New Orleans, La. – Activists, clergy, Hip-Hop artists, leaders of local civil rights organizations, community members and more gathered at Muhammad Mosque No. 46 to show their support for the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, after he was banned from Facebook and Instagram social media platforms. The attendees came to participate in a rally and panel discussion titled, “We Are Farrakhan!” The rally and panel was inspired by similar rallies that have been held by Mosque No. 26 of Oakland and Mosque No. 25 of San Francisco.

“There were three objectives we wanted to achieve by the end of this impactful meeting. The first was to allow community leaders the opportunity to share their thoughts about the ban, express their support of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and discuss how this ban can be used to organize our people. Second, we wanted to reveal to the attendees the real motive behind the ban, and more importantly equip them with the resources to help them understand why the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan is engaged in a war with the architects of white supremacy, what should be Black leaderships response when they are asked to denounce the Minister and to supply them with the research that will empower them to combat the lies of the enemies,” stated Student Minister Brother Willie Muhammad.

Panelist talked about how the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan was relevant before social media and will continue to be effective regardless of any censure because of his years of work and succeed in transforming people within and outside the Nation of Islam.
