For the 151st Juneteenth, Back to Kama supports campaign for Juneteenth to become U.S. national holiday

PHOENIX, June 3 – According to a statement released today, the Back to Kama Organization is supporting a campaign for Juneteenth to become a national holiday throughout the nation. Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the end of slavery in the United States.

Juneteenth celebrations are also held in other countries around the world because of the African Diaspora: including Ghana, Honduras, Trinidad, Tobago, Japan, Taiwan, England, and France.
The BTK (www.backtokama.org ) will celebrate the 151st anniversary of Juneteenth in the US in: Elizabeth City, N.C.; Houston, Texas; and Phoenix, Ariz.


“We encourage all our friends and followers on social media to come out and show their support for this very special celebration of freedom,” said Kelvin Green, spokesperson for Back to Kama. [See: https://www.facebook.com/BackToKama.org]


He explained that Kama is the original name for Africa used by its indigenous people and added, “Back to Kama is a voluntary migration campaign to encourage well-educated, successful and affluent people of all races and religions – particularly those who are descendants of slaves – to voluntarily transfer to Kama the knowledge and wealth they have rightfully accumulated in the Americas and relocate their businesses and operations to Kama."

In April 2009, Rael, spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement, initiated the Back to Kama project as the best solution for peace and social equality in the Americas and worldwide. According to Rael, the BTK plan would not only solve the economic crisis faced by most Kama nations, but can serve as “the most comprehensive proposal ever for addressing and solving the issue of reparations for the African slave trade and exploitative colonization, neither of which has been recognized as a crime against humanity.”

The organization believes governments on both sides of the Atlantic can gain much from a stronger Kama. It is therefore encouraging them to offer incentives for African-Americans and other descendants of slaves to establish businesses in Kama and to move their operations to specialized Free Trade Zones.

“Lets embrace this opportunity to stand together for this 151st Juneteenth to celebrate freedom and the advancement of all human beings on planet Earth,” Green concluded.

Rael supports ‘Right to Return’ for those of African descent

LAS VEGAS, March 6 – Several years ago, Rael, spiritual leader of the International Raelian Movement (IRM), inspired the movement “Back to Kama” (the original name for Africa used by its indigenous people) to encourage well-educated, successful and affluent people of all races and religions – especially descendants of slaves – to migrate to Kama and relocate their businesses and operations there, along with transferring knowledge and wealth accumulated in the West.

“The Back to Kama movement is gaining momentum now,” Rael said in a statement released today by the IRM. “However, interested candidates are facing an obstacle that tempers their enthusiasm.”

Describing the obstacle as one that is “of an administrative nature and easy to overcome,” Rael went on to compare the current situation with the one that existed right when the nation of Israel was first created. He pointed out that the Israeli government immediately established ‘The Right to Return,” whereby any Jew, no matter where he or she lived at the time, could immediately receive an Israeli passport and the right to live in Israel.

“The same Right to Return should be instituted by the West African states from which most ancestors of African-Americans came, as well ancestors of those now living in the Caribbean islands and South America,” Rael explained. “African states cannot afford to slow the return [of those with African ancestry] for administrative reasons. Their return, with their wealth and knowledge, is real manna, and it also renders justice for the [enslaved] ancestors.”

In today’s statement, Rael asked all Raelians in Kama to launch a broad campaign that will pressure that continent’s governments to immediately adopt right-of-return laws for all descendants of American and Caribbean slaves.

“It would be justice if those who have accumulated wealth and knowledge in countries that enslaved their ancestors to leave these countries and benefit the countries that were forcibly deprived of this invaluable human capital,” Rael said. "They should even request that the [formerly] enslaving countries issue huge monetary compensation to help them return to Africa.”

'Back to Kama' organization announces new campaign for Black History Month

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 7 - “For February, Black History Month, our organization will intensify its contacts with influential people who could benefit from a return to the African continent, known as Kama to the original inhabitants before colonizers came and renamed it,” said Dr. Gbedia Dodo, President of the Back to Kama Association, in a statement released today.
“Centuries have passed since the ancestors of many accomplished people were deported and enslaved to build the American continent and the fortunes of Europe. Now it’s time to rebuild Kama.”

Dodo said the Back to Kama (BTK) dream was launched in March 2009, after international spiritual leader Rael emphasized in a speech that the African continent should be saved first to avert violent global self-destruction and the end of humanity.

“Kama has the potential to reach a modern post-industrialized level quickly, and without the need to go through the industrialized steps taken by the West,” Dodo explained.

“It’s like a virgin land for entrepreneurs willing to give something back to the continent of their origin. And that’s especially true for all the descendants of slaves, who could return now to the home of their ancestors and restore the dignity and unique peaceful culture that the colonizers destroyed centuries ago.”

Dodo said the new campaign is primarily targeting the African-American community.

“Although Black History Month is a positive legal step, the danger for the African- American community will be to continue looking in the rear view mirror rather than start looking forward,” Dodo said. “Back to Kama offers the African Diaspora a dream solution that will transform our present fate and lead us into the future.”

She said her organization’s goal is to support new entrepreneurial efforts in Africa by informing the West – and successful African-Americans in particular – of the superior benefits to be derived from doing business in Kama.

“With the increasing financial crisis in the United States and Europe, many nations in Kama are becoming the best destinations for successful business investments,” Dodo pointed out.
“Together, we can make this dream a reality and turn Kama into one of the most blossoming continents on the planet.”

She said the Back to Kama team will contact celebrities, entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers and business people throughout Black History Month.

“We’ll give these movers and shakers a detailed vision of what Kama’s future can be like if they unite to make it happen,” Dodo said. “And we mustn’t forget Rael’s warning that saving the planet depends on saving Kama first.”
