Todayness of the Grenadian revolution and counter-revolution and the U.S. invasion on its 30th anniversary
Revolution in Grenada caught the world's attention in 1979. The New Jewel Movement, which linked itself to the Black Power movement, had upset Britain's neo-colonialist succession (though Grenada stayed in the British Commonwealth) and appeared to be a beacon for revolutions to follow in the Caribbean. What happened on one tiny island 30 years ago raised questions about what is revolution that transcended the borders of Grenada, the Caribbean, the Third World and beyond.
