AFTER sustaining widespread criticism for her perceived silence on mounting violent crimes against women, Trinidad and Tobago’s first female President, Paula-Mae Weekes, has broken her silence.

NINETEEN activist groups have invited the nation to stage a “walkout” from workplaces in observation today of International Women’s Day (IWD) and to honour the activism that followed the murders of several young women, including Andrea Bharatt.

WITH each minute that passes, it is becoming less and less likely that missing hiker Qadir Shah will be found alive.

Even some of his friends and family members have apparently accepted that Shah is no longer alive and have instead mobilised searches to locate his body.

HE has suffered the horrific loss of his only daughter to violence but Randolph Bharatt remains optimistic on this International Women’s Day.

Prior to him participating in a vigil in Port of Spain organised by the Candlelight Movement last Friday where he signed a petition in support of legislation for women’s safety, Bharatt was asked his thoughts on the strides women have made: “I think they have started. Something good might happen.”

On two occasions in the past week, freight container trucks passing through an uneven stretch of road in Craignish Village, Princes Town nearly toppled over into oncoming traffic, and could go neither forward nor back.
