Bajan Reporter Has News On Bridgetown Film Festival, Earth Day Beach Clean-up

Ian Bourne has information on the Bridgetown Film Festival, the April 22nd Earth Day Beach Clean-up and the earlier CARE beach clean-up sponsored by the United States Embassy.

Maybe Ian can also tell us why Earth Day is always held on Lenin’s birthday? Always a bit of irony seeing the USA sponsoring an event on a Communist holy day!

Head on over to Bajan Reporter and see if Ian knows why Earth Day is always held on Lenin’s birthday.  ;-)

    Penalites need to be raised on driving on Barbados’ beaches too. As you can see with the decrease in leatherback turtles in the Caribbean Jellyfish populations Especially the Man-O-War type are exploding. Car/truck tires easily crush turtle eggs in the sand. And without turtles you have Jellyfish able to expand their population with no turtles to eat them.

  2. I had no idea Lenin’s B’day coincided – probably some private irony with a blacklisted person from the MacCarthy 50’s, but you better check my Blog again, there are other hot items, especially if you rinse after brushing – truly!

    Hi Ian

    Earth Day actually started on the 100th anniversary of Lenin’s birth. Check it out on Wikipedia – there is quite a story about the whys and maybes!

    We thought we would tease you a bit. All in fun between friends, of course!

    I should imagine it was selected for the same reason They decided to plunk “Jesus’ birthday” right down on top of that Pagan feast day on December 25th.

    Must’ve pixxed-off the Druids no end!

    (Jesus was born sometime in late Sept./early Oct.,but for ‘political’ reasons Dec.25th. was selected)
