Worker Concerns Do Not End With May Day

The cities, the hills and the homes of countries around the world resonate with the sounds of the working class pleading, reasoning and screaming as they struggle for fairness, understanding and more comfortable working conditions.

There is hardly the country that hasn’t in the past, writhed in the throes of worker upheavals inspired by disgruntlement with their lot; the result of blatant maltreatment by the employer class.

It seems since the dawn of time, those who controlled the means of production and the merchant class exulted in making the lives of those who provided the labour as mean and difficult as possible. The concern always seemed to be how harder the labourer could work with no consideration of how better they could compensate the labourer for the additional work they expected of him.

Challenges To Development

As Caribbean citizens aspire for the development of their individual countries and of their region, many are unaware of the challenges facing our nations as far as social and economic development are concerned.

Are We Really Preserving The Environment? Part 2

Last week’s editorial touched on just a few of the issues negatively affecting the environment in the Caribbean and other small island states but more specifically, Grenada.

One of the problems touched on was the exploitation of sand and gravel resources for construction purposes in some areas, with devastating effect. The removal of sand from beaches and the resulting erosion has plagued this country for years and continues today even if a previous administration had made the decision to import most of the sand used here. Although this is a more expensive option it helps save our environment.

Recently we have heard residents in some parts of St. Andrew’s expressing concern that the only entity authorized to mine sand in Grenada, the Gravel Concrete and Emulsion Production Corporation, continues to mine large amounts of sand from their beach heads. They fear that the sea will move in and wreak havoc on the lands close to shore, such as has happened at Telescope, Pearls and other areas.
