March confirmed for Friday
Attorney-at-law and political activist Robert “Bobby” Clarke, has been granted permission by the Royal Barbados Police Force to stage a demonstration on Friday, but there has been a change in the route.
Speaking to Barbados TODAY, Clarke said the demonstration would begin at Independence Square, The City, and travell along the Duncan O’neal Bridge, on to the Wharf Road, Hincks Street, Jubilee Gardens, continue behind the St Mary’s Anglican Church, Mason Hall Street, Baxters Road, Tudor Street, Broad Street and then on to the Charles Duncan O’neal Bridge.
Clarke has already encouraged all retrenched and unemployed Barbadians to join in the march, which begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 1 p.m., to register their disgust at the insensitivity and lack of humanity of the Freundel Stuart administration in the face of the harsh economic conditions.
He suggested that participants come with their own placards spelling out their concerns at the failure of the Government to address their pressing needs.
