End Corruption Antigua

Antigua St. John's - End Corruption Antigua is a campaign launched by the CAC, Citizens Against Corruption group, that want to bring awareness and fight corruption in Antigua and Barbuda. 

The CAC was established following the publishing of recordings and documents in the public domain that show strong evidence of corruption under the former ALP.

For the first time in our country's history, we the people have seen unedited, hard evidence of corruption, and still nothing has been done to hold these politicians accountable.

As ordinary citizens, we find this situation unacceptable, and the End Corruption Antigua campaign is our response to these politicians.

If you have any evidence of corruption and want to help or join the CAC, email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

We've opened a petition demanding that (1) the involved politicians resign; (2) that the involved politicians be brought before a court of law. Help us by signing our petition at: http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/end-corruption-antigua/.


Below are stories following investigation and exposure of recordings by senior ALP members.

If you Sir take the time to look on this very site you will notice a call for the investigation into the Wadadli Power Plant debacle...funny enough, I don't think you signed!

Can any UPP supporter tell me why after hearing of those corrupt deals of hundreds of millions of dollars (sidewalks; roads; car park; etc.) you still vote for them? I truly am curious to know.

Like Lemmings people of your ilk continue to exhibit selective moral values! :-x :-x :-x

All politicians are the same. So while exposing ABLP don't forget UPP. They promise to put an end to corruption but they are just as bad. No more pull strings to get job etc but still happening. Now more than ever. Say one say,two

Okay I'll ask why

#15 JP Farnswoth » 2014-04-14 12:10

Why hasn't anyone been arrested? Did time run out to prosecute? Why do people still vote for them? Is it a zombie like mentality? Like Lemmings people will follow them over the edge of the cliff?
Can any ALP or ABLP supporter tell me why after hearing those tapes you still vote for them? I truly am curious to know. :-x

We are Smarter than that!

#14 Annita » 2014-02-13 14:04

We are much smarter now then we were 10 years ago. Thanks to this news portal. The question is>>>>(now that we know all of the players and the election is just around the corner) Do we want more of the same???? Spencer is smart enough to deceive us but not smart enough to run a Country that demands Honesty, Integrity and the needs of our people. He has had 10 years to fix our problems to no avail. You don't hear from during his term but now with 3 weeks to the election he is all over the news. WHAT"S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE????? Where did the Allan Stanford funds go.? I want an audit !!!! We are going to get whacked by the Privy Council's ruling soon. This is no joke that he keeps shoving under the rug..... Is that why Spencer is waiting for a sign from GOD to set the Election Date?????

#13 Observer... » 2013-12-28 12:01

Come out in the light and don't hide behind some new movement. As Skyewill says, don't stop at only ALP wrong doings. The list is much longer. About 90% of our politicians need to be investigated. And that proofs to you how we love it so. I do hope someday a new generation may rise that would not stand for this. Before Jacqui got in to politics she was running around begging for a job. Now!! just look at the life style. Before 2004 John was bankrupt he beg Stanford for a job running Sticky Wicket. Now. Before 2004r Wilmouth was running a little supermarket on St. John street opposite Straffie. Driving some old jeep. Now!!!!. Before 2004 election Lovell office hardly had any business. Now!!!. You can go down the list and compare all the politicians standard of living before 2004 and now. And we know how much their salary is. That is no secret.

#7 Time to pay » 2013-10-28 14:24

Yes Skyewill is on point...again..! Let us look at what Spencer, Simon and Lovell are up to right now.

Why did Simon set Lovell up to take the fall with HMB.??? Look Simon is doing what regarding the WTO? Why would spencer let Simon leave Lovell in the Sh-T...! Why is Spencer not stepping up to the plate and putting a stop to Lovell costing the tax payers more money on the HMB matter and the Airport. Lovell should be writing bonds and paying these things off.

People wake up..!

I will wait untill all is revealed

#5 Observer... » 2013-10-28 10:18

This is disappointing. I was expecting something more, something that sticks more than what went before. Is this really all that can be made public without being sued for libel. Wikileaks would have revealed it all, regardless. I know it's easier sad than done. Because some one will have to pay the damages if any. So CA why not give it to Wikileaks and let us go read it there.
No wonder the public prosecutor have studied it and say there is nothing to sue in law. Unless you have people who want to testify against their own interest. But I do think the persons involve should quit public office forthwith. They have lost all our trust. With a doubt. Whether guilty or not. where there smoke there is a fire.

#4 wrong » 2013-10-28 09:49

with over 15 articles worth of information in front of you, and advertisements about Asot Michael, Robin Yearwood, and Lester Bird "enjoying corruption", I really don't see how you got the conclusion that Caribarena is being sponsored by the ABLP. Unless the ABLP are sponsoring Caribarena to reveal the ABLP's own corruption, in which case, you might be right.

#3 LadyLuck » 2013-10-28 08:45

Caribarena is now openly supporting the present ruling party! Here I was thinking they were supporters of ANTIGUA AS A NATION. Seems like no one is in it for our Country or the people. The people must step up now, those that are not on any side but are genuinely interested in taking this country forward to the benefit of EVERYONE, without fear or favour! This is a huge blow for all of us. :sad:
