Environmental Journalism Awards

Jorge Aldana, News Director for The Reef Radio was honored last night with an honorable mention for his radio analysis of climate change causes and consequences, which was broadcast on Reef Radio News in San Pedro.

Also winning awards were Stewart Krohn and Janelle Chanona of Channel 5 (first and second prize respectively), and Shannon Harrison of Plus Television (third place - not pictured). We congratulate our friend and colleague Jorge, and give major thumbs up to all participants who provide great informative pieces on the environment.

Children's March

Children in uniform held up handmade posters.

"Stop the abuse!" "Say no to drugs!" "We have rights!"

Children from Holy Cross Anglican, New Horizon's Academy, San Pedro RC School, Little Angel's Pre School and ABC Pre School chanted these phrases as they took to the streets for the first annual March for our Children this morning.

Having heard too many disturbing stories about children being sexually, physically and mentally abused, organizers for the march decided it was time for the children to take a stand.
