The African Union Condemns Racists Practice Against Blacks in America

Musa Faki, Chairperson of the African Union Commission, strongly condemned the killing of George Floyd, an African American, who was in the United States of America by law enforcement officers.

He expressed his sincere condolences to his family, referring to the historic decision of the Organization of African Unity on racial discrimination in the United States of America, which was taken by African heads of state and government at the first meeting of the General Assembly of the Organization of African Unity in Cairo in July 1964.

He emphasized that the Chairperson of the African Union Commission rejects the continuing discriminatory practices against black citizens in the United States of America. He urged the American authorities to intensify their efforts to ensure the complete elimination of all forms of discrimination on the basis of race or ethnic origin. This was stated by Ambassador Namira Negm, the legal adviser of the African Union.
