PINNACLE: The Birthplace of the RasTafari Movement

 

It was November 2014 when I learnt that the Birthplace of the RasTafari movement was being sold in lots and new houses built on top of our heritage land while the government was in full knowledge of what was happening. There was never a second thought about why we need to fight to reclaim this stolen history. The question was now, what to do, how to do it, who would help, when would it happen, where these moments would lead us to. On January 31, 2014 a group of RasTafari youths and elders from many walks of life came together to Occupy Pinnacle in defiance and protection of the Legacy, Roots and Heritage that these lands represented.  - Donisha Prendergast
