[Updated] The first of today’s [Mar 1] marches and demonstrations is underway, with a less than impressive turnout for the first march, while considerably more people showed up for the second event.
What appeared to be one person started off the ‘March on Parliament’ that was scheduled to leave from Union Square at 10:30am. He was joined by one person along his walk, a third person later on and the ‘group’ is now outside the House of Assembly.
There is another demonstration organized by “Concerned Bermudians” which is scheduled to begin at 12 noon today on the grounds of the House of Assembly.
The “Concerned Bermudians” group is calling for 4 things: Term Limits to be reinstated, a three month extension of of the Work Permit Policy Review, a public apology from the Minister of Home Affairs Michael Fahy for his “deception and condescending attitude,” as well as requesting that OBA officials “cease and desist calling Bermudians xenophobic.”
Update: The live coverage has ended, the updates are below starting from the beginning:
