Re: The Murder of George Floyd, Police Violence and Racism in the United States

The Kenya Diaspora Alliance (KDA) represents Kenyans in the international diaspora including over 100,000 who are residents, studying, or working in the USA. The Bandung Conference is an international NGO based in Kenya. The Africa Diaspora Alliance (AfDA–under formation) is an amalgam of a number of transnational and historical diaspora organizations. The Society of Black Lawyers (SBL) based in the United Kingdom has actively been engaged in international human rights that protested the beating of Rodney King to the US Ambassador in London when the police officers were acquitted of his assault at first instance. The SBL met to show our solidarity with the Deputy Assistant U.S. Attorney General, The Right Honourable Eric Holder, on the morning in August 1998 that the US Embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam were bombed.All of the above organizations and their affiliates have a long history of fighting for justice and human rights around the world. We wish to bring home to the United States Government our deep concern with the failure to protect the life of George Floyd and many other African Americans over the years………………..
