CoP blocks MSJ's 2nd protest march

Im­me­di­ate­ly up­on hear­ing that the po­lice had stopped part two of a mo­tor­cade for re­trenched work­ers, Po­lice Com­mis­sion­er Gary Grif­fith as­sured that full po­lice co­op­er­a­tion will be grant­ed once an ap­pli­ca­tion seek­ing per­mis­sion is made by the Move­ment for So­cial Jus­tice.

In an in­ter­view with Guardian Me­dia, Grif­fith said the Mon­day mo­tor­cade had to be can­celled be­cause prop­er pro­to­cols were not put in place. The mo­tor­cade, or­gan­ised by the MSJ, was sup­posed to start at 7 am at Para­mount head­quar­ters and end in Port-of-Spain.
