Since Hurricane Maria touched the entire Caribbean it is hard for anyone who knows ones , lived or visited any of the islands to not care and be concerned. US citizens or not, the entire Carribbean has given the Earth a consciousness and connection to Africa and the Culture developed through each islands way of finding sovereignty and defending it. Whether in the drum beats preserved, or the rich indigenous history that proves our presence in the west before Columbus. The Caribbean has shaped world view through music and African awareness and reverence. The Word “Hurricane” is a Tiano word from the native people of Boricau aka Puerto Rico, the same natives that have given over 500 words we use regularly. Like BBQ, ( another Taino word) it has transcended words, it is a link to how we used to relate and how many of us still do. Keep good relations and lets focus this year to helping out St. Croix, St. Martin, Dominica, Puerto Rico, do more than recover, but collectively realize that warming water is a result of rising temperatures. That this is man made to a heavy degree, a result of green house gases, majority are from THE MEAT INDUSTRY, AND THEN OIL AND GAS. The people of Caribbean have suffered massively for crimes that they have contributed and benefited least from. This is a bigger issue of how the Earth is treated, and whether we let the most murderous governments use the environment to spread a neocolonial agenda that only increases poverty and world suffocation. I suggest that everyone see the speech made by the Prime Minister of Dominica to the United Nations about 2 weeks ago.
With that said, we are having a concert to raise awareness, and some money. It will be sent directly to a Ras in PR who is responsible and an honor to have in the community. I would like to send a warm hail up to Fikir Amlak and Brizon for putting out an album where 100 percent goes to PR. The link for that album is. https://iroots.bandcamp.com/album/fikir-amlak-brizion-we-live-on-dubplate-for-charity
