‘We Need Minister Farrakhan In This Country!’

Black activists in the United Kingdom are vowing not to be silent and are preparing to fight against what they argue is a blatant assault on the rights of that country’s Black citizens to decide their own destiny and determine for themselves who they have a right to listen to and seek guidance from. And Blacks in the UK, want to hear from the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam.

These sentiments were expressed in the aftermath of a decision to prohibit a videotaped message by the beloved leader from being broadcast during the African International Day of Action, a cultural gathering to promote unity and upliftment. The event was co-sponsored by the Rastafari Movement UK and the Nation of Islam’s London mosque and was held at Kennington Park.

Allow the Mosque but not the messenger?
