#NoMore Movement Africa’s Most Powerful Voice: Rastafarians

1 min read

The #NoMore movement is becoming Africa’s most powerful voice in this generation, according to members of Rastafari community living in Ethiopia.

The
Rastafarian Orlando Thomas told ENA that the #NoMore movement is happening like
the Black Lives Matter movement or any major movement that occurs over
years. 

People
have come to the point where they want change and something better than now.
Such normal movements are very important, he added.

Thomas
further noted that the movement is not only in Ethiopia, but also in
Washington, Seattle, Miami, Florida, west and South Africa, and everywhere now.

“The
#NoMore movement has become so big that anyone who tries to stifle the voice of
this continent can no longer do that. This is the biggest voice that we’ve had
in generations. So, the #NoMore movement is one of the most powerful things
that has come out of Africa in our generation.”

Ras
Haile Tiger Silassie said on his part that Africans have to unite and start
doing things more for themselves.

He
pointed out that Africans have to start trading more with people that are like
minds; the Caribbean, for instance, black people in America and Ethiopians in
America.

Tiger
Silassie said the#NoMore movement is good, and “I’m doing my part like a lot of
other people to show that it is really necessary.”

According
to Carol Rocke, Ethiopia has a long history; and it is the only country that
has never been colonized.

Ethiopians
have been fighting for their rights for hundreds of years, she stated, adding
that what the international community has to do is leave Ethiopia alone as they
can deal with their problems by themselves.

The
Rastafari community are encouraging the people of Africa and the diaspora in
America to show their support for Ethiopia by carrying placards and making it
known on Facebook and twitter and other means.

They
have also pledged to support the elected government and to make sure that they
can help the efforts move the country forward.

A
Rastafari community from around the world has been settling in Ethiopia for
the last 50 years, after being given land by Emperor Haile Selassie.
