Kwame Ture, Ethel Minor, & Kwame Nkrumah

Memorial Services

Visitation begins on Monday, October 3rd, 2022, at Cage Memorial Chapel located at 7651 South Jeffrey Boulevard at 11:30 AM.

Funeral Service will begin at 12:30 PM with burial afterwards at Lincoln Cemetery, 123rd and Kenzie Avenue, Blue Island, Illinois

Ethel Minor made her transition on September 21, 2022. The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) and Bob Brown, who worked with her, send condolences, and best wishes to Judy and Bob Starks, her sister and Brother-in-law, and to her biological and movement Family. An official Obituary, and information about her Funeral / Memorial Service will be provided soon. In the meantime, the A-APRP (GC) briefly and proudly introduces her to five generations of African and Other radicals and revolutionaries, especially women, and to future generations as yet unborn.

She was born in 1933, into a large and extremely accomplished Episcopalian Family in Chicago. She converted to Catholicism later in life and remained extremely religious. Lorne Cress Love, Francis Cress Welsing, and Barbara Cress Lawrence are three of her distinguished and accomplished cousins. Ethel studied  mass communications in Chicago and in Colombia, South America from 1960 to 1962. She became extremely proficient in the Spanish language and served for more than three decades as a journalist, editor and organizer, translator, and Spanish / English teacher.

While in Colombia, Ethel met a who’s who of Arabs, especially Palestinians and Syrians, who had moved there in the wake of the 1948 Israeli war against, and occupation of Palestine. The relationships she developed and her love for Africa, Palestine and the Middle East blossomed, and grew even stronger when she returned to the United States.

She worked with but did not join the Nation of Islam from 1962 to 1964. She served, among other capacities, as a Spanish language translator for the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. She met and worked with a who’s who of the Nation’s members, including Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan, Akbar Muhammad, and Sister Christine Johnson, the then principal of the Nation of Islam’s school. Sister Christine knew and was close to Kwame Nkrumah from his student days in 1935 at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania to his transition in Bucharest, Rumania in 1972.

An accomplished journalist, editor, translator and organizer, Ethel met and worked with a who’s who in the African Media community in Chicago, including Lerone Bennett, Hoyt Fuller, David Lloren’s, and others at Ebony and Jet magazines, and the Negro Digest, later named Black World magazine. She also worked closely with E. Rodney Jones, Wesley South, Don Cornelius, and others at WVON, and with Bobby Sengstacke at the Defender newspaper.

Ethel moved to New York in 1964, and she served as one of Malcolm X’s secretaries and translators. She also served as the office manager of the Organization for Afro-American Unity, and as a liaison to the African, Spanish speaking and Arab / Palestinian communities in New York, and to the United Nations and the media. Malcolm X’s murder on February 19, 1965, had a profound impact on her and changed her life forever.

At 33 years of age, in 1966, shortly after the Black Power March in Mississippi, Ethel moved to Atlanta and joined the national staff of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. She became Kwame Ture’s secretary, editor of SNCC’s newsletter, and served as a staff member in its National Communications Department from 1966 to 1968. Among countless other assignments, she coordinated Kwame’s speaking engagements, worldwide, for almost a decade; and wrote or helped edit many of his speeches, correspondence, articles, and  books. She responded to and helped manage thousands of media requests and interviews. Ethel helped make history. She was a “quiet storm.”

She also played a critical role in determining who would speak at the events that Kwame could not fulfill, and in assisting SNCC staff, volunteers, friends, and allies in their media work across the United States, and the world. Ethel worked with and alongside, and helped mid-wife, nurture and develop countless organizers and organizations within the Black Power, Pan-African, socialist, anti-repression, peace, student, and women’s movements from 1967 to 1975 – 1976. The release of the list of organizers and organizations she helped, and the documentation of their and her contributions to and achievements in the Movement will shock the world, and change the historical narrative, forever.

Seventeen of these SNCC and BPM organizers, including Ethel, who worked with Kwame from 1966 to 1972, served as the initial members of the Central Committee of the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party from 1972 through 1976. This list includes Cleve Sellers, Freddie Greene, and Willie Ricks in Atlanta, Greensboro, and DC; Jan Bailey, Koko Farrow-Barnes and Steve Farrow, Helen Leaks-Woodruff, and Paul and Evelyn Monroe in DC; Seku “Chico” and Renee Neblett in Boston; David Brothers, Bill Hall, Babu and Atim in New York and New Jersey; Lamin Jangha in Conakry; and Bob Brown in Chicago.

The A-APRP was called for in The Handbook of Revolutionary Warfare by Kwame Nkrumah in 1966-67; and he struggled to build it until his transition in 1972. It was publicly announced to almost 2,000 students, fifty years ago, at Howard University on September 17, 1972. Ethel and Jan, and the other members of the A-APRP’s DC cadre, organized announcement; and launched a worldwide recruitment drive.

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) proudly proclaims that we inherit and continue the revolutionary theory and practice of Kwame Nkrumah, Ahmed Sekou Toure and Kwame Ture. Truth be told, and it will be told one day, Kwame Ture did not come into or leave this world and the movement alone, and he did not navigate its commanding heights or treacherous depths alone. From 1966 to 1975-76, Ethel Minor was “a quiet storm” beneath his wings; a “fire storm,” protecting, enabling, and empowering him; and we are only now beginning to learn about, and enjoy the fruits of the seeds that Ethel helped sow. Ethel traveled to Guinea several times, and met and worked with, Nkrumah and Toure, albeit briefly.

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) does not mourn Ethel’s passing. Too much blood, sweat and tears have been shed, and will be shed; we will not cry. There are over 1.8 billion young people in the world today, 90 per cent of whom live in Asia—including Palestine and the Middle East—and Africa, and their Diasporas. There are more than 235 million youth in India, 225 million in China, and 108 million in the Middle East today; 211 million in Nigeria, 35 million in Sudan, 26 million in Egypt, 19.6 million in Azania (South Africa), 11.5 million in Ghana and 00 million in Guinea (Conakry); 50 million in Brazil, 43 million in the United States, and 20 million in Colombia (South America), alone. More Ethel Minors, of all colors, are being born every day and coming of revolutionary political age, much, much more.

It will be a great day when we see the smiles on young girls faces, not just African girls who live and suffer, study and struggle in 125 countries, islands, territories and dependencies in Africa and the African Diaspora, when they discover Ethel Minor, and learn about her work, study and struggle, her contributions, and achievements. From that dialectical moment, that revolutionary moment, they will know what they can do, what they must do to help liberate and unify African and Oppressed Humanity.

Armies of African, Palestinian, Indigenous, Hispanic, and Latino, European, and Other young, revolutionary women must be inspired, enabled, and empowered to help archive, write, and film Ethel’s story. We are sure that young, revolutionary men will also help. We trust that Judy and Bob Starks, and Ethel’s friends and family worldwide  will make that happen, soon, very, very soon. In the meantime, as Nkrumahists-Toureists, we continue Ethel’s, Kwame’s, and our work, study, and struggle. We continue to fight for revolutionary Pan-Africanism and socialism, and to help build the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC).

Victory is inevitable, but not in our lifetime!

Open Letter to Pope Francis I

Pan-African Roots sends

Open Letter to Pope Francis I & the Catholic Church

Requesting confirmation that:

God Makes No Slave in the Womb!

His Holiness Pope Francis I

Head of the Catholic Church,

Prefect of the Dicastery of Evangelization, and

Grand Master of the Supreme Order of Christ

Vatican City State 00120

Your Holiness and Eminences:

Pan-African Roots, a 501-c3 tax exempt network based in the United States, sends You, and tens of thousands of other stakeholders in every corner of Africa, the African Diaspora and the World, this email and two attached documents: (1) An Open Letter to Pope Francis and the Catholic Church Worldwide and (2) An Incomplete List of Papal Bulls and Related Treaties for and against Exploration and Discovery, Settlement and Colonization, Trafficking and Enslavement, and Forced Conversion.

Similar Open Letters and supportive documents will be sent, over the next few weeks, to other religious, spiritual and irreligious traditions, and to other stake holders throughout Africa, the African Diaspora and the World, especially to the Heads of States and Governments of Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Denmark and the Baltic countries, France, Great Britain, and the United States, and to their former and current Empires. We do not claim to speak for or on behalf of African People; we speak truth to them, and to the powerless and the powerful of the world. We do not compete with those forces who justly make this claim. We are a part of the records and information disclosure movement. We do not seek to build another organization; we demand the fullest and strongest accountability from all of those who exist today and will come into existence.

We are a part of the records disclosure movement. This is not a request for another apology for the crimes committed against hundreds of millions of African People during the genocide committed against, the trafficking in (trading), and enslavement of them from 1307 to 1888, or the crime being committed against 1.5 billion African People today. This is also not another demand for reparations, contracts, or grants of any kind. We do not compete with those forces who make these demands.

We request:

(1)    Confirmation that God Makes No Slaves in the Womb!

(2)    Translation, digitization, and disclosure of the 2000-year-old slavery era, colonial era and neo-colonial era records of the Catholic Church, and related entities, worldwide.

(3)    Inclusion of African and Poor Youth in every corner of Africa, the African Diaspora, and the World in every phase and aspect of this historic archival and scholarly project.

(4)    That you and the Catholic Church worldwide help create a new generation of anti-slavery and anti-trafficker, digital ninjas, digital archivists and scholars, organizers, priests, and lay people.

(5)    That you, the Catholic Church, and those civil society and governmental forces with whom you work, give every young person in the world a library card that enables and empower to access this record breaking and life-changing digital database. Give them also scholarships and the required resources to excel. In short, we request that you galvanize and unleash the fullest extent and power of the Papal Magisterium to meet the above requests. We believe that God and World Humanity will be very pleased. Pan-African Roots thanks you and all who join you in this project in advance for whatever consideration you give to our request.

Sincerely, 

Bob Brown, Director

A-APRP-GC DELEGATION HAS ARRIVED IN COLOMBIA

The People’s electoral victory in Colombia is another example of African, Indigenous, including mestizo, women and youth, workers, farmers and peasants, political prisoners, and former guerillas; anti-repression, anti-oppression and anti-exploitation tides that are, through struggle, sweeping every corner of the world.

KWAME NKRUMAH DAY

Pan-Africanism Must Be the Primary Objective of African Revolutionaries Worldwide

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) inherits, continues, and advances, to the best of our ability, the theory and practices of Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, Ahmed Sekou Toure and Kwame Ture. For us, the organization of Kwame Nkrumah Day must become an annual institution by all who claim adherence to the revolutionary struggle for Pan-Africanism and one of its most outstanding ideologues and organizers, Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah.

The A-APRP (GC) is opposed to, in principle, any cult of the personality or hero-worship. Kwame Nkrumah Day, therefore, is symbolic of our commemorating and honoring the mass struggles of African people and their Pan-Africanist revolutionary leadership fighting against all forms of oppression and exploitation; settler-colonialism, colonialism, balkanization and neo-colonialism in Africa and the world and for organizing the struggle for Pan-Africanism, including socialism, in all of its various expressions by African people worldwide.

Rampant ideological opportunism and confusion is widespread, particularly among the African intelligentsia, men and women, students, and youth, and within the Pan-African movement by those who claim to be Pan-Africanist and revolutionary, but do not make the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism primary in their political practice. There are those who claim Pan-Africanism, but merely seek reform and do not struggle for Revolution; they deny the validity of scientific socialism and class struggle and do not see themselves as being African and of the African nation; they do not advocate for nor advance the struggle for the unification of Africa nor belong to a Pan-Africanist organization. Kwame Nkrumah correctly taught, “Practice without theory is blind; theory without practice is empty.” The A-APRP (GC) has called for and continues with its energies to intensify the ideological and organizational revolutionary struggle against international imperialism, the oppression and exploitation of women, neo-colonialism, and zionism. The organization of Kwame Nkrumah Day is another effort towards that goal.

This year’s Kwame Nkrumah Day ideological focus is looking to engage in political struggle for greater clarity as to whether it is correct to say that if one claims to be a Pan-Africanist, then Pan-Africanism is the primary objective of African revolutionaries worldwide. The most important A-APRP (GC) goal, with this discussion, is to help cultivate and nurture, through dialog and debate, greater ideological unity, and organizational relationships within the Pan-African movement worldwide, particularly among African women, students and youth and their radical and revolutionary organizations.

Join us for this most important discussion for all of us to better understand the necessary expectations and needs from those individuals and organizations who claim Pan-Africanism.

A-APRP (GC) Announces Delegation to Colombia Presidential Inauguration 2022

President-Elect Gustavo Petro & Vice-President-Elect Francia Marquez

The A-APRP (GC)’s Colombia Delegation (July 27-August 11, 2022) Declares Solidarity and Unity with Humane Colombia, President-Elect Gustavo Petro, Vice-President-Elect Francia Marquez and the Colombian Masses!

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) and its women’s union, the All-African Women’s Revolutionary Union (GC) declares support and solidarity with Colombia Humana and Pacto Historico (Humane Colombia Coalition); President-elect Gustavo Petro (Patriotic Union); Vice-President-elect Francia Marquez (Alternative Democratic Pole) and the revolutionary forces among the African, Indigenous, European, Palestinian, and other sectors of the heroic Colombian masses and their hard-fought People’s electoral victory. The A-APRP (GC) is unequivocal in its analysis that this election is of critical importance not only as a victory for the People of Colombia, but particularly for Colombians of African descent.

The People’s electoral victory in Colombia is another example of African, Indigenous, including mestizo, women and youth, workers, farmers and peasants, political prisoners, and former guerillas; anti-repression, anti-oppression and anti-exploitation tides that are, through struggle, sweeping every corner of the world. The impact of this victory is also a beacon for what is possible through dedication, commitment, and unyielding struggle for the African masses, those in Africa and those in the rest of the Western Hemisphere, Europe, Asia, Australia, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and the South Pacific Islands. In our sight, this People’s electoral victory also represents another signal of the changing times, another symbol of hope and an additional inspiration for African and other struggling, justice and peace-seeking women worldwide. This election is another encouraging victory for all justice and peace-seeking Peoples worldwide!

Seasoned from years of struggle in the crucible of a demanding and uncompromising revolutionary fight for Human and Civil Rights, National Liberation, the Emancipation of Women and Youth, Black Power, Pan-Africanism and Scientific Socialism and assessing the current state of Pan-African and International affairs today, we have concluded that there are moments in the history of the Pan-African and International Peoples’ struggles that should not and cannot be missed and for us, traveling to Colombia, at this period in history, is one of those moments. This one moment in African and world history compels an A-APRP (GC) delegation, by the dictates of our Nkrumahist-Toureist values and principles, to travel to Colombia and celebrate with the Colombian people their historic presidential inauguration and as important, to reach out and forge greater political understanding and associations. We consciously inherit, continue, and seek to advance the revolutionary traditions and legacy of Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, Ahmed Sekou Toure and Kwame Ture. Principled and unyielding Pan-African and International Solidarity and Alliances are a part of these traditions.

Through uncompromising and grueling struggles and sacrifices the Colombian people created this quantitative and qualitative moment in history. The Colombian people decisively have chosen their path and have spoken clearly; they are ready to follow the lead and direction of Humane Colombia and its new government. History has documented that the People are the makers of history, and it is based on the People’s political consciousness and the quality of their organization that they and only they have the veracity to transform an oppressive and exploitative society into one that addresses both their material and immaterial needs and aspirations.

The A-APRP (GC) has studied the history of revolutionary struggles in Colombia and also in Central and South America, the Caribbean, Africa and the larger African Diaspora and the World. We openly believe that this People’s election represents another dialectical indicator of success in the Colombian People’s ongoing struggle to rid Colombia of international imperialism, militarism and domestic exploitation, the oppression of women, political repression and death squads, social injustices, and racism; principally with Colombian women, students and youth, the Indigenous Peoples and Nations, the Palestinian people and with those of African descent. It is our understanding and conclusion that this election represents a genuine opportunity to unite the Colombian people with one voice. In that struggle we are one with Colombia!

 We are joining the celebrations of the Colombian people, in Colombia, as our humble gesture and contribution, with our limited capabilities, to express our solidarity and unity with Humane Colombia, its member organizations and the heroic struggling Colombian masses who are struggling and sacrificing, every day, to bring justice, peace, dignity and prosperity to Colombia.

We send to Humane Colombia, our heartfelt revolutionary salutations, and congratulations! The A-APRP (GC) /A-AWRU (GC) will remain steadfast in its declaration of solidarity expressed in our commitment to work in camaraderie with the People of Colombia and in resilient unity with our Colombian compatriots of African descent.

We thank our Friends, Allies and Supporters for their assistance to help us achieve this political milestone not witnessed since the First Conference of the Latin American Organization of Solidarity (OLAS) July 10—August 10, 1967, to forge organic relationships with women’s organizations, cultural artists and groups, students and youth, university professors, community-based sports organizations and clubs and the radical and revolutionary movements of Colombian society.

Celebrating the Revolutionary Life of Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture

Click the Image Above to Access the Zoom Event: ID: 485 912 2617, Pass Code: wN86jm

Celebrating the Revolutionary Life of Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael)

Celebratory Theme: “Students Spark Revolution”

To: Africa’s and African People’s Allies, Friends, Supporters and Principally to African Students and Youth,

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) would be honored to have you join and help us celebrate the revolutionary life of Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture born June 29, 1941. Kwame transitioned to our revolutionary ancestors November 15, 1998. Our celebratory theme was/is one of Kwame’s many axioms, as he unswervingly declared, “Students Spark Revolution.” Kwame, in his own life, was exemplary of this axiom and epitomized its essence as a student who grew and developed into a Responsible of the revolutionary African intelligentsia.

The A-APRP (GC) thinks it an important celebratory theme, in Kwame’s name, to honor him and highlight African students and youth. African students’ role is critical in our revolutionary struggle at this juncture in African and world history. In our thinking, this is a dire period in history in the African and International revolutionary struggle against U.S. led imperialism, zionism, neo-colonialism and the oppression and exploitation of women. Of this there should be no question! The merciless mass suffering and preventable deaths of African and other Peoples, particularly women and children, perpetrated by imperialism and its allies is clear for all to see.

The A-APRP (GC) continues, to the best of its ability, with its African Liberation Day and Palestine (NAKBA) Day 2022 launched ideological and organizational offensive against U.S. led imperialism and for Pan-Africanism—One Unified Socialist Africa. The A-APRP (GC) is reaching out to connect with all like-minded organizations. We are also searching for any African, in Africa or abroad, who are ready for organization and want to work for the liberty and unity of the masses of our People worldwide. Organization Decides Everything! Although the A-APRP (GC) is small with meager resources in the face of the power and resources of imperialist exploitation our voice does not quiver.

We inherit advance and challenge African students, today, those in Africa and those in the African Diaspora, to play this role that Africa has assigned them in the revolutionary struggle for Pan-Africanism. Kwame Ture was taught by Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah and Ahmed Sekou Toure and was clear from his own theory and practice as a student and as a Responsible in the revolutionary African intelligentsia and from the study of African and world history that “The youth belong to the Revolution. . . . On our youth depends the future of Africa and the continent’s total liberation and unity.”[1] This zoom celebration is Sunday June 26, 2022, from 12:00-2:00 pm. All updates and information will be on our website at www.a-aprp-gc.org.

 We are celebrating Kwame’s contributions to the theory and practice of Nkrumahism-Toureism as applied to the objective of the African Revolution, which is Pan-Africanism, properly defined as, the total liberation and unification of African under scientific socialism. Kwame made it, in his words, “crystal clear” that for Pan-Africanism to be achieved this all-African revolutionary led struggle necessitated the building of an all-African mass revolutionary Pan-Africanist political party that demanded and worked tirelessly for the destruction of capitalism, imperialism, zionism, and neo-colonialism and the defeat of its neo-colonial puppets and for the total and complete emancipation of African women. Kwame never wavered on the question of the Nkrumahist-Toureist principles that guided his life.

So, we encourage and hope that you help us celebrate the revolutionary life of Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture. We are clear that Kwame touched many lives. He belongs to the African masses. In celebrating Kwame’s life, we are not just celebrating Kwame, we are celebrating the unbridled and relentless generational struggles of our People in Africa and throughout the African world for liberty, unity, justice, prosperity, and peace. We not only pay homage to his revolutionary past, it is now our responsibility to inherit, to continue and to prepare for our revolutionary future. African Students Are the Spark!

Protests Around the US on the 74th Commemoration of the Nakba

Israel murders three Palestinians in lead up to 74th commemoration of the Nakba

Attend one of dozens of events taking place around the country

This week, Naftali Bennett proclaimed that Israel “has sovereignty over all of Jerusalem”, in direct contradiction to United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334.

On Tuesday, the Israeli occupation demolished a residential building in annexed east Jerusalem leaving 35 people – mostly children – homeless. This is the sovereignty Mr. Bennett references, the freedom to destroy and shatter Palestinian lives.

Yesterday, Israeli occupation forces shot and killed U.S. citizen and Aljazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.

What tomorrow will bring is clear: a continuation of the Israeli occupation, a system of apartheid, and further displacement and dispossession of Palestinian families. Despite the odds, we can make a difference. At American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), we believe Americans have the ability to initiate change at home, here in the United States.

On the 74th anniversary of the Nakba, the Zionist mass expulsion campaign against indigenous Palestinians that led to the death of thousands and the displacement of over 1 million Palestinians, AMP encourages you to take a stand. Protests are taking place across the country and their success is directly dependent on your attendance and support!

Protest Rallies Around Canada on the 74th Anniversary of the Nakba

On the 74th Anniversary of the Nakba, Let’s Come Together Against Apartheid

May 12, 2022 IJV Canada

This year, like every year, Palestinians in Palestine and throughout the diaspora will mark May 15th as Nakba Day (“catastrophe” in Arabic). It is a day that marks Israel’s declaration of independence in 1948, and the ethnic cleansing of at least 750 000 Palestinians that took place between 1947-49.

The Nakba is sadly not a tragedy confined to history. It is alive and continuing today with Israel’s daily violence, displacement, and apartheid inflicted upon Palestinians. Echoes of the Nakba were felt throughout Palestine last week, when the Israeli high court of justice ruled to give a green light to the ethnic cleansing of Masafer Yatta. Masafer Yatta is an area with 2800 Palestinian residents in the south of the occupied West Bank, who now face what could be the largest mass-expulsion of Palestinians since 1967.

The Nakba is felt each time a Palestinian family is forcibly removed from their home. The Nakba is felt each year that the crushing siege on Gaza continues, and with each Israeli air strike. And the Nakba is felt each time Israeli forces violently raid some of Islam’s holiest sites, as was the case with the numerous attacks on the Al Aqsa compound during Ramadan last month.

This daily violence cannot continue. This year is the 74th year of the Nakba, and that is 74 years too long. As Jewish people of conscience, we cannot allow Israel to carry out these atrocities and perpetuate the Nakba in our names.

The situation is tragic, yet hopeful at the same time. Hopeful because the world is starting to wake up to the reality of these injustices. Over the last couple of years, the world’s leading human rights organizations have come to the conclusion that Israel is practicing apartheid. Here in Canada and around the world, members of parliament, human rights experts, academics, artists, Palestinians, Jews and people from all walks of life are coming together against apartheid. You can join them by signing the Together Against Apartheid pledge.Sign the pledge

On Thursday, May 12th at 7pm ET, please join us for an online commemoration of the Nakba, featuring personal stories and discussion. IJV’s national coordinator Corey Balsam will be one of the many wonderful speakers at this event.

Then on May 14th-15th, Nakba Day demonstrations and rallies will be happening in several Canadian cities. We encourage you to attend, and raise your voice in solidarity with Palestine. Different IJV chapters will have contingents in many of these rallies, so come look for IJV banners or placards, and march with us!

Unleashing an Offensive of 64 Years of African Liberation Day & Palestine (Nakba) Day: Intensifying the Revolutionary Struggle Against Capitalism & Imperialism, Zionism & Neo-Colonialism; Forward to Pan-Africanism – One Unified Socialist Africa

Unleashing an Ideological and Organizational Offensive

Commemorating and Building on 64 Years of African Liberation Day (ALD)

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) is an inheritor and continuator with a responsibility to advance the revolutionary theories and practices of Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, Ahmed Sekou Toure, Kwame Ture and African masses worldwide fighting for Pan-Africanism—One Unified Socialist Africa. This year the A-APRP (GC) is commemorating 64 years of African Liberation Day (ALD) and 74 years of the Palestine (NAKBA) Day in Palestine and the Palestinian Diaspora and we are calling for your help in unleashing a revolutionary mass Pan-African and International ideological and organizational offensive against international capitalism and imperialism, Zionism and Neo-colonialism and against the oppression and exploitation of women.

Capitalism, imperialism, Zionism and Neo-colonialism are all components of the same international system of exploitation. Women suffer most under this system as sexism, the oppression and exploitation of women is an ideological principle of capitalism, imperialism and Zionism. European capitalism and imperialism has intensified its economic, cultural and social , military and counter-intelligence directed terrorism, exploitation and oppression in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, North, South and Central America, and the South Pacific Islands, underlining Aotearoa (New Zealand), Azania/South Africa, Bolivia, Colombia, Congo, Egypt, Hawaii, Iraq, Ireland, Libya, Mali, Mexico, Palestine, Fiji and Solomon Islands, Somalia, Syria, Ukraine, Venezuela, West Papua New Guinea and Zimbabwe and other oppressed nationalities and of the working masses, worldwide.

In this regard, the A-APRP (GC) is clear that its responsibility today is to help build and develop a systemic capacity to disseminate culturally correct revolutionary mass Pan-Africanist and socialist political education to the African masses worldwide. We are also clear that the role of mass political education must be ultimately led and fulfilled by African intellectuals, students and youth! The A-APRP (GC) challenges our African intelligentsia, our anointed “scholars” and students and youth in Africa and the African Diaspora, to inherit and take ownership of and continue your historically determined role to be the revolutionary catalyst in the political education and organization of the masses of our People worldwide. “Practice without thought is blind; thought without action is empty”[1] is the guiding principle of our challenge to you.

The development of science, computerization, information and social media technology of today’s world offers a genuine possibility for the realization of this goal sooner than later. It is African intellectuals, students and youth who have the intellectual and technical understanding, know-how and energy to take command of this work. What is lacking is an understanding and the practice of the guiding principles of Nkrumahism-Toureism the ideology, we suggest, is the correct ideology of the African Revolution. The fundamental question our intellectuals, students and youth must answer is do you have the willingness and love of our People; the preparedness to suffer and sacrifice for them and most importantly to be a humble servant of the African masses?

The A-APRP (GC) remains steadfast and unwavering in our understanding of historical and social truth that Students Spark Revolution and Youth Are The Driving Force Of Revolution. We challenge African students and youth to inherit, take ownership and continue your historically  determined role and responsibility to be the revolutionary spark, the catalyst and driving force of the African Revolution with Pan-Africanism—One Unified Socialist Africa, as our objective. This role and responsibility must not be taken lightly as it cannot be realized outside of mass revolutionary organization. ORGANIZATION DECIDES EVERYTHING!

African students can and must ideologically fertilize the soil of Pan-Africanism, worldwide, because of your mobility and role in the germination and dissemination of new ideas. “University students in Sub-Saharan Africa have become the most mobile in the world, as about 5% of the 8.1 million tertiary students of the continent have crossed a border, as compared to the global average of 2.4%. . . .”[2] To make this point much clearer the demography of Africa helps to qualify this strategic question and points to the vitally important role of students and youth in the revolutionary struggle for Pan-Africanism—One Unified Socialist Africa.

“In 2020, the median age in Africa was 19.7 years, meaning half of the population was older and half was younger than that age. . . . Africa is the youngest continent in the world and presents the highest share of inhabitants aged 14 years and younger, that is, 41 percent of the total population.”[3] Hopefully, it is clearer that the organization of African students and youth is an objective necessity for the forward motion of the African Revolution.

We must also help organize and mobilize African women for Pan-Africanism and scientific socialism. “Just as the freedom of African women cannot be waged and pursued outside the context of the struggle of our Peoples for the liberation and emancipation of our continent, so the freedom of Africa cannot be effective if it does not lead, concretely, to the liberation of women of Africa.”[4] African women represent “701,892,117 out of a total population 1,403,748,455”[5] in Africa and African women are and must remain the heart of the African revolutionary struggle. Kwame Nkrumah was correct that “The degree of a country’s revolutionary awareness, may be measured by the political maturity of its women”[6], particularly when it is also correct to state that as it relates to the political education, organization and mobilization of the African students, youth and the Masses that “Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.”[7] Let it be clear that Nkrumah also included women in this axiom. Theory and practice is the only way to live for those who profess the love for our People and are for the unity, liberty and justice of African people worldwide.

The A-APRP (GC) also attempts to be diligent in its effort to continue with the building and cultivation of principled, strategic and tactical organic relationships with revolutionary Pan-Africanist, socialist and other African comrade organizations; with issue oriented and progressive reform focused African and International organizations, coalitions, and fronts and with revolutionary international comrade organizations and other political alliances worldwide.

African people are represented in every country on earth some through migration most by human trafficking and military force, particularly, under European capitalism and imperialism, to the Western Hemisphere. African people are powerless worldwide because Africa is controlled economically, culturally, militarily by European imperialism, including Zionism. The suffering of our People, with the technical and technological advances in world being as stellar as they are makes our national-racist oppression and class exploitation even more dastardly inhumane and criminal. Africa is a land of tremendous natural wealth with incredible intellectual and human labor, natural and mineral resources. Africa remains divided based on the decisions of the European convened, Berlin Conference of 1884. The relationship between Africa and European capitalism and imperialism benefits only capitalist Europe and not Africa. The only other beneficiaries, in Africa and the African Diaspora, of this arrangement are Africa’s Neo-colonial puppets who are the proxy class, the anti-People’s class, in Africa and in the African Diaspora who for a measly “tribute’s” penny, further our People’s national-racist oppression and class exploitation.

Not only is the A-APRP (GC) commemorating and reaffirming its inheritance and the continuing revolutionary struggle for Pan-Africanism and with it the liberation and emancipation of African people worldwide, particularly African women; we are in complete solidarity with the Palestinian Revolution and the revolutionary struggle to liberate Palestine from Zionist-imperialist settler-occupation. The revolutionary struggle to liberate Palestine is organically linked to the revolutionary struggle to rid Africa of the scourge of Zionism. The revolutionary struggle for a liberated Palestine is one with the revolutionary struggle to liberate and unite Africa under scientific socialism. Kwame Nkrumah proclaimed it best, “The emancipation of the African continent is the emancipation of man”[8] and that is the importance of the realization of Pan-Africanism to world humanity.

Ahmed Sekou Toure, explained this dialectical relationship between Palestine and Africa and Africa’s rejection of Zionism using the People’s Revolutionary Republic of Guinea as an example by clarifying “The cause being defended today by the Arab countries is inseparable from that which is being defended by the people of Guinea, Africa, and other continents. . . . Historically, Guinea cannot forget that during the last world war imperialism favored the installation of the future state of Israel in Guinea province, namely the Fouta Djallon highlands in central Guinea. This in fact meant that the Guinean people living in the Fouta Djallon region would have been expelled from their own land in the interest of Israel.

Behind Israel were the imperialist powers, who could impose the argument of force on the Guinean people. Had this plan been realized, Guinea’s independence would have had no significance because our people would have freed themselves from French colonization only to be subjected to that of Israel. Had this happened, the Guineans would today have the right to appeal for the solidarity of all people who love justice and freedom to support them in their liberation struggle against imperialism and Israel.”[9]

From the beginning of their colonizing mission, the racist settler-occupiers of Palestine also developed political, economic, cultural and military cooperation with their racist European settler relatives in Azania/South Africa as both practice apartheid and settler-colonialism on the Palestinian and Azanian/South African peoples, respectively. “The Jerusalem Post has noted that Israel ‘is the first country with which South Africa has set up a joint ministerial committee to promote economic cooperation. Political cooperation has been translated into more direct forms, both economic and military. The large Jewish population of South Africa, described by an Israeli newspapers as ‘one of the most vibrant Zionist-minded and supportive in the world, has made various significant contributions to Zionist settler-colonialism.”[10]

Other colonized countries in Africa, like Kenya and Uganda were targets of Zionist-imperialism from which the telescopic sights on the barrel of the Zionists’ guns were refocused to Palestine. The A-APRP (GC), representing genuine Pan-Africanists worldwide, therefore inherit and continue with the revolutionary solidarity with our comrades in Palestine and salute them and commemorate with them 74 years of Palestine Day (NAKBA) as an expression of our emerging revolutionary African Personality during this ideological and organizational African Liberation Day Offensive against Zionism and the occupation of Palestine.

People of Africa, arise!

Defeat imperialism, Neo-colonialism and settler domination.

Stand together and unite in the revolutionary struggle.

Forward to victory.

We shall conquer.[11]

African Liberation Day Commemorating 74 Years of Palestine (NAKBA) Day:

In Principled Solidarity with the Palestinian Revolution

This year marks the 74th year of the commemoration of the NAKBA in Palestine. ALL genuine Pan-Africanists are in solidarity with the Palestinian Revolution and have a hatred for Zionism. History has recorded that Judaism was and is used as the smoke-screen for the settler-colonial aspirations of international Zionism and its European racist-bourgeois nationalism. There can be no confusion and what must be clear is a Zionist cannot be a Jew nor can a Jew be a Zionist. That is impossible because the principles of Judaism and Zionism are incompatible! The first Jews were African, born in Ethiopia, therefore being a Jew cannot represent a nationality, only a believer in the religion of Judaism. Even Zionism validates this historical truth through its May 25, 1991, military covert operation, Operation Solomon, where the occupiers of Palestine, who are of European origin, air-lifted 14,325 Ethiopian Jews to Palestine in 36 hours.[12] Ethiopians, in Palestine, are now on the ground fighting Zionism and the occupiers of Palestine as they are nationally oppressed and economically exploited. Zionism is not a religion, Zionism is a backwards and reactionary bourgeois ideology; Zionism promotes and practices genocidal imperialism and Zionism promotes and practices racism.

Just as European capitalism and imperialism used Christianity and the church as an unethical and immoral racist smoke-screen to colonize the Western Hemisphere and then kidnap, traffic and enslave African people; so did European capitalism and imperialism use Judaism and the synagogue, to confuse religion with imperialism, to justify the expulsion of the Palestinian people from their land in the name “God” and then deny their right to return. The truth must be told, once again, on the question of Palestine.

The genocidal occupation of Palestine, by European Zionist-imperialism, was declared May 14, 1948, recognized by U.S. Imperialism, an ally of Zionism, that same day.  The occupation of Palestine was unethically and immorally sanctioned into international law by European imperialism, through one of its appendages, the United Nations (UN), May 11, 1949, as another “sovereign and independent” European settler-colonial state. Therefore, the liberation of Palestine, like all settler-colonial states, is a pre-condition for the possibility of international justice and world peace. Palestine is another victim of European settler-colonialism, which is an instrument of European imperialism. Where Judaism is an ancient religion, Zionism found its grounding at the First Zionist Congress, in Basle Switzerland in August 29-31, 1897.

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) knows the history of the Zionist movement and the development of Zionism very well and is immovable on our understanding of historical truth that Zionism is imperialism, Zionism is settler-colonialism and Zionism is racism. We inherit, continue and advance the analysis and hatred of Zionism by Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture as he taught, “Our eyes are now open: we have begun to see this trickery of Zionism; we have begun to see the evil of Zionism, and we will fight to wipe it out wherever it exists, in the Middle East or in the ghetto of the United States.”[13]

Zionism commits genocide on the Palestinian people and it is the occupiers of Palestine that play the role of a military imperialist outpost in the “Middle East” for European imperialism, particularly U.S. imperialism.  Zionism’s claim to Palestine is but a smoke screen for the colonization of any land from which they could reap the benefits of being a lap-dog of imperialism. Today, the A-APRP (GC) remains steadfast in its principled solidarity with the Palestinian revolutionary struggle against the occupation of Palestine and with it the right of each and every Palestinian to return to their Homeland, Palestine.

To this very day, as reported by Charlotte Kates of the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Network during their webinar, Resisting Anti-Palestinian Repression—Fighting for Liberation, March 6, 2022, “There is a concerted effort to attack the Palestinian movement for the liberation of Palestine and the Palestinian solidarity movement; of course this is nothing new. We have seen for the last 73 years the ongoing NAKBA in Palestine. We have seen for over 100 years the ongoing imperialist attack upon and colonization of Palestine.

Right now there are over 4,650 political prisoners behind bars in Zionist jails and this is in addition to prisoners of the Palestinian struggle who are also held behind bars in the jails of reactionary Arab regimes or in imperialist states, like the United States or in France. . . .”[14]

It is imperative that Africa and African people worldwide be in the forefront of the ideological and organizational Pan-African and international offensive in solidarity with the revolutionary struggle for the national liberation of Palestine from Zionist-imperialist settler-colonialism within the inseparable context and relationship to our struggle for Pan-Africanism—One Unified Socialist Africa and the  international revolutionary fight for scientific socialism.

THERE IS A TIME WHEN SILENCE IS BETRAYAL AND

 THAT TIME HAS PASSED ON THE QUESTION OF PALESTINE!

PALESTINE WILL BE FREE FROM THE RIVER TO THE SEA!

In Remembrance of Omama Amankwa Appiah

(November 14, 1957 – September 20, 2022)

Being an Nkrumahist/Nkrumahist-Toureist is to acquire the feat of understanding the importunacy of discipline. One of Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah’s rule of discipline is to “Always be the servant of the people.” This is one legacy and example that we can take from the life lesson of our Brother Omama Amankwa Appiah. Joining the Pan-African Movement in the late 70s, actively participating in the struggle against Decolonization in Ghana under the banner of the organization, Preparation Against Doomsday (PADD), becoming the Chairman in the late 90s of the Osagyefo Youth Movement (OYM) and later being appointed as the Chairman of the Organizational Committee of the Central Committee of the (CPP) in 2008; he gives us an example and reminds us of the honor of being a Servant of the People by approximately displaying 50 years or more serving the people.

It is here, that the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC)/A-APRP (GC) and its women wing the All-African Women’s Revolutionary Union (GC)/A-AWRU (GC) pay our respect and gratitude to our Brother Omama Amankwa Appiah reminding us all, particularly our youth/students of today of being a servant of the people is one of the highest role models that, one should strive to become/ be. We give praise to our Freedom Fighter, Nkrumahist and Pan-Africanist Organizer, Brother Omama Amankwa Appiah.
