To help everyone with research, LALIT members have compiled a list of all the articles on the News Section of the LALIT website that are on Diego Garcia or Chagos or that refer to this struggle. As you know, the Diego Garcia issue is one of LALIT’s flagship campaigns. There are over 440 articles on the list. We know that this is a moment in history when many people are, perhaps for the first time, realizing the importance of the struggle on the Diego/Chagos issue.
Just click on the article in the Documents Section of our home-page titled “Diego and Chagos: Compiled list of News Articles” or
use this link, or cut-and-paste it: https://www.lalitmauritius.org/modules/documents/files/LalitMauritius-06eb61b839a0cefee4967c67ccb099dc.pdf
and you will get this wealth of information and analysis.
In this single Document on our site, you can get easy reference to articles over the slice of time – 2003 to Febuary 2019. Of course, our struggle dates from 1976 and will continue. The articles listed are from only the News archives (which you can open by pressing the MORE button on the home-page at News.) So, the list does not include items from the other sections of the site like Documents, Programs, the magazine Revi LALIT, Audio or Video files.
This Document, by listing all the articles, is a fantastic place to start, or to continue, research into Chagos or Diego Garcia.
