Thief snatches $58,000
from woman's handbag ALL FOR THE NEEDY
It took 59-year-old farmer Wilfred Edwards five
hours to walk from the D Abadie home of Highway
Re-Route Movement (HRM) leader Dr Wayne
Kublalsingh to the Office of the Prime Minister in
St Clair to deliver two letters yesterday.
The walk coincided with International Anti-Cor-
ruption Day yesterday.
Edwards, who said he was the industrial relations
consultant for the Point Fortin/Guapo/La Brea Farm-
ers Association, began the gruelling journey along
the Eastern Main Road just after 6 am.
In spite of the heat, Edwards said he never felt
like giving up, as he had mentally and physically
"It wasn t easy. It was hard and it was gruelling
but I prepared myself and I made it."
Edwards said the walk was not a relay walk, as
originally planned, with other members taking part
at various points, but added, "When I reached the
lighthouse in Port-of-Spain, a HRM supporter met
me and then we walked to the Office of the Prime
Minister. We were greeted by a messenger who took
On his immediate plans, he said he was resting,
as his back and calves were hurting.
Contacted yesterday, Kublalsingh lauded Edwards
for his effort and his unwavering support for the
HRM s cause. He said his friendship with Edwards
spanned several years as they had a history of activism
together, including stopping plans under former
prime minister Patrick Manning to build aluminium
smelters in Chatham and La Brea.
Kublalsingh yesterday marked 84 days of his second
hunger strike in protest against the Debe to Mon
Desir section of the highway.
Farmer delivers letters
to PM after 5-hour walk
JCC update today
The Joint Consultative Council (JCC) is
expected to hold a press conference today to
give an update on its progress with respect to
Nidco's response on the Armstrong report.
The JCC will also make a statement on the
next step regarding the Procurement Reform Bill.

The two letters were titled, "Response by the
Highway Reroute Movement on Nidco's comments
on the Armstrong Report" and a "Pattern of
Abuse" which outlines the HRM's allegations of
mistreatment of its members by the State.
For years, the HRM has fought the State's
decision to construct a highway between Debe and
Mon Desir, as part of the highway mega project,
but the group has maintained its support for the
main artery into Point Fortin.
The HRM claimed the Government embarked on
a four-year campaign to escalate and prolong the
impasse relating to the Debe to Mon Desir
segment of the Solomon Hochoy Highway
extension to Point Fortin.
The group also claimed that propaganda was
used to vilify and deliberately distort its message.
