Black Is Back Coalition – mobilization in NYC – August 17th & 18th – From Trayvon to Stop and Frisk! From COINTELPRO to black misleadership! Resist the U.S. govt. war on the African people!



The Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations is calling on Africans and all our allies and supporters to join with our August 17-18, 2013 national mobilization and conference in Harlem, New York, against police and other U.S. State assaults against the rights and dignity of our community and all the people of the U.S. and the world.

These State assaults include the recent decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the Voting Rights Act that protected the democratic right of Africans to participate in the U.S. electoral process. This was protection made necessary by a hundred-year-long history of terror and murder of Africans who attempted to vote.

They also include court exoneration of George Zimmerman for the blatant murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The exoneration of Zimmerman exposed the fact that in Killing Trayvon Zimmerman functioned as an arm of the U.S. State that achieved its definition as protector of the colonial relationship imposed on Africans, Mexicans and the indigenous population since slavery in the U.S.

On August 17 and 18, the anniversary of the birth of Marcus Garvey, the preeminent anti-imperialist leader of the early 20th century, the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations will host a national conference and mobilization to explore and organize resistance to every aspect of the efforts being used to maintain the status quo of poverty and oppression for the majority of the world’s peoples.

This includes the 80 percent of the Earth’s population forced to exist on $10 or less a day, the indigenous of the U.S. stuffed in concentrations camps called “Indian reservations,” and those occupying lands of the U.S. Southwest stolen from Mexico and forced to wear the appellation of “Illegal aliens” and “Mexican Americans.”

This includes the Africans struggling to survive in the sweltering domestic colonies of the U.S., Europe and the world, deprived of health, work, education, culture, dignity and promise of a future for our children that rewards us for our labors and suffering.

We are a coalition of organizations, institutions and individuals representing the broad and diverse forces within the international anti-imperialist African community.

We are Christians, Muslims, traditionalists and non-religious; we are democrats, socialists, Pan Africanists, African Internationalists and others.

We are young and old, men and women, committed to social justice, peace and reparations.

We are opposed to imperialism, oppression and exploitation of any nature and we are convinced that peace can only come about as a consequence of real, all-inclusive social justice and reparations to Africans damaged by colonial slavery and our ongoing relationship to imperial white power even when disguised in the form of neo-colonialism or black face.

We welcome the recent revelations of National Security Agency (NSA) intrusion into the privacy and security of millions of people within the U.S. and billions worldwide.  These revelations have shattered the carefully manufactured illusion of American democracy and raised to the surface the dictatorial nature of the U.S. North American State.

The recent NSA revelations put into perspective the unremitting invasion of the U.S. government into every aspect of the lives of Africans and the oppressed within the U.S. and the world.

It helps all to understand the short distance between the police Stop-and-Frisk policies that result in millions of arbitrary searches of African and Latino men throughout the streets of every major U.S. city and the spy and killer drones sweeping the skies of Pakistan, East Africa, the U.S. -Mexican border and oppressed communities within the U.S. itself.

It helps all to understand the consequence of turning a blind eye to surveillance by Internet hip hop police regularly targeting young Africans throughout the U.S. and terroristic social worker welfare thugs that invade the privacy of women and children made poor and insecure by internal colonial domination.

Now everyone should recognize that the only difference in the perennial intrusion of immigration police into our lives on a daily basis throughout the world and the NSA surveillance recently divulged is the level of technology employed by the NSA and even that technology gap is diminishing daily.

We recognize this privacy and security invasion by the U.S. and other imperialist states throughout Europe represent the fragility of a social system beset by crisis responding to the relentless drive of the oppressed of the world to change our relationship to imperial white power.

We are calling on all to join us in this determination to resist. We are organizing and we will win!
Build the Black is Back Coalition Conference to oppose all forms and expressions of U.S. and imperialist State surveillance and oppression!
Forward to August 17 and 18!
