dc.description.abstract Critics of the Clinton administration’s banana policy unloaded two thousand pounds of bananas in front of the US trade representative office. The protest was organised by TransAfrica, the Washington lobby group for Africa and the Caribbean. Next, a series of planned visits to the Windward Islands by British supermarket chains, Waitrose is currently on the way in St Lucia. Next, in Trinidad and Tobago member for the Tobago West constituency has resigned from the National Alliance for Reconstruction. She was unhappy with the candidate selected by the NAR for an upcoming local bye-election. Next, the Trinidadian footballer who was released from a Lebanese prison last week arrives in London tonight on his way back to Trinidad. Next, the amount of drugs found in Cuba increased last year. It is blamed on the increase of visitors arriving in the country. An increase in tourism meant an increase in drug trafficking. Next, anti-fascist groups in Britain are trying to stop an election broadcast by the far right British National Party ahead of the May 1st general elections. The British National Party is known to advocate the repatriation of Asian and black people. Next, two days after Tiger Woods made history in golf a similar historic occasion is being celebrated in baseball in the United States. Today marks fifty years since an African American broke the colour base which kept baseball all white. It is players from the Latin/Caribbean who are really getting ahead in baseball. In the final segment, Oscar winning actor Sir Sidney Poitier presented his credentials today as the Bahamas ambassador to Japan. Nassau is not planning to set up an embassy in Tokyo and Poitier is expected to carry out his duties from the Bahamas. en_US
