Following the celebration of the International Day Against Homophobia (IDAHO) recently in Gibraltar, the Chairman of the Equality Rights Group GGR, Felix Alvarez, has expressed his “deep gratitude” to “Gibraltar as a whole – and to all the supporters past and present who have made progress a very present reality.”
Mr Alvarez specifically mentioned the loyal support of Charles Trico, Secretary to the Group. He said: “Not only did Charles have the courage, way before GGR existed, to openly come out publicly and speak freely on LGB issues in our country, Charles to me, personally, has been a veritable pillar of support. Without him, the long years of difficulties would have been that much more difficult to take. I owe an inexpressible debt of gratitude to him.”

The ESG has today voiced concern over the Government's proposed power station plans, which went out to tender earlier this month.

There are a number of variables not yet known that could influence the environmental performance criteria: this include piston engines, combustion gas turbines, or steam turbines via a boiler heated by gas.
