10.20am: Father Palacious said Majority Rule needs to be more meaningful for the entire country. He said we live in a country where the rich get richer and the poor get children. He said that black people breed too much and that we need to stop using our bodies to have children we can't take care of.
10.15am: Father Palacious said he is dismayed that the referendum vote did not pass because it means that the majority of people in the country still do not have rights under the Constitution and that fight must go on. He also urged the crowd to stop blaming the government for everything and claim responsibility for their actions.
10am: Father James Palacious is addressing the crowd with people still arriving. He said this is not the PLP's event, this is an event for all because it marks equality for all Bahamians, not just a few. He said the mission was accomplished but the struggle still continues.
