Apology demanded from Allen Chastanet and Guy Joseph over Sarah’s treatment

Apology demanded from Allen Chastanet and Guy Joseph over Sarah’s treatment

CASTRIES, SAINT LUCIA, Monday, October 26, 2015. Former Members of the United Workers Party Women’s Arm strongly condemn statements made by the Hon. Guy Joseph at a public meeting in Micoud North on October 20, 2015 and subsequent chanting by incensed UWP supporters during the protest march on Thursday October 22, 2015.

Mr. Joseph launched a strong verbal attack on Mrs. Flood-Beaubrun for her courage and decisiveness to stand against Mr. Allen Chastanet for the position of Political Leader in the upcoming Convention.

Mr. Joseph’s delivery incensed the supporters and they too followed suit, casting derogatory remarks at Mrs. Flood-Beaubrun whilst she stood in the crowd.  The political leader Mr. Allen Chastanet and Leader of the Opposition, Hon Dr. Gale T. C. Rigobert openly endorsed Mr. Joseph’s behavior by applauding his every word.

Just two days later, Mrs. Flood-Beaubrun joined the UWP organized march to support the UWP and show her disappointment in the manner the St Lucia Labour Party has managed the affairs of our country.

A certain section of the protesters, who surrounded Mr. Chastanet at the front of the march, and were, clearly within his hearing, greeted Mrs. Flood-Beaubrun with chants of “We want Chastanet & Sarah Must Go”.

Mrs. Sarah Flood-Beaubrun is a Lawyer by Profession, former Two Term Parliamentary Representative for Castries Central, Former Speaker of the House of Assembly and Former Deputy Ambassador to the United Nations General Assembly and now Nominee for Political Leader of the United Workers Party.

To this end we are demanding a public apology from the current Political Leader of the United Workers Party Mr. Allen Chastanet, Parliamentary Representative for Castries South East, Hon. Guy Joseph, Leader of the Parliamentary Opposition and Parliamentary Representative for Micoud North Hon. Gale T. C. Rigobert and March promoter in Chief Mrs. Nancy Charles

We urge all women to stand and demand respect for women who offer  to serve; and condemn in the strongest terms, persons and organizations that make any deliberate attempt at undermining women’s involvement in national development. We want to assure Mrs. Flood-Beaubrun of our full support in her quest to become the Political Leader of the United Workers Party.

    During his years of selfless service for St Lucia John Compton took tons of abuse from his political opponents. From attacks on his vehicle to the throwing of feces at his political platform. It was part of what he knew was the viciousness of St Lucian politics.

    He turned the other cheek and never lost the focus of the advancement of St Lucia.
    Now we have the abuse of another Micoud person from political opponents.
    Like Sir John, Sarah had turned the other cheek and focuses on what it good for St Lucia.

    We cannot afford to have a cabal with no support with the voters of St Lucia continue to divide a great party for the ego of one person and his acolytes.

    Bram bram should be able to beat Kenny at elections but Chastanet’s own polls show him losing at least 12 seats to the SLP. St Lucia cannot afford this.

    In as much as i like Allen, I favour Sarah over him. Saint Lucians would be too proud to have their first Female Prime Minister, especially she from Micoud South.

    I fail to understand why people feel it necessary to make all issues gender related. Would it have been ok if Sarah flood was a man? People are people and lets stop making things all about gender, race, sexual orientation, class etc.etc. These are my comments as a woman who does not need to be constantly demanding “special treatment”.
