Dominica’s Prime Minister condemns protest action taken by citizens

Protesters trying to cancel national elections blocked roads leading to the main airport on the eastern Caribbean island of Dominica on Tuesday, forcing passengers to drag suitcases through the street to make their flights.

Supporters of the opposition United Workers’ Party set up burning roadblocks on the two main roads leading to Douglas-Charles Airport. Some passengers were forced to walk more than a mile to the airport.

Seaborne Airlines, which flies to Dominica from Puerto Rico, cancelled its sole Tuesday flight “due to the uncertain situation,” according to a statement on its website.

Dominica’s Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit addressed the nation tonight condemning actions taken by citizens.
