dc.description.tableofcontents 3. Cuban celebrations commemorating the attack on the Moncada barracks in 1953 have been somewhat dampened by the country’s economic situation, further exacerbated by the US trade embargo imposed on the country over the past 28 years. Hopes of an improvement in the foreign relations between Cuba and the United States have been hampered by the continued presence of Cuban troops in Africa. Growing disaffection in Cuba regarding the effects of the Cuban-Angolan war are explored by BBC correspondent Alan Tomlinson. (04:07-07:05) en_US

dc.description.tableofcontents 5. Dissatisfaction over working conditions in the Free Trade Zone in Kingston Jamaica continues as workers complain over low wages, poor working conditions and a lack of skills training. The local private sector expresses concern that too many demands from the workers could jeopardize the economic prospects for the zone. Honor Ford-Smith, a well-known activist with the Sistren Research organization and a critic of the Free Trade Zone, is interviewed by BBC correspondent Jerry Timmins, who questions the possible impact of her activism on the decisions of investors, who may opt to do business elsewhere given the climate of labour relations in Jamaica. (08:41-11:41) en_US
dc.description.tableofcontents 6. The fourth test match between the West Indies and England at Headingley, concludes with a ten-wicket win for the visitors and strong words of condemnation for the English team from the British press. Pat Whitehorn interviews West Indies team captain Vivian Richards, who discusses his elation at the team’s victory, as well as the reaction of the West Indian immigrant population in England who also feel a sense of pride in the outcome of the match.
