Gordon Barlow’s resignation from the HRC will set back the progress of human rights in the Cayman Islands, maybe for years.
No one on these Islands knows more about human rights and the world’s human rights organizations than Gordon. In fact, he can’t be replaced.
Cayman has just lost the voice of its most capable human rights advocate. This does not bode well for Cayman where human rights are well behind those in other developed countries.
Cayman will have to adjust eventually and the loss of Gordon Barlow will only prolong the agony.
