Many of the crowd were wearing daffodils in their lapels as a sign of hope, while being angry and shocked at alleged abuse at Haut de la Garenne.
Stuart Syvret the sacked senator who has finally brought the sad catalogue of crimes against children in Jersey into the open has a blog. Read it.
Today he reviews the Time 4 Change public rally (in which he wasn't involved as an organiser) the activities of Jersey’s loathsome Chief Minister, Senator Frank Walker and the press - especially BBC Jersey.
"I don’t describe the power-apparatus of Jersey as an oligarchy for nothing. It’s the perfect word to describe the rotten confluence and collaboration of vested interests, social-climbing, ignorance and complacency which sees every arm of the state here walking in lock-step – with the enthusiastic and supine support of Jersey’s media."
"Senator Frank Walker has disgraced himself yet further.He has issued a statement to the media in which he rubbishes the rally, accuses it of being political, claims the attendance was very low - and actually insults and denigrates all the good Jersey people who turned out by accusing them of using a tragedy just to promote change.Yes.He really is that stupid."
