Bishop, who was killed during a palace coup orchestrated by his deputy, Bernard Coard on October 19, 1983.

Head of the 50th Independence Anniversary Committee, Dr Wendy Crawford, told a news conference that the activity will form part of the island’s 50th anniversary of political independence that will be launched on October 19 this year.
