The opposition United Workers Party (UWP) will host its highly anticipated “1,000 Patriots March” today, against what the party leader, Lennox Linton calls social and economic injustices in Dominica. The march which starts in Roseau, will culminate in a public meeting at Lindo Park in Goodwill, today 28th July, from 4:30 pm.
Linton says “This is a march for jobs, for justice, for improving the quality of life, reduction in the cost of living, electoral reform, and for so many things that we want to see happen in Dominica that are not happening. It’s a march against child abuse, against the abuse of government funds, and the lack of transparency that we see in the handling of our monies from the sale of passports.”
Linton noted that there are a number of things that are injuring the interest of the people of Dominica, and is calling on them to stand up, and take advantage of the opportunity to let their voices be heard during the “1,000 Patriots March” and at the meeting thereafter.
He added that patriots from the north-east will also join in the march to further raise their concerns over a new National Hospital in Marigot. He said “The people of the north-east are enraged about this, and will be coming down on Thursday to show their disgust. There are a number of things that are upsetting the people of Dominica, and it is important that people let those in government know, that what they are doing is absolutely unacceptable.”
