The Barbados High Commission: 54th Anniversary of Independence Virtual Celebration
November 28, 2020: A virtual celebration of fellowship, recognition and achievement to reconnect Bajans with their loved ones ALL over the world!
Black Lives Matter (BLM) is an international human rights movement, originating in the African-American community, that campaigns against violence and systemic racism towards black people.
Statement from the Chairman of Barbados & Friends Association (BAFA) Reading
The Barbados & Friends Association has been aware of Barbados Government’s aspiration for Barbados to become a Republic as the topic has been under public discussion for some time. The island has had long and historic ties with the United Kingdom and its institutions for nearly four hundred years. Like many other Caribbean Islands, Barbados gained its independence from Britain and became an Independent country in 1966.
We have seen significant migration to the motherland culminating in the twinning of Speightstown Barbados with the town of Reading in the UK. We wish the government of Barbados God’s grace and guidance in whatever action they take, knowing they will always act in the interest of the people. We will continue to support Bajans living in the UK and Reading in particular. We see no reason why our excellent relationships with the good people of the UK should change, whatever the outcome of the government of Barbados’s constitutional amendments.
