first_img Tweet Share 343 Views   one comment Share Residents of Salisbury have continued protest action over deplorable road condition as their demand to meet with government officials has not been met.On Monday morning the residents blocked the public road with trees and old electrical appliances in protest of deplorable road condition.They later demanded that Agriculture Minister Johnson Drigo and Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit meet with them to give some sort of assurance that their concerns were being addressed.Cabinet indicated to the protestors, through the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force, that it would meet with about ten residents to discuss the matter on Monday and that Prime Minister Skerrit would meet with the residents on Tuesday 12 May at 2:30PM.This offer was rejected by the residents and the protest action continued. Some residents hurled bottles and stones at the police officers as they attempted to clear the barricade. As a result, tear gas was released as a means of dispersing the huge crowd of protesters.Police officers attired in riot gear have arrived on the scene to attempt to resolve the escalating protest.Earlier today, Member of Parliament for the Salisbury Constituency, Hector John told Vibes Radio that the residents “will go at length to get what we rightfully deserve”.“No one will stop us today, no amount of intimidation, no amount of provocation, because we have been victimized for over fifteen years so we are seasoned right now and we will stand for what we deserve,” John said.Efforts to obtain a statement from government officials has so far proven futile.– / 7Video compliments: Kayon Shillingford https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeBfnNiole8&feature=youtu.becenter_img Sharing is caring!

I think that will help him.“This is a fair change in culture, it’s a fair distance away from his home, it’s a different language. “Most foreign players who come to the UK, particularly from Japan, are very unlikely to be speaking fluent English. He’s got that to contend with, plus the football and the weather. He has been more to forefront in the dressing room that I would have thought.” TagsLoan MarketAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
