Published

on



http://democracynow.org – More than 400 people were arrested Monday in a massive sit-in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol to protest the influence of big money and corporate lobbying in politics. The protest, organized under the name Democracy Spring, brought together activists from about 140 organizations who marched from Philadelphia to Washington last week. Similar acts of civil disobedience are scheduled throughout the week in Washington. We speak to Kai Newkirk, campaign director of Democracy Spring and co-founder and an organizer with 99Rise. He was arrested yesterday in the action at the U.S. Capitol.

Paradise lost – Expelled by Britain and fighting to return home | DW Documentary

Published

By



Fifty years ago, the entire population of the Chagos Islands was expelled by British authorities. Now, exiled Chagossians want their homeland back.

After the break-up of the Mauritian archipelago shortly before the independence of Mauritius, Britain leased the largest island to the United States in 1966. The US subsequently built a naval base there. This caused about 1,500 people to be forcibly resettled between 1967 and 1973. The lease agreement has been extended until 2036. But as early as 2019, the International Court of Justice condemned Britain’s actions as a violation of a people’s right to self-determination. Now, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea has ruled that the Chagos Islands be returned to Mauritius. But so far, Britain has refused to give in.

Nevertheless, Chagossians living in exile are fighting to return to their homeland. Sabrina Jean is a dynamic activist leading the fight on behalf of those affected, and striving to keep alive the hope that they may finally be able to return home.
