Voices from the Margins – Shiloh

Shiloh en route to work
There should be equal rights and justice for all people that suffer from Hurricane Irma. We got to get the hospital up and running, the police station back on the run, and development can come after that…and let the life grow again. Development means to me to go slow, take it easy. But the Antiguan government is looking for a quick fix. We are a small population, and if they are going to develop all those hotels, people from outside will come and over power us."
Codrington sunrise

I often saw Shiloh cycling around Codrington and he’d stop to ask how I was enjoying Barbuda that particular day, usually shadowed by a small child asking to borrow the bike he was riding. Bikes were seen throughout the day with a different rider each time. This illustrated Shiloh’s explanation of how family and the community shared and helped one another to ensure no-one was without, now that everyday life was hindered by the slow recovery process after Irma.
