Supporters of dancehall music have a reason to celebrate today, following Parliament's decision to remove Clause 15 of the Anti-Gang legislation.

That section of the act stated that "A person shall not use a common name or identifying sign, symbol, tattoo or other physical marking, colour or style of dress or graffiti or produce, record or perform songs to promote or facilitate the criminal activity of a criminal organisation", and was said to be aimed at preventing artistes from recording material deemed as being violent or supporting gangs.

The announcement of the removal of the clause was made by former Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture, Olivia 'Babsy' Grange, and Senior Superintendent Steve McGregor at a recent panel discussion at The University Of The West Indies, organised by the Mona Campus Youth League (MYCL), a chapter of Generation 2000 on the campus.

However, McGregor still stood his ground as it related to his stance on the controversial clause. He also revealed that the clause was created as a result of the Mavado-Kartel feud, which, he said, segregated dancehall fans and facilitated the rise of gangs in local schools.
