Falkland Islanders Fight for Their Sovereignty


The people of the Falkland Islands have finally begun to speak out against the dispute over their sovereignty.

Roger Edwards and Michael Simmons of the Falkland Legislative Assembly joined a Council on Hemispheric Affairs roundtable on June 7 to give voice to the Falkland people.

This analysis was prepared by Taylor Stout, with contributions from Aisha Espey and Sarah Slater, Research Associates at the Council on Hemispheric Affairs.
