Former PM sends Labour Day warning to Team Unity, change or be dragged out

Speaking with MiyVue.com at the short rally, Dr. Douglas said he wants workers to be defiant in the face of “institutional victimization”.

“Although we show solidarity with the workers for their achievements, we are also calling upon workers to show defiance against the policies and the programs that have been, so far in ten weeks, demonstrated by the government, the policy of institutional victimization, nepotism, anti-democratic practices, undemocratic practices, withholding people’s right to register to vote, defying the governor-general in having the instruments of appointment prepared for the appointment of the leader of an opposition in a democracy,” said the former prime minister.

But he goes further to warn the ruling administration that if the alleged victimization does not stop, he would “mobilize the people”, with significant consequences.

“We say, and gave signal to the government that if it did not desist from these practices, we shall mobilize the people of this country in greater numbers, to show greater defiance, until they would have gotten the message. If they don’t get the message, we will drag them out of office,” said Dr. Douglas, as he commended the turnout to the march.

“This has been a massive show of support for the Labour Movement at this time. It was clearly a case where our people have remembered where we have come from,” said Douglas, who added, “There is solidarity with the workers, because it was the workers who worked very hard, being disciplined, dedicated, who have brought us to a prominent position over the last 20 years of our Labour Government.”

He expressed the view that workers in the country received substantial benefits, as the federation developed under his leadership. “We have compensated the workers well. We have preserved their rights. We have made it possible for them to have the highest minimum wage in the whole Caribbean region, and with their productivity, their discipline, there education as workers, we have been able to sustain St. Kitts and Nevis’ development for a brighter future,” Douglas highlighted.
