On Sunday May 31, 2020, Dr. Denzil Douglas and the NextGEN SKN team assembled an impressive fleet of vehicles that snaked through the island of St. Kitts for miles.
Supporters, well-wishers and their families lined the main road jumping, waving, dancing and chanting.
The public showcase of support began at Frigate Bay and ended up at Buckley’s after spending five hours on the road.
The LABOUR train of over 2,000 cars, buses, trucks and mini vans drove through each constituency with candidates accompanied by lively music sharing their vision and plans for their constituency and the Federation.
It was a festive atmosphere filled with excitement and revelry as Labour Party’s supporters displayed their solidarity. Most bystanders were full of joy while others were surprised. One on-looker commented that “Labour is going to take this one”.
A first-time voter told the crowd gathered that she is at home not working after finishing secondary school with seven subjects. “NextGEN! NextGEN!” she shouted. “There is no doubt that there is a wind of change blowing through the land. We red up the place today. The jubilation is real. The enthusiasm is alive. We have them,” she said.
A police officer indicated that the motorcade was relatively peaceful and that “for the most part supporters were calm, respectful and doing their thing.”
All the supporters declared that they have a positive view of Dr. Denzil Douglas and the NextGEN SKN team whom they are confident will bring prosperity, housing, jobs and business to the country.
“This is no small affair. See the size and scope? It is a big deal. Some people felt that with the public health concerns still in the air, supporters would have been afraid to brave the motorcade. Not so,” said Dr. Terrance Drew, SKNLP Candidate for Constituency #8.
If the motorcade itself could be used as a barometer for the voting strength of Party supporters and the desire for change, then the Labour Party train is certainly heading, full steam, towards a victory on Election Day.
