.”

He said the people will decide and let the Labour Party know when next they want to take to the streets, adding that the people will lead and the party will follow.
