A Call to White People:
Stand in Solidarity with the Movement for African Liberation
Thousands of African People are being made homeless by Hurricane Katrina. Thousands more will suffer from the criminal neglect of the US government which stood by and refused to strengthen the levees to stop the flooding, knowing that the only people left in the city would be tens of thousands of African people living in the low-lying areas. Currently, African working class and poor people are virtual prisoners, surrounded by National Guard with SWAT teams sent into the city with "shoot to kill" orders.
This upheaval for the African community is nothing new. From its support for the massacres in Haiti to the famine in Niger and the genocide in the Congo, the US has made it clear that African people are expendible. We call on the white community to stand for justice and reparations for the African community.
