A call was made yesterday for Vincentians who are affected in one way or the other by the crime situation in this country to picket the Administrative Centre on Bay Street, which houses the office of the Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, who is also Minister of National Security.

The call was made on Monday, by Public Relations Officer of the New Democratic Party (NDP) Ernesto Cooke.

Cooke, speaking on the Party’s New Times radio programme on Nice Radio, requested that businesses allow their employees at least one hour off to join the picket.

“Something should be done!”

“All of us need to get out there…. Come with whatever you have on. No party here; we are talking about citizens of this country. We need to come out on Friday morning and just picket that office and ask for the plans and programmes to put an end into the crime situation,” Cooke said.
