Another march this Saturday

For the second time in as many weeks, senior attorney-at-law Robert Bobby Clarke will lead a march through Bridgetown against rising economic problems in the country. He said the Commissioner of Police has given permission for the march to take place this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Clarke said he and other officials intend to highlight the hardships being experienced by Barbadians and the apparent lack of concern by authorities about those challenges.

More than 100 placard-bearing demonstrators took part in the first protest held late last month.

    All this marching, sometimes when you start marching you can’t stop. Let’s hope you don’t march on top of the Government. That may be the only way you can march for a change is when you crush them under your feet….literally. Lol MARCH ON guys, make your point.

    How would you feel that when you open your solid waste tax bill and the figure is $1000.00 dollars which is far more than your land tax bill. This is totally ridiculous. Plus all the other bills people have to pay..along with the fact that you have been laid off from work …I guess they will have to take me to court… We should be all grateful that the opposition is fighting for us.

    Perhaps a petition signed by citizens would serve a better purpose …

    The government needs to explain how the environmental levy funds have been used before putting this stupid tax on people, its just a money grab

    One of the central components of the “people’s” Protest March that is being held this Saturday is that it will be a March against the Municipal Solid Waste Tax. We, the principal organizers of the March, strongly believe that this new tax is misconceived , oppressive and extremely anti-working class, and we will be demanding that it be cancelled.

    We are therefore inviting all Barbadians who oppose the Municipal Solid Waste tax to join us and to participate in our March.

    Marchers will assemble at Independence Square from 9AM this Saturday the 5th of July 2014, and the March will commence at 10AM sharp.

    It has been said the Barbadians are living above their means but it appears to be alright to be “in debt” above our means !!

    I don’t think we should TRY and anticipate what would happen, if we do or don’t March – the fact of the matter is that this is an opportunity to show how many are NOT in support of the tax – no one can tell what can happen.
