The unity drum was being heard all over the land and the Congress of the People (COP) is pleased to dance to that music, acting political leader Wendy Lee Yuen told a huge crowd at the Voice of the People rally in Saith Park, Chaguanas, yesterday. She said the COP represented the dreams of the 148,000 people who voted for the party in the October 2007 general election and, like them, all nationals were aware of the litany of woes that afflicted the nation particularly in crime, health and the public utilities sector. She told her listeners they must emulate John F Kennedy and ask not what their country could do for them, but what they could do for their country.
"I ask you to build bridges between each other that are strong enough to support us all," Lee Yuen declared. She wanted to be sure children were able to fulfil their potential, and those who were huddled behind locked doors because of fear of crime could emerge to reclaim their nation. COP, she swore, was committed to joining hands with all present on the Voice of the People platform to win the Government at the next general election.
