Peace walk


Share post:

A GROUP OF ENTERTAINERS are using their voices to condemn violence and put a case for peace.

On Resurrection Sunday, former Junior Monarch Anita AC Clarke led a walk from Deacons Road, St Michael, to Independence Square in The City spreading love and positivity.

Clarke, 25 years old, a member of the House of Soca calypso tent, said this was the latest step in their schools project which targets young people to keep them away from crime and violence.

She recalled that the death of her friend Shaquille Greenidge, who was gunned down in Chapman Street, The City, last October, prompted them to head into the primary and secondary schools to push positive messages.

“We first went into the schools to help children channel their energies in the right direction instead of turning to a life of crime, because in that life there are only two things that are certain – jail or the cemetery. (TG)
