Barbuda Land Act to be amended

In spite of the clear evidence of the damage done to Barbuda by derelict hotels on long leases, the government that wants to remove the Land Act altogether will now try another approach and 'amend' it, increasing the terms of the leases they are handing out to their friends to 99 years instead of 50. In addition the threshold for 'small' investment will be changed from $5.4m to £40m to facilitate the land give-away by dispensing with the need to have the consultative village meetings on these projects and further removing the democratic right of local people to decide for themselves in an open and honest process, what is done with their land.

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...
