Now highway activists planting trees on route
Activists of the Highway Re-route Movement have started planting trees on land designated for Government’s $7.2 billion highway. The activists said they would seek international aid for their fight against the State. They want an alternative route for the Debe to Mon Desir Highway and the relocation of Carisal, a chemical complex. Led by University of the West Indies lecturer Dr Wayne Kublalsingh, the activists planted banana trees, coconuts, pineapples, sugar apples and cassava trees on the land, which was ploughed shortly after dawn. As she planted a coconut tree, resident Ameena Mohammed said: “This is our land. We taking it back. We don’t need permission from anybody.”
