There is no peace: Africa and Africans are at war! U.S. to the world: “Comply or die!”
August 11, 2018 - August 12, 2018 Free
On August 11 and 12, hundreds of black people from throughout the U.S. will gather in St. Louis, Missouri for the Annual Conference of the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations (BIBC).
The theme of the Conference is: “There is no peace: Africa and Africans are at war! … U.S. to the world: ‘Comply or Die!’”
This theme recognizes the unrelenting war that is being made by the U.S. government against black people – on the continent of Africa and throughout the U.S. — in every aspect of our lives.
Like other oppressed and colonized peoples of the world the Black is Back Coalition also demands self-determination for black people in the U.S.
Join the Coalition in opposing the secret U.S. wars in Africa and the growing attacks on black people and others in the U.S. This includes the brutal massive incarceration in the U.S. colonial concentration camps that hold at least one million black people behind bars on any given day of the year.
Our children are victims of mental murder in the schools that our community must fight to control. We must also fight to prevent the privatization of the public school system that was mostly created by black people following the end of legal slavery in the U.S.
Even the capitalist health industry functions as an arm of oppression of black people and we denounce the growing privatization of healthcare, a human right within a just social system.
The Black is Back Coalition calls on all our people to join us in rejecting the closure of public schools in predominantly black communities in the U.S. The shutting of 54 schools in Chicago alone is evidence of just how serious this issue is for our future that is already threatened on almost every front.
The Black is Back Coalition is the most prominent organization in the U.S. that is fighting for black community control of the murderous police that continues to kill our people daily under the flimsiest of excuses.
Join our Coalition as part of the broadest black multi-organizational demand for reparations to our people for the centuries of forced labor, terror and brutal exploitation that we continue to experience even today.
Our Annual Conference will demand the release of those courageous men and women locked down in prisons today because of their courage in standing up for black freedom from the 1960s up to now when we are currently protesting our treatment on a variety of fronts.
The Black is Back Conference is also demanding the removal of all U.S. and other colonial military forces in Africa, our Motherland.
Right now there are thousands of such U.S. Special Ops military forces actively fighting secret wars against black people in order to maintain a stranglehold on Africa’s vast resources to the detriment of the development of our people in Africa.
The cutback on the social services won by our movement in the 1950s and 1960s is another front of the war being waged against our people.
Our very lives are at risk during these perilous times when imperialist white power is in a state of desperate decline. The Annual National Black is Back Coalition Conference gives us an opportunity to come together, organize and mount a united fight back against this concerted war being waged against our people in the U.S. and throughout the world.
This is our call to you to join with your brothers and sisters who will be gathering in St. Louis for our Annual National Conference on August 11 and 12, 2018.
Black is Back!
We will win!
We are winning!
