Chastanet Appeals To Saint Lucians To Put Differences Aside

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has appealed to Saint Lucians to put their differences aside as this country battles the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am appealing to everyone to please put our differences aside. Let us work together and support one another,” he urged Friday in a post on his official Facebook page.

“I want to remind every Saint Lucian that sadly, this is a battle that we will be fighting alone. Everyone else is fighting their own battle. Everyone else has closed down their borders. Everyone is dealing with their own problems,” Chastanet declared.

He asserted that the only persons we can look to solving this problem is ourselves.

“We are not going to make it through this if we keep fighting each other,” the PM stated.

“Let us be disciplined, practice self isolation especially when we go out in public. It is for our own safety and that of our families,” Chastanet advised.

Saint Lucia is currently under a 24-hour curfew imposed under a state of emergency designed to halt the spread of COVID-19.


  1. Well said Minister. Please members of carbinet set the example. Our people are watching, listening and acting based on your actions. Stop fighting each other.

    • Let us start the coming together by asking Guy to apologise for all the direct awards he gave, ask Gale to publicly agree to stop giving her brother and uncle all the direct awards for building a reparing school, tell Teo Arhkim to give us back our millions, tell Sandals to repay its taxes, apologise for calling us barking dogs and jackasses, and for saying 43% of our people only have preschool education. Tell us how much CIP money we have, how much have been used and for what.Do these things and we will be one big family.

  2. We are an unruly people. It’s Friday Night and there will be those who will not adhere to governance they will be up to their usual antics in one and another yards. Forget places like Marchland and Bruceville you can’t talk to those youths they still hanging out. All the police can do is chase people off the streets but they can’t go into people’s yard and ask what are you doing without due diligence so containment efforts will be uphill. They can’t close the airport forever and when they open it there be a flood of folks who want to come home this will result in the second coming of The Corona Virus to our shores in a devastating wave. I have read of the half handful of St Lucians that have passed away over seas from corona. Condolences to the families

    • Mr. Coco(roach) (flow )(cooyon), (1) How are you and the PM different? Answer: he is white and you are black. (2) What you and the PM have in common? Answer: You both are not so bright. But truth be told, PM slightly better than you. Now that’s because of your drunkenness combined with you stupidity.

  3. Talk doesn’t feed hungry people..
    Words doesn’t fill your stomach.
    People only fight if they are hungry and can’t feed their families.
    You’d act the same if you was you.
    People don’t want to fight unnecessary.
    Use your leadership to organise something safe and effective.
    Stop this nonsense and get real with the ordinary people of St Lucia.
    Give practical and safe guidelines.
    Feed your citizens.
    Like you feed yourself.
    It’s that simple.
