Buju Reaches Out to His Fans In His Hour Of Need

It has been a long, hard struggle for Buju Banton the last couple of years. Since December of 2009 he has been fighting a battle at trial that some say he was bound to lose even when the jury had his back. But Buju is trying to stay positive and push forward through the long stretch he has ahead of him until 2019, when he is set to be released. Just as the news broke that his sentencing on gun charges had been postponed, Buju decided to reach out to his friends and fans via the “Free Buju Now” Twitter Page and give them a little strength. Read Buju’s message below.

To those who stood with me through these trying times, who prayed with me, who wrote letters and called on my behalf, my family and I thank you so much. It has certainly not been an easy road but I will never give up the fight until I am once again reunited with my people and my family.”

Even then, that’s when the struggle begins, because I must continue fighting for those who I have met and seen their plight and how they are being ‘felonized’ by the government and disenfranchised and violated by the very laws that should be protecting their properties and persons…If you only knew, I pray that this great nation would regain consciousness and defend truth and rights like they should and stand united against a common enemy – injustice. Thanks again for your support.”

With all the positive thoughts that Buju is sending out, we can only wonder if he will receive that same type of energy back as his legal struggle continues.
