March 27, 2009 (CUOPM)
St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas has thrown the support of his Government behind next week’s March and Rally against crime.
Prime Minister Douglas gave his unqualified support during a meeting on Friday afternoon with Chairman of the Christian Council, the Rev. Isaiah Phillip and President of the St. Kitts and Nevis Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Mr. Mark Wilkin.
Dr. Douglas was informed first hand of plans by the Christian Council, the Chamber and the St. Kitts Evangelical Association to promote a March and Rally to sensitize the Nation to the urgent need to condemn crime and violence in the society.
The Prime Minister has been invited to deliver a five-minute address at the Rally, which has as its theme: “United: Working Together Against Crime and Violence.” Other addresses will come from representatives of the business community, the churches and the political directorate.
“My Government welcomes the support to our initiatives to deal with the issue of crime and violence,” said Dr. Douglas.
The organisers propose that participants of the march gather at the Patsy Allers Playing Field on Thursday 2nd April at 1:00 P.M.
It will wind its way through Basseterre via Fort Thomas Road and George Street ending at Warner Park where the Rally will be held.
