Madame Fathia, W.E.B. DuBois, President Kwame Nkrumah and Shirley Graham DuBois in Ghana in 1963 on the 95th Birthday of Dr. DuBois.

Saturday, May 18, 2013

Noon – 5:00 pm

5920 Second Ave., Detroit, MI (two blocks north of Wayne State U.)

May 25, 2013 will mark the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the continental organization formed by all of the heads of state to accelerate the liberation from colonialism and the political, economic and social unification of Africa.

After five decades of the OAU and its successor, the African Union, formed in 2002, it is necessary for a thorough assessment of the progress and challenges facing Africa and the Diaspora in light of the escalating imperialist militarism being carried out by the United States, France, Britain and other NATO countries.

Featured Speakers Include:

  • Rita Kiki Edozie, Director of African and African American Studies at Michigan State University in Lansing
  • Abayomi Azikwe, Editor of the Pan-African News

No War on Korea-IACenter poster

Despite the claims of western capitalist media, the US and its puppets are responsible for the escalating tensions with Korea and the region as a whole. The claims made by the enemies of the Korean people and the entire world’s oppressed try to project the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea as an unpredictable, hyper-militarized, loose cannon threatening world stability and even all out nuclear war. The reality however, is that it is the US and its allies who pose a threat to peace wherever they are present. It is the 30,000 US troops on the DPRK border, the war maneuvers, and attempts to starve the Korean people through UN sanctions that are at the root of the current crisis in the region.

War in Korea will only lead to destruction and the substantial loss of human life that will have a deep impact on the entire world. US out of Korea! Peaceful Reunification NOW!

Korea-No War poster from IACenter.orgBy Deirdre Griswold, International Action Center

April 2, 201

For a second month, tens of thousands of U.S. and south Korean troops are carrying out simulated assaults on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea — north Korea.

For the first time during these annual “exercises,” designated as Key Resolve and Foal Eagle, nuclear-capable B-2 bombers flew from Missouri to south Korea and back in a simulated bombing of the north. Continue reading »
