‘Appropriate action’ imminent in Salisbury protest

salisbury protest
The residents said the protest was based on the poor condition of farm access roads

It appears that the police may take “appropriate action” against those who either participated in or organized a protest which engulfed the community of Salisbury recently.

On May 11, residents blocked the main Highway connecting Roseau and Portsmouth, raising concerns over the deplorable state of farm access roads in the area. The protest was eventually broken up by the police using tear gas.

Speaking on privately-owned Kairi FM’s Heng Program on Monday Justice Minister, Rayburn Blackmoore, insisted that the protest was illegal, noting the police will be taking action as mandated by law.

“The Minister of Justice cannot instruct the police to go and arrest people,” he said. “That is why I am saying that I am satisfied and the police, by virtue of the fact, is the entity mandated by law to take appropriate actions where persons certainly and clearly undermined the laws of the country. And in that regard I have every reason to believe that the approprate action will be taken in that regard.”

He stated that he makes no apologies for saying the protest action was “uncalled for.”

“The state will not sit by idly and allow that to continue,” Blackmoore remarked.

The Justice Minister is also shooting down allegations made by local attorney, Tiyani Behanzine, that the tear gas used by the police during the protest had expired.

“I listened to the statement issued by the police, a press statement, and I am quite in concurrence with that statement,” he said. “I have not seen any evidence that points to that and I want to say therefore that the statement adequately responded to that claim.”

In a statement the police had said all armaments used during the protest meet international standards and mandates.

    Skerrit and his goons are keeping Dominicans divided, they make their own laws and if you are not a labourite they want to arrest you. But Dominica’s children are being molested everyday, that’s a crime so why don’t your administration put the spotlight on protecting the innocents.
    There is a God whether you believe it or not, and he will take vengeance on you because he hears the cry of the people, all your million dollar houses cannot protect you from Mother Nature when my God move his hands. You said no law but Mother Nature is in control and she makes the laws, she removes the mountain and throws it in the sea,so who are you little men? Your hands too short to box with God
    Remember in exodus pharaoh’s heart was hardened and he kept the children of Israel in bondage until God gave the order and smite pharaoh’s son, and he execute judgment against all the gods of Egypt.
    So go ahead gods rulers of Dominica, keep oppressing his children, keep testing his patience.

    That was always going to be the case because of how they did it. Institutions lost money as a result. I always said they went about it the wrong way. I’d much rather have seen them block the entrance to ministry instead. You cannot stop everyday people from going about their business. They got the result which is good. The roads are getting attention etc. but there would’ve always been punishment because it was done in bad taste and affected neutrals on the island.

    My people didn’t you hear the ambassador wife questioning Mr Blackmore asking him to give her listeners some sort of satisfaction by telling them that the people of Salisbury will be delt with.I always say to people the same stick that you measure people with expect it for yourself.Poor Mr Blackmoore at one point he was even fed up cause in spite of he saying he is in agreement with the police with using the expired teargas his government don’t even know where to start with dealing with that fact.I agree with him put the responsibility in the police hand stay out of that .That responsibility carries too much weight

    I would like to advise the Govt. and the Police that the action which they are contemplating against the people of Salisbury is a naked REPRISAL against the people for their Democratic rights. the Govt. isn’t motivated by any sense of justice but of revenge and malice against the people. In this case tread carefully & leave well alone.

    Rayburn, you are not making things any easier. Everytime you open your mouth and threaten the good folks of Salisbury and Dominica by extension the people are getting stronger and more determined to resist the authorities with all they have should ANY arrest take place.

    I am afraid that Salisbury people including DLP supporters from Salisbury will turn the country upside down if you and the Police Commissioner arrest anyone reference the last protest and they will not stop on the Bawi Hwy. Please Rayburn and Skerro, leave the Salisbury people alone. If you guys don’t believe me ask Shanks and the recently retired ASP from Bawi on the prevailing mood inside Bawi and you will see.

    You guys failed to respond to the people appropriately after 15yrs of neglect so they did the right thing afforded to them under the constitution..Protest. Ma Dominique cannot handle another 1979 so please let cooler heads prevail and leave the people alone.

    I do not believe in violence, nor the overthrowing of an elected government by force: Nevertheless, I believe that the time has come for the people of the country to take action against Skerrit, and the criminal elements such as Blackmoore.

    Dominicans must wake from their slumber, and spell in which we exists, and rise against those who oppressed us, they are asking for a civil uprising, and the people should accommodate them!

    There will never be peace in our country as long as such corrupt criminals, people who are thieves claims to be running the country, and trampling on the rights of the people! Here is an idiot Blackmoore who said the protest was justified, now the same idiot contends the protest was illegal.

    One of the most illegal things we can point out in Dominica, is that a man spent a few years in the Dominica police force working for peanuts, he left got into politics, and in less than five years own a house costing more than a million dollars, that is more…

    The 17000 that voted for UWP think that they can overcome the majority that voted for the DLP. SLOW WATER RUNS DEEP. All UWP talk is another 1979. Remember when what took place on May 29, 1979 every Dominican, every color, every union was involved, not a minority like the UWP. The Salisbury riot must and should be dealt with by the law. Imagine the pal rep for the area referring to this as 5/11 making a comparison to 9/11 and saying to the Law authorities….IF YOU TOUCH ONE, YOU TOUCH ALL….How can one be wrong and think he is right? and you expect no action to be taken? Come on, the leaders should and must pay.

      “SLOW WATER RUNS DEEP.”

      It is not slow water: it is smooth waters runs deep.

      Anyway I am now convinced that you and The Facts may not be one of the same, unless this is a deception. History do repeat itself, Skerrit, Blackmoore and the rest of our peoples oppressors are asking for the repeat of history.

      To me the days of that repeat are not too far away; Skerrit sense it, that is why you see his paramilitary marching in the streets of Roseau, dressed in military fatigues, with back packs! Dominica is the only place in this universe we find police dressed in military uniforms. The uniform of a soldier is far different to that of the police officer.

      Dominica is known as the Sleeping Giant according the late Premier of St. Kitts, Dominica born in the village of Castle Bruce Paul Southwell. The Sleeping Giant woke in 1979 or there about, and went back sleep, soon to be awaken again.

    Go ahead Blackmoore , make our day. If Skeritt or Blackmoore, is fed up of governing this country and wants a way out, just resign and let the people choose another Government. Blackmore, I am sure has heard the sound of a conkshell before. If he or his Government arrest anyone from Salisbury or elsewhere in Dominica, he will hear the deafening sounds of conkshells blowing all over Dominica , he might believe the world is coming to an end. Please be calm, people, don’t be frightened, it will only be the beginning of the end of the repressive regime. Tighten your waist Dominicans, the same thing you do just before a hurricane, guide yourself accordingly. It is going to be a very long ride.

      They will not resign because if they do they will missed the money they steal from the piggy bank!

      The brown paper bag will not come out from under the table filed with money, and so they will not be in a position to buy choice land, and own houses costing millions of dollars while they give shacks without toilet and kitchens installed in them to the red devils who follow them.

      It is time for the people to get angry, and put those bits of human scum’s and mucus who calls themselves honorable ministers of governments out of business by any means necessary.

      AS general strike the same as the one organized by Charles Savarin Skerrit President, organized in 1979 in which people were killed!

    The constitution says that ppl should express their right but in an appropriate manner. Not blocking roads sending fire bomb after law enforcement officers. Come on ppl this country is not lawless. Example has to be set so history won’t repeat it self . So the guys who plan the protest and fire bomb the police officers should be taken to court. Let the court decide and we shall move on in our peaceful nation

    I remember back in the days, when the same one who lead the people into 40 plus days strike, said that “a protest is neither illegal or legal, it is either successful or unsuccessful”. If I was to ask today, I believe His Excellency would still say the same. So, Mr. Blackmoore, Mr. Carbon, leave well where well is! A word to the wise is sufficient. I’m neither for or against the protest, but, just leave that alone. Let by gone be by gone. The good Book says, ‘blessed are the peacemakers..’

    The police are making dominicans believe that they are the ones taking that decision ,,that is not the truth al all ,it is the political party in power which is taking such a decision…this country dominica is controlled by a dictatorial gov’t ,this is what dominicans voted for,the leader was dancing like is party time,throwing roro or gossip talk towards others ,that is what most dominicans like gossip talk to make them rejoice on others fate and laugh like idiots ,now those that are against the gov’t should not talk ,this is what is happening at the moment,all dominica should go on strike and ask for the leader to resign and make sure he does.

    I think de government is searching frantically through all available legislation to cover itself and justify incarcerating targeted residents of Salisbury. Those it thinks may have planned or led de protest.
    I thought de government had a case already.
    And a very strong one to.
    Time is going and nothing definitive.
    Chavez jailed de opposition leader for leading a protest.
    De guy is still in jail despite calls from UN for his release.
    Is there a law against protesting?
    If such is de case de government and police should go to the labor party constituencies, find de leaders from back then and jail them as well.
    Go to Kalinago Territory, layou, colihaut…etc
    IF YOU REFUSE YOU WILL EXPOSE YOURSELF AS A DICTATOR VICTIMIZING AGAINST ANY AND EVERY GROUP OUTSIDE THE DLP.!!

    The plan is that the Baby dock government is waiting for the cricket visitors to leave and then they will come in with their Toton Makout to intimidate the people of Salisbury.
    So let us go to the cricket game with plaques to tell the world that we have a corrupt and repressive government. A government selling our passports like prostitutes and laundering money among the cabal.
    Let our plaques highlight the massive election fraud and say congratulations to the St Vincent government for cleaning up the voters list.
    After all if they want to hide their filthy behavior when the visitors are here let us expose them as much as we can. If we love our country then we must reveal the truth about our country so that those crooks are exposed.

    Ok, lets take emotions and politics out of it. Blackmore back off and move on. Don’t threaten the people any more. But seriously though, should protestors be given a card blanche to disrupt anything, anyway they see fit? They took over a major road. Would it be ok, if they took over the airport or the ferry terminal? The point is where do we draw the line? On the other hand Government has to be more accountable and transparent and fair in conducting business whether in its strongholds or in UWP land. Government has to do better with its PR which seems only good to elect it in office. Finally the people deserve due respect. Nonetheless if we arrest people for vagrancy, should any act of public disruption no matter how extreme should go unpunished? I will end by saying the people have a right to protest peacefully as long as no law is broken. The government too should listen more and not take its people for granted. Governemnt has to be proactive and has to be seen to lead in all…

      “But seriously though, should protestors be given a card blanche to disrupt anything, anyway they see fit?”

      Yes indeed, a protest is to get the attention, and resolve of a prevailing problem or issue. To protest is the people’s right in a democracy, and not a privilege.

      In Los Angeles not too long ago there was an incident involving the police. Motorists went unto the I-10 (Interstate 10) Freeway, in the middle of Los Angeles, obstructing traffic preventing millions of motorist from going about their business!

      We saw the same method in Michigan a few years ago.

      Only in communists country’s and places ruled by dictators people are prosecuted when they stage protest, without violence. Believe it or not, the only thing left for Skerrit to operate in the open as Dominica’s first dictator is for him to ask his Puppet president Charles Savarin to allow him to rule Dominica by decree!

      Savarin may soon give him that authority!

    Mr. Justice minister you are concerned about protest are illegal and you and the legal affairs minister does not seems too concern with money laundering activities that is going on in the country. This will soon black list the country and will soon loose its corresponding banking relationship and the country will continue down hill but that doesn’t concern you all.

    I think the way forward is for the residence of Salisbury to fill a class action suit against the government and bring in some international human rights lawyers who i am sure will take on this case and get the necessary publicity for the cause of the people of Salisbury.

    All of all you that are aiding and abetting in the money laundering activities by setting up companies and moving money through all you business accounts will soon have all you day of reckoning.

        Most of those people here are sounding so “ridiculous” it is unimaginable.

        God given rights are base on “Love”. God gave us the right to love Him and to love each other–but only those who will obey His commands.

        In Love there no strife, vile, discord, and disdain, which a minority people want for our country, even those who do not live there, and have no intentions of returning –this kind of mentality is not from our Holy God; it is from the devil–the god of this world.

    Mr Blackmoore , why am I sensing that there’s a hatred by the Gov’t towards the hard working people of Salisbury ? I view the protest as worthy a cause and an example of human rights as civilians and more so citizens of the nature isle , to protest against activities which affects us . Sir , the people felt like they were taken for-granted and as such sent a strong signal that the silent sufferings needs being broken and hidden sufferers now has to come forth in this country and fight for the cause of their suffering family and most affected children . And to conclude sir , you make it seem like this activity was the only illegal action ever taken , but you’re wrong you sit among the illegalities , partake and drink with illegal partners which includes you . Everywhere people protest , why not in Dominica ? I say for too long now our protest has been silent and mocked by your comrades , so if no law & no constitution could stop your leader from being elected , c’est la mem…

The Uneducated Wicked People and their minions seems to not be taking this as seriously as they should be, however, when they are being dragged before the Court to face the Mighty Labour Power we will see how defiant and insubordinate they really are. The fact is that the Uneducated Wicked People opposition are really a bunch of disgruntled cowards who hide behind a certain radio station spreading propaganda and and outright lies against the Most Holy Supreme Leader and other members of the Blessed Labour Party Government. When the handcuffs go on and they are dragged before faithful Labourites and other Law-Abiding Dominicans we will witness the tears and the pitiful pleas for mercy. We will see how they go from loud-mouthed troublemakers to shameless begging cowards as they realize that their time has finally come to face the Labourites whom they’ve berated for years.

      @ somebody, really people broke the law and you want them to let that rest? so am I to take that the people who molest, rape, and kill once time has past they should let that rest? looking at the picture only four people have on gardening boots on, if that was an organized farmers protest all would have the same attire on this tells me it was no farmers plea when we know the road was going to be dealt with in a month or two time. We quick to point out who breaking laws with no proof the ones that are actually breaking the law we want to turn a blind eye, I heard the minister also say you have to get a permit to demonstrate and every time these people demonstrate in the past months and years they never seek a permit.

        What about those accused of money laundering? Why block attempts to investigate? In all fairness everybody who does wrong should persecuted. But it seems in this system if one goes down all goes down. I suspect some people are scared to lose their diplomatic immunity because some heads will roll. But nothing lasts forever, time will tell

    Bkackmoore in the 4 1/2 yrs from 1995 to 2000 opposition leader Rosie Douglas had strike every year. There was one that involved road blocks in colihaut, grandbay, cainfield airport and Roseau. People demonstrated because a fountain was being erected at the bayfront in an effort to beautify Roseau. If you want civil war to break out go ahead and arrest people. Unless there is equal application of the law for breaching all crimes you need to shut your mouth.

    The actual dates of expiration on the cans and the warnings issued not to used after said date, does not constitute evidence?

    No surprise that arrests are to be made! Thats what authorities normally do to surpress public discontent. But Blackmoore…just look through the history books….when has arrests ever led to calming the situation? Most protesters are prepared for such action if it comes to it.

    I guess you guys need to start building more jails!

    Rayburn, once again your arrogance gets the best of you. You are clearly insinuating that the police are not doing their job by arresting the people but you are insisting that they should. We must learn to be tolerant and sufficiently wise in our relationships with those we serve. You seem to be influenced by your subpar leadership and your natural but unfortunate arrogant disposition.
