YOUR CHANCE TO
EARN EXTRA INCOME
"Wayne Kublalsingh will die
and I will attend his funeral."
These were the words of former
Port-of-Spain mayor Louis Lee
Sing yesterday, as he spoke to the
media after visiting environmen-
talist Dr Wayne Kublalsingh on
day seven of his second hunger
strike outside of the Office of the
Prime Minister in St Clair.
Lee Sing s prediction came even
as the Highway Re-route Move-
ment plans to reveal an alternative
route for the Debe to Mon Desir
leg of the Point Fortin Highway
today, and masman Peter Minshall
yesterday added his voice to the
Lee Sing, like Kublalsingh, was
dressed completely in black yes-
terday. He had just come from
attending a second funeral this
"He is going to die here. I will
come to his funeral; remember, I
told you that," Lee Sing said.
"Left to (Prime Minister) Kamla
Persad-Bissessar, Wayne Kublals-
ingh is going to die here and I will
come to his funeral and nobody is
going to do anything thereafter.
This (the highway) will then die
He said the population had
shown a level of indifference on
the current issue, adding Section
34, which he considered a "dose
of arsenic" on this country s laws,
had already been forgotten.
"Wayne is on a slippery slope
and he is sliding on that slope and
the nation is on top of him, bring-
ing him down," he said.
Lee Sing said he had told
Kublalsingh not to start the second
hunger strike as the Government
did not care an iota whether he
lived or died.
Despite his doubt that Kublals-
ingh would receive a response from
the Prime Minister, Lee Sing still
commended him for putting his
country before his life.
"This is not a Government that
you can find anything decent,
noble or honest to attribute to it,"
he said, adding that he felt under
the People s National Movement
administration Kublalsingh would
at least have received a hearing.
Kublalsingh, who wrote to acting
Prime Minister Errol Mcleod on
Monday and Foreign Affairs Min-
ister Winston Dookeran yesterday
Kublalsingh lays out succession plan
seeking assistance to help facilitate a
meeting with Persad-Bissessar, said he
did not feel his body could last much
The activist said he would have seen
a doctor for the first time yesterday
since he began this hunger strike.
The Highway Re-Route Movement
(HRM) will head to South Trinidad
today with a new proposal for the high-
way to be re-routed, Kublalsingh said.
He said the HRM had made a new pro-
posal which took the work Government
had already begun into consideration
and revised its initial proposal to include
work already completed.
"I think this new proposal is a beau-
tiful solution, I think it would add con-
nectivity. I think it is a win-win solution
and if the Prime Minister and Govern-
ment are sincere then they will take it
seriously," Kublalsingh said.
"They have already broken down
houses. I think this new solution, which
dovetails with that, would be good for
When asked about the various pre-
dictions that he would die as a result
of his latest hunger strike, he said, "I
embarked on the mission of the hunger
strike not to die but to live.
"I am not going to die here, I am
going to live but if it comes to death
I will not mind facing it. I have no
qualms about dying. Dying is very easy
for me. I am at peace, I am very calm."
He said in the event of his death, the
fight would continue.
"I have spoken to David Abdulah
and I feel he understands what is hap-
pening and he would be very capable
of leading the group."
Abdulah will take my place Celebrated masman Peter Minshall
yesterday spoke out on the issue of the
highway, saying that a re-route of the
Debe to Mon Desir section made sense.
In a letter yesterday, Minshall said, "The
problem is that the re-routing of the
highway makes no money for the 'friends
and family' of the Government."
Minshall, who visited the OPM last
week with two other concerned citizens
to call for a revisit of the Armstrong
report, said only a very small portion of
the highway was in contention for the re-
routing, from Debe to Mon Desir, "nine
miles at most."
"The Highway Re-route Movement
does not demand, nor has ever demanded
the complete abandonment of a highway,
and has indeed called for an overall
improvement of the entire roadway
system of the southland."
He described the route chosen by
Government as "ill-advised, absurd
madness," as it entailed the destruction
of a mountain, "which is then to be carted
cross-country to be dumped in a lagoon,
thereupon to build a road."
"The Government simply cannot afford
to come to the table. The deck is
forbiddingly stacked against its position.
Scientific expertise over-rules it. Principles
of efficiency and wise spending rule it out.
"The government's case for its
highway clearly makes no sense.
Shockingly, the government's point of
view seems to be that 'making money'
for personal gain trumps 'making sense'
for public benefit."
He called the current Debe to Mon
Desir section of the highway "an
