BPM challenge the government in Court

BPM have filed a class action in the court to challenge the unconstitutional Paradise Found Act (which was passed in one day to give immediate access to the lands of Barbuda to Robert De Niro and billionaire James Packer for their 'Paradise Found' project) The action contests that the government has compulsorily acquired and taken possession of the land to facilitate this and other projects. They will be seeking 'compensation to the people of Barbuda for the property, vindicatory damages and discretionary interest'. This is financed by fund raising locally and supported by donations of time, expertise and commitment mostly from local people. If you would like to assist in any way - get in touch.

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...
