On Wednesday, the Highway Re-Route Movement, along with Kublalsingh noted that they had not forgotten action taken against them in June 2012 by former national security minister, Jack Warner…

Dr. Kublalsingh is on the road to physical recovery after his 21-day hunger strike outside the office of Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar last November, during which he took neither food nor drink.

He is not at this time hinting at another hunger-strike, though he has commented that he is willing to give his life for the sake of the Movement, which he said represents a national problem of poor governance and not just the concerns of one community.

The Movement is protesting a leg of the Highway that will see at least 200 families being relocated, most of them from large parcels of land that have been handed down for several generations.
