KINGSTON, Jamaica - The Ethio-Africa Diaspora Union Millennium Council aka Rastafari Millennium Council (RMC) and Solomonic Productions will stage a motorcade and soap box march to address the Ganja Bill. The march is expected to take place on Saturday. In a media release issued Thursday evening, it noted that the march is in its third year following the historic Rastafari ‘Ganja March’ of 1994. The motorcade/march is in remembrance of the 150th Anniversary of the Morant Bay Rebellion, and the first Global Ganja March which will simultaneously take place with other Ganja Marches in over 100 Cities across the globe the release added.
The route for the motorcade/march is expected to start from the Emancipation Square in Spanish Town at 10:00 am. It then goes on to the Nelson Mandela highway, then unto the Spanish Town Road. It then travels on Marcus Garvey Drive leading unto Michael Manley Boulevard, Sir Florizel Glasspole Boulevard, moving unto the Bull Bay Main Road that will lead into St Thomas. The Motorcade will end at the Goodyear Factory in the vicinity of the Gas Stations at the roundabout.
The group says it is hoping to use the rally to educate the general public but specifically the Rastafari community on how the Ganja Bill will be impacting on the communities in regards to the economic opportunities that will become available.
They said as the Ganja Bill outlines the legalities for cultivation, it becomes very necessary to address land tenor-ship.
