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.

  2. This march is pointless. Kenny is a organized party. So march to send a strong massege out there to tell ALL POLICE and CIVIL SERVANT to stop work if they want UWP to take over written on placards, AND IF POLICE AND CIVIL SERVENT STOP WORK THEN YOU KNOW THAT YOU AS UWP PARTY CAN TAKE OVER. .THEN INSTRUCT THE POLICE TO SEIZE KENNY OFFICE. and thow HIM Kenny OUT

  3. Nothing wrong with marching. But why march with a party which is woefully disorganized and proved to be a disaster in government? Moreover the march is against a stable and united government. I wouldn't waste my time; but let the people march.

  4. We need meaningful demonstrations that bring results. They should not be shows to demonstrate support, particularly leading up to elections. Who actually benefits in all this ? This is a campaign exercise whose participants are singing for their dinner.
