Protest action in Salisbury

The protest began early Monday
The protest began early Monday

The main highway connecting Roseau and Portsmouth was blocked on Monday as villagers from Salisbury mounted protest action.

DNO was told the protest began as early as 3:00 am, with protesters using old vehicles and debris while lamenting the state of the roads in the community.

Traffic is at a standstill and police have descended on the area.

MP for the area, Hector John, told DNO on Monday morning that protesters say they will continue protest action until word is heard from the authorities.

He said for 15 years Salisbury has been victimized and neglected by the government and residents cannot take it anymore.

He stated that farmers cannot access their farms and the road in the community itself is in a terrible state.

“No amount of provocation will prevent us from standing up,” he said. “We have been victimized.”

DNO is following this unfolding story and will provide information as it becomes available.

    Its one thing to protest and another thing to block road and be violent and prevent people from making their way to work and school!!!! think before you act..this is nonsense!!!!!

    To the one called “Really,” I suspect you are one of the stupidest people alive, along with those who supports your stupid comment.

    In the first place Spags Hector John; never served in government when the UWP was in power; he was never a minister of government charged with the responsibility of repairing, nor building roads in Dominica.

    Besides the UWP held power in Dominica for just about four (4) years! Prior to the UWP, the DFP held power for almost twenty years, prior to the DFP, the Labor Party reigned over the people and country for more than twenty years dating back to the Leblanc era. So, it out right stupid for people who do not know what the hell they are talking about to blame Spags and the UWP. for something that Skerrit should have done fifteen years ago!

    The stupidest the most ignorant, are the people who brought God into it, how can someone bring God into something of which they does not have a clue of what they are commenting on?

    Today was action day for salsbury people, when is action day for the government to start work on the road?- A man was given 8 yrs for sexually assulting and bugry to 3 female kids ages 6,7,8, there life will never be normal again, does the government care? Much less for a road! I will be at every protest as long as its for a better Dominica. I’ll give my life for my kids to have a better Dominica.

    @Really May 11, 2015 “Really Hector for 15 yea rs so the roads were not in a good condition when the govt in power took over? The roads should have been in a good condition when you and your party were there,come on man you can do better than that!”——–

    I was thinking the same thing when I read those words in the News Article. I see this situation as the core conduct of the Opposition–to protest this, that, and the other thing–what they do not realized is the stressful fruit that is produced on the people’s mind; even those who partake in those protests.

    Children has to attend school; adults need to go to work; all other situations of the day must be dealt with, so to move forward–but these grown men, who organize those actions of futility, do not think about the consequences, they are in it for their selfish motives; whatever they are.

    Dear God, please do not leave Your God fearing people in Dominica to deal with those mischief on their own.

      Kimi please use your brain. No point in blocking the feeder roads, They are already impassable and that is exactly why the people of Salisbury took the action they did.
      It inconvenienced a lot of people I know but they are desperate for the govt. to help them.

    My prediction is that the serial liars will promise to fix the rpads and the people will go back to sleep. DE ja vous. Promises and more promises.
    Where are the Marigot and Wesley people protest -roads are even worse.
    What kind of person takes $30 million from friends on behalf of others and use the money to sink and get the people drunk and dotish yet poor and deprived at the hands of the receiver. If these friends are real they deserve condemnation

      You know; a promise is a fools’ pleasure!

      For almost twenty years Skerrit been making all sorts of promise to the people of Dominica, none of which he keeps, not even those he made in private, to private individuals.

      These are his words: “I am going to take Dominica to the next level.”

      “I am going to transform Dominica.” If one inverts the two sentences we find they have one of the same meaning, they mean the same thing! The gullible can’t read, and cannot understand the English idiots believe the same lie over and over, each time falling victim to Skerrit’s pathological lies!

      The man has the majority of Dominicans twist around his small fingers. In the picture above there is someone in a red T-shirt printed on his back “Thank God for Skerrit.” If Skerrit is the best thing he has to offer Dominica, then he perhaps scraped the bottom of the barrel. While he/she thank God for Skerrit, they are not at work, they are in the streets, perhaps hungry too!

    Well what can i say…
    UWP and DLP need to realize win or lose in a constituency we all pay tax… So we all help in the development of our country. This was the same issue with Colihaut in the 90s under UWP.
    Our governments need to wise up.

    • who vex vex
      May 11, 2015

      The only thing, Colihaut was smarter cause they did it on summer holidays while kids was out from school

    • Mamizoo
      May 11, 2015

      And Colihuat road wax fixed and upgraded and in fact Colihuat protest was about the dust and the decay of the road due to the quarry. Colihuat did not have to complain for 15 years. In 4.5 years of office the roadway was done all the way thru Coilibistrie.
      Now compare that. For your info I was part of the protest

      • May 11, 2015

        This is not the first time that salisbury people have done this .They will not stop until something is done

        who are you mamizoo. Would lie to know so I can come use ur comp when I come home

        This one is just wrong timing.
        Im all for democracy but what about the kids thats going to school.

  12. May 11, 2015

    The Prime Minster is such a coward. He rushes on State owned Radio to say the protest action is illegal, he is the same Prime Minister who said before the elections that the road to the farms are in a deplorable state and he was going to do everything to reinstat the roads. From the time he got back in office he forgot about this promise and so many others. His words were a gimmick to get back in office, but this is total disrespect of the people of Salisbury and their means of livelihood and incomes. Is he saying that these honest hard working people have to suffer to earn a living. Something serious must be done to get the respect of the governance in this country. To insinuate that the action is illegal and say the Police will do what they have to do is provocation. He is yet to say he is going to address the state of the feeder roads. Enough is enough, come one, Skerrit, this road situation is going on for years. Can you imagine how much income has been lost over the years

  16. Just Thinking
    May 11, 2015

    Can someone post some pics of the deplorable roads so that we overseas can see the actual state of the roads the farmers are protesting to their farms?

  17. Peace
    May 11, 2015

    Okay, so here’s my two cents. First, for the people who are condemning the protest because it is inconvenient, I say get real! A protest of any kind is MEANT to be disruptive. It is a way to call attention to a cause. That takes me to point number two. Exactly what is the cause? What outcome are the protesters hoping for at the end of this? It is my understanding that a plan is already in place to get the roads fixed. Is the hope to get it started today? tomorrow? Next month? Because what is happening seems more like a riot.
    So yes, by all means protest but just be clear on the desired outcome.

  18. for de people
    May 11, 2015

    There are other ways of getting this matter fixed…shame on the people causing the kids to miss their exam/cxc…

    • May 11, 2015

      This has been done before.They can take the bus on the other side of the road.There are buses on the north side and buses on the south side.Things still moving.You don’t plan half way. One plans all the way.

    Another political action geared at destabilizing the smooth running of our beloved country. From the burning of the tower at our main airport to seawater smokescreen bus drivers protest in that same area , Lindo park project and now this one at Salisbury. Wake up D.A. people don’t go and get yourselves arrested or even killed while the politicians idle stand by and look. Later, they’re laughing HA HA HA sipping cham paigne.

    Its time Dominicans take a stand, we all know that the constituencies that are not under the labor party suffer the most. Hector just a pity I living in the city otherwise I would be there myself to protest. its time we take a stand. Two vans of SSU police officers were sent to Salisbury, and they are asking officers on days off to report to work immediately(taking away my personal time with my hubby) not sure why though its not like Salisbury protest has become violent……..

    My hats off to Mr John an educated gentleman looking to achieve his masters degree and has sealed the fate of young students who were denied the right to sit their CXC exams this morning. Keep on exercising what you deemed your constitutional right to protest and help to increase the rate of delinquency in Dominica which will only see the increase of our young men on the side of the road or involved in drug and other illegal activity. Once again Mr Hector, Thank You.

      If the students wanted to do their exams they had ample time to cross by foot to get buses on the other side to take them to their destinations, instead of hanging around there enjoying “roro”. Exams were at 9. When you wanted them to protest, on a Sunday? For yourselves and your Labour cabal to laugh and call it a failure? This is the only way to make this idiotic govt. listen. Hit them where it hurts.

    I think it’s high time that blocking roads, acts of vandalism and endangering people’s lives must be equally treated as illegal drug and firearm possession . war is not nice know what you’re doing in this nature isle. It’s time to seize assets to repay the cost of lost of revenue , cleanup process and the hard work to repair this dirty image. The workers party failed to take care of their potato garden ,give the prime minister a chance to continue the good work in this country. somebody have to pay for the government vehicle too.

    A A well the Prime Minister of Dominica was on the world stage over the weekend in one of the French Islands so what do you expect from the UWP. They need recognition too and that is the only way they can get it.

    So block the road if it is politics they playing. They didn’t block the feeder roads did they? They block the main highway so how does that have to do with farmers and feeder roads?

    Prevent people from going to work and children from going to school and write their exams and say it is feeder roads they want fixed for farmers to go to their farms. Wasn’t the Prime Minister in Salisbury recently? So why the protest starting as early as 3:00 AM and NOT on the feeder roads that need repair?

    I am very glad for the protest it shows us why the UWP should never be the Government of Dominica ever again.

    I hope the people Salisbury will not be fooled when a Government Minister comes and make promises in an effort to cool down the protest. Remember the people of Layou, after the protest many years ago, to date, nothing significant has happened. Therefore, Marigot should immediately follow with protest action. The 29th of May, would be a great day for protest action in the Marigot area. If protest actions are not taken regularity, calling Matt on radio every morning will not help. The nurses, who have to be on the Goodwill road in the early mornings without proper transport, the nurses should protest. The PWD workers who cannot get paid on time, the workers should protest. The people of Goodwill, who are put in limbo because of the upgrade of the park, the people should protest. The destruction of the basketball court in Roseau by Government, the people of Roseau should protest. The dilapidated farm roads all over the country, the farmers should protest.

    It is sad, but the government has taught the people of Dominica that if they want speedy action, they need to bloc the main road. I don’t blame the people of Salisbury because it seems like, unless you make life inconvenient for a lot of people the government makes a lot of empty but does nothing, even of the complaint is legitimate.

    Hopefully they will come to their senses sooner rather than later.

I am fed up of Dominicans talking and not doing anything… Or those who sit behind their computers whole day commenting on DNO 24/7. It’s time we put down our foot and let it be known that there are several things that we do not like and they need to be addressed. Continue to protest but please no violence!

    Unless Dominicans standup and regularly protest, the Skeritt led administration will continue to govern with an iron hand. Why haven’t the people of Marigot not taken protest action because of the farm roads, the hospital and the Jones matter. Why haven’t the people of the Goodwill Constituency not taken protest action because of the Lindo Park matter. Marigot, Goodwill, Salisbury and Central Roseau must get off their butts and make things happen , or else crapo will smoke their pipe.

    It is about time that action be taken all over the country to put this incompetent government straight. This labor party seems to think that because the people did not vote for them they don’t have to give attention to the peoples needs, this is bull. Everyone pays taxes and projects should be undertaken all over the country, not just selective labor area. The people need to rise up in the Roseau areas to ensure that the government don’t take them for granted. Its about time that this country starts to run properly with all of these ministers and other advisers this government is the worst performer ever in the country history.

      Mmm, I remember Parry Bellot saying on radio that Dominicans must be patriotic and not mind being inconvenienced, the country being shut down for a day and missing flights when one man, Chavez came to visit us. If I am asked to accept that for the sake of one man I am willing to suffer the inconvenience of a blocked road any day to draw attention to the plight of many of our citizens

      Really? So all the years they paying taxes to enrich incompetent ministers and they must STILL go out and do the work themselves. I mean seriously, do you not understand what slavery is/was??? It wasn’t about black vs white, it was about exploitation. One set gets all while the other does the work.

      So if you are truly stating that CITIZENS should do the work themselves, you should add that they should stop paying taxes as well!

      Oh shut up! If you were in their position you would be doing the same! You only see a big picture but check the pixel count if you zoom in that picture is so fuzzy you won’t see … this community has been crying for proper vehicular access for years that is the governments duty to provide long before promising people tablets!

    good for the people of Salisbury. Action speaks louder than words. This would not have happened if govt. took care of all the people’s needs, not just some.

        You talk like we in Venny eh? this is a democracy and this is how it works. So you don’t like what is happening due to your ignorance, see what happens when police arrest people for protecting in a non violent fashion-we will never have the chance to become a better nation… Fool!

        you are one of the members of this corrupt cabal. Children exams are more important than people’s ability to earn a living and send their children to school. U like the others like you have kept this country down. Go on, continue to sing the DLP tune for your supper but your day will come, You are an

      What are those children going to school to learn? To be fodder, followers, new age slaves. Come on people, teach your children something real, like how ALL governments react to their people when they aren’t held accountable!

      Walk a mile in my shoes!! You should try living in Salisbury to understand what we have to go through. You are criticizing from a privileged position, but its who is in the kitchen that feels the heat.

      Shut up you fool. Let the people stand up for their rights as long as they do it peacefully. So what if children have exams? This is what protesting is about: people need to be inconvenienced, an impact has to be made to show govt that the power is in the hand of the people, not the people in power. Talking crap here, as if you took your exams seriously when you had the opportunity to do so.
