ALL DIAMONDS ARE BLOOD DIAMONDS! Africa's Resources in African Hands!
Saturday February 23rd, 3-5pm
@ First Church in Jamaica Plain
6 Eliot St, Jamaica Plain MA
Wheelchair Accessible

This event is a call to action for white people to return diamonds and 
other stolen resources back to African people as a form of reparations. 
All Diamonds are Blood Diamonds is a national speaking tour by the Uhuru 
Solidarity Movement, under the leadership of the African People’s 
Socialist Party.

Long revered as rare, benign gems symbolizing the ideals of beauty and 
everlasting love, diamonds are the desired gift for engagements, 
anniversaries, graduations, or simply as an expression of love. Diamonds 
are thought to be the makings of heirlooms, something to pass down from 
generation to generation with ever appreciating value.

These myths about the diamond trade, however, couldn’t be further from 
the truth. This is a look into the reality of diamonds and the real 
price of this seemingly innocent stone for millions of African people 
and others who live on the other end of the equation.

Keynote: Yejide Orunmila, President of the African National Women's 
Organization of the African People's Socialist Party
Featured: Halley Murray, North Regional Coordinator of the Uhuru 
Solidarity Movement; Chair of USM Boston
