Celebrate 40 years of the Grenadian Revolution

Given the small size of Grenada – 133 sq. miles – population of 100,000 – and the lopsided and dependent economy that the British Empire had left on decolonisation, improving the economic performance of the country was always going to be an uphill struggle, with the only bonus being that the elimination of the previous government’s corruption gave an immediate boost to the exchequer.

Walthamstow Market Square

Called by Waltham Forest Stand Up to Racism
The law requires that we seek to deport foreign nationals who abuse our hospitality by committing crimes in the UK. This ensures we keep the public safe.”
This is how the Home Office justified the forcible deportation of black nationals to Jamaica last week. Anyone who lost a loved one in the Grenfell Tower will know how hollow are the words ‘keeping the public safe’. Cuts to public services, police, fire and emergency services have made us all less safe.
This racist … Read on ...

The group had information of people meant to be on that flight, who would be put in extreme danger … Read on ...

The Committee for Human Rights in Grenada

Press Release

On October 25th 2018 it will be thirty-five years since the USA and allies invaded the Caribbean island of Grenada, a Commonwealth country with a British Governor General, without the knowledge and against the wishes of the British Government.
Documents recently released under the thirty-year rule show conclusively that the justifications put forward by the United States Government to justify the invasion of this Caribbean island were false and bring into serious question whether the invasion was legal under international law.
The justifications given at the time by the US Government to justify the invasion were: –
