A Remembrance Rally
A group of people will be meeting in the Royal Square on Saturday to remember victims of alleged child abuse.
A rally's been planned in Jersey's Royal Square to remember the victims of alleged child abuse in the Island.
The event has been organised by a group who met through the social networking website Facebook and is being called a “remembrance rally”.
It’s scheduled to take place in the Royal Square at midday on Saturday, 8 March 2008.
Daffodils in full bloom
Organisers say there'll be a minute's silence in memory of the alleged victims, and that'll be followed by various speakers. None of these have been named to date.
Afterwards there'll also be an opportunity for members of the public to address the rally.
The event spokesman Montford Tadier - who's a member of the Jersey Democratic Alliance, but is helping to organise the event independently - says that'll take the form of an open mic session.
Mr Tadier is also part of an online group that's supporting calls to "Vote Frank Walker out of The States"
He stresses the event is not linked to any political group - and he's encouraging people to bring a daffodil with them as a symbol of hope for the future.
