Protest march to take place in St Lucia against multibillion dollar project

A national protest march is planned in Vieux-Fort, Saint Lucia, on Sunday against a proposed multibillion-dollar, so-called ‘Pearl of the Caribbean’ project, to be funded by the country’s citizenship by investment programme (CIP).
