Equality Cayman collects signatures

Equality Cayman gathered support from the community as members of the grassroots organisation collected petition signatures last weekend.

The petition asks the government to give voters the chance to choose between the full right to be free from discrimination by the government or the limited right that is contained in section 16 of the Bill of Rights in the current draft constitution.

The grassroots group says hundreds of new signatures were added to their petition.

‘We were very happy with the enthusiastic response from the public,’ said Carlene Alexander, an Equality Cayman member.

‘We are finding that most people want to be protected from discrimination and they want their children and grandchildren to be protected from discrimination,’ she said, adding that the petition will be presented to the government this week.
