During the meetings, the politicians, representing the Concerned Citizens Movement, CCM, People’s Action Movement, PAM and the People’s Labour Party, PLP, sought to update Kittitians and Nevisians about the latest developments taking place back in their homeland.
The overall aim of the self-styled, Team Unity delegates was designed to rally the nationals behind their cause for a change of government in St. Kitts and Nevis and for them, as citizens, though abroad, to get involved in the crusade to replace the incumbent Labour Administration of long-serving Prime Minister, Dr. Denzil Douglas.
Making up the delegation were Deputy Leader of CCM, Mark Brantley, who is also the Leader of the Opposition, Eugene Hamilton, the Deputy Leader of PAM and Dr. Timothy Harris, the leader of PLP and the man tipped by his opposition colleagues to lead any future government arising from the coalition of opposition parties, “Team Unity”.
At the various events, which included a cocktail and fundraiser on Saturday night, 6th December, 2013, and a town hall meeting on Sunday, 8th December, both in Harlem, the representatives made the pitch for unity and sought to justify that there is no other alternative, especially given the poor economic state in which the country finds itself.
During the weekend, the opportunity was also used to pay tribute to well-known activist and former politician, George Washington “Washie” Archibald, who is in the US recovering from recent illness.
