Subject: STOP TARGETING THE AFRIKAN COMMUNITY!-UPDATE
Stop targeting the Afrikan Community (S.T.A.C)

S.T.A.C./SAFC (Sundiata Acoli Freedom Campaign) has called
for a conference on "ECONOMIC SANCTIONS AGAINST
RACISM IN AMERIKKKA." We have set a date for the
Economic Sanctions Conference scheduled for August 16 & 17,
1996, held in Kansas City, MO. We maintain Afrikans are being
rounded up and physically en-slaved "AGAIN" through Amerika's
Penal System. This is a call for Afrikan sistas & brothas to come
together among ourselves, discuss & strategize on how to
implement Economic Sanctions Nation Wide.
Once we have come to a consensus on our demands and issues, we
will go back to our respective cities and communities and begin to
educate, network and organize around our target, issues and
demands. Our target is the Prison Industry, since this is the fastest
growing industry in Amerika and it is targeting the Afrikan
Nation. We must begin to expose to the people in this kountry
and the World, how the US government is using its citizenry to
fuel the Prison Industry (21st Century Slavery).
Laws are passed that are discriminatory in nature and target
Afrikans in particular. Excessive prison terms are rendered in
order to use Prison Labor to manufacture products for profit for
private corporations and the government. These products are sold
on the open market nationally & internationally, making it
impossible for other corporations to compete with Slave-Labor.
Over half of the federal prison population consists of non-violent
& first-time offenders.
Violent prisoners serve less time compared to non-violent
prisoners, WHY? Non-violent prisoners are suitable for factory
work, they are more passive, cause few problems. With violent
prisoners, they are unpredictable, can't be trusted and will
sabotage the work. This summation is straight from the
oppressor's mouth. Let's look at how prison labor is used today
in Amerika's Prisons (21st Century Slave-Kamps).
Fortune 500 companies such as Chevron, Bank of Amerika,
Macy's & TWA contract prison labor. While Goldman Sachs &
Co., Prudential Ins. Co. of Amerika, Smith Barney Shearton, Inc.
and Merrill Lynch & Co., work to underwrite prison construction
with private, tax-exempt bonds which require NO VOTER
APPROVAL. Prisons in the state of CA make logos for Lexus;
Hawaii makes Spaulding golf balls; Maryland processes hot dogs;
South Carolina makes electronic cables; New Mexico makes
reservations for a chain of hotels; Oregon makes Prison Blues
Jeans; Washington makes Eddie Bauer designer clothes and the list
goes on and on, so does the exploitation.
This is Slavery 21st Century style any way you look at it.
S.T.A.C./SAFC is researching & gathering material on the drugs
used in state sponsored murders and the corporations that
manufacture these drugs & other products; we're also researching
the corporations that BUY & SELL prison made products.
S.T.A.C./SAFC is asking prisoners and people on the outside to
begin to forward us information on what prisons in your particular
state have factories behind prison walls, what they manufacture
and for whom?
This information must be uncovered and exposed. Remember,
people sat back and watched HITLER do his thing, because
HITLER's thing did not affect them personally at that time, will
we sit back while HITLER's Daughter (AMERIKA) does her
thing? The 21st Century Slave-Trade will not be reserved for
Afrikans ONLY this time, it will include us all. Economic
Sanctions is a tool of resistance that everyone can participate in,
no one has to know you are participating in Economic Sanctions,
JUST DO IT.
When the Afrikan Nation presents to the people and world our
strategy on Economic Sanctions, we're asking for EVERYONE's
support, because this affects us "ALL," whether people believe it
or not. The Honorable Marcus Garvey said "WHAT YOU DO
TODAY THAT'S WORTHWHILE, INSPIRES OTHERS TO
ACT AT SOME FUTURE TIME." Please forward any
information or questions to S.T.A.C./SAFC, c/o Shiriki
Unganisha, P.O. Box 5161, Kansas City, MO 64132, 816-333-
We need to have a feel for how many sistas and brothas we should
expect, in order to prepare for food and space for the conference.
We would appreciate a response by March 31, 1996. You may
call or write the address and number above, send an e-mail to
firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax your response to 816-842-3247.
UHURU! UNITED WE WILL WIN!
The purpose of this conference is to strategize on how best to
implement ECONOMIC SANCTIONS and how to educate
everyday Sistas & Brothas about ECONOMIC SANCTIONS; also
to come to a consensus from the information presented at this
Conference on a target, issue and our demands of our
ECONOMIC SANCTIONS CAMPAIGN; and to begin to discuss
and implement strategies to LIBERATE THE AFRIKAN
NATION. Sistas & Brothas, we must lead by example, we must
begin to help our sistas & brothas in our respective communities
to solve some of their day to day problems. To begin to build
institutions to educate our children ourselves, financial institutions
that DO NOT REDLINE against our people; begin to educate our
people that every aspect of our lives are governed by politics and
we must become involved in the political process. Not that we so
much as believe in the politics of North Amerika, however, when
you DO NOT speak for yourself, someone else will. So my Sistas
& Brothas, LET'S RE-BUILD.
