The people of Grenada need answers

guardian.co.uk: "Twenty-seven years ago, on 25 October 1983, US president Ronald Reagan – with the active encouragement of his allies in the Caribbean region, Dominica, Barbados and Jamaica in particular – invaded Grenada with more than 8,000 land, sea and air forces. They were responding to the execution of prime minister, Maurice Bishop, who had led the island's revolutionary regime for four years.
The US troops battered the island for several weeks, amid fierce resistance from the Grenadian people's revolutionary army and the 1,000 Cubans who had been building the island's international airport.
