Black is Back Coalition in London demands “Victory to Syria; Stop imperialist wars in Africa!”

What: Public Meeting
When: Saturday 14 September 2013 at 7pm
Where: 365 Brixton Road, Brixton, London SW9 7DA
The Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations (BIB) in London, UK invites all progressively minded people to a public meeting on Saturday 15 September at 7pm regarding the current situation in Syria. Attendees will discuss proposed actions in opposition to the U.S. drive towards another war in the Middle East.
The program will include a panel discussion of political activists including Luwezi Kinshasa, Secretary General of the African Socialist International; Duale Yusuf, a Somali national social justice activist; Ambrose, author on the ‘Rising Continent’ Blog; Ade Banjoko of the All African People's Revolutionary Party; and Amaru Pachacutec from the Tawantinsuyu Nation, reporting on the war that is wrecking Colombia.
The Black is Back Coalition's effort here in London is part of an international campaign to mobilize the worldwide African liberation movement into active opposition to all imperialist wars against Africa and Africans and all other oppressed peoples of the world, including in Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen.
According to the Coalition, the U.S., Britain, France and imperialism in general are incapable of peaceful existence with oppressed peoples, imposing only war and threats of war against the oppressed peoples. 
They compare the Obama regime’s unproven accusations that Syria’s government and its leader Bashir al Assad used chemical weapons against the people of Syria with the lies about WMDs in Iraq that were used by the Bush regime to initiate war against the Iraqi people, resulting in more than one million Iraqis murdered by U.S.-led military and an ongoing occupation of Iraq by U.S. troops.
The Saturday meeting will also examine the unreported U.S.-funded wars against the people of Congo, Somalia, Colombia, Haiti and the militarization of Rwanda as a tool of U.S. foreign policy in Africa and around the world, where millions have been killed and subjugated to military assault.
Event organizers report that, “While the vast majority of oppressor nations including the UK, are opposed to Obama’s call to strike Syria, there is no genuine white anti-war movement in those countries, fighting for unconditional support to the struggles of the colonised peoples of the world. It falls on the oppressed African community and other colonized peoples in the UK to build an active movement in opposition to all imperialist wars, which are by definition unjust wars.”
The Coalition declares its determination to speak out and express solidarity with Syria and all who are resisting the unreported imperialist wars throughout Africa.
Luwezi Kinshasa stated, “The world is increasingly being characterised by the growing participation of masses of oppressed peoples in the struggles to reclaim control over our own lives and future. We want to make the public aware that Barack Obama, the first U.S. African president, is responsible for an AFRICOM assault on an African country and the expansion of AFRICOM throughout most of the African continent.”
The meeting will take place on Saturday 14 September at 365 Brixton Road, London SW97DA. It is free and open to the public.
