The Black is Back Coalition hosts a November 13 March & Rally at Malcolm X Park, Washington, DC.
This will mark the second year in a row that the Black is Back Coalition will march on the White House while Barack Obama, the first black US President, occupies it.
The mobilization will protest Obama’s continuing wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the administration’s funding and support through AFRICOM of the different proxy wars on the African Continent, especially Congo, Rwanda and Somalia.
This imperialist aggression goes hand in hand with the ever increasing war-like posture and police violence against African and other oppressed people here in the US, in Occupied Palestine, and throughout the world.
The coalition’s official name, The Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations, first came together on September 12, 2009. On November 7 of last year the entire spectrum of black political activists – nationalists, communists, Muslims, Christians, socialists, etc. – came together in Washington, DC, holding the first national anti-war protest against Obama’s continuation of unjust US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
