‘We Are Ready’ – UWP Announces Saint Lucia Rescue Mission


The opposition United Workers Party (UWP) declared at a public meeting in Vieux Fort on Saturday that it was on a Saint Lucia rescue mission and ready for the task.

The public meeting followed an anti-government protest march.

“The task at hand is a serious one. It is a rescue mission that we are on. It is a mission to rescue Saint Lucia from the most reckless and careless government that has ever governed this country,” UWP Deputy Political Leader Guy Joseph asserted.

He said he was proud of the attendance at the event.

“We applied early enough, and we got approval late enough. But you are here, ” the former Castries South East MP told the crowd at the Cantonment playing field.

He declared nothing would stop the opposition march, which he described as ‘the smaller one.’

However, he disclosed that ‘the bigger one’ is coming.

“And approval or no approval, we are coming,” Joseph told his audience.

It was an apparent reference to plans for a protest march in Castries.

“You must remember that back in 2011, permission was not granted to the Labour Party, but they went right to the gate of St. Jude led by Kenny Anthony, Moses Jn Baptiste, and Alva Baptiste, and they had a meeting at the gate of St. Jude,” the former Economic Development Minister stated.

Joseph declared that Vieux Fort had suffered under the Saint Lucia Labour Party and Anthony as former Prime Minister and Vieux Fort South MP.

  1. Can’t y’all see lucians not buying y’all lies and has disqualified this crop of UWP leaders from ever ruling St. Lucia again.
    Don’t be fooled by a party base that will support anyone or anything the party offers.
    Thankfully this base is dwindling day by day because of the corrupt ppl that run UWP.

  2. Both the parties should come up with a “blue print” of how they would make St. Lucia great and the time line they would need to achieve that goal. I request citizens to get ready to help the nation instead of pointing fingers at everyone.

  3. They crucified Jessus Christ
    I’ll never forget, no way
    They sold Marcus Garvey for rice, ooh
    I’ll never forget, no way
    They turned their backs on Paul Bogle, hey, hey
    So don’t you forget, no you
    Who you are and where you stand in the struggle

    They got so much things to say right now
    They got so much things to say
    They got so much things to say right (now)
    They got so much things to say
    Hey, but I’ll never forget, no way

  4. Guy of all people should shut about St Judes he said it himself if he dosent complete St Judes he should shut up when the topic of St Judes come up a talk show and in Soufriere at a flambeau political meeting if we don’t complete St Judes we should no be re-elected

  5. This is just political gimmick. UWP is just gas lighting. Hope Lucian’s are not gullible to fall for this propaganda. St Lucia is not in a crisis by any stretch of the imagination to require UWP rescue. UWP is just in desperation for political power to enrich themselves and their elite supporters at the expense of working class, poor and elderly St.Lucisns.
