‘We selling hay eleven years now’
-On GAWU – and our ‘Labour Movement’
On Monday of this week, during one of the Georgetown City Council’s usual inconsistent sporadic, “law-and-order exercises”, the “single-parent” pavement vendors – all female to “a man” – let go their normal protest-anthems.
“Is fifteen years now we selling hay”, “I deh pon dis Regent Street spot fuh eleven years now”. “De constables does tek money from we – official an oddawise” ; “we is single parents look how lang we deh pon de road right hay…” And so on. And such like.
