Rastafari Global Secretariat – Vision and Mission statement

Rastafari Global Secretariat – Vision and Mission statement

“Today, 85 years since its inception, the movement has established a vibrant presence in every country on the face of this earth. This is all the more inspiring in view of the ostracism and persecution the movement suffered in its earliest days when it was viewed as a cult of outcasts plotting the destruction of western society (Babylon). Rastafari has entered the mainstream of society. Adherents of the movement are to be found in all professions, emerging as doctors, lawyers, architects, politicians, cultural activists – and not merely as stereotyped singers and players of instruments. But that growing credibility has not been reflected in any formal authority or institution that represents the global community. Rastafari is ‘tolerated’ – rather than respected for the unique contribution InI have made to a new world order based on equal rights and justice. Expectations of repatriation to Africa remain largely unfulfilled. Claims for reparation for the manifold injustices inflicted on the movement are still outstanding. Despite the manifest maturity of the movement a lot more needs to be achieved before Rastafari takes its rightful place as a ‘Nation among nations’ with identifiable mores, traditions, customs, practices, lifestyle and belief system. The Rastafari Global Secretariat will aim to fill this gap in representation of the international community in the modern world.”
