Apr 26, 2001, 01:00 ET from American Anti-Slavery Group

    NEW YORK, April 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Guardian Angel founder Curtis Sliwa,
 along with Black Caucus founder, former Congressman Walter Fauntroy, and D.C.
 radio personality, Joe Madison, will risk arrest in acts of civil disobedience
 in front of the Sudan Mission to the United Nations, at noon, May 2.
     The protest demonstration, organized by the American Anti-Slavery Group
 of Boston, is in response to slave raids on African villages organized by the
 Government of Sudan. Fauntroy and Madison recently returned from an illegal
 trip to South Sudan where they witnessed the redemption of 2,953 black slaves.
 Dr. Charles Jacobs, President of the American Anti-Slavery Group, who was with
 them in Sudan, will also risk arrest, as will Curtis' sister and former NYC
 cop, Maria Sliwa.
     Joining the protesters will be WABC talk show host, Steve Malzberg, Rabbi
 Joseph Potasnik VP and Counsel of the NY Board of Rabbis, the President of the
 National Black Catholic Clergy, Franciscan Father James Goode and other
 members of the public.
     AASG's Jacobs said: "Just two weeks ago, I promised the slaves I met in
 Sudan that we would not rest until the slave trade is stopped. New York City
 is the gateway to freedom for millions of Americans. We should not let slavers
 operate freely in this citadel of freedom."
 
     WHEN:  Wednesday May 2, 2001 at 12 noon
 
     WHERE: The Sudan Mission to the United Nations, 655 Third Ave.,
            (between 41st and 42nd Sts. in New York City).
