In the fantasy of Afreekan Unity

To the Honorable Gentleman and Gentlewomen of the African Union and the Leon H. Sullivan Summit:

We, the African American descendent's of African Slaves, with much enthusiasm, pride, and hope, support the proposal from the African Union for full dual citizenship for African Americans in Africa. We believe that such a proposal is long overdue, and see the signing of the proposal into law as the most important step in the progress of Africa and the African American Community.

We are aware that the proposal has been in the making for nearly four years now, and we urge the African Union and the leaders of the Summit to complete the legislation that will grant African Americans legal citizenship throughout Africa, creating a concrete social,....

"I dream of the realization of the unity of Africa, whereby its leaders combine in their efforts to solve the problems of this continent. I dream of our vast deserts, of our forests, of all our great wildernesses. "--Nelson Mandela.

The petition link has changed.

I believe it is a long overdue challenge and endeavor.

On the site are many petitions. How do this one get from being listed to being legislated. Do we also send it to Congress? Directly to the African Union or to the United Nations?

Will dual citizenship cost us our citizen rights here? I will do some research. I do believe America does not not want people to have dual citizenship rights and will take away our rights here to vote.

Would an alternative be for Africa to extend us dipomatic citizenship as ambassadors and we get votes and say in affairs of how our tax dollars we want to contribute is spent in Africa?

I have NO answers to the questions you posed. I RE~cieved the link in an email..followed it and signed the petition. It seems as if the African Union along with Afreekans in amerikkka are RE~sponsible for drafting and moving forward this process which has been in the making for some time now. I was impressed with the fact that I was asked to "sign" my name..not just the electronic type. Did you sign the petition and actually "sign" your name which was then placed on a badge of sorts. It was very 'official' like.

It seems this petition is designed to address all that you raised....Congress, A.U. and the U.N.

Also, I have not finished reading the information on the site so can't really speak to the other thoughts which came up for you. I do appriciate your sharing your thoughts and the addtional research you did.

I just ready to GET any means available!
