Reasonings from the Publisher
Reissue 3 Volume 1: Autumn 2002
"We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations but to our fellow men within the human community."
- Emperor Haile Sellassie 1 1963
Glory to word, glory to sound, glory to the power of the living I, Emperor Haile Sellassie I 1st and Empress Menen, the father and mother of Iration.
These could be the last days; the threat of war is now at our doorsteps. America and Britain military apparatus is positioned to strike Iraq. If and when this occurs or manifests, it could mean the movement of the world closer to World War III. Is this the long awaited Armageddon?
"To win the war, to overcome the enemy upon the field, cannot alone
ensure the victory in peace. The cause of war must be removed. Each nation's rights must be secure from violation. Above all, from the human mind must be erased all thoughts of war as a solution. Then and then only will war cease."
- The Imajesty Haile Sellassie 1 1945
Racism is a potent force in the power-balance of today's world. Iman recently attended the follow-up World Conference on Racism in Bridgetown, Barbados, from October 1st to October 6th 2002. A secretariat has now been set up,with Barbados as its temporary HQ. InI must be mindful that no amount of legislation can eliminaate racism and racist behaviour.
It will take re-education and the dismantling of capitalism and its down-pressive institutions. Reparations and Repatriation must be unified.
The United Snakes of America, Holland, Britain, France, Spain, Switzerland, etc must pay! The large conglomerates: Barclays Bank, Lloyds of London, Unilever, Rothschild, Rockerfeller, etc must be held accountable for the crime of bloodsucking.
It was our foreparents' blood, sweat and tears that made these multinational and transnational corporations filthy rich. InI need backpay! The word is out. InI need the technology, resources and money that can help develop Africa. Money is not evil.
It's the way that money is used that can become evil. Money is the root of world economics. InI need to be rooted so as to develop an industrial Rastafari and African nation. Let us be mindful and prayerful...
InI international Rastafari community has been plagued with illness and sudden transition of brethren and sistren in this time.
InI send out condolences for the recent passing of Ras Dou Layish, Martinique, our little brother Hailu, son of Ras Iral and Sis Margaret (Barbados CRO), Sister Chantelle Felisha Moodie (London) and Ras Kebrila Amiak of EWF London. They all moved forward early in their time. InI give thanks for life.
Rastafari Speaks moves from strength to greater strength.
The call goes out for inification of the Rastafari community on a global level, and the African community in general. InI welcome your
word-sound from all comers of the earth. All praises due to the living
Irator of the universe.
Emperor Haile Selassie I
Perfect love, Ras Sekou
