Marchers call for justice
Justice for Demarco!
That was one of the chants that echoed throughout Bridgetown today as hundreds of people marched in support of Demarco Gibbs who was reportedly beaten by four playmates.
Demarco was hospitalised on June 14 after reportedly being struck in the head with pieces of wood.
The ten-year-old is in the intensive care unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
The march began at Jubilee Gardens, and was scheduled to end at Independence Square.
Armed with placards, the protesters also chanted: “My child is not no punching bag” and “keep wanna hands to wanna selves”.
Police are investigating. (TG)
