Chicago Birth of AFTF Slogan/Motto
On Saturday, September 23rd, Aaron Russo, AFTF volunteers and members of the Lone Lantern Society (LLS) met at the LLS meeting in a Lincoln Park coffee shop where this motto was formally reiterated for the second time in public:
ONE FAMILY....ONE MOVEMENT....FREEDOM FOR ALL!!
The birth of this slogan can be credited to "Ja Far" and his partner Rashid Akbar who are the organizers
of the ICE Theatre screening of AFTF here in Chicago.
Here's the video clip.... Please repeat after Rashid, Aaron and Ja Far: ONE FAMILY. ONE MOVEMENT. FREEDOM FOR ALL!!
The original feeling behind this slogan came from deep within the heart of the black community here in Chicago. The first public utterance of this slogan came at the private meeting Aaron had on Friday, 9/22, with some of the leading ministers and pastors - including one of the most famous Catholic priests in the world - in the black community here in Chicago. The organizers of this meeting even made a cake for Aaron to show their sincere gratitude for what he has done in bring the truth about modern slavery back into the public consciousness of our world. ONE FAMILY. ONE MOVEMENT. FREEDOM FOR ALL!!
NOTE: the editor of this blog is big into the significance of numbers - their prime roots and cycles as these perfect patterns manifest throughout history. The day of this incredibly powerful and emotional "meeting and screening with the ministers" in Chicago's black community just "happened to be" the 144th anniversary of the first official utterance of Abraham Lincoln's most famous official public document - ie. The Emancipation Proclamation.
Whereas, on the twenty-second day of September, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-two, a proclamation was issued by the President of the United States, containing, among other things, the following, to wit:
"That on the first day of January, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States, shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the Executive Government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.

144 Year Bookends:
1862 Emancipation Proclamation ---------- 2006 Emancipation Proclamation
Both proclamations were given birth from this great Land of Lincoln during a time when our nation was/is greatly divided.
And may the restoration of our Constitutional Republic begin in earnest!
ONE FAMILY! ONE MOVEMENT! FREEDOM FOR ALL!

Final Note: today's date, 9/29 (929) is prime number that corresponds to this phrase, "Free From Fear" as follows:
Free (6955) From (6964) Fear (6519) = 20438 = 929 prime X 22
