The webinar will feature first-hand reports from WILPF women describing what effects AFRICOM is having on their respective nations: Joy Onyesoh, the President of WILPF international will speak about Nigeria; Sylvie Ndongmo, the Africa Region representative of WILPF, will speak about Cameroon; MarieClaire Faray, currently living in the UK, will speak about the Democratic Republic of the Congo; and Christine Odera, Commonwealth Youth Peace Ambassador Network- Kenya Country Coordinator (CYPAN) , will speak about Kenya.   

 

Other featured speakers include writer and author Margaret Kimberley, representing the Black Alliance for Peace, and their initiative: Out of Africa:  Shut Down AFRICOM; and investigative journalist Amanda Sperber, who has reported widely on Somalia.

 

World BEYOND War has volunteered to host the zoom meeting, since they can accommodate 1,000 callers.  Arrangements have been made to live-stream the event on the WILPF US Facebook page.  It will also subsequently be uploaded to the WILPF US YouTube channel.
