Vieux Fort South UWP Branch Issues Rallying Call Ahead Of National Protest


The Vieux Fort South UWP Branch calls on all residents and civil society organizations in Vieux Fort and neighboring communities to support and participate in the scheduled national protest march set for this Saturday, 14th, October, 2023.

The main focus of this protest is the misguided decision of the Government of St Lucia to abandon completion of the modern resilient and “State of the Art” structure for location of St. Jude Hospital in favor of returning to an 80 year old derelict building complex which is characterized by numerous structural problems.

A special appeal goes out to the Vieux Fort Concerned Citizens Coalition for Change (4Cs) to stand-up and be counted; to reclaim their one vociferous voice at this time.

The people of Vieux Fort need a “Concerned Citizens Group” now more than ever.

An examination of the 4Cs Facebook page revealed the last post from the group was dated 19th, April, 2023, an address from the Parliamentary Representative on the troubling crime problem in Vieux Fort.

We call on the Vieux Fort Concerned Citizens Coalition for Change to wake up from its slumber.

This is a rallying call to the residents of Vieux Fort and surrounding communities and civil society groups to join the national protest march on Saturday, 14th October.

Vieux Fort has been neglected for too long. Enough is enough.

The event begins at 3:30pm. Assembly point is the entrance near the Spartans Medical University.

  1. UWP begged for people to come out to support and participate in the scheduled protest march. Begged. Like a d@&. 不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不不

  2. In vieux fort all they do is smoke cocaine, and steal food in the farmers garden young boys from the age of 14 but they will be dealt with so keep stealing macarbo and plantain yams will be good as from next month

  3. Some positive voice must be heard rather than that of Guns. Let the people have their fun for a change – any change must be good for V/Fort.
    Lord, hear our Prayer.

  4. Unbelievable under Uwp. After all i expected protest around something else more meaningful. They are protesting against the own mess they created with no accountability.
    I agree sometimes it necessary to protest against your own actions at such magnitude of transparency
    Chas are there any more hoses in the DSH barn that you can take with your followers this afternoon?

  5. UWP needs new energies, we are tired of Guy, Dominic and the rest. Bring in new blood.
    Also tell us about the new policies you have in place. Tell us about what you all have for teachers, pensioners and the rest.
