The Privy Council in London will soon announce its decision on Barbuda’s airport construction.

The verdict will be streamed live at 7am local time, followed by a 2pm debriefing session on Zoom hosted by GLAN. Campaigners plan to celebrate the resilience of John Mussington and Jackie Frank, aiming to inspire others to resist harmful developments.

The case concerns wildlife habitat destruction and cultural disregard. Many Barbudans oppose selling land to foreign developers.

The government argues the airport is vital for the economy, expressing confidence that the case won’t hinder its plans. The airport’s opening is weeks away pending final approvals.
