Trump's latest travel ban is an attack on Africans

Well said Opal Tometi!

Opal Tometi, longtime immigrant rights activist and co-founder of #BlackLivesMatter, writes from her perspective as a Nigerian-American in strong opposition to the Trump administration's recent expansion of its travel ban to include six more countries, predominantly in Africa.

Opinion | If countries added to the travel ban are so dangerous, why do we sell them arms?

contradictions noted! military expanding and financial benefits ok, but bar the people! Immigrants and refugees from travel-ban countries should reach out to African Advocacy Network (AAN) for legal assistance!

If these places are so threatening, the U.S. shouldn't continue to give their governments the very weapons that can make them even more unsafe.

A report worth earth’s time!

A report worth earth’s time!

Our new report on climate refugees warns that the worsening climate crisis is increasing the number of refugees forced to cross international borders and calls for a new legal mechanism to protect them.

"Ignoring the impact of climate change and focusing on market-based solutions is hypocritical," says Honduran activist Bertha Isabel Zuniga Cáceres in an interview featured in the report. "These policies, such as relaxing environmental regulations to attract foreign investments, perpetuate dependency and exacerbate the climate crisis, which is generated by excessive production and consumption."

https://www.informedimmigrant.com/how-to-prepare-yourself-for-an-immigration-raid/

PAN is proud thane been part of 2019 Africa Day in Oakland!! Collaboration with stellar team of young people! Thanks especially to AUS leader Nkei Coumba Toure Muhammed Lamin Saidykhan

SO a week ago, 5k + people. This happened!

We celebrated Africa Day. And it’s literally taking us a week to recover, reflect and review. The Bay Area, (Oakland to be specific) goes HARD on keeping the spirit of Pan African Unity and Liberation alive, and celebrating Africa Day is a good reminder of that.

◆◆◆◆◆◆
Thank you to the artists and people who performed, presented and shared activities in the spirit of Africa Day.
Attendees got to experience:
Live drumming by Baba Ken & the African Drummers,
Afro soul dance party by the effervescent PIWAI and her live band
djleydisofcuba & @djmpenzi had us grooving with Pan african dance music
We got schooled via African History Jeopardy with Kulture Freedom @yafeutyhimba, and Storytelling by Nathalie Minya.
Interactive activities like Hair Braiding with TC Hair Suites @tc_braid_camp, and Playground games with Philip Agyapong @african.popular.dance and Denis Amos kept our bodies and spirits lit.
And our hosts Nkei Oruche @nkorigible & Rufaro Gwarada kept us connected.

◆◆◆◆◆◆

Shout out to the Oakland Museum of California for hosting & creating space, specifically Preston for seeing US and working hard to make this event possible, to the OMCA Friday Nights Crew for making things run sooooo smooth.

◆◆◆◆◆◆

Thanks to our collaborators Priority Africa, The Umoja Festivall @thriveafrica.us, for the vision, the work, and for thriving partnerships in the name of our people & cultures!

◆◆◆◆◆◆

We are excited to keep sharing with you ways that you can plug in through arts and culture to be more conscious, more truthful, more just in your connection as/with people of African Descent. So stay connected!

◆◆◆◆◆◆
Come. See. Be.

So proud of PAN, partnering with Thousand Currents and Africansinthe Diaspora is hosting this event. Brilliant thinker Mazibuko K. Jara in conversation with the dynamic Solome Lemma exploring current global, regional and national dynamics of land and power in South Africa. See details below and RSVP. There's limited space.
http://bit.ly/FreeUdoka Udoka, a gay asylum seeker from Nigeria has been caged in Adelanto Detention facility in California since 2016 when he surrendered himself after a traumatic trek through South and Central America. The trauma haunts him in detention where he has been diagnosed with a severe mental illness and has attempted to take his life. Udoka’s deportation could mean a prison sentence or death and his continued detention could worsen his mental health and suicidality. Join us in demanding he be released on parole immediately so he can access desperately needed treatment for his condition. http://bit.ly/FreeUdoka
