Smiling as he looked over the crowd of thousands gathered at the National Arena, the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan said, “Jamaica, you are a pearl in the Caribbean. So much has come to the world from this island in the sun.”
But the island in the sun and her smaller sister nations are not completely free and must unite in the face of efforts from America and Europe to control Jamaica, her land, her people and to keep the land and the region under their thumb, said Min. Farrakhan, speaking Oct. 19 in this capital city to mark the 19th anniversary of the Million Man March and to raise the importance of the values of atonement, reconciliation and responsibility.
Throughout his message, the Minister encouraged Jamaicans to begin producing their own food and to begin extracting themselves from the colonial grip of the queen of England and countries in Europe that import food to the island.
“Feed your people, feed the region, feed the world,” said the Minister. “We’ve got to break away from the imposition of your colonial slave masters!”
