Tarouba, Trinidad - Residents of Tarouba blockaded roads with burning tires and debris to protest the lack of road maintenance and vowed to do so again if the streets are not repaired soon. Protesters said that the roads where damaged by heavy machinery the government had brought through the village three years ago. Some of the holes had been filled with an oily black mix which liquefied and spread over the town during the hot summer months.
