People’s Democracy in Guinea Bissau

The African Party for the Independence of Guinea Bissau (PAIGC) is the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (AAPRP) inside of Guinea Bissau, and the AAPRP is the PAIGC outside of Guinea Bissau. This fact is critical for anyone seeking to understand the position of the AAPRP on current events in Guinea Bissau or our ongoing struggle to achieve Pan-Africanism: the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism.  The oneness of the PAIGC and AAPRP explains our general strategy to expose and defeat imperialism in the era of neo-colonialism. The union of thought, action, and organization of all the revolutionary . . .

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.

Call for End to Imperialist Sanctions!

Trade and financial sanctions have been put in place to cripple the advancement of over twenty countries.  In most cases these are unilateral sanctions put in place by a single government, the United States. Other western capitalist countries like France and England have also played a part in these illegitimate sanctions. The stated aim of sanctions is generally to punish a government for actions counter to the principles and interest of the sanctioning country.

Cuba Not a State Sponsor of Terrorism! 

The enduring friendship between Cuba and the peoples of Burkina Faso and the entire African continent cannot be adequately summed up in a few paragraphs. As a people subjected to slavery, colonialism, neo-colonialism and imperialism for several hundred years, few peoples in the world know our struggle and pain better than the peoples of Cuba, Latin America and the Caribbean. In 1983, our country had the courage to challenge a world order based on the exploitation of the many for the enrichment of the few. Thomas Sankara, our brilliant leader, led us with honesty, integrity and bravery as our people . . .
