dc.description.abstract There was little normal activity in Haiti today as the majority of citizens responded to the general strike called by the Autonomous Union of Haitian Workers. In London, an industrial tribunal was told how a Rastafarian was denied a government driving job because he refused to cut his three feet long locks. Chris Patten, Minister for Overseas Development spoke on the Specially Appointed Review Committee on health care reforms to its dependencies, including Montserrat. Cuba is attempting to establish itself as a tourism capitalist paradise for anyone with hard currency and is undercutting hotel prices in other countries. In cricket, West Indies Captain, Viv Richards signed a two year contract to play with Glamorgan County Cricket Club. en_US
