Reparations from Sir Hiliary Beckles & UWI to the children of Five Islands


Dear Sir Hiliary,

As a man of principle seeking Reparations from our Slavers and Plantation owners in Great Britain, I am sure you will understand the demands for reparations from UWI to the children of Five Islands, for their school, and the people of Barbuda for their land, livelihood and future.

When you support Government officials in exploiting their people, especially the children and the under developed, you immediately have unclean hands, and as you know when seeking Justice you must have clean hands.

Exchange is no robbery and as a man dedicated to education, you would know that the foundation is built on the youth, so when our PM suggested disappointing the children of Five Islands being cheated out of their new school, you should have engaged him in the exchange theory.


Instead you joined him in theft of their gift, and now seek also  to deprive the infants of their Primary school.

Where is your sense and conscience to become so pally with a leader who chooses the autocratic and big stick culture of the plantation to demand and seize as he chooses, without consultation or resolution among his people.


This is the past culture of the oppressor, out of which education is supposed to lift our people and replace with good sense, humility and good governance, qualities which both you and our unfortunate leader have yet to learn and generate.

Please do not embarrass yourselves as you seek to monetize Barbuda for the sons and daughters of our slavers and oppressors, by trying to embarrass England into paying forward their reparations for their injustices.


Antigua is no better than the UK in its control of Barbuda for enrichment purposes, there is no difference.

Because you are a Caribbean leader in education much much more is expected of you, as our entire community for years in the future will reap either the fruits or the pains of your influence over our children’s education.

You and UWI are hereby requested to immediately issue a statement on the measures you intend to take to replace both schools which you have seized and plan to seize from the children of Five Islands.


Further so that you recognize your intellectual crime, you will also seek to establish a program to revolutionize education from Day Care upwards instead of the reverse, as you continue to under-educate by a top down method which only produces pig-headed leaders, ignorant of the needs of young learners.

And, for Barbuda, UWI needs to establish a new faculty of learning on the freedom of joint land ownership in a small tightly knit community like Barbuda, and why it is an imperative to be maintained and cherished as uniquely Barbudan!

Your Award is tarnished by unfair practices especially towards the young people of Five Islands Village!

    • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 says so much about the standard you hold yourself to.

  1. Chupzzzzz!!! The writer of this article is one of those bad minded elitist who can afford to send them pikney oversears to university so of course them oppose UWI Five Islands. So much government primary school inn Antigua that have less than 100 students attending and half the facility not even being used why can’t the kids go there? How many locals have benefited from UWI Five Islands who otherwise could get such opportunity. People like this writer just bad minded and nah want see poor people pikney progress!!!!

  2. Is it so bad to ask UWI to give an alternative school to the Five Islands school since the University took the building? OK if there was a replacement building proposed, but not even that. Children see these things, they need to feel pride too, not just the university students. Yes we are proud of the university here, but how it has been advanced is not a good foundation memory.
    Say something to the children of Five Islands please, tell them they are going to get a great replacement school! It’s not too late!

  3. Well said, Makeda.
    Beckles lost his morning and trying to find his afternoon.
    Now is time for him to retire gracefully he joined with a hustler to deprive the youth of the nation of their school so that he could beat his chest and show off that he was able to expand the UWI into a fourth campus. Shamefully, he joined with this grango to rob these children of their school, the same school that the so call Minister of Education at the time is alleged to have said was too good for the children living in that area.
    Beckles ought to be ashamed of himself. Just joining up with this freak of nature is enough to strip him of all the accolades he has received. It looks like he panicked. He needs to hush with this reparations thing. Until he can make his new bromance sidekick give back the children their school he should hush and go in a corner where nobody could see or smell his shame.

  4. Well said Makeda.
    Actions louder than words, always.
    The youth, and yet to be born youth, deserve better.
    Both in physical proximity to decent places of education, and the eradication of people with power mimicking colonialists.
