On the national level, the National Black United Front implemented
its one year
Program of Action – Campaign of Unity Against Genocide, adopted
at the Second Convention. On October 31, 1981, the campaign began and
culminated on April 3, 1982. Various programs and actions were developed
and implemented by local chapters.
On the international level, the National Black United Front continued
the call from governmental and non-governmental organizations to participate
in Anniversaries, Study Programs and Conferences.
Indeed, when we look back over the past year, we can give ourselves
a well-deserved pat on the back. Looking ahead, we will need all the
encouragement we can summon. The Septuagenarian who now inhabits the
White House has clearly shown his anti-Black, anti-poor face.
His “rich take the meat, and the poor take the bones,” economic
policies. Even his Office of Management and Budget Director, David Stockman,
admitted as much.
His racism regarding “Social Legislation” against the Voters
Rights Bill, against Busing; and on the other hand, his support for
racist schools desiring tax exemption status.
His anti-Third World foreign policy, support for repressive, racist
regimes, the military Junta in El Salvador, Guatemala, Chile, and the
Apartheid Regime in South Africa. No President in recent times has been
as open and blatant in support of South Africa as this Septuagenarian.
His opposition to third-world progressive countries Angola, Grenada,
Nicaragua, and Cuba.
When we survey the foreign and domestic policies of the Septuagenarian,
convinced that not since the days of Post-Reconstruction have we been
confronted with such a threat to our survival.
Let us be ever mindful of the gravity and fierce urgency of the hour.
Awesome responsibilities have been thrust upon us. Towering tasks await
us. The shape of the present and future depend upon what we do. Therefore,
it is imperative that we be in Atlanta and prepare to rise to the occasion.
Let us meet as brothers and sisters, to debate and deliberate, to put
forth our resolutions, to plan and program for the future, to reflect
on the greatness of our history, and to celebrate our rich and timeless
We must plumb the depth within our race/soul and draw upon the strength,
courage, and wisdom of the Masais, Maroon, Shaka, Toussaint, Denmark,
Marcus, Paul, Malcolm and Martin… We must forge the strongest
bond of people hood, always confident that the “Future Is Ours”…
Cognizant of the fact that the beast fights hardest because he is fatally
wounded… But, “Victory Is Ours.”
Forward together, Backward never.
