THE CHAGOS ARCHIPELAGO - A PETITION
Some of you will recall the debates about the Chagos Archipelago in the
Indian Ocean on Coral List when it was made an MPA on 1 April 2010.
There are 55 remote coral islands which were the former home of the
indigenous Chagossians who were deported by the British Government
between 1965 and 1973. On the southernmost island of Diego Garcia there
is an US military base.
SPEAK - Human Rights and Environmental Initiative - has created a
petition which it is asking anyone throughout the world to sign. Please
visit their website at http://www.speakhumanrights.org/en/ and decide if
you would like to support them. It is a good and just cause.
