This chapter reproduces a speech by Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, on the occasion of the naming of the Maurice Bishop International Airport (MBIA) in Grenada in May, 2009. Gonsalves argues that the spirit and ideas of Maurice Bishop are alive and flourishing among the people of Grenada and the Caribbean. He applauds the naming of the airport as an act of the Grenadian people ‘coming home to themselves out of their agony and compromises, their pain and joys, and their triumphs and defeats of the past.’
