Remembering Afro-Palestinian Freedom Fighter Fatima Bernawi

Written by the The A-APRP Germany Today we remember Afro-Palestinian freedom fighter Fatima Bernawi. Exactly one year ago, on November 3rd 2022, she passed away at the age of 83. We remember her legacy to recall our commitment to the Palestinian liberation struggle and in absolute condemnation of repeated and ongoing genocidal atrocities committed by the settler colonialist regime of Israel backed by their western allies. These same Zionist forces that assassinate Palestinians also train the police and military in Africa and around the world to repress dissent and to uphold racism and imperialist exploitation. We condemn the repression against . . .

We Condemn Your Condemnation

In a colony, condemnation is like the deformed blood of the lamb we begrudgingly paint on our doors praying you—the colonizer—will distinguish us from the rest of the rebellious population you come to slaughter. Thus, to complete the ritual, when a plague of resistance occurs that bleeds outside of your blood drawn colonial lines, you demand our condemnation. You insist we deplore the “use of human shields” when nothing exists behind them but more human beings whom you will bomb and sanction into oblivion whether we choose to resist or not. You urge that we denounce the pig provoked riots . . .

The Unspoken Colonial Contradiction of Haiti

Written by Erica Caines and Austin Cole Since 1804, The Haitian Revolution has been discussed throughout the African world as its personal pride. Described as the largest and most successful slave rebellion in the Western Hemisphere, over the span of 10 years the “first Black republic”, Haiti, challenged colonial powers ending French control eventually winning its independence.  Haiti’s success had a far-reaching impact, both directly and indirectly, contributing to the broader movement toward freedom, equality, and the end of colonialism and slavery. The success of the Haitian Revolution influenced the leaders of Latin American independence movements receiving support from Haiti, . . .

Gaza, Haiti: The White World Trembles

Gaza is starved, beaten, bombed, and trapped,Haiti is sabotaged, poisoned, violated,the “civilized world” moves swiftly past the dark shadow it casts. A pale face is bloodied, a European screams,the white world erupts, In chaotic fury and culpable tears they don their blue and white or yellow,and scream “justice!”and decry “savagery!”and type “terrorists!” the white world trembles, death is her blanket They mobilize funds and pass bills and sail warships and buy commercials,because the white world is well-funded.And we could laugh if their ignorance did not deal death, if the house did not always seem to have the odds on its . . .

The Murderous Assault On Occupied Palestine

The Black Alliance for Peace stands in solidarity with the people of Gaza and all Palestinians under occupation in the racist, apartheid settler state of Israel. We recognize the right of Palestine to exist and the right of the Palestinian people to resist occupation. We call on African/Black people to remember our long tradition of solidarity with Palestine. We condemn the monstrous and cowardly actions of the racist Zionist entity which is committing mass atrocities against the two million people who are locked in the open air prison of Gaza. As the crazed Zionists indiscriminately bomb civilians in Gaza, while . . .

Palestine fights back!

On a daily basis, much of the world stands silent while Zionists and Israeli butchers, murder Palestinian civilians, with a particular focus on children and youth. The over 2 million Palestinians living in Gaza effectively live in an open air prison without any rights, freedom of movement, or control of their lives, and are denied self-determination. Crying “enough is enough,” Hamas-led fighters courageously carried out a well-coordinated offensive against their oppressors. In response, Israel has declared war against the Palestinian people, labeling them terrorists and claiming the attack to be unprovoked. But the fact of the matter is, Israel declared . . .

Smash Zionism

In 1986, The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party distributed their second educational brochure on zionism. The first educational brochure, which was printed in 1977, was entitled “lSRAEL COMMITS MASS MURDER OF PALESTINIAN AND AFRICAN PEOPLES: ZIONISM lS RAClSM. lT MUST BE DESTROYED.” We distributed more than half a million copies throughout the United States and in other countries.  Like its predecessor, the second brochure has as its central purpose, the education of the masses of Africans (all people of African descent wherever they live in the world are African) about zionism. In the first brochure, the A-APRP called for the creation . . .
