March against violence

Social Share

MEMBERS OF THE City North District of the Seventh Day Adventist church raised their voices in unison yesterday as they spoke out against the rising crime rate in Barbados.

The scores who made their voices heard came from branches that included Amazing Grace, Black Rock, Jackson, Holders Hill, and Goodland. Their stance comes after the country recorded its 26th homicide for 2017.

The event was more poignant because members had lost one of their own, Pathfinder director Colleen Payne in July after she was robbed and killed at the Royal Bank of Canada’s ATM at University Drive.

Just after 3:30 p.m. the religious groups began their trek from the 3Ws monument at Wanstead Park, made their way down University Hill passing the bank where Payne was killed, then to Black Rock Main Road.

The march ended at their church.

Here members of the Pathfinders are marching past the bank yesterday afternoon. (TG)
