Jamaat al-Muslimeen International Press Release

October 16: Historic Family March
Minister Farrakhan's Memorable Speech
JAM Carries out Strong Sudan Outreach

A huge crowd listened to Minister Louis Farrakhan's 3 hour long speech at the Million Families March in front of the Capitol in Washington D.C. Minister Farrakhan was able to bring together people of various faiths, backgrounds and ethnic groups. Observers say he has become the healer of suffering America's people. An outstanding aspect of the unity expressed at the massive gathering was the appearance of Malcolm X's daugthers with Minister Farrakhan in a great gesture of reconciliation which put an end to the efforts of Mike Wallace (60 Minutes) to make the people fight each other.

We do not wish to pre-empt the Nation of Islam's report on the March so we'll limit ourselves to a brief report on Jamaat al-Muslimeen's efforts.

JAM focused on two issues: POLITICAL PRISONERS and SUDAN. A special effort was made to help Sudan because the Zionists are carrying out a creeping new campaign against Sudan, this time through naive Black Christian publications.

Jamaat al-Muslimeen's placards on Sudan, Political Prisoners (Imam Jamil al-Amin and Shaikh Omar) were outstanding in the entire gathering.

Through organized and systematic outreach, JAM was able to reach thousands of people with NEW TREND magazine and flyers on Sudan specially produced for the occasion.

The MILLION SIGNATURES CAMPAIGN petition for Imam Jamil al-Amin's release was also distributed on a wide scale with excellent response from the audience.
