The Dr. Denzil Douglas Led Labour Party staged their annual Labour Day March today through the streets of Basseterre a. Hundreds turned out to show solidarity with Labour Party Leader Dr. Denzil Douglas and members of the Opposition St.Kitts-Nevis Labour Party. A far cry from the usual thousands that the annual procession has been known to draw over the years.
Conspicuos by their absence was the usually large contingent of over 3000 plus former sugar workers. The march according to most was clear evidence of the fast waning support of the Dr. Denzil Douglas Led Labour Party.
The sparseness of the march was in the view of most a clear indication that the people of the country has had enough of the divisive politics of the past and were embracing the message of UNITY.
With Civil Servants no longer feeling pressured to participate in the now largely political march most stayed at home or simply observed from the side as the relatively small procession made it’s way through Basseterre .
Coupled smaller than usual march the labour party also suffered through a Queen Pageant with drew less than 150 persons according to police estimates.
The poor showing at the Opposition Labour Party events suggests that their continued combative, divisive style of politics does not resonate with the masses. It is not appealing to Young people, old people or to the vast majority of citizens of the country. The majority of people in the country are embracing the love, peace , unity and fair share for all message that Team UNITY is preaching.
