The Democratic Freedom Movement (DFM) was a political party in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
In 1974, the Democratic Freedom Movement (DFM) emerged out of the Educational Forum – a group that sought to bring political education to the masses of St. Vincent. Two DFM members contested the 1974 general elections - Kenneth John (the Leader) and Eddie Griffith (the Chairman) - but received a combined 217 votes and failed to win a seat. The party did not contest any further elections.
In 1978, the DFM combined with the People's United Congress (PUC) of Carlisle Dougan to become the People's Democratic Movement (PDM). Shortly before the 1979 elections, PDM entered an alliance with another group consisting of Yulimo and Arwee. It was an alliance not a merger. The new alliance called itself the United People's Movement (UPM). UPM entered 12 candidates for the election. Soon after the election, PDM withdrew from the UPM because of ideological differences. Since the 1979 elections, the PDM has been completely dormant.
The party symbol of the DFM was the tree.
