NDP Caucus offers support to protestors
When a crowd of protesters converges on Confederation Building today to protest the government’s decision not to open the House of Assembly for debate, Lorraine Michael and members of the NDP caucus will be there to welcome them.
Organized by the Occupy NL movement that has been ongoing at Harbourside Park in St. John’s for more than a week, today’s protest will be joined by the provincial labour movement and the students’ union at Memorial University.
“I think it is very important that our caucus support Occupy NL and their call to open the House of Assembly for Debate,” said NDP leader Lorraine Michael today.
“This march and demonstration should be a clear sign to the Dunderdale government that the people of this province want open and transparent democracy. I hope the Premier will listen to, and act on, their message.”
