Jamaica has got to become self-sufficient says Garvey

we import something as simple as onions, that is absolutely and totally ridiculous, Says Garvey, when we have a tropical country

The other Garvey: Julius Garvey

 

Hear what Garvey said to the Jamaican Government and people. ...The white economic structures is going to have to change. Jamaica has got to be prepared for that, where we've got to be self-sufficient, at the present time we import even something as simple as onions. That is absolutely and totally ridiculous, when we have a tropical country and we can have two or three growing seasons where you can grow anything: you can sow a seed out there and tomorrow you have a massive tree, not just a plant, so it's absolutely ridiculous for us not to be self-sufficient in food.

Our History Did Dot Start With Slavery

A people without a history of themselves is like a tree without roots, as the saying goes

This point was made very clear in the speech made by Dr. Garvey to an appreciative audience in Montreal recently. Garvey spoke very eloquently on the life and work of his illustrious father and what it was that had motivated him into action and launched him on a mission to redeem the black man and to reconstructing the African civilization.

Flip or Flop | Flip A Coin

Flip or Flop, we had to go backand do it right.

picture of 76. Clancy's journey (Revised Edition)

Flip a coin on this one to see what the outcome may be. That’s what the poet was left to do after
a reading of the books “Some Sh...y vacation” and 76. Clancy’s vacation in their printed forms showed a number of errors, jumbled sentences and misspellings.

Some of which (we believe was caused by issues with our transmission software or processes) We were being a bit overconfident in the processes which brought about the project at the first, so when a few issues were discovered, we attempted to correct those without doing the due diligence at each step of the way as we should have done.
