In need of protection

Protection for human rights, bio-diversity, history and tradition. Protection is a word with several meanings in Guadeloupe. A recent history of blood shed to fight slavery and of worker immigration from all over the world, well documented in the museum Memorial ACTe, is at the base of Gwada modern society.
