Published:Friday | July 5, 2013 | 6:54 PM

Thousands of people took to the streets this afternoon for a labor-led march through the streets of Port of Spain, Trinidad.



The march was organised by the joint Trade Union Movement.



David Abdulah the secretary general of the Oilfield Workers Trade Union says the march is to highlight the poor governance issues in the country, corruption, nepotism, discrimination and the non-implementation of the workers agenda.



Abdulah told the Caribbean Media Corporation that the people are fed up and the demonstration is in keeping with the mood of the country.



The march happened even as the 34th CARICOM meeting is being hosted in the country as well as the one day international cricket game between West Indies and India.
