Apr 30 - Chief Minister May Day Message Pays Tribute to Chicago Martyrs

  • Hits: 713

picardoChief Minister Fabian Picardo has today stated that May 1st is an essential part of what being a socialist is all about. Reflecting on the reasons for the importance of the day, Mr. Picardo insisted that May 1st commemorates a demonstration held in Chicago in 1886 in favour of the eight-hour working day. The demonstration was disrupted by police gunfire resulting in the death of many who supported that cause. Those who lost their lives became known as the “Chicago Martyrs”.

The day is now commemorated worldwide as ‘Worker’s Day’, in honour of those who died at the demonstration, as well as those who continually campaign for worker’s rights.

Apr 30 - Youth Group in Tarifa

  • Hits: 628

tarifaA group of youngsters, part of the Dolphin Youth Club, spent this weekend in a country home located in a residential complex close to Pelayo. The house provided a great opportunity for the youngsters to put into practice, amongst other things, the cooking skills they had previously honed at the club, in view of preparing one of the evening meals.

The terrible weather failed to dissuade the group from undertaking any activities and making the most of their time away from the Rock. The outing proved to be a memorable and fun-filled experience for the group in question. To give an example, horse riding along the shoreline with the sea spray from crashing waves playfully striking their faces, almost obscuring an idyllic view of oncoming storm clouds purposefully approaching over the horizon, was undoubtedly an extraordinary sight for all.

Apr 29 - Mid Harbours Committee Express Desire to Work with the Housing Department

  • Hits: 849

mid harbours The Mid Harbour Estate Committee have once again written an open letter to the press following a recent statement released by the Government, defending their position on the state of the Estate. The Committee insists that there is no person or certain individual seeking to spread misinformation and distort reality’.  They claim that they have always expressed their desire to work with the Government and the Housing Department for the benefit of the Estate.

The committee statement continues, ‘because of the perceived lack of interest, initiative, communication and action by Government Departments, the Committee felt that its only option was to resort to the media. If nothing else, our Press Release has served one purpose; to inspire some lively debate! We hope and trust that its PRIME purpose will come to fruition as well!! That is, to illicit POSITIVE responses from a Government Department seemingly in the grip of inertia, in order to rectify the problems inherent in the Estate. It has never been the intention of the Committee to score ‘brownie points’. There are MANY on the estate with grievances but most, if not all are happy and thankful for their homes.’
