Opposition leader Philip J. Pierre has declared that the wind of change can be felt moving across this nation.
“More and more St. Lucians are rising up to express their frustration with this current administration’s incompetence, consistent failures, blatant corruption and undemocratic practices,” he stated.
The Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) leader made the comments on the official Facebook page of the party on Tuesday.
Tuesday was the day when members of the Saint Lucia National Trust (SLNT) and their supporters gathered for a second time in about a week outside parliament to make their presence felt, over a government decision to demolish the Royal Gaol in Castries.
The Trust has described the demolition of the building of ‘immense historic value’ as a ‘dangerous precedent’.
The organisation accused the Allen Chastanet administration of reneging on a legally binding agreement .
“Philip J. Pierre recalled that as he walked into the gates of Parliament, many individuals were present and unafraid to showcase your disappointment in the administration.
” Do not relent! Continue to stand firm. Real change can only take place when we forgo silence and maintain the resistance together,” he urged.
