The Internet coalition that prompted Gadaffi's United States of Africa mandate
Mark Wood (IP: Logged)
The truth should at least be known as to why Khadaffi adapted the United States of Africa mandate.
Our Internet Coalition USA4USAfrica which I founded in January 1996 has copies of the original faxes and e-mails we sent to Lybia's consulate, embassy and state offices here, directly to Lybian newspapers and media links in the web internet's early days of 1996 - 1998 - some of these were forwarded to Khadaffi and gained his attention after which he immediately gave news releases to CNN which was the first worldwide media attention the current efforts of a US Africa movement have received.
All documented - see the usa4usafrica website: www.unitedstatesafrica.com
I wanted to give you an update on the building of the United States of Africa coalition I started back in 96 with Robert Wood - Our mission remains the same, to unite Africa as one nation and thus unite the world, in uniting Africa as one nation.God willing.* take a look at the Current sites for the movement at:
The United States of Africa - Please forward to anyone who has cried a tear for Africa and wants to see a change."There are no words to describe what I feel about the possibility of the achievement of The United States of Africa.
The applause of the entire globe could not give this cause justice, and justice is what this cause will bring. I am sure that the US of Africa will mean the extinction of poverty and the promotion of world Unity. I know the day will come when its constitution is signed. It will be signed not with greed and power in mind, but instead with love and unity. My prayers and deepest salutations are with you all." – Jared
While we understand the beginning of the USA for USAfrica may have an unusual genesis, the heart felt reasons behind the movement are unmistakable, and the need for a United States of Africa, is Undeniable.No continent in the world is better positioned than Africa, ( a United Africa ) to contribute to the welfare of Mankind over the next thousand years. As an ABC Night Line reporter covering Africa noted, "Africa is 98% virtually the same as it was a thousand years ago."
An incredible vast land of undeveloped potential both for it's people and the world.In a United States of Africa, a citizen could freely travel from Gambia to South Africa to Algeria or anywhere on the continent to seek education, opportunity, commerce or the simple pleasure of tourist travel within their vast country.A common African currency much like the EU model affords the ability to buy and sell throughout the continent with a reliable backed currency.
A transcontinental citizenship throughout Africa will one day become the envy of the free world.Much of Africa's third world debt could be relived if freedom and security of capitalism were able to thrive in any African country - state from taxes paid by companies involved in business in any African location.
An immediate positive effect would arise from local, municipal and federal levels throughout Africa. Any and all of these possibilities can only arise from what can take place in a United States of Africa. With national borders being no more restrictive than state borders, allowing transcontinental travel, commerce and opportunity for all African citizens.A United States of Africa with the largest usable coastline in the world could one day be the country that enriches all of Mankind, feeds the world, heals the world, teaches the world and balances the world.
There is so much more involved and the USA for USAfrica is not naive to the many levels that must be addressed, our point is the dialogue must begin at once, in the media, on the airwaves, in discussions and editorials.The concept of a United States of Africa must immediately be brought into public debate worldwide and among Africans themselves.
Yours in peace and a United Africa,

Absolute proof Gadaffi was inspired to a United Africa from our initial contacts

Please understand I am not a glory hog on who statred the 3rd generation push for a United Africa, but when internet archive records prove the organization I started was the 1st Internet based coalition to united Africa as one nation to appear on the web for that purpose.
Internet archive snapshots date our first website for a united Africa in 1996 a full two years before Khadaffi first gained media attention on the mandate that is now getting on the radar maps of the world's media. The major factions of which still refuse to even mention the words United States of Africa on network TV in the US let alone in print.our original site for the movement: geocities.com/unitedstatesafrica still shows on most search engines on any search regarding united africa, united states of africa, and especially on searches for mark wood, united states of africa and unitedstatesafrica period.
I feel we should at least be acknowledged for our efforts that continue today at www.unitedstatesafrica.com and our sub set websites.
