Planned protest by nurses put off

A planned protest by nurses today has been put off.

The representing Trinidad and Tobago Registered Nurses Association was expected to lead its members in a demonstration in the capital this morning.

Several issues were to be highlighted.

But President Idi Stuart says the march has been cancelled due to yesterday’s heated demonstrations in and around Port of Spain.

Mr. Stuart is also calling nurses who work at health centers in communities, which saw protests yesterday, to stay at home.

He says as a result health centers in certain areas will be affected.

According to Mr. Stuart during the incidents yesterday, workers at the George Street Health Centre, had to barricade themselves inside the building while gunshots were being fired outside.

He says police had to rescue his members.

Mr. Stuart apologised to persons who may be seeking assistance at the facilities, but says his members cannot work under such dangerous conditions.

He was speaking with Newscenter 5 this morning.
