Forty THOUSAND WORKERS OUT OF A JOB THIS LABOUR DAY!!!
Nassau, Bahamas — You would not believe it! We could not believe what we saw this morning at the annual Labour Day Parade. Thousands, and we mean THOUSANDS, were seen marching up East Street Hill like a church on the way to ZION dressed in PLP colours.
The event was shocking to say the least. For almost forty-five minutes it took the PLP section of the parade to pass a single spot on the parade route. It was unbelievable.
Perry Christie moved with the crowd like a Rock Star as he made his way onto Bay. By the time members of the PLP leadership [CHRISTIE, DAVIS and ROBERTS] entered in Rawson Square in downtown Nassau, the back section of the PLP was still making its way up-the-hill behind Mortimor’s Candy Kitchen.
One onlooker told BP, “If this is a sign of things to come, there is no doubt Christie will form the next government of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas; for in my 20 years of participating in Labour Day parades, never in the history have I ever seen so many thousands march in solidarity with workers.”
The PLP had joined both parades today with its larger section [THE ONE ON THE EAST STREET ROUTE] marched with the TUC.
One organizer of the event told BP, “Our plan was deliberate. We know workers are being crushed under this WICKED FOREIGN NATIONAL MOVEMENT. We know workers are working harder and are taking home less pay; chiefly, due to the FNM’s sinful rounds of higher taxes. We know families, some six thousands, are in darkness every night under this reckless FAILED FNM regime. We know they cannot buy food; jackmackerel and tuna. However, in the midst of all this, THE PLP CARES, and we stand with our people. And we want them to know we are ready to LEAD on day one!”
Bahamas Press can confirm for the fourth year since being elected to office, Hubert Ingraham as refused to march with workers on Labour Day.
We do not know if his refusal is due to the increasing tensions exerted by his government against Bahamians or to the fact that he has health challenges.
One participant said, “The FNM should hang their heads in shame for what they have done to the Bahamian worker; while Bahamians are marching this Labour Day and are unemployed, Chinese, Europeans and Caribbean nationals have landed into key positions here in the country and are given free will to FIRE BAHAMIANS! THE FNM has FAILED and the UNIONS ARE WUTLESS!”
Bahamas Press has learnt the department of immigration has exceeded his quota of hire foreign nationals at BTC. We are told while separation packages are set to be issued on Bahamians at the telephone giant, scores of work permits are being granted by the FNM for hire at BTC! INCREDIBLE INDEED!
The FNM absence on the TUC East Street parade was not missed, and no sign of the NDP was there either. We did see Branville McCartney and his nine other candidates at Zion East Street Church giving out water. They came to give it out, but as the parade passed, they were left sitting on the side drinking it.
The Green party could be seen standing on the side of the road in SHOCK, and as all the yellow passed them by. In the end the DNA was left blue!
HOLD ON WORKERS, CHANGE IS COMING!
BP BREAKING UPDATE: On the day of a national holiday, which should reflect UNITY FOR WORKERS, someone in this town gutted the lives of two Bahamians. WHEN WILL THE MADNESS END? BP records murders #241st and 242nd here in the capital…
