United States of Archipelagos: An Intimate Take on the Chagossian Struggle


Chagossian artist Audrey Albert and Mauritian research designer Shane Ah-Siong wrote the following text together (nb. the first person parts refer to Audrey’s personal experience). In it, they describe the Chagossian struggle for sovereignty since the 1960s, when the entire archipelago’s population was evicted from its land to make space for a Britain-leased U.S. military base.
