dc.description.abstract In Antigua, Michael Roberts reports on the anti-tax demonstrations over government's plans to increase taxes. In the Barbados Parliament Chambers the controversial topic of casino gambling was debated. In Trinidad, Opposition Leader Basdeo Panday was arrested for a second time. Charges were laid following sexual offences allegations made by former members of staff at his Opposition United National Congress (UNC) party. In the Dominican Republic, children were found working in the agricultural sector as fumigators using banned pesticides. Dr. Alejandro Segura of the University of Maryland, reports on his findings of children in the Dominican Republic working with pesticides in the agricultural sector. Dominican Secretary of Public Health, Victor Garcia has completely denied that children were contracted for fumigation. However, Caribbean Report was able to track down two children working as fumigators and interviewed them. Chemical Pathologist, Dr. Alastair Hay of Leeds University spoke on whether children should be allowed to work with pesticides. In Cuba, a government reshuffle, one of the biggest in recent years, was clearly aimed at complementing modernization reforms being made to Cuba's state-run economy. Clive Lloyd, former West Indies cricket captain, speaks on the slow recovery of his son Jason Lloyd after he was diagnosed with the Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Clive Lloyd received moral support from his many friends and fans worldwide. en_US
