In memoriam Rosie Douglas

Il y a 20 ans, le 1er octobre 2000, disparaissait Rosie Douglas, Premier ministre de la Dominique, qui a œuvré toute sa vie politique pour un rapprochement des pays de la Caraïbe.

“Grand ami de la Guadeloupe, il a toujours œuvré pour la coopération entre nos deux pays. C’est avec lui que le CO.RE.CA a organisé sa première activité en novembre 1992 pour célébrer le peuple Kalinago au moment où les Européens fêtaient les 500 ans de l’arrivée de Christophe Colomb”, commente Julien Mérion, l’âme du CO.RE.CA.
