the centrality of struggle and liberation of our people.
RAS TAFARI movement has its own principles, methods and uniqueness. it is part of the attempts to restore black liberation , divinity , nationhood and royalty.there many other movements within our people working for the above but have their own ways and means,
What has happen i think we have lost focus. For me HAILE SELLASIE is a fighting god, a god who does not tolerate oppression.He has inspired a generation of revolutionaries and has supported many struggles against colonial regimes.He worked fpor AFRICAN unity.
How are the hungry going to be fed, the sick nourished, naked clothed,infants cared for and age protected? Attempts to do so have forced me and brothers to learn the basics of struggles from Nkrumah,Fanon,Cabral,Toure, KwameTure and Biko who like GARVEY ARE NOT rastafarians but one will see that it is NATURAL PROGRESSION once ones start dealing the 5 ppoints from the HOLY PIBY and Bhinghi creed.
So I am saying AS RASTA PEOPLE LETS RESTORE THE REVOLUTIONARY ROOTS OF RAS TAFARI
