Millions More Promote Unity

Washington, DC – (October 15, 2005) More than a million men, women and children gathered on the national mall, held hands and pledged to restore lives, rebuild communities and repair families. The gathering, lead by the Honorable Lewis Farrakhan, who issued a call to action to the African American community, included a wide-ranging alliance of national and international leaders, politicians, entertainers, sports personalities and groups who participated in a program that spoke to unity, spiritual values, education, economic development, political power, reparations, the prison industrial complex, health, artistic/cultural development and peace. The message for the day and the movement was unity and inclusive of all people in the struggle to improve the conditions of the poor and dispossessed.

"God has smiled upon us today with this beautiful gathering of our people," said the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, national convener of the Million More Movement. "This is the beginning of a new movement where all of our brothers and sisters, black, brown, red and white, will work collectively to address the many issues that affect our people and the poor in this country. We must pull together and use our God given talents and resources to improve the devastating conditions of our people and lift them to a higher level. Only when we pull together will we realize the greatness that God has in store for African Americans."

Minister Farrakhan, who presented a platform for strengthening the black community, provided instructive solutions to the many issues laid out by the array of speakers who spoke before him. Farrakhan challenged the audience to make the movement a priority and warned that the real work begins after the day’s event. He called for the black community to join forces with other groups across the country, and around world such as the Native Americans, Latinos, Africans and the American who have similar life conditions.

"It is the strength of unity that will make the difference in how we respond to the ills of our community and, make right what has been wrong for years, said Minster Farrakhan.

Against the backdrop of the devastating aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Minister Louis Farrakhan presented a protocol for action to begin the process of resolving many of the problems facing the black and poor communities. The plan included the development of a Ministry of Trade of Commerce, Ministry of Development of Africa and the Caribbean, Ministry of Justice, Ministry of Information, Ministry of Health and Human Services, Ministry of Science and Technology, Ministry of Education, and Ministry of Agriculture.

Minister Farrakhan cautioned the audience that the journey to address the collective problems is not short or easy, but African Americans must unite and commit to the movement that pledge to stay together for the long haul. The minister ended the day by joining forces with all people regardless of race, social status, economic status and educational background. He left the people with a message of reassurance stating, "United we can solve our problems and divided we have nothing."
