REGIONAL: Antigua PM Warns Protestors
In wake of recent pickets by opposition groups against government policies, Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister, Hon. Gaston Browne has issued a stern warning that he will not tolerate any action that will “stymie” economic development.
In his address on Wednesday 9th at the VC Bird Day celebration, the country’s leader said, “We believe in the diverse views; we believe in constructive criticism; that is how you will be able to hold my Government responsible and to ensure we perform, but we will not believe in destruction and we will stand against destruction.”
The Prime Minister accused protesters of seeking to “confront law enforcement,” but opposition United Progressive Party spokesman, Damani Tabor dismissed the PM’s comments as an attempt to intimidate the populace.
