NEWS GRAPHIC 8Scores of young men from Morvant turned to burning tires this morning in protest of what they call the lack of opportunities for jobs and secure employment in the area.

Speaking with News Power Now, Local Government Councillor for Morvant, Franz Lamkin aka De Lamo, said he visited the area at Four Stories, Hirndelle Street, Morvant where several members of the community burnt tires and blocked the only access road into the area late yesterday evening, in hopes of highlighting their plea to the general public.

When asked if the men were protesting over a lack of contract work, which has not been given to those living in the community, Lamkin said he has no control over who can access contracts in the area, but is hoping Local Government Reform would make an opening for better employment.
