Chief Minister and Deputy in New York The Chief Minister, Fabian Picardo and Deputy Chief Minister, Dr Joseph Garcia were in New York in October to address meetings at the United Nations and Gibraltar-American Council.
In Mr Picardo’s speech to the United Nations, he said: “The people of Gibraltar voted fifty years ago in a referendum organised by the Administering Power, the United Kingdom. Five decades ago
we made our choice abundantly clear, by 99% to 1% we chose to remain British”.
In 2002 there was second referendum and the result was once
again 99% in favour of remaining entirely British. The Chief Minister made it clear that Gibraltar was a nation that is proud to be part of the British family of nations and the
nation of Gibraltar that we proudly call home.
Deputy Chief Minister, Dr Joseph Garcia addressed a meeting at the Gibraltar-American Council the following day, in which he told the council, that the core of the issue surrounding Gibraltar is that a people, however small, must have the right to determine their own future.
