Abstract: This bi-monthly tabloid of news clippings provides an overview of the Caribbean Basin Region. Using material not readily available from other sources, the Report focuses primarily on the English-speaking Caribbean, but also covers the French and Dutch Antilles, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Cuba, the Dominican Republic,Central America, and North American/ Venezuela/ Mexican relations with the Caribbean. This information service draws on several regional publications, the metropolitan press, trade union and party newsletters, and other publications with a regional focus.
The Report is produced by volunteer labour and is funded by subscription revenue and small grants from OXFAM-Canada and Development and Peace. The publication is looking to build its subscription base in order to cover production and postage costs. One of the group's long term objectives is to stimulate an exchange of information on the efforts of Caribbean peoples to develop themselves. They therefore welcom publication exchanges with groups concerned with Caribbean issues.
In addition, the group, in cooperation with Guyana support groups in Toronto and Montreal, is involved in the reproduction of material dealing with human rights in Guayana.
