We will begin the meeting with a study from
Overturning the Culture of Violence by Penny Hess of the African People's Solidarity Committee looking at the origin of the wealth of the white/European world and the way forward for peace and justice on the planet.
After that, we will lay out the work - and break into outreach teams - to build the events for A Day in Solidarity with African People and the Uhuru Foods event - World Hunger: Made the US on October 13th and 15th.
Our event for A Day in Solidarity with African People will be taking place on Thursday, October 13th at the Humanist Hall in Oakland (390 - 27th St) featuring Omali Yeshitela, leader and founder of the Uhuru Movement, Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People's Solidarity Committee and Cephus "Uncle Bobby" Johnson of the Oscar Grant Foundation (Oscar Grant's uncle).
Come participate in this campaign taking place from now until November and be a part of our outreach and fundraising teams.
We will have an event in Oakland but YOU can build an event anywhere - in San Francisco, Santa Cruz, Sacramento, Eugene, Seattle, Southern California, etc.
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 that are in the interest of all of humanity:
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
