2nd NORTH AMERICAN SOMALI DIASPORA CONFERENCE

Raising awareness on the plight of the Somali people and solidifying the efforts of North America Somali Diaspora Organizations

WASHINGTON DC — DECEMBER 10, 2007: On November 30 & December 1, 2007 approximately two hundred Somali-Americans and Somali-Canadians convened a major conference in the Washington, DC Metro area.

The attendees agreed to forge a unified front to free Somalia from occupation and oppression, and to bring a lasting peace and freedom to the Somali people.

The attendees agreed to urge all Somalis to:

1. Transcend tribal and regional divisions while embracing national identity and unity as our guiding principles

2. Promote the principle of tolerance, fairness, and that injustice to one is injustice to all

3. Play an active and a positive role in bringing lasting peace to our homeland by joining forces with “Somali Cause”

4. Develop an all-inclusive, competence based system for post liberation governance to avoid the return of warlordism and chaos

5. Increase universal awareness on the plight of the Somali people brought about by the occupation and tyranny

The attendees agreed to urge the international community, particularly the United Nations, United States Government, European Union, Arab League, African Union, and Organization of Islamic Conference to:

1. Demand the immediate and unconditional withdrawal of Ethiopian troops from Somalia

2. Compel the Ethiopian forces and the Somali Transitional Federal Government (TFG) to immediately cease shelling civilian areas and to stop denying food aid to the displaced people.
