Blessed love to Ones and Ones...
Iwomban here in JAH land, Shashemane Ethiopia. Giving thankhs to Igziabher!
It is not quite what I imagined here, the population being mostly Muslim it seems, and only a very small minority of RastafarI. From what the Idrens tell I, the fire is very hot here, Rasta have been killed, or the government takes their land. Three years ago the number was about 2000, now it is 200, because many people have gone away to escape the persecution. At the same time it is a beautiful place in many ways, and the Idren and Istren I have met here are astoundingly friendly and welcoming.
I wonder if the I dem have any ideas or comments on how RasTafarI can Itinue to hold firm and even grow beyond the former population here in Shashemane. It seems beyond shameful that RasTafarI can face such persecution in the land that Ab Qidus set aside for the I's, when even in babylon Rasta are left alone to do their thing, or even admired in pop culture.
Itinual Love + th ANKHs for life
