Black Intellectuals, Vaccines & Stopping the Maangamizi: A Pan-Afrikan Reparatory Justice Critical Examination

“You must not abandon discussion out of tact . . . There should be no
concession where there is a question of establishing a scientific truth . . .
Remember we are focused on a quest for truth and not on a sacrosanct idol
we must avoid debasing”

Cheikh Anta Diop quoted in ‘Great African Thinkers: Cheik Anta Diop’ by Ivan Van Sertima, (1968) p.13

 “If you do not understand white supremacy (racism) what it is and how it works everything else you know will only confuse you.”

Neely Fuller, Jr. in The United Independent Compensatory Code/System/Concept (1984)

If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it
Zora Neale Hurston

In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act!


As a campaign tackling issues of genocide and ecocide, we in the Stop the Maangamizi: We Charge Genocide/Ecocide Campaign (SMWeCGEC) cannot fail to recognise the importance of the debate raging on vaccines for COVID-19 in particular, and vaccines in general, for Afrikan Heritage Communities across the world. We need to make our position clear, more so in the light of two prominent figures, whom we consider friends, in the United Kingdom (UK); Dr Patrick Vernon OBE and Professor Kehinde Andrews openly advertising and encouraging our people to take the COVID-19 vaccine; and also recognising what is driving some vaccine hesitancy initiatives in response to the weaponisation of COVID-19 and other pandemics. Clarification of our SMWeCGEC position may also help to ascertain what our standpoint is for engagement with emergent coalitions, such as the International Coalition Against the Coronavirus and other Pandemics for African Development based in Lomé, Togo on the Continent of Afrika and the recently announced proposal for an Afrikan Coalition Against Genocide in the UK.

We of the SMWeCGEC consider ourselves as critical friends of both Patrick and Kehinde together with whom we hope we share in common a desire to see the best interests of our Afrikan Heritage Communities advanced everywhere, and therefore choose to make this response and publicly communicate it to all in order to contribute, at this dangerous time, to raising critical consciousness within and beyond our Global Afrikan Family; for the purpose of better comprehending the fact that this emergency period of the escalating climate and ecological crises demands of us all the very urgent need to be far more careful than ever before about our thoughts and actions particularly those that are shared on social media.

Indeed, we of SMWeCGEC are striving to ensure in everything that we do that not only do we raise critical consciousness, but work our hardest to advance its progression into critical legal consciousness. We do so to enable us to learn together, to better express, enlighten, and more boldly act out the will of our Afrikan People glocally to become the power of law everywhere; so that we can compel all of humanity to respect, abide by and enforce our Global Afrikan collective will to safeguard legitimate Human, Peoples and Mother Earth rights. Accordingly, we hope Patrick and Kehinde will take our constructively critical observations for what they are meant to promote: iron sharpening iron in the critical engagement best Black Radical intellectual traditions of our Afrikan Heritage Communities throughout the world.

Twitter Post of Professor Kehinde Andrews on 20 Feb 2021

In these times when some Afriphobic racists are louder demanding depopulation, targeting Afrikans, as a means to redressing the climate and ecological crises, Black intellectuals have a duty to stand with their community, to identify with their fears and concerns and support them to test the genuineness of this case for a vaccine and to then use their academic, and in the case of Patrick, health care knowledge to clarify matters in this case. The examples of Kehinde and Patrick as leading public figures taking the Covid-19 vaccine will be cited across Commonwealth countries; so they themselves must become more conscious of the global role they are playing in advocating for these vaccines in what has been referred to (in January 2021) as a “great experiment” by US based Dr Don J. Tynes who works at the Benton Harbor Health Center in Michigan, see news report below.

Although Dr Tynes speaks as a Black medical professional, he is also very clear on the fact that this experiment is one more example of the series of attempts to misuse Afrikan people for experiments that result in genocide and he particularly highlights the role of Black professionals who act as ‘sell-outs’ in seducing, enticing and coercing their own people into such murderous processes of science and technology, (e.g.“…and not trust a Black face, Black faces [also] harm the Black Race”). This is the kind of exemplary truth-telling standpoint in the best interest of our Afrikan Heritage Communities that we wished the likes of Kehinde and Patrick were taking here in the UK.



If Kehinde is serious in his assertion of being concerned about the racism of the Covid-19 pandemic, then the vaccine hesitancy of Afrikan Heritage Communities locally, nationally and internationally must be evaluated from an glocal anti-racist, anti-imperialist, and as someone who constantly advocates revolutionary change, one would have thought also a ‘revolutionary medical’ standpoint.

The motives of anyone who, contrary to the historical and contemporary experiences of their people, advocates that their people should just cast aside their fears and concerns and #TakeTheVaccine, should definitely be questioned. For what is the evidence base and factual knowledge to say it is safe for your people to take a Covid-19 vaccine?; especially when there has been no ‘repair’ of the healthy mistrust that Afrikan Heritage Communities across the world have of establishment medicine which has in many instances been used against them for nefarious purposes. If Afrikan Heritage Communities are to trust any vaccine, we ourselves must be able to prove that it is good for our people by doing our own independent investigations into the efficacy and safety of vaccines and establishing an Afrikan Heritage Communities led independent peer-review mechanism. This is even more urgent given the fact that the speed of the development of these vaccines means that the long-term consequences on those that take the vaccine from Afrikan Heritage Communities are not known. Of equal concern and alarm is the fact that in the UK, and around the world, vaccine producers have been given immunity from civil liability and so individuals are in effect taking full unmitigated responsibility for the potentially serious effects of a vaccine because there is currently is no adequate recourse to remedy in the event of any complications developing. 

Whilst we accept, there maybe a case that can be made for some type of vaccine, it is fool hardy to uncritically advocate the use of vaccines produced by a historically anti-Afrikan system, more so by its notorious capitalist pharma-medical industrial complex known for seeking profit at all cost over and above decent values and principles. So where such vaccines become necessary, Afrikan Heritage Communities and our tested and trusted allies should be able to supervise the process of vaccine development, manufacture, culturally safe clinical trials and administration from start to finish; as has also been advocated by Dr Nevers Mumba, a politician in Zambia. Outside such a process controlled by duly representative, trustworthy and accountable organs of the masses of Afrikan People, then it is sheer agent-provocateurism to insist that Afrikans accept and take vaccines made for them by others.

Cultural Safety: An approach that considers how social and historical contexts, as well as structural and interpersonal power imbalances, shape health and health care experiences.“Safety” is defined by those who receive health services, not those who provide them.

By agent-provocateurism we mean, consciously or unconsciously provoking our people into taking courses of action, seemingly radical but actually premature and/or erroneous and therefore not well prepared to succeed, and so more likely to be to the counterinsurgency benefit of our enemies rather than the masses of our Afrikan People in the long-term; therefore bringing overwhelming backlash in the more likely event of failure, to cause huge losses even deaths and more atrocious persecution, demoralisation and reversals of previously won gains, so setting back our clock of advancement to victorious total liberation. Furthermore, those genuinely interested in our Afrikan People’s healthcare and wellbeing should be willing from a Reparatory Justice perspective, to release resources from the accumulated wealth of our past and present generations that they have in their possession so we, as part of our Afrikan Heritage Community Self-Repairs, can utilise them for our needs; as for example to fund proper research that will enable us to design, produce, freely distribute, monitor, evaluate and constantly improve such vaccines of our own making; combining our own indigenous medical knowledge and expertise with modern technological processes.



We can draw inspiration from the attempts by scientists and health professionals in Madagascar who prompted their government to support their initiative in creating their own home based organic remedies and other Afrikan medical solutions from what they have in their own environment to address Covid-19 and the threat of pandemics. This is a good example of how Afrikan professionals can take the initiative in ensuring governments support their own Afrikan solutions to problems affecting our Afrikan Heritage Communities within and outside Afrika. We note the good leadership example, in this particular matter, of President John Magufuli of Tanzania who on the 27th January 2021, speaking at a ceremony on the opening of a public forest in Chato in the Geita Region in Tanzania echoed the sentiments of many Afrikan Heritage Communities when he said: “The ministry of health should be careful, they should not hurry to try these vaccines without doing research, not every vaccine is important to us, we should be careful. We should not be used as ‘guinea pigs“. There is also exemplary leadership in the Afrikan Diaspora on this vaccine question from Minster Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam.

This issue of our people being targeted as guinea pigs for experimental vaccines and the heightened need for biosafety is a globally shared Afrikan Heritage Communities concern since Covid-19 vaccines has been produced in a system which continues to perpetrate acts of genocide and ecocide against Afrikan people and our environments. It is also the case that the history of disease and warfare are interwoven and not only does the potential exist, but contemporary facts demonstrate, as is currently happening in the foreign orchestrated wars being imposed upon Iraq, Syria and Yemen, that genetic engineering can be applied for biological warfare or bioterrorism purposes, which in itself is the weaponisation of biochemistry for war crimes of genocide.We cannot critically examine and analyze Covid-19 vaccines or indeed vaccine hesitancy without a knowledge of the historical and geopolitical climate in which they are being produced.

Accordingly, we recommend the following points of action:

1. Noting that right now in the current situation of a climate and ecological crisis where depopulation is the eco-fascist solution being popularised for execution against Afrikans and other undesirable colonised peoples of the world, we must recognise that the question of taking or not taking any kind of vaccine is a life and death matter for our peoples across the world. Rather than just focus on the disproportionate impacts of symptoms, we should be courageous at tackling the root causes of such zoonotic viruses and diseases as Covid-19 and other pandemics, as well as building peoples power and community self-defence capabilities to resist and avert the proliferation of genetic engineering and synthetic biology technologies, especially given the lack of legal protection that people have against the iatrogenic harms of vaccine companies.

2. We invite all those interested to join us of the SMWeCGEC in setting up an international working group of the PEMPAMSIESAFO Pan-Afrikan Reparatory Justice Special Task Action Research Forces (PEMPAMSIESAFO-PARJSTARF) to work on addressing Afrikan Heritage Communities concerns about vaccines and pandemics.

PEMPAMSIEASAFO Afrikan Heritage Communities Self-Repairs forces that are ‘sewing in freedom-fighting readiness’ for Pan-Afrikan Reparatory Justice victory. Asafos are community militia formation to which everybody belongs for community self-defence in some indigenous communities in West Afrika. There are similar formations within Afrikan communities throughout the Continent and the Diaspora of Afrika.

3. We invite all those who are interested to join us in critically exploring, debating and counteracting the role of agent-provocateurism in our Pan-Afrikan Liberation endeavours particularly highlighting its counterinsurgency role for seeking to derail the rising wave of our Afrikan Heritage Community organisation, particularly disciplined glocal movement-building and its necessarily diligent scholar-activist spearheading towards strengthening the International Social Movement for Afrikan Reparations (ISMAR) and the Peoples Reparations International Movement (PRIM).

4. The Stop The Maangamizi Petition should be studied more deeply in terms of how enemy schemes such as the weaponisation of pandemics, as manifestations of the Maangamizi, are highlighted for serious reflection and action; including their resolution through processes such as the All-Party Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry for Truth & Reparatory Justice (APPCITARJ) and its paving of the way for our own Afrikan People’s solutions including the Ubuntukgotla-Peoples International Tribunal for Global Justice and other endeavours for building MAATUBUNTUMAN in UBUNTUDUNIA.

5. Contact us to learn more, including how best you can participate from a Pan-Afrikan Liberatory Perspective highlighting holistic Reparatory Justice, in the ‘Battle of Ideas’ raging on issues such as pandemics, vaccines and depopulation. Under the international law reparations remedy of rehabilitation, collective reparations for the long-term consequences of the Maangamizi, both past and present, can be expressed through public health objectives that aim to stop medical/pharmaceutical wrongs and eliminate lingering racialised health disparities. The ‘Battle of Ideas’ is an important ideological tool in the struggle to transform minds and hearts in support of or against a cause. Within a space where a number of ideological positions struggle for supremacy – reflective of national, ethnic, class and gendered  tensions within society – the ISMAR as a revolutionary international social movement should not neglect the importance of winning hearts and minds and mobilising society around a common Reparatory Justice vision that presents a credible political, social and economic narrative around which the movement seeks to transform minds and hearts to support, with all credibility, an alternative to that of the dominant white supremacy racist, capitalist, imperialist, sexist class.

AEDRMC & SMWeCGEC Newsletter 2019



Welcome to the Kwanzaa season newsletter from the Afrikan Emancipation Day Reparations March Committee (AEDRMC) and the ‘Stop the Maangamizi: We Charge Genocide/Ecocide! Campaign (SMWeCGEC)


In this edition:

Introduction – We cannot march forever!

Introduction

We cannot march forever!

As we approach a new year we are also powering up towards #Reparations2020 from now leading up to 1st August and beyond and it will be a year to remember! This is year 7 – but WE CANNOT MARCH FOREVER! We are embracing this year’s theme of Kwanzaa, Living Kwanzaa and the Seven Principles: An All-Seasons Celebration and Practice of the Good.” Implicit in the theme is the question of how we make Kwanzaa and by extension the Afrikan Emancipation Day Reparations March more than an annual event, or indeed our reparations activism an episodic engagement!

As we immerse ourselves in this celebration of our Afrikan identity, history and proud heritage during the Kwanzaa season, we must also recall the strategies and tactics of our Ancestors and so see the Nguzo Saba in a reparatory justice framework for action:

Umoja – Unity in action towards Nation Building – Maatubuntman in Ubuntudunia – our future vision of Pan-Afrikan Nationhood & Internationalism.

Kujichagulia – Defining for ourselves what it means to be a repaired Nation/people and securing the means for guarantees of non-repetition of Maangamizi Criminality.

Ujima – Knowing what part you can play however big or small – taking personal responsibility for your part in our collective reparatory goals – one milestone being the All-Party Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry for Truth and Reparatory Justice (APPCITARJ) called for in the ‘Stop the Maangamizi!’petition.

Ujaama – Investing in and organising for our own liberation and as well as contributing resources to collective goals. One of such goals are the goals objectives and activities of the SMWeCGEC whose aims can be found here. The Afrikan Emancipation Day Reparations March (AEDRM) – also requires your investment to fulfil its aims of raising awareness of our self-determined goals whilst also working with the SMWeCGEC to hold the Maangamizi Criminals to account in the process of resisting “the plunder, pollution and depletion of the shared resources of Mother Earth and the monopoly of wealth for the few at the expense of the shared good of society and the world that belong to all in common.

Nia – Purpose and keeping focused on our goals. We are on a long journey started by our Ancestors. We are given our lives for a purpose and that purpose can only be to serve our own collective interests of reparation, reconstruction, recovery and rejuvenation. We must work to build our own or others will have us building theirs!

Kuumba – Our creativity can do much more than entertain! Let us use it to alert the world to our quest for reparatory justice – let it illuminate and amplify the voices of Freedom, Justice, Liberty or Death!

Imani – Together we can build our trust confidence in each other so we are no longer defeated in the race of life and finally stand tall as a people who have regained their power and authority on the world stage. Can we do? Yes we can!

Indeed, our Ancestors called us in Swahili, not only watu – human beings, but also walimwengu – world beings. They also taught us the Maatian ethical imperative of serudj ta, to constantly repair, renew and remake the world, making it more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it, and leaving it as a rich legacy for those who come after us.

So, if we are to utilise the Nguzo Saba beyond seven days we need to call on our Ancestors to furnish us with the courage and fortitude that they possessed so we can progress our goals. Marching will not be enough, letter writing will not be enough – these tactics have to be developed into seriously disruptive strategies & tactics that put the noble cause of Reparations on the world stage – are you ready for that?


Stop the Maangamizi: We Charge Genocide/Ecocide! Campaign (SMWeCGEC) Update

The SMWeCGEC has been busy:

• Supporting individuals who have been lobbying their MPs with the 3 demands on the back of the SMWeCGEC postcard.
• Interfacing with politicians and political parties.
• Working with the Global Afrikan Peoples Parliament to build support for the Global Afrikan Family Bloc of the Reparations March.
• Making international connections in pursuit of our Pan-Afrikan reparatory justice agenda.
• Working with the AEDRMC on the programme of action up to and on 1st Mosiah (August) 2020.
• Building alliances with various constituencies concerned with ecocide and its impact on our genocide.

You can find out more about the SMWeCGEC here.


Our 2020 Theme


It cannot be emphasised enough that there will be no reparatory justice on a dead planet! Afrikan people have been the chief custodians of flora and fauna and all the earth’s natural resources that are now at risk due to the Maangamizi Criminality of Western imperialism. So this year’s THEME for our reparatory activism AND the Afrikan Emancipation Day Reparations March on 1st August 2020 is: Seizing the Time to Stop the Maangamizi – Planet Repairs NOW!

With our partner the SMWeCGEC, we will be working with you, our allies and supporters to raise awareness of the links between Ecocide and Genocide and the imminent risk to Our People, Our Continent and Our World! Read more about this here.

 


Public Meeting: Thursday 23rd January 2020 – Karibu Centre Brixton 5pm

4C (4°C) PLUS WORLD ECOCIDE ALARM: Now is Our Time to Seize Together for Planet Repairs!

 

 

This is the theme for Brixton Thursday 23rd January 2020 Special Meeting from 5.30pm-10pm

The SMWeCGEC is supporting the co-organisation of this event by the Extinction Rebellion Internationalist Solidarity Network in United Kingdom (XRISNUK), together with XR Scientists and the XR Movement of Movements Working Group. The event is being hosted at the Karibu Education Centre by Brixtonics@Brixton, one of the local community group partners of the XRISNUK Global Justice Rebellion Roadshow (GJRR).

The purpose of the event is to discuss and launch the GJRR 4C Plus World Ecocide Alarm Programme (GJRR-4C+WEAP) of the XRISNUK. This is an opportunity to kickstart the New Year with a special XR Internationalist Solidarity event, led by Afrikan Heritage Community and Global South Diasporan Activists that will highlight the urgency of accelerating campaigns like Stop the Maangamizi! before Planet Earth burns beyond 4C out of control to wipe out all Life.

So, the GJRR-4C+WEAP will see XRISNUK advance its Movement of Movements’ collaboration with our partners engaged in building networks like XR Affinity All-Afrikan Network (XRAAAN), XR Affinity Network of Asia (XRANA) and XR Red de Afinidad de Abya Yala de Sur (XRRAAYS) in South Abya Yala (South America), to develop further their own aspects of the programme, devoted to glocally raising even higher the Worldwide alarm about the worsening of the Genocide/Ecocide being experienced right now, mostly by the Majority World members of our Family of Humanity, with the escalating danger of a 4C Plus World in the very near future!

Attendance at the event is strictly upon XRISNUK invitation only because of limited space, security and other necessary considerations.

Introducing the Maangamizi Education Trust


The Maangamizi Educational Trust was set up as the charitable arm of the ‘Stop The Maangamizi: We Charge Genocide/Ecocide!’ Campaign in 2018 to:

• educate and raise awareness and understanding amongst the public of the Maangamizi its causes, contemporary impacts and redress including endeavours of community repair at local, national and international levels.
• provide advocacy/advice/information about the racism of Afriphobia and other manifestations of the Maangamizi; and
• develop teaching resources and deliver educational programmes about the Maangamizi and initiatives to stop and redress it.

One of our current projects is working with the University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Futures Institute as a community partner to co-create a publicly accessible digital Reparations Archive. This archive will narrate the wealth of work that has been undertaken by UK-based activists since 1987 in their struggle to achieve reparative justice for the enslavement of Afrikan people. The project builds on the strengths of an existing collaboration between academics and activists, funded by an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) research networking grant (May 2017-Feb 2019), in recognition of the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent which has led to the establishment of the International Network of Scholars and Activists for Afrikan Reparations (INOSAAR).


Call to Action

Do we have the courage and determination of our Ancestors that we pour libation to?

Do we have what it takes to take their works to another level?

The time has long since come for us to be making great sacrifice to build on the legacy of the few freedoms and privileges we have today as a result of the efforts of our indomitable Ancestors.

We are calling on YOU to join us making our quest for reparatory justice louder, more visible, more dread and terrible in the eyes of the Maangamizi Criminals who continue their actions right under our noses. Are you ready to enact your #Reparations2020 Vision? Leading up to the Reparations March on 1st Mosiah (August) we intend to bring it to them on a monthly basis – and we need you! More details will be released in the near future but firstly you are advised to attend the meeting in Brixton on 23rd January to find out more contact
