Leaders Urged Support Of Libya Delegation & March In NY, July 24, 2011

The World African Diaspora Union (WADU) and RHAW Pan African Ministers are urging faith leaders, congregations, organizations and leaders across the world to mark Pan African Sunday July 24, 2011 as an international day of “Prayer and Action” on behalf of African people in Africa and the African Diaspora, especially those in Libya, Ivory Coast, the Congo, Haiti and Somalia. Pan Africa Sunday marks the 111th anniversary of the formal launching of the modern Pan African Movement culminating in the African Union (AU) and is part of an African Diaspora campaign to support the reunion and sustainable development of African people.
In Atlanta, NYC and across the world, the public will participate in town-hall meetings, congregational and public forums with prominent leaders and members of the African Diaspora on the ongoing murderous bombing attack on Libya, Africa. In NY, a coalition of dozens of organizations will hold a massive March for Africa on August 13, 2011 to halt the war on Africa, mass incarceration and poverty of Black people, the stealing of African resources and the sabotaging of the AU to maintain white supremacy over Africa.
The international forums and mass rallies are to mobilize the American people and the world against the U.S.-British and French led NATO attack on Libya, rejected by the African leaders as a violation of Africa’s sovereignty. Second, it is also to press the AU and Black leaders to take decisive actions to protect African people after centuries of colonialism and slavery and to counter what is now confirmed by most as a plan for the “re-colonization” of Africa. Finally, the global actions are to urge Americans and Europeans to press their government to de-fund the war and use our limited resources to support economic justice, jobs, education and peace across the U.S. and the world.
Initiated by the RHAW at ITC, Pan Africa Sunday marks the formal launching of the Pan African Movement to halt the 1885 Berlin Conference plan for Europe’s unified invasion of Africa to further the enslavement and colonialism in Africa. The 1900 Pan African conference in England was supported by prominent African leaders such as Emperor Menelik 11 (Ethiopia), Bishop Henry McNeil Turner, Rev. Dr. Edward Blyden (Virgin Island), Benito Sylvain (Haiti), Sylvester Williams (Trinidad), Henry Cargill (Jamaica), Majola Agbebi (Nigeria), Tengo Jabavu (S. Africa), Booker T. Washington and Dr. WEB Dubois. Today, the Pan African Ministers are urging all faith leaders to invite African ambassadors, WADU and affiliated leaders, African activists and experts to discuss and act on critical Africa related issues with their congregations.
