Hear the dynamic leader of the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations, Omali Yeshitela.

Yeshitela is the leader and founder of the Uhuru Movement and the African Socialist International and will speak on Obama’s continuation of imperialist wars, how Obama has taken advantage of the earthquake in Haiti to reinforce occupation of that country, and the struggle of African people inside the U.S. to challenge police occupation and violence, massive imprisonment, foreclosures and poverty.

Also featured will be Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People's Solidarity Committee and author of Overturning the Culture of Violence addressing the role of solidarity with the African liberation movement connecting the black community here with the people of Haiti and African people everywhere.

Find out how you can participate in the Africa’s Resources in African Hands Solidarity Action Network to raise resources for real self-determination programs of the Uhuru Movement, building a new world.

A march will also take place prior to this event on Saturday, March 20th in San Francisco under the banner of victory to the oppressed! Come join us promote victory to the Iraqi, Afghani, African and all oppressed peoples struggling for freedom, justice and a sustainable future and participate in other events throughout the week.
