Foundation We Want Bonaire Back
I interviewed 2 activists fighting for the survival of their country. They are James Finies and Davika Bissessar Shaw.
James and Davika are both presidents of 2 organizations fighting against the Dutch’s attempt to extinguish the indigenous people of Bonaire. Click on the following link to hear their story: https://youtu.be/akq9GH_ZmOw. Pictures above and below by Davika.

The Dutch government wants to incorporate Bonaire in its Constitution. We rejected that in a 2015 referendum, but the new government is determined to do it anyway.
We have a population of about 19,000, but it has double recently because of the threat of being displaced by European Dutch Citizens.The Dutch government has opened immigration 400% for European Dutch Citizens, while only allowing back 25% of returning Bonerians.
