March called off
SOCIAL ACTIVIST Robert “Bobby” Clarke today called off an anti-government protest march, saying he was disappointed by the low turnout.
Fewer than a dozen people turned up to participate in the march which was to have gone from Independence Square, Bridgetown, to Government Headquarters on nearby Bay Street.
According to Clarke, the focus of the march was to have been Government’s alleged “mishandling” of the economy. It had been billed as the third in a series aimed at getting relief for Barbadian businesses and households.
Clarke, one of the key figures in the opposition People’s Empowerment Party, vowed to “continue the struggle until this government falls”. (TY)
