On this day in 1962, Jamaica brought down the Union Jack, and became an independent country. From the Arawak to the Taino, through the Spanish and British colonizations, our history makes us sensitive to the quest for justice – not just for the oppressed on the Rock, but all people who are kept down across the world.
Steel Pulse stands with the spirit of Jamaica. Yes, Jamaicans can be proud of our contribution to the arts, culture, music, and sports. But there is much left to do. The answer has always been the people, and we long for a true democracy – one that includes all of us under the black, green and gold.
