SVG Opposition calls for more protests, Union, Nurses, to join


St Vincent and the Grenadines (News784) – St Vincent and the Grenadines opposition party the NDP will protest on 9 September 2021, when parliament meets.

Leader of the Opposition Dr Godwin Friday, speaking at a press conference on Wednesday 25 August, said the people would continue their protests on the streets of Kingstown.

“These actions are to be robust and determined while being peaceful and lawful, in a manner that proclaims and elevates our democracy”.

To lend support to the trade unions as they represent their members. To insist that the government engage in meaningful dialogue with the stakeholders on the way forward and out of this Covid crisis”.

Friday said the government is acting simply because they have the power in parliament to do and the only way people can take direct action is through peaceful protest.
