After news of Andrea Bharatt’s death rocked the nation on Thursday, scores gathered in front of Woodford Square last night, at the entrance opposite the Red House, to stage a candlelight vigil/memorial and express their sadness and disgust.
The vigil was led by Phillip Edward Alexander, of the Citizens Union of Trinidad and Tobago.
Bharatt”s body was found over a precipice in the Heights of Aripo on Thursday afternoon, following days of searching.
Alexander said “Another one of our daughters has been killed in a country where lives and women lives are too cheap.”
He said they chose opposite the Red House, as any change in T&T will start and end in the building that houses the Parliament.
