300 march against drugs
CHILDREN REPRESENTED most of the 300 people who took a stand against drugs as Zone 3A of the Lions Club of Barbados hit the streets of The City yesterday.
Holding signs heralding Drug free the way to Be and Drugs affect the Brain as well as chanting “Say no to drugs” along with the pulsating rhythms provided by the cadet drum corps, the mostly primary school children marched from Pelican Village to Queen’s park, passing along the Princess Alice Highway, Prince Alfred Street, Broad Street, High Street, Roebuck Street, and Crumpton Street along the way.
The sounds of the drums attracted the attention of shoppers, who stopped to get a look at the colourful procession comprising brownies, members of the 4-H club and parents; along with police escorts and Barbados Defence Force chaperones.
Heads popped from windows, cameras flashed and people stopped and stared, curious as to what was going on. (CA)
