Cabinet considers Labour Day and Carnival celebrations this year



Cabinet has favorably considered a request for celebration of Labour Day 2022.

Monday, 2 May 2022, is marked on the calendar as Labour Day.


Covid has prohibited the usual celebration of workers’ day in 2020 and 2021. Cabinet is giving favorable consideration to altering the means of celebration, in consultation with all of the stakeholders.


A decision will soon be announced.


Cabinet also heard from the Minister of Cultural Industries who reported that a limited form of Carnival 2022 is being planned.


All stakeholders are being consulted with the object of disallowing those events that could act as super-spreaders that can harm many people simultaneously.

  1. It’s time for the people of Antigua to stand up against our lock down. It’s time we take our freedom back. No more vaccine mandates. We are all going to get COVID-19. We have no choice but to live with it.

    It’s time we all stand together to fight for our freedoms like our brothers and sisters in Canada. Yes the same Canadian folks the government here is allowing in.

    This happened Friday, February 4th, 2022.

    Notice the Canadian citizens are united and standing together to fight for their freedom. Also notice the police are allowing the citizens to protest against all the vaccine mandates. The police are not firing rubber bullets, real bullets, tear gas or water at the protestors. The police are allowing the people to PEACEFULLY protest. No one is destroying any property. Stand up for your rights. Rise up my fellow Antiguans. Enough is enough. It’s time to stand up for our rights.

    Enough of the financial suicide that the government has done to us and our country. End government overreach. It’s time we get proper people in the government who want to make our nation better and truly represent us, not themselves and their personal crusades.

    Go Canada.

    Let’s go Antigua.
