Harlem Pan African Unity Day! March & Rally on August 15

The Pan African Solidarity Hague Committee (PASHC), led by the December 12th Movement International Secretariat, will sponsor Harlem Pan African Unity Day march and rally on Wednesday, August 15, 2012. The rally will assemble at 4:30 PM in front of the Harlem State Office Bldg on the corner of Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Blvd & 125th Street. “Africans Unite! Pan Africanism Rising Up,” is the clarion call to action.

In June the PASHC delegation traveled from NYC to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague Netherlands to deliver a petition to indict the United States, Britain, France, and all NATO countries for war crimes and crimes against humanity. The legal document submitted focused on the crimes committed against Libya, Haiti, Zimbabwe, Cote d’Ivoire and the Africans in the United States.

Heretofore the ICC has only prosecuted African leaders who have struggled for self determination in their nations. President of Cote d’Ivoire, Laurent Gbago, is currently being held in a ICC detention center awaiting trial. At the Harlem Pan African Unity Day rally PASHC will focus on the case of President Gbagbo whom they consider a Prisoner Of War. PASHC asserted in their petition to the ICC that the institution itself being is used as a tool for western nations to recolonize Africa.
