1 500 unite in anti-government cause


Share post:

THE SUN WAS hot but the mood was jubilant as around 1 500 people took to the streets of Bridgetown, marching in solidarity against Government policies.

The Barbados Labour Party’s (BLP) March For Justice took place yesterday with men, women and children – some in strollers – clad in white marching from Heroes Square to Browne’s Beach where a rally was held.

The march garnered much interest from those working in The City. Some took up positions on the balconies of their buildings while others peeked at the action from their air-conditioned offices.

The march moved off at midday to the sounds of Buju Banton’s Destiny pumping from a music truck. Some of the other selections included Gypsy’s The Sinking Ship and Bob Marley’s Who The Cap Fit. (BA/CA/AD)
