Event Type Other
Organizer/AuthorUhuru Solidarity Movement Oakland
We are looking for people to join the committee to build the campaign for A Day in Solidarity with African People and the event in Oakland that will host the leadership of the Uhuru Movement.

This year's theme for A Day in Solidarity with African People is African Resistance, Reparations and the Struggle for Self-determination.

It is national campaign for solidarity with justice, liberation and self-determination for African people everywhere.

As we see with the rebellions in London sparked by the police murder of another African man, African community in the UK as in the US is bearing the brunt of the economic crisis -
with an ever-widening income gap, massive unemployment and
escalating police violence. It's time to take the pledge of solidarity and make a commitment to reparations to the African community.

The system isn't going to solve the problems it has created for the African community.
We support the Uhuru Movement in building African self-reliance programs including:

Economic development institutions to create community commerce
Community gardens to provide access to healthy food
Freedom schools that offer community-based, meaningful curriculum
Independent media like Uhuru News, Uhuru Radio and The Burning Spear Newspaper
