Protesters face firmness

Protesters face firmness

Dams were erected at several points of the St Maarten road network on Friday morning. Hospital unions are campaigning against the obligation to vaccinate, while residents are demonstrating against the vaccination permit… and are calling for ways to develop their neighbourhoods.

This is how Saint Martin’s Day began, on Friday, October 22, 2021.
The main blocked axis was the Sandy Land Bridge. Other avenues, in the Quartier d’Orléans, or at the Agrément roundabout, were quickly cleared by the police.

This outrage in particular comes in the wake of the failure of discussions, yesterday, in the county, about applying the vaccination obligation to caregivers and hospital staff.”Louis Constant Fleming“.

At the hospital level, out of 400 people, we still have 99 contract workers. There are some who have already been told that their contract will not be renewed. We have administrative and supervisory staff already suspended. We are already in 9 comments.

Civil society is also demonstrating against the health card. Its demands are also societal.

Today, we are protesting to ask the county and the state to increase investment in the Sandy Ground. Therefore, we are asking for 10 million euros, so that we can develop the Sandy Ground. We are also protesting against the health card.

The response of the Prefecture of Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin to these disturbances was clear: a powerful gendarmerie was deployed and the governor Serge Gutierrone sent a message to the demonstrators.

Small, manipulative tyrants today attempt to manipulate the island, with the sole ambition of creating chaos and enforcing their law (the law of the strongest, the law of human traffickers, the law of the street), by mocking the cause they claim to defend, the identity of this San Martin land, upon which they gleefully trample. Where is Friendly Island? Others behave like spoiled children, who have everything, with the only whim, which is to bow to the Wali, who does not respect them. However, my door was always open.
