A highly anticipated Barbados Labour Party (BLP) mass political meeting organized for tonight at Heroes Square was called off earlier today because it contravenes with the laws of Barbados.

The meeting, which was to be staged in Heroes Square in the heart of Bridgetown, is off because it contravenes the Public Order Act, which prohibits public meetings from being held when Parliament is in session, Commissioner of Police, Darwin Dottin explains.

The meeting was scheduled to start at 7 p.m., but the permit, which had been allowed, was withdrawn just after 4 p.m.

The Senate was in session today.

They know full well when the Senate is meeting Public meetings aren't allowed. When I worked in Marhill Street even the rum shops/bars had to shut down by a certain time when Senate was meeting. It is nothing new!
