The United Workers Party (UWP) has planned a peaceful picket for tomorrow afternoon at 4, near the venue for the 21st Intersessional Meeting of the Conference of Heads of Government carded for the Fort Young Hotel.
At a press conference organised by the Movement to Restore Democracy (MRD), UWP leader Ron Green is dissatisfied with the manner in which the local media contact dealt with their request for information on the event.
“We did request information regarding the CARICOM meeting scheduled for Thursday and the plan for the next two days from one of the officers that’s been assigned Mervin Paul and he refused the information to the United Workers’ Party. Dave Bruney was the one who made that request of him yesterday … it’s very interesting to see we have CARICOM leaders in Dominica they’ve assigned information and the information is being refused; basic information regarding the meeting,” he said.
Green is of the view that the issues being raised about their concerns of General Elections are being taken “too lightly” by persons and community leaders.
“We need to wake up,” he stated.
He said they will meet on the Bay Front at the entrance of the Garraway Hotel for the picket, adding “our people are concerned and our CARICOM leaders need to know.”
