KYMANI MARLEY SHOWS SOLIDARITY WITH VENEZUELA AT THE ROTOTOM SUNSPLASH FESTIVAL!

Several other reggae artists also expressed support for the democratically-elected government of Venezuela.

Reggae artist Ky-Mani, one of Bob Marley’s sons, showed solidarity with revolutionary Venezuela during this month’s Rototom Sunsplash festival in Valencia, Spain.

Several other reggae artists also expressed support for the democratically-elected government of President Nicolas Maduro, which has been directly threatened with military intervention by a Donald Trump administration which came to power after garnering second place in the popular vote but selected nonetheless by a minority electoral college.

During the festival, Ky-Mani held up a sign that read: “Respect Venezuela. Trump Hands Off Venezuela,” according to a video posted by Noticias 24.

Tiken Jah Fakoly, famed reggae artist from the Ivory Coast, also offered his opinion, “We love Venezuela. Africa loves you.” After recalling that Africa is the “mother of humanity” he concluded that the continent is “singing to you and, Viva la Revolucion. Rastafari!”

This year Rototom Sunsplash welcomed organizers and participants from the Venezuelan Festival Otro Beta whose performance installations and headquarters were completely burned to the ground in the Venezuelan city of Maracay, near the Caribbean coast on June 24. The arson attack occurred during violent opposition protests against the government.
