CHRI Richard Bourne states that the Caribbean is not doing too badly on human rights issues.

Patterson called for democratic reform of the UN and Cuba's President Fidel Castro launched an attack on the world's economic powers. In Dominica, the police believe that some Chinese nationals are using the island as a backdoor for entry into the US. In Jamaica, Parliament now officially has a second Opposition party - the National Democratic Movement. Scientists from Britain plan to take the Asian wasp to Grenada to fight the dreaded pink mealybug. Entomologist Tony Cross explains how the wasp destroys the mealybug.en_US
