Boston – All Diamonds Are Blood Diamonds!

February 23 @ 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Join the Uhuru Solidarity Movement as we kick off this national speaking tour “All Diamonds are Blood Diamonds” in Boston on February 23rd!

Presentations will include an in-depth history of the diamond trade, it’s origins in Europe’s colonization of Africa, and the current parasitic relationship that imperialist jewelry & tech industries have with the colonized peoples of the world.

Learn more about why this campaign is so urgent by reading the January 2019 article “All diamonds are blood diamonds: There is no diamond not covered with the blood of African people!” by Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People’s Solidarity Committee: http://www.theburningspear.com/2019/01/All-diamonds-are-blood-diamonds-There-is-no-diamond-not-covered-with-the-blood-of-African-people
