Come to the meeting of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement to kick off the campaign entitled Building Self-Determination in the Crisis of Imperialism: A Day in Solidarity with African People.
With last week's brutal murder by the San Francisco police of 19 year old African Kenneth Wade Harding, who was shot and left to die in the middle of the African community and the overall escalating police violence, it is so important that allies of the black community stand up against injustice and break our complicity with the war on the African community.
This campaign involves a pledge drive and political fundraising for reparations from the white community in support of the African community programs for self-determination of the Uhuru Movement and all power to the African community and will culminate in an event in Oakland on Saturday, September 17th.
The Uhuru Movement is leading the worldwide movement for self determination in the African Community, creating programs for self sufficiency. As the economic crisis of imperialism deepens the African community bares the brunt of the unemployment, foreclosures and massive imprisonment and police violence. While the bankers and ruling class line their own pockets with tax payer money, the government is ending all services. The people have completely lost confidence in the government to solve any of their problems and the African community is building programs to solve these problems themselves.
