African Diaspora International Film Festival



The African Diaspora International Film Festival (ADIFF) is a minority­led not­for profit international film festival that presents, interprets and educates about films that explore the human experience of people of color all over the world in order to inspire imaginations, disrupt stereotypes and help transform attitudes that perpetuate injustice.

Established in 1993, (ADIFF) is an international film festival that offers a unique quality cinematic experience that
places at its center the humanity of people of color all over the world. Through its rich and diverse programming, ADIFF offers an alternative worldview to that typically offered by other international film festivals. ADIFF’s programming encourages its audience to explore and reflect upon their own perceptions of the humanity of people of color from South Africa to Colombia and from Jamaica to Canada.

ADIFF is now held in New York City, Chicago, Washington DC, and Paris, France. ADIFF is produced by ArtMattan Productions, a company dedicated to the promotion of cultures from Africa and its diaspora. ArtMattan Productions holds a library of more than 100 films by and about people from Africa and its diaspora all over the world.

Flavia Nicole Abdurahman



In 2012, after over 10+ years in the field, filming communities affected by long-time conflict, I was inspired to set up PeacebuildingTV (PBTV), an Australian non-profit organisation, which trains diaspora, at the community level, in peace-building. PBTV offers an introductory toolkit to build the capacity of those inside their communities, who have found themselves, for various reasons, as informal inside mediators in their communities.

I am a former student of Dr Johan Galtung & subscribe to his approaches to non-violent conflict resolution. These principles underlie my curriculum.

I look forward to hearing from members of this association, about their experiences concerning this topic.

Warmest,
Flavia

Friends of the African Union BermudaAmericas Bureau



Aware of the rich and diverse human and institutional resources at the grassroots level, the new African Union is devoted to building strong partnerships between the governments and all segments of the society.

The impulse is not for the African Union to organize civil society. Rather the organizing principle of the Economic, Social and Cultural Council [ECOSOCC] of the African Union is one in which civil society would organize themselves to work with the Organization.

The Friends of the African Union has taken organization of this civil society in the USA.

Friends of the African Union is a economic, social, humanitarian, charitable, educational and new media civil-society ruling body founded in 2012.

Five Points Youth Foundation, a 501c3 California non-profit corporation licensed the Friends of the African Union Bermuda-Americas Bureau on June 19, 2015 to materialize the 2012 appointment by the Friends of the African Union (https://ift.tt/2JanxtM)

Based in South Los Angeles, California, FAU-Bermuda-Americas authored the Kwanzaa Accord 2020 & Sankofa Renaissance 2063 to align the energies and efforts of the Diaspora community worldwide through the Leimert Park / Baldwin Hills Census Tract, representing the one of the highest per-capita Census Tract for African Americans with the “last” cultural hub for African Americans in the Western United States through neighborhood empowerment through economic development by stimulating cultural travel, trade and tourism locally, nationally and globally.

COMPETENCES DE NOTRE LABORATOIRE
Le Département de Nutrition et Sciences Alimentaires de la Faculté des Sciences Agronomiques de l’Université d’Abomey-Calavi à travers le Laboratoire de Biochimie Microbienne et de Biotechnologie Alimentaire s’est engagé depuis plus d’une décennie dans la valorisation des ressources alimentaires locales. En effet des travaux de valorisation des produits issus de la fermentation alcoolique (Akpan, Gowé, mawè) ont été effectués et ont permis d’améliorer la technologie traditionnelle de production. La valorisation des légumes feuilles traditionels a fait aussi objet de plusieurs travaux de recherche à travers l’inventaire des connaissances endogènes et l’évaluation de leur potentiel nutritionnel et médécinal. Aussi des travaux de valorisation des produits forestiers non ligneux ont été menés. A cet effet le potentiel nutritionel des produits de Baobab, les condiments issus des graines de néré (Afitin, iru, sonru) ont été caractérisés au plan physicochimique,microbiologique et des améliorations ont été apportées à la technologie traditionnelle de production de ces condiments avec à la clé la formulation d’un ferment qui permet de contrôler la fermentation. Récemment nous avons entamé des travaux de recherche sur la technologie de production du beurre de Pentadesma butyracea dans la perspective de créer une filière d’exportation de ce beurre au même titre que celui du beurre de Karité.

Considerando a violência como a mais evidente expressão contemporânea da questão social, esta entendida como consequência direta do modo de produção capitalista, marcado pela luta de classe e pela apropriação desigual das riquezas socialmente produzidas;

Considerando que o sistema de segurança e justiça tem se mostrado historicamente, e sobretudo neste momento, como instrumento de manutenção das estruturas de poder político, econômico e social, resultando em criminalização da pobreza, da negritude, da juventude e dos movimentos sociais;Considerando que o efetivo e verdadeiro enfrentamento da violência deve ser feito por políticas preventivas, que passam por redistribuição de riqueza e garantia de direitos, e por políticas de repressão qualificada com absoluto respeito e promoção dos direitos humanos;

Considerando a necessidade de afirmação da segurança como direito humano fundamental que requer políticas governamentais intersetoriais, responsabilização dos três entes federados, dos três poderes da república, além do Ministério Público e com ampla participação e controle popular;

Considerando o equivocado modelo de segurança pública vigente no Brasil, gerenciado pelo paradigma repressivo punitivo e violador, que tem privilegiado o uso excessivo da força, o endurecimento das penas, a deficitária oferta do número de vagas no falido sistema prisional, a redução da maioridade penal, dentre outros;

Considerando, por fim, a dimensão subjetiva da violência, construída e sedimentada historicamente por uma cultura sócio-política autoritária, escravista, elitista, machista, homofóbica, patrimonialista e privatista;

Manifesto pela vida e por um novo modelo de segurança pública “MNDH )
