Community Activist and well known supporter of the United National Congress, Garth Christopher is presently on his 5th day of a hunger strike. He is protesting notice handed to him to evacuate The LEMRA Community Impact Complex, which is located at Dos Santos Street in Morvant. Christopher, a Power 102.1FM talkshow host, believes the move is politically motivated.
News Power Now understands that Christopher has been ordered to leave the premises by November 12th. When given the letter of eviction by Head of the North West Regional Health Authority, Acting CEO Anthony J Moore, Christopher said no reason was given for the move.
The LEMRA Community Impact Complex utilizes a space that was, prior to Christopher’s involvement, in a state of disrepair. “The centre provides a safe haven for all students in the area. Students from Malick Secondary school also use this facility which supports students particularly involved in the Arts and Information Technology,” he said.
