dc.description.abstract Ronnie Brunswick, leader of the Surinamese Jungle Commando, is arrested in French Guiana. He was held at the airport for allegedly using a false passport shortly before boarding a plane to the Netherlands. The Jungle Commando rebels still have the bauxite town of Moengo under siege and it is feared that fighting can break out between the national army and the rebels. Following the Financial News, Guyana’s newest political organization, Guyanese United for Reform and Democracy, held its first public rally in Georgetown. The report concludes with three New York-based human rights organizations publishing a disturbing report on the poor conditions of thirty thousand Haitian migrant workers in the Dominican Republic. en_US
