Suspicion and frustration grow as Hurricane Irma evacuees find themselves unable to return home to Barbuda, whilst a law protecting the island from private and foreign investment is dismantled.

How to Help Irma's and Climate Change Victims

Portside
Hurricane Irma struck last week. Now, the people of Florida, of the Caribbean, of Cuba, they need your help and solidarity. Here are ways you can help rebuild Florida, help the frontline and people of color communities, help the Immokalee Farmworkers, who were amongst the hardest hit, and the poorest; and how you can help the Cuban people, whose doctors are out there helping others in the Caribbean. Please do what you can.
