May 22-24 Washington, DC and U.K. African Liberation Day events 
demand return of African homeland and natural resources

This weekend Africans from across the U.S. and Canada will converge on Washington, DC while Africans across Europe gather in Manchester, England for simultaneous conferences recognizing African Liberation Day with the theme, “One Africa, One Nation: Separated by Colonial Slavery, Reunited by Revolutionary Resistance!”

>> Register for African Liberation Day in Washington, DC

>> Listen to the LIVE broadcast of the conference on Uhuru Radio

The events, organized by the Uhuru (Freedom) Movement, are part of a series of conferences held in Sierra Leone, Kenya, England and the U.S., to establish the African Socialist International (ASI), a worldwide party uniting African workers to liberate African land and resources for the benefit of African people everywhere.

The organization’s North American “Revolutionary National Democratic Program” (RNDP) to unite broad sectors of the African community to end U.S. colonial oppression of African people calls for:

  • A land base within U.S. borders upon which to establish an independent African government, in democratic, anti-colonial unity with the indigenous peoples of the U.S.
  • The right to return and reparations for all Africans who lost or were forced to leave their homes at the time of Hurricane Katrina.
  • Reparations for and/or reinstatement of homes to the thousands of African people who lost their homes to foreclosure stemming from the U.S. government-supported subprime mortgage scam that targeted Africans and Mexicans as primary victims of capitalist financial institutions.
  • An end to the public policy of police containment of African people within the U.S. and its replacement with a public policy of economic development.
  • The immediate release of all conscious African political prisoners, including those who were arrested because of political actions or statements, or who were first arrested for violations of colonial laws, and subsequently became politically active in the cause of African liberation.
