The day is also celebrated as International Day of Non-Violence. Mahatma Gandhi who was born in India on October 2, 1869, is regarded as one of the greatest proponents and practitioner of non-violent protest for civil liberties.

Minister's charge

I remain hopeful because of the giftedness of the Jamaican people; their warmth and creativity; their dynamism and indomitable spirit that have resulted in excellence in all sectors.

It is by tapping into the gifts and awakening the spirit of the Jamaican people that we will, by God’s grace, re-group, re-engineer and re-open to a brighter future with Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport.
