‘Protest’ at airport fails to materialise

Three police officers were present at the front gate of L.F. Wade International Airport yesterday in response to reports of a planned protest.

The Royal Gazette was in place at the airport for an hour and in that time no protesters were present. An e-mail circulated this week had advised of three days of protests, calling people to gather at City Hall on Wednesday, the airport yesterday and the House of Assembly today, in opposition to the deal between the airport redevelopment deal.

On Wednesday evening, about 100 people demonstrated outside City Hall as finance minister Bob Richards delivered a presentation on the subject to One Bermuda Alliance members.
