Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and Leader of the Opposition, Mia Mottley, are expected to present floral and verbal tributes this morning at the Day of National Significance at Golden Square in The City, marking the 76th anniversary of the 1937 disturbances.
Once again, the Clement Payne Movement will be leading the effort to commemorate the event at Golden Square – the site of Clement Payne’s most important public meetings in 1937.
The ceremony will start at 9:30 a.m, and floral tributes will be delivered by representatives of the Barbados Workers Union, the Barbados Labour Party, the People’s Empowerment Party, the Rastafarian Community, the Pan-African Movement of Barbados, the Venezuelan and Cuban Embassies, the Israel Lovell Foundation, the Nation of Islam Study Group, and several other national organizations.
The youth of Barbados will be represented through the participation of the Richard Stoute Teen Talent Ensemble and the young dancers and drummers of Tyrone Trotman’s Act Now Generation.
Members of the public are invited to attend and to participate in the ceremony by bringing flowers or floral arrangements to lay at the foot of the Clement Payne bust or at the foot of the monument to the martyrs of 1937. (MK)
