Fresh off their Whit Monday holiday on June 6, scores of pensioners turned out to support the United Progressive Party’s “Senior Citizens’ Lives Matter” protest yesterday. CLICK HERE TO JOIN OUR WHATSAPP GROUP.
Pensioners, as well as middle aged young residents, joined the party’s candidates at the Social Security headquarters.
The picket followed a similar action taken on November 30 of last year.
At that time, the Scheme had owed some senior citizens for several months, some reportedly as far back as June.

7 months and up to a year without your pension, this is totally unacceptable in this day and age!
I note that since this pension payment delay has hit the headlines, our Prime Minister hasn’t come out to explain the situation.
No more ‘dead cat’ narratives, please let our elderly citizens know when they will receive their money.
It should be written in our constitution that Ministers of government should NOT receive their remunerations until ALL the public financial obligations are met. Did I read correctly that the “protesters JOINED the LO” or was it he JOINED them? Either way, he should be ashamed to show his face for a protest of such nature. Desperation make strange Bedfellows.
Lol look at the hypocricy!!!! Can’t be the same Harold Lovell who was pay pensioners and government works late there picketing. Wow politics boy. Harold Lovell and Baldwin Spenser seems to think that people have amnesia and forget that they are just as bad as this present government. Well Harold Lovell and Baldwin Spencer while some here seems to forget or pretend to forget not all of us forget. Y’all need to sit this one out and I would have gladly join the pickett if it was NOT political motivated.
NO OTHER ASPECT OF OUR HISTORY, FINANCIAL OR OTHERWISE COULD BE COMPARED TO THE HARD GUAVA CROP TIME AND STARVATION AND HUNGER PEOPLE EXPERIENCING UNDER THIS FAILED EXPERIMENT CALLED THE ABLP.
EVEN Y’ALL SUPPORTERS SHAME OF GASTON AND THE PARTY.
