A release from the group said that they recognize that in many cases, young people are both the victims and perpetrators of violence in St Vincent and the Grenadines.

“We ask all young people in St. Vincent and the Grenadines to exercise restraint and to walk away from potentially violent situations. It is important to seek good counsel and to desist from acting irrationally,” the release said.

The group also called on the government to once again consider the Spiritual and Social Redemption Charter put forward by the New Democratic Party, which lays the framework for intervention and positive youth empowerment in our nation.

“We believe that the youth are an asset to the development of St Vincent and the Grenadines and therefore every effort must be made to ensure that they are the focal point of all policies and progammes to ensure their participation in the decision making processes of the country,” the release said.
