Vybz Kartel's right to be freed from jail on bail. This issue is expected to be fiercely debated at an unprecedented global social media session on September 29. The date is significant as it represents one year since Adidja Palmer (Vybz Kartel) has been in a Jamaican lock up. The central theme for the discussion will be: "Is it right for a Jamaican citizen that has never been convicted of a crime to stay in jail without bail for more than a year?"
This will be hosted by Ghetto People Publishing which was just added to the Reading List for the Public Archive's Radical Black Books, with the release of Kartel's book, "Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto."
According to Chief Creative Officer Keecha Gooch, there will be sub-questions about the possibility of electronic monitoring for individuals on bail, whether or not artistes should be allowed to record while awaiting trial and overall comments on the justice system.
They were quick to state, "This is not a 'free werlboss' initiative, our company is about bringing issues concerning the Ghetto to the forefront, essentially giving a voice to the voiceless. We need to have intelligent debates about these issues and stop the practice of casting opposing opinions aside. Social Media will allow that to occur and do so in a big and meaningful way."
Interested parties are encouraged to check the web-site www.vybzkartelbook.com. Individuals can participate via twitter, facebook, blog, the chat room, text message, email or BB. There will be a four hour time slot from 4pm to 8pm on September 29th dedicated to the interactive segment.
The CEO of Ghetto People Publishing Michael Dawson declared: "The 'Voice of the Jamaican Ghetto' is a special book and the accolades attest to same. Our biggest challenge is to efficiently manage the market demand stretching from Zimbabwe to Australia, Rome to Rwanda, global prisons, army bases, schools etc. At the same time, we have to figure out which language next to publish in; we had thought it would be Dutch due to the large demand in Suriname but the demand in Francophone countries and France itself is surpassing every other country - though the Japanese may disagree", Dawson said with a chuckle. "It is just great to know that we took the risk of investing in a book that we know would be fought by so many but the content of the book is stronger than any opposition to its creation".
Dawson also said, "the road is not easy when representing Vybz Kartel, it means pressure, ridicule, rejection from all sectors of society but Kartel always says 'Man a anuh girl guide, man a souljah' so the war between us and Babylon has just began".
