Rastafarians praise new BVI government for revoking ban
Nov 03, 2003
We congratulate all Rastafarians who have successfully opposed the law. The petition campaign at GoPetition, Liberate Dreadlocks In The BVI outlines the issues.
Rastafarianism emerged in Jamaica in the 1930s, with the descendants of slaves angry over colonial oppression of blacks and attempting to reconnect with their African roots. The religion was popularized in the 1970s through reggae artists such as Bob Marley and Peter Tosh.
