    My people, please let us conduct ourselves properly. Be careful of following the wrong elements. Violence can sometimes be initiated for ulterior reasons. For example, a leader in Russia had his secret police bomb buildings, and then blamed it on Chechen rebels. All to get the people behind him. I am in full agreement of protests for your rights, but not with violence. Peace my people, peace. The righteous always wins.

    :?: I want to make it abundantly clear that I don’t support violence of any kind. I’ve lived my life very peaceful with respect for all human kind. However, there comes a time when one has to stand if ones right is being violated! Many of us are showing concerns about violence,but as The Bible says, ” There’s a time for every thing.” Why are we concerned about material things that can be replaced, more than our rights to freely and fairly decide :?: Whenever there’s a war or revolution, it’s always to fix something that’s broken, and in the process lives and other things are destroyed, that’s the nature of life on Earth. So stop being concerned about the material things that will be destroyed and think of the bigger picture of restoring good governance!!!

    @Dora Simon ; what do you do when the wannabe dictator fail to have Electoral Reforms, just because he wants to use the importation of illegal voters to help him hold on to power illegitimately :?: He tries consolidating power by installing people in all the Electoral process to help steal the ELECTIONS! Why does he want to stay on the people’s back and don’t expect resistance! :?:

    No one wins with this type of anarchy. There are some people who are willing to put their lives on the line for true democracy to reign in this country. Many have been warning that the country will sink into total anarchy if democratic norms continue to be eroded by the Skerrit led regime. Mr. Skerrit would rather see the country socially and politically disintegrate that to accept and implement the fair and commonsense reforms recommend and suggested by CARICOM; the OAS; the Commonwealth; the local private sector, the clergy, the labor unions and the many groups from civil society. Any injuries or loss of life, the blame squarely lies with Mr. Skerrit and his no backbone Ministers and overly black soul advisors. Where there is no vision the people perish and the country becomes a Hell Hole.

These habitual criminals,rogues,vagabonds,thives,crooks and traitors MUST BE STOPPED.TOO much peace is coming from the PM,While these crooks destroy the country.Labourites must defend the country that they built.PM RELEASE THE DOGS OF WAR.

    This is not the Dominica way, the rest of the world where civil unrest take place these countries can afford that. Dominica is Dominica alone like it or not. We cannot condone that kind of behavior in our beloved country. When you destroy your capital who you think is going to pay for it? You have visitors on vacation that’s contributing to your economy. I don’t care if you hate Linton or Skerrit that’s not the way of resolving things. Election is a few days away you are telling the rest of the world you lost the election before it took place.

      They are actually protesting because the electoral system is rigged and needs REFORM. You must put the onus on the obstinate and corrupt administration, who they have been pleading with, for 3 election cycles. Your position is grossly irrational and hypocritical.

    So just a few more days until UWP supporters get the opportunity to go to the polls and vote for their party, they are trying their best to scupper the elections and try and get into power through the back door. If this is part of Lennox Linton’s strategy to take power in Dominica, he won’t last a day in office because what goes around comes around. Lennox and his UWP Rottweilers don’t expect to get a quiet time in office if they create carnage in order to force this democratically elected government out of office and install themselves as the government. Mr Linton and his advisers should think very carefully about their actions and it’s implications for the future of this peaceful country. We really don’t want a Hong kong style situation in Dominica.

      They took out the barrier the police put there. Some of allu does forget that the police have a job to do. They have a right to ensure the security of the president and anybody that tries to obstruct that must expect consequences. If they had allowed people in front the building and somebody without good head decide to damage the premises allu would say the police wasn’t doing their job.

      If he was a dictator you would not be able to cast your vote on the 6th of December, would you? I think you should look up the meaning of dictator on google or a dictionary. You should also open your eyes to see who interested in building Dominica and who want to destroy it. Actions speak louder than words.

    Well I know all you Mama and girlfriends will be by the courthouse tomorrow, while your leader in bed by his wife. Like Brian Linton stated, he needs body bags. Lenox you already know the results of the election, therefore you are building an atmosphere of chaos and instability.
    In the last four years, you have positioned yourself in front of a microphone and camera with nothing to show. Now your people are demanding accountability and accomplishments. Not one bill by you, LL. You are blaming everyone, but yourself. After the first disaster, you were given the opportunity to work in rebuilding the nation. What did YOU do! A second disaster struck, again, YOU were given the opportunity to help your people. What did YOU do? Right after the disaster you traveled overseas, What did you bring back to the Marigot Constituency? You have no record, interest, or involvement in any none political organization. Does your uneducated selfish self think you could hold us hostage for four years…
