Grenada politics

Jean Augustine discusses the 5th anniversary of the Grenadian Revolution button.

Maurice Bishop, the Fifth Anniversary of the Revolution, March the 13th, 1984. The Spirit Lives. This is Grenada politics. And you know they had a revolution there when the opposition decided that they would become the government and then whatever happened in the end where Maurice Bishop got killed. I was in Canada at the time, but there were lots of supporters of Maurice Bishop here, Grenadians in the Diaspora. And so I think these buttons were circulating.
