Why We Focus on Africa

Black Alliance For Peace  Africa can’t demonstrate independence and power because the entire continent has a giant U.S. military boot on its neck. With reports each week of yet another Black victim of police violence, there is for many an ever-growing desperation. As activists search for a way forward, Africa’s plight does not find its way on to the movement agenda. But there is good reason to be concerned about what goes on in Africa. The problems there and the problems here are related. Africa has long been the focus of foreign exploitation of the continent’s land, resources, and people. . . .

The History of Systemic Theft of Indigenous Lands

In 2020, it should be first knowledge with everyone that the Western Hemisphere is the land of the people indigenous to this hemisphere. And, that the reason these folks are not in possession of these lands today is because of a systemic, violent, and uncompromising process to steal these lands from them. . . .

Political Copaganda & The General Elections

Earlier this week, after months of viral pleas and open letters and less than 100 days from the general election, Joe Biden finally announced his Vice Presidential running- mate would be Senator Kamala Harris.  With a political career predicated on the criminalization of poor working-class Black people in the Bay Area of California, it came as no surprise to many that Harris would have been chosen. However, what is surprising is the inability of many of us to recognize counter-insurgency and neo-colonialism when directly facing it.  Harris was both a chief legal advisor and chief law officer to the California . . .

Possible Massacre in the Garifuna Community of Triunfo de la Cruz

We need to demand an international investigation and a Honduran one with the resources demanded by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. The people of Triunfo de la Cruz have seized a portion of the CA13 highway to demand this. This in from Miriam Miranda’s OFRANEH Twitter, 7/20/2020: “Alert !!, we have ben informed that vehicles with heavily armed people are entering the community of Triunfo de la Cruz at night, they are generating terror. The Court’s ruling establishes that the state must guarantee the peace and security of the community. Compliance NOW!” Miriam Miranda – . . .

Brazil is battling a virus worse than COVID: Colonialism

Poor and working class colonized Brazilians have to deal with more than the Coronavirus epidemic. On top of Coronavirus, which has already left 70 thousand dead in Brazil and 2 million infected as of July 20, Brazilians still have to deal with parasitic colonialism and the neocolonial puppets in power. . . .

Pan-African and International Solidarity will Break Sanctions

Not one European colonizer or settler-colonist brought land to the African continent. They stole it when they arrived. Consequently, it is not only logical but just, that Africans take the land back. Because British settlers stole Zimbabwe territory and called it “Rhodesia” as a tribute to racist Cecil Rhodes, Africans fought a long, fierce armed struggle. After seizing state power in 1980, Africans re-named the country Zimbabwe. For the next 20 years, the Zimbabwean government under the leadership of the heroic Robert Mugabe was widely praised by the west. However, all of that changed when, in the year 2000, the . . .

No Compromise, No Retreat: Defeat the War Against the African/Black People in the U.S. and Abroad

The justice for George Floyd mobilizations today reflected the state’s worst nightmare – a multi-national and multi-racial action initiated by Black people with Black leadership. So, we say: Justice for George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland; for our political prisoners; for the super-exploited Black and Brown working-class; for oppressed Indigenous nations; and for the millions subjected to U.S. warmongering, sanctions, and criminality. We say this to shift the focus from the individualization of this week’s rebellion back to the objective structures of white supremacist, global colonial/capitalist domination.

How African People Became the Face of Anti-Semitism

Article By Ahjamu Umi & Onyesonwu Chatoyer Zionism as a Political Movement  First, in order for anyone to fully comprehend the contradictions that the Zionist movement presents, its essential for us to understand the difference between Zionism – a political movement – and Judaism, a faith practice.  Judaism as a religion is, of course, one of the oldest forms of organized political practice known to human civilization.  Without question, Judaism has its roots either directly in being founded in Africa, or at the very least, being nurtured and developed in Africa.  It is a spiritual faith practiced by millions that . . .
