Event description
March for Reparations: A call for white solidarity with Black Power, under the leadership of the African People's Socialist Party

About this Event

Why We March

“March for Reparations to African People” on October 17, 2020 is a national day of political action coordinated by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, the reparations organization of white people formed by and working under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party.

This is a call to the white population to march for reparations as a stance of principled solidarity with the black community and their righteous struggle for Black Power, political and economic power over their own lives and resources.

LOCAL DEMANDS:

1) Make Wall Street Pay Reparations. Bank of America and other corporations and banks on Wall Street must pay reparations to the African community through massive return of stolen wealth into the Black Power Blueprint, the anti-colonial economic development program of the African working class.

2) Make St. Louis local government pay reparations to African people.

3) Jail Mayor Lyda Krewson for theft of black community resources.

4) Reparations and justice for Mike Brown, Kiwi Herring, and all victims of police murder.

5) Solidarity with black community control of the police: end colonial police occupation of the black community.

6) Stop ward reduction and genocidal gentrification of North St. Louis. Keep 28 wards for St. Louis City.

7) Shut down the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA).

March for reparations as a genuine stand of solidarity with the courageous African uprisings that arose after the brutal murder of George Floyd.

March to demand reparations from the Wall Street billionaires, including Bank of America and other banks and corporations who are getting richer everyday while the COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc on African and Indigenous communities, 40 million people face evictions and 40 percent of African families cannot afford to feed their families.

March for reparations to go beyond self-serving “anti-racism” that puts white people’s feelings in the center and take a stand against colonialism, the total domination of a whole people by a colonial state power for the benefit of the oppressor nation. White people, it is time for us to refuse to be complicit with our own government’s crimes against the black community.

Make Wall Street, Bank of America and other corporations and banks pay reparations to the African community through massive return of stolen wealth into the Black Power Blueprint, the anti-colonial economic development program of the African working class.

March for Reparations is itself an act of reparations, functioning as a major fundraiser for the economic programs of the African People’s Socialist Party, including the Black Power Blueprint.
