PM Browne main speaker at Global Citizens Festival in Central Park New York today


UNITED NATIONS – New York, USA – 24th September 2022…….Prime Minister the Hon. Gaston Browne is one of the main speakers at the annual Global Citizens Festival being held this evening in Central Park, New York on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Prime Minister Browne will expand on the topic of Climate Change and Loss and Damage which he highlighted in his country statement at the UNGA on Friday.

Prime Minister Browne will appear at approximately 6:25 pm local time on the concert stage featuring international artistes including Mariah Carey, Usher Charlie Puth and Metallica; with hundreds of thousands in attendance and witnessing online at

During his presentation at the UNGA on Friday, Prime Minister Browne outlined that although, collectively, SIDS contribute the least to CO2 emissions, they are the greatest victims, not only because of unattended loss and damage to lives and livelihoods, but also because the very existence of countries is fatally endangered.

“The effects of global warming are universal; they reach every country.
But it is vital that we all understand that, in as much as global warming is universal, its damaging effects are not the same; the burden falls mostly on the poor in small developing nations, such as mine,” PM Browne stated.

He said, as Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, he will continue to stand up for the rights of his people, including their right to livelihoods and to life.

“My voice cannot be stilled while danger gathers in the skies above my small and vulnerable country.  I have no choice but to fight unrelentingly for climate justice,” PM Browne concluded.

  1. Gaston the strain of the job showing deeply on your face.

    You look older than Robin with all your creases like a cricket pitch, lol

    Look like you are 75, spare yourself and call the election and retire. You have enough ill gotten gains.

    • @Poverty. If Gaston Browne looks like 75; Harold Lovell looks like a fossilized man.

      UPP must learn to lick their fights. You cannot present a near seventy year old Lovell, as young man with credibility.

      It just shows the desperation of the UPP to hide, spin and lie about the age vulnerability of its leader.

      The irony is, the age vulnerability of Harold id very obvious, reinforced by his dinosauric articulations.

      • @ Fred


        Harold older than him but look much younger……..take my opinion from me and insert your own U USEFUL AND USELESS IDIOT……YOU GUYS ARE SO STUPID AND LACK COMMON SENSE……OH, I FORGET, HE IS YOUR ‘god’

  2. That is an old picture, and he was not the main speaker. Several political leaders spoke including Mia Motley from Barbados. Even Nancy Pelosi speaker of the house spoke.

  3. Another thing that I took away from the concert is this. When Nancy Pelosi spoke, she echoed our Prime Minister Gaston Browne’s call, “The Polluter must Pay. The Polluter will Pay. As she referred to the newly passed spending bill in the USA Congress. The biggest Legislated victory so far for the Joe Biden administration.
    Our PM is a trend setter. He leads and doesn’t follow. Others follow his lead.
