But i din really paying he no mind cah i did jus waan mek a lil bread(get paid) and guh back home".
According to Daniels they were then instructed to block the Agricola public road with tires, debris and several old vehicles and to disrupt the flow of traffic to send a signal to the government that "we mean business". Daniels said that as the protest began several other persons whom he had never seen before began attacking and robbing only persons of Indo-Guyanese descent.
