Fred Smith: Bullard and Davilma are whistleblowers, not perpetrators - Jan 17, 2017 - 1:57:38 PM

The Grand Bahama Human Rights Association (GBHRA) has always supported, and continues to support, the crucial and valiant work of the officers and leadership of the Royal Bahamas Police Force. We have lauded Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade in particular as an exemplary defender of fairness and justice throughout his distinguished career.

It is therefore with profound regret that we express our bafflement and dismay at the Commissioner’s recent comments regarding the stalled investigation into threats against the lives and safety of members of the environmental group Save The Bays (STB).

Save The Bahamas Stunned at Commissioner's No Complaint Filed Comment - Jan 12, 2017 - 6:15:38 PM

S-Joseph_Darville_holding_police_complaint.jpg
Save The Bays representatives said they were “stunned and dismayed” to hear Commissioner of Police say that no complaint had been filed by or on behalf of the organization to request an investigation into threats against members of the outspoken environmental association.

The strong reaction came in response to stories that appeared in both daily papers January 12 quoting Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade saying that no complaint had been filed and adding that “That investigation…is going nowhere.” In March, 2016, Prime Minister Perry Christie requested an investigation, asking the Loyal Opposition to cooperate, into allegations that hit men had been hired to murder members of the group that is supported in part by businessman and internationally recognized conservationist and philanthropist Louis Bacon...

A new species of insect has been discovered at the Leon Levy Native Plant Preserve in Governor’s Harbour, The Bahamas National Trust’s (BNT) first national park on Eleuthera. The insect is a katydid and belongs to the same group as grasshoppers and crickets in the order Orthoptera.

Community activist Ranard Henfield statement on January WeMarch - Jan 3, 2017 - 1:36:26 PM

henfield-photo-rosemary-hanna-S.jpg
WeMarch Bahamas is a movement inspired by the shared desire of a people to be free of petty politics, political mischief and bad governance amongst other things.

The first demonstration of this collective conviction was seen and felt throughout the Commonwealth of The Bahamas on November 25th 2016 when thousands of hardworking Bahamian mothers, fathers, young people and elders walked peacefully by the thousands to the seat of power to demand change and to strike the first blow at the oppressive and regressive systems that have become entrenched as the status quo...

Day of prayer called for Majority Rule on January 10th - Dec 30, 2016 - 3:45:31 AM

Pastor.jpg
The Bahamas Global Impact Prayer and Fasting Network and affiliate organizations have launched a campaign to have January 10 holiday observed as a National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving for the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. We have initiated this campaign as a follow up to our written request to the Government of The Bahamas, namely the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and Cabinet Ministers to commission a committee, at the earliest possible time, with membership to include Heads of churches and the Bahamas Christian Council President to recommend to the Government an appropriate date to institute as an Annual National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving for the Nation.

January 10 is a significant date in Bahamian history when we celebrate Majority Rule. We believe it is fitting therefore that this date should be designated by the Government to also be a day when the people of The Bahamas...
