    A number of Jamaican Rastafarians are seeking to walk
    in the footsteps of Trinidadian Fitzgerald Hinds, who
    created history in 1995 when he became the first
    Rastafarian parliamentarian in the Caribbean and the
    world.

    Traditionally, members of the Rastafari Community do
    not participate in the electoral process. But come
    tomorrow, no less than ten Rastafarian candidates will
    be seeking a seat in Parliament - the most since the
    late Ras Sam Brown broke the tradition in 1962.
