    Emancipation of Slaves in the British Virgin Islands, Rebroadcasting

    in Culture

    The British Virgin Islands, part of a volcanic archipelago in the Caribbean, is a British overseas territory comprising 4 main islands and many smaller ones. Tortola is home to the low-key capital, Road Town, and rainforested Sage Mountain National Park. On Virgin Gorda is The Baths, a labyrinth of beachside boulders.


    The abolition of slavery occurred on 1 August 1834, and to this day it is celebrated by a three day public holiday on the first Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in August in the British Virgin Islands. The original emancipation proclamation hangs in the High Court. However, the abolition of slavery was not the single event that it is sometimes supposed to have been. Emancipation freed a total of 5,792 slaves in the Territory, but at the time of abolition, there were already a considerable number of free blacks in the Territory, possibly as many as 2,000.


    In January 1808, HMS Cerberus seized the American schooner, the Nancy with a cargo of enslaved Senegalese Africans in the Territory's waters; between August 1814 and February 1815 a further four ships' slave cargoes were seized from the Venus, the Manuella, the Atrevido and the Candelaria and a further 1,318 liberated slaves were deposited on Tortola's shores (of whom just over 1,000 survived).


    In 1819, a Portuguese slave ship, the Donna Paula, was wrecked upon the reef at Anegada. The ship's crew and 235 slaves were saved from the wreckage. Further Spanish ships, enroute to Puerto Rico were reported wrecked on the reef at Anegada in 1817 and 1824, and their cargos settled on Tortola.


    Although many of these former slaves died due to the appalling conditions that they were kept in during the transatlantic crossing, a large number survived, and had children. - Courtesy of wikipedia.org

  • Standing Strong in Love Against the KKK: How 4 Friends Met in Columbia, SC

    in Politics Progressive

    Back in June, I (Bram Sarkowski) was contacted by fellow Anti-Racist friend Rigel about a planned KKK rally at the South Carolina statehouse in Columbia, South Carolina. Being that we had connected in Anti-Racist groups online and had watched the horrors of Charleston & discussed what could happen with a KKK rally, we were both primed to take a stand against this group there.

    Rigel was our fearless leader, having protested with Occupy Cincinnati & other movements, and worked to coordinate a road trip among us Anti-Racist friends. Amy from nearby Rigel was on board and we were able to contact West Columbia, SC local Ami Propagator to join us at the statehouse.

    With plans in place and generous support from friends, we all converged on Columbia on Friday, July 17. We all stayed in the same hotel just blocks from where the Confederate flag had flown for 54 years until recently.

    What we saw on the day of the rally was a mass of people, mostly against the KKK, gathering to listen to Black Power & Black Justice groups on one side of the statehouse. After standing in solidarity with them, it was clear that the KKK had arrived and we all made our way to the other side of the building...to catch a sight of pure ignorance and hatred in person...

    What happened next will be left up to our guests Ami, Rigel and Amy as we all come together just after a month later.

    I look forward to talking with my friends once more. Won't you join us? 

    Let's get the conversation going...

    Behind the Headlines: British Terror in Ireland, Interview with Anne Cadwallader

    in History

    This week on Behind the Headlines, we're interviewing British journalist, author and human rights advocate Anne Cadwallader about UK government collusion with terrorism in Ireland.


    Cadwallader is a former BBC and RTE journalist who has written extensively on the Northern Ireland conflict for media outlets like Ireland on Sunday, the New York Irish Echo, Reuters News Agency, and others. Using her deep understanding of the conflict, she has dedicated herself to helping bereaved families discover more about the circumstances in which their relatives were killed, and has campaigned for an Agreed Truth Recovery Process for all those who lost family members during 'The Troubles’.

    To this end, Anne has worked with the now-suspended Historical Enquiries Team, the Police Ombudsman for Northern Ireland, and the Serious Crime Review Team of the Police Service of Northern Ireland. Perhaps her most important work however has been as a researcher with the Pat Finucane Center (PFC), an Armagh-based human rights advocacy and lobbying organisation. One of the core activities of the PFC is to research and document individual cases of death during the conflict.


    As a result of her work in this regard, Anne wrote the book Lethal Allies: British Collusion in Ireland, published by Mercier Press of Cork in October 2013. This ground-breaking work, which lays bare the fact of British collusion in Ireland, has sold 17,000 copies to date, and has been reprinted seven times. Join us this Sunday August 2nd, from 2-4pm EST / 8-10pm CET / 7-9pm GMT, for an interview you won't hear or see on British mainstream media.
