Make The Peter Tosh Memorial Garden A National Historic Landmark

This petition had 597 supporters

Peter Tosh exploded onto the world stage as an activist and solo artist with his 1976 release, Legalize It! Tosh worked to promote the legalization of marijuana, equal rights, and to expand Jamaica’s cultural and musical influence. His music served as a catalyst for a generation to fight for what they believed in. In 2013, the government honored Peter with a posthumous Order of Merit. Now, it's time for the government to continue honoring Peter by recognizing his resting place as a National Historic Landmark.

The Peter Tosh Memorial Garden is in the town of Belmont, in the Parish of Westmoreland, along Jamaica's beautiful, Southern coast. It is at the site of the home where Peter grew up. Having the site registered as a National Historic Landmark will help protect this historic and cultural site for future generations, and amplify Peter's important message.
