Special projects in name of Campuz Trend six
9 p.m. Saturday Oct 2, 2010 – Social projects in the names of the six young women who were killed in Campus Trendz on September 3 are in the pipeline.
David Comissiong, one of the organisers of today’s National Rally for Peace and Healing in Jubilee Gardens, the City, says: “We are not going to allow Barbadians to simply forget.”
“This tragedy must be used as a national wake-up call and out of it must rise concrete initiatives to make Barbados a better place,” he says.
He adds: “The effort was motivated by the Campus Trendz tragedy seeking to bring healing, not only to the victims families, but also other Barbadians who have also experienced grief and anguish”.
The fire claimed the lives Kelly-Ann Welch, Tiffany Harding, Nikkita Belgrave, Pearl Cornelius, Shana Griffith and Keillishaw Olliviere.
Leader of the Opposition Mia Mottley also attended the rally and said: “If we take responsibility for each other and if we can reinforce that it is a kinder and gentler and more loving Barbados we want to build, I guarantee you that we will not see the kinds of outlandish criminal behaviour in the same numbers that we have been seeing”.
