Kaieteur News – Prime Minister of St. Vincent and The Grenadines, Dr. Ralph Gonsalves, has been injured amid a major protest now under way in the capital, Kingstown. The Prime Minister was hit on the head with a stone.

The protest is against changes to the Public Health Act that would make COVID-19 vaccination mandatory. Vaccination against other illnesses that trigger a public health emergency would also have been mandatory.     

The Prime Minister was on his way back to Parliament, where the amendments were scheduled to be debated on Thursday, when the incident occurred.

Video footage circulating on social media shows blood to the right side of his head as he is rushed from the area. Shouts of “shield, shield” could be heard as Prime Minister Gonsalves was covered by security forces after being hit.

    Father forgive them for they know not what they do. May the Covid ravage those who refuse to be vaccinated. What idiots exist in SVG and other places around the world who are burdening the various healthcare systems and in some cases, perhaps leaving orphans to be taken care of by society.

    OK OK we can count on you to be on standby for the firing squad? good to know.

    Nah. I never pointed or fired a gun, so I won’t be shooting anyone. On the other hand, while regrettably the Covid will do the job on some, I won’t willingly contribute to the support of their orphans but will leave that to folks such as you. Stay safe.
