79th Birthday of Brother and Comrade Kwame Ture

The more you love the People, the more you work for the People; the more you work for the People, the more you want to know the People; the more you study and know the People, the more you love the People; the more you love the People, the harder you work for the People… Kwame Ture Born in Trinidad and Tobago on 29 June 1941, Kwame Ture is more alive now and lives on eternally!

#BlackLivesMatter: Our Strategy is to Win the War

#BlackLivesMatter: Our Strategy is to Win the War!

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. . . .

Recentering Internationalism: An Analysis of Economic Sanctions

As maintained in the October article, Failures of the US Left, “what should be largely understood by the ‘US left’ is that fascism and capitalism rely on and support imperialism—- seeking out to exploit nations we’ve come to view as Underdeveloped for labor, benefiting only the most privileged few within the Western nation”. During this year’s African Liberation Day virtual broadcast, this point was exemplified through discussions centered on imperialist sanctions against sovereign nations like Zimbabwe, Cuba, and Venezuela, reiterating the point that “one can not be a revolutionary socialist and not also be an anti-imperialist.” How does one come . . .

Fight White Supremacy: Celebrate African Liberation Day!

May 25th, 2020, represents the 62nd commemoration of African Liberation Day (ALD).  African Liberation Day was originally founded on April 15th, 1958, as Africa Freedom Day during the All African People’s Conference held by Kwame Nkrumah and the Convention People’s Party in Ghana.   For many people of African descent today (“all people of African descent are Africans and belong to the African nation” – Kwame Nkrumah in Class Struggle in Africa, 1970), it can be difficult for them to understand our focus on Africa and African liberation.  For some Africans throughout Europe or the Western Hemisphere, their entire existence has . . .

Responding to Anti-Black Violence During Quarantine

Responding to Anti-Black Violence During Quarantine

Originally posted by Comrade Ellis on BlackHammer.Org It’s 2020, and our lives have drastically changed due to the current health epidemic, coronavirus. Yet we still face colonial anti-Black violence, and we still face oppression from the white nationalist state. The current crisis has given the police new powers to enforce social distancing. As colonized people, this means, more militarization, more policing, and therefore more state-sanctioned brutality against us. Essential workers, mostly African and Indigenous to the americas or turtle island, already have to contend with higher forms of oppression and health risks, by leaving their homes in order to work. . . .

How African People Became the Face of Anti-Semitism

Article By Ahjamu Umi & Onyesonwu Chatoyer Zionism as a Political Movement  First, in order for anyone to fully comprehend the contradictions that the Zionist movement presents, its essential for us to understand the difference between Zionism – a political movement – and Judaism, a faith practice.  Judaism as a religion is, of course, one of the oldest forms of organized political practice known to human civilization.  Without question, Judaism has its roots either directly in being founded in Africa, or at the very least, being nurtured and developed in Africa.  It is a spiritual faith practiced by millions that . . .
