Barbados: Caribbean on the move?

Barbadian blogger eemanee quotes the lyrics of two songs in which people from one Caribbean island make fun of people from another, and wonders: “i wonder if i'll live to see free movement of Caribbean people through out the Caribbean? What would/will the Caribbean look like when its people are allowed to move around as they like? Or have Caribbean people been moving already, imagining new communities beyond their country of birth? Are we just waiting for the treaties and laws that would codify and regularise what is already reality?
