The fifth peaceful march organized by Atherton Martin entitled the “March for Peace, Justice and Prosperity” takes place today.

It is expected that Dr. Thomson Fontaine, will join the walk.

Dr. Fontaine was arrested by the police when he returned to Dominica on Saturday last week in fulfilment of a bench warrant issued for his arrest in 2018.

    The street walk must make some changes, including going around the Financial Center several time. You also don’t need a permit to walk around a building (our building).

    How IRONIC. having benefited from what Dominica have had to offer, these BASTARDS are now calling for PJP. Light Skin Dominicans, with a history of hidden prejudices are the ones in the forefront leading, or mis-leading all who are willing to listen. At the end of it all , the ones with the Drum Major mentality will commit acts of ignorance to forward their cause. The Spirits are watching.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 5 Thumb down 30

      Bob; that’s a very stupid comment; you need to accept the old bourgeoisie generation are long dead!
      There was a time when a Dominica born Syrian man would not talk to a black woman in public, nor a Syrian woman: Tony Astaphan is of Syrian decent; he is married to a Bird of Antigua who is Black!

      One of his uncles a might be deceased now operated a motor mechanic shop on Bath Road opposite the convent high school way back in the 1950’s married to a black woman; one of their sons name Hugo, the other name Micheal.

      One of their grandsons have Children with the late Mona George Dill daughter, in jail in California, he was raised by my cousin Lois Robinson.

      So, this thing about light skin Dominican is total nonsense; you are in the 21st century seems to be displaying some bigotry and prejudice!
      Skin color don’t mean squat in Dominica these days.

      Learn this people need each other, we are dependent on each other, that’s how the world revolve!

        Why don’t you read and understand a comment before you respond, is there something wrong with your cognitive understanding. You must study yourself, not other people, at your age this is not how you should be behaving.

          Gary, I totally understand; but the prejudices of the past in Dominica have long dissipated.

          What people need to is concentrate on the future rather than living in the past. The reality is simply this: In the 21st century we know that prejudice an bigotry still exists in certain places in the world.

          Nevertheless, we should learn to deal with it whenever we find it lifting its ugly head.
          Dominicans lie too much in the past; as a result we chase every white person who lived and contributed to the development of the country, and that is why ours is the poorest island in the Caribbean.

          Unlike Barbados which tolerated a large British born population, and if you review; all of the other islands in the Caribbean you will find that their success are all due to the tolerance they maintained for a mixture of different ethnicity and culture on their islands.

          I can give you incidents where a white British family was stoned of a beach in Castle Bruce in 1964.
          There are other…

      @Thug Dog

      You just confirmed what we all knew all the time. Your ghost writer has been revealed. It’s your wife. What she has done for others (stated by you), she is doing for you.

      She is just barely better than you. Birds of a feather flock together. You married the right person. You are perfectly matched.

      You have seen and felt the momentum? It’s the reason these WALKS have you so infuriated. Be very careful not to rupture a blood vessel in your ragworm brain. A ragworm is the animal with the smallest brain.

    Athie dressed up like the late Yassar Arafat with that turban on his head. Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown. Athie got no peace in his life. Someone is harassing him. Athie, be serious and get a life, man. Dominica is just fine. Only a set of stupid, imbecile people who indulges in your crap. Take a trip to North Korea and compare North Korea to Dominica. Tell me what you find. Any similarities, any dissimilarities?

    These walks reflect the true spirit of those who, in past times, have peacefully campaigned for civil rights elsewhere in the world; not least Dr. Martin Luther King and Mohandas Gandhi.
