    The demonstrations call on people to:

     Boycott all diamonds - all diamonds are blood diamonds!
     Donate your diamonds to the Uhuru Movement - for African-led development programs for renewable energy and water purification in West Africa.
     Support reparations for African people
     Recognize that Africa and all its resources are the birthright of African people everywhere!
