Attend the upcoming planning meeting for the Oakland Day in Solidarity with African People:

Friday, September 1st @ 6:30 pm at Akwaaba Hall at the Oakland Uhuru House, 7911 MacArthur Blvd in East Oakland, CA near Eastmont Mall. Accessible by the 57 bus which runs up MacArthur Blvd.

In autumn of 2017, groups of white people throughout the U.S. will go into white communities, knock on doors, hold events and fundraisers, and build a people’s movement to raise tens of thousands of dollars for the Black Liberation Movement. This campaign, coordinated by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, will culminate in the Oakland Day in Solidarity with African People happening October 5th, 2017.

Based on the understanding that every white person owes reparations to African people, USM will organize groups of white people throughout the country to hold events and fundraisers for the African People’s Socialist Party and its economic foundation, Black Star Industries, the basis of a liberated African economy.

It is historic that the African People’s Socialist Party has won white people to take this stand to return the stolen resources which are hoarded in our white communities to the African revolution, for the unification and liberation of African people everywhere.

The Days in Solidarity with African People campaign is a self-criticism from the white population for our brutal assault on Africa and African people which formed the foundations of capitalism. Slavery brought wealth to Europe for the first time in a thousand years, ending the system of feudalism and ultimately enabling all white people to climb the ladder to success, prosperity, democracy and the right to share in the stolen loot of African and Indigenous peoples.

The Days in Solidarity with African People lets us state to the world that we recognize that African people forcibly created life for us and wealth for us instead of for themselves and their people.

The DSAP campaign goes further in that we raise actual reparations to the organization that leads the movement of the African working class for the final liberation of Africa and African people.

How can we say we support and give solidarity to this struggle without actually being organized under the leadership of the African Liberation Movement to raise resources as reparations?

Solidarity with African people lets us join humanity, take responsibility for the crimes of white people and white power and be part of a new world, led by African, Indigenous and other colonized peoples, a world of true peace and equity and socialism in which no one people can ever live at the expense of another.

It is clear that political and economic crisis is the trend in the US and around the world. We cannot leave this deplorable situation to the next generation.

We cannot expect our children to grow up in a world where their dreams and aspirations come at the expense of thousands of Mike Browns, Freddie Greys, and Sandra Blands being slaughtered  by cops.

It must change—and it IS changing, because the resistance of African people and oppressed people is shaking the foundation of this system. This system built on suffering will come down by the hands of oppressed people. We will see a new world.
But we have to do our part.

Join the Campaign for the Oakland Day in Solidarity with African People with the theme Unity Through Reparations to African People!

Attend the upcoming planning meeting:

Friday, September 1st @ 6:30 pm at Akwaaba Hall at the Oakland Uhuru House, 7911 MacArthur Blvd in East Oakland, CA near Eastmont Mall. Accessible by the 57 bus which runs up MacArthur Blvd.
