Growing call for anti-Budget protest outside Parliament on Friday

Citizens are being called to protest the measures announced in the 2018 budget presentation by Minister of Finance Colm Imbert.

A video making the rounds on Whatsapp, calls on people to gather in front of the Parliament building on Friday.

The video says citizens will gather to take a stand against the Budget measures, and highlights "extreme taxation, high tuition fees, high food prices and high gas prices".

The advertisement calls for patriotic and concerned citizens to "wake up" and says that "doing nothing is not an option."

Meanwhile, the members of the Gaming Industry are also being called to protest in front of the Parliament on Friday following heavy taxation on the industry.

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar is expected to respond to the budget presentation in the lower house at 10 am on Friday morning.
