Prime Minister Hon. Philip J Pierre, will on Wednesday 11th May 2022, formally open a United Nations Seminar on Decolonisation, which is to be held at the Sandals Grande Hotel from the 11-13th May 2022.
The Pacific Regional Seminar on Decolonisation is held under the auspices of the UN General Assembly’s Special Committee on Decolonisation, commonly known as the C -24.
The seminar is held annually for the C-24 to obtain the views of the representatives of Non-Self Governing territories, Member States, members of civil society, and other stakeholders on policies that can assist the Special Committee in advancing the decolonisation process.
The theme for the 2022 Seminar is “Advancement of the Non-Self-Governing Territories through the Coronavirus Disease (COVID 19) Pandemic and Beyond”.
It will be presided over by Ambassador Keisha Aniya McGuire, Grenada’s Permanent Representative to the UN and the current Chair of the Special Committee.
There are seventeen Non-Self-Governing Territories (NSGTs) under the purview of the Special Committee: American Samoa, Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland Islands (Malvinas)*, French Polynesia, Gibraltar, Guam, Montserrat, New Caledonia, Pitcairn, Saint Helena, Tokelau, Turks and Caicos Islands, United States Virgin Islands and Western Sahara.
The administering Powers are France, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Approximately one hundred participants, comprising Special Committee Members, other United Nations Member States, administering Powers, as well as representatives of the Non-Self Governing Territories, civil society, non-governmental organizations, experts, and regional organisations have registered for the Seminar.
The Opening Ceremony for the Seminar commences at 10.00 am on Wednesday 11th.
In addition to the Welcome Address by Prime Minister Hon. Philip J Pierre, the seminar will include an address by the C-24 Chair, Ambassador McGuire, and a video message from UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

  1. Mr PM please ensure that they eat more green figs when they are here not the imported delicacies and please lead by example by making sure your plate is loaded with it .
    After that get ‘The Preening Prick ‘ Cashimir to take them to Gros Islet dance to catch Covid .

    • @ Peckerhead You MAD?! That will never happen,they will put on a feast for those foreigners.PM will let his Big Shots eat green figs? 😂 😂 😂,that kind of talk is only for PEASANTS!!!

  2. Shouldn’t this be held in one of the non- self governing territories? Or are we actually one?

  3. It would be so nice to have a add-on; Dr. Anthony would’ve been a valuable Geo-Legal expert and speaker in the forum. It should not hopefully be all politics, but the wisdom of the Law should show a way lost to many. Still no too late – don’t take them to the Flesh-Pots of Friday Night Gros-Islet and be mugged.
