After the colonial struggles against European rule in Africa, a majority of the Africans who were able to survive the brutal system of colonialism were the ones who were subservient and benefited from its reign. Kwame Nkrumah who was once President over Ghana after independence struggles with the British, coined the phrase Neo-Colonialism as a way of describing a class of Africans who were put in place by the same colonial powers to maintain that power and control over the said country— a way to rule indirectly instead of directly, which caused the majority Africans who were being exploited and . . .
I feel a great rage for the African man that violated Toyin and took her life, but I understand he is a pure creation of the most evil global enemy this planet has ever known. He is a victim in his own way, doomed to a cycle of violence that only total revolution will break, though maybe too late for him. I feel a profound sadness and grief for Toyin’s light extinguished too soon but I also know that there will be many many thousands more women and girls who will suffer like her – new ones every day – until we defeat this enemy once and for all. . . .
Image description — Black and white photo with a fist raised in the Black Power salute. Some words in white lettering are laid over it, from Ashanti Alston, which read: “I think of being Black not so much as an ethnic category but as an oppositional force or touchstone for looking at situations differently. Black culture has always been oppositional and is all about finding ways to creatively resist oppression. So, when I speak of a Black anarchism, it is not so tied to the color of my skin but who I am as a person, as someone who can resist, who . . .
This past weekend, the concept of Juneteenth was discussed and celebrated all throughout the U.S. Spurred by consciousness brought about by people in the streets protesting police terrorism against the African masses, Juneteenth serves as a pressure point for supporting the history of our resistance against oppression. For anyone who hasn’t figured it out yet, Juneteenth is the commemoration of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation which ended slavery in the U.S. in 1863. Due to the corrupt and oppressive nature of chattel slavery as an institution, the slaver masters in Galveston, Texas, U.S., didn’t even bother to tell the . . .
Dear comrades and friends, Last July, the National Lawyers Guild (NLG) and the Haiti Action Committee (HAC) published the report titled The Lasalin Massacre and the Human Rights Crisis in Haiti. Based upon a first-hand investigation by NLG and HAC members, along with journalist Margaret Prescod and her assistant, the report detailed the massacre perpetrated by the US-backed regime of Jovenel Moise against the people of the impoverished community of Lasalin in Port-au-Prince. The Lasalin massacre is widely regarded inside of Haiti as the worst massacre since the 1980s under the regime of “Baby Doc” Duvalier. The Lasalin massacre reflected . . .
To fight effectively we need political and military coordination. We are held together by common ideas and we fight as one people against one international enemy. Freedom for Africans anywhere is connected to the freedom of Africans everywhere. Yes, we want peace and we know that someday there will be peace. But peace will only come after we win the war. . . .
Fifty-seven years since the founding of African Liberation Day (ALD), the pressing need for African unity is more apparent than ever. The Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) recognizes the crucial role of ALD in revitalizing internationalism and anti-imperialism as the bedrock of a reconstituted Black liberation project committed to an authentic process of decolonization. Globally, the African working class is locked in mortal combat against the forces of neoliberal capitalism, which is concentrated in the geostrategic interests of the U.S. ruling classes. To preserve these interests, the U.S. is involved in an aggressive military re-conquest of Africa through its United . . .
