In Response To: Land Grant Agitation Needed Among Africans (ras marcus)
Rastafari people who are living at Shashamane in Ethiopia, from time to time try to encourage other Rastafari people to come home to Shashamane, and that is a good encouragement because Africa is for Africans those at home and those abroad. But when people are invited to come to any place there must be some kind of prepared accomodation to welcome home these people.
Presently it appears that Rastafari people only occupy a tiny fraction of the Shashamane Land Grant, and it also appears that they are being force off that tiny fraction which they occupy. So, what would happen if a thousand Rastafari people decide to come to Shashamane to stay in 2010, how would they be accomodated when those who are living there only occupy a tiny portion of the Land Grant and is actually being forced off.
Shashamane is not the only land in Ethiopia, and if most of it was taken away by Ethiopian Natives including the government, there is no reason to make a fuss over it, unless we have His Majesty phone number then we could give him a call and complain to him about the whole matter. In the meantime, we should investigate about other lands in Ethiopia and be prepared to buy some, or agitate for more Land Grants considering that we left our land in Mama Africa, since we could not have taken land across the middle passage. This is really something which we should not forget to remember. The journey of life continues. Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
