Fixin’ T&T declares midday Friday protest against ‘dangerous’ Gov’t

The following is a media release by local civic group, Fixin’ T&T:

Fixin’ T&T reiterates our position that the People’s Partnership Government is dangerous and a threat to our freedom and democracy.

The Kamla Persad-Bissessar Administration’s naked attempt to subvert the Police’s and Integrity Commission’s investigations into the ‘Emailgate’ fiasco is not surprising.

It is consistent with their ongoing demonstration of utter contempt for due process, natural justice, our Parliament and our Constitution; examples of which can be found in:

·         The ill conceived and possibly unconstitutional State of Emergency

·         Section 34

·         The illegal use of our Army to destroy the Re-Route Movement’s camp

·         The failed attempts to give soldiers powers of arrest

·         Attempts to interfere with the way we vote without consultation (the Run-off)

·         Prison-Gate

·         Relentless attacks on our Media and Media Personnel

·         Relentless attacks on our Independent Institutions and their Officers

·         Government and the Speaker’s assuming of the role of judge, jury and executioner in the removal of an elected official from our Parliament

As it stands, facilitated by Speaker of the House Wade Mark, our Parliament has been hijacked and reduced to a political campaign platform for the government.

Mrs Persad-Bissessar must no longer be allowed to delay the announcement of the election date.

We the people must, before it is too late, intervene and put an end to this abuse by insisting on and accepting nothing less than General Elections now!

To this end Fixin’ T&T will be at the Waterfront outside of our Parliament tomorrow (Friday) from 12 noon.

We implore the people of Trinidad and Tobago to join us. Our freedom and democracy are at stake.

  1. I heard one of them said on TV that he not buying no house for 1.00 because it old who going to fix it , he should be in the congo , i sure he did not pay a cent in the last 35 years, is only four king free thing people want.

  2. Tell them what they want to hear ,we fixing, building, cleaning, we giving the people of T&T what belongs to them and we saving , what more all yuh people want, the MP`s should go and give a pint of blood every month , that is what they want, the jack`s and them feel the blood will come out yellow.

  3. It is only an inform citizen who knows the facts and does not wait to be educated by gossip and lies by politician whose only way into office is to lie lie to the unsuspecting population who are afraid to pick up a book and read or listen to sensible conversation.

  4. You have to give Ian some credit, at least he’s not hiding. 🙂

  5. Mark Anthony Scott, my advice to you is either to ask Rachel Price or to listen to Sparrow’s calypso about the “Lizard;” you’ll probably get the same answer.

  6. Ian Gooding would love to follow a multiracial party as his marriage exemplifies there are many among us who feel neither of the two leading parties is suficiently representative of our society

  7. Anything not to acknowledge this administration’s wrongs.

  8. Eko Watts you are so right. Some ppl just not worth it.

  9. whatever you all do please don’t resort to insults my heart is only ready for legal principles

  10. Oh lorse Ian Gooding getting historical again. He should be on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

  11. I also remember Landate and Manning’s condemnation of Rowlie’s wajang behaviour. This os the kind pf leader you want?

  12. That’s not me Ian, that’s American actor Ben Affleck who plays the caped crusader in the upcoming block buster Batman vs Superman.

    Yuh must let dem dust yuh off and bring yuh out sometimes, yuh might learn something new! LOL

  13. Who is hiding Ian Gooding? Boy yuh are a real joke oui. All you could come with is coward. Boy i eh feel to deal with STUPID today.

  14. Kirk Waithe we are living in different times when all rights have been thrown out the window.

  15. When I look at the PM I see Hitler so I say Hiel Hitler.

  16. No wonder you are hiding in a batman costume. Coward.

  17. Why you didn’t tell that to Cadiz when he called his march Ian Gooding. Steups!

  18. Hi Debbie Espinal. The right to assemble is enshrined in our Constitution. We will not be obstructing vehicular or pedestrian traffic. We have no microphones or anything of the sort. We always operate within the confines of the law. Look forward to seeing you there.

  19. You should be changed for wasting people’s time.
    They should charge you by the letter for the amount of ignorance you post on facebook!

  20. More marching? These guys don’t work? They should be charged for wasting the nation’s time.

  21. And he has since gone for his 30 pcs of silver.

  22. This iincumbent needs to look at what has just happened next door in Guyana. With a more politically savvy electorate LIES and DISTRACTIONS are NOT cutting it any more. Only the dying minority of die hard voters would believe such!

  23. Hope Fixin’ T & T got permission from the Police first for this protest, of which i’m in favour, else the UNC will find a way to call this anarchy and call another illegal SOE. Everyone has to cross all their T’s and dot all their I’s cause you are dealing with desperate people.

  24. If criminal charges are laid against the political leader of the UNC who shall lead the party?

  25. If you are against
    Ill conceived and possibly unconstitutional States of Emergency

    · Section 34

  26. How could you be a witness to blatant corruption and wrongdoing on a daily basis and say things in support of it and the ppl who practice it…that is just wrong…it also says a lot about you as well.
    Are you a blind supporter like the ignoramus individuals who wore Yellow and waved Flags to support the PPG outside the Parliament but when interviewed many had no idea what they were there is support of.

  27. I will really like to know where is President Anthony Carmona in all this mess
