SLP Says Saint Lucian Lives Matter Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Press Release:- Last night, Prime Minister Allen Chastanet said on national television for all to hear, “Because there’s no point in saving people if in fact their livelihoods are being affected.”

This is an unwitting revelation of who Chastanet really is and what he truly believes.

Allen Chastanet is a man concerned with his political power, his friends and his family.

He does not have a heart for ordinary people and their struggles.

The Christian faith teaches us that all people have value and that the poor are blessed.

The fact of the matter is, the UWP government has failed Saint Lucians during COVID-19.

The UWP failed Saint Lucians on the health crisis. We are yet to hear anything about a vaccine. We were slow to institute testing and compared to our neighbors in Grenada, St. Vincent & the Grenadines and St. Kitts & Nevis, we have had more cases and more deaths.

The UWP also failed on the economic crisis.

Instead of instituting a social safety net that gave unemployed Saint Lucians financial assistance of various kinds, the UWP did not have a heart for the people and provided no relief even though we had the highest unemployment in the entire region resultant from COVID-19.

The SLP’s plan is to provide unemployment assistance for those who have lost their jobs because of the pandemic, including food and financial support to see people through.

We would also dramatically ramp up our testing so that we can safely welcome tourists back to our shores, stimulating the economy and keeping Saint Lucians safe.
