KINGSTON, Jamaica — Prime Minister, Portia-Simpson Miller today called on Jamaicans to “acknowledge our uncomfortable truths and then find solutions to them”.

In her Emancipation Day message Simpson Miller said that the nation also had a responsibility to shape its future in continuing the work of its ancestors.

“As a nation on a mission, Jamaica must achieve economic, social, political and cultural freedom, “ the prime minister said.

“We must take with us the best of our past, the strength and convictions of the present, in order to achieve the promise of the future.”

Jamaica celebrates the 174th anniversary of the full abolition of slavery today and will celebrate its 50th year of independence next Monday, August 6.
