Pan-Africanism: Our Objective

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party(GC) / Parti de la Revolution Populaire Africain de Guinee recognizes that African People born and living around the World are one People, with one identity, one history, one culture, one Nation and one destiny. We recognize capitalism, imperialism, colonialism, settler-colonialism, neo-colonialism, zionism, racism, apartheid, and sexism, as one common multi-form and multi-faceted enemy. We suffer from poverty and powerlessness, disease and ignorance, homelessness and humiliation, in every corner of the world, as a result of exploitation and oppression, corruption and opportunism, ideological confusion and organizational chaos. There is only one final solution to these problems, Pan-Africanism: the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism.

Pan-Africanism is rooted in generational struggle and history to build tribal and territorial states, empires and civilizations, and to politically unify our people and continent. It is an evolutionary and revolutionary developmental historical process of African People, in Africa and abroad, moving from smaller to ever larger and qualitative modes of production with corresponding socio-political structures. The building and construction of Egypt, Nubia, Axiom, Ghana, Mali, Songhai, Monopotapa, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Congo, Angola, and tens of thousands of other political and socio-economic entities, attests to the fact that through our own creative genius following the laws of development African People created civilization to improve the quality of our life and demonstrated movement towards continental nation building. This indigenous process was interrupted through countless wars against European and Asiatic invasions, colonization’s and dispersions.

The feudal slave traders and owners of Europe and the Americas, and their capitalist successors, sought to deny Africans from World humanity, stating we were divorced from history and devoid of culture. Africa, they blatantly lied, had created no civilization and thus we were outside of the process of World history and culture. Yet, as classes were indigenous to Africa and this process, so was the class struggle.

“Socialist revolutionaries seek a complete and fundamental transformation of society and the abolition of privileged classes.”

Due to the immoral and murderous dispersion of Africans through more than millennia of European and Asiatic trade of enslaved Africans, there was an appearance that Pan-Africanism was solely a national “racial” struggle based on biological identity. Reactionary African intellectuals, and their patrons worldwide, attempted to promote these ideas to our People and thus diminish their enthusiasm for their history of struggle, culture, and land. Unfortunately, many progressive and revolutionary forces in the World have attempted to do the same. This ideological view attempted to divide the African Masses, between those North and South of the Sahara, and from those in the African Diaspora, and divorce Pan-Africanism from the international struggle to destroy capitalism, imperialism, and zionism and the fight for socialism. These reactionary African intellectuals drank from the same racist bourgeois well of the capitalist ideologues. A fierce ideological struggle was waged and Sekou Toure weighed in with his revolutionary experience, insight and wisdom.

Sekou Toure, in a message sent to Tanzania, at the so-called 6th Pan-Africanist Congress, destroyed the intellectual myths of these reactionaries by making it clear that, “Pan-Africanism is henceforth the class struggle in Africa at the level of Africa and of her external branches. Being not conscious about it would be exposing ourselves to a confusion that imperialism would not miss exploiting. . . Is our friend, the great revolutionary of Cuba, Fidel Castro, not more hated by segregationists, fascists, than Black leaders who have become the accomplishes, the devoted and servile agents of those who exploit their brothers [and sisters] and ridicules cynically the rights of African Peoples?” (Ahmed Sekou Toure, Revolution, Pan-Africanism, and Culture, page 176-177).

Corruption, opportunism, confusion and chaos, material and immaterial, are enemies of Revolution. The A-APRP(GC) / PRPAG is crystal clear in our understanding that the Pan-African Movement is an integral part of the African and World Revolution and must remain inextricably linked to the international struggle against capitalism and imperialism and for socialism.

The A-APRP(GC) / Parti de la Revolution Populaire Africain de Guinee reaffirms that “the core of the Black Revolution is Africa and until Africa is united under a socialist government, the Black man [and woman] throughout the world lacks a National Home… (Accordingly), the total liberation and unification of Africa under an All-African Socialist Government must be the primary objective of all Black Revolutionaries throughout the world. It is an objective, which when achieved, will bring about the fulfillment of the aspirations of Africans and Peoples of African descent everywhere. It will, at the same time advance the triumph of the international socialist revolution”. (Kwame Nkrumah, Class Struggle in Africa, page 88).
