Protestors demand public meeting with UK Overseas Territories Minister


by Fitsroy Randall (BVI News) Led by spirited local activist Amberly Crabbe and clergyman Bishop John Cline, residents who gathered at Government House yesterday to protest the Commission of Inquiry’s (COI) recommendation for UK direct rule over the BVI have demanded a public meeting with the UK Overseas Territories Minister, Amanda Milling.

Speaking to the crowd of protestors, Crabbe said the people will remain united against the recommendation.

Crabbe also urged the Overseas Territories Minister to listen to the BVI residents and meet with them publicly before making an executive decision on the recommendations in the COI Report.

“Madam Milling, we request an audience with you as the people of the Virgin Islands. We would like it tomorrow (today, May 3). They say they demand it and I agree. We give you until 10 o’clock tomorrow morning to let us know what time the meeting with the people of the Virgin Islands will be because believe me, we are coming,” Crabbe said as some protestors chanted, ‘we need it’.
