    "1) seeks fair (re)distribution of resources, opportunities, and responsibilities;2) challenges the roots of oppression and injustice;3) empowers everyone to exercise self-determination and realise their full potential; and 4) builds solidarity and community capacity for collaborative action.""Political leaders, or the phenomenon around them, and social causes often cannot be fully explained or understood with one or two labels. Much depends on the lenses of the onlooker impacted by the perspective from which they come".excerpt from jamaica observer columnist  Grace VIRTUE.


    THE campaign to posthumously exonerate Marcus Mosiah Garvey is a noble and constructive effort by his family, the Universal Negro Improvement Association, and others to exculpate him from a wrongful conviction, while mobilising public sentiment in support of his life, legacy, and the ideals for which he was falsely imprisoned.As an extension of Garvey's personal quest to repudiate this travesty of justice, we consider it our inherent right and moral obligation to hold the Government accountable for correcting this shameful act of injustice. While we concede that we best vindicate his name by demonstrating the soundness of his ideas and the infallibility of his logic, we must never forsake any opportunity to unequivocally denounce this egregious injustice and demand its judicious redress.(  columnist jamaica observer Mwariama KAMAU) caribbeanradioshow.com crsradio.com call in 661-467-2407
