The Martinique Declaration in June, 2008 that was negotiated, agreed and jointly signed produced a partnership merger of several Pan African groups in the French Caribbean, Central America, Brazil and North America.

When referring to all of these groups, it is SRDC (Sixth Region Diaspora Coalition).  That document is the basis for the current partnership agreement with the a coalition of organizations including: the Central American Black Organization (CABO), which is Organización Negra Centroamericana (ONECA) in Spanish, the Universal Negro Improvement Association & African Communities League (UNIA-ACL); UNIA-ACL Legal Defense; All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (AAPRP); African Unity of Harlem, Inc. (AUH); African Union African Diaspora Sixth Region of the Netherlands (AUADS); Per Ankh, St. Thomas; Collective Black People Movement (CBPM) and others.

It established a working operational unity without uniformity — i.e., each organization partnered maintains its own sovereignty and has the right to one equal vote on an International Diaspora Council, which is scheduled to meet once a year (except for extraordinary issues).

When referring to those partnered groups, it is PADU (Pan African Diaspora Union), an international umbrella organization of Diasporans, and includes the AUADS-Europe and the Black Hebrews of Jordan, Israel and the Middle East.
