Squatters’ plea


Share post:


That was the plea yesterday from a number of squatters at The Belle, St Michael and Rock Hall, St Philip. They said they had no interest in living in the controversial areas rent-free.

Some of the squatters also said they were disappointed that their parliamentary representatives over the years had not done more to defend their interests.

Allex Wood, a father of seven who has lived in The Belle area for almost ten years, said that he was there because he could not afford to rent elsewhere. Everyone is entitled to “a corner of the earth to call their own”, he said.

“Yes, they’re people who like to live free but we are willing to pay,” he said.
