ABOUT PINNACLE - THE GIFTED LAND GRANT TO ALL RASTAFARI PEOPLES, PURCHASED BY LEONARD PERCIVAL HOWELL, FOUNDING FATHER OF THE RASTAFARI KULTURE.
Rastafari Kulture has been destroyed by Jamaica governments for over 80 years from 1933 to this day. Rastafari Kulture promotes peace love and international salvation. In 1939 Leonard Percival Howell and his wife Tenneth Bent Howell purchased 1,000 acres of land in Sligoville Jamaica in the name of The Ethiopian Salvation Society of New York and gifted it to members of The Ethiopian Salvation Society in Jamaica. The brethren were tormented and persecuted for their beliefs and their land confiscated by the rich planters and government of Jamaica. Now the Jamaica National Heritage Trust has protected the highest point of Pinnacle as a National Monument. Let Truth and Justice stand globally by donating to and protecting this unique global kulture. We must rebuild the Pinnacle and protect this global kulture.
PINNACLE was acquired by Leonard P. Howell for RasTafari Brothers & Sisters to Live, Learn and Grow within the context of their Indigenous African Heritage. The first self sustaining community in Colonial Jamaica in the late 1930's, using the farming of ganga as one of the main sources of economy for the people. The community was rich with crafts, farms, schools, bakery and a new way of thinking, a New Culture. It is the Birthplace of the Culture RASTAFARI
PINNACLE was eventually burnt to the ground by colonial powers in 1954 and subsequently, all residents had to take refuge in the Caves on the property. Since that time, the residents of the space, who are now elders, have received no acknowledgement of these atrocities, nor compensation. Instead, the lands of Pinnacle have been slowly captured and re-developed by Island Homes, led by the LAKE Family.Many of the remnants and evidence of Early Rastas have been demolished and new homes constructed on even the Ancient Burial Grounds of PINNACLE.
Now plans are now being made to STEAL PINNACLE from the RasTafari people and re-write our History through the framework of Babylon I Glass. It is now common knowledge that our present Minister of Culture Lisa Hanna and Richard Lake of Island Homes are in a relationship. The Minister of Culture has also appointed Michael Lake, his brother, as Vice-Chairman of the National Heritage Trust, which has acquired PINNACLE under the guise of protecting our Heritage.
A GROSS CONFLICT OF INTEREST
In addition, the NHT has open plans to hire the same Company Lake Home in question to re-develop Pinnacle with their Vision of what a "Commercially Viable RasTafari Community" should be.
RasTafari is recognized by the UN as an "Indigenous People" which means that we have Ancestral rights to our "Indigenous lands". Minister of Culture also recently lobbied for Jamaica to have a seat on the UN World Heritage Committee, yet in our homelands injustice and cultural corruption runs rampant
RasTa has been ordered to evict our Homelands by Jan 31, 2013.
We have been sold out by our Representation... Where is our Government?
I & I the People ARE THE GOVERNMENT!
Now, I & I must ORGANIZE. CENTRALIZE. MOBILIZE.
We will fight if we find it NECESSARY.We know we shall WIN
We are Confident in the VICTORY OF GOOD over evil.
THE TRUTH IS AN OFFENCE, BUT NOT A SIN.
Let us Gather in the Name of RasTafari and Humanity.The Time Is Now!!
