Links to Videos of the Speakers:

In October 1983 the United States invaded Revolutionary Grenada. They seized the bodies of Maurice Bishop and others who had been killed with him a few days earlier. These they took away. Despite numerous calls, over the years, from the families of the slain, the Grenadian public, Governments, religious and community leaders, the American Government has refused to return the remains.

The US administration’s refusal to act leads us to launch a campaign to force them to explain what they did to them and return the remains of the Grenadian leaders so that they can be given a proper and dignified burial.

We need your help

Sound research has been carried out in Grenada and in the UK into what happened to the bodies of Maurice Bishop and others, we now need as many Grenadians, other concerned persons and organisations as possible to put pressure on the government of Grenada and the US to seek the return of the their remains.  This will enable their families and those who care to organise a proper burial and erect a lasting memorial.
