“ON THE ROAD”/RUN-WALK AROUND TT CAMPAIGN – OCTOBER 21, 2019 (TO BE CONTINUED POST-COVID) The “On The Road Campaign” of the Green Party will be launched at 9.00 A.M. October 21, 2019 from California in Central Trinidad, with the political leader of the Green Party, Dr. Everold Hosein, beginning a national run-walk (extended over several months) from where he was born through all the electoral districts of Trinidad and Tobago, more or less following the road route in the map on this website for both Trinidad and Tobago. The launch will take place at the junction of Southern Main Road, California and Dow Village/Railway Station Road. It will begin at the house he was brought up in, next door to Croisee Supermarket, which once housed one-room barrack type housing and where he was born. https://maps.me/catalog/shops/shop-supermarket/croisee-supermarket-9223372037246096029/
On this run/walk road trip, Dr. Hosein will visit (where allowed) pre-schools, primary schools, hospitals, health centres, local parks, community centres, garbage disposal sites, etc. Each night will be spent at some local resident’s home, if such hospitality is offered. Evening meetings and discussions with local residents will be held where possible. In these discussions, Dr. Hosein hopes to explore with residents their aspirations for making Trinidad and Tobago a fantastic Trinidad and Tobago.
The “On the Road Campaign” will move south from California to Savonetta, Phoenix Park, down south, to Icacos, then the southern side of TT to Mayaro, etc…Please see map of route on this website for both Trinidad, and Tobago, under “Transformation Agenda”- Party Launch and Post-Launch Campaign.
Anyone can join Dr. Hosein on the run/walk. You are invited. In 2016 Dr. Hosein had a heart attack, according to his doctors, and got a stent and a pacemaker. But he continued running the NYC Marathon. This year 2019 he will run his 35th NYC Marathon, inshallah! He hopes not to have another heart attack while doing the On the Road Campaign. (Update:The run/walk will be continued post-COVID, dates to be announced)
