BLP celebrates 77th anniversary
The Barbados Labour Party today marked its 77th anniversary with a service in Holy Innocents Anglican Church, St Thomas.
Party Leader, Mia Mottley, recalled activities of the Opposition party last year, that she described as giving a ‘voice to the voiceless’, and pledged to continue the work this 78th year.
“It was a call to action,” she said to BLP members and well-wishers, “to allow us to do the good works to let the people sleep easy at night… and to believe that our role is not simply to act in a parliament and speak to the laws of the land.
“It was a call to ask us to work with people who may not be our members, who may not even be our supporters, but who share the common platform on issues that are fundamental to our well-being”.
