This is a map showing the highway segments proposed to be built by the Government of Trinidad and Tobago in the south western part of Trinidad, West Indies.
The construction of one of these segments, between Debe and Mon Desir, will have extremely negative impacts: 1. Permanent flooding as a result of the construction of a 9.3 km embankment across the Debe-Mon Desir region 2. Destruction of over 300 homes of peaceful, honest and law-abiding citizens 3. Destruction of hundreds of acres of prime agricultural lands 4. Drain on the treasury - this segment will cost an estimated 4 billion TT dollars
Action groups are protesting for the Debe-Mon Desir segment to be re-routed to a path that will eliminate all these harmful impacts.
But the Government of Trinidad and Tobago has turned a blind eye to these concerns...they have taken an anti-people stance in this matter...but they shall not be allowed to trample the constitutional rights of the people...!
