Title: A Day in Solidarity with African People - Oakland
START DATE: Saturday October 06
TIME: 2:30 PM - 2:30 PM
Location Details:
Niebyl Proctor Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave near Alcatraz Ave, Oakland
Event Type: Teach-In
On October 6, 2012, USM St Oakland will host our "Day in Solidarity with African People" event as part of a nationwide series of events being held in St. Petersburg, Florida, Philadelphia, San Diego, and other cities across the US! Find out how you can get involved in DSAP at uhurusolidarity.org

The reality is that an African child born in West Oakland will live 15 years less than a white child born in the Oakland Hills and that every 36 hours an African is killed by the police in the U.S.

To make the necessary change, African people must have power over their lives and their communities, and we can all have a part in supporting that struggle.

What can you do?
- Host an event, fundraiser or benefit. Can you raise $100, $200, $500 by winning support in your community?
- Attend the local DSAP organizing committee meeting - every Thursday through October 4th, 7 pm at the Niebyl Proctor Library.
- Tune in every Sunday at 1 pm EST to the “Reparations in Action” online radio show on uhurunews.com.

Build for justice and reparations for the African community, help to build a Day in Solidarity for African People!

Don't miss this opportunity to see keynote speaker and international revolutionary leader, CHAIRMAN OMALI YESHITELA, the leader and founder of the Uhuru Movement, and PENNY HESS, the Chair of the African People's Solidarity Committee and the author of "Overturning the Culture of Violence"!

The DSAP is the international campaign of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement and the African People’s Solidarity Committee for white people and other allies of African liberation to show their commitment in standing in solidarity with Africans and other oppressed peoples around the world. It is this day that we participate in reparations and supporting the programs of the Uhuru Movement for economic development and self-determination.

A central feature of the “Days in Solidarity with African People” campaign are the events. They are a unique opportunity for we in the white community to hear from the leaders of the African liberation movement. It is also an opportunity for us to closely examine the true history of the relationship between white people and African people as well as white people and the rest of the world.
