Yes Ones...

I had the opportunity to take in "Life and Debt" this past Thursday at a film festival in Toronto and recommend it to any looking to further understand the relationship between the International Monetary Fund, The World Bank and Jamaica.

The film delves into the economic plight and decline of Jamaica and how governmental loans, trade sanctions and tourism have affected this island in the sun.

Check it here:

This movie is EXCELLENT...it is a good demonstration of the tactics the IMF and globalist/capitalist forces use to keep the cycle of neo-colonialist exploitation and oppression thriving. I recommend EVERYONE see this movie!

TRULY, a great documentary that touches on many aspects of how JA is affected by this evilous capitalistic system... and also give a broader overstanding for other countries as well. The IMF is cruelty and they've got JA right where they want as they don't have the means of production to keep up with the modernized farming (Using Machetes while others are using machines!) so they can't be an active part of the world trade.. they need imports and have no means to export and it's only causing the debt to increase.
JAH knows sufferation runs RED down there..

Spirituality is not theology or ideology. It is a simple way of life, pure and original as was given by the most high. Spirituality is a network linking us to the most high, the universe and eachother

Yes...

I think what I found most appauling was the fact that Jamaicans can find produce from other countries to be less expensive than the same items that are grown from their soil.  The reality is this is happening in most developing countries, not just Jamaica.

The IMF definetly has its hands in the pockets of the poor.  

Thanks for responding...
