Kwanzaa will be an official holiday of this community

We have decided to make Kwanzaa the first one of the official holidays of this community.

Kwanzaa is a cultural festival observed mainly by US Afro Americans. But we want to promote it so that it is observed by Afro Americans of other American countries.

We also want to make it popular again, as it has lost a lot of popularity, even among US Afro Americans.

Kwanzaa is celebrated between December 26 and January 1.

It is a time for celebrating Black history. In order words a time to celebrate African and Afro American history.

Kwanzaa, a Swahili word, roughly means First Fruits.

According to Maulana Karenga who founded Kwanzaa, each of the seven days of Kwanzaa is dedicated to one of the following principles:

1. Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.

2. Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define and name ourselves, as well as to create and speak for ourselves.
Ujima (Collective Work and

3. Responsibility): To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers’ and sisters’ problems our problems and to solve them together.

4. Ujamaa (Cooperative economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops, and other businesses and to profit from them together.

5. Nia (Purpose): To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.

6. Kuumba (Creativity): To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

7. Imani (Faith): To believe with all our hearts in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.

We look forward to celebrating the Kwanzaa, and call on the Community to make the next Kwanzaa rock!

Haiti AU Rejection: Offokaja Foundation Drags Libya To African Human Rights Commission

Haiti AU Rejection: Offokaja Foundation Drags Libya To African Human Rights Commission

Says Haiti Is In African Continent Through Statute Of AU Constitutive Act

Press Release

The Prince And Princess Charles Offokaja Foundation (Nigeria) recently petitioned the African Commission On Human And Peoples Rights, ACHPR, over the Libya’s failure to bring up Haiti’s 2012 request to join the African AU Union for consideration and voting on the floor of the AU Assembly of Heads of State and Government.

Libya, the Member State that midwifed the formation of the AU, did not bring up the request, despite its obligation to do so under Article 22(2) of the African Charter On Human And Peoples Rights.

Prior to Libya’s omission, the African Commission, a creation of the AU Constitutive Act, blocked Haiti’s request from reaching the Assembly. This blockage violated Haiti’s rights under Article 29:2, of the AU Constitutive Act. By implication, this means that all other Afro American States have been unlawfully discouraged from applying for AU membership and by extension, membership in AU bodies like the African Continental Free Trade Area, ACFTA, the world’s biggest free trade area.

ARTICLES VIOLTATED
The foundation argued that after the African Commission violated Articles 9(c) and Article 29(2) of the Constitutive Act of the African Union, and Article 3(q) of the Protocol On Amendments To The Constitutive Act Of The African Union, by unlawfully blocking Haiti, Libya violated Articles 1, 22(1), 22(2), and 21(4) of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights by not ensuring that Haiti’s request was considered and voted for by the Assembly.

The foundation, therefore requested that:

1. The African Commission For Human And Peoples Rights encourages and assists the Libyan Government to immediately request a meeting of the Assembly in which Haiti’s request for membership will be considered and voted upon.
2. The African Commission For Human And Peoples Rights encourages and assists Libya to immediately request a meeting of the Assembly in which the granting of Special Observer status to Diaspora representative organizations in the Assembly under the supervision of AU’s Citizens And Diaspora Directorate CIDO will be considered.
The organizations granted observer status within the framework of CIDO should represent where available the 3 periods of Diaspora migration, namely; the pre-slave trade period, the slave trade (Afro American) period, and the modern period.
3. That the African Commission on Human And Peoples Rights encourages Libya to attach the same importance it attached to midwifing the formation of the African Union in 1999 to this call to midwife the expansion, broadening and deepening of Diaspora roles in the continued building of the African Union.

For just as Libya proposed the formation of the African Union to prevent a recurrence of the Rwandan Genocide, [expansion of the Union to enable States and Representative Organization to Fully participate] will serve as a kind of healing balm for victims of another African Genocide, the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade. It will take the observance of the African Charter to another glorious level.

The Foundation further calls on Libya to work in partnership with other African countries that may wish to champion the cause of right the wrongs done to Haiti, and by extension, the Afro American Peoples.
