Pro-Libya demonstration in Barbados

(Barbados Nation) About 50 people from 13 community-based organizations staged a pro-Libya demonstration yesterday and denounced Britain and the United States for their involvement in the conflict in the North African state.

The march was peaceful and orderly, although at the start some demonstrators objected to police restrictions on their singing and drumming and the number of placards they could carry.

The protest started outside the United States Embassy in Wildey and ended at the British High Commission in Lower Collymore Rock, St Michael.

The protestors said it was fitting that such a demonstration was held yesterday – the birthday of celebrated Caribbean Pan-Africanist Marcus Garvey.
