Hotel' efforts to privatize the beach

The National Conservation Commission (NCC) is “entangled in a legal fight with The Crane Beach Resort over beach access amidst a public outcry over what is being seen as efforts by the hotel to privatize the beach. A number of protesters converged on the beach last Saturday, declaring ‘dah beach is mine,’ a line from the hit song Jack by veteran calypsonian and Cultural Ambassador Anthony Gabby Carter, who has accused the luxury resort of evicting vendors from the beach last month.”


Backward idea –– privatizing the QEH

Attorney David Comissiong, president of the Clement Payne Movement, rejects Dr Carlos Chase’s idea of privatising Barbados’ Queen Elizabeth Hospital. “It is also a socially dangerous statement, for what Dr Chase is urging is that the Government of Barbados, elected to office by the predominantly black and working-class population of Barbados, should engage in a course of action that would––in one fell swoop––wipe out fundamental social and health care rights that the black masses of Barbados fought for in monumental social battles over the past 150 years.”
