Alain Ah-Vee, a LALIT leader, speaking to journalists in front of the 11 person demonstration before June 2018 budget. LALIT members not in the eleven holding the banner, were distributing leaflets (see Documents Section). The repressive law, the Public Gathering Act, allows demonstrations of less than 12 people. So, in a way, this was an action against the law, too.

Calling for the June 2018 budget to force bosses to invest in jobs in production and for Government to build housing for all -- as opposed to subsidizing cane and sugar as well as real estate scams.
