  • Description

    MANY GRENADANS, WORRIED ABOUT THE UNREST IN THEIR HOMELAND, ARE FLEEING TO NEARBY CARIBBEAN COUNTRIES INCLUDING TRINIDAD.9
    SYNOPSIS: This Leeward Islands Air Transport BAC 111 jet has just landed here at Piarco International Airport from Pearl's Airport in grenada.

    On board are several persons, Grenadian and otherwise, who have left Grenade on this eve of Independence for one reason or another.

    For several days there has been an exodus from the troubled Isle of Spice.

    But why are so many people leaving, and what is the situation in Grenada today. To find out, I spoke to some of the people who arrived on board the flight.

    These are the views of ??? of the people who arrived in Trinidad on board this morning's LIAT flight from Grenada.

    Most of the others whom we approached refused to speak. Some claimed they were too busy while others said they would not speak because they were afraid of victimisation.

    But, whatever is the situation in Grenada, turmoil or no turmoil, the island is marching on towards independence.

    This is Neil Giuseppi at Piarco International Airport.
