Following statements made by Prince William during his visit, the Advocates Network has strengthened their resolve to push Government for establishing a Republic Jamaica. The group rejected his statements as unacceptable and labelled his response ‘tone-deaf’.
No matter how loud the protests get, they must never be dismissed. Today, the voices joined together to show that there is strength in numbers. Abolishing the connection of England’s monarchy to Jamaica, according to some, is a need, as Jamaica must fend for herself.
Jamaica is celebrating the many challenges that we have overcome and continue to face as we recognize 60 years of independence from British colonial governance. The upcoming visit from William, Duke of Cambridge, and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge stirs increased agitation of the need for apologies and complete removal from the traces of colonialism.
