Equality Bahamas: In Response to Richard Lightbourn’s Forced Sterilization Plan - Aug 2, 2016 - 4:44:44 PM

Nassau Bahamas  - On Thursday, July 27, MP for Montague Richard Lightbourn proposed the legislation of violence against women, suggesting that an “unwed mother having her tubes tied” would reduce government spending on education and lower the unemployment rate.

MARIO_CAREY_2011rz_sm.jpg
Nassau, Bahamas - The word SEZ rolls off Mario Carey’s tongue with such conviction you’d think he had discovered a single pill to cure the common cold and create peace in the world.

“SEZ,” he says, “stands for special economic zones and it’s not the common cold a SEZ can cure, but the too common ailment of an economy stuck in neutral. To move it forward takes momentum and special economic zones create that energy, that horsepower.”

Special economic zones (SEZ) were first employed in 1980 to move China from its labour intensive agricultural communist economy to something more closely resembling capitalism. Four zones were established allowing investors to come in...
