For All Points-Of-The-View.
The World Afrikan Diaspora Union (WADU), under the leadership of the Honorable Ambassador Dudley Thompson, would like to make a public declaration that the
relationship that WADU had formed with the Sixth Region Diaspora Caucus (SRDC),
as manifested in a tentative partnership agreement called Pan African Diaspora
Union (PADU), has reached a level of irreconcilable differences, due to a better
understanding and re-evaluation of the criteria of the AU ECOSOCC and thus WADU
has decided that there it would no longer be necessary to work together within
the said instrument called PADU.
PADU was initiated at the WADU 2009 Summit as a temporary instrument to begin building a common front for Pan African Diaspora organizations to approach the
African Union regarding representation in AU ECOSOCC. WADU looks forward to
partnering with Pan African organizations to form a broad Pan African Diaspora
council to explore and develop an agenda to approach the AU on key issues
affecting African people in the world. This broad council of Pan Africanists and
Africanists of African descent will decide with or without a mandated agreement,
on the best instrument or instruments to work with the African Union.
Finally, any association of the name of WADU or its President, the Honorable Dudley Thompson, with being a part of, or affiliated with PADU, would not have any
validity as resolved on the day of our Ancestors on January 23, 2010 at the WADU
Executive Session in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as requested by a broad consensus
of the WADU General Council of leaders across the WADU Diaspora, for the repeal
