Pierre: SLP stronger than ever

Pierre: SLP stronger than ever

The Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) is back and stronger than ever, the leader of the party, Philip J. Pierre, told labour supporters last night during a public meeting on the Castries Market steps.

“They said labour is dead, that labour is afraid and labour will never rise again,” Pierre said.

He told SLP supporters that they have faced victimisation and the vindictiveness of what he described as the United Wreckers of the Poor, to come out in their hundreds in Vieux Fort where the SLP recently held a public meeting and on the Castries Market steps Sunday night, to show that they stand behind the SLP.

“I thank you for that – I thank you, the people of labour,” Pierre said.

He also expressed gratitude to SLP supporters for electing six members of the party in the last general elections.

Pierre spoke of the performance of the SLP parliamentarians, asserting that members of  the ruling United Workers Party (UWP) are the ones who are afraid now.

“Anytime we try to speak, they try to shut us up,” he declared.

Pierre said the SLP accepted that people voted for a change.

He stated that the party believes in democracy and the freedom of an individual’s vote.

“We said that we will respect the will of the people. But respecting the will of the people does not mean that you must victimise people. Respecting the will of the people does not mean that you must disrespect the constitution of Saint Lucia. Respecting the will of the people does not mean that you must sell passports as if passports were in a lottery,” the SLP leader declared.

Pierre said the SLP will not allow the government to do what it wants in this country.

“We will stand up against them and we will fight against them anytime they are doing what is wrong for the people of Saint Lucia,” he asserted.

    20 years in opposition, they have nobody for Prime minister yet, Pip is only getting a 3 year ride as leader, and Hillaire is not Prime minister material.

    Who cares about SLP, UWP OR XYZ…how about Saint Lucia first? The tribal politics must end, we are all in the same boat, and we don’t know where the hell we’re going?

      “666” you could not have expressed my sentiments any better!

      These so called Politicians (Red,Yellow,Green…) are stifling St Lucia’s progression.

      I think it’s time for a Coalition Government.

      At this stage of your life white or black should not be a great factor in your daily way of life. You should be comfortable in your skin. You sound like the KKK. Their actions mean they are afraid of something
      You bringing up white man (who is a Lucian) does not address any of the issues facing St Lucia. KENNY is of the same complexion.
      See beauty beyond colour and stand like a man not a slave.
