English-Speaking Caribbean Celebrates Emancipation Day

English-Speaking Caribbean Celebrates Emancipation DayHavana, Aug 1.- English-speaking Caribbean countries today celebrate the Emancipation Day, to matk the end of slavery imposed by Britain colonialism for almost four centuries.

The celebration recalls the signing of the agreement that put an end to slavery in all Britain clonies, in August 1, 1833.

However the date was contradictory because only those under six months were free, while the others continued in to service for many years.

British dominion created a new form of colonialism, in which former slaves were forced to work 40 hours a week and live in subhuman conditions.

Although Trinidad and Tobago, Bermuda, Barbados, Guyana and Jamaica commemorate the anniversary this August 1, Anguilla, Turks and Caicos Islands and British Virgin Islands will do it on Monday.

After 179 of that date, ten countries in the area remain under the Britain dominion, despite their people's express wish to independence. (Radio Cadena Agramonte)
