Uhuru Solidarity at Occupy St Pete

Members of Uhuru Solidarity Movement have participated for the past 3 weeks in the Occupy St Pete General Assembly gatherings.

As part of the Occupy St Pete General Assembly, we have struggled to raise up the demand for reparations from Wall St and the US government to African and Indigenous peoples and to stand in solidarity with the African community inside the US and around the world.

We have met several friendly and supportive people at our outreach table where we have called on other North Americans to take a principled stand in solidarity with the African community's struggle for economic development and self-determination.

The General Assembly meeting on October 22 culminated with a march on Downtown St Pete. We led several of the chants during this march, including "Occupy Wall St, Not the Middle East" and "Down with Wall St! Reparations Now!"

If you stand against Wall St and US imperialism, join Uhuru Solidarity Movement and take the pledge of solidarity with African people with a minimum 10 dollar contribution towards the work of the Uhuru Movement for African liberation and self-determination.
