Antiguan Students Join Protest Over Conditions At Cave Hill Campus


Antiguan students studying at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus in Barbados on Tuesday joined their OECS counterparts to protest conditions there.

The students took their concerns over the unavailability of water and electricity outside the campus’ administrative building.

The area around the campus have not had consistent water supply for a number of days and in recent weeks there have been two island wide electricity outages.

The students say they want the necessary back up systems for water and electricity on the campus.

They chanted “we want water…we need a generator.”

Later, an official of the school said to be the Registrar heard the concerns of the students.

  1. They need to come back home to Antigua where they use to no running water. Better to be a dag in ya own yard than dey one other man yard.

    • “No running water”?? Absolutely none? Smh. It might be intermittent in some places on certain days, but THERE IS RUNNING WATER in Dadli.

      Stop being a Chicken Little lol

        • The same people that gave Baldwin Spencer the “new’ engines? Don’t they deserve to have water like the rest of us? C’mon man those engines were “new” right?

          • I am well aware that the engines were old pre-used most likely discards from a cargo ship and all the corruption that occurred between BS, DS and the Chinese, but to make it worse the now PM defended that whole debacle and made the announcement (which I heard) on the radio that he would reveal who in his party got so called paid off to say the engines were old!! Since he became PM the “silent” engines are sitting there in buildings that are cracking up and we, the people are not getting a plausible explanation for that whole US$54million situation! Perhaps you have an above board explanation???
