#ProudAfricans COALITION TO DENOUNCE DONALD TRUMP AT UN PROTEST
PROTEST AT DAG HAMMARSKJOLD PLAZA PARK, AT THE UNITED NATIONS 47TH ST & 1ST AVE.
A coalition of African, Caribbean, and African-American professional and social organizations to rally outside the United Nations at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza park on Feb. 15 at 11:00 AM to denounce the anti-Africa-Haitian-El Salvadoran racist comments by President Donald Trump, and to highlight Africa’s past and continuing contributions in the creation of wealth and prosperity in the industrialized West.
The news cycle has switched, but the crude
insults by President Donald Trump to Africa, Haiti and El Salvador on January 11 still hurt. The savagery and ignorance deserve a reply.
Africans of diverse backgrounds, proud of our heritage, will denounce strongly, without stooping to his level of depravity, the vile and racist characterization of people of African descent by this occupant of the House that Africans built.
Donald Trump represents the kind of racism towards Africans, African immigrants, and brutal exploitation that we see around the world. As
the world now knows from the recent CNN expose, Africans are even being auctioned into slavery in Libya. This is the 21st century and we will not stand for it.
The rally is expected to draw thousands of people from the African immigrant, African American, Caribbean and Latino communities from the Tri-State area and nationally.
The protest is organized by the United African Congress (UAC), the Institute of the Black World 21st Century, Give Them A Hand Foundation, African Diaspora Coalition for Justice, Nextmedia.tv, The Black Star News, African Women Solidarity Action for Development,
African Hope Committee, African Commission of Newark, New Jersey, and African Human Rights Commission.
