Persad-Bissessar to lead protest at PM's Office over 'sari' skit

Opposition leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar will be taking her concerns over a recent skit at a PNM Family Day to the doorsteps of the Office of the Prime Minister. 

She is calling on members of the public who have deemed the skit offensive to join with her on Thursday for the planned protest.

In a Facebook post, Persad-Bbissessar labeled the skit portraying the removal of a woman's clothing by men dressed in masks as shameful and an insult to women.

She said the depiction of men as brutish and violent was equally insulting.
