Realizing that Justice would never be achieved if waiting on the current government system to give it and knowing that is fully within the law to alter or abolish government and take independent political control of a city or territory, The Black Independence movement was initiated July 4, 2015 in Detroit, Michigan.

There have been two votes held in which thousands of people participated. The critical mass needed was hindered due to police intervention and media collusion with the current government which of course wants to remain in power.

We want 2019 to be the year we reach the critical mass needed to finally take independent control not only in Detroit but every Black city or area in America. On July 4, 2019 The People must stand up in their respective city in massive numbers to withdraw consent from current government and vote in an Independent government. Then all of the empty homes and assets of the city will belong to The People to benefit themselves therewith. Police forces will be dismantled and rebuilt and the convicted can have their charges dropped.

Black Independence is not a religious or any kind of membership organization, but is simply a movement to achieve Independence under the simple banner of “THE PEOPLE”. The law states that “ALL political power is inherent in THE PEOPLE” so all are welcome to participate.
