Barbadians invited back home in 2020
BARBADIANS in the worldwide diaspora have been invited to come back home for what has been dubbed The Gathering 2020.
It will be the grand coming together of Barbadians “by birth, by marriage or by choice” to whom Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley issued the invitation at the 52nd Independence Day Parade.
The Prime Minister announced to the large gathering at Kensington Oval: “We will start with the people of St Lucy in January 2020 when we have everyone related to St Lucy coming and from there on, parish by parish, month by month, until we end in St Michael on the 29th of November for the month of November. Then from the 30th of November 2020 to the 31st of December we invite the whole nation to celebrate the gathering 2020 upon the people of Barbados.”
She declared: “This is our statement to our own and it is our statement to the people of the world.” (GC)
