Three Moments in Biography and History!
A Life-time of Study and Struggle, Service, Sacrifice and Suffering!
A Revolutionary Tribute To Chuck Kaufman and the Alliance for Global Justice!
Pan-African Roots, the African Awareness Association and the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) offer Condolences to the Family, Co-workers, Supporters, and Allies of Chuck Kaufman and the Alliance for Global Justice. There are moments in biography and history that are hard to discern, yet fatal if let slip by. There are also moments that are equally as hard to discern, yet pregnant with the potential for birth and rebirth, growth and development. This is one such moment.
We had the honor to work with Chuck and AfGJ on numerous projects and countless barricades for almost four decades. Permit us to summarize three of those moments in his political biography, in the history of the Latin American (Caribbean, Central and South American) and ALBA Solidarity Movements, in the history of the Alliance for Global Justice and its affiliated networks, and our organizations, party and networks.
Details of this relationship are offered in our Statement which is posted at http://a-aprp-gc.org.
Moment #1: 1952
Chuck Kaufman was born in 1952. He is one of the hundreds of millions of babies who were born in every corner of the world between 1946 and 1964.
Moment #2: 1967
Chuck “joined the movement” in 1967, at the age of 15. Hundreds of millions of youth “joined the movement,” worldwide, at the same age. Our stories will be told!
He is symbolic of the Baby Boomers’ coming of political age. His movement contributions are symbolic of hundreds of millions of People who helped change the world, even though not as we dreamed, not enough, and not permanently. When we joined the movement, we were promised nothing but “long hard struggle, long-hard sacrifice and suffering; and victory in the end; though not in our life-time.” That promise has been kept, so far.
Moment #3: 28 December 2021
Chuck made his transition on 28 December 2021, a much needed, earned and deserved rest. Not yet Uhuru! Not yet Victory! Not yet a Better World!
Today is the first day of the Alliance for Global Justices’ continuing life. A new generation inherits and continues Chuck’s tradition and legacy. Our organizations and party are very small and poor; but we will help AfGJ, and its affiliated network, in any way we can.
It is also the first day of Pan-African Roots’, the African Awareness Associations’, and the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC)’s continuing relationship with the Alliance for Global Justice and the hemispheric network that it and we serve.
Rest assured that we will continue and intensify our work, as best we can, to the last second of our lives. We seek, and have sought for more than six decades, principled, uncompromising and revolutionary political alliance and solidarity; but rest equally assured that we will continue and intensify our work alone, if necessary and unavoidable.
Victory is inevitable, though not in our lifetime!
