This is a web site dedicated to Shashemene, Ethiopia.
It is the home of the Rasta's and the land given by HaileSelassie I for repatriation.
Iformation from Wikipedia about Shashemene and the land grant.
Quoted from Wiki
It is said that Haile Selassie stopped his imperial motorcade when passing the Shashemene settlement once circa 1968, gotten out, and asked "Where are my people?" Local Rastafarians stepped forth and replied "Here we are Your Majesty, here we are" and "Hail to the Lord’s Anointed Great David’s Greater Son here in this time appointed his reign on earth begun", bowing profusely. He asked them if there was anything they wanted, and they replied, "We want to stay here your Majesty". The Emperor then responded "Really, well why not, why not, let them stay"

Greetings in the name of the Most High

Emperor HaileSelassie the First
