By next year, the National Day of Significance celebrations will be much bigger.
Prime Minister Mia Mottley made this promise on Thursday when she addressed scores of people at Golden Square in the City.
Lamenting on the relatively small numbers there, Mottley said her administration will form a committee charged with taking the momentous occasion to new heights.
This year, the event recognized the 81st anniversary of the July 26, 1937, riots where there was the bouquet laying ceremony. These disturbances led to changes in the region’s economic and political landscapes.
The event was chaired by Founder of Clement Payne Movement David Comissiong, President of the National Union of Public Workers Akanni McDowall, Assistant General Secretary of the Barbados Workers Union Orlando Gabby Scott, Cuban Ambassador Franciso Fernandez Pena, and Charge d’Affaires at Venezuelan Embassy among others.
