Jamaica: Capturing Pellew

Categories: Caribbean, Jamaica, Development, Digital Activism, Environment, History, Indigenous, Politics, Protest

Concerned about plans by private owners to develop Pellew Island, Snailwriter [1] has a plan: “The Tainos ‘owned’ Jamaica until the men in Columbus’s ships took it…I figure I have as much right to do some capturing as anyone. So I’m gonna invade Pellew Island…I know my invasion will be symbolic rather than real; but it will be my statement that some things belong not to a single person, no matter how monied, but to humankind.”
