Between a rock and a hard place

50 years ago, the Chagossian people were forcibly exiled from their homes in a covert operation by British authorities, in order to lease the islands to the US Navy, for the purpose of building a strategically placed military base in the Indian Ocean. Today, local leader Sabrina Jean works both locally, nationally and internationally to stop the renewal of the lease and for her people’s return to Chagos. ANOTHER PARADISE is an engaging eye-opener about the perpetuation of colonialism and the neglect of an entire people.
