The Jamaica Gleaner reported that
:
Today March 4, which is the islands PEACE DAY the
PEACE and Love in Society (PALS) and the Violence Prevention Alliance (VPA) will be spearheading a series of events in observation of today's Peace Day.

Individuals across Jamaica are being urged to join in the activities as they take a stance against all forms of violence and disorder.

Janilee Abrikian, general manager of PALS, said Jamaicans are being encouraged to start the day by attending assembly at a primary or secondary school.

"You don't have to have a child attending that school, but it could just be a school in your community or one that you're interested in supporting," she said.

Something blue

Abrikian said individuals are also encouraged to wear blue and to dip their headlights in recognition of the day.

The big event for Peace Day will be a peace march and rally in the Corporate Area under the theme 'Peace for Prosperity'.

The march is expected to start from three points - the National Stadium, Mandela Park in Half-Way Tree and the Hunts Bay Police Station in Three Miles - and will culminate at the Urban Development Corporation parking lot at the Waterfront in downtown Kingston.

The rally is expected to begin at 6:30 p.m. and will see addresses from Tony Rebel, Prodigal Son and other popular entertainers.

A church service organised by PALS will also be held at the Haven of Hope Open Bible Church at 37A August Town Road. The service will begin at 9:00 a.m. and continue on to the August Town Primary School, which is to be the school for Peace Day.

March planned

Residents in Spanish Town, St Catherine, will also be having a march from Dempshire Pen to the Prison Oval. The march, which begins at 9:00 a.m, will end at 10 a.m. and will see an address from Henley Morgan.

The community of Flankers in Montego Bay is also expected to have an information fair and peace concert today, organised by the Flankers Peace and Justice Centre in collaboration with the Citizen Security and Justice Programme.
