“They said that we should pay $2,000 to be put on a cargo car. Aside that they can’t do anything for us. Things are going the wrong way for us here,” Lee Addy said.
“If the Government is listening to us now, then we are appealing to them to come to our aid. Because there are some people that an arrangement has been made for them”.
