ST. GEORGE, GRENADA, NOV. 22, 2018 – It has been brought to my attention that political activists, claiming to act on behalf of the unions, are seeking to influence students in many schools, to participate in a series of protest actions, conceivably in support of striking teachers.

We appeal to parents to engage their children, to ensure that they do not get caught up in this unprecedented attempt at partisan agitation.

We have also taken note of the complaint of some parents, who have reported that their children are being lured into activities without their consent and permission.

The entire community must safeguard against students and children being used by political activists and confusion-makers. All parents should please ensure that their children remain secure and safe.

It is important that parents ensure that their children are engaged in healthy, productive exercises.

We also seek the prayers of everyone, as the Government of Grenada positively seeks to find solutions to the current impasse.

Government has already indicated its willingness to continue the dialog with the Grenada Union of Teachers and looks forward to their acceptance.

A negotiated settlement is in the interest of both teachers and students.

It is the type of dialog that opposition political activists are actively campaigning to discourage.
