Hammie La says ‘no’ to march
WHILE THE SOLID waste tax may be “exactly that,” a march might not be a step in the right direction at this time.
This opinion came from former parliamentarian Hamilton Lashley, during an interview today.
“I believe though that if people have a cause they should defend [it], whether it comes in the form of a march or what. [But] at this point in time I don’t feel that the Opposition Leader should orchestrate [a march],” he said at his Hall’s Road, St Michael home.
“To me it sounds it is what she believes in, because [she said] if she has to stand up alone at Government [Headquarters] she will, but I believe it is a rallying call for all Barbadians to come together in a positive way to really dialogue and work towards the saving of the Barbados economy,” Lashley stated.
The parliamentary representative of 20 years added that Barbadians were slow to march unless “influenced by external forces” and wished Mottley the best with Thursday’s venture. (LW)
