dc.description Anne-marie Green announces a special message from BBC Caribbean Magazine on an upcoming cookery competition. en_US
dc.description.abstract The results of the elections in Grenada fail to install a new government with Nicholas Brathwaite, National Democratic Congress winning seven of the 15 seats. Collaborations are now underway between the NDC and the outgoing Prime Minister, Ben Jones of the National Party to form a new coalition government with a workable majority. Following the Financial News, Cuba celebrates the 112th anniversary of the Baragua Protest in which General Antonio Maceo is hailed as the protagonist of one of the nation’s most glorious events. In the face of current growing hardships in Cuba, President Fidel Castro urges the people to emulate this unyielding protagonist and stand firm in their struggles. The final segment highlights the deplorable living conditions of the Haitian cane cutters in the Dominican Republic. en_US
