Start location changed for second protest against Government
Representatives of several industries protesting against government policies will now assemble at Warwick Workmen’s Club after a change of location.
The group, which includes representatives of the Bermuda Taxi Owners and Operators Association, the Fishermen’s Association of Bermuda, Bermuda Farmers Association and some public school PTAs, had been scheduled to meet at Elbow Beach hotel parking lot but were told they could not use the property which is private.
After assembling tomorrow, they will stage a procession in Hamilton from 10am to 11am, making a loop from Trimingham Hill roundabout to Albuoy’s Point three times.
Shari Lynn-Pringle, secretary for BTOA and one of the main protest organisers, said: “The planning team apologises for any concern caused to Frithholme (Elbow Beach).
“There was no intention to protest on the defunct property but rather to gather to give necessary instructions pertaining to the permit.
“Warwick Workmen’s Club has welcomed our gathering on their field before departing for Hamilton. We’d like to thank everyone for their words of encouragement and support.”
The associations all have differing grievances with the Government but are united in a call for meaningful consultation.
