:: About the UPD History of the Unit for the Promotion of Democracy (UPD)
The promotion of representative democracy has long been a central goal of the Organization of American States (OAS). Its Charter , adopted in Bogotá Colombia in 1948, declares the promotion and consolidation of representative democracy a s one of its central principles. As years passed, the OAS has become increasingly active in the pursuit of democracy. In 1990, a Unit for the Promotion of Democracy was established to advise and support member states in their efforts to strengthen their democratic institutions and practices.
The preamble to the OAS Charter states that “representative democracy is an indispensable condition for the stability, peace and development of the region.” With this principle, the OAS became the only international organization in which representative democracy is a purpose (Article 2b), a principle (Article 3d), and a condition of membership (Article 9).

Ladies and Gentlemen; We have come together today to celebrate, against this beautiful background, the declaration of the Greater St. Lucia wetlands Park as a World Heritage Site and the Festival of Living Treasures. The declaration of the Greater St. Lucia Wetlands as world Heritage Site no. 914 and the Festival of Living Treasures mark a new beginning - the start of the exploration & conservation of the "intellectual property" of the people of this region and their economic empowerment. We as South Africans have always known that the Greater St. Lucia Wetlands is a very special place. Now this area has been recognised by the world - as a place of outstanding cultural and natural value - and places the Wetlands in the company of the world's great natural and cultural icons such as Australia's Great Barrier Reef and America's Yellow Stone National Park. It also stresses the grave responsibility we have as custodians of this special place. Our duty as South Africans is to protect the heritage of the Greater St. Lucia Wetlands not only for our own people but for all humanity.

Premier of KwaZulu-Natal, Mr. Lionel Mtshali
Traditional Leaders
People of St. Lucia
Ladies and Gentlemen: We meet here today extremely proud as South Africans that the greater St. Lucia Wetlands has been listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site. This means that together with Robben Island and the Sterkfontein Caves, St. Lucia takes its rightful place among the important natural and cultural icons of the world. It also means that St. Lucia has been recognised as a place of global importance and that South Africa with its vast natural beauty is recognised as contributing to the cultural wealth of the world. This places a heavy responsibility on all our shoulders as custodians of these special places to protect the heritage of sites such as St Lucia, not only for ourselves but for all of humanity; not only for the present generations but also for the generations to come. At the same time, we are alive to the fact that here is a co-existence of beauty and poverty, of the pristine St Lucia lying side by side with the decay and underdevelopment of the vast area of Maputaland, and this therefore, poses a direct challenge to all of us to ensure that the positive impact of the recognition of St Lucia is used to change the face of the surrounding areas and bring reconstruction to the people in this part of our country.

Seabee History: Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm
On 2 August 1990 the armed forces of Iraq began the invasion and subsequent conquest of the Emirate of Kuwait. Under United Nations' auspices, the United States and other member nations responded by deploying military forces to Saudi Arabia. The immediate goal was to forestall further Iraqi aggression; the long-range goal was to compel Iraq to withdraw from Kuwait. The initial allied military undertaking to protect Saudi Arabia was dubbed Operation "Desert Shield."
Among the U.S. forces deployed to the region was the First Marine Expeditionary Force. Seabees were to provide construction support for this force. On 7 August the Seabees began preparations to deploy four battalions to the region: Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 4, 5, 7, and 40. On 13 August the first Seabees arrived in Saudi Arabia, an element of Amphibious Construction Battalion 1, comprising 210 personnel. These men immediately went to work unloading Marine Corps equipment and supplies from Maritime Pre-positioned Force ships.
During the period 10-20 August, 100 Seabees of Amphibious Construction Battalion 2 departed Norfolk, Virginia, on amphibious ships bound for the Persian Gulf. While in the gulf these Seabees participated in numerous exercises with the Marines to prepare for an amphibious assault in the region.

Dominica also has had some success in increasing its manufactured exports, with soap as the primary product. Dominica also recently entered the offshore financial services market. ...

Three burglaries were reported on different yachts moored in the Malgretoute area of Soufriere on the night of January 9. In one instance, the robbers made away with 700 Euros. In the second case, the intruders rifled through the main cabin of one yacht, scattered credit cards and took away some items. The crew called in the SMMA Rangers who in turn summoned the Police. In the third incident, the crew on board a yacht scared the intruder/s away. These incidents have been reported to the Caribbean Safety and Security Net which has in turn advised authorities in St. Lucia.

    By Janette Hull A Nation that encourages sports and gives encouragement to its athletes is enriched in many ways. We make friends through sports. More nations are brought together by sports like cricket, football, athletics, softball, netball and many more. Netball is one of the many games played in Nevis, but not many Nevisians know the role this game has played over the years, nor even how it started. Did you know that netball has put Nevis on the world map? If not, please read on. Netball originated in the United States of America, and was introduced to the Caribbean by Physical education officers from England who came to the Islands on teaching assignments. Althought the game is played in the USA , it is not popular, whereas it is popular in the United Kingdom. Netball in Nevis is without a doubt the outstanding women’s sport. Prior to 1950 Netball was introduced and played by the Excelsior School on the grounds of St Pauls Rectory. An annual competition was held between the Excelsior School of Nevis and the Girls High School from St Kitts. 1939 - 1940 saw a change. Schools no longer exchanged visits, but ex-pupils from the Excelsior School and the Girls High School played matches in both islands with Nevis always winning. 1945 - 1955 teams from the Charlestown Girls School and ex -pupils from the Charlestown Secondary School practiced at Liburd’s Yard (the ground on which the Administration Building now stands).
