The Black Misleaders Promote Zionism

In 2021 this columnist wrote, “The Palestine Litmus Test.” At that time Israel, a bastion of zionism, was carrying out one of its periodic attacks against Gaza, deliberately targeting civilians, and in doing so practicing war crimes. Now the zionist state is intent on completely destroying Gaza, killing as many people as possible and driving out the survivors so that the region can be open for settlement and for oil and gas extraction.  The horrific scenes of carnage have evoked revulsion for millions of people in the United States and around the world. Huge protests have taken place nationally and . . .

Populist Trends or Revolutionary Pan-Africanism?

By Kinuthia Ndungu & Nicholas Mwangi A fierce class struggle has been raging in Africa. The evidence is all around us. In essence, it is, as in the rest of the world, a struggle between the oppressors and the oppressed.” Kwame Nkrumah We are indeed living in interesting times, witnessing a resurgence of Pan-Africanism that is both reinvigorating and complex. The African continent is witnessing the dynamic movement of leaders who deliver passionate speeches, captivating the youth and the diaspora. However, beneath this energetic facade lies a challenge – the rise of pseudo-populist Pan-Africanism that regurgitates empty rhetoric. This practice . . .

happy thanksgiving (or whatever that means)

(2022) Each passing Thanksgiving brings us closer to the fall of the US empire a cause most worthy of your efforts. With the expiration of the most violent and predatory nation in the history of the world, comes the opportunity, maybe for the first time, for the people living in this part world to develop rituals of their own that do not begin upon piles of dead bodies from here and there and there and there. An opportunity to live in harmony with the rest of the planet. Isn’t it beautiful to consider that a field of marigolds will one . . .

Palestine, Panama, the DRC: Impact by Extraction

As the West becomes increasingly dependent on the natural resources within Black and Indigenous territories, the tactics used to extract said resources have become inconceivably violent. In the case of Palestine, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Panama, imperialist powers have made it clear that the survival of civilians is inconsequential to the profits of resource extraction. The assault on Palestine is inseparable from the fresh water and oil fields that the Israeli government is insistent on controlling. Similarly in the DRC, the massacre and displacement of thousands stems from mining companies and their profit-maximizing goal of extracting cobalt . . .

Baltimore & Israel: A Global Gang of Colonizers

The Black Alliance for Peace- Baltimore From Haiti to Puerto Rico and from the Congo to Baltimore, African (Black) people suffer from colonialism. Current atrocities happening to the people of Gaza and the West Bank clearly show the colonial reality of life and death in Palestine. What we see daily in Palestine is a project to completely replace the indigenous population with a settler population. The attempt to exterminate the Palestinians is being carried through collusion between Israel, the U.S, the European Union, and all western powers. This is nothing less than a genocidal campaign to occupy Gaza, and slaughter . . .

Zionism, Settler-colonialism and the Myth of Democracy

Zionism is settler-colonialism and settler-colonialism is an act of genocide.  This current wave of massacres of Palestinians in Gaza is part of a long process of ethnic cleansing that began with murderous attacks on Palestinian villages prior to and in 1948, then proceeded to the expulsion of more than 700,000 Palestinians in the Nakba. The ethnic cleansing is all these acts of settler-colonial dispossession and deprivation including military assaults, destruction of homes, crops and cultural sites, arrests, rape and torture, blockades and denial of water and food as well as killing of women and children. In the age of capitalist . . .

Peru and The Viceroy of Bernechea

By Eugenio Raúl Zaffaroni y Guido Leonardo Croxatto Translation by Percy Lujan, Clau O’Brien Moscoso Since the unconstitutional removal of Pedro Castillo, president of Peru – a rural teacher from the northern region of Cajamarca, supported by Evo Morales, Petro and AMLO – last December, there have been a series of confusions, not always innocent, about what led to his impeachment. He was accused of an impossible crime of which he was not even informed by his captors (the police who arrested him aimed at his children with machine guns, in a way that was unnecessary and coup-like). They arrested . . .
