The Caribbean Rastafari Organisation (CRO) will be holding an executive council meeting in St. Lucia from Friday 27 September to Sunday 29 2013.
The purpose of the meeting is to strategize and prioritize the programs of the regional network for the next five years.
The CRO which was conceptualized out of the International Rastafari Conference, Trade Fair and Cultural Expo held in Bridgetown, Barbados from August 17 to 27 1998 has as its main aim and objective:
“To organize and centralize the Caribbean Rastafari communities through sustainable trade and developmental programs and activities in pursuit of our ultimate goals of Repatriation with Reparations.”
On Sunday 29th September, there will be an open house reasoning at the Vieux-Fort Primary School on the subject “Reparations” in light of the decision taken by the Caricom heads to pursue reparations for Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, Caribbean slavery and native genocide.
An invitation has been issued to the various rastafari mansions and organs in St. Lucia to be part of this discussion as the CRO is expected to produce a position paper on Reparations to be presented to the Caricom Reparations Commission.
Sunday’s meeting is expected to commence from 4 pm at the Vieux-Fort primary School and all other interested parties are welcome.
