While there, they are expected to host a number of events with nationals of St. Kitts and Nevis who are now residing in that country.
On Saturday 7th December, 2013, the opposition members who form a coalition called “Team Unity” will meet with nationals in Harlem, New York, during a cocktail and rally fundraiser, at 7:00pm. The following day, Sunday 8th December, the team will engage Kittitians and Nevisians in an important “You Speak We Listen” dialogue, also in Harlem, at 4:30pm.
Both events are slated to be held at 350 West 115th Street, Basement Level, between Manhattan and Morningside Avenues.
The opposition politicians are hoping to focus their presentations on issues that are currently affecting the people of the federation at this time.
It is also their plan to encourage citizens residing in the US to support their push for a unity government, following the next elections.
A release from the group said that the Unity Partners are expecting hundreds of nationals to attend, and “take an active and fired up role in the dynamic shifting of the political status quo in the federation.”
According to the release, “The partners of Team Unity have made it clear; the current political, social and economic state of the federation of St. Kitts and Nevis is woefully unacceptable and it begs for a dynamic restructuring in order to restore the once economically sound independent nation to the enviable heights for which it was once renowned.”
The opposition coalition is comprised of candidates and sitting parliamentarians from the People’s Action Movement, (PAM), Concerned Citizens Movement, CCM and the People’s Labour Party, PLP.
The group say they are “fired up for North AAmerica”.
