The protest call was made by UWP PRO, Lenard “Spider” Montoute, who says the demonstration will be held on October 14, 2023. Montoute has outlined the 2.5% Health and Citizen Security Levy, the cost of consumer goods and the discontinued construction of the new wing of the St Jude Hospital.
“We Saint Lucians will be protesting in Vieux Fort near the St. Jude Hospital and letting the government know exactly how we feel about what is taking place in this country. So we must take a stand,” Montoute told the Town Hall Meeting audience this Sunday (October 8, 2023).
The UWP PRO is urging party members to band together to vote the Pierre Administration out. “We must march to return our country to good governance under Allen Chastanet and the United Workers Party. I call you to action – every Saint Lucian. Every patriotic and concerned Saint Lucian, come out and show your love for your country and take a stand against this government,” Montoute urged.
