The Millions More Movement (Million Man March 10-Year Commemoration), called for and led by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan will take place Oct. 15, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. The Millions More Movement will focus heavily on Hurricane Katrina, justice for its victims, and a staging ground for Black Activists and Organizations that are working to respond to this disaster. Since August, Minister Farrakhan has been on a very successful 'sold out'' 23-city tour. Minister Farrakhan recently has claimed that the breached levees in New Orleans may have been intentionally sabotaged. The Millions More Movement supports this contention and calls for a Federal investigation into this matter. Lawsuits against the State of Louisiana and the Federal Government will also be discussed at this news conference.

This Wednesday, Oct. 5, 12 p.m. there will be a News Conference -- Millions More Movement National Co-Conveners and Hurricane Katrina Activists, Speak Out on Support for Millions More Movement

The conference will be held at the National Press Club, 529 14th Street N.W. (Murrow Room), Washington, D.C.

CONTACT: Attorney Malik Z. Shabazz (Washington D.C.), Millions More Movement National co-convener, chairman of the New Black Panther Party, 202-369-9986 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

In addition, the Oct. 5 news conference will issue a response to the racist comments of former Secretary of Education William Bennett who proposed genocide, or "aborting all Black Babies" as a remedy to America's crime problem. Specific action will be announced to deal with William Bennett and his financial sponsors. See the post on this and hear the audio from Bill Bennett – HERE. These comments have enraged everyone from hip-hop to capital hill.

The historic Million Man March, which drew nearly two million Black men to the steps of Congress, brought about an unprecedented wave of activism in the Black Community throughout America. The Million Man March 10-year commemoration has brought together a powerful and diverse coalition of leadership and organizations that are seriously concerned about the plight of Black people in America and worldwide. The Millions More Movement, and its ambitious agenda, is shaping up to be a massive gathering/movement and a real answer to the critical challenges facing our community. Women are invited to the gathering which will include all sectors of the Black national and international community. The focus will be Hurricane Katrina and Reparations

The march will also focus on War on Iraq, which is claiming thousands of casualties and leaving many severely injured. Within the Black Community the War on Iraq has not gained popularity, but rather has left many angry and dissatisfied.

The Supreme Court has shifted even further to the right with the confirmation of Judge John Roberts as a Supreme Court Justice. Violence, Education, the Prison Industrial Complex, Economics, and a decline in moral values in our society are all key issues of this 10-year anniversary.

Organizers are firm in their contention that this is not just a march, but the beginning of a serious permanent movement that will not only answer the problems associated with Katrina, but many other ills affecting our community.

The Millions More Movement is supported by: The Progressive National Baptist Convention, The Urban League, Reverend Al Sharpton, The New Black Panther Party, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, The Congressional Black Caucus, Reverend Willie F. Wilson, Nation Of Islam, Russell Simmons, National Black United Front, Hip Hop Artist/Producer Kanye West, songstress Eryka Badu, Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, the National Council of Negro Women, D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams, a litany of Unions, Elected Officials, Pastors, grassroots activists and organizations. The Millions More Movement will be the largest display of unity around a specific policy agenda that the Black community has ever experienced.

Shabazz, is a well known Washington civil rights lawyer, leader of the New Black Panther Party and a founding member of BLACK ACTIVISTS ORGANIZED COALITION ON KATRINA.
