Jamaica: The Young Lion Roars, part 1

Chris Salewicz, New Musical Express, 27 May 1978

"WELCOME TO REMA," reads the spray-can graffiti down by 7th Street in Trenchtown. "Peace, Love And Unity". Over on the other side of the Calamite Road, the No Man's Land separating the PNP Concret Jungle from the JLP Rema district of Trenchtown, there's a similar ideological message of hope "Enter Socialist Town We Love Cuba."
