Press Release
9:00 am - 4:00 pm
General Assembly Morning Maker:
Panafricanism and the African Renaissance:

Welcome again. The AU ECOSOCC - Global Africa Diaspora Convention consists of insightful and inspiring moments. There are two General Assemblies with Morning Makers on November 20-21, 2015 followed by respective Plenary and Roundtable Sessions. For specifics, we have been spotlighting each session.  

"Africa must unite or perish" said President Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana on 25th May 1963 at the First Conference of African Independent States in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, when 31 Africa Heads of State signed the Charter of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) which main objective was to rid Africa from colonial domination. The OAU Charter of 1963 envisaged to "harness the natural and human resources of our continent to the total advancement of our peoples in all spheres of human endeavour."
Africa enjoys its total liberation and its unity, enjoys an unprecedented economic rise, enjoys more and more democracy and good governance, peace and stability just to mention a few achievements. 
Fifty years, after the First Conference of African Independents States, on 25th May 2013, Africa celebrated the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). The celebration of the Golden Jubilee will be the occasion to pay tribute to the Founders of African Unity and to the Fighters who liberated Africa from the yoke of colonialism. It will constitute an unprecedented opportunity to take stock of 50 years of achievements while paving the way for the next 50 years. 
The AU  theme adopted for the celebration of the Golden Jubilee of the OAU-AU was "Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance," designed  only to praise the achievements gained from our unity and solidarity, the values that underpin pan Africanism, but will also provide Africa with a chance for renaissance and outline its vision and mission for 2063.  Within this year of celebration, sons and daughters from within and outside Africa are called to bring closer to reality the Vision of the AU for "an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in global arena".
It stated "let's celebrate together African Renaissance for One Africa in prosperity and peace. "

Friends of the African Union

Friends of the African Union (FAU)is an economic, social, humanitarian, charitable, educational and new media civil-society ruling body founded to work for the benefit of the African Union and the African diaspora in their host countries.

Friends of the African Union Chamber of Commerce (FAU Chamber) is the first 21st century economic and business development African civil-society ruling body who is also a economic, business incubation, social, humanitarian, charitable, and educational non governmental organization.  It was founded in 2013 to be the business service bureau to the African Union and its member businesses with a focus on the 6th Region.

In 2005, the African Union defined the African Diaspora (AU) as “... peoples of African descent and heritage living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship, and who remain committed to  contribute to the  development of the continent and the building of the African Union.”  In 2012 The AU expanded its membership to those who do not live in its established 5 regions to a 6th region.

As a result of the broader definition of inclusion by the AU, the African Diaspora within the United States is larger in population size than the racial and ethnic definitions used by the U.S. Census Bureau. Based on the broader definition of the AU, the African Diaspora population residing within the United States exceeds a market of 55 million people. Forty million of these people come from ancestors who where slaves in the USA. This the focus of our efforts in 2015 along with high worth Africans worldwide.

The AU designated in 2013 African Diasporan organizations and individuals to review its 50 year plan.
Friends of the African Union was asked by the African Union in August 2013 to the First African Union Consultation Meeting with the Diaspora on the African Union Agenda 2063 - New York, United States of America Oct. 8th through the 10th 2013.

This then authorized us as an African American non governmental Ohio unincorporated association to comment on the plan and we did so and at the same time told them of what we had as a plan for the USA a $1.25 Trillion Dollar Quantitative Easing based solution to poverty for Americans. This plan had 7 periods and was to last till 2063. In that plan the Friends of the African Union (FAU) had taken upon itself to organize a Secretariat in North America for a new African Regional Economic Community - one that would include the USA, Bermuda, Mexico and Canada. The plan was to have it join by 2016 the already established and African Union recognized 8 Regional Economic Communities already in existence.

The Friends of the African Union joined with the New Future Foundation on Sept. 15th 2014 submitted the facts of the Mike Brown case, known then, as an example, to the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and US State Dept. of possible police misconduct, in line with the deadline for such a submission in regards to The Universal Periodic Review of the USA in 2015. It is our intention to give the Office of the High Commissioner the entire grand jury report and our comments.

The Universal Periodic Review "has great potential to promote and protect human rights in the darkest corners of the world.” – Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General

The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a unique process which involves a review of the human rights records of all UN Member States. The UPR is a State-driven process, under the auspices of the Human Rights Council, which provides the opportunity for each State to declare what actions they have taken to improve the human rights situations in their countries and to fulfill their human rights obligations. As one of the main features of the Council, the UPR is designed to ensure equal treatment for every country when their human rights situations are assessed.

The ten areas to be commented on that we will ask for our peoples help on these subject headings detailed by the US State Dept. in response to the UPR

(1) civil rights, ethnic, and racial discrimination;
(2) criminal justice issues;
(3) indigenous issues;
4) national security;
(6) labor and trafficking;
(7) economic, social and cultural rights and measures;
(8) the environment;
(9)domestic implementation of human rights, and;
(10)treaties and international human rights mechanisms.

Trough the UPR we will support the creation of an African American Diaspora Holding Company & Investment Trust who will start operations by creating a financial solution in response to the damage caused as assessed by our NFF/FAU Universal Periodic Review Town Hall Hearings (Town Hall Meetings). Each Town Hall Meeting will feature in person and or electronically a distinguished panel of international judges, each with long experience in Human Rights, who will hear testimony through 500 individual events.

The purpose of these events is quantify the damage based on strict scrutiny of past discrimination in line with guidance set out by the United States Supreme Courts; these events started to wrap up on 2015 Martin Luther King Day of Service. Then we will on March 28th 2015 quantify this damage in a week-long session in Washington Dc basedon our work in Cincinnati Ohio; Cleveland, Ohio, and; St. Louis, MO.

It is time to capitalize on our joint skills, contacts and intellectual property through a patent pool process created based on the goal of ending institutionalized governmental racism in the United States of America.
