Antigua Beach Privatization Protest


A peaceful protest organized by concerned citizens is scheduled to occur this morning at Dickenson Bay’s Halcyon Beach.

The aim is to oppose beach privatization in Antigua, advocating for universal beach access regardless of social or financial status. Starting at 9 am and lasting until 6 pm, the protest will include activities to promote their cause.

Triggered by a dispute involving Royalton Chic and local businessman Peter Kelsick, who claims displacement from his beach bar, the protest persists despite warnings of potential impact on the hotel’s construction and local employment.

  1. Look please stop trying to create embarrassment for antigua people.
    Think about how the royalton workers who are locally sourced will feel today, having to explain the fracas to guests.

    Antiguans have never been blocked from dickenson bay, ffryes, fort, pigeon point, morris bay, long bay, HMB, green island, jabberwok, rendezvous, galleon bay, darkwood etc etc…NOWHERE actually, around the108 sq miles!

    Not even Jumby bay ( once you pay, you can stay cause its a private island ).

    Barbuda now is a TOTALLY different story, Palmetto point used to be accessible by locals.

  2. Protest what for a man that use to make other beach vendors life a living hell. Just gimme a break. That man Peter Kelsick is a selfish sob and he is getting back all what he has done to beach vendors for all them year. None sorry dey for Peter ah what he does do other people

  3. “Antiguans have never been blocked […] NOWHERE actually”

    except for all the Mill Reef area, Turtle bay beach, Saint James bay, etc. etc.

  4. Y’all are funny. Some think it matters, some will sell their own children for the right price, and others are actually convinced that they can actually do something about it. A whole comedy show.
