Message to Rastafarians,  Ethiopians, and all who
Love Justice and hate aggression!
(added: October 2018)
"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
International President
Imperial Ethiopian World Federation, Inc. (I.E.W.F.)
I.E.W.F. Policy Programme
The present political upheaval in Ethiopia and the overthrowal of Emperor Haile Selassie I and the abolition of
Constitutional Monarchy, have resulted in policies in Ethiopia that abbreviate repatriation in Rasta lifetime.

In the face of this Rastafarians have to acknowledge that their Jamaican nationality, their Ethiopian sovereignty and
the ability to survive economically, cannot exist without the presence of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile
Selassie I and an effective Crown Council. There is no representation for Rastafarians dealing with repatriation,
either in the west or in Ethiopia.

This makes the Imperial Ethiopian World Federation Inc., (I.E.W.F. Inc.,) have to utilize the broadcast of King Ahma
Selassie I as the preamble of the I.E.W.F. Inc., Political Programme Policy for the directive of our future personal and
Rastafarian objectives. For our future Rastafarian objectives we should interpret the speeches of His Imperial
Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I as the criteria to call all Rastafarians together to consolidate something meaningful
such that the world will see a meaningful effort from the Rastafarians worldwide after over a decade of spiritual and
passionate dream of the Rastafarian during his lifetime.

Rastafarian beliefs were born out of politics from 1916 to today we have to unite and that can only come about
through the 1993 Broadcast of King Ahma Selassie I to Rastafarians those that love justice and hate aggression. We
have to create an effective organized policy Programme through farming to consolidate our economic viability,
spiritual change through ‘tradition and customs must be modified to ensure the continuity of Rastaism.

The Rastafarianism is older than the two political parties in Jamaica. We have to go back to the blackboard and
accept that repatriation became our passionate desire and made us forget ourselves as the economic man and the
question of our political responsibility and not only our spiritual life today after the advent of 1974-75. We are
frustrated because we still are preaching repatriation and there is none as there is no political mechanism set up
outside of the I.E.W.F. Inc., with opposition from other Rasta organizations who are living in the past.

How can we survive in the twenty-first century with just sentiments? We will have to call a conference and accept
the leadership of the Imperial Ethiopian World Federation Inc., and the Political Programme.  The I.E.W.F. Inc.,
contested three (3) general elections in Jamaica, we have an elementary school, a medical center and Temple
Worship Oneness. We also have a Farming Project ongoing with over ten (10) acres of land to plant reap and become
economically viable.

We believe that if we have a conference it will result in finding people who want to contribute something
meaningful.  Jamaica is a democracy in Jamaica then we must put it on trial. We have to participate in politics to
ensure our political, economic and spiritual survival.

We must create our own perestroika to the current economic system. We have to go back to the drawing board and
question where we are coming from, where we are today and where we are going in the future. We must believe that
repatriation is abbreviated and think more along the lines of creating economic viability, low cost houses, schools,
clinic and Temple worship and try to bring back law and order with training centers for the youth.

His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie I speech on leadership must be the criteria to approach our political
quest for Rasta representation in Parliament and our Policy Programme for the development of Rasta in the future
through involvement in the politics of Jamaica as Rastafarians.

Man is a political animal. Politics is the food that you eat, the clothes you wear and where you live. We cannot focus
on the past, the former things of old identified in Isaiah 43: 18-19. We have to move politically in Jamaica as Jamaica
Nationals and Ethiopian Sovereigns and try to change the politics of Ethiopia and Jamaica from neocolonialism,
nepotism and corruption.

This writing is introducing a Policy Programme that is open to debate and discussion in the interest of getting a
broad consensus on our future as a people. We need people who are in search and believe they have a contribution
to the question of a Policy Programme for Rasta Political future.

Commentary
...the Jamaican Democratic Socialism and opposition in Jamaica is not prepared to give the Rastafarian movement representation
in the Parliament as a minority within the political Democracy of Jamaica.

...15% of the Jamaican populous is Rastafarian and the Rastafarian community is older than the two Political Parties; yet there is
no voice of an independent Senator for the Rastafarian.

The Rastafarian communities need help in the areas of basic schools; clinics and social welfare
assistance in the rural areas.  Without a "Voice" of Representation in the Jamaican Parliament for the Rastafarian, Our
communities will not benefit from the Government in the near future.  It is important
that Our Rastafarian communities in Jamaica and worldwide agitate for a Rastafarian representative in
the Political systems of Jamaica to address these concerns and donate financing when possible.

Give Thanks!
