Dominica Freedom Party New Year’s Message 2016

In this season of goodwill, we once again wish all Dominicans at home and abroad a happy new year.  May God grant us the favour to pursue our dreams throughout 2016.  May these dreams be noble ones that will uplift our families, communities and country?  We have to work together to fashion the kind of country that we will all be proud of, and that even our first and second generations born abroad can be connected to – the place they call home.

In the year 2016, you will see a re-emerging Freedom Party – The New Freedom Party. But for us this will not be politics as usual – this will be country first!  As we have demonstrated throughout 2015, we will continue to be sober and respectful to all!  It will be about the development of our country and people and not personal vendettas; It will be about pointing the way to sustainable development, not opposing for the sake of opposing; it will be about a new vision, a better path, a caring nation, shared growth and greater economic resilience.

So join us during 2016 in our march to build a better nation.  Freedom is rising again!  Dominica will rise again!  We once again say to you have a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. We commit ourselves to work towards improving the lives of all the people of Dominica


Executive of the Dominica Freedom Party.

    Disenchanted Labourites and Disgruntled Workers will come flocking to the New Freedom Party. Skerrit cannot stay and Linton cannot make it. New Freedom party miracle victory in the next election is something most people right now can never see coming!

    It would be good to see a political party that does not play big lie politics, but would concern itself with issues and challenges that are keeping Dominica undeveloped. A party that does not attack people with lies and false accusations and attack women, but focus on the issues of employment and health services, on import substitution and export, of bundling agriculture and tourism, and developing our natural resources.
    We have only 80, 000 people, that should put us at a comparative advantage.
    Remember you do not have to be in office to do something positive. Show the people what you can do as a party from now till election….you have four years. You have to skip the propaganda of the UWP and the damage control of the DLP to move public opinion in your favour to obtain your support base. Upgrade Dominica and Dominicans to neutralize the degrading that is taking place in the media. Erica has provide a lot of opportunities to show case your party’s positivity.

      This is an hour of need. I hope this message is not just words, but a real commitment. Your message demonstrate an understanding of what is required. 37 years of politics as usual has not brought the sustainable development that we need, nor the national motivation for progress that we want, to have a more positive attitude. We are fighting each other for political points. The real enemy is not our fellow Dominicans, but the negativity that is making us regressive. We can climb the mountain and make Dominica our wonderful world, if we can get out of the politics of destruction that we have now.

    And no more siding with UWP or DLP be your own party. Looking forward to another option at the polls in 2019/2020.

    “Not opposing for the sake of opposing” good choice of words, DFP sadly has allowed the UWP to take them down a wrong path. I often wondered what was the DFP thinking of? Thinking Mamo turning in her grave in disappointment.

    A Party once held to such high esteem to have allowed itself to be swallowed in a sea of angry blue. We hear Dominicans say over and over again when it was DLP and DFP Dominica was much better off. Yes the parties had issues but one thing we knew for certain, when an election was called and the votes counted and we had an elected government; Dominicans went back to work together building our country and certainly not the insanity we are living with since UWP.

    The DFP members who were hand in glove with dis-unity wearing a blue shirt under the green, we no longer trust you? Former DFP members interested in Dominica well-being are DLP supporters karmen.

    I see disgruntled UWP trying to resurrect the DFP easier than forming a new party?

      To betray therir supporters once again as they did some years ago, I am not trust freedom with a ten feet pole, after they took my vote and merge with young freedom movement calling themselves Labour Party, how am I going to get out of labour fever after being converted to Labour, another bunch of jokers hungry for power, one of them son-in-law is minister, will Collin Mc, Skerro, Francis Charles, Ossie Walsh, Sonia Willians, Charlo and the other backslide from labour and go back to freedom?, freedom party fooled me once which was a shame on the party, but to allow freedom to fool me twice will be a shame on me, with thatsaid listening to them on Q and using a patient I am not falling for their games anymore period

    case closed!!
    What has happened to the real labour Leaders and followers ….?
    Seem Freedom PARTY leadership for the most part is in charge of Labour we all know or should know ..
    so what Freedom PARTY is being spoken of ?
    Isn,t Freedom now called LABOUR ?
    The genius of SKERRITT is even now the people of Dominca have not come to terms with this fact ..The PM is the Houdini of DOMINCA,S POLITICS ..Give him credit- both Labourites and FREEDOMITES remain confused EVEN NOW not being aware that they were sold or bought whichever side of the coin you belong
    The great beneficiary in this transaction besides Skerritt is the MAN MADE PRESIDENT for the transaction !

    All those people who left the Freedom Party to form a collision with the Dumb Lazy Party should go back to their roots because Skeriit has failed them repeatedly. I bet they’re regretting jumping ship now when they see the fruits of their labor; that evil seed they helped plant back in 1999/2000, just look at what it’s turned into. They were deceived into thinking that they were getting rid of corruption but little did they know they were only helping to unleash the most corrupted administration this country would ever know. But wait, there is hope, and there’s no need to panic. At this point it is quite understandable that leader of the corruption has brainwashed most of you guys. However, for those of you who have not lost your sanity, I suggest that you jump ship yet again and unite with the blue ones. It’s about time we stated voting for progress and not party. Once a Laborite does not mean always a Laborite.

    Very strange ?
    Freedom is the new Labour ..all of Dominica has understood this from 2000 when SAVARIN THE LEADER of the Fredom party ARRANGED this in the coalition arrangement of 2000
    After the death of Pierre Charles the freedom party became entrenched as the new leadership of the LABOR PARTY all but a few LABORITES were marginalized and in came MAYNARD of the Freedom Party -Parry Bellot press secretary of EUGENIA Freedom Party resumed under SKERRIT a Former known young freedom party activist .. the FREEDOM PARTY took over the Labor party and use the LABOR brand and mass apppeal of grassroot labour to control the Governmnt institutions ,
    All Labour cadre members were ostracised ,,activists like SHORN DOUGLAS and that family were fired
    A few freedom guys never made it as they were unable to be the sycophants demanded by the new Freedom leadership now masters of new LABOR .
    So the price for the FREEDOM PARTY was PAID FOR by the PRESIDENCY given to their Leader
