  1. This is what we have reduce our selves to. To become part of an organization check list. This is why our leaders are so neglectful and portray a high degree of incompetence, for the obvious reasons be part of an organization who is absolutely no worthy to the people of such nation and only received a small pay check once every 5 yrs of assistance in the narrative aspect but it goes to the politician pocket before it ever reaches it purpose. that is if it ever reaches!

  2. When will we stop growing our food with toxic chemicals, Round up, and Touch down, gramazone are used like water . There are soooooooooooo many cases of Cancer NOW, and has been noted it is the NUMBER ONE cause of death in women. Can you connect the dots!!! These chemicals are in our food and water. Take it off the market, so Lucians can live to see their older age.

  3. The only St. Lucians benefitting from this junket were the Minister of Health and the Chief Medical Officer (one of the perks for helping Big Pharma to attain US$60 BILLION in profits from their useless gene therapy against Covid-19, so far)! They were what would be called a “cheap date” in the US!

    There were no health benefits for the citizens of this world. Instead, the rules-based western world order (which wants to supplant international law) led by the empire of lies, tried to strong-arm weak government health ministers in attendance, to cede their political authority to the WHO, with regards to pandemics. They tried to gain the same influence they possess in the UN, which has already (some say always) been heavily corrupted by the US.

    The western-led cabal also failed to get get more than half the attending representatives to support the resolution submitted by the Nazis of Ukraine (only 88 of 183 members sided with Ukraine; will the dupes representing St. Lucia say how they voted?). This cabal mounted a noisy campaign at the 75th World Health Assembly to make this, as much as possible, into an anti-Russian assembly, in a desperate effort to head-off the impending revelations from Russia of the US bio-warfare labs in Ukraine and the rest of eastern Europe.

  4. Shame on the ministry of health in st lucia.. We are living in the middle of a chicken farm in Upper Augier after the 357 disco.. we are fed up with this nuissance. Shame on you all for not taking the health of the public into consideration.

    This is health also. Do something about it.
