A small group of people gathered around a fire on the Cabinet grounds today as part of a prayer circle.

Enda Matthie, one of the organisers of the event, said that the goal was to encourage “healing and reconciliation” in Bermuda.

She added that they intended to remain at the site until midnight but that plans could change.

Ms Matthie said that many people in Bermuda were unhappy about the island’s Covid-19 mandates and noted that other countries had begun to relax their rules.

She added that there was a division in the community and the group wanted to do something to bring about greater camaraderie.

Ms Matthie told Bernews: “We don’t understand why emergency powers are still in place, and so we are doing things to shift the energy and the atmosphere.”
