March and Rally: "No Bail Let Capital Punishment Prevail" event set for May 3rd - Apr 23, 2014 - 11:45:58 AM

Rally.jpg
At present, incidences of crime, violent crimes in particular, continue to increase in The Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

We must protest the murders and the violence and embark upon a unified program of action to take back our streets and protect our families.

As such, The No Spin Zone, a popular Facebook group, in conjunction with Khandi Gibson of Families of Murdered Victims (FOAM) and Troy Garvey of Determined for Absolute Change (DFAC) invite all concerned Bahamians to participate in the ‘No Bail Let Capital Punishment Prevail on May 3, 2014

The Bahamas' Out Islands: A Visitor's View - Apr 22, 2014 - 3:10:11 PM

Dear Editor,
