MESSAGE FROM THE RASTAFARI INTERNATIONAL THEOCRACY ASSEMBLE JUNE 18/ 1986.
Today when we look at South Africa, our hearts mourn and the blood and tears of all people of African descent the world over, have become one in the struggle for African redemption. Countless Martyrs have given their lives and their freedom for the cause. Millions of Africans the world over are enraged at this outrageous criminal activity by the South African regime, against the sovereignity and dignity of Africans everywhere.
The system of apartheid is parasitic and thrives off the subjugation of millions of African people the world over through the power of the gun, and the collaboration, of racist goverments. Without this external collaboration, we are certain that the minority racist regime of Botha would have collapsed long ago.
This apartheid system is not isolated or confined to South Africaa alone.In every country throughout the world, the people of African descent are victims of the system of separation and subjunction. As a people, Africans have been underated and denied their rights everywhere. In their homeland, Africans have been robbed of their land, murdered and enslaved by Europeans. In Britian, Africans are hunted and murdered by the national front. In the USA the Klu -Klux-Klan is burning out and killing Africans who are labelled as niggers. In the Caribbean where the vast majority of the population are descendants of African people, neo-colonialism is choking our
people and the slave masters are still in control of the resources of the nation, while the African workers function as wage slaves, doing all the dirty work, while living in poverty. So, a few families control the wealth of the nation, while the majority of the population squabble for the left overs. The few blacks who have made it and join the clique in Beverley Hills, have blinded their eyes to the hardships of the masses of African descendants who are living in poverty, and forget the struggle of African people for compensation and repatriation.
The Honorable Marcus Garvey said "when you see a black King crowned in Africa, know that the black man's redemption is near". The Rastafari brethren are pioneers in the struggle for African redemption and will never give up the fight. The struggle for African redemption must be fought on all fronts, and Africans everywhere must struggle to free themselves from slave masters rule and set up apparatus for transfer of power, from a minority nationality to a majority nationality, in order to speedup Africa's liberation and safguard world peace.
THE ABOVE MESSAGE WAS CREATED BY Ras Iyapert(Rupert) for The Rastafari International Theocracy Assemble and was publised in a booklet titlED, A TRIBUTE TO AFRICAN FREEDOM FIGHTERS AND ALL PEACE LOVING PEOPLE OF THE WORLD.
This article is a true reflection of the Liberation thinking of Rastafari people during the 80s and before.
Take the best care of yourselves and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
Baba Ras Marcus.
