Gambia Leaves Commonwealth

“Gambia will never be a member of any neo-colonial institution,” said a statement announcing the West African nation’s recent withdrawal from the British Commonwealth. Although no reasons for Gambia’s leaving were revealed, the withdrawal comes amid a greater emphasis by Britain — Gambia’s former colonizer — on human rights and equality based on sexuality, reported the Guardian.
