Since word broke of the rumoured sale, more than 4, 500 (four thousand five hundred) Grenadians have signed a Petition to save Camerhogne Park. There are also on-line petitions in London and the New York.

The Committee to Save Camerhogne Park says it is overwhelmed by the awesome response from Grenadians, noting the tremendous interest of teachers, students, senior citizens and people in general who are calling on the government to recognise that the Park is the only available public space for recreation and social activities.

Meanwhile Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell has insisted that no decision has been finalised on the sale of the Park.

  1. How much more of our birthright will be given away by those supposedly looking out for our welfare? Shame on you!

  2. Highway Robbery. What next will you sell? The whole island?

  3. I support “Occupy Camerhogne Park”. If not any and everything, will be for sale.

  4. Isn’t it better to have the hotel, won’t this create tons of jobs for Grenadians? How many jobs are created by a park? Grenada needs something like this to boost employment.

  5. That’s the way to do it l.

  6. Follow the money trail and cut it off I was not born in Grenada but my parents were. As a boy I lived there for a while. And have the fondest memories. Please do not distroy does memories and let the beautiful island of Grenada remain in Grenadian hands.

    I totally agree. These leaders cannot keep selling our land to foreigners. It is our god given right to protest and stop this madness. Many will say it will bring in revenue, maybe for a very short time then the Egyptians will be bringing their Labour and then as you say they will try to force Islam in our beautiful island. Please folks you really don’t know these people are capable of turning our upside down and putting grenadian against each out through money. And yes many people who does not live abroad or not familiar with current affairs will not know of their capabilities. They will blind the G renadians with their 30 pieces of silver then put down their laws and remember the sharia law and women will become end class to them. Thank you for enlighten folks who really don’t know the consequences would be if this deal go head.
