All is forgiven between leader of the
Highway Re-Route Movement (HRM)
Dr Wayne Kublalsingh and chairman
of the Independent Liberal Party (ILP)
Warner, who visited Kublalsingh s
camp just before 11 am yesterday, firmly
held the hand of the environmental
activist and offered him words of com-
Kublalsingh and members of the HRM
have set up a camp outside the Office
of the Prime Minister, St Clair, in protest
against the State s decision to construct
a Debe to Mon Desir segment as part
of the Solomon Hochoy Highway exten-
sion into Point Fortin.
Kublalsingh completed Day 20 of his
hunger strike yesterday.
Warner, who said he felt good about
visiting Kublalsingh, added: "I made my
peace with him before but I felt I had
to visit him again before he loses his
senses... everything is forgiven.
"I did tell him I was misguided before
but now my eyes are open. When you
are inside the UNC it is easy to mistake
the woods for the trees."
On seeing a gaunt-looking Kublalsingh
Warner said he felt moved but did not
try to persuade him to stop the strike
because it was not his place to do so.
"I don t think it was prudent of me
to do so because his mind is made up
but I was very moved to see him in that
condition. It is not easy to see someone
weaken like that before your very eyes,"
He said he intended to pay future
visits to Kublalsingh but did not want
them to turn into a "circus."
To help champion the HRM s cause,
Warner said, he intended to write about
Kublalsingh s struggles in the Sunshine.
Kublalsingh noted that his father, Ray
Kublalsingh, and Warner were very good
On whether he believed Prime Min-
ister Kamla Persad-Bissessar should
have an audience with the group Warner
said he had nothing to say about the
Day 20 of hunger strike...

Kublalsingh when he embarked on
the first hunger strike some two

High School Warner had described
Kublalsingh as a conman who was

Warner said: "They say the Prime
Minister is killing Wayne
Kublalsingh, but he is killing himself
and he better do it quickly! Don't
feel sorry for him. Kublalsingh is
trying to blackmail the country and
blackmail the Prime Minister."
Another visit by Kublalsingh's
physician Dr Asante Van West-
Charles-Le Blanc has proved that
the environmentalist is in a
critical but stable stage.
Van West-Charles-Le Blanc
who monitored Kublalsingh's
heart beat and tested his blood
sugar said he had a very restful

stable but critical condition. I
think from last Friday to now
there has not been much of a

"Medicine in physiology
dictates that after 20 days of no
food or water compensation
mechanisms are eventually
going to decompensate.
"When I say stable but critical I
am not seeing signs of
impending death today but
because of how long its been I
do think we are at a critical point.
"But I do have an ambulance
on standby for him," Van West-
Charles-Le Blanc said.
She maintained there has
been no decline in Kublalsingh's
Asked to compare
Kublalsingh's present condition
to when he completed Day 20 of
his first hunger strike Van West-
Charles-Le Blanc said:
"Compared to the last fast he
is a lot better. I have not
hydrated him, via IV drip. I
basically just monitored him and
I have just done some blood
tests... that's all I have done.
There has been no medical
Asked about his condition
Kublalsingh said he was feeling
weak and dehydrated.
"I think I had a very bad
weekend. My mind kept moving
away from my spirit which is
normally strong and I just kept
thinking about a beastly cold
bottle of smalta or malta and a
cup of hot tea with some crix in
it," Kublalsingh added.
Responding to a letter by his
wife Dr Sylvia Moodie-
Kublalsingh calling on Persad-
Bissessar to be reasonable and
let good sense prevail,
Kublalsingh said he was not
surprised by the letter.
He said his wife was a strong
Roman Catholic and was against
