Protestors against the sale of BTC to Cable & Wireless Communications plan to march on Parliament 10,000 strong when the House of Assembly reconvenes to debate the controversial deal.
Despite the approval from industry regulator the Utilities Regulation & Competition Authority’s (URCA) over the sale, union leaders and other privatisation detractors say they will not give up their cause until the deal is done.
The final step in the acquisition process is a debate and vote in Parliament scheduled for March 21.
“We will continue to fight and protest on all fronts until a receipt is generated by the Treasury to say they have received payment (from CWC),” said Bernard Evans, head of one of the unions representing workers at BTC.
“We are asking for every working Bahamian to come out.”
