Nov. 1 "Black is Back" march on the White House gains momentum

The list of endorsers and participants for the November 1 and 2 “Peace through Revolution” mobilization sponsored by the Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations (BIBC) continues to grow daily.
 
The “Peace through Revolution” mobilization will consist of a rally and march on the White House on November 1, beginning at Malcolm X Park at 2400 15th St. NW at 12 pm.
 
On November 2, participants will gather at Howard University Blackburn Center for a teach-in designed to provide black and other activists with information to assist in organizational efforts throughout the U.S.
 
The growth of the list of endorsers and participants is a reflection of the escalation of U.S.-led and engineered war in the Middle East, especially Iraq, Afghanistan and Palestine, according to BIBC Chair Omali Yeshitela.
 
Under the banner of “Peace through Revolution,” speakers at the Malcolm X Park pre-march rally include former New York City Councilman Charles Barron, Glen Ford of Black Agenda Report, Pam Africa from the MOVE organization and Omali Yeshitela, Chairman of the African Socialist International and the BIBC.
 
Endorsements of the BIBC-sponsored rally, march and teach-in come from a diverse array of organizations and individuals that include:
  • Hands Up Coalition — formed to provide support and organization to the resistance in Ferguson
  • Black Agenda Report — online source for news and analysis from the black left
  • ANSWER D.C. — the national coalition to Act Now and Stop War and End Racism
  • The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement — whose “Operation Ghetto Storm 2012 Annual Report” documented the U.S. killing of a black person every 28 hours by police, security guards and white vigilantes.
  • New Afrikan People’s Organization — a black independence organization seeking state power in the black belt south
  • International Action Center — an anti-war social justice organization founded by former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark
  • United Against Police Terror — San Diego, California-based organization engaged in citizen monitoring of police actions and community rights education
  • Friends of the Congo — an advocacy group working for peace and prosperity in the Congo
  • United National Antiwar Coalition — organized in 2010 to oppose U.S. foreign and domestic military aggression
  • African People’s Socialist Party — founded in 1972 to win liberation for African people worldwide
  • African People’s Solidarity Committee — founded in 1976 to build white solidarity with black power
  • Uhuru Solidarity Movement — organizing for reparations from the white community to the African liberation struggle
  • Kali Akuno — author and coordinator of special projects and external funding for the late mayor Chokwe Lumumba in Jackson, MS
  • Mutulu Olugbala — aka M-1 of Dead Prez hip-hop group
  • Rosa Clemente — black Puerto Rican hip-hop activist, journalist and former Green Party candidate for U.S. Vice President
  • Cornel West — author, frequent commentator on national TV and Ivy League professor
  • Kamm Howard — organizer with the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America
  • Amos N. Wilson Institute — established for studying and testing the theories of Dr. Amos N. Wilson
  • Cynthia McKinney — former Congresswoman from Georgia, activist and journalist
  • Pam Africa — spokeswoman for the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal
The Coalition also prides itself on representing the interests of African and other oppressed people within the U.S.—especially Indigenous people suffering on reservations and in barrios that function as internal colonies of the U.S.
 
Unlike much of the traditional peace or antiwar movement, the BIBC expresses solidarity with the resistance by oppressed peoples of the world against U.S. and European imperialism.
 
Members of the Coalition are also certain that there can be no real peace for the peoples of the U.S. or the world within the current social system. It is for this reason that the Coalition has raised the slogan: “Peace through Revolution!”
