Linden leaders believe the administration may be making deliberate moves to stymie talks

The Region 10 Team which has been negotiating with the government, the concerns of protesting Lindeners believe that the administration may be making deliberate moves to stymie the talks and allow that to affect the negotiations which they say have been promising. Their statement come in response to the joint services action at Linden this morning around 2 o clock to clear the roads.

Tear gas was fired off, residents protested and a number of buildings including the GRA Linden officer were gutted by fire. Lindeners have been urged to remain calm as the region 10 team said they will go ahead with talks and bring the situation to a completion.

The Government is also coming under fire for allowing the army to dump flyers on the town saying that such a move created a tenseness that was not needed as the talks continued. It’s not a war zone they said.

And the President’s missive to the Private Sector that they do not run his office is also being criticized.

The Joint Services early this morning launched Operation Final Push, sending additional troops to Linden to clear the roads. Lindeners have been protesting for over 3 weeks now, on the first day of the protests 3 protestors were shot and killed when the police opened fire on the crowd. That action by the police triggered off the current situation.
