Jamaican independence day marks one year after independence, with the country set to mark the day with a peaceful march.
A joint statement released by the country’s president, John Mahama, and the prime minister, Winston Churchill, said the celebrations would celebrate the independence of the islands from Britain.
They also promised to ensure the independence and independence of all Jamaicans.
The march will take place from the Jamaican Parliament building in the capital, Kingston, to the island’s main military base, Colombo.
A separate event will take over a nearby shopping mall, where hundreds of people are expected to take part.
The country’s independence movement, which started in 1869, is still largely peaceful.
But its members have been jailed for breaking a peace deal between Britain and the British colony.
On Wednesday, the British government suspended talks on a formal peace deal, saying that the two sides could not “accommodate each other’s demands” without a deal.
