dc.description.abstractIn this report Montserrat's Chief Minister, Reuben Meade, urges cooperation as the evacuation of people living in the capital Plymouth is announced. In Guyana, cyanide contaminated water has leaked into the Essequibo River from the Omai Gold Mines. Norman McLean of the Omai Gold Mines called the leakage a disaster. The Guyanese people on the streets of Georgetown were interviewed to get their reaction to the latest cyanide spill. Meanwhile in St. Vincent the Opposition has again called for the resignation of the Attorney General following the latest revelations concerning his indebtedness to the offshore Owens Bank. The Speaker of Trinidad and Tobago's House of Representatives has filed a writ against her detention during a state of emergency and claims that her constitutional rights were contravened. In cricket, after a well-balanced series, the West Indies and England head into the final test match.en_US
