Barbados’ Opposition Leader – People have the power, not people in power

At least 1,000 Barbadians braved the May summer heat with the Opposition Barbados Labour Party and responded to their call to go walking for justice.

The march required everyone to wear "white" and proceed from Parliament Building to Browne's Beach, just a stone's throw from the Office of The Prime Minister, where the regular Cabinet meeting was in session.

While calling for healing in the nation, BLP leader Mia Mottley not only decried Government’s handling of the country. She zeroed in on recent layoffs in the public sector as well as the proposed restoration of a ten cent pay cut to Parliamentarians, calling on Barbadians to respond with their conscience no matter who is in power…

The crowd featured all aspects of Barbadian’s racial background including Caucasians and Indians as well as many significant members of the business community, they all listened to the consistent theme of Ms Mottley’s speech, stating the power of the people is greater than the people in power.
