Frederick: Protest march is beginning of things to come

The February 28th protest march on Kingstown was the beginning of things to come, says Public Relations Officer of the New Democratic Party (NDP) Vynette Frederick.

Frederick, speaking at the NDP’s political rally last Saturday night at the Redemption Sharpes Playing Field hinted at a number of events set to take place here in the coming weeks.{{more}}

The Party has planned a Town Hall Meeting for March 26th at the NDP Headquarters, where they will continue discussing the issues affecting St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

On March 28th, the same day as the opening of the Rabacca Bridge, the NDP will be holding a prayer vigil in Kingstown, to coincide with the opening of the bridge.

Frederick said that the New Democratic Party is anticipating fresh elections in the near future, and that the party as well as supporters are just waiting on the date to be announced.

They were at the Redemption Sharpes Playing Field in support of NDP, Senator St. Claire Leacock, calling for parliamentary representative for the area Conrad Sayers to resign.

Also speaking at the meeting was Chairman of the NDP, Dr. Linton Lewis, who spoke on the abolition of the Police And Criminal Evidence Act (PACE), and the Integrity Legislation Bill which the opposition intends to introduce in the House of Parliament.

A moment of silence was held in memory of the late NDP General Secretary Kerwyn Morris who passed away last Wednesday, March 14.
