Member of parliament Annette Ferguson called on young people to get involved, come on board and take back their communities.
And the problems facing the Sugar industry did not escape the criticism of the speakers at the Rally. Executive member of the APNU James Bond told supporters that sugar workers are treated like second-class citizens.
