aint gonna go to Barbados

Barbados has a dirty secret: private parklands that attract the migrating birds so they can be shot for sport. Here’s an article that tells the unhappy story efficiently:

It’s not really a secret but it’s damn hard to find references to it on the internet. Let’s change that. And let’s link the end of the bird’s massacre to the only way Bajans have to make money: tourism. Please post the issue on your blog (or myspace, twitter, facebook or whatever you’ve got) and invoke the tag “aint gonna go to Barbados” every chance you get. If you contact me I will send you a periodic update and suggestions on how you can participate in demanding the end of this.
Peace,
P.
