Throughout the month of October, African People’s Solidarity Day events in
three different cities across the country will organize solidarity with African and oppressed peoples rising up to take control of the land and resources of Africa and demand payback for the wealth stolen from African people that created the U.S. economic system.

In the face of a deepening economic crisis, the African People’s Solidarity Committee and the Uhuru Solidarity Movement are white people that stand in solidarity with the African liberation movement and organize support for the Uhuru Movement campaigns and programs. With thousands of foreclosures, massive imprisonment and rampant police brutality, violence and poverty afflicting the African communities in the U.S., we recognize that the question is not racism, but that colonialism exists right here.

Through the march at Malcolm X Park in Washington D.C. planned for November 7th by the newly formed Black is Back Coalition, the African working class led Uhuru Movement is leading the struggle to oppose U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and to oppose the brutal wars against African and oppressed peoples right here in the U.S. Following the legacy of the Marcus Garvey Movement, Malcolm X and the Black Power Movement, the Uhuru Movement is building a movement for self-determination, justice and reparations to the African community.

African People’s Solidarity Day, an annual day of recognition, is a call for support and resources from the white community as an expression of unity with economic and social justice for the African community. (See

Keynote speaker Omali Yeshitela, Chairman of the African Socialist International (ASI) will summarize the current world situation, comparing U.S. military and economic intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan with domestic counterinsurgency programs and discussing the Uhuru Movement’s strategy for achieving national liberation for African people worldwide.

Author and African People’s Solidarity Committee Chairwoman Penny Hess, whose multi-media presentation will detail the effects of U.S. economic and military policy on colonized African communities, declares, “We don’t want to see America’s economic crisis resolved at the expense of African people once again. This is a time of great opportunity to support sustainable solutions being put forward by the victims of the current system, who are rising up to define their own agenda and determine their own destiny.”

At events in St. Petersburg, Florida and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Chioma Oruh, Chairwoman, of the ASI’s North American Region, and a nationally recognized expert on AFRICOM will explain the mission of AFRICOM and the response of African leaders to it. Chioma Oruh resides in Washington, D.C. where she is pursuing a PhD in African Studies at Howard University. 

African People’s Solidarity Day is a benefit for the African Village Survival Initiative (AVSI).  The AVSI is the joint effort of the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project ( and the African People’s Education & Defense Fund (, to create community-led, self-sustaining economic institutions such as rain water harvesting, community agriculture and healthcare for the African community as a collective response to the global economic crisis.  A local project of the AVSI is to outfit the Uhuru House in south St. Petersburg, with a recording studio as an institution of international African culture and a commercial kitchen for community based economic development projects.
