AFRICANS UNITED to Host A Panel Discussion in Solidarity with the International Day of Action Against the Wars on Africa and African People.

‘AFRICANS UNITED’ will show solidarity with the International Day of Action Against the Wars on Africa and African People on Wednesday, August 17th by hosting a Panel Discussion on Yellow Elder Park from 7pm – 10pm. In case of rain, the event will take place at the Government High School Gym.

The International Day of Action is being called for by the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations that is headquartered in Washington, DC and is a response to the relentless imperialist aggressions against African people everywhere—in Africa and in places where Africans were forcibly dispersed throughout the world during the process of slavery and colonialism.

The intention of the Day is to raise the consciousness of Africans to the nature of the African struggle and the need to resist the common conditions of oppression and exploitation experienced by African people everywhere.

These “wars” include, for instance, imposed poverty and despair, police murders and mass incarceration, joblessness, anti-immigration terror, and high rates of maternal and infant mortality experienced by Africans globally.

In addition, these “wars” refer to the presence of AFRICOM and the host of other imperialist’s institutions that prop up neocolonialism in Africa; the brutality and starvation being inflicted on Africans in Haiti by the UN, functioning as an arm of U.S. policy; and the heinous bombing of Libya and the violent attempt to overthrow that government.

The International Day will also be used to challenge all the People who say that they are “for” peace and ask them to really open their eyes to the conditions that are imposed on African People. If they really are “for” peace they would support the just struggle of Africans for social justice, peace and reparations.

On August 17th presentations on these various “wars” will be made by representatives from the African People’s Socialist Party-Bahamas, the Organization of African Unity-Bahamas, the Qubtic Church of the Black Messiah, the Ethiopia Africa Black International Congress, and from Cecil Hall. There will also be performances by Jah Doctrine and Danyie’l Cinque. The event is open to the general public.

Africans United is a newly formed coalition established April 10, 2011 comprised of over 15 organizations and individuals from various political and ideological persuasions. It is guided by nine resolutions and its overall goal is to improve the living conditions of African People in The Bahamas and around the world. It is also committed to the total liberation of Africa and African People everywhere.
