Solid support for recent protests signals a political shift and people’s yearning for change, says Symister

Attorney-at-law Leon Chaku Symister says the large turnout at  recent picket actions, especially by young people, is a demonstration that residents are sick and tired of the Gaston Browne Administration.

Several protests have been mounted by the Candidates of the  United Progressive Party, including at the Ministry of Education and the Social Security Scheme.  Other actions have been organized and staged by the Freedom Fighters of Antigua and Barbuda in protest of the State of Emergency and the vaccination mandates.

Based on what is taking place, Symister says, he sees a political shift coming.  He says the people are at their wits’ end with the Antigua Labour Party Administration, which seems focused only on enriching itself and its members.

Symister says  there is a renewed energy among the people and a yearning for change and good governance.
