THE CARIBBEAN CAMERA
On 25 October 1983, Ronald Reagan sent 8,000 members of the US Armed Forces to invade Grenada, an island with a population of just over 100,000 people, in an operation which he named "American Fury"™. It is an operation he had been planning ever since the bloodless revolution of 1979 had displaced the US-anointed tyrannical Prime Minister, Eric Gairy.
Thirty years later, Dr Bruce Paddington, Lecturer at the University of the West Indies, has marked the anniversary of the massacre at Fort Rupert on 19 October 1983 and the US invasion with a truly extraordinary film
