- – The opportunity to express solidarity with the right of African and oppressed peoples to the land and resources of Africa and to payback for the all wealth stolen from African people, economic development and social justice for the African community!
African People’s Solidarity Day – the event to kick off this time of genuine transformation in the world!
Also in October, the African People’s Socialist Party will put a branch of the organization on the ground in Sierra Leone, Africa. The Uhuru Movement in Africa means African people can organize in their own interests!
Then, on November 7th, the newly formed “Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations” led by members of the Uhuru Movement and the NAACP, MOVE, the Green Party, Black Agenda Report and many other grassroots organizations will march on Washington D.C. to oppose U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and to oppose the brutal wars against African and oppressed peoples right here in the U.S.
The African People’s Solidarity Committee and the Uhuru Solidarity Movement are sponsoring this event. We are white people that stand in solidarity with the African liberation movement and organize support for the campaigns and programs of the Uhuru Movement.
Keynote Speaker: Omali Yeshitela, Chairman of the African Socialist International, providing a summary of the current world situation, comparing U.S. military and economic intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan with domestic counterinsurgency programs and discussing the Uhuru Movement’s strategy for national liberation for African people worldwide.
