Raul Samuel, who has been trying to raise awareness about the ongoing developments at Seaforth beach, is now inviting members of the public to have a close look at the situation.
The event is scheduled for February 6, from 6 am.
“We are going to begin at Valley Road just before the Hall’s property, and we are going to walk all the way down to Seaforth. I am encouraging people to walk with their cameras, it will be more important than shoes,” he said.
Seaforth is part of 549 acres of land earmarked for the development of a Special Economic Zone (SEZ) on the northwest coast of Antigua.
A license order to establish the SEZ was granted to Millennia-Montaigne Developments (Antigua) Limited) – MMDA – in September 2021. The area granted includes 245 acres of land in Jennings and 304 acres in Five Islands.
Concerned citizens have since protested the action and Samuel launched a petition on change.org earlier this month out of his love for the area, and his conviction that it needs to be protected. The petition has since been signed by over 19,000 people.
