Greetings International Facilitator and Madam Secretariat of the Sixth Region Diaspora Caucus,

I wish I could be in better spirits today in sending this communication but sadly after reviewing  this video sent form our emissary, women of all ages of Africa hearts have become harden and torn. I am requesting a report from SDRC Europe in the matters involving the French Police filmed dragging African Immigrant women & taking away their babies during a protest that occurred last week July 31 2010. Please view the video and if SDRC Europe is not aware (I know that they are), please forward this to them.

Please be advised. This video is beyond graphic. All who watch this please stand firm. I as a woman, Afrikan, and Black could only watch this once!!! And when I saw the sisters being dragged while lying on top of her babies and another dead and pregnant, I had to hold myself in my own arms for comfort. Please ask SDRC Europe if they have investigated the cause of this callous act carried out by the French authorities, who gave the orders to their police to carry out such actions in the manner in which it was handled, where are the women and children now and how can we in the Americas and elsewhere in the Diaspora assist?

This and other types of inhumane acts are taking place on our people globally because we are not protected by the Union if we are living outside of Africa. Without a strong African Diaspora government we as grassroots/community organizations are left to defend our people with varying results. In the AU as defined in its Constitutive Act, Member States must promote and protect human rights according to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights. Seeing the video, it appears these mothers are continental Africans so must likely their state in Africa are AU members and charges against the French authorities can be made through the AU’s , African Court Of Justice/ The African Court On Human And Peoples’ Rights.

We must strengthen the AU in an investigation of the French authorities concerning this vile matter conducted out on their people living within French boarders. Recognizing the the 25th Africa-France Summit, a two-day gathering “aimed at developing better business relations between” African and France, occurring this past April 2010 in French city of Nice were, 38 African leaders and 250 business executives gathered, discussing on “the problems of climate change, piracy, terrorism” as well as “the demand of African countries’ for a bigger say in the U.N. Security Council and the G20 forum” — All Headline News June 2 10—-, explanations must be given on how such of a inhumane act against humanity was made possible on African people in French territory.

Ambassador Francois Zimeray, France’s human rights ambassador must give an open statement concering this event and SDRC Europe can charge his office to co-lead the investigations injunction with the AU.

Our office will be sending this to the African Union in Washing D.C, New York, Addis Abba, global partners and clergy to gain awareness. Please if any sees this as a noble cause to take action, you are encouraged to do so by whatever capabilities your may have.

Most Respect

Sister Ivory Ann Black II Woletta Sellassie
