Linton urges RSS member governments to stay away from Dominica for general election

RSS personnel in Dominica after Hurricane maria

Opposition Leader, Lennox Linton, has issued a call to regional governments who are part of the Regional Security System (RSS) stay away from the situation in Dominica and allow locals to deal with the matter.

There are reports, that given the increased protest action in Dominica leading up the December 6, 2019 general elections, that Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit may have asked the RSS for help.

“The next few days and weeks are going to be very interesting. We expect the international community to continue keeping its eyes of Dominica. We are also asking the governments of CARICOM, to refrain from sending members of the Regional Security System (RSS) to Dominica to help the local police to brutalize citizens of the Commonwealth of Dominica simply expressing their democratic right to protest for [their] rights,” Linton said.

He also called on the international community to pay attention to what is happening in Dominica.

“You have one man and a small group of people fighting against the right of the people to “free and fair elections.”We have made our positions known to the international community and we are receiving favourable feedbacks from the friends of Dominica around the globe,” he stated.

The Regional Security System was created in 1982 to counter threats to the stability of the region in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

On 29 October four members of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) namely, Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent & the Grenadines signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Barbados to provide for “mutual assistance on request”. The signatories agreed to prepare contingency plans and assist one another, on request, in national emergencies, prevention of smuggling, search and rescue, immigration control, fishery protection, customs and excise control, maritime policing duties, protection of off-shore installations, pollution control, national and other disasters and threats to national security. St. Kitts & Nevis joined following independence in 1983, and Grenada followed two years later after Operation Urgent Fury, a combined U.S. and RSS invasion of the country. The MOU was updated in 1992 and the system acquired juridical status on 5 March 1996 under the Treaty which was signed at St. Georges Grenada.

The RSS initially started as a U.S. instrument to combat the spread of Communism in the Caribbean region. As of 2001, the RSS further cooperates with the CARICOM Regional Task Force on Crime and Security (CRTFCS).

    There is an old saying, when you digging holes for others, be sure to dig one for yourself. In true honesty, their body may be overseas but, their heart is in their country. They have their properties in their country that need to be protected. They send barrels most of the time for their relatives. As a businessman, you must have contact with other countries, suppose they refuse you permit to enter the country, what then? Let honesty and fairness prevail. Just a thought.

    Just reading these comments make me feel very troubled! Interestingly those who want to stay under the regime may choose to do so. Go to the poll cast 1 vote each. Likewise the opposition supporters can do same.

    The fact that reform is being avoided is alarming which hints that irregularities are expected and that’s wrong.

    The country is being mismanaged…how do we know this? Look at your sister islands or other small nations of similar size and population.

    There is rampant corruption….how can you tell? Look at the quality of life of government officials and their families vs average joe.

    I feel bad for our people fortunately this may end when the damage Is irreparable. Papa doc has staunch supporters, so does Maduro and others. Pa ni suitiwez pas ni voleh

    “The next few days and weeks are going to be very interesting”.

    Lennox, what does that statement above mean? Very interesting about what? Is it the drama of civil unrest which you have promised the people of Dominica?

    “We expect the international community to continue keeping its eyes of Dominica.”

    Yes, whenever the drama is about you, you are always expecting the World to be your audience. You should be ashamed of yourself for wanting outsiders to see your shameful behavior.

    We are also asking the governments of CARICOM, to refrain from sending members of the Regional Security System (RSS) to Dominica to help the local police to brutalize citizens—simply expressing their democratic right to protest for [their] rights,”

    Once again you are telling us that everything is well planned. You even know that the RRS will help DA police to brutalize your group of misfits, denying your wrongs

Just be mindful of innocent citizens when you all are plotting / ploying whatever y’all are, seriously. Safety first – of the people, and of the things we had to build back after the passage of hurricane Maria.

    It seems some of us have forgotten what we (as individuals and as a nation) went through in the aftermath of hurricane Maria. If we really love our country, we won’t destroy it, or damage what’s in it.

      ALLOW HORSE TO BOLT -THEN CLOSE BARN DOOR

      It matters not there is a national event, such as general elections or even carnival.
      A critical, but vital role of the ‘RSS’ is to ‘…counter violent extremism’ in member states.

      The law-abiding citizens would have no fear of their presence anywhere within the member countries.

      Not sure of the necessity for the call.

      It would be considered gross recklessness for any administration, sensing ‘…public disorder and mayhem;’ allow such eventualities; then ask for ‘RSS’ assistance to restore order.

      This would be likened to;
      (a) …allowing a wild horse to bolt from the stable.
      (b) …quickly close the barn door; and
      (c) …then call upon stable-hands to help catch the bolted horse.’

      Leaders with insight and foresight, never allow such eventualities.

      To be forearmed is to be forewarned.

      When he becomes Prime Minister {if and whenever} he would always require the RSS to be present at all events violent or none violent. He’s making that appeal because he knows that the local police would compromise with the attitude of his supporters when the other members would not. I’m saying to myself if I was a police officer, with a firearm, I would cause a few of the supporters knee caps to be shifted especially those removing the barriers, let them go and lie down at the hospital , if there’s not enough beds, let them lie on the floor. When, if and ever he would be Prime Minister, he would be singing a different tune.

      So what is our local police? A ton ton macoute? Why can’t they keep peace and they have sworn to? Why do they need help? Why are they so useless? Why are they so worthless that outsiders have to come in to do their jobs for them? Why is labour party soliciting armed forces? I thought they were peaceful? You people need to choose a side. Lennox does not want them because they have been solicited to dispel the fears of a crazed madman. If you are so sure of winning 21 seats and five more years, why are you scared of a level playing field.? Yes, all Dominicans will be voting peacefully on December 6. That’s why we don’t need RSS!

    It is quite obvious Lennox’s intentions is encouraging violence. The UWP leader knows very well that he will be defeated in the up coming election. Lennox is in a desperate mental state. Whatever promise he made out there and money he owes to those he made promises to on becoming prime minister is hunting him. We will soon see the true Lennox destructive nature on display in the next two weeks. And Dominicans will clearly see Lennox does not care about Dominica. Lennox is under serious pressure that if he does not become prime minister, there may be consequences awating him for promises and money he owes. Something is not right about Lennox’s behavior. And i personal dont think it has anything to do with electoral reform or voters ID. This desperation inciting violence for power, this shelf destructive attitude will end up in suicide.

    “You have one man (Lennox Linton) and a (very) small group of people fighting against the right of the people to “free and fair elections.”We have made our positions known to the international community and we are receiving favourable feedbacks from the friends of Dominica around the globe, he stated”.

    In the last elections the UWP received in excess of 8,000 votes across 5 constituencies in and around Roseau (Soufriere, Newtown, Roseau Central, Goodwill and Mahaut). Check the statistics. They have on innumerable occasions planned all kind, all manner of protestations, all based in Roseau. Yet still they cannot mobilize any more than 500 or so supporters, even from across Dominica, at any one time to come and support their cause for civil disobedience. When Joseph Isaac left, they organized a protest in the middle of Roseau, his constituency that they won and failed miserably. The people of Roseau and Dominica say keep rebuking them at every turn. So who control the majority?

    If Skerrit is so confident that the people will give him another mandate on the strength of the work DLP has done to advance the country, why would he not allow only those who are rightfully allowed to vote to judge him on the basis of his good work?
    Why does he have to import so many dead people and those who left the island more than 5 years ago to come down and vote, buy people’s support and all the other illegal acts that are being committed by the DLP on a daily basis. If you think you will be judged favorably, then let your work speak for itself.
    The fact that the party has to break all the rules to get elected tells me that they are not as confident of victory unless they tip the scales in their favor.

    So Linton had no problems when the RSS came in after hurricane Maria to help our local police protect our businesses from looters but have a problem with them coming in to help our overstretched police maintain law and order because of the volatile atmosphere created by him and his supporters.
    Voters should feel safe enough to go the polls to exercise their democratic rights without fear of intimidation by supporters of opposing parties, so members of the RSS would be welcome to support our local police.

After Maria we had foreign military and police here giving humanitarian aid of their own free will not only from Caricom but including and British and French among others. They were not only here to help with law and order but first of all to help.

      Dominicans,we need to begin to think for ourselves.
      someone said to me that the majority of Dominicans are functionally illerate.
      Is this true?
      this election will determine whether it is true or not.
      Are you going to vote someone just because they give you a few dollars.
      Is this all you and your generation is worth???
      Are you able to listen to two opposing views and compare, and contrast.
      are you able to evaluate them.
      try and think for yourself.
      I have a problem with all those Dominicans like Loreen Bannis ,Jacinta Bannis , Cuthbert Joseph, from Castle Bruce who try to make people think that Dominica so nice and sweet ,yet they sit down in America.
      if it so nice and sweet why all you run. why not come back and eat the fig with us. HYPOCRITES.
      Loreen does not like Bonnie, John JnoFinn does not know Bonnie but they asking us to vote for her.
      Bonnie never like Castle Bruce people. She never mix with the people, how on earth now she asking for their vote.
      Loreen, Austel,…

        Her point is allu truly “TEHBEH” and can’t think for yourselves! YOU are worth nothing but a “COOL OUT” my friend! So “COOL OUT” and wait for Al Jazeera! I also suggest you get off the internet because I can guarantee you’ve never used it to do anything useful in your life! I’d like to see the looks on all your faces after Skerrit fall down!

        Nonetheless, I’m pretty sure that all you DLP Supporters will defend your MASTER & GOD despite any EVIDENCE found against him… And you mean to tell me allu not “TEHBEH”? Mahgwaysay! Lol.

        It’s a shame that all DLP Supporters HAVE THE CAPACITY OF A DOMESTICATED TURKEY and the ones who went to school and studied are a bunch of WICKED SOULS with NO COMMONSENSE which isn’t too different from the uneducated ones!

        The person approving all these messages knows the head count of …… like you who NEED TO GO! Just like your MASTER & GOD ROOSEVELT SKERRIT!

        Again………. STAY TUNED FOR AL JAZEERA! Lol. Wake you up with a hard…

    This man is dangerous.
    Not only is it inappropriate to blame the police force who was protecting the President of Dominica, he now tells others to stay away.

    It would seem that in two strokes, LL by blaming the police is stoking the flames for further violence. And additionally, by demanding that the RSS stays away is willing to see further violent disturnces, injury and possibly death in order that he can blame or bring down the government?

    This is very cynical and extremly dangerous as a would be Prime Minister.

    You Lennox Linton really desperate to become the Prime Minister of this country and you will do and say anything to make this happen. Dominica bounced back from a catastrophic hurricane Maria without you lifting a finger to help in the rebuilding process. The country is doing well and WE the MAJORITY will NOT allow you and your hungry supporters to destroy what we are building. You all want to see bloodshed in this country but know that good always conquers evil. You and your party will be DEFEATED at the polls on December 6th.

      Yes, as the uneducated 5th grader you don’t have the ability to comprehend or count. Where is di money, it was left by your back doorstep. Who opened the back 🚪 ask them for De Money. As much as Fort Young has been UWP target, tell us who ran to the hotel and hid in the bathroom?

        @ Marigot, you use to be a supporter of the UWP last election but you have been purchased; you have a big mouth that will cause your demise.

        DLP is a declining party that will only cause us to be last in the OECS and Caribbean.

    How hypocrite can those leaders be?!?!?!?!? A few months ago Gaston Browne, Prime Minister of Antigua and current chair if the OECS, said that his government does not have a comment on the Venezuela crisis and has taken the position of Non Interference. Has he flip flopped? Isn’t Dominica a sovereign state lime Venezuela? Why then would he seek to intervene in Dominica’s internal issues. It has been months that the Dominicans have been asking for electoral reform. Not a word has come from any of the islands. Today the people have decided to take a stand and regional governments are ready to use their military might against us!!!! Well I have news for them. Our waters are drunk directly from the stand pipes and we have lots of farmers. A word to the wise is sufficient.

      Whether Linton likes it or not there is going to b elections on the 6 of December this year 2019 in the Mighty name of Jesus!! We the Dominican MAJORITY don’t want this troublemaker and his bunch of advisors and henchmen in our government period. We kept them out for twenty years with the help of the almighty aafter we gave them one chance and they almost literally devasted our country and its economy. And we are going to keep them out once again this next term with the help of the Almighty and our democratic majority votes in vote numbers and constituency numbers. Lennox the majority of us Dominicans don’t want u period. So when u talking about Dominican people with your few supporters please note THE DOMINICAN PEOPLE IS THE MAJORITY FIRST AND NOT THE MINORITY according to our Democratic laws. Go around Dominica, labour has d majority then travel overseas labour has the majority. Skerrit isn’t forcing himself on us. OK. Its us who want him period and who don’t like it then too bad
