‘We The People’ Plans To Continue St Jude Hospital Protest

- Advertisement -

We The People was formed following the initial protest action by Ms. Angella Alberti on 4th, May, 2022. This protest action by Ms. Alberti attracted widespread public attention and support. We The People was formed to help manage what had become an ongoing and expanded protest.

The focus of the protest action by Ms. Alberti which was embraced by We The People was to advocate for a change in Government policy towards a commitment for completion of the modern, “state of the art”, resilient St Jude Hospital structure started by the last Government and which was approximately 75% complete.

The St Jude Hospital protest which began on May 4th and continued in an expanded format since, has been peaceful in nature. There has been no recorded incident of disturbance or any unsavoury activity which gave cause for concern on the part of the respective authorities.

We are mindful of the heightened interest by many who are motivated by the logic of the need to complete the modern, “state of the art” St Jude Hospital facility started by the last Administration. This is indeed the sensible investment at this time which would serve the best long term interest of our nation and indeed the people of the south.

We The People over the past weeks has observed a strategic retreat and suspension of protest activity.

We have written to the police requesting approval for another protest activity on Sunday, 26th, June, 2022. We look forward to a timely response by the police in order to allow for proper planning and execution of our ongoing protest campaign.

We assure all concerned that we are committed to the exercise of our right to protest. We will notify public about the resumption of the protest campaign which we have planned for Sunday, 26th, June, 2022.

We are committed to advocating for completion of the modern, state of the art and resilient St Jude Hospital structure which was nearing completion when it was stopped. We will continue to claim our right to peaceful protest.

  1. When you sat your butt in Este office for 5 years getting contracts not once you protested about St Jude’s but now the gravy train has left the station you awage. Go and stop bobol people money to build and get an honest days work to do you leech.

  2. Why are we complaining? SLP knows we are poor destitute people deserving of mediocrity. The Chastanet administration’s state of the art hospital was above our class so SLP decided that we should not aspire above our station. Stupid politicians.

  3. Ask Chastanet what did he do with the 6 hundred million dollars he borrowed. Why couldn’t he finish St. Jude?

  4. ” WE THE PEOPLE ” I salute you and I’m proud of you. The people in the South, if not all the people of St. Lucia should rise up in protest, the Women in the South should all rise up and tell these MEN in the Government, you’ve had enough of their nonsense, time to complete the new St. Jude Hospital. Shame on Kenny & Jn Baptist for sitting by and allowing the other two conspirators to rule over them. Common Kenny I always thought you were a man of greater integrity, you are allowing those with vendetta to dictate to you? shame on you at V/Fort Nth. your constituency people should give you an advise; the two Castries new comers are making a mockery of you. The Lord above can only take so much, don’t get Him angry, don’t let His poor and sick have to suffer.

  5. Black people can’t create anything for them selves eh. Why is it that everywhere we roam, the African style of corrup governance and suffering follows.
