The escalation of U.S. military aid to Africa since September 11, 2001 is climaxing this October when U.S. African Command (AFRICOM) becomes the newest military Unified Combatant Command.Mark P. Fancher, spokesperson and Chair of International Section of the National Conference of Black Lawyers (NCBL), will discuss the NCBL’s public position and legal work against AFRICOM.Speaking for the NCBL, he has stated, “We believe that AFRICOM is nothing more than a device to ensure that the U.S. oil industry will continue to have unfettered access to Africa’s vast supplies of oil…If anyone in Africa interferes with U.S. oil operations, we suspect that they will be given the terrorist label and then targeted for military attacks.”Fancher is a writer, activist, human rights lawyer, and the author of The Splintering of Global Africa – Capitalism’s War Against Pan-Africanism.To learn more about this event, contact dccatholicworker@gmail.com.
