On Sunday the residents used the Arrival Day Parade to press their case, but heavily armed Police were deployed along sections of the East Bank public road to halt any blocking of the road. As word got around that President Donald Ramotar would have visited, the residents quickly mobilized with the hope of having their voices heard, but the President did not attend that celebration.
