“Close the border, close the border.” That was the cry from citizens outside the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain on Thursday night, mere metres away from a heavy police presence and Venezuelans who are trying to register to work in this country.
Led by Kia Hosein and Winston Ragoo, over 100 frustrated citizens voiced their disapproval with the Government’s decision to allow Venezuelans to register and work for one year in TT.
Hosein, speaking on a microphone, said to her followers that they must take their protest to Parliament. “We can’t stay up whole night, but we not moving. The news stations will tape that we did not move, the whole world will know we did not move, the country will know we stand up and we did not move and that is most important. We are not going to stay shouting all night, but we not moving. We are taking a peaceful march from here with the protection from the police service to the Parliament office where we will get comfortable.”
