The Durban 400 announces a Millions For Reparation
March, Protest and Demonstration

The Durban 400, a group lead by NBUF and the December
12th Movement at the World Conference Against Racism
and that influenced the "Declaration" that the Trans
Atlantic Slave Trade and Slavery was a crime Against
Humanity is calling for a Millions For Reparations
March, Protest, and Demonstration in the Nations
Capital, Washington, D.C. on August 17, 2002. This
demonstration will honor Marcus Mosiah Garvey on the
115th Anniversary of his birth.

The Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, Slavery, and Jim Crow
set the stage for the 21st Century. The policy of
entrenched racism has emanated from all branches of
the United States government, from the days of the
auction block to the recent United States walkout of
the United Nations World Conference Against Racism
held in Durban, South Africa. The United States
government has relentlessly held on to its white
supremacist ideology.

The exploitation of African people in this country has
taken many forms through the years. The centuries of
chattel slavery laid the foundation of our
relationship to America. From the sharecropping fields
to the factories, African labor built the "super
power" that is the United States. In return, we have
endured the terrorism of the Ku Klux Klan, systematic
lynchings, chain gangs, plantation prisons, police
torture and murder, poverty, miseducation, inadquate
housing, unemployment, welfare WEP programs, ACS child
kidnappings, voter discrimination, crack, heroin,
Rockefeller drug laws, Political Prisoners, and the
assassination of our leaders. However, we're still
here!!!

The demand for reparations for African people is just
and simple. It is simply an attempt to "repair," to
"make whole" the descendants of the victims of the
Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, which was a CRIME AGAINST
HUMANITY! Crimes against humanity have no stature of
limitations. And our people still suffer from the
vestiges of their enslavement and colonization.

We are going to the Capitol of the United States,
built on slave labor, the rightful and only place to
declare our human and legal right to REPARATIONS.

THEY OWE US!!!
We must Struggle for Self-Determination !
We must Fight for Liberation !

Every African in American owes it to him/herself to
support the fight for REPARATIONS
