General Election called - March 21st 2018

We still await the judges decision about whether Barbudans who returned to live on Barbuda now have to go back to Antigua to vote in the snap general election. Are we no longer a recognised consituency? How will they get almost 450 of us to Antigua on the day when the ferry depends on the weather and SVG cancel flights on a whim? Who will assist the people who are older or who have children to look after? Is this a day trip or are we staying the night. Those of us who have returned to live in Barbuda will certainly travel to vote but it's looking like a rather desperate and misguided attempt to effect the election result they need - to remove Barbudans permanently from their communal land.

APUA electricity inspection fails

All homes who requested reconnection to electricity were visited by an APUA inspector last week. He advised home owners that the new system in Barbuda will be to install both 220 and 110 current facilities in every home, eliminating the need for transformers.The problem with this is that every house visited failed the inspection, and will need to be adapted to suit the safer guidelines. Wait Foundation have agreed to provide the necessay materials. As APUA have not re-connected many of the posts in the village in most areas since the Cubans and Venezuelans left, we are not expecting electricity any time soon!

Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long.
Too long, too long in slavery.
So the struggle continue.
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you.
We rastaman will set the world free...
