GREMFO statement on the 40th Anniversary of the Revo’

We have just over 2 months before the 40th anniversary of the making of the Grenada Revolution. It is only fitting that we should have a significant celebration for this anniversary and the Grenada Revolution Memorial Foundation (GREMFO) is seeking to spearhead the celebrations. We have several events scheduled such as the annual March 13th Lecture to take place on 12th March; a big cultural event branded as Champs in Concert, scheduled for March 9th; an exhibition to run for 2 to three months; community work activities, to take place in the period leading up to and immediately after March 13th; an academic conference to take place from May 27 to May 29th; and other activities. As part of the activities work is ongoing on a film/documentary on the revolution which hopefully will be launched in the period.

To execute all these activities money is required. We have budgeted that for the cultural event and the March 13th Lecture we require the sum of $30,000.00. We are hoping that contributions in kind for the other activities would greatly reduce the need for cash.

In light of the above, I am making a request on behalf of the GREMFO for financial contributions of any size that persons are in a position to make.
