I’ve been reading a little about Grenada thought after finishing Audre Lorde’s “Sister Outsider.” The book came out in 1984 a year after the invasion. I think her mom is from Grenada. And the last piece of the book said that things were going better before the invasion. She also suggests that the Prime Minister may have been assassinated with US or CIA help. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time.
It’s now 35 years after the invasion and you have to wonder why we were there. And also why we didn’t give aid.
Seems like more colonizing by.the United States. The long history of US and CIA involvement to remove democratically elected leftists for right wing autocrats is absolutely awful.
Here is an interesting Truth Out piece about Grenada. http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/19551-us-invasion-of-grenada-a-30-year-retrospective
We need to help people, not bomb and occupy their country.
