The Uhuru Solidarity Movement calls on all of our members, supporters, and allies to make a donation by the end of July so we can reach the $1,000 reparations pledge to forward the programs of the Uhuru Movement. What can you contribute?
Any amount will make a difference!
Here’s why: The Uhuru Movement fights fearlessly for the rights of the African community and builds programs across the world through which African people
are struggling to reclaim control over their own lives, land, and resources.
As Chairman Omali Yeshitela, the founder of the Uhuru Movement, explains “The rate of exploitation of Africans has been greater since slavery….The situation of Africans [in the US today] reeks of the ongoing national oppression of African people. This oppression continues just as starkly under the Obama regime as under previous US regimes…”
Penny Hess, Chairwoman of the African People’s Solidarity Committee, in Overturning the Culture of Violence wrote: “The conditions in the prisons are unspeakably brutal and genocidal. African men are caged like animals in the prime of their youth, bursting with energy and the desire to experience life, raise a family, express their talents. Many of these young people have been held in the camps since their teens and are sentenced to be there until they die…. They are institutions of genocide.”
Many of us in the white community are looking for ways to genuinely make a difference and contribute to changing the conditions faced by African people
Our work as Uhuru Solidarity Movement under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party is to win support from the white community and reparations as the only way to move forward on the road to a future without oppression, violence, torture, colonialism, environmental destruction, and war.
Black Star Industries, the economic wing of the African People’s Socialist Party, is a concrete program that is paving the way toward a future for African people and all of humanity freed from oppression, poverty and colonialism.
White people have to be a part of that future. It is in our interest to join this movement that is emerging all over the world.
You can do this by donating, joining and continuing to support the Uhuru Solidarity Movement to build reparations. All of it goes towards the programs of the Uhuru Movement.
Johann, National Literature Distribution Chair, made a donation this month and added with it this statement:
“I take a stand for reparations because I recognize the right of Palestinians, Mexicans, Indigenous, and African people to resist colonial occupation by any means necessary. As white people, in our bubble of peace, we create the most horrendous violence aimed relentlessly at the oppressed. We can no longer opportunistically pretend we do not hear the screams of a mother holding a dying child, shot down by an Israeli bullet, or close our eyes when an African father is suffocated to death by the NYPD. I am part of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement because it is an opportunity to stand on the right side of humanity as the future unfolds. The Uhuru Movement is building real programs of genuine economic development for the African community. Community gardens, childcare collectives, community centers, and a whole independent economy for Africans through Black Star Industries…I can see how the Uhuru Movement is leading African Liberation. I can be proud I take this pledge of solidarity with the liberation of oppressed peoples because I refuse to ignore my humanity.”
Support reparations to African people, join the Uhuru Solidarity Movement and donate toward the programs of the Uhuru Movement today! We can reach our pledge goal this month with your contribution!
