The Faithful Nationals (FN) have intensified their effort to address what they describe as the multiple controversies in Antigua and Barbuda as they continue to receive increased support at their regular protests.
Yesterday, the Coalition gathered in Heritage Quay to picket against the Global Ports Agreement.
“I think the money should be spent with the locals for the locals. You should control your own harbours; you shouldn’t give it all away. You work hard for it, you deserve it. You got your independence, keep it,” a tourist from the United States said.
When asked if he thought the protest was disrupting his experience as a
visitor, he said, “I think it’s good. I think it brings attention to what you’re trying to do.”
“I actually thought it was a parade and I was happy to watch,” the New Hampshire man added.
With around 300 participants spread across both sides of Thames Street chanting “Port giveaway; wicked set of people” and “Global Ports must go; the people say so,” the outcry of the FNs reverberated throughout St. John’s.
The protestors were passionate about the cause they are representing, and reiterated their desire to secure the future for their children and grandchildren.
