Members of the United Progressive Party, the clergy and scores of residents are currently engaged in a Black March and Candle Light Vigil for the West Africans who lost their lives on March 28th when a boat transporting them illegally to the USVI capsized off the coast of St Kitts and Nevis.

The event is just getting off the ground from the Multipurpose Center.

The Africans, mainly from Cameroon arrived in Antigua and Barbuda between November and February on chartered flights from Lagos

They said their final destination was never Antigua and Barbuda, instead their hope was to enter the United States as was promised to them by those who arranged the chartered flights.



    I wish I had some warm piss for these hypocrites. I’m not sure what they are hoping to accomplish.
    The Africans can’t vote for them. I wish I could figure out their end game.
    What exactly is the purpose of this vigil?

    Shame and contempt on those who seek political milage from the pain and suffering of others.

    Shamefully how ABLP exploit and abuse the Africans. Now blaming UPP. Shameful and disgusting!
