    1. Ricky Tam from one side of his mouth he says it’s not anti vax but yet every other word that comes out of his mouth is about not taking the vaccine

    2. @garey gordon As I asked uou elsewhere, do you have a comprehension problem?

      If I protest being told that I must eat foreign food in Jamaica does that mean I am against foreign food? Why can’t it simply mean that I am protesting being FORCED to do so? Why is that so hard to understand or do you have a difficulty with understanding the difference between one thing and another?

      Does a protest in Jamaica against being forced to eat foreign food that is untested and of unknown safety standards mean that I am against foreign food in general? Does it mean I am against others eating foreign food? Does it mean I am also against the same type of foreign food with good safety standards that could be grown in Jamaica or the Caribbean? No, no and no. Each is a separate issue.

      Don’t twist YOUR words and meanings and make that the protesters’ fault. You are quick to suggest that your fellow Jamaicans deserve harassment by tax payer paid police and that Jamaicans are wrong for defending a right to freedomes that you should protect and demand also. The danger of people like you is you feel ‘right’ and ‘smart’ for being cowardly and fearful, unable to think for yourself, and easily taken over by evil and corrupt forces. Perhaps it is people like you who are more dangerous than the ‘virus’ or governments forcing untested medications on populations. Unfortunately, you seem to be the careless majority..

    3. @MusicAcrossAges at this time no one is being forced to take the vaccine. Any one who makes you feel that way, you don’t have to believe them. At the end of the day majority of Jamaicans will take it. I hear that the vaccine lines are impressively long. The objective is that enough people will take it and herd immunity will be created so that we can move on from this terrible pandemic.

  1. this headline is misleading, the man wasnt making an ANTI- vaccine protest, he was protesting about mandatory vaccination which means he wants those who wish not to take it to have sole decision making over their bodies which is a constitutional right in a democratic nation such as Jamaica. The vaccine is not the only option but Andrew presents it as if it is, the UK doesnt recognize this as an official vaccine, persons who are traveling , who are fully vaccinated are still not being granted access. The people were protesting peacefully while wearing their masks, the prime minister allowed elections to take place in much larger numbers so to order the officers to take a man in custody for this reason is ludacris, had he applied for a permit it would not have been granted. This shows that we are under a dictatorship leadership because of people who abuse their power and take advantage of people who are ignorant to what their rights are and they make laws who protect them while doing this.

    1. @Kross The rights of the abusers of our laws must also have limits. Naturally, if the law makers are the worst abusers of the law themselves then declaring disasters under false pretenses to commit further abuses should be a treasonous crime.

    2. @MusicAcrossAges He wasn’t being abused. He broke the law about gathering of over 10 persons and got arrested. He is now on bail. He is not being beaten by police etc.

    3. @Benjamin Strawde this is jamaica u dont have any rights once the goverment say u no have no right they make sure a that by doing illegal acts and against human rights which we dont have in this country

    1. Valerie Tate the whole world is like that because of the virus. People want their lives to go back to normal but they don’t want make the sacrifices. The vaccine is the only remedy out there right now to save the lives of people who have underlying illnesses and who have gotten the virus

  2. When did pro choice turn into anti vax. Why can’t people just choose? Can someone tell me how choice became illegal?

    1. Any government denying you choice is a dictatorship; be it vaccine, politics, anything. If denied freedom of choice, you are denied freedom.

    1. @Marvin Walker He’s taking the poor for granted and it displeased the almighty to mistreat the poor and vulnerable.

    2. The media is lying to the people with their numbers. People are suffering from the covid virus in both hospitals and at home however the case count is way below what is put out to the public.

  3. Tvj is so in controudiction. Their questing the rights of the protesters while complaining about rights of the press. You can’t have it both ways, rights for all or no rights at all.

    1. Fitara Jones- Wallace and yet every word that comes from the mouth of the people who are taking part in the protest is against taking the vaccine

    2. @garey gordon If I protest being told that I must eat foreign food in Jamaica does that mean I am against foreign food? Why can’t it simply mean that I am protesting being FORCED to do so? Why is that so hard to understand or do you have a difficulty with understanding the difference between one thing and another?

      Does a protest in Jamaica against being forced to eat foreign food that is untested and of unknown safety standards mean that I am against foreign food in general? Does it mean I am against others eating foreign food? Does it mean I am also against the same type of foreign food with good safety standards that could be grown in Jamaica or the Caribbean?

The danger of people like you is you feel ‘right’ and ‘smart’ for being cowardly and fearful, unable to think for yourself, and easily taken over by evil and corrupt forces. Perhaps it is people like you who are more dangerous than the unsafe and untested vaccines.

  4. You be talking about if the police is aware of the freedom of the Press, when you not highlighting the freedom of the people’s right to choose.

    1. That kind of law is none acceptable, what about the voice of the people its the people right for there voice to be heard. i though black people was free but in so many words it’s not.This kind of Law needs to be demolish. Both parties need to come together and stand up for there rights. the press is the voice of the people. without the people vote he would never become a Minister i know he would be the worst minister JLP ever had.He is a disaster to the poor, and if the people dont stand tall there’s going to be war and more weeping. I will continue to pray for my people. I don’t have a good feelings.

    2. @Rhona Harris only when is election time or dream weekend it’s ok to have large gathering, it’s such ashame to see how the police are treating the people because they are standing up for their rights

  5. The Constitution of Jamaica CHAPTER 3 SECTION 13 e) “the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association;”
    f) ” the right to freedom of movement “. NO LAW shall be passed by parliament that infringes on these rights, no police can make a peaceful protest or march illegal. The rights shall not be infringed.

  6. Why TVJ have such headlines and all the protest was about freedom. Too much double standard in this country. Freedom of speech taken away
