Email The invasion of Grenada in late 1983 can be seen as a small part of the rivalry between the U.S. and Cuba during the Reagan years. A bloody coup in Grenada, along with a perceived threat to American students on the island provided the U.S. with an excellent excuse to eliminate a Marxist regime allied to Fidel Castro's Cuba.

President Reagan and his administration were concerned that the Marxist government of Prime Minister Maurice Bishop was allowing Cuba to gain undue influence in Grenada, specifically by constructing a military-grade airport with Cuban military engineers.

    The International Gender and Trade Network is made up of seven regional networks (Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, North America, and Pacific) of women involved in research, advocacy and economic literacy around issues of trade and development. The network was established following a Strategic Planning Seminar on Gender and Trade, held in Grenada, December 1999. The Seminar outlined a plan to increase the engagement of the Global Women's Movement in the discourse and negotiations on regional and global trade and investment agreements. The forty-eight participants come from Africa, Asia, Caribbean, Europe, Latin America, North America and the Pacific. The meeting followed in the wake of the collapse of the Third Ministerial Meeting of the World Trade Organization in Seattle. The impact of that meeting and the critical questions of trade and development created a sense of urgency around the agenda. The outcomes of the meeting identified critical research needs and goals, a plan for developing regional networks building toward an international network on gender and trade, and an outline for developing trade literacy networks as tools for popular education and mobilization.

    1790's Regional Hotspots
    When the British captured Trinidad in 1797 there where many battles for islands taking place in the Caribbean region.
    The European wars for territories in the Caribbean reached a high point in the 1790s. The French Revolution of 1789 added a civil war to the equation. Revolt reigned in the islands, in St. Lucia, Grenada, Dominica, among the maroons - former slaves who had taken to the Blue Mountains of Jamaica’s central range -, and most violent of all, in Haiti.
    There was heavy fighting in the Eastern Caribbean. British troops took Martinique in 1794. A month or two later, they landed in Guadeloupe. There, the British came up against Victor Hugues, leader of the French Revolution in the Caribbean. He had sailed from Marseilles, France, the year before.
    His squadron attacked the British in 1795 in Basseterre and forced them out of Guadeloupe by the end of that year.
    Victor Hugues set to work to drive the British out of these islands and to convert people to the cause of the revolution of republican France. Agents were sent to St. Vincent. Troops were sent in after the agents, and before long the English were hard pressed to keep Kingstown, while the French, made up of black and coloured troops, and the Caribs held the rest of the island.

    PO Box 3119, St. James, Barbados, W.I.
    Tel: 1 (246) 422 1835 E-mail: To Navigation Bar The History of Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique Grenada, like many of its island neighbours, owes is origins to violent volcanic activity - great fissures in the earth's crust were created when Caribbean Plate forced the oceanic Atlantic Plate to plunge towards the earth's hot mantle. There were small reminders of such activity in the volcanic disturbances of 1902 and 1920.
    Humans were probably the last living organisms to appear and they arrived as long as 3 thousand years ago or more in the form of several different South American tribes - the Calvignoid, the Galibi, the Suazoids and finally, in around 1400, the warlike Caribs.
    The Cannons at Fort George in the capital of Grenada have borne witness to much of the island's history over the last 250 years The Caribs were an aggressive lot and drove out many of their amerindian predecessors; it was a trait that was to stand them in good stead when the next wave of arrivals appeared - the Europeans.

  • 13. The History Of CARICOM
    THE history OF CARICOM. with the task of promoting the regional development process atthe 10th Conference of Heads of Government in grenada, Barbados presented
    THE HISTORY OF CARICOM T he establishment of the Caribbean Community and Common Market (CARICOM) was the result of a 15-year effort to fulfil the hope of regional integration which was born with the establishment of the British West Indies Federation in 1958. It was a Federal Government drawn from 10 member islands. Although a plan for a Customs Union was drawn up, emphasis was not placed on economic aspects of Federation during the four years of its existence. Economically the Region remained as it had been for centuries and not even Free Trade was introduced between the Member Countries during this period. The West Indies Federation came to an end in 1962 but its end, in many ways must be regarded as the real beginning of what is now the Caribbean Community. T he end of the Federation meant the beginning of more serious efforts on the part of the political leaders in the Caribbean to strengthen the ties between the islands and mainland by providing for the continuance and strengthening of the areas of cooperation that existed during the Federation. To this end in mid-1962 a Common Services Conference was called to take decisions on these services, the major ones among them being the University of the West Indies (UWI), founded in 1948 and the Regional Shipping Services set up during the Federation to control the operation of the two ships donated in 1962 by the government of Canada - the Federal Palm and the Federal Maple.

    The Pan American Sanitary Bureau (PASB) is the executive arm of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO); it simultaneously serves as the Regional Office for the Americas of the World Health Organization.
    In 1949, the Pan American Sanitary Organization and the World Health Organization agreed that the Pan American Sanitary Bureau would serve as the Regional Office of the World Health Organization for the Americas. In 1950, the Pan American Sanitary Organization was recognized as a fully autonomous and specialized inter-American organization. Thus, the Organization became a component of both the United Nations and the inter-American systems. The XV Pan American Sanitary Conference (San Juan, Puerto Rico, 1958) changed the name of the Pan American Sanitary Organization to the Pan American Health Organization. The name of the Pan American Sanitary Bureau remained unchanged.
    The fundamental purposes of the Pan American Health Organization are to promote and coordinate the efforts of the countries of the Region of the Americas to combat disease, lengthen life, and promote the physical and mental health of their people.

    Caribbean Islands
    Caribbean Islands
    Throughout the period of British rule from the early nineteenth century until the move to independence in the 1950s and 1960s, the Commonwealth Caribbean islands relied on British protection. After independence, however, the islands to some extent went their separate ways and were preoccupied by their own national interests and security and defense concerns. In the late 1980s, these islands were still a largely undefended region; only Antigua and Barbuda, the Bahamas, Barbados, Jamaica, and Trinidad and Tobago maintained defense forces, ranging in size from about 100 to 2,100 members (see table 10, Appendix A). Despite their relative unimportance in terms of territorial size, population, and gross domestic product (GDPsee Glossary), the English-speaking Caribbean islands were a factor in the interAmerican system in the 1980s owing in large part to the strength of their voting bloc (a solid one-third of the OAS members). Because of this regional identity, scholars have recognized the Englishspeaking islands as constituting a subsystem of the Latin American system. One specialist on Commonwealth Caribbean affairs has observed that West Indian collective security issues can be understood only within the general dynamics of West Indian politics rather than OAS-based collective security arrangements, such as the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (Rio Treaty). This is attributed to the lack of solidarity sentiments between the West Indies and the inter-American system.
