A press release from a group of young people calling itself the “Bataw Youth Association” from Bataw District, Sinoe County has denied media reports of a demonstration planned by its members to stop Golden Veroleum Liberia (GVL) from operating in their county.
The founder and Executive Director of Gbowee Peace Foundation Africa (GPFA), Madam Leymah Gbowee, has said that the young people are the custodians of peace in any society, and as such national stakeholders should ensure that those positive attitudes that would help contribute to the maintenance of peace are encouraged among youths.
She said that this can be done by the creation and establishment of appropriate programs, such as peace clubs and youth gatherings where ‘togetherness’ (unity inspite of diversity) and peace can be preached and maintained.
