Most importantly he says Dominicans must put an end to the dangerous and divisiveness political tribalism and polarization that is keeping individuals apart and stopping some from giving their best to country and each other.
He made the statements at the "Can It Be" concert held at the Windsor Park Stadium Thursday, recognizing two years post Hurricane Maria.
He says in many countries after natural disasters, in the absence of water, electricity and basic supplies, diseases spread and people die.

DAIC President Kenneth Green cries foul on DLP Government’s rushed announcement of a public holiday tomorrow Thursday, although he is pleased about the idea of a thanksgiving event planned for Thursday
DAIC President Kenneth Green cries foul on DLP Government’s rushed announcement of a public holiday tomorrow Thursday, although he is pleased about the idea of a thanksgiving event planned for Thursday.
Green is pleased about the praise & thanksgiving event planned by the government, however he says categorically the way in which the announcement of a holiday was rushed, is confusing & disappointing.
Dominica’s President Charles Savarin and Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit announced that September 19 would be deemed a holiday to commemorate the passing of Hurricane Maria on September 18, 2017, which took the lives of several Dominicans. However, this decision to make the day a public holiday came after the fact that the Prime Minister had initially announced a half day of work for public officers on that day.
Speaking to Q95 FM on 18th September 2019, Green explained his position on the issue, as a number of private sector groupings and business owners are upset about the manner in which Prime Minister Skerrit had imposed his decision on the private sector.

A small group of gangsters have taken it upon themselves to make our passports the currency of trade and development says Agronomist and Social Activist Athie Martin
A small group of gangsters have taken it upon themselves to make our passports the currency of trade and development, says human rights activist, agronomist and former Agriculture Minister Atherton Martin.
Martin was hosting the ‘governance and the economy’ program aired on Qfm last night, when he commented on the gangster-like trend that some politicians have taken in Dominica.
One of the points of concern in this discussion was the fact that the country’s passport has been seen as tradable commodity in the international market, and on which the country’s development now appears to depend, says Martin.
This “group of gangsters” has made our passport an attraction on the international market says Martin.
