Parliamentary Opposition Leader & leader of the United Workers Party, Lennox Linton says walking is nothing more than exercising a right and freedom provided in the Constitution of 1978
Speaking in the village of Salisbury on Wednesday evening where a walk of peace, justice and prosperity was held, Opposition leader and leader of the United Workers Party Lennox Linton said walking is nothing more and nothing less than exercising a right and freedom provided in the Constitution of 1978, and the walk which occurred in Salisbury is no exception, as it falls under the right of free movement, association, communication within the framework of freedom of expression. Linton added that the gathering and communication among each other is called freedom of assembly and association, and this too falls under the rights enshrined in the constitutional.
Linton added that the country does not belong to those in authority, but instead it belongs to all ofthe people, and everyone who believes that the country belongs to the people must work hard to get their neighbors involved in ensuring that remains the case. He added that he is being criticized on social media for saying that the people have a responsibility to stand up for themselves, because this is not a one man’s responsibility, but it is in fact everyone’s responsibility. Linton advises Dominicans there will come a point where they will have to stand up for their rights.
Leader of the opposition, Hon. Lennox Linton.
