Today is a public holiday in Trinidad and Tobago
Happy Labour Day T&T
Labour Day in Trinidad and Tobago was declared an annual national holiday in 1973. Celebrated on June 19th, it is the anniversary of the day of the Butler Oilfield Riots which took place in 1937

So happens, i'm currently reading 'The Chieftain's Carnival And Other Stories' written by Michael Anthony. One of the short stories - 'Butler on the Road' is about the struggle prior to this holiday, of Fyzabad and the hero, TubalUriah Buzz Butler .

Blog hopping today with
