A group of protesters demonstrated outside Parliament today against the government’s DSH agreement.
Bertrand Fevrier, who described himself as the lead protester told the Times that today’s protest was “just the beginning.”
He estimated that today’s demonstration involved some 50 protesters.
Fevrier, who said he was from Vieux Fort, asserted that the DHS project would negatively affect many individuals in the south of the island.
He vowed that the project would be resisted.
“We will be marching from now until the end of the year”, he said.
Pressed for specifics on the planned intensification of the protest, Fevrier said: “That’s personal. You will see it and feel it”.
The Prime Minister was able to see the protest before going into the Parliament building, Fevrier said.
The US$2.6 billion Desert Star Holdings Limited (DSH) project for Saint Lucia covers the construction of a race course, a free trade zone, a shopping mall complex, marina and other facilities on 700 acres of land in the south of Saint Lucia.
