Residents of Vieux Fort who are convinced that they will be disadvantaged by the Desert Star Holdings Development proposed for the south if the island mounted protest action ahead of today Parliament session.

The head of the group Betrand Fevrier spoke to RCI news, noting that the picket is the first of many moves planned in the push to stop the Chinese development project.

He contends that the livelihoods of many residents are at stake, due to the project that he believes has sparked environmental and other concerns.

Fevrier believes that the move has caught the attention of the Prime Minister and the group will continue to monitor government’s response.

He stressed that the protests will intensify if government continues with its plans for the DSH project.

Fevrier says a series of protests will continue into the new year until residents are satisfied that their interests are protected.
