The following speech was given by Commander in Chief Gazi Kodzo in Rally #16 on the topic of the loneliness of the revolutionary, a common topic in light of recent events and protests as we set off to build a world without colonialism. I am about to do something that I was programmed to not do by a single Black mother that taught me never to expose yourself or your feelings or your heart because colonialism is going to squash it. But I’m a revolutionary now and we must be transparent with what we’re going through to the people, and . . .
In the last weeks, there have been more and more building conversations around the potential of the 45th president of the US, Donald Trump, staging a coup to stay in office after the November 3rd general elections. The uncertainty of citizens’ (in)ability to vote by mail during a pandemic, and an open supreme court seat coupled with Trump’s rather outright statements suggesting he may not leave, has led to a cartoonish- like panic around how we are discussing the upcoming elections. The same groups are also having the conversations around these alleged possibilities and scenarios on the left that have . . .
For the past week, Nigerian youth have been hitting the street to demand #EndSARS. The Special Anti-Robbery Squad Policing Unit (SARS) was created in 1992 to “stop crime”, specifically armed robbery and kidnapping which was a growing concern in the 1990s and 2000s. Armed robbery and kidnapping mainly targeted rich and middle-class Nigerians who have seen massive increases in wealth in the last few decades. However, like many policing squads, SARS is a largely unchecked unit that has been targeted young people based on their appearance of tattoos, earrings, iPhones, and cars utilizing that as evidence of fraud, scamming and . . .
Dear 2020 fuck you for COVID-19. But Because of you people are waking up no longer a dream. A dream of conformity provided by our working distractions, black mirrors and tv screens. People stuck at home on lockdown in quarantine. They have no choice but to bare witness to the realities of a people who demand equality that’s unseen. Hatred and bigotry provoked by this commander in chief. Our lives have been stolen by this demander and thief. If he’ll answer for those crimes next year remains to be seen. Black Lives Matter fightin for change.Fightin for our people still . . .
The deliberate obfuscation by the ruling elites of post-94 to address economic and racial injustice by racializing justice continues the white power structure. It is a continuous trajectory of prioritising transformation over decolonisation. . . .

By Mark P Fancher Originally Posted in Black Agenda Report Republished in solidarity with National Day of Action to #ShutDownAFRICOM Africans have flooded into the streets of Britain, Germany, Brazil, France and many other countries, not only in solidarity, but also as part of their own resistance. It can’t be said that the thousands of fist-waving, mask-wearing, hard-marching Africans in North American streets are all dressed up with no place to go. We can say that many don’t know where they are going. After nearly two weeks of rage-filled street manifestations triggered by the cold-blooded, racist murder of George Floyd, . . .
