Barbados Free Press Going Offline For 24 Hours Or Less

Hello Folks

Before 11pm on Wednesday, September 26, 2007, Barbados Free Press will be going offline for an estimated 24 hours – or less. At times the blog will entirely disappear – while at other times we will be online but none of the moderators will be on duty.

Whether we are down for the entire day or a few hours all depends on how quickly we can make some things happen.

The reason for this will be clear upon our return.

My friends…

We are not living in the Barbados of our parents – where no matter what hardships we faced, our elected representatives, police and judicial officials at least knew right from wrong and the importance of the Rule of Law. No, people didn’t always live up to the standards as they should have: but at least they knew enough to know when they were doing wrong.

Fact: American Airlines Flight AA1089 Miami-Barbados 26 September 2007

Welcome To Barbados! 

“The Government of Barbados has refused to supply the forms (immigration and customs) to American Airlines and has also refused to allow us to print the forms”

Senior Flight attendant advising the passengers on a nearly full flight TODAY!

On arrival at GAIA no customs forms were available.

A number of prominent Barbadians were on this flight and can confirm this statement.

Can the Minister of Tourism please urgently advise what is the current position of issuing landing cards and customs declaration forms to passengers on our largest American carrier servicing Barbados?
