Take the Pledge of Solidarity with African People! -Dianne’s Reparations Pledge
I’m raising $1000 in reparations to African people as part of the campaign for Days in Solidarity with African People, happening across the U.S. this fall.
Help me meet my goal!
The money raised goes directly to the programs of the African Peoples’ Socialist Party (APSP), the leading force building the African Liberation Movement in the U.S. and around the world.
I am sickened by the recent police murder of Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager, in Ferguson, Missouri. They shot him six times in the head and left his body to rot in the street for hours.
This is nothing new. An African person is murdered by police and white vigilante violence every 26 hours in this country.
The murders of Michael Brown, Oscar Grant, Trayvon Martin, Renisha McBride and so many others, are rooted in this country’s history of genocide and slavery.
As a white person in the United States, that history is the pedestal of my existence. White people live on a pedestal of the oppression of African people, whose stolen continent and labor have built the wealth of the U.S. and Europe for the past 500 years.
Reparations are owed for centuries of oppression and theft of resources, and we cannot wait for the ruling class of the U.S. and other Western imperialist countries to pay up voluntarily.
I am sick and tired of it and I want to see an immediate end to U.S. imperialist wars and colonial violence, here and around the world.
That’s why I’m building a movement for reparations to African people.
White people can break away from our own ruling class and join the people of the world in tearing down this rotten, vicious system and building a world of peace and justice under the leadership of the oppressed.
Justice and peace can only come through reparations.
If you too find life on the backs of oppressed peoples intolerable and are outraged by the police murders and all the violence and oppression heaped on African people, there’s a way to turn your anger into action.
