• Hypocritical and illegal acts against Venezuela

        The recent movements on the international and diplomatic scenes are jaw-dropping. 34 countries have recently ‘out of the blue’ decided to recognise speaker of the House Juan Guido as the interim president of Venezuela, shocking news to me as I was pretty sure that Maduro won the...
  • Come with more effort when dealing with Caricom

        Caribbean integration, the creation of a federation or simply the harmonising of our collective policies and laws, has long been the dream of persons living in the region who both see our untapped potential and those who understand that the region will only advance with true independence...

    Justice for all or justice for none

    Recently the Jamaican Parliament has been looking over a revised set of traffic laws. This was done due in no small part to the embarrassing fact that every few years the State does a blanket ticket amnesty which raised facts such as individuals having hundreds of unpaid traffic tickets....

    The nation is in shock to the core at the recent announcement by the Public Defender that hundreds of children have been held in detention (sometimes extended) under the SOE in St James and parts of St Catherine. People’s stomachs are made to turn when they hear tales of...

    Now is the time for serious land reform

    Land and the ownership of it is a touchy topic. From Scotland to Zimbabwe, the topic stirs many emotions and talking-points. From Guatemala to Vietnam we see where land reform can lead to violent conclusions. The situation in Jamaica is no different, where for centuries the topic of land,...

    Back to Africa

    Marcus Garvey is rightly lionized as one of the key figures behind the pan-African movement. He, more than most inspired black people, feels a pride which had long been slumbering due to centuries of non-stop exploitation and the accompanying brainwashing which is necessary to ensure that people are open...
