      How is mining going to kill people? Crazy? you do realize that it took a team of trained professional to decide that mining the area would be safe and bring economic gain to the country.

    This is outright ridiculous from the Government. Spoiling the natural habitat and beauty of the area.

      @Rolando Walcott The worst thing about is that the monies earned from bauxite will go the overseas company. Invariably its not benefiting us in any sustainable way. We hardly own anything at all. We used to benefit alot economically from Bauxite in the 1960’s -1970’s as it was state owned but its not so in essence no real gainful multiplier effect from its manufacturing and production.

      @Deverton Pasley Yeah… but as the PM said mining is one of the main drivers of the economy in jamaica. If it wasnt generating income we would have stoped by now.

      @Rolando Walcott Time will tell if this will sustain Jamaica’s crumbling economy.Too much corruption and beauracracy in the country.

      @Deverton Pasley This i can agree on.

    Nothing wrong with mining as long as they fallow protocol

  5. Jamaican government will sell any and everything for money smh

  6. Agriculture and a wide variety of byproducts is the best option for Jamaica, both locally, CARICOM and the wider global market…to keep focusing on mining is extremely short-term and not sustainable. As for developing residential properties, sustainable vertical designs are options to be considered so as to preserve our landscape and mitigate urban sprawl 🇺🇲🇯🇲

      Agriculture! Haha in this globalized world jamaica cannot compete with other agricultural countrys such as most of south america, new zealand, and african countrys. We can barley feed our citizens with our local markets there is a reason jamaica imports billions of dollars worth of food stuff. Jamaica needs to cut the s%&t and invest in its human resource and move to a specialized manufactoring and service products.

  7. They just don’t care. Money money money and to hell with the health and well-being of the people. Environment? Who cares? Money!!

    What does these people need development or selfishness people need work

  9. Why would you want to call a mess with that piece of property like that what about the Jamaican people we doesn’t have any talk and what you government do Things need to change government need to ax people that lives in community if it’s OK for them to come and D cop that’s why they are dear Not to do what they want we are the people we have a voice start to use your voice

  10. The LOVE of MONEY has CHANGED BRO GAD attitude towards his fellow Jamaicans…he looks and talking like a person who has forgotten his roots🤔

      Let me ask you this what do u think the money from mining will be used for?

    • Preston Matthews | November 13, 2020 at 7:03 PM | Reply

      @Rolando Walcott oh so you’re defending the Government’s action and inaction. In essence, you’re a Government mouth piece and not a logical or rational critic.

    • Rolando Walcott | November 13, 2020 at 7:17 PM | Reply

      @Preston Matthews haha your logic is pure gold! (Sarcasm). Lets me point my question to you then. Show me an alternative solution that can provide the same amount of revenue has mining this area?

    • Preston Matthews | November 13, 2020 at 7:27 PM | Reply

      @Rolando Walcott hahaha I am very verse in sarcasm so do you really want to traverse down that road? Why as a country aren’t we tapping into renewable energy? Are we just sheep to the beck and call of other countries? Why can’t we lead the way in renewable energy?

  11. 1brogad

  12. Not feeling this one Brogad 🤔 overturning scientists recommendation? You sound like Trump now, and me nuh like nothing Orange or red, me bleed green blood.. but you gone off track right now 👀

    • Rolando Walcott | November 13, 2020 at 6:33 PM | Reply

      If the scientist have concerns about the safety of mining the area it is the governmeng respnsibility to deal with those concern during the mining process. Jamaica needs economic revenue to solve serious issues brought by 2020.

    • Preston Matthews | November 13, 2020 at 7:04 PM | Reply

      @Rolando Walcott in essence, poisoning our ecosystem to make an almighty dollar. What kind of straw man logic is that?

    • Rolando Walcott | November 13, 2020 at 7:23 PM | Reply

      @Preston Matthews polution for a time yes, but all nations big or small polute their land in hope for a better tomorrow for example: america during the gold rush and oil excavation(water), europe burning coal (air) and most recently china burning coal and fossil fuels which the mined (air).

      @Rolando Walcott those examples that you’ve given have put in place things to buffer the effects of climate change. What tangible things is the Jamaican Government putting in place to navigate these issues or are you going to deflect?

  13. Special interest groups always get what they want in Jamaica.

  14. Very disappointing. I do recognize however, Jamaica, in the past weeks has suffered billions of dollars in damages due to flooding caused by climate change and frequent storms. Higher Healthcare spending due to the covid19 pandemic, reduced tourism for 2020 and possibly 2021 and into 2022 (because of the pandemic) has placed Jamaica into an economic bind. The government must acquire funds where it can, to make up the shortfall and keep the economy going.

  15. Bro gad a deh watch u… How u afta our natural habitats… And then u complain about the effects of climate change

  16. Hasn’t that area been sold to Canadian mining company from a decade ago? If that is the case, this was the plan since then and short of buying it back from Canada, there’s nothing else that can stop it.

  17. I am really wondering if Andrew Holness really understands the quality houses in that area, that road was open by the Queen of England in 1953. That areas was the top residential area in Jamaica at one time, it was a lot of white living in the area. I could guarantee Andrew Holness that when the Queen relatives lived in the area,anything they said is law and. If he refuted it, the Queen removed him from power are. When those custos useto be incharged of each parish, anything that the government is doing. The government would haveto contacts the custos of the parish, now adays.
    These younger generation in Jamaica like Andrew Holness and his colleagues them,they are only there for one purpose is. Just to enriched themselves and,by all means on the backs of the people them. Because some of the people them like his supporters them, they are a just a fools. They will sellout themselves for a few dollars during the election time, the election is over and. The money they got throughout the election, that little money is done long time. While the majority of them now is suffering big time, they cannot even able to buy a few minutes. That is why you don’t see those brutes,flooding the internet like one time. It is full time that the PM Andrew Holness should learned to respect the constitutional rights, of the people of Jamaica. He is very much abusive towards the people of Jamaica, but how long he can continues with it.

      Point 1. Who cares about the “queen”🙄😒🤦‍♀️full time jamaicans get rid of that kind of mentality. Point 2. Do you have any proof that the money gained from mining is linked to the PM personal bank account?

    Andrew Holness cold like ice. Long time mi a warn people about this MP mi spirit turned from him.

    • Rolando Walcott | November 13, 2020 at 6:36 PM | Reply

      Why? Because him nuh listen to a few residents and nature activists. At this point jamaica is one step away from going through an economic depression which is far worse than losing a few trees. Money is what jamaica needs not sentiment.

  19. Sell out
