The USA – Irrelevant to Africa’s Liberation Struggle

For many Black political activists – from some of the most committed bourgeois Democratic Party stalwarts to some of the most revolutionary socialists – there is a widespread commitment to achieving political aspirations, if not within the current system, at least within North America. However, if what we face in this country goes beyond racial tensions and discrimination and is instead a state of war, then plans for freedom or liberation in the U.S. are grounded in self-delusion. . . .

African Liberation Day 1977 in Washington DC

African Liberation Day Lives!

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party thanks and congratulates you for commemorating African Liberation Day. Your active participation in the events of this important day are the best evidence that you have ignored those who are either misguided or hostile to our people when they say that Africa is no longer at the center of our struggle for justice. . . .

A Dose of Reality for the #ADOS Movement

To a certain extent, it is understandable why Black folks in the ADOS movement want something that caters specifically to African-Americans’ material conditions. However, to exclude non-American Africans from the fight for reparations is not only counter-productive but ahistorical. . . .

Forward to African Liberation Day! Victory in the Class Struggle is Certain

Victory in the Class Struggle is Certain

We, like [Amilcar] Cabral, must have a clear and comprehensive analysis of all the classes engaged in the contemporary class struggle. We must understand that each class struggle happens in time and space. Each person in their locales has a history of resistance, class conflict, and class collaboration. While there is a universal aspect that unites all class struggles, at the base every class struggle emerges from a particular cultural context and must address the interest of the people living within that cultural context. . . .

The concept of Anti- Blackness is an invention of the African petit-bourgeois

Negritude; The Parent of So-called “Anti- Blackness”

Throughout African (Black) activist and social media circles today the concept of “anti-Blackness” is constantly presented as an explanation behind the suffering African people experience within this backward society. The logic of this thinking is summarized within the belief that our 529 years of suffering results from European-dominated culture disliking and disrespecting us due primarily to the fact we are different from them. Inherent in this thinking, whether expressed overtly or not, is the belief that Europeans possess some innate gene that pushes them to have this hatred of us. Also within this thought process (equally as overt and/or covert) is the belief among African people that there is really no escape from this sorry reality. . . .

The All African Women’s Revolutionary Union is Building Pan-Africanism!

The All-African Women’s Revolutionary Union (AAWRU), like the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party, was born out of the political and ideological struggle for liberation of all African and all indigenous people over hundreds of years of colonialism, neo-colonialism and imperialism where African women have always played a critical and decisive role. . . .
