Rastafarians ordered to vacate Pinnacle, the legendary Rastafari Camp where Count Ossie and the Mystic Revelation of Rastafari built musical roots and many Rastas considered home.


This is extremely distressing. Came in my news box this morn ing.

I am a bit surprised no one has any thoughts about this situation. So I am bumping in hopes....

I can't say much cause I don't know all the details and what they say on the page there is pretty limited. I'm unclear whether it's a case of eminent domain , failure to pay property taxes, squatting, or any other number of things - and I haven't seen any local media coverage on this. Is there a resource for more information?

If it is government owned land, one would wonder why the current PNP regime would not try to come to accomondation for a long-standing community in this rural area.

I know there's a few Rastafarian lawyers in Jamaica, Michael Lorne comes to mind. I wonder if anyone has approached them about working this case? Land issues in JA can be a nightmare - I hope they get through allright and get to keep their homes

Yes very sad. A great book on the early history is "The First Rasta" by Helene Lee.
