Xavier Duval has posted the following message on social media :
On this May Day, we pay tribute to the enormous and daily contribution of workers in the development of the nation.
At the PMSD, we understand the difficulties associated with the high cost of living. Mauritian families are increasingly finding themselves in a financial abyss.
Providing a quality life for their loved ones, whether in terms of leisure or advancement, has become mission impossible.
This appalling situation is a direct consequence of the depreciation of the rupee, caused by mismanagement of our economy.
We are going backwards while other islands in the Indian Ocean are flourishing.
The massive exodus of the young and the not-so-young to other skies also challenges us. Mauritians choose to show their talent abroad, simply because they lack confidence in the country and the government.
As Leader of the PMSD, I stand resolutely by all the workers of Mauritius, Rodrigues and Agalega in these difficult times and I will do everything in my power to ensure that our country knows better days.
Happy Labour Day to all!
Paul Bérenger saluted all the tribunes who have marked the history of the country
The leaders of the Mauritian Militant Movement (MMM) started Labour Day with a wreath laying at the St. John’s cemetery. The leader of the MMM, Paul Bérenger saluted all the tribunes, the personalities who have marked the history of the country and the militants who have passed away. He said he especially had a special thought for Dr. Maurice Curé, Emmanuel Anquetil Guy Rozemont and Anjalay Coopen. The MMM paid their respects to the graves of activists and trade unionists who fought for workers’ rights.
