PRESIDENT OF the Democratic Labour Party (DLP), Verla De Peiza, is telling all who want to be part of her leadership to take on the ruling Barbados Labour Party Government to get with the programme.

She was speaking Sunday evening at a DLP Christ Church zonal meeting entitled A Cry Of The People: A Thorough Analysis Of Our National Situation, part of the Errol Walton Barrow centennial celebrations. The meeting was held at Deighton Griffith School, Kingsland, Christ Church.

De Peiza told members of the party: “Get on board; get with the programme. What I am looking at from up here has made the grey hairs of the last 18 months worth it.

“I make no pretence and you will certainly agree that it is when you are down and you are being kicked that your true mettle and personality comes to the fore.

“Some run for cover but others come out fighting. You tonight represent the fighters,” she said to loud cheers from the audience.

“What we are witnessing in the last 18 months has been a slaughter of the people on the altar of economic expedience, to the point where the cries of the people are rising up on a daily basis. (JS)
