Rally to present options to crime for Cayman youth

| 06/10/2011

(CNS): A group of young people are organizing a non-political youth rally for this Saturday with the hope of offering young people in the eastern districts options to crime. As the East End community reels from the fatal shooting of 21 year old Asher McGaw last month, the fifth young victim of a spate of gang related killings which began in West Bay, members of the district community aim to bring young people together in a relaxed environment to meet representatives from a number of local clubs and programmes.

Local artists, performers, positive role models and caring citizens will be on hand to organizers hope positively touch the life of young Caymanians by introducing them to the service groups and clubs and the opportunities that exist for positive peer interaction.

“Given the recent increase in crime in the Cayman Islands, particularly the sharp escalation of murders involving relatively young persons, it is hoped that this event will help to create a fun, relaxed atmosphere where the young people can be themselves, but also have the opportunity to interact and learn from other successful Caymanians,” the organizers said. 

Scheduled for from 11am until 7pm the event is open to the public, especially the young people and will be free of charge. There will be bouncing castles and water slides on site for the younger children, music, entertainment and food which will also be free of cost to everyone who attends.
