On March 25, 2012, Omali Yeshitela, Chairman of the African Socialist International, spoke on the murder of Trayvon Martin, the historical basis for his murder, and the revolutionary struggle for Black Power that is the only solution to stop these kind of attacks. The presentation was made to a community meeting at the Uhuru House in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Chairman Omali is the founder and leader of the African People’s Socialist Party which leads the Uhuru Movement. The Uhuru Solidarity Movement is the organization of white people and other allies of the African community working under the leadership of the APSP to build programs for political and material solidarity with the African Revolution.
This Saturday, March 31, meet at the Uhuru House, 1245 18th St at 11AM, and join the march to City Hall to demand justice for Trayvon Martin!
We will demand reparations to the family of Trayvon Martin, 17-year-old African who was murdered in cold blood by a white nationalist vigilante thug by the name of George Zimmerman, who has yet to be arrested. This modern day lynching represents another example of the state-sanctioned violence against the black community that has been going on for centuries.
This march, coordinated and led by the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement, will be different from many other marches held around the country in the sense that it is not only about seeking justice for Trayvon as an individual case but as part of the overall struggle of African people to organize for self-determination! This struggle is bigger than just George Zimmerman; it’s about getting self-determination and freedom for African people.
