As one of the main tenets in its platform, Save the Bays has pushed for Freedom of Information legislation since its inception, organizing the very first FOIA rally in Rawson Square in downtown Nassau in June 2014.

“The people must have a voice to speak, they must have an avenue through which to be heard and they must be honored with respect to their opinion,” said Save the Bays Chairman Joseph Darville on Thursday as he opened ‘Voice of the Bays: The Environment Speaks,’ a weekly radio show that airs in both Freeport and Nassau on Love 97.5 FM...

COB University Transition Still Underway Despite Cancellation of Caribbean Development Bank Loan - Jun 24, 2016 - 3:56:32 AM

NASSAU, Bahamas - The College of The Bahamas continues to fulfill operational milestones in its ten-year Master Plan with the near completion of the new university entrance and recent ground breaking for the G.T.R. Campbell Small Island Sustainability Research Complex. As a part of the move to university status, in December 2014 a loan agreement for $16.18 million was signed between the Government of The Bahamas and the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) with The College of The Bahamas (COB) as the Executing Agency to fund specific capacity-building and capital development initiatives.

The institution, however, has made significant strides in the absence of the loan. For instance, part of the CDB loan was earmarked for the hiring of a consultant to draft the University of The Bahamas Bill. In the absence of the CDB funds, the Bill was drafted by a team from The College of The Bahamas...

According to the U.S. National Weather Service, if you live anywhere near the Atlantic Ocean, this isn’t the best year to let your guard down while you soak up the sun.

With a record three named storms already on the books since the start of hurricane season on June 1, the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season is projected to be among the most active ever with as many as 14 named storms and six hurricanes before the season ends November 30. Moreover, experts predict at least two of those hurricanes could be major, reaching Category 3 or stronger on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, suggesting "devastating damage" could occur.

Citizens for Justice on the Bahamas Referendum Outcome - Jun 10, 2016 - 5:16:41 PM

The people of the Bahamas have spoken loudly and clearly on Tuesday June 7, 2016 in rejecting the gender equality constitutional amendments. This was a major victory for the family as many voted to preserve biblical marriage and against same-sex marriages which legal experts believe would have been possible with the passage of Bill 4.



Members of Citizens For Justice (CFJ) are grateful to God for giving us this great victory against tremendous odds. We are thankful for the valiant efforts of many Bahamians who stood firm for righteousness in spite of the insults, victimization and lack of funding. We commend persons from throughout the nation who realized that we are in a spiritual battle and opposed the plans and schemes to bring the Bahamas in line with other nations as it relates to LGBT rights...
