LOST-FOUND NATION OF ISLAM/AFRODESCENDANT NATION HOLDING REPARATIONS FOR SLAVERY PETITION SIGNING EVENTS
HOUSTON, TX, February 2, 2014 – Lost-Found Nation of Islam/Afrodescendant Nation (LFNOI/AN), a trailblazer in the fight for reparations for slavery, is holding an event to benefit human rights for Afrodescendants (descendants of Transatlantic Slave Trade victims) and the work to claim reparations for slavery.
Interested parties will gain a background understanding of the reparations petition initiative during a radio interview of Ambassador-At-Large of the LFNOI/AN, Minister Omar Hassan. The radio interview, held on 90.1 KPFT on Sunday, February 2, 2014 at 9 p.m. Central on Dr. Obadike’s show, can be heard here: http://archive.kpft.org/ .
Houston and surrounding area residents will then hear keynote addresses by Mr. Ambassador Hassan and local Black community leaders on Saturday, February 8th from 5 to 8:00 p.m. Central at Shape Center, 3815 Live Oak, Houston, Texas 77004. Reparations petitions will also be made available to Black, “African American”, Afrodescendants who want the opportunity to demonstrate their desire to help claim reparations for 400+ years of plantation slavery and its lingering effects (racism) within the Americas.
As “minorities” in the western hemisphere, Black, “African American”, Afrodescendants have not enjoyed full equality before the law due to the total destruction of identity since the Transatlantic Slave Trade, which was the loss of this nation of people’s identity internationally. The goal of the petition drive is to gather 50,000 signatures in support of reparations for Afrodescendants.
Black, “African American”, Afrodescendants unable to attend the reparations for slavery petition signing event in person may sign the petition at: http://chn.ge/1i3IPsL .
The Lost-Found Nation of Islam is a nonprofit organization that works to claim 100% freedom, justice, and equality for Black, “African American”, Afrodescendant peoples throughout the Americas. The Lost-Found Nation of Islam/Afrodescendant Nation is a non-territorially based sovereign government of, by, and for Afrodescendants constituted on May 26, 2011.

For over 400 years, more than 15 million men, women, and children were the victims of the tragic Transatlantic Slave trade…one of the darkest chapters in human history.
Today, 250 million men, women, and children are emancipating themselves from the lingering effects of plantation slavery in the U.S., Caribbean and Latin America by exercising self-determination with the United Nations recognized term, “Afrodescendant”.
However, Minister Najee Muhammad of the Lost-Found Afrodescendant Nation of Islam poses the question, “What Good Is Freedom, Without Justice, Human Rights and Reparations?” On November 16, 2013, Minister Muhammad will answer this question. See the flyer below…
