WOMEN Against Violence Everywhere (WAVE) on Wednesday hosted a special noontide prayer meeting for peace and justice in the Main Street Avenue in the vicinity of the Cenotaph, Georgetown.

The programme began with prayers from several religious organisations including the Christian, Muslim, Hindu and Baha’i faiths.

In keeping with the reflective nature of the event, the names of all the individuals killed since the beginning of the year 2003 were recited.

WAVE members prayed for all those who had fallen victim to the mounting tide of crime and violence in the society. They also remembered all those who had lost mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, children, relatives and friends due to the senseless killings. The gathering prayed that the racial division and racial profiling affecting the society could be brought to a halt so that safety and security would prevail.

According to the WAVE officials, the exercise will be repeated next week Wednesday.
