Barbadians are this evening reflecting on the contribution of the Labour movement to the island’s development.
Under the theme – “Labour Marches On! A Tribute to the Icons of the Labour Movement”, the country’s top officials are participating in a heritage labour march.
Historians Ambassador Robert Morris and Morris Greenidge are leading the march, an interactive guided tour where patrons will journey through time, visiting some well-known locations in and around Bridgetown that played a pivotal role in the development of the trade union movement as it fought for the rights of Barbadian workers.
The event began with a wreath-laying ceremony at the statue of Sir Frank Walcott, where Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, Opposition Leader Mia Mottley and others paid tribute.
