    123rd Anniversary of Adwa Victory to celebrated in Cape Town, South Africa by the RasTafari Movement.

    The RasTafari Movement of South-Africa (Azania) through an association of various organisations and collectives, invites the public to attend the Adwa Day march to Parliament.

    The Community-based event commemorates the 123rd anniversary of the Ethiopian Victory against Italy at the Battle of Adwa in 1896.

    It is also an occasion where the Leadership of the RasTafari movement in SA highlights the marginalisation, discrimination, criminalisation and victimisation of RASTAFARI adherents in South Africa.

    The delivery of our memorandum of grievance to the secretary of the speaker of the South African Parliament is the highlight of the RasTafari’s Movement’s programme to mark Adwa Day Rastafari Nation March 2019. This will be precluded by a legal protest March from Kreizengracht parking lot down to Parliament where the secretary to the speaker will be receiving the memorandum from the RasTafari Movement’s ambassador.

    Rastafari Ambassador and activist lawyer Gareth Prince who has been at forefront of the legal battle against the State to decriminalize cannabis will be the main speaker at this historic commemoration.

    Leaders from the various organisations involved will make short addresses in commemoration of Adwa Day Victory and also the Plight that RasTafari people face under the current government.

    It should be noted that the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL) conducted a research report in 2011-12, titled “Challenges faced by Rastafari communities in South Africa.” Which looked at Rastafari religion and culture. As well as detailing the very challenges and abuses the RasTafari community face in South Africa.

    On 18 September Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo handed down the Constitutional Court’s decision to decriminalise the personal and private use of cannabis, ordering the Government to legislate new laws around recreational and sacramental use of cannabis. The RasTafari structures involved in these judicial matters with the state have not received any feedback, 4 months after the judgement, from the various portfolio committees and ministries of the government who are liable for criminalization of religious practice, socioeconomic oppression and civic marginalization of RasTafari adherents.

    A key demand of this march is the inclusion of a delegation, from the collective that is organizing the march, be part of the legislative process for the new law on personal use of cannabis.

    Adwa Day Rastafari Nation March, which falls on 1st March annually, will be taking place for the fourth consecutive year on the 123rd Anniversary of Adwa Victory Day, which is also an official holiday in Ethiopia. This is a day to affirm and reflect on the only independent African nation that defeated the European colonisers, as RasTafari is a Movement that is Ethiopic in its Worldview, ideologies, philosophies and frames of reference to culture, spirituality, arts, knowledge, consciousness and beliefs.

    The purpose of the Event:

    1. Raising awareness and increasing Public understanding of RASTAFARI People and the marginalisation they face in society, both in the public and private sector.
    2. THIS EVENT IS NOT ABOUT DAGGA LEGALIZATION per se, it is in fact about collective governance, collaboration, networking, partnership, to ensure human rights and justice, to maintain the integrity, dignity, fundamental principles, philosophies of RasTafari communities do hereby establish and ordain on the basis of respect to the South Africa constitution.
