On Wednesday, October 19, at 11:00 a.m., Uhuru Movement founder Omali Yeshitela, Black Agenda Report editor Glen Ford, MOVE member Pam Africa and other leaders of the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations will gather at Independence Hall to discuss the upcoming National March and Conference to “Stop the Wars and Build the Resistance”, set for November 5 in Philadelphia.

Organizer of the first black-led march in Washington, D.C. to criticize President Barack Obama’s foreign and domestic policies, the Black is Back Coalition is comprised of long-time black activists from the civil rights, Black Power, reparations and tenants’ rights movements.

November's March will express opposition to Obama's military aggression in Libya and throughout Africa, the Middle East and the Americas. Organizers are calling for an end to AFRICOM. They will also denounce Philadelphia Mayor Nutter's campaign of police containment of the black community, including the youth curfew and "Stop and Frisk" policies.

At Wednesday’s press conference Yeshitela, Ford and others will announce their plans for mass action to achieve these demands and will discuss the significance of the Occupy Wall Street movement and the upcoming Philadelphia mayoral elections.
