PROTESTERS WAKE UP FLOW

  • Written by  Rawle Paterson
PROTESTERS WAKE UP FLOW

It was a wake-up call for local telecommunications company FLOW, as several disgruntled customers openly showed their feelings on Friday in front of the company’s main office in Hillsborough as part of a national protest.

On Friday morning persons armed with powerfully worded placards simultaneously took to the company five operation centers from Petite Martinique in the north to Grand Anse in the south.

The protest was organized and coordinated by local activist, Valarie Thompson who began planning the protest on the observance of World Consumer Day back on March 15th.

However, unable to speak as their lips were bound with duct tape, the protesters allowed the words of their placards to speak to their disappointment in a service, which they are paying for on a monthly basis.

Some of the cards read— ‘FLOW no signal–we did not discuss that—shame on you’, ‘Flow gets richer, Poor get poorer’, ‘ten-month-old baby could read –no signal’, ‘less channels more money’, ‘they say 78 cents a minute we say stupes’, ‘Lime plus FLOW is disastrous’ and ‘No Signal, No Service and No rebate’.

The protest was supported by several passers-by who expressed solidarity with those who were not afraid to send a strong message of disappointment to the telecommunications provider.

Thompson said that she was impressed with the show of solidarity by those who turned out.  She pointed out that there were good numbers at all five outlets including Petite Martinique.

The protest she said sent a clear and definite message to FLOW, that its service is way below what customers are paying for.
