Black human rights organizations from across the country have launched a massive campaign to “End the Illegal United States Sanctions on Zimbabwe!” Masses of protesters are expected to converge on the streets of mid-town Manhattan during the week of the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly in September 2019.
The principal organizers of the protests are members of the December 12th Movement International Secretariat. “In the spirit of the recent Summit of the 16 Heads of State of the Southern African Development Community, who proclaimed solidarity in defense of Zimbabwe and vowed to simultaneously take actions to end the illegal sanctions in their respective countries; we will set our protest actions off here in New York City on Saturday, September 21. We will assemble on 53rd St and Lexington Ave at 12 noon,” movement spokesman Kamau Brown explained.
“Let it be known that African people around the world are fighting in Pan African unity to end the U.S. sanctions on Zimbabwe. We all must stand in defense of the national sovereignty of the Republic of Zimbabwe, and self-determination for all of Africa. Sanctions kill! They are Western weapons of greed, destruction and death. U.S. hands off Zimbabwe!”
