Domestic Terrorism Against Mothers Seeking Housing

“Housing is a human right” is the call from the group of Black and brown women who call themselves “Moms 4 Housing”. Tuesday morning around 5:15 a.m, a two-month-long standoff around housing rights ended when deputies, with an armored truck, battering ram, and a tactical robot arrived at the 2928 Magnolia St. property to forcefully remove (and arrest) several of the women, their children, and their supporters.   Moms 4 Housing is a collective of houseless and marginally housed mothers. Their website says, “Before we found each other, we felt alone in this struggle. But there are thousands of others like . . .

Ayiti

Whenever Haiti is the topic of discussion, one will always think and associate Haiti as being the “poorest country in the Western Hemisphere” and as the country who always seems to be in political turmoil. We are also reminded of the devastating earthquake that rocked Haiti 10 years ago and how the US and France, two of the many countries who are responsible for Haiti’s current state, came to aid Haiti as the “poverty-stricken” and “helpless” sibling that media has portrayed Haiti to be since the 80s. As a child of Haitian immigrants, hearing about Haiti’s troubles has always caused . . .

Iraq US Embassy Protests

It is Just & Correct to Protest US Embassies

When you see a US embassy attacked you should celebrate and cheer. If you’re not quite there yet, you should study history and make an effort to understand why so many oppressed people around the world are extremely hostile to them. And regardless of where you’re at in your anti-imperialist political development you should always always always avoid repeating tired old racist US imperialist lies that criminalize and dehumanize oppressed people for resisting them. . . .

Liberation On The Horizon

The Colonized Are The Real Proletariat  On December 15, 2019, news broke worldwide that a landmark lawsuit had been filed in Washington DC. The plaintiffs: a group of fourteen Africans – parents and children from the Democratic Republic of Congo. The defendants: Google (now Alphabet Inc), Apple, Tesla, Microsoft, and Dell. A veritable who’s who of the modern tech industry. The complaint? That these giant tech corporations, each worth billions of dollars with business operations spanning the skies and the globe, were “knowingly benefiting from and aiding and abetting the cruel and brutal use of exploited young children.” In plain . . .

Human Rights Hypocrisy: Critical Analysis of Hong Kong Protests

Before adjourning for the Thanksgiving holiday, the US Senate unanimously approved HR 3289, the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019. The House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly (417-1) to send the legislation to President Trump for his signature and in a rare bipartisan move, the bill was signed into law. The term “bipartisan” is a mere farce as both major political parties always seem to agree on funding and agitating wars. Trump signed the bill into law, along with another bill that prohibits the sale of tear gas, rubber bullets and other crowd-control munitions to the Hong Kong . . .

Thoughts about “A Maoist Response to China in Africa” Article

On July 31, 2019, I wrote and posted the article “China in Africa; A Critical Assessment” on my blog at “Ahjamu Umi’s the Truth Challenge” at www.abetterworld.me.   Since that time, the “HoodCommunist” blog has launched.  Anyone who knows anything about cadre within the All African People’s Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) knows that we don’t see anyone genuinely fighting for justice as a threat to our work.  We never have and we never will. We operate under the premise that our enemies are the international capitalist/imperialist network led by the United States. I say that to underscore the fact that I . . .

China in Africa: A Critical Assessment

This piece is written specifically for those people who hold a specific interest in African politics, particularly Pan-Africanist movement politics.  We say Pan-African because particularly within the industrialized capitalist countries, Africa is primarily discussed and viewed as an ancillary place with secondary importance to the European Judeo-Christian, capitalist dominated societies across the planet.  For Pan-Africanists – and when we say Pan-Africanists we mean revolutionary Pan-Africanists who are committed to the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism, a process that will happen only with organized revolutionary struggle – this question of China in Africa is hotly debated, discussed, . . .
