Are we ready for it?

The news headlines have been punctuated by a growing discussion on #TambourineArmy. It has leapfrogged from the realm of social media and demanded its place in the mainstream. The conversation, mounting in intensity, draws Jamaicans to look at the way in which some of us make our views heard and advocate for change. Contributor Lorenzo Smith wades waist-deep into the discourse and poses the question that must be answered by all of society; intellectual minority, man in the street, Farmer Joe, and the honourables: Are we ready for radical advocacy? It’s on The Agenda.
