COP Savannah ‘gesture’ leads to confrontation with police

The Trinidad Guardian: "Police, yesterday, ordered members of Congress of the People (COP) to cease their demonstrations on Queen’s Park Savannah in front of President’s House. To symbolise the rising crime in T&T, members of COP and its political leader Winston Dookeran assembled about 50 red cardboard human cut-outs as a “symbolic gesture” to represent some of the 509 people murdered last year. Two officers of Belmont Police Station arrived and asked Dookeran to remove the cut-outs and cease all actions. Officers asked Dookeran if had he received permission from the Queen’s Park Savannah Authority to assemble in what they called a “sensitive” area."
