Mentioning a number of murder victims she said, “Stand your ground against criminals for Semion Daniel, Antonio Francois, Kevin Kyle Spring. Stand your ground against criminals for Andrea Bharratt and Ashanti Riley.”
She added, “Stand your ground against recusals, rentals, coal pots and daily bouffings by the dictator.”
Persad-Bissessar called on voters to unleash their Hulk.
She said, “Release the Hulks on Monday when you go to the voting booth. Release the anger. Release the rage. Bring out the Hulk in you on Monday.”
Speaking about her campaign, Persad-Bissessar said she wanted to wake up the population.
She said, “What I did for this campaign was to shine a light to wake up all the people.
“Many do not feel a sense of belonging, a sense of hope, a sense of responsibility.
“They live on the fringes… we have to work relentlessly with our families and communities.”
Persad-Bissessar called on people to be their brother’s keeper and make Trinidad and Tobago a safe place again.
And paraphrasing the Hulk, she said, “Trials and testing does come before blessings and you have to be patient for eight long years.
“Our blessings will come on Monday. The time has come to let your Hulk out.”
