The People's Freedom Movement was a political party in Jamaica. It first contested national elections in 1955, but received only 647 votes and failed to win a seat.[1] It did not contest any further elections.[2] The party made a submission to the Joint Select Committee considering Jamaica's independence constitution, arguing for the inclusion of a provision that would allow for a referendum on becoming a republic.[3] The submission was not accepted.[3]
