Walking for peace

Social Share

Hundreds turned out this morning to participate in the Walk For Peace in Bridgetown, which was organized by the family of the two men who were shot and killed on August 2.
Friends, community groups and non-governmental organisations, joined the Chaderton family in a peaceful walk which started at Jubilee Gardens at 11 a.m. and ended at Heroes Square around noon.
Babies in strollers, the elderly and even members from the disabled community participated in the walk. While some reflected as they walked, others softly sang the words to the song Let There Be Peace On Earth.
A number of prominent individuals also took the walk, some of who included: Pan Africanist David Comissiong, Roman Catholic priest Monsignor Vincent Blackett, Amor Mottley the mother of former opposition leader Mia Mottley, rincipal of the Garrison secondary school Matthew Farley and AJA among others.
