United Workers Party (UWP) supporters are set to march through Castries today.
Citizens desperate to make their concerns heard will take to the streets to show their support for the party’s call for changes to certain policies of the current Kenny Anthony administration.
The UWP is encouraging supporters to come out and support the event.
“The march is about the credibility of this government and whether people are happy,” UWP Leader Allen Chastanet has said.
The “Our Country Needs Us” protest march, as it is being referred to, is expected to start at the Vigie playing field at 5 p.m. before moving through the city and finishing in the William Peter Boulevard for “The Peoples Parliament.”
Chastanet said supporters of the ruling party are also dissatisfied because they have to face various price increases and is encouraging everyone to come out and let their voices be heard.
The UWP held a similar march in January of this year, where scores of persons protested against the 15 per cent Value Added Tax (VAT), increased water rate, high electricity costs, pending bus fare increases, reduced subsidies for transportation and other basic food items.
