    How can we? How dare we?

    United States of Africa: fierce debates over new federation of African states tops AU Summit agenda.

    Dateline Berlin: July 3-4, 2007
    AU Summit in Accra debates forming a new USA on the eve of America's Independence Day celebrations

    After the much touted China-Africa Summit in Beijing last November and the May 2007 African Development Bank Board of Governors annual meeting in Shanghai, and the G8 Summit in Heiligendamm, Germany Africa's leaders are getting down to business back on their home turf, Africa. The 9th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the African Union (AU Summit 2007 in Accra, Ghana) is turning out to be anything but another ordinary meeting of the continents 53 heads of state.

    The international press is reporting about fierce closed-door debates between key camps of African leaders over the formation of a United States of Africa, a pan-African federation of all 53 African countries to help the continent better deal with its own challenges and problems via a unified central government and to meet the challenges of fair trade in an increasingly globalized world. There is plenty of criticism coming from various domestic and international quarters that Africa’s leaders must first deal with serious crisis and conflicts raging on the African continent and begin to find workable solutions for severe problems within their own countries before any talk begins in earnest about a United States of Africa.

    What is also interesting are the historical origins of this debate and the passionate arguments being presented from prominent African figures such as the flamboyant Libyan leader Muammar al-Gaddafi, Nigeria’s new President Umaru YarAdua, AU Chairperson and President of Ghana John Kufour, the AU Commission Chairman Alpha Oumar Konare, and the beloved world figure Archbishop Desmond Mpilo Tutu.

    The African Union failed the crucial test at the Accra, Ghana African Union Summit.

    While Africa saw the dangers of this and sought to address the problem through the Pan-African News Agency, perennial dependency saw Westerners compromise the agency with their ruinous conditional funds. To this day, PANA has failed to live up to expectations, which is why Africa continues relying on Western news agencies. Any wonder then, that at the just-ended AU Summit in Accra, Ghana, Western news agencies were given royal treatment. The organizers saw it fit to give Western media organisations unfettered access into the Accra International Conference Centre, while African journalists were barred, save for those from the host country, of course.

    In fact, the officials in charge of media liaison read out the names of the agencies from a list they had, and did not even have time to hear the protests of the African media personnel present. African journalists had no choice but to picket the Conference Centre to present a strongly worded petition to the General Assembly.

    What this simply showed was that the organisers were keen to ensure that the West was kept well-informed of deliberations, while Africans, whose lives were bound to be changed by the decisions reached in Accra, were kept largely in the dark.

    Whichever reason one wants to believe, in Accra, the AU failed one major test that would have confirmed it was man enough to face the Western bullies on equal footing.

    However, observes news analyst Omar D. Kalinge-Nnyago in Rwanda's New Times, many Africans, "including myself...want to know whether Gaddafi wants to be Africa's first president. If yes, I would be very scared." Kalinge-Nnyago points out that Gaddafi seized power in Libya in 1969 and, since then, "has ruled his desert nation...with an iron fist, allowing no political freedoms, no elections, and no press freedom...." Such a man, he warns, "cannot be the champion of an African state of the 21st century."
    In fact, one Ghanaian student could not have put it any better: "We should not delay the Union government in Africa much longer, for we already have the President, Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe.

    USA4USAfrica Founder Mark Wood [​IMG]came to Los Angeles from Milwaukee with hopes of the typical music and movie fame as a "Jimi Hendrix - Bootsy Collins" styled 1 man band in the tradition of Prince. This adventure that started at age 20, follows his path from the various companies he worked which connected him to meet many of the famous in music, television and film and realize that fame without meaning and a purpose for the betterment of humanity is, while comfortable, is meaningless in the "Big Picture" of Life.

    A chance meeting with one of the most known living people on earth, Muhammad Ali and their discussions over 3 separate visits, not about boxing, but religions, humanity, philosophy and the state of black people in the world today and how they got there triggered my personal meaning of purpose.

    After several e-mail's and postings to African government, media and educational web sites and search engines, from 1996 to 1998 Regarding a call to begin the grass roots of a formal United States of Africa, the baton was picked by Khadafi of Libya and was covered at CNN.com in June of 1999.

    What makes the idea of a "United States of Africa" different from that of existing, multi-nation, cooperative organizations past or present is that it would be a governmental entity with policy-formulating and law-making powers, its own institutions and all the trappings and legal jurisdictions of a state. Presumably, it could or would take the form of a federation of member states, like the European Union or the U.S. Perhaps it would opt for a president who would serve, as in the U.S., as both the head of an elected government and the head of state. If it chose a parliamentary system of government, it might opt for a president to serve as its head of state (of the federation) and for a prime minister to serve as the head of its elected government.
    [​IMG]
    And, one may even look forward to an expected debate as to who then would become that first President of Africa?

    The USA for USAfrica has never endorsed Khadafi for the leadership of the first United States of Africa, but does acknowledge him as being the first leader to react to the first e-mail's from the USA for USAfrica and get the first world wide press and recognition regarding a United States of Africa in the modern era as well as his bringing together the year 2000 conference on the matter.

    Our Mandate:
    The formation of a United States of Africa must immediately be brought into public debate worldwide and among Africans themselves.
    The position and purpose of the USA for USAfrica coalition is to lobby for Mr. Kofi Annan to be elected as the first President of a United States of Africa ...

    Why Kofi Annan should be nominated and elected as the 1st President of The United States of Africa

    The USA4USAfrica since it's inception on the Internet in 1996 has backed the idea of Kofi Annan as the top choice as the 1st President of a United States of Africa by the end of his 2nd term in the U.N. the time has now come....
    I truly see the vision of Kofi Annan leading the first United Africa, may you be wise and just.
    "The time has come for me, in my UN capacity, to bid you farewell," he said. "But as I lay down my global responsibilities, I can promise to devote myself more than ever to the welfare of this beloved continent," said Annan.

    First and most shocking ( to my dismay ) the major media outlets do not and actually will not give Africans credit for BEING INTELLIGENT ENOUGH to UNIFY... seriously.

    •Last week he was reported as announcing his availability as a candidate to become the first prime minister of a United States of Africa. In this exclusive interview with allAfrica.com, N'Dour paints his vision of a unified and industrious Africa, an issue currently the subject of debate at the African Union Summit in Accra.
    Despite agreement on creating what has been called a United States of Africa, the summit exposed major differences over the desired pace of change, with Libya's Moamer Kadhafi leading the push for a union government, complete with a foreign and defence minister, to be in place by the start of next year.

    Others, such as Nigerian President Umaru Yar'Adua argued against a fast-track approach, saying integration should be best reached by first concentrating on regional cooperation.

    America's black media leaders should be ashamed of themselves for not getting any info on the formation of a United States of Africa to african americans... 99% of them did not even no this event was about to happen!

    THIS is THE Moment of the start of a New African History and we are depending on THESE leaders to put aside their fears and doubts and for the 1st time in their political careers, to actually LEAD the African people to a new era...

    As the press at large have finally caught on to the fact that Africa can unite this july into a united federation of nation-states, the main thing they want to report on is that Africans are feeling doubt on following through on their greatest opportunity.

    In other words, they are afraid to save themselves and join together as one nation. That they would rather debate and argue among themselves as they always have done throughout history than dare to see a vision of a united Africa and take advantage the opportunity act on it.

    I assure you, if the African leaders do not take heed and insure the destiny of all Africans by taking the step to unify this July...

    That they will NEVER have this opportunity again in their history.
    Africa will give up on itself and the self imposed destruction of the remainder of Africa will speed up exponentially.

    Africa has found a new piggy bank in the form of China and will put it's collective self in hock again to a new master after the G-8 nations forgave most of their debt and opened the door of opportunity for the nations of Africa to unite as one collective nation.

    A united Africa will not need to borrow, it will create it's own economy in the building of it's united infrastructure, payment of taxes to the new national treasury from the nations currently stealing it's resources who will now have to pay fair market value and attract investment from around the world because a united Africa is a sound business proposition and opportunity.

    "True compassion," Martin Luther King declared, "is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring."

    Call for referendum on Africa Union Government
    Posted on: 14-Aug-2007
    http://www.myjoyonl ine.com/politics/200708/7589.asp

    The World Pan-Africanism Council (WOPAC) and the All-African People's Organisation (AAPO) have called for a referendum on the grand debate for a union government for Africa.

    A press statement issued by WOPAC and AAPO in Accra on Tuesday said the referendum would give mass participation to Africans to discuss continental unity.

    The two organisations stressed: "We unequivocally call for the full involvement, participation and affirmation of the people of Africa on the Union Government question."

    The three-page statement signed by Mr. Benjamin Anyagre, Executive Committee Member of WOPAC on behalf of the two organisations and made available to the Ghana News Agency, expressed dissatisfaction about the inability of the African Union (AU) to clench continental unity, at the Ninth Summit of the Union in Accra.

    "This historical assignment for political and socio-economic unity of Africa in the spirit of a free and fair referendum by universal adult suffrage, will involve actively all people, irrespective of status in society, race, colour, tribe or religion," the statement said.

    The document said it was wrong for only 53 Heads of State to decide on the future government for Africa for the over 830 million people on the Continent.

    It said a referendum would end 50 years of debate on Union Government of Africa.

    "We as Pan-African Mass Movement, in our wisdom and principle, state categorically, the position that there is no need to further delay the processes of an African Union government now."

    The statement said the AU meeting failed to satisfactorily debate the issue of strategically re-position the freedom and development of Africa in the contest of unity.

    The two Pan African organisations called on the AU to feature the Continental African Union issue during the 10th AU Summit in Ethiopia, in January 2008.

    The statement called on stakeholders to marshal all efforts as a historical responsibility to safeguard the future of Africa and free the people from poverty, hunger, diseases and possible social extermination.

    Yeah. But, what's the point? Thanks for educating the people. We can never have too much education about Africa, especially the Unification Process. And, there key names and words that will enable me to folow through. But, I do not see how African leaders are "failing"

    The last Au Summit issed the Accra Declaration. This is a clear success and step in the right direction. The Pan-African Parliament is up and running with electins planned for 2009. The African Unification Front is organizing the political parties. The Front for the Unification and Development of Africa and Arabia is preparing to merge with the AUF, and implement a continent-wide Economic Development program. An Infrastructure Development Fund has been put in place. The call is out for oridinary people to kick out stupid leaders who refuse to advance Unity. Seldom has so much progress been made is such a short period of time.

    Sure, much work is left to be done. But, the work is going forward and much progress is being made. This is the new stage of the African revolution. Join us. The time for talk is over.

    Questions:

    The USA set up US Military forces in Afrika.

    Is that Afrikan leaders failure to allow the US Military to set up bases in Afrika, when they should be running every evil that is in Afrika out of Afrika?

    Is having the european Only human flesh mind-set, and not our Once Divine mind-set not Afrikan leaders faliture?

    We are all interconnected, and we all fail when we are not in our once Truthful Divine mind-set.

    Is to continue to embrace the religious poison Afrikans/Afrikans leaders failures?

    When we do not have Divine truthful leaders in leadership we can expect failure...and then some.

    We need enough Divine truthful people among us to know the difference between the Human Being Flesh leaders and the Divine Truthful leaders, and we the people who are in our Divine right mind-set select that Divine leader to be the leader.

    Just asking some questions.

    A Nation rule and reigned by the Flesh Only will DIEHARD.
    A Nation ruled and reigned by the Divine Spirit will live.

    Peace abdurratin....

    Education WAS the point! And...I'm glad you learned something that will enable you to follow through.

    I see that Afreekan leaders HAVE failed the people at least those who live a life of luxury while the vast majority it the citizens live in abject poverty. Those "leaders" who have supported the united states agenda which supports the continued colonization of the land and minds of the people.

    that's it for now..have some other things to do.

    I heard a rumor that Liberia will host the new Bush milittary plan for Africa, the so-called Africa Command. They even have an African general in charge. And, of course, there is Con-Artist Rice's stink all over this foolishness. Can anyone confrim or deny that Liberia is the only African country to break ranks from the United Front?

    If we can confrim that Sister President has betrayed us, we must seriously organized to get rid of her. The time has come when we will no longer tolerate betrayal by our elected and un-elected so-called leaders. Power is in our hands. All we need to do is exercise our Black Power.

    Beloved abdurratln:

    abdurratln: Can anyone confrim or deny that Liberia is the only African country to break ranks from the United Front?

    I heard that too, and if I should run across the source of that information, I will post it.

    Another thing beloved abdurratln, we can talk about Black Power until we are blue in the face.

    We need to over stand the Divine energy in us in that Power we claim we are.

    It is clear we do not over stand that Divine energy source because we would be more Active/Activated/Activist, NOW.

    A light bulb power will not light up without the energy source.

    Energy, Power, Spirit (All) One.

    Until we KNOW ALL that we are made of, we will live DIM lives, that which is disconnected from the Divine Energy Source. That Divine Energy Source is what makes us the Divine gods/goddesses meteor we need to be.

    Thanks for allowing me to share.
