Make it Plain


Nov 24, 2023

In this week's Black World News, Kehinde Andrews discusses a current case in Barbuda being fought about the construction of a new private airport and beach developments by largely US, UK, and Chinese foreigners. It's a fight by local "land defenders" against foreign multinationals carving up the island for tourism, "freedom," and tax reduction purposes. Developers are destroying the island's resources, including food security, culture, and livelihoods This case is part of a larger problem with the Carribean's legacy as slave colonies.
