The late afternoon, 9th September march took a route from near the Fisheries Complex in Newtown, via Pond Road, Cayon Street, West Independence Square, Fort Street and College Street before ending at the Ferry Terminal.
Various Labour parliamentarians spoke during the march, referring to their perceived lack of transparence and good governance in the Team Unity Administration, pointing to their examples of victimization, and what it called incompetence by the prime minister and his Cabinet colleagues.
Dr. Douglas led a chant of “Harris Must Go” up Fort Street after declaring that Labour will stop Team Unity, saying, “There is nothing they can do about it.” Douglas decried the treatment of PEP workers, indicating that the march was in solidarity with the thousands who have been sent home.
He also criticized the healthcare system, referring to incompetent management, as the main source of the problems.
A poster handed out during the march refers to students suffering “at the hands of Timothy Harris and Shawn Richards, making specific reference to the Basseterre High School.
It stated in part, “The TUG has brought hardship on students and parents, especially those of the Basseterre High School. Using tools of deception and intimidations, they have deprived the students of a proper modern education”
The Labour Party leaders were joined by several hundred marchers, some joining at various points along the route.
