Hurricane Harvey and the Ongoing Genocide of African People

September 20, 2017 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement is hosting its September webinar- live from our Facebook page- on Wednesday the 20th, 8-930 pm EST / 5-630 pm PST entitled “Hurricane Harvey and the Ongoing Genocide of African People”

This webinar will expose the role of the colonial State in making Hurricanes Harvey and Irma into deadly disasters for poor and working class African and colonized people. With African Internationalism– the revolutionary theory of the African poor and working class, we can understand that what is happening in Texas with Harvey, and in Florida and the Caribbean with Irma, is a genocide that is committed against African people at the hands of the State on a daily basis.

The All African People’s Development & Empowerment Project’s Black Ankh initiative is organizing to not only coordinate disaster relief, but also to forward self-reliance and self-determination for Africans and oppressed people everywhere.

Featured speakers are Kalambayi Andenet, International President of the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM), and Nyabinghi Fungisai, the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement .
President Kalambayi is also member of the National Central Committee of the African People’s Socialist Party, and a courageous African woman and mother, who stood on the front lines of Ferguson during the rebellion in 2014 after the murder of Mike Brown. 
Nyabinghi is a leader in the Houston branch of the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement and played a key role in organizing support for her Houston comrades whose houses were flooding from Hurricane Harvey while the State did nothing.

There will be a Q&A with the speakers after their presentations!
