We understand that people were prostested for employment issue.

Questions: 1- Did the protestors have an authorization from PNH for the event?

If not, they should be arrested and prosecuted...

2- Where PNH was during the protestation occured.

If the PNH was not there to secure people or to evacuate people of the street.They shoulb be called and removed from their duties.

We cannot continue to play game with serious time
