BLP stages white march

Scores of supporters, some armed with placards, were gathered in Heroes Square, The City,  to join Leader of the Opposition Barbados Labour Party Mia Mottley in her march for a repeal of the controversial Municipal Solid Waste Tax.

Among BLP parliamentarians in attendance was Kerrie Symmonds who had earlier indicated that he was not backing the repeal call.

However, visibly absent was former Prime Minister Owen Arthur who has said he is staying away as a matter of principle.

The majority of those gathered were dressed in white. However, there are those who have opted to dress in the BLP colour – red. A truck with music is also on hand.

    People complain that bajans are too laid back and take alot of things and its true.Bajans tend to complain but still go ahead and pay because we generally don’t like to cause trouble and strife but there comes a point when you have to really look at things objectively and the tax is really an unfair tax in alot of ways.If you take the politics out of it it is still an unfair tax.The government needed to have an honest conversation with the people of the country and work out a way for it to be done fairly.Alot more people would have joined the walk but out of fear of political association they chose not to.

    I hope this march is just a first step. To all those who think that the march is a waste of time I say to you; if Rosa Parks had continued sitting at the back of the bus like all the others, blacks would still be riding there today. We have got to stand up for what we believe in despite what others think or say. I too took my stance today as I did in the march led by Bobby Clarke.

    No-one can know what can come out of the March, unless you are “The Father”, we must try and stop anticipating what might happen….. Lets just wait and see !!
