On 19 April, at 27 locations across the country the UNC stood with the people, protesting against the PNM’s oppressive policy of raising fuel prices, on the very first day at schools are fully reopened.
Instead of providing a grant for mothers and fathers who have lost their jobs or incomes because of the lockdowns, Keith Rowley and Colm Imbert have chosen to pressurise the people even more. It is like a test to see how much cruelty the people of Trinidad and Tobago can take.
The people of Trinidad and Tobago say “No!”
The UNC says “No!”
No to high fuel prices, no to high food prices, no to the skyrocketing cost of living and no to runaway crime.
The protests were led by Kamla Persad-Bissessar on the ground, with the people. Here are some photos
