Several full Cepep crews turned
up at the Parliament building yes-
terday to work for a day s wage,
without their wackers, rakes or
But the hedges were already
trimmed, grounds swept clean and
there was no litter in sight.
Instead they came carrying placards,
some wearing yellow T-shirts, others
in regular clothing as they stood, sat
and in some cases sang songs in areas
around Parliament on Wrightson
The debate on the Constitution
(Amendment) Bill 2014, attracted a
crowd of hundreds, who mostly
ignored the contributions made by
Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bisses-
sar and Opposition leader Dr Keith
Rowley, which were broadcast on a
large screen near the Breakfast Shed.
Unlike previous protests, where
most of the crowd were divided along
the lines of red and yellow, most peo-
ple wore clothing that was not in the
dominant colours of any political
party, making it difficult to identify
who was supporting whom. It was
clear though, that a large number of
government supporters had been paid
Sitting contentedly under a large
mauve umbrella, one Port-of-Spain
resident, when questioned, said she
was told to come to the Parliament
"They told us to come and support
the constitutional reform."
When asked who gave her the
instruction, she said she worked for
Cepep and was told by her contractor
to come out.
Fyzabad resident Selwyn Jairam,
who also admitted to being a Cepep
employee encouraged by his boss to
protest, said he had come to support
"I know they are debating on the
constitutional reform. If you don t
have an MP who is doing work then
you can get rid of him."
Jairam said his MP Chandresh Shar-
ma did good work in the constituency.
He could give no examples of the good
work, however, and did not understand
the details of the bill, including the
runoff for MPs.
A woman in a yellow shirt said she
was also paid by Cepep as her friend
quickly intervened to say: "You are
not supposed to answer them."
This woman quickly stopped speak-
ing but later passed a note to this
The note read: "We cannot talk. We
working Cepep and they told us to

A man walked past waving a national flag, while
a flag salesman complained that sales were poor.
A group of women volunteered that it was part
of their duties as Cepep employees to attend.
"Yes, we are getting paid to come here, but we
are not being forced.
"They gave us the option of going out and doing
work or coming to the Parliament and I chose to
come to the Parliament," said one.
Oropouche East resident Narace Ramlackan said
he was asked to come out to support the Govern-
ment and was happy to do so.
Rain fell and people huddled under umbrellas
eating sno-cones, some silent and watchful, others
singing along to the reggae classic Get Up, Stand
Up as it blasted through speakers, which conflicted
with the audio streaming live coverage of the par-
liamentary debate to the crowd.
Cepep crews turn
up without wackers
Port-of-Spain resident Ava Subratee said she had
decided to come after reading of the "disrespect"
shown to Constitution Reform Commission (CRC)
member Dr Merle Hodge after she expressed
concerns publicly about the bill.
Hodge, who was also at Parliament yesterday,
accompanied by former gender minister Verna St
Rose -Greaves, made no comment except to say she
had come to be a part of a people's protest.
While Baptists rang bells and sang hymns, Arima
resident Clyde Pena said he was concerned about
the timing of the bill, with an election due in less
than a year.
Near the Breakfast Shed, people signed petitions
demanding that the debate on the bill should be
