HRM Tyre of Shame

By Richardson Dhalai Monday, February 17 2014

ENVIRONMENTAL lobbyist Dr Wayne Kublalsingh and the Highway Re-Route Movement (HRM) have embarked on phase two of its “Tyre of Shame” campaign by hanging old tyres at the constituency office of Oropouche East MP Dr Roodal Moonilal; Debe Regional offices of NIDCO and at the Suchit Trace, Debe, work site of Brazilian contractor OAS yesterday.

The “Tyre of Shame” campaign is intended to publicly shame officials the HRM believes have failed the national community.

Last month, the HRM hung a tyre at the front gate of Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s private residence at Philippine, south Trinidad.

Kublalsingh said the tyre and the red piece of cloth which was hung with the tyre were “badges of misconduct” and the prime minister was the first recipient because of her failure to abide by the James Armstrong report concerning the Debe to Mon Desir highway segment.

Yesterday, the group did the same at the three locations. At the OAS work site, Kublalsingh and his group explained the reason for them being on the site. They proceeded to hang tyres on two tractors.

The group then went to Moonilal’s Oropouche East constituency office where Kublalsingh again hung a tyre on the doors to the office.

“This is part of a campaign for social, economic, financial and ecological justice. This is a badge of shame and dishonour for him (Moonilal) including the Prime Minister and all members of her Cabinet who have misconducted themselves in a very flagrant way, they have abused the people roundly for three years and they deserve a tyre,’ Kublalsingh said.
