May 25th 2020 – For the African Liberation Day, a ground breaking initiative has emerged : launched by the State of the African Diaspora (SOAD) and the Economic Community of the 6th Region (ECO-6), is the Citizenship ID Card of SOAD and ECO-6. This new ID is to create a new citizenship and common unity for the Afro-desendant members of the African Diaspora.
Sample of the new ID:
Created in two colours, Gold and Platinum, this ID includes several security features against any kind of fraud, such as nano text and holographic overlays.
Dr Louis-Georges Tin, Prime Minister of the State of the African Diaspora said –
‘’In many countries of the world, as a result of history, People of African Descent remain undocumented, or are regarded as second class citizens ; now, with this new ID, their citizenship will be fully recognised in the context of the African Diaspora’’
Hon. Timothy McPherson, Chief of the ECO-6 stated –
‘’That is why this ID is not only a matter of administration. It is a matter of pride, of reparation and reconstruction’’
Keturah Amoako, Vice Prime Minister of the SOAD added :
‘’the State of the African Diaspora has formed an alliance with several organisations to form The Exodus Alliance who will be Livestreaming an event – Africa Day 2020 – on 25 May at which the announcement of the registration will be officially made’’.
This ID Card has 3 main functions –
- A Symbolical Function : When you are a citizen of the 6th Region African Diaspora (ECO-6), the ID is of great symbolic significance of your belonging to a worldwide African community connecting you to its past, to its present and to its future.
- A Political Function : When you are a citizen of the 6th Region African Diaspora (ECO-6) and the State of the African Diaspora, the ID gives you the right to vote for the Members of the Parliament of the State of the African Diaspora.
