Barbados is Not an Independent Country

“No recognition of the thief, genocide and character assassination of the Tianos, the Kalinagos and other indigenous peoples” – Photo Credit: Wikipedia

As we approach the season before the silly season we can expect the regular public diatribes from officialdom as they seek to immortalize a constructed past and present an unmeasured guidance for their fairy tale visions of the future. The hard truth has been, is and will be that Barbados since 1627 has never been an independent country and may, never will be. We now know that the most influential factor in Barbados’ independence was the CIA pressure on Britain to relinquish its colonies worldwide, as evidenced by recent Freedom of Information Act disclosures. Right away we have to reassess claims about the ‘fathership’ of this so-called independence project. We also have to ask ourselves some other searching questions.

What kind of an independent country can be properly built on the bones of the indigenous peoples of this region in circumstances where, within the body politic, there is no recognition of the thief, genocide and character assassination of the Tianos, the Kalinagos and other indigenous peoples who lived on this here land for millennium before White people even knew the world was not flat. They descendant are still amongst us.

What kind of an independent country will allow 180 years to past after the most egregious crimes to be committed against African peoples, and indeed all of humanity, and for those crimes to be taken as a normal way of doing business, as though they never occurred. A business which initially ‘globalized’ the functions of corporations.

What kind of an independent country would want to establish a so-called ‘pantheon of national heroes/heroines’ drawn from 200 years but ignores 15000 years of continuous indigenous civilizations in Barbados and the Western Hemisphere. A ‘pantheon’ almost entirely made up of political figures, dominated by leading lights of the BLP/DLP and those who, with the exception of The Great Bussa, never even fired a bullet in anger at our colonial oppressors. This is what traitors are made of. These so-called national heroes of an independent Barbados as shopped by Hilary Beckles are no more than lovers of our oppressors. When will the real independent people like Crawford, a man who was way ahead of his peers, or T.T Lewis a White man who, for his time, was more progressive than all the Black politicians, come in from the wilderness imposed upon them.

What kind of independent countries do we have in the Caribbean when not one Island can issue a Sovereign Guarantee (SG) to secure none IMF/World Bank funding and must dutifully follow the dictates of the White colonial economic establishment that rules the world, still.

What kind of independent country could we be when George Belle and a cabal at the UWI could attempt to influence a national election by producing a poll at odds with the most advanced scientific methods available? This modern day, sophisticated, coup attempt was hatched under the very eyes of Hilary Beckles. The same Beckles who now continues to misguide us, and nobody goes to jail or as Bobby Clarke, famously use to say ‘nobody’s head was sent looking for their shoulders’.

What kind of independent university system do we have anyway that in more than 50 years it is yet to produce ONE single discovery in science or technology that has had a transformative impact on a country, an industry or even an individual business? Is it possible that our institutions of higher learning are incapable of breaking out of this type of mental enslavement, cultural domination?

What kind of independent country could this be when other people elsewhere are putting the finishing touches on the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement and the elites in Barbados and the Caribbean are clueless about the transformational impact it will have. Under TPP and its corporate courts, they will be coming to Barbados seeking ‘rent’ for all types of copy write and other alleged infringement of their property rights. Any Law of Barbados inconsistent with the wishes of this court will have to be rescinded or the country will face unprecedented sanctions. This represent a stupendous global power grab. All this is happening when Caribbean elites are more interested in who ‘foopping’ whom than strategic issues of sovereign and real independence.

What kind of an independent country do we have when an election could end in a virtual dead heat and there is no space for a national unity, national salvation or national reconstruction government. An ‘independence’ where a party with the smallest of margins could presume to rule under an anachronistic system and a maximum leader whose head is firmly located within a bygone Greco-Roman era. Or a political opposition where the only thing of importance to the leader is charting the shortest distance to Llaro Court.

What kind of an independent country would allow economic disparities to continue to mount in a mindless lurch toward perdition? An independence that can only be determined by outsiders. An independence that says we can never be self-sufficient in food production. An independence that says we must import poisonous foods and other untested technologies from ‘over and away’. An independence that says all the land has to be concentrated into fewer and fewer hands, especially if those hands are White and or foreign.

What kind of independent people will buy hotel properties, knock them down, built them back and then lease them to foreign interests for decades to come in a hope of boasting revenues in a dying industry? After more than 60 years of slavishly supporting a tourism industry, like the sugar industry before it, and yet we have a class of corporate elites who are as dependent on the taxpayers as the whole country is dependent on the new colonial master. We are in real trouble!

What kind of independence is this when our people from birth to death are engaged in a useless competition, either to see who will be born in a private hospital, who is going to Harrison’s College, who receives a Barbados scholarship or who will become Governor General? After nearly 50 years of independence, and before, these academic elites are largely useless in our pursuit for a better life and world. Something has to be wrong! After nearly fifty years of independence we are still engaged in these self-defeating distractions. We still feel the need to draw up under Elizabeth’s petticoat. This national need is buttressed by a landscape that represents White domination and our continued mental enslavement. This is further reinforced by a White elite which would stalwartly prevent any Prime Minister, in a supposedly independent democracy, from even saying the word REPUBLIC, publicly. That such a small White minority still has effective political and economic power demonstrates present realities. What kind of independence is this when Black elites are worse than the White elites, by any measure?

The emotionalism that will characterize this so-called Independence Day is unlikely to leave space for any serious appraisal about, who we are, where we have come from or where we are going, as a people. While the leaders of the political tribes will have occasion to gloat about pass glory and project fanciful dreams still ahead the real politique will be far different. Unfortunately, these pipe dreams or blatant lies will all be calibrated to engender a certain amount of the accustomed euphoria. We are afraid that as a country, as a region, as a world, we have entered a clearly predicted phased that nobody in Barbados or the Caribbean has properly prepared for. In these circumstances, 1960’s notions of independence are at best quaint.

    You live in autopian world in your head. What you espouse or hope for is impossible. go back, way back in historyand realize that there is no such thing as independence. We all humans either depend on ourselves, or on nature. The native people in America were there even before the Tainos.There suffering was greater than that of the slaves brought over from Africa. Read your history, not as written by the white man but from the indians’ perspective. Don’t dwell in the past. Look forward to the furute. However you try you cannot live past a certain age. Enjoy what life you’ve lived. Help someone every day and stop bemoaning history, which has already taken place and cannot be changed. More later.

    These are the only victims of European invasion, exploitation and even genocide that have a genuinely straightforward case for immediate Reparations.

    People of West African descent should wait behind them in the queue.
    The problem, though, is that the European countries liable to pay reparations are themselves financially broke starting with Spain, Portugal, France and poor Britain.

    You see PACHA, the awakening has begun! What the JESUITS fear most is the avalanche fomented by citizen protest leading to all out anarchy which is the only catalyst for real change. The jackasses who continue to neigh & bray – bucking as they refuse to get with the program of fundamental root & branch change.

    “Whether you agree with the positions held by the author there’s merit in asking what is the identify of the Barbadian, do we know what we want for the country. Are we just meandering along with the flow.”

    BARBADOS is a social, historical experiment based on colonial conquest and the subjugation, extermination and genocide of (all) indigenous people to be replaced by an “ENSLAVED” cast of tribal actors who spoke different languages, had different customs and did not have to propensity to come together in the short term (AND NOW PROVEN, even in the long-term) – a condition that is still analogous to BLACKS because within our DNA are the LAMININS of our (DAMN NASTY ANCESTORS).

    Barbados is a land of neocolonial slaves running around on the modern (PLANTATION) landscape they call home with no thought of their own subliminal incarceration, enslavement and suppression at the hands of ruling elites. Trapped by the allure of postmodern gadgets – yet imprisoned within a sea-locked plantation world where they still have to wait for the “LARGESSE” of those who hold financial sway and political and religious authority over them.

    As you ask the question – “do we know what we want for the country?” Let me ask you something David: “did we know during the “RIOTS” of the 1930’s?” What about the slave uprisings at Mount Wilton Plantation during the 1816 upheaval? Do you think anyone of the almost 300,000 persons on the island today can seriously answer that question?

    The answers still lies with those who dangle and juggle the puppet strings!

    As a developing nation, we are currently “STUCK” between a 166 sq.mile rock and the deep, blue Caribbean Sea when it comes to any form of real autonomy!

    Our leaders are a bunch of plantation “HOUSE NIGGAS”; stooge pigeons whose job it is to fleece the masses of every shred of independent psychological or moral form of self-determination.

    We have been “STUCK” with no choice between (2) political parties that are really 2 sides of the same forged historical coin.

    After 100’s of years of our fore-parents being led around by the collar to quote “PLANTATION DEEDS” – we lay claim to a form of individuality which lauds the virtues of “FREE-DUMB” (LOL) when in actually, we are still wage slaves, consumer slaves, gadget (toy) slaves, political/religious slaves and proud of the fact that we are DEAF, DUMB & BLIND and frankly, clueless – and don’t even know it!

    We can debate all day long but nothing will seriously change until “TRUE” liberation comes!

    Maybe the historians on BU can give us a time lapse discourse of the last 106 years starting with WW1 and do a comparative analysis of the 415 years prior to 1907 elucidating the cascading, dramatic domino effects the world have experienced post the Great War.

  • It is clear that the notion of independence (the word and its uses in various contexts) has various meanings to various people in Barbados.

    This notion of independence has certain ideological, psychological, emotional, political, and social significances for various people in this country.

    However, the independence that most people celebrate commemorate around this time (NOVEMBER), and that is really referred to when looking at a particular phase of the historical development of this country is the achievement of the stage status of constitutional political independence.

    It is this that has to be properly contextualized and historicized in any discussions on the notions of independence, and as much as possible away from any notions of spiritual philosophical material independence

    Clearly this notion of political constitutional independence speaks to another stage of historical development in the affairs of a country where a people, and/ or a group of local political managers purporting symbolically actually to do things/not do things in the people’s name have managed to secure a sufficiently substantial degree of non-dependence on the outgoing colonial power to make domestic governmental/state decisions, policies, laws for the government management of the country as a whole, such that they alone instead are the ones who have responsibility for those decisions, policies, policies, and laws – including making newer ones and inheriting ones that are being left by the outgoing colonial power – for the government and management of this country as a whole.

    The last major decision to further develop this ever evolving process of political constitutional sovereignty away from the former colonial power, was taken when the then BLP government took the very important step of stopping the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council from having and exercising political judicial sovereignty over our national affairs, and instead inserted – in its place – the Caribbean Court of Justice as the final appellate court for the trying of criminal and civil matters coming out of this country. (However, though, the PDC is for a nationally elected group of competent experienced judicial officers in Barbados having and exercising this form of judicial sovereignty in the name of the people of Barbados)

    Where this independence is concerned, we have to seriously unflinchingly defend and, as a matter of fact, fervently promote this type of history and its very positive constituent human and other embodiments and elements.

    For, they would have been many people in and outside Barbados (Barbadians and others – Bussoe, Clement Payne, the martyrs of the 1937 uprisings, Errol Barrow) who would have fought ( spiritually, intellectually, psychologically, politically, physically) against imperial colonial rule, domination, oppression, exploitation, in order to help lead us to where we – the people – are right now.

    Indeed, they are still many Barbadians and others – here and elsewhere – (David Comissiong, etc,) who continue to fight ( spiritually, intellectually, psychologically, physically) against imperial neo-colonial rule, domination, oppression and exploitation, at what ever levels, in order to help chart a destiny for the people of this country.

    And we will fight any one – including you – Pachamama – who dares to suggest that Barbados is NOT an independent sovereign country in the sense of meaning we adumbrated above and in the spirit of the historical achievements of greater national dignity and freedom from colonial degradation and oppression years gone by.

    So, how dare you – Pachamama – to suggest – in a derisive manner – that there must be reassessment of the claims of “fathership” of this independence project??

Especially, in the black community! And science haven’t been able to tell us as of yet, why our rate for contacting these two cancers doubles. When compared to our white counterpart. My guess is, there is obviously a genetic component associated with these two cancers. When it come to the people of African descent! Research has ruled out the high fat diet that was previously thought to have been the etiological factor, and pointed to a hormonal caused.

  • Singing the Nation Anthem and repeating the National Pledge like parrots once a year, make us patriotic for a few days around November 30, but other that that we have no claim to being really independent, although ,and lets face, there are very few countries that are able to claim complete independence.
    “Strict Guardians of our Heritage , Firm Craftsmen of our fate.”
    What a joke. Recently we heard Sue Springer and her crowd threatening to close down many a hotel in Barbados. The majority ,if not all, of those siding with her, are as Gabriel would put it ,’of a different accent.”
    Just about every government institution, boards included ,are headed by people “of a different accent”, and is even more pronounced in the private sector.Where are our Guardians and Craftsmen?
    The Knight of Cave Hill, is on the home stretch,in spite of a few set backs, in providing a degree in every home, yet still almost daily we see jobs being advertised, in some cases for run of the mill jobs , and shortly afterwards, work permits are being sought from the Immigration Department as ‘no suitable applicant cannot be found”. It has got so bad that some expatriates are now advertising for maids,with the clause,”Bajans need not apply”
    Bajans have ploughed ,and are still ploughing ,billions of dollars into LIME over the years, only to see their compatriots being made redundant, and this money is now being used to keep people in northern Europe employed. And to add insult to injury, they too could not find a local to manage the company, and brought in an Irishman. Digicel, although not , as fortunate as LIME, still very well off , thanks to its Bajan customers, is following suit, and filling some of its top positions with expatriates.
    Everyday Bajans of all walks of life, even in the commercial sector, are crying out high electricity bills , but the ones who are really laughing are the shareholders in Canada who are reaping dividends, thanks to the Bajan consumers.
    And the list goes on and on.
    How can we call ourselves independent when we allow every Hans, Bjorn, and Mitzi to come in here and step all over us, a worse situation than in those colonial days, 47 plus years ago. The we only had the British to contend with.
    We may not have any claim to being really Independent country , but for sure we have all right to call ourselves a Republic, a Chiquita one.

  • Anon- you historians and social scientists confuse me day after day about the historical make-up of Barbados as much as those scientists who now tell me salt is good. if what you say is factual to whom would these words in the national anthem apply? in plenty and in time of need when this fair land was young- our brave forefather sowed the seed from which our pride is sprung- the tianos, Amerindians, arawaks, caribs. Portuguese, sir William courteen and his 80 white slaves brought here from the jails of our mother country. what was is was is.

  • For, they would have been many people in and outside Barbados (Barbadians and others – Bussoe, Clement Payne, the martyrs of the 1937 uprisings, Errol Barrow) who would have fought ( spiritually, intellectually, psychologically, politically, physically) against imperial colonial rule, domination, oppression, exploitation, in order to help lead us to where we – the people – are right now.

    I stand corrected but in my view the persons of whom you speak were not colonised. when they were brought forcibly or otherwise a colony was already established. If we want to be true to history we have to find some other way to describe the struggles our ancestors from Africa had to endure when they were first brought here. according to history the only recorded fight against the colonial power in Britain was the revolt by the white settlers here against aspects of British rule intended to affect their profits culminating in the signing of some treaty at Oistins which when it is suitable to us of immigrant extraction forget the dehumanising nature of our existence on this rock and hold up as our own. Right now the only people benefitting from the sowing of the seed is cow , and busy and jada and parris and brewer and Bernie and a few mendicant politicians waiting to feed off the remnants of the seed.

    The true scale of Britain’s involvement in the slave trade has been laid bare in documents revealing how the country’s wealthiest families received the modern equivalent of billions of pounds in compensation after slavery was abolished.

    The previously unseen records show exactly who received what in payouts from the Government when slave ownership was abolished by Britain – much to the potential embarrassment of their descendants. Dr Nick Draper from University College London, who has studied the compensation papers, says as many as one-fifth of wealthy Victorian Britons derived all or part of their fortunes from the slave economy.

    As a result, there are now wealthy families all around the UK still indirectly enjoying the proceeds of slavery where it has been passed on to them. Dr Draper said: “There was a feeding frenzy around the compensation.” A John Austin, for instance, owned 415 slaves, and got compensation of £20,511, a sum worth nearly £17m today. And there were many who received far more.

    Academics from UCL, including Dr Draper, spent three years drawing together 46,000 records of compensation given to British slave-owners into an internet database to be launched for public use on Wednesday. But he emphasised that the claims set to be unveiled were not just from rich families but included many “very ordinary men and women” and covered the entire spectrum of society.

    Dr Draper added that the database’s findings may have implications for the “reparations debate”. Barbados is currently leading the way in calling for reparations from former colonial powers for the injustices suffered by slaves and their families.

    Among those revealed to have benefited from slavery are ancestors of the Prime Minister, David Cameron, former minister Douglas Hogg, authors Graham Greene and George Orwell, poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and the new chairman of the Arts Council, Peter Bazalgette. Other prominent names which feature in the records include scions of one of the nation’s oldest banking families, the Barings, and the second Earl of Harewood, Henry Lascelles, an ancestor of the Queen’s cousin. Some families used the money to invest in the railways and other aspects of the industrial revolution; others bought or maintained their country houses, and some used the money for philanthropy. George Orwell’s great-grandfather, Charles Blair, received £4,442, equal to £3m today, for the 218 slaves he owned.

    The British government paid out £20m to compensate some 3,000 families that owned slaves for the loss of their “property” when slave-ownership was abolished in Britain’s colonies in 1833. This figure represented a staggering 40 per cent of the Treasury’s annual spending budget and, in today’s terms, calculated as wage values, equates to around £16.5bn.

    A total of £10m went to slave-owning families in the Caribbean and Africa, while the other half went to absentee owners living in Britain. The biggest single payout went to James Blair (no relation to Orwell), an MP who had homes in Marylebone, central London, and Scotland. He was awarded £83,530, the equivalent of £65m today, for 1,598 slaves he owned on the plantation he had inherited in British Guyana.

    But this amount was dwarfed by the amount paid to John Gladstone, the father of 19th-century prime minister William Gladstone. He received £106,769 (modern equivalent £83m) for the 2,508 slaves he owned across nine plantations. His son, who served as prime minister four times during his 60-year career, was heavily involved in his father’s claim.

    Mr Cameron, too, is revealed to have slave owners in his family background on his father’s side. The compensation records show that General Sir James Duff, an army officer and MP for Banffshire in Scotland during the late 1700s, was Mr Cameron’s first cousin six times removed. Sir James, who was the son of one of Mr Cameron’s great-grand-uncle’s, the second Earl of Fife, was awarded £4,101, equal to more than £3m today, to compensate him for the 202 slaves he forfeited on the Grange Sugar Estate in Jamaica.

    Another illustrious political family that it appears still carries the name of a major slave owner is the Hogg dynasty, which includes the former cabinet minister Douglas Hogg. They are the descendants of Charles McGarel, a merchant who made a fortune from slave ownership. Between 1835 and 1837 he received £129,464, about £101m in today’s terms, for the 2,489 slaves he owned. McGarel later went on to bring his younger brother-in-law Quintin Hogg into his hugely successful sugar firm, which still used indentured labour on plantations in British Guyana established under slavery. And it was Quintin’s descendants that continued to keep the family name in the limelight, with both his son, Douglas McGarel Hogg, and his grandson, Quintin McGarel Hogg, becoming Lord Chancellor.

    Dr Draper said: “Seeing the names of the slave-owners repeated in 20th‑century family naming practices is a very stark reminder about where those families saw their origins being from. In this case I’m thinking about the Hogg family. To have two Lord Chancellors in Britain in the 20th century bearing the name of a slave-owner from British Guiana, who went penniless to British Guyana, came back a very wealthy man and contributed to the formation of this political dynasty, which incorporated his name into their children in recognition – it seems to me to be an illuminating story and a potent example.”

    Mr Hogg refused to comment yesterday, saying he “didn’t know anything about it”. Mr Cameron declined to comment after a request was made to the No 10 press office.

    Another demonstration of the extent to which slavery links stretch into modern Britain is Evelyn Bazalgette, the uncle of one of the giants of Victorian engineering, Sir Joseph Bazalgette and ancestor of Arts Council boss Sir Peter Bazalgette. He was paid £7,352 (£5.7m in today’s money) for 420 slaves from two estates in Jamaica. Sir Peter said yesterday: “It had always been rumoured that his father had some interests in the Caribbean and I suspect Evelyn inherited that. So I heard rumours but this confirms it, and guess it’s the sort of thing wealthy people on the make did in the 1800s. He could have put his money elsewhere but regrettably he put it in the Caribbean.”

    The TV chef Ainsley Harriott, who had slave-owners in his family on his grandfather’s side, said yesterday he was shocked by the amount paid out by the government to the slave-owners. “You would think the government would have given at least some money to the freed slaves who need to find homes and start new lives,” he said. “It seems a bit barbaric. It’s like the rich protecting the rich.”

  • @ PLANTATION DEEDS

    Thank you for the piece from The Independent!

    The real question now is – “How do we get Britain to pay REPARATIONS?”

    Some research has shown that some £7.5+ Trillion made by Britain from slavery was the figure calculated through an investigative documentary, which was the brainchild of theologian and broadcaster, Dr Robert Beckford.

    Dr Beckford breaks down the reparations figure as follows:

    £4 trillion in unpaid wages

    £2.5 trillion for unjust enrichment

    £1 trillion for pain and suffering.

    Dr Robert Beckford consulted an economic historian, a compensation lawyer and an expert on loss of earnings to calculate the true cost of slavery.

    SEE: http://thevincentian.com/the-empire-pays-back-p3650-110.htm

    Again as a nation, we must ask some serious questions to our former colonial masters… However, if our leaders are not just a bunch of “FAT-CATS” sitting on their fat ASSES cow-towering to the elites – then what are they doing to move this quest forward?

    That sort of money would dig Barbados out of a major fiscal hole and put us back on some sound financial footing!

  • Out of the 200 odd countries in the world today, not one of them can boast of a total independence. We are all interdependent in some respect; though we may not care to admit this as a fact.
    And this holds true for the United States of America as well. Which depends heavily on legal as well as illegal labor to fill the vacuum left empty by those Americans who thinks little of those jobs in the agricultural sector?
    Mexicans, for the most part are doing jobs that are viewed by some Americans as degrading, but are nonetheless vital to the underpinning of the American way of life.
    Furthermore, any person who claims that his/ her country can achieve a level absolute independent is what I would term a utopian ideologue. Now, from an idealist point of view, the concept of total independence is quite practical. But from an empiricist standpoint, it is an unrealizable reality given the nature of the human affairs.

    What about the indigenous people of the region? Don’t they too deserve some kind of consideration in this whole ‘Reparations appeal?
    Or do you too see them as inferior sub-humans deserving of the genocide they were subjected to and brought about by widespread European-induced diseases, deliberate physical elimination from gun barrels and razing of their crops to starve them in order to confiscate their lands to plant sugar cane and cotton.
