    HOW MANY MORE MEETINGS BEFORE WE GET A RESULT

    Yes people, yet another conference
    Yes people, yet another meeting to end all meetings
    Yes people., this one will be different, this meeting will change things.
    Yes people, another open agenda conference about "liberation"

    What came out of the last one?:peace:
    Where is the schedule online?
    Where is the minutes?
    What was the outcome?
    What do we do next, based upon the meeting?
    How come we always meet in some White mans property?
    Uh huh how many more meetings to we get a result?
    Did we build a well, start a university, fund a child's education?
    So excited about yet another meeting, working 2 years just to get to a meeting as if a meeting was a result.
    At the meeting everyone was shouting, no one was listening
    One man stood up and didnt like what he heard so he said "You see me, you see me... I gone from here"
    Sister Baku Osamba Bambatu Tu Rah came 2 hours late but at least she poured libation,

    How do we seperate the time wasters and jokers from the real deal. Who else has so many meetings and seminars and conferences about nothing. How often do you think Jews meet to make sure they keep running hollywood. far less than you think.

    How can one be an advisor of business development, if you do not run a real business? Many have incredible names from every corner of Africa such Shabazz Akhanteton Mandela, yet when you see their passport it is John Patrick. Calling people to solutions of development which seem not to work anywhere in their own life, yet they are experts on these subjects. They deal with issues of empowerment from council flats and dole offices. Most are upcoming poets and all have an album coming out. Every website shows that they run 10 different organizations.

    WEBSITES (who doesnt have one these daze)
    But every website is down, "under construction", 3 pages of info on History copied from wikipedia, full of 12 different fonts and 24 color scheme, plus big youtube videos and CAPITALIZATION EVERYWHERE like THIS. MAn

    TANGIBLE VERSES INTANGIBLE
    If you call people to a hair show of Natural African hair, that is tangible and real development. If you wrote a well researched book and published it; that is tangible. If you have a School; that is tangible. If you have a conscious film screening, where people pay money and sit down and watch a film; that is tangible. Now people can respond to these things because they have clear objectives.

    MEETING TO DO WHAT?
    However meetings about Nada do not build confidence, what are we meeting about again? Are we meeting to build a bridge or a university, or a art centre? What is the conference about? Yes we need to have papers and seminars but they need direction so they do not become ends in themselves.

    Fix yourself, you know who you are

    until those in African , who profess to have the people's concern at heart, actually poll the masses in regards to their geivances,

    the circus of planning , to plan to make a plan to plan a new plan to make a plan that will make the old plan a better plan to plan for the future, nothing will get done

    solution?

    i need a solution, cuz just went to a meeting that was suppose to do all of that. But Nada. One sister told me she was not going b/c tired of years of disappointment. So now the problem is even if we did have a REAL meeting on Pan-Africanism, many will not show up because they say "oh not another meeting". Like crying wolf.

    What do we do? Cuz we do need to meet to plan, but...

    The meetings will continue as long as we go in as a self for me thinking
    to plan for self and not a hold as one

    Da solution is us understanding our collectively means and plan as a whole to change !

    how to do a successful meeting

    Now that might be true

    But how do we actually do that?

    How do we set-up meaningful debates and seminars and conferences that actually achieve something?

    Because if you go and ask these jokers about their meeting they would never think they were wasting peoples time, they would actually think they are revolutionary and progressive.
