Protesting Marigot residents say they will not back down

Protesters set fire to debris on the Marigot main road on Monday

Marigot today is experiencing one of fiercest protest since residents there have been demanding electoral reform before general elections.

On Tuesday, residents blocked roads and burnt tires, demonstrating their distaste with the sitting government’s decision to go to the polls on December 06th without voter I.D Cards and a cleansed list.

Marigot resident and brother of the Opposition Leader, Brian Linton, told the media this morning that villagers are not backing down.

This is the second day that Marigot residents have been protesting, braving teargas, barricades and bullets.

“We have police shooting live ammunition and the people of Marigot continue to stand and resist oppression and we want to call everybody to join the protest…” Linton said.

Linton said the protest is simply trying to push for a peaceful resolution to the residents’ demands.

“We are demanding free and fair election, reform, and a clean voters list in the first instance,” he explained.

Furthermore, Linton said the protest is also leaning towards the need for righteousness and justice.

“The young people who are in the struggle are unemployed youths who are qualified, who see a need for change and they have decided to stand up against all the police bullets and teargas,” he said.

Meantime, Psychiatrist Dr. Griffin Benjamin, a native of neighbouring Wesley, is supporting the protest, saying that the time has come for the people to fight for their rights.

“You have to fight your way into power. I would be disappointed if Dominicans don’t stand up today, tomorrow and the other days,” he said.

Benjamin said residents are fighting against a powerful force, mainly built on money.

“If a force is pushing against you and that force has millions of dollars and you just have your natural energy and your fight, then you can beat that force,” he added.

Benjamin said the prime minister is a “savage and as he is going out, he becomes this dangerous animal”.

He said what is happening in Marigot is not violence but resistance.

“Statesmanship has gone out the window completely, so you must engage them. We need people who are willing to lay on the roads and say no bus passing,” he added.

Looking back to when Roosevelt Skerrit took up office, Benjamin said the Dominica Labour Party died with its former leader Rosie Douglas.

“This one who took over the party [Roosevelt Skerrit] is a vicious character,” Benjamin said.

Benjamin said Skerrit has been able to destroy Dominica “in such a short time.”

“He’s aged in fifteen years. He’s no longer the young man who you can give a chance. He’s an old man who is desperate to hold on to power and to live a legacy that Dominicans cannot identify with,” he lamented.

The psychiatrist said he is also concerned about the mental stability of the prime minister.

Benjamin who has been a psychiatrist for over thirty years said he was always against the appointment of Skerrit as prime minister.

“In 2004 I stood up against him being prime minister. I was kicked out of his house when I said you are not going to head Dominica in any way shape or form,” he revealed.

However, Benjamin said Skerrit rose to power in an undemocratic manner.

“He has destroyed lives of innocent men and women. His intentions were clear from the beginning. It was for him and who he decided are loyal to him. Just challenging him made you a disloyal member of the party,” Benjamin explained.

Benjamin is also predicting a win for the United Workers Party at the upcoming general elections.

    When you act like animals don’t be surprised when you get treated like animals. All you love talking about Rosa parks and Dr king to back up your actions. Burning rubbish in the street is not peaceful. They want noticing. Real change happens in court, in meetings , in offices. When you burn down the island you get NOTHING.

      Elizabeth, if you had any commonsense; if you had the ability to read and understand peoples opinions, you would understand what we wrote in regards to the article.
      Because you are so shallow, you can only understand the nastiness, the garbage that develop in your own mind!
      And by the way, be careful what you say about Griffin Benjamin, because if you venture; if you attack him, you will have to deal with me!
      Just be reminded, his grandmother, his late father mother the late was the biological aunt of yours truly, she had a surname “Telemaque.”He might be the one to fixed your mentally derange head!
      He might be the one to return Roosevelt head to normalcy after the election is over.
      Elizabeth, Dominica is burning, it is about to implode, if you are so interested in the welfare of your country rather than a corrupted crook that black wet two head rat, that little mouse you would advise the rat Roosevelt to resign and save the country.

    “Meantime, Psychiatrist Dr. Griffin Benjamin–is supporting the protest,– for the people to fight–.”

    Am I to believe that this man is treating the mental health of people in Dominica; someone who suggests that “You have to fight your way into power”?

    Benjamin said the prime minister is a “savage and as he is going out, he becomes this dangerous animal”

    My God! My God! Is this man listening to himself?

    PM Skerrit is a man with great humility, a man who humbled enough to shed tears on a World medium, because of the ravaged effect of a category 5 hurricane, against his Nation. And yet a so-called psychiatrist’s diagnosis describes his mind as being a “savage” and a “dangerous animal”?

    If that man can conclude with diagnosis against the Prime Minister, how does he decide when a person is really mentally ill?

    Or is he one of those truly “mad” and “insane”; so much to the point that he wasn’t able to search his mind before speaking?

    “He said what is happening in Marigot is not violence but resistance”.

    How can you use “resistance” to condone the conduct of those people, resistance against what–the Law of the Nation?

    “Benjamin said the Dominica Labour Party died with its former leader Rosie Douglas.”

    And yet God allowed a plague of death to reign over His God-fearing people for 20 years, and the majority of the Nation are contented with that plague of the death, “a vicious character”, who rules over them; and on December 06, they will choose him again?

    “In 2004 I stood up against him being prime minister. I was kicked out of his house when I said you are not going to head Dominica in any way shape or form,”

    There it is! You have lived with “vicious hatred” against PM Skerrit, beyond the time of his reign as the Prime Minister of our Nation. How coward of you, to use another deplorable conduct to spill out your gust against him?

    I repeat it, COWARD!

    @The Truth Be Told, “I know this PM has spiritual discernment, HE prays too, so Jehovah will always guide him.”

    Yes indeed, my friend, I am also one who is blessed with profound “spiritual discernment” and I know what you are saying about PM Skerrit. I now that God did not attach me to the Life of that man for no reason at all, I am not interested in politics.

    It is not by the minds of the majority of the Nation, that PM Skerrit has been the Primary Authority in Dominica, it is by the Mind of God that they continue to choose him, and they will do so again at this coming general election

    And this meg minority, regardless of their status, has no power over God’s decision. The harder the enemy try to stand the harder he will fall

    Let us pray that PM Skerrit will hold on strong, knowing the strength behind him is the MIGHTY POWER of the Living God of Heaven & Earth, in His Person, Christ Jesus, no man can stand against that MIGHTY POWER.

    Wake up Pastors!
    I listened to one of our Pastors give his views on the political climate in Dominica. Based on what he said I could tell that there would be chaos in our land. What has happened to our spiritual leaders? What are we doing? What’s our position? Are we getting so consumed with politics that we are forgetting our real calling? While we are hating, fussing, and gossiping the devil is indeed having a good time. “Righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach to any people”

      A statement should be out there CALLING FOR CALM AND SETTLE DOWN AND GET READY TO VOTE. With this nonesense what is happening you have ANGRY people going out to vote and will not accept the decision – the OAS SAID IT.

      UWP you all have outside FORCES AND LEADERS DICTATING HOW YOU SHOULD RUN YOUR COUNTRY SO THIS IS THE HEAVY HAND YOU WILL be getting into POWER WITH? LOOK AT YOU!!!

      NO ONE CAN STEP BACK AND BE RATIONAL ANYMORE – THE LINE IS BLURRED. CAN SOMEONE SAY STOP THE VIOLENCE.

  14. December 3, 2019

    From the outside getting a perspective of what’s happening inside. This is an interesting article with an interesting character (the psychiatrist). He supports the resistance which is to create mayhem (probably) for the unemployed youths to secure employment to rebuild what they have destroyed. In that case it seems to be the opposition party’s way of creating employment.

    Still don’t understand the level of hostility/aggression/violence by the opposition party supporters who are confident of winning the elections…. Or is it that they are panicking??? But just that you all know…the aftermath of civil unrest is much worse than the aftermath of a cat 5/6 Hurricane.

    This violence and harsh protest saddens me. Whether or not the current government is doing what they are supposed to, this sort of behavior is uncalled for. My mom does not like it when I say this, but I have no hope in this country. Things are already difficult as it is. Why can’t the people live in unity? How can such a protest be alright and is even condoned by persons who are supposedly educated? I watch afar off and my heart aches for the country. As the world watches with me all we see is a family at war; Not a pretty picture.

The same persons whom u want to support Mr. Linton. Right? That cannot b right & shows your lack of love & disrespect for authority & others. What do u think? When u train those young ones to do this despicable things, they will turn on you guys if your party ever win an election in Dominica and forms the Government. Where are your common sense? Don’t u notice the support 4 the Red party? Are u trying a coup? You guys cannot be speaking for the majority of Dominicans. Wake up, seek the Lord 4 guidance. University graduates please humble b4 God humbles u. There is the Creator of the Universe. U have seemed to forget him. Humble, repent b4 it is 2 late. Put God 1st in all u do. Jehovah is a just God.

    • The Truth Be Told
      December 3, 2019

      The PM mental stability is perfect. If he was not, we would be in a depressing state of affairs as per you people’s plot. Remember the word of God says that Jehovah turns for good what the enemy has planned. You plot and plan to have a coup, get him to lose his mind. Concerned Dr Benjamin hates people so he cannot be used to take care of our people who need psychiatrist assistance. Here what he says and his outburst about the PM. A professional man like Dr Benjamin who should show example of respect 4 authority. Showing hatred openly so means that he should not be trusted with our mentally ill patient. I heard persons say so but now due to his outburst & his inate apparent hatred 4 others, he needs assistance not the PM who has displayed calmness/ peace under this difficult situation. Remember I have heard PM call on supporters to refrain from violence & I also heard Mr. Linton blame someone else for the uprising (young people). Who needs mental assistance? U guess !

  24. The Truth Be Told
    December 3, 2019

    cont’d Benji u are supposed to b a well respected doctor. Why condone violence. The young man has matured & makes decision by himself seeking God’s face. You see the problem with you guys is you always want to be in control (the Christians, Telemaques, you & many others) so u support one for a return of a top position ( no regard for anyone else in Dominica). Now Roosevelt has seen thru you all who has never shared his vision of love for people. so when u do not get what u want, u all get bitter & begin to hate him. I know this PM has spiritual discernment, prays too so Jehovah will always guide him. You all need to humble, learn 2 love others then God will give your rewards. It is Jehovah who promotes not man. Guys please repent of your evil thoughts for this man & country. Humble garcon. Bitterness of one man to kill DA must stop in the Name of Jesus. If you guys do what u need to do, forgive & stop hate, love work hard, God will elevate u when it becomes necessary.

Benjamin said the prime minister is a “savage and as he is going out, he becomes this dangerous animal”. Benji again I cannot concur with this. I have never seen this man as an animal. Why Benji. Why Benji. You asked people to fight to remove this government. You are condoning violent means. Elections are a mere 4 days away. I would expect you to tell people to vote saw blue so the electoral process to be fair. You Benji now turn into what u wish for others. You have just turned away persons who supported your party. Garcon where is your brains? U have lost more by those protests instead of gaining. Again Brian u again. You need to get some anger management done. Guys repent.

I don’t suppose he will be the one treating the children of Marigot who are breathing in those toxic fumes from the fires of what ever toxic materials being burned in the streets, nor will he be on hand in case of an emergency where emergency medical staff might not be able to bet past the blocked roads. Lets hope it might be one of his own relatives that might die as a result of this reckless criminal behavior which he supports. If that’s an example of the better Dominica lennox and his power-hungry UWP offering Dominicans, then they can keep it. Let them burn down Marigot and Salisbury.

      Peter Edwards, you have a very small none-ambitious mine.
      You mentioned Dominica’s reputation; if in fact Dominica is known for anything; is that we are known for our backwardness, lack of progress; hence, poverty is our people’s comfort.
      Because you think low, you see everything as perfect under Roosevelt; your cup, glass, is less than half; almost empty, nevertheless you view it as full and running over; yet whenever your financial needs arises, you are unable to take care of such needs. How many times you find people in Dominica taken ill, the medical treatment they need are not available in Dominica!
      So, what the unfortunate does is have people go on Radio, and Television and on DNO asking for handouts from the general public.
      Do you believe that humans; the majority of Dominicans are supposed to live in such state of poverty, without handouts their life’s could be forfeited?Meanwhile Roosevelt, and his political clones, puppets and associates even foreigners enjoys…

    Benjamin I am really disappointed in you can’t believe. A man like u who is supposed to be educated can stoop so low. To say the least that this is not a protest and fighting for their rights, I think you have the mental problem. See one on your kind, shame on u.

    The cult followers of the Rev Jim Jones- sorry I meant Skerrit are out for Dr. Benjamin’ s neck. Lets pity these followers for that don’t know better- well cult following transcends education and socio-economic levels- lets pits them. Sooner or later5 they will come to their senses but then again they are so far down they may not.

      The cult followers of Linton……

      @Chris, and who invited him to stick his neck out with such a deplorable attitude? Do you realize that he has simply made it worse for the people of Marigot to choose Lennox as their constituent candidate?

      If Lennox has any confidence left in him, I am sure he is saying to that Benjamin person: Man, what is this that you have done? Ayelaaaaaaas!

    U this mad doctor should b avoided by all who come across u as u are way more dangerous to us Dominicans than the marigot trouble makers. And u are slyly using your social status and psychiatric training to play on d minds of the people and especially the young ones who are easy targets to your deception but u cannot fight God. All your blue effirst are useless. We want democracy and peace not vulgarity and violence like what UWP is presenting

    Benjamin, if you are predicting a win for the UWP, why are you supporting lawlessness and violence. You come across as a jealous contradicting hypocrite.

    Benjamin save it! Who are you to trample on my right? I am a supporter of the Government, like you, I am entitled to my freedom. I believe Benjamin is the one with the mental deficiency. You people just think you can bully others. We shall go to the polls and the will of the people will stand. Not Benjamin dictating to others his wish. Give me a break! We have a voice too!

      Amen and amen. I 100000% support that. Because the UWP supporters MUST understand that we the rest of Dominicans who oppose them and especially their violent nature are also DOMINICAN just like them and we also have a legal right and voice in this nation just like them. So we can’t stand by and allow a. Minority bunch of them to take away our rights from us and enforce their own on us so let d polls talk period. If its skerrit Dominicans want then we will know and if its Linton then all will know. So enough of this violent acts as its contrary to the DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS AND PRINCIPLES workers pretending to promote and want

      Benji & Brian, don’t u all feel for the children, elderly of Marigot 2 b supporting violence like that? Who suffers? Who inhales this black smoke? The same persons whom u want to support Mr. Linton. Right? That cannot b right & shows your lack of love & disrespect for authority & others. What do u think? When u train those young ones to do this despicable things, they will turn on you guys if your party ever win an election in Dominica and forms the Government. Where are your common sense? Don’t u notice the support 4 the Red party? Are u trying a coup? You guys cannot be speaking for the majority of Dominicans. Wake up, seek the Lord 4 guidance. University graduates please humble b4 God humbles u. There is the Creator of the Universe. U have seemed to forget him. Humble, repent b4 it is 2 late. Put God 1st in all u do. Jehovah is a just God. He is merciful, kind, forgiving but also a God of wrath. Repent b4 it is 2 late. Stop the violence! heed not the warning
