A protest against the government of Jovenel Moïse in Haiti.

The Assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse

For Immediate Release Media Contact:(202) 643-1136communications@blackallianceforpeace.com JULY 7, 2021—Unknown assailants overnight assassinating Haitian President Jovenel Moïse was a horrific act that should be condemned in no uncertain terms. Unfortunately, such violence is unsurprising. As the Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) noted in its July 6 press release, Moïse’s actions since usurping power have brought Haiti to a boiling point, with heavily armed gangs being unleashed, both supported by and enabled by the Haitian elite and those international “friends” of Haiti, including the United States, the United Nations, the Core Group and the Organization of American States. What happens now is . . .

The Struggle for Palestine is Our Struggle.

The war waged by Israel, United States, and Europe on the Palestinian people is the same colonial war that was—and continues to be—waged on Africans worldwide. After the end of World War II, the UN, dominated by European countries, created the modern state of Israel for the European Jews who suffered under Hitler’s murderous regime. This settler-state, however, was not simply created out of thin air, but was formed by uprooting the Palestinians from their homeland and creating a poor attempt at legitimacy by dubbing it “Israel.”  Israel is the biblical land promised to the Jewish descendants of Abram (Abraham) . . .

The World Condemns US Attacks on Cuba

What the vote on Cuba’s UN resolution does is show that the US government is incredibly isolated, both domestically and internationally, when it comes to upholding this illegal and genocidal economic blockade. . . .

Protests in Ethiopia against US sanctions

Don’t Allow Another U.S.-NATO Libya in the Horn of Africa

Given the catastrophic effects of the U.S.-NATO intervention in Libya, the Black Alliance for Peace’s U.S. Out of Africa Network and BAP member organization Horn of Africa Pan-Africans for Liberation & Solidarity (HOA PALS), condemn, under no uncertain terms, any and all forms of intervention and meddling in the conflict in Ethiopia. . . .

Confronting Bipartisan Repression and the US-led Axis of Domination Beyond Election Day

Originally Published on Black Agenda Report No matter who sits in the white peoples’ house, we will have to continue to fight for social justice, democracy, and People(s)-Centered Human Rights.   Chaos, violence, legal challenges, voter suppression, and party suppression all culminated in the pathetic display of democratic degeneration on Election Day. After two decades of losing wars, plus the economic collapse of 2008, the response to COVID-19, and now the election debacle, if there were any doubts the U.S. is a morally exhausted empire in irreversible decline, they would have been erased with yesterday’s anti-democratic spectacle.  Democratic Party propagandists and . . .

#EndSARS: State Violence Against African People in the US and Nigeria is Connected

The Nigerian police forces and military have long histories with the United States through the U.S.-led International Police Training School and the military-to-military relations between U.S. and Nigerian militaries, a part of the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM). . . .

Pan-African and International Solidarity will Break Sanctions

Not one European colonizer or settler-colonist brought land to the African continent. They stole it when they arrived. Consequently, it is not only logical but just, that Africans take the land back. Because British settlers stole Zimbabwe territory and called it “Rhodesia” as a tribute to racist Cecil Rhodes, Africans fought a long, fierce armed struggle. After seizing state power in 1980, Africans re-named the country Zimbabwe. For the next 20 years, the Zimbabwean government under the leadership of the heroic Robert Mugabe was widely praised by the west. However, all of that changed when, in the year 2000, the . . .

An Open Letter to People of Conscience: Stop the Massacres in Haiti

An Open Letter to People of Conscience: Stop the Massacres in Haiti

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 . . .
