Wadadli Journal Antigua Barbuda

The first edition of Wadadli Antigua journal became available on the web in 2009 as an obscure but relevant part of the untold story of Wadadli, and to provide intellectual property and copyright information amidst widespread unsubstantiated claims and assertions about the name Wadadli.

Now that the story's been told and the facts are finally established, we've decided to redesign and changed the purpose of the site. The new Wadadli Antigua website is a unique and unconventional publishing platform designed to provide continuous objective review and analysis of the past, present, and future of Antigua and Barbuda.

Political power in Antigua is a luxury shared exclusively by two political parties that emerged from a power struggle between different fractions of the two Trade Unions AWU, and ATALU in the 1960s.

Political Parties

Two parties eventually emerged from the struggle. Vere Bird formed the (ALP) Antigua Labor Party from the ATALU, and from the AWU, George Walter formed the (PLM) Progressive Labor Movement. Successive leaders of both parties still dominate Antigua politics and Government today.
