Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar SC MP.

The UNC National Women’s Arm has announced their support for Mrs. Kamla Persad-Bissessar and MP for Moruga/Tableland Michelle Benjamin. The Women’s Arm also says they will not sit silently! They will fight for the rights of our citizens inside and out of the Parliament. Details follow in this press release. 

The UNC National Women’s Arm notes with interest the Press Release issued by the PNM Women’s League condemning Mrs. Kamla Persad-Bissessar and MP for Moruga/Tableland Michelle Benjamin for simply standing up for the rights of our Citizens! To the PNM Women’s League led by Credit Card Camille we say: 

The way to fight the atrocities of this PNM Government is for “women to keep showing up! to keep running for office, to keep stepping up as leaders, because the more we show up, the less power they have!” (Katie Hill) 

We will not sit silently! We will fight for the rights of our citizens inside and out of the Parliament! 

The PNM Women’s League will not scare off other women who dare to take risks! Who dare to step into this light! Who dare to be powerful and speak out against this PNM led Government! 

It is absolutely despicable that the PNM Women’s Leagues turns a blind eye to the suffering that is currently being faced by citizens and chose instead to attack Mrs. Kamla Persad-Bissessar and Ms. Michelle Benjamin for being powerful and vocal women! This Women’s League has shown their subservience and nauseating fawning behavior for the Prime Minister and Attorney General who can do no wrong, in true battered wife syndrome behavior! 

To the PNM Women’s League we say that your time would be better spent showing concern for the women of Trinidad and Tobago who have lost their jobs and incomes over the past two years, for the children who are being denied an education because they don’t have devices or connectivity, for those increasing numbers of women heads of households that cannot afford to feed their families. You must also make sure to call out your leader when he speaks of “horny goat weed” and his much worse public vulgarities. 

The PNM Women’s League needs to follow the example of the courageous women of the UNC like the Hon. Kamla Persad-Bissessar and MP Michelle Benjamin, as they fight for the women, men and children of this country, against the War which your party has declared. 

The UNC Women’s Arm stands with Kamla and Michelle as we fight for the people!
