The Cross Rhodes Freedom Project has achieved one of its main goals - the removal of the name of Alfred Milner from one of the University of the West Indies' oldest halls of residence.

Director of the Project, Shabaka Kambon, says they are celebrating the victory that the name of the self-proclaimed racist is to be removed from the UWI Campus.

Mr. Kambon says they mobilised the students and talked with all stakeholders to work toward the name change.

However, the report ordered by the Vice Chancellor of the University drove the final nail into the matter.

Mr. Kambon said our first Prime Minister, Dr. Eric Williams, wanted to change the name of the Hall but did not do so as he was negotiating for T&T's Independence at the time.

The name change is now in the works, and Mr. Kambon and his supporters are glad for this, even as they continue to work on their other projects, including removing statues of Christopher Columbus and changing the signage at Lopinot, which they say invites visitors to pay homage to the slave owner.
