The blood that was shed and the sufferings that were endured are
today Africa's advocates for freedom and unity. Those who refused to
accept the judgement passed upon them by the enemy, who held
unswervingly through the darkest hours to a vision of an Africa
emancipated from political, economic and spiritual domination, will
be remembered and revered wherever Africans meet.  Many of them
never set foot on this continent. Others were born and died here.
What we may utter today can add little to the heroic struggle of those
who, by their example, have shown us how precious are freedom and
human dignity and of how little value is life without them. Their
deeds are written in history.

- Emperor Haile Selassie I
Greetings Brothers and Sisters, One God, The Power of the Trinity –His Imperial Majesty, Emperor Haile Selassie I

From the moment we are born and throughout our life we are governed by politics. Politics governs: the food we eat,
the clothes we wear, the air we breathe, the water we drink, the medicine we take, the  vaccination our babies are
given, the education our children receive, the mind of the mentally unstable, the institutionalisation of the young
men/women in the penal system and where ones are laid to rest.

Although the Rastafarian People make up a sizeable percentage of the Jamaican population, they have no political
representation, and as such have no voice in the Upper House - the Senate or the Lower House - House of
Representatives.

We must be courageous to change the things that we can change.

Please support Ammanuel Ascento Foxe, Commander of the Order of the Star of Ethiopia, as Senator in Jamaica
Parliament to represent Rastafarian people and all conscientious people in Jamaica.

Please visit the Church’s website at
www.himchurch.org and leave your name and email address to support this
application.

One Love
Haile Selassie I Liveth!
Message to Rastafarians,  Ethiopians, and all who
Love Justice and hate aggression!
"There is no Repatriation"
The time has come when we as Rastafarians, Haile Selassie I-ites should be asking  the question of our passionate
desire for repatriation and our survival as a people.

From 1930 to the present moment in time, our cry for repatriation has become domicile with respect. In 1974-75,
the abolition of the Monarchy of Emperor Haile Selassie I’s rule by a proclamation by the Stalinist government, has
destroyed the hope and aspiration of millions of people. Today Rastafarians are at a crossroads. The question of
where we are coming from, where we are today and where we are going. Ethiopia has had a long line of Kings and
monarchies stretching back over three thousand years.

There is no Ethiopia today because the Monarchy is absent. What will we tell our loved ones and families. Are we
going to tell them that we made a mistake and fail as how the Christ Jesus movement failed the people who are
looking to return to heaven and up to now has not  found heaven. Buddah, Ramah and other great seer movements
failed, yet their membership still have faith in their leaders. The Rastafarian movement is different because it is not
eccliastically organized with a leadership of spirituality.

For the first ime in history there is a Rastafarian doctrine or theology called Rastalogy with a spiritual leadership
from the Abuna, compatible to an Overseer (Ezekiel 2: 5 – “And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will
forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them”; yet be able to
give the respect spoken of by Emperor Haile Selassie I’s speech on leadership and what the leader expects from the
membership. The lack of acknowledgement of this leadership has caused a stagnation and a negative development
that today the abolition of the monarchy and no repatriation in our lifetime, leaves Rastafarians naked and socially
and economically displaced.

This is why we are calling this International Conference to discuss where we are coming from, where we are and
where we are going. The question of no repatriation in our lifetime with the abolition of the Solomonic dynasty
cannot be accepted.

The Ethiopia of today that we are seeing with the Oromo Liberation Front (OLF), the All People Amhara
Organization (AAPO) and the Tigray People  Liberation Front (TPLF) etc create a problem of over two million
displaced people which cannot be solved without the presence of the Monarchy. If there is no Emperor Haile
Selassie I dynasty and only the Stalinist/Marxist government under the disguise of democracy being pushed by the
present Prime Minister, who wants to become King with the blessing of his mother, then there is no repatriation.

With the setting up of his kingdom with his own generals that he pardoned and returned from exile, including
Mengistu, the question of Rastafarians in Ethiopia who is not identified as a part of any ethnic groups in Ethiopia,
who will represent them? Only Emperor Haile Selassie I. The statement made by Emperor Haile Selassie I in the
Parliament of Jamaica in 1966 that Jamaicans and Ethiopians are ‘blood brothers’ is not supported by the present
government. So repatriation in the eyes of the present government is nonexistent.

Today, the Church of Haile Selassie I and the Imperial Ethiopian World Federation Inc., are the only legal entities in
the world that represent Rastafarians whether they accept it or not.

Please come to the conference with any opposition to the above statements or questions dealing with repatriation
in our lifetime and seeing where we are going in the future with our loved ones and families.

Abuna Ammanuel Foxe

Brief history of I.E.W.F. Political Party
Ba Beta Kristiyan 'The Church of Haile Selassie I' (The Church) and The Imperial Ethiopian World Federation, Inc.
(I.E.W.F.) is a spiritual and political organization.  Supporting Rasta beliefs in the West and Jamaica, the
Headquarters of the The Church and the I.E.W.F.

The Brethren and Sistren participated in the 1997 and 2000 General Elections, as well as, the local government
election in 2003.  There were members contesting the election from Kingston to the country areas.  The Rastafarian
Community was very supportive of our effort.  Most of the Rastafarians are not politically motivated, but if we don't
have members in parliament and local government, then our voices cannot be heard.  Rastafarians are about 40% of
the Jamaican population, but as said before, they are not politically motivated.  In the upcoming election we must
have someone elected in the parliament to represent the Rastafarian Community.

We want to have our own schools, health centers, etc., so whenever our children go to school they can be respected
and loved by all.  Our community must be very strong both spiritually and politically.  In the Caribbean, the
Rastafarian Community lacks local leadership.  In each Caribbean country where The Church and The I.E.W.F. offices
are located, we strongly encourage members to be politically motivated and contest any government elections held
in their respective countries.

In Jamaica, The I.E.W.F., Inc., is the first Rastafarian organization to run against the JLP and PNP, the two major
political parties in the country.  Each time we contest an election, our candidates' votes increase significantly.  As
long as there is an election in Jamaica, we will be supporting I.E.W.F. members representing their constituency.

In the last Jamaican general election, The I.E.W.F. had a political meeting in Central Halfway Tree, which went well
with an overwhelming support from Rastafarians and people who hate aggression.  Rastafarians in Jamaica are
educated people such as Lawyers, Doctors, Nurses, Project Managers, blue collar workers and hold prominent
positions in the private sector.

There are other Rastafarians organizations that choose to be non-political, but they will have to change their
perception about politics because it is the only way to have representative is by having a member in parliament and
the Senate.  For example, with a member in parliament, we can address the incidences of police brutality,
employment (last hired, first fired), etc.

The I.E.W.F. will have to take up the initiative to educate the Rastafarians about the importance of exercising their
franchise by being innumerated to vote in every election.   By doing this Rastafarians will have a voice in parliament
at all times.  Rastafarians who participate in the election are people who live in the area and know the needs of the
community.  It's not like the other parties where the candidates come and talk to the people then go back up town to
their mansions.  When Rastafarians get power in Jamaica, there won't be any political killings of innocent citizens
because this happens only because of the constant PNP and JLP segregation.

Our members when elected in Parliament and Senate will look after everyone's interest, not only Rastafarians.  The
citizens of Jamaica will know that Rastafarians are not just herb smokers; they have people's interest at heart.

Rastafarian Holy Days
~~~
7a
 
Rastafarians have many days that are celebrated and recognized; 5 days amongst many, which are
considered  special and sacred are:
 
Earthday (Earthstrong)
The date in which we are given life to serve our God in the image in which we are created; to serve with all our
mind, heart, and soul.
May 5th (5th of Miyaza) - “Fasika” (Passover)
This day represents a major Holy Day with service.  After service, family day celebration starts with the playing
of Rasta Music (e.g., Reggae) with refreshments, closing with a prayer from the Priest.


...Today is a day on which Ethiopia is stretching her hands to God in joy and thankfulness and revealing her
happiness to her children....  This day, on which the people of Ethiopia are freed from oppressive foreign yoke and
eternal servitude and on which I am enabled to rejoin my people, whom I love and have longed for,  will be honoured
as a holiday to be commemorated annually as a Great Ethiopian Anniversary.  On this day we shall remember those
heroic warriors who, determined not to surrender the great charge passed on to them by their Father, became
sacrifices, shedding their blood and breaking their bones for the freedom of the land they loved and for the honour
of their Emperor and their flag.  The history of Ethiopia will be witness for these Our warriors.
July 23rd 1892 (16 Hamle) - 2nd Advent of the Cosmic Christ
Rastalogy accepts this day as the Second Advent of the Cosmic Christ, fulfilling Isaiah Chapter 9 v6, “For unto us
a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, Tafari.”.

This day represents a major Holy Day; celebrated as a family day with a short prayer service giving thanks to
Yahweh, for  the birth of His Son, Tafari.  Service starts (e.g., 11am), followed by a celebration consisting of
Rasta Music and food.
October 7th 1928 (7 Maskaram) - Divine Kingship of Rastafari
This day represents a Holy Day.  This is when Rastafari was acclaimed ‘Negus’, King of Ethiopia, fulfilling Isaiah
43v15
, “I am  the Lord Rastafari your Holy One Creator of Israel, your King.”.  The Church of Haile Selassie I
celebrates with short Prayer  and Service starting at 11am.
November 2nd 1930 (2 Tikimt) - Transfiguration Day
This represents the Transfiguration Day of  Negus Ras Tafari to Emperor Haile Selassie I, ‘Might of the Trinity’  
fulfilling  
Revelation 5v5, “The Lion of the Tribe of Judah has prevailed.”  This day represents the Holy Day when
Rastafari was  acclaimed ‘Negus Negast’ King of kings Emperor of Ethiopia; Fulfilling
Isaiah 43v15;

“I am the Lord Rastafari your Holy One Creator of Israel, your King.”

This day is celebrated quietly with a short Prayer Service (e.g., starting 11am).  Then celebrate with Rasta
Music, rice and  peas, vegetables and  fish, closing with a short Prayer of thanksgiving by the Priest with
blessing.

The history of Ethiopia for the past half a century has revolved materially around events in which Haile Selassie
First has been  the prime mover.  In times of stress, in times of joy, his leadership in resolving the hopes, fears and
aspirations of the Ethiopian people has been distinctive, his guidance indispensable and decisive.  His people and
the world have acclaimed him a fighter not  only in defence of the integrity of Ethiopia.  He has been a champion for
world peace and a man whose principles have contributed manfully to the history of his day and age.  His public
utterances in this phase of the national and international drama of peace and war speak by themselves most
eloquently.
Holy Day Donations
This is an opportunity for all those who believe in the plight of Ethiopians, Africans, Rastafarians, and
conscientious people  around the globe, who Love Justice and hate aggression, to pledge their support by
donating to
The Church of Haile Selassie  I and the I.E.W.F. in the execution of the Aims and Objectives of the
Imperial
Ethiopian World Federation.

We overstand the various financial pressures we face in our daily lives and the numerous worthy causes
needing our financial contributions; therefore we are asking our supporters to "reach out" on each of our Holy
Days and donate (1$, 5$, 10$, 20$, 50$, 100$, 500$+, etc.) whatever we are able to give on one of those days
listed above (no amount is too small).  We hope this relieves some pressure, but still provides specific
opportunities throughout the year to contribute to a cause important to each of us.
 
Thank you! Bless!
We welcome whatever support we receive and ask that JAH richly bless our supporters.

Thank You! JAH Guide and Protect!

Malchijah
Servant of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I
