UWP to hold public meeting on Monday in Roseau

Members of the United Workers Party (UWP) at a rally during the 2009 general elections.

The United Workers Party (UWP) is scheduled to hold what it calls a grand public meeting in Lagoon, Roseau on Monday, January 17 at 8 pm.

The party says “more ‘truths’ are expected to be revealed” at the public meeting.

The UWP will use the meeting to continue its campaign to call for “electoral reform, free and fair elections and the general restoration of the rule of law and democratic practice in the public affairs of Dominica”.

    ………………UWP………….WHAT’S THE VISION FOR DA?????…………..

    I thought election was over……. is there another one coming up next year???

    It seem to me that UWP is always going after issues that are NOT a priority for the party’s survival. I mean don’t get me wrong. Election reform is an issue. I’m sure there’s improvement that should be made BUT…… I have yet to hear anyone from UWP talk about DA’s future.

    I have yet to hear a vision for DA…..

    -how to create and maintain jobs
    -how to lower energy cost in
    -how to reduce crime
    -how to help small business
    -how to improve relationship between police & citizens
    -how to simply…………………… improve our lives in DA

    These are just a few of the many priorities we would like to hear from the UWP!! But why don’t we hear this…….. because you appear to lack vision for this country! If you could represent the people of DA as a real opposition party then….. you would certainly get the blessing and approval to be our future government!! So far you act as a scary movie…….. scaring the hell out of us in DA with your bad management and lack of vision! Until then….. my vote stays hanging.

    They do not protest enough…they need to amp it up more, cause clearly it not working.

    Also Q95 need to buy some more amplifiers as they are only reaching 35% of the country.

    We need to spend more to make people aware of our positions…

    Fear No More

    Last time the UWP had a “grand rally” in Roseau they managed to get almost 100 people after promoting the event on the radio Q95 and even providing transportation to supporters. What a bunch of JOKERS… now they going a try it again… it make me laugh!

    UWP is just to negative! No ideas, no vision, no nothing – just chant down our country. They think we forget what a mess they made when we give them a chance in government. They empty out the treasury and leave Dominica broke. Talk about corruption, UWP write the book on corruption!

    Talk your talk, we know who leading Dominica forward… and it is not UWP!

    Tell us the truth about the UWP agent that coincidentally got burned the same day as the
    Christmas morning fire. How did he get burnt,?Why is he hiding? We want answers, this is to big of a coincidence.

    U.W.P.
    THIS STANDS FOR UNBALANCED WORTHLESS PEOPLE. WITH NO CONSTRUCTIVE AGENDA OF THEIR OWN, NOTHING TO OFFER TO THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR THEM, AND NOTHING TO OFFER TO THE COUNTRY EXCEPT LIES, DECEPTION, TOXIC REMARKS AND DEVISION AMONGST THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY. THEIR LEADERS ARE LIKE PUPPET PET MONKEYS WHO ARE BEING STRINGED ALONG BY THE EVIL AND CORRUPTED NEWS OF LENNOX LINTON AND HIS PAIRS. DOMINICANS, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. PLEASE TELL AND SHOW THE UWP’S THAT THEY CANNOT CONTROL YOUR MINDS ANYMORE.

    If this meeting is about ‘truth’ then the UWP should tell us the truth about the suspicious fire in which:

    a. the only thing significantly damaged was an insured vehicle

    b. for some reason the arsonist conveniently decided to leave behind a bottle with fuel close enough for the house-owner to find, but far enough away that it wouldn’t be damaged in the blaze

    c. UWP agents conveniently showed up immediately at the scene to cast accusations of political
    victimization at the DLP

    d. There are now rumours that a UWP agent coincidentally got burned in a fire that day.

    e. The accusations of intimidation by arson make no sense to someone with a working brain. If the attack was real it would only strengthen Mano’s resolve to keep going, not make him consider dropping the case. Why sanction a move that has almost no chance of working yet will surely make you look bad to the public? Doesn’t make any sense.

    f. It’s pretty obvious that the UWP stood to gain the most from the fire. They could point to it as physical evidence of a dictatorship and use it as justification for their attempts to stir civil unrest.

      UWP afraid to answer where was Brian Linton on the morning of the fire but they want people to answer questions.Why all of a sudden Brian Linton not showing in public or showing up with a long sleeve.I( wonder what Lennox his brother and Trevor Johnson can tell us they like to investigate other people tell us at the meeting tonite.Why Angello so silent about the fire all of a sudden?Nothing about the fire coming out of lennox mouth now.Gabriel Christian And Thompson Fontaine call Brian and Lennox and ask them Where was Brian Linton on the morning of the fire and if he received burns lately and where did he get those burns.Ask Tranny Michael Coipel ebeh weh?

    It’s easy to seat on the sidelines and criticize a game, saying what would be better or different if given a chance to play is what we would like to hear.

    We should not berate the UWP to much for holding these meetings. Political parties all over the world hold regular public meetings even when election season is over to meet with their constituents and discuss important matters.

    My problem is with the format. Electoral reforms and the like are important but I see them as “secondary issues” and not pressing matters facing the nation right now. Why not concentrate on things the resonate with the people: joblessness, crime, the economy and so on. You cannot talk electoral reform to a man who is uncertain on how he is going to put food on the table for this family. After you address pressing matters then you can bring in other larger issues. I think you have to work from the ground up, not vice versa.

    UWP should go to the house and have more respect for the tax payers money they receive.

    this is a democratic country and every one has a right to voice his/her opinion(s) whether wrong or right. if you desire not to listen then dont but dont go around calling people names if and when they are expressing a democratic right. this country is not yet a cuba or a venezula. it is still dominica. so go uwp, go DLP, go any other p who wants to speak. dominicans must behave themselves. please behave and live in peace you know every body is making reference to god, god, god, god…..yet no one is behaving. who is this god that everyone is making reference too? the god i know is the god of peace. people please live in peace…please.
