We the undersigned call upon Prime Minister Christie to cancel any and all negotiations on the proposed Chinese Fishing/Agriculture venture and to keep fishing 100% for Bahamians. Additionally, we urge that crown lands be granted to Bahamians for farming and that the back log of applications for crown lands be assessed as a matter of priority.
Update #26 years ago
It's been 21 days since the story broke about the Bahamas government's secret deal to hand over 50% of our fisheries to the Chinese. The Minister of Agriculture and Marine Resources Alfred Gray says the deal is still on the table. Tell him NO WAY. By law fisheries is owned by Bahamians 100% - please continue to share this petition!
