Senegal Offers Land to Haitians


The president of Senegal Abdoulaye Wade (left) has offered free land to Haitians. He said, Haitians were sons and daughters of Africa since Haiti was founded by slaves, including some thought to be from Senegal. We would give them a whole region if they turn up in large numbers he went on to say.

Will they take up the offer? Would the president like some Jamaicans also? Marcus Garvey first supported the 'back to Africa' notion and is still thought of as a hero by many black British and white liberals. http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/historic_figures/garvey_marcus.shtml

Also bearing in mind the Rastafarian 'religion' sees Ethiopia as the black homeland, and many Jamaicans relate to this 'religion', it is quite an interesting notion the president has proposed.
