International Campaign to Ban Landmines

The ICBL calls for:
An international ban on the use, production, stockpiling, and sale, transfer, or export of antipersonnel landmines.

The 1997 treaty banning the use, production, stockpiling, and transfer of antipersonnel landmines has been ratified by 118 countries and signed by 140 . Since the treaty became law, countries may no longer sign it, they must accede. Those countries which have already signed, must still ratify in order to be fully bound by the ban provisions.

Steve Biko Memorial

Drawing Steve Biko

Drawing Steve Biko

Biko, Stephen (1946-1977), South African political leader of the late 1960s, who became known as a martyr for black nationalism upon his death in prison. Biko was born in King William's Town, in what is now the province of Eastern Cape. He entered the University of Natal in 1966 to study medicine. In 1972 Biko was expelled for his political activities, which were directed at the white-minority government of South Africa and its restrictive racial policies, known as apartheid. Biko sought to liberate the minds of Africans, arguing that liberation grows out of "the realization by the Blacks that the most potent weapon in the hands of the oppressor is the mind of the oppressed." He was one of the founders of the Black Consciousness Movement (BCM) in the late 1960s. Students were in the forefront of the BCM and in 1968 they also founded the South African Students' Organization, which operated as a black group separate from the white-run National Union of South African Students. Biko served as the black organizations's first president. He also was instrumental in starting other black groups. In 1972 a coalition of more than 70 black organizations established the Black People's Convention, and Biko was named the honorary president. The South African government initially tolerated the BCM and some of the other black organizations, but it began cracking down on them in the early 1970s. Biko was banned from many activities in 1973 and arrested several times. In August 1977 Biko was arrested again and was severely beaten by the police while in custody. He lapsed into a coma and died within a month of his arrest.

Rooms, Personals & Oldies is an Interactive Community of Resources for African-Americans Worldwide with free Email, Chat Rooms & Personals. It claims it has put all of the BEST African American resources available on the web into one easy to navigate community. Its primary goal is " Uplifting the Black People". Think about how they struggled, for over 400 years, trying to gain equality in this world. Their ancestors embarked upon their journey here, most in the holds of slave ships, after being promised a better life!


"The abject poverty makes people very susceptible to the likes of al Qaeda and ... so I think, if you look at Africa, there's potentially another 10 Afghanistans in Africa. Are we going to leave them the way we left Afghanistan? And is it cheaper to actually prevent the fires from happening than putting them out? I can tell you by a factor of a hundred it is" (source: Bono)

In 1999, the U2 lead-singer got involved with Jubilee 2000, now known as Drop the Debt, a London-based coalition of academics and activists who equated Third World debt with slavery. In the course of his work with the campaign Bono has met with Presidents, Prime Ministers and the Pope to get attention for the issue. He relishes the incongruity of a rock star talking about world policy, but he backs it up by knowing his stuff. He reads economics tomes and did some unofficial studying at Harvard. "I think that politicians are attracted at first by the celebrity," says Harvard economics guru Jeffrey Sachs, who has huddled with Bono and the Pope on the debt issue. "But once they meet him, they find that he is an outstandingly capable interlocutor." Senator Jesse Helms met with Bono to talk about starving children in Africa and ended up weeping—marking the first time a rocker has inspired an emotion in the Senator from North Carolina other than perhaps outrage.

Philip Emeagwali

Philip Emeagwali
In Africa, Emeagwali is synonymous with computer and Internet and his name has become immortalized in popular African ballads. In a televised speech, as president, Bill Clinton extolled him as "one of the great minds of the Information Age" and used the phrase "another Emeagwali" to describe children with the potential to become computer geniuses. Born on August 23, 1954 in what was then colonial Nigeria, Emeagwali's father was a nurse's aide and his 16-year-old mother was a housekeeper. With the aura of a renaissance man, Philip Emeagwali talks about technology, politics, black history and the future. He sees a future in which people will be digitized, half-human and half-machine. Emeagwali is described as an inspiration to African youths who wonder what life can hold for them when the odds are stacked against them. A measure of his influence is that, each week, 10,000 students use his website to complete their school homework. The United Nations inducted him into its Gallery of Prominent Refugees in recognition of his successful journey from a refugee camp to the highest intellectual podium.

Fair Trade

Banner Freedom
Products like coffee, tea and chocolate, that we in the north have come to depend on, are produced in the warmer climates of the South. The prices paid for these commodities have not risen in real terms over the last forty years, whilst the value of fertilisers, pesticides and machinery (imported from richer countries) has increased substantially. On top of this the market price of commodities frequently drops below the cost of producing them. Consequently many of the people who grow these crops are having to work harder and longer for less money.

Jane Goodall (Institute)

The young Jane Goodall
... Dr. Louis Leakey decided that Jane Goodall was the unique individual he was looking for to begin a study of wild chimpanzees on the shore of Lake Tanganyika. At first, British authorities resisted the idea of a young woman living among wild animals in Africa.

In the summer of 1960, 26-year-old Jane Goodall arrived on the shore of Lake Tanganyika in East Africa to study the area's chimpanzee population. Although it was unheard of for a woman to venture into the wilds of the African forest, the trip meant the fulfillment of Jane Goodall's childhood dream.
