The Call responds to a resolution unanimously adopted at the coalition’s
National Conference on The Other Wars, held in Washington, D.C. on March 26
and attended by an array of Africans representing various ideological, political views and organizations from throughout the U.S., with other participants from
Canada, England, Congo, Haiti and the Bahamas.
August 20 was chosen because it is the birthday weekend of Marcus Garvey
who was born on August 17 and, who more than anyone, came to symbolize
the need for international action by African people to win our liberation.
The International Day of Action Against Imperialist Wars Against Africa and African People Worldwide is a response to the relentless imperialist aggressions against African people everywhere—in Africa and in places where Africans
were forcibly dispersed throughout the world during the process of slavery
and colonialism, which resulted in the emergence of capitalism as the
dominant world economy.
On August 20, the African community of the world will register our condemnation
of and resistance to the wars being made against our people and our freedom everywhere.We will oppose the heinous bombing of Libya and the violent attempt
to overthrow that government.
