Hundreds turn out for launch of Farley’s Tobago People’s Party

The Tobago People’s Party (TPP) led by interim political leader Farley Augustine, finally unveiled its logo and colour to supporters on the sister isle on Sunday.

Secretary of Health Dr Faith BYisrael, told those gathered for the launch at the Milford Road Layby (Stage In The Sea), Milford Road, Scarborough, that they would continue to fight for Tobago, just as they started too while attached to the PDP.

She said the THA executive, which last December distanced itself from the PDP, has performed creditably amid friction with Central Government.

“A year and eight months (into power), they have seen more development on this island than they have done for the last decade. We build more roads; we did more surgeries; we pay more gratuity…

“Imagine we were able to do all that in the middle of the whole setta bacchanal. If they had just leave we to work, what would we have accomplished. That is why they are afraid.
“They have now trained all their guns figuratively and at times it seems literally on the people of Tobago. Tobago, Tobagonians, we are at war.

“You now need to decide what you are going to do. Are you going to roll over, lay down, let they do what they want to you? Or are you going to stand up and say, ‘No, no more.'”

She called on TPP supporters to run anybody they see wearing a red jersey and attempting to speak to them. “Go from here,” she urged them to say.
