Green Paper Community Meetings to be held over the next three weeks

Community meetings will take place across the island to discuss the Barbados government's Green Paper on Immigration.
Below are the dates and locations of the proposed meetings. The meeting schedule for last Thursday, January 14th, was postponed because PM Thompson was traveling to Jamaica to discuss the earthquake in Haiti.

The next three meetings will take place on:

Thursday January 28th - Christ Church Parish Church Hall 7.30pm

Thursday February 4th - The Alexandra School Auditorium 7.30pm

Thursday February 11th, The Princess Margaret Secondary School Auditorium 7.30pm

The Green Paper proposes a number of changes to the Immigration laws. At UWI, Cave Hill, last evening, as part of the Research Day there, a panel spoke to some of the issues surrounding the debate. Panelists included Retired Judge, Mr. Leroy Inniss, Prof. Rose Marie Antoine, Faculty of Law, and Mr. Elsworth Young, Former PS in Ministry of Labour and Education. The panel was chaired by Dr. Don Marshall.

Come out to these meetings and make your contribution!
