Our people proclaim that there are serious problems that exist within our communities and nations that if left unaddressed will continue to plague Black people all over the world. While America bombs Libya our condition is deteriorating at home and is left largely ignored. Africa and the problems in our Motherland are blatantly ignored by the world, the U.S. Government and even us.
“The National Day of Action and Unity” will bring to attention the plight of so many who are uneducated, exploited, behind prison walls, disunited , in poor health, homeless, victims of police brutality, pimped by crooked politicians, tortured, falsely accused, under developed, morally perverse, apathetic, addicted to drugs and alcohol, victims of harsh budget cuts and genocide. Special attention will be given to victims of neo-colonialism, corrupt governments, imperialism, Zionism, capitalism and inadequate concern for the Diaspora of Africa. The injustice of Oscar Grant and the plight of political prisoners and the wrongfully accused from Black and indigenous nations will be a key rallying point. Please read enclosed complete April 23rd Day of Action and Unity Mission Statement.”
THE DAY OF ACTION AND UNITY ORGANIZERS ARE ALSO CALLING FOR A BUY BLACK ONLY CAMPAIGN AND A BOYCOTT OF ALL NON-BLACK BUSINESSES FOR THE WEEKEND OF APRIL 23RD.
To the Authorities, don’t worry about who is organizing it. This is organized by the people and for the people. This is organized by a new younger leadership un-approved by our former slave or colonial master. We are grassroots activists, youths, residents, union members, community residents, spiritual people, revolutionaries and freedom fighters who have decided to take a stand together April 23rd. The call of Dr. Malik Zulu Shabazz has resonated with the disillusioned all over the earth.
Historically knowing the odds against we have no choice but to take action in a manner. Our position on this is to remain silent, stagnant and on the sidelines is no longer an option.
