Biafra, the re-emerging nation of Igbo people and their allies seek to reclaim their political right to freely choose their own political future through nonviolent political transformation, receives strong endorsement from the Center’s Board of Directors. With more than 25 million people and a history of a nasty war for self-determination with Nigeria in the late 1960’s the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) lead by Chief Ralph Uwazuruike (a strong advocate for non-violence in the tradition of Martin Luther King) now presses for Biafra’s transformation into a free and independent nation.
