US embassy sends emergency message to US citizens in Dominica

The U.S. Embassy to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean advises U.S. citizens in Dominica of demonstrations potentially planned to occur near Upper Kennedy Avenue around 12 noon on Tuesday, 7 February 2017, according to opposition parties.

Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. You should avoid areas of demonstration and exercise caution if in the vicinity of any large gatherings, protests, or demonstrations.

For the latest security information, U.S. citizens living and traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs Internet website at http://travel.state.gov/, where the current Worldwide Caution, Travel Warnings and Travel Alerts, and Country-Specific Information for Dominica can be found. Up-to-date information on security can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the U.S. and Canada or, for callers outside the U.S. and Canada, a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays).

We strongly recommend that U.S. citizens enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) at http://travel.state.gov. STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. embassy or nearest U.S. consulate to contact you in an emergency. If you don’t have Internet access, enroll directly with the Embassy or nearest consulate.

The Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown, Barbados, can be reached during regular business hours (M-F, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) by telephone at (246) 227-4000; by fax at (246) 431-0179; and by e-mail at BridgetownACS@state.gov. After hours, in case of emergency, a duty officer can be reached by calling the Embassy switchboard at (246) 227-4000 and dialing ext. 2210 to speak to the Marine security guard on duty.

    When you burn down businesses and you loot, does that make you macho? I don’t think so!! it makes you an idiot and a criminal. You all talk of the country being so poor, does burning and looting make it richer? I don’t think so?
    Lennox, you need to be a leader not an instigator. You don’t catch flies with lemons, try honey.

    You need to educate your followers on the importance of love of self and country. Stop making everything about you. You are Lennox Linton, not Mr Dominica.
    Dominicans when you burn the little that you have who the hell is gonna help you build back? Is it Linton? I don’t think so. Lennox is Trouble with a capital T.
    You all have become so Americanized, it’s disgusting. You all need to start finding your identity before it’s gone for good.
    Lennox your day will come. God is going to judge you for leading this people astray.

    Hahaha ! I have to laugh. The USA doesn’t need anyone to interprete for them and translate their statement you know. Whoever they think are responsible for unrest is immaterial and irrelevant, they are basically warning their citizens to stay away from potential harm.

    I’m curious though, all the DLP defenders, are you all not curious too, at least just a little bit as to why the PM is repeatedly linked to questionable people ? Don’t you want to get to the bottom of these passport and crooked diplomats issues ? Ehbeh is Dominica that more unlucky to be constantly plagued by criminal diplomats and borbol ?…maybe we need to beat the country with a larchay lamowee. And if the level of corruption is directly proportional to the smell of that larchay lamowee needed to untie Dominica, well, that larchay lamowee must stink to high heaven !

    I just looked at the website and there is nothing about a warning for Dominica . I saw for Europe, Asia and many other countries.

    Alas, so many foolish people. This tiny country find so many silly things to protest against. What they should be doing is working with each other to build it up and keep it strong. There are going to be disagreements but for goodness sake, work together, come to an agreement and move on. This is pointless. No wonder they continue to complain nothing happens and the country is not moving forward.

    I am so sad about the sense of madness and the possibility of violence that has permeated the country. While advocacy and agitation are necessary, it is saddening, frightening, and shameful with all the violence discussed here. Where are the civic leaders, church leaders, it is so disconcerting and discomforting, it is unreal. When I read the comments Dominicans have written on this social media outlet, and discussions I have with my friends who do not even live in the country, I feel very disheartened about the future of the country. I am calling the protester and the DPF to please exercise restraint, and not destroy the tranquility of this beautiful and peaceful country. This is a clash of personalities.

    There are so many more. But it is because people cannot talk to each other violence prevails, which is never the alternative to transfer of power.

    The American Government did well to warn their people in Dominica to stay away from any protests being held in Dominica.

    It would be wide for Dominicans themselves to stay away. Anybody who is near a protest of this kind could be hurt. The rogues do not ask if you are an American or a Dominican. If a riot breaks out anything can happen.

    There have been large and loud protests in front of the American Consulate in Toronto. Years ago I worked as a Security Officer at the same consulate. My wife and I watched the protest on T.V. I was glad I was not there now.

    Things in the USA are not exactly at their best. But then Canada is in trouble to! Let us PRAY for world leaders in every nation.

    There will be no peace until the Prince of Peace returns. And that will be soon. Are you ready to meet Him :?:

    If it were not for a Man called Jesus
    If it were not for an old rugged cross,
    If it were not for a hill called Calvary
    Then forever my soul would be lost!

      @Rev Donald, We the people of Dominica are fedup with your misuse of the bible. Quite frankly you utterances are running people away from the bible because no true man of God would talk the nonsense and support the ungodliness you have been supporting. You are a hypocrite and very misleading.You misrepresent the truth of the bible just as you are misinterpreting the US Embassy letter that we all can see and understand? “The American Government did well to warn their people in Dominica to stay away from any protests being held in Dominica”. Where in this letter did you see that? Is that the same way you interprete the bible to say what you want it to say?.No matter how much you talk about God, it is clear to many that your god is your belly, according to Philippians 3:19. I would not be at all surprised to hear that you are on our pay role. You sure not a servant of God with all your D.D

      So long we’ve been praying for world leaders do you think that hings have gotten better or worse? Truly, it is corrupt world leaders who have the world the way it is. I don’t care how much praying you do things are not going to get better. If most world leaders were thinking about the people who voted them in office instead of their pockets then things would be different.

        The concept of fatherhood, and in specific the concept of the father as the spiritual teacher of the children, is demonstrated throughout both the Old and New Testaments.
        Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it
        Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.
        For I have chosen him, that he may command his children and his household after him to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice, so that the Lord may bring to Abraham what he has promised him.
        For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
        If a man cannot take care of his home, he cannot make a good leader,
        A father is responsible to: Provide for his family Instruct his children
        . Exhort, encourage and implore children Punish unruly children.Raise the children in the discipline and nurture of the Lord, without provoking them exasperating them causing them to lose…

    This is pure Bull. I have said many time the CIA, and Secret Service and also the FBI are involved in the misinformation in an attempt to dis-stabilize Dominica. They are doing so through the Opposition. These agencies have their own agenda, HIGH World influential People who Secretly do their best to foster change to suit their selfish agenda.

    Most black people easily accept propaganda and misinformation and react foolishly.

    There have been so many demonstrations in the Caribbean, Its unprecedented that the US Embassy would release much a statement. That is all in an effort to escalate the issue giving the impression that they expect violence tomorrow. Show those white fools that we are no longer slaves, we are as educated and even more intelligently sophisticated than they will every be.

    America is going to Collapse soon, we need to get away from the US dollar and start trading in our own currencies. Let America fall don’t keep them up by bring out self down.

      The UWP nor the DFP nor Pappy Party is to overthrow any government. It is the people who decides, just like in the South Africa, Hon. Nelson Mandela did not force out the corrupt Apartheid government, he lead the people, that is what the UWP leadership is doing under Hon Lennox Linton and with great support from the Freedom Party and others of concern, because Dominica comes first before party. A fundamental principle that the corrupt Labour party government and its followers do not understand. For them Skerrit comes first no matter how long and how much he corrupted the country finance the more he is liked. It is blind. The UWP and DFP put the people and country first.
      The People’s power is bigger than the people in power, especially the corrupt like the Labour Party and its leadership and nuisance followers.
      We just heard that former French President Nicholas Sarkozy is to stand trial in France. It has to do with financial corrupt while in office linking to election campaigning.

    The United States is keeping a close eye on the events that are unfolding on the Island of Dominica. For those who believe that this is simply coincidental you are living in a virtual reality. Our Prime Minister involved himself in a Global issue that has to do with the development of Nuclear Weapons. Even if you believe that he is not involved or lacked knowledge of Monfared’s sanctions evasion scheme the fact still remains that he is associated with the issue. Now some idiots will say that the man they once referred to as a “novice” is responsible for bringing about this unwanted attention but that is just foolish. The Salisbury protest received absolutely no attention by the United States Government besides that brought about by concerned Citizens who reside there. So, why should this “meeting” get State Department attention even BEFORE it occurs? Do you honestly believe that Linton is that influential with the U.S. Government? Please get real and wake up!

    This notice is to inform Skerrit and his police force that America is listening to what is happening in Dominica and will continue to pay very close attention to the cabal.

      The US also knows those who planned this protest. You and your gang give D/ca a bad name. Keep bringing Dominica down and blame the PM. One day you will wake up and realize your error.
      The US has been reading your comments of hatred and ignorant ones at that.. Know that the US Embassy is watching your UWP leader and all those who participate in this so-called protest including their action. Pictures of you will be taken through the Internet which the US will be fully aware of. Due to this, some of you may be denied entry to the US.

      You clearly are not meaning the God of truth. I suggest you revisit the Bible and read it precept upon precept ( if you can) then come back and tell us how you think your poor excuse for a government is doing the Most High’s work.

      Until it is posted on the state Department website you won’t have access to it. Any American who travels outside the US is required to register in the STEP which allows them to send you emergency information directly. Unless someone who has received it makes it available DNO, it won’t be seen. This applies to all countries where Americans live.

    I wonder what Tony Astaphan and Parry Bellot have to say about this cautionary warning from the U.S. Embassy to Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean .. How did we get to this point??

      Nice interpretation of that embassy piece.Uwp supporters and their leaders are known to be arrogant violent demonstrators and therefore are warning US citizens to stay away wa u tink DOC?

        Oh I forgot, DLP supporters are so righteous. Funny how they are the only ones on here cursing.

    • Just Passing Through
      February 6, 2017

      I wonder what you have to say about the warning? Do you think that the US is aware of all the people who live in the US and who are part of trying to over throw a democratically elected government? I am almost sure they will take a deem view of such persons. Do you think these people could be on a US watch list also? It is very possible. What do your US passport say, if you have one. Place of Birth….Where?

      • Nac Vibes
        February 6, 2017

        The only people who are on their watch list are those who have tankers flying our flag trying to circumvent the US and UN oil embargo on Iran. And it sure aint the opposition.

        February 6, 2017

        It did not take Clayton Shillingford to make Dominica look bad, it took the Prime Minister of Dominica issuing a diplomatic passport to an Iranian who was arrested in the DR for violating UN sanctions, the question is who issued him the diplomatic passport knowing fully well what he was involved in, it was Roosevelt Skerrit PM of Dominica.

      Clayton Shillingford,are you really serious by asking how did it or do we got to this point,Have you asked Lennox Linton,who have said at his first regional interview that he doesn’t know and that he is a Novice adk him how did we get to that.i think that this an insult to our country to have the name Dr.infront of your maiden name it doesn’t worth you anything. .You should also know that any where in the world that there are US Citizen’s the US State department would send out s notice to their Citizen’s therefore this would not be the first time .
      The State department had also in the past guard their Citizen’s against The Chickengonia and zZIKA viruses .

        What really is your point Dr, Ham Victoria……..sounds personal to me

        I clearly understand the well experienced, long serving point of Dr Clayton Shillingford., one with exceptional value and experience with long serving to agriculture development.

      You are supposed to be intelligent? Even you, too, turn it into a negative against the government.
      Are you not broadminded? The US Embassy is warning its citizens to stay away from trouble spots which Lennox and his gang commenced. They will pay for it.

      • viewsexpressed
        February 7, 2017

        The government is very corrupt, that is the Labour Party government. Its leadership is equally corrupt and lacks intelligence in development, no wonder the country is poor and getting poorer.
        All of a sudden Skerrit has money to run about with projects. Where was all of this money before again Hon Linton, with Dr. Hon Fountain, Dr Sam Chrisian ad brother Gabrielle and the likes of Athie Martin and other decent Dominicans blew the whistle of the passport corruption.
        If you people can continue to be denial then we have along way to go in Dominica.

      Dr. Shillingford,

      Are you sure you are putting your question to the right people? Do you think that if Dominica falls as a result of all these public and international “goings on” on social media and elsewhere that it is Tony Astaphan and Parry Bellot who will fall with it?

      By all means wrong is wrong and all wrong from all sides must be condemned but one does not burn down the house in the hope of killing the mouse inside, particularly if your elderly parents and your young children are also occupying the house in which the mouse is.

      You are a brilliant man right sir? I also hazard a guess that you are a dual citizen, American & Dominican right sir? accordingly you can afford to focus on Tony Astaphan and Parry Bellot rather than on the bigger picture!

      • Titiwi
        February 7, 2017

        Ms. Saunders, a chilling thought but have you considered that perhaps people may have reached a stage where they feel they have nothing left to lose but if they have to perish they will take those, whom they see as their oppressors, with them. History teaches us that this has happened before and I pray we will not see this happen in my beloved Dominica also. i would submit, that the glory, stuborness and megalomania of one man is not worth paying this price.

  33. February 6, 2017

    Please do what is necessary USA.This country Dominica,has plunged into an abyss under the ruling DLP regime.It is the worst government in the Commonwealth by a long way.The Monfared issue is the talk of most citizens..Our economy is in crisis,our institutions are dismantled!.
