At 2:43 p.m., the motorcade rolled from the regional headquarters of
the University of the West Indies, where the CARICOM meeting was held,
to the Mona Campus just across the way.

We entered through gates and followed a driveway through a grassy
campus set against a lush green mountain. An embassy official tells
your pool the campus is formerly a plantation, which was later
converted into a refugee camp called Gibraltar Camp.

We pulled up to a building with a large mural on the side and entered
a spacious auditorium where young people are seated in rows of plastic
chairs. On two sides of the room is a horizontal drape of red, blue
and yellow fabric and a crest with a pelican on top. There are flags
lining one wall.

The open-press town hall just got underway.
