Who Can Join?

Every political movement, organization and party—revolutionary, reformist, or reactionary—has an ideology and objective, even if they are not conscious of it, and even if it is not codified, written down or named. Every revolutionary movement, organization and party makes their own unique contribution to the forward march and development, to the dialectic of revolutionary theory and practice—universal and particular. The fundamental task of every revolutionary movement, organization and party is to determine the human/motive forces of the revolution, its members, supporters and allies, and its enemies.

More than 1 billion Africans live in 69 zones (countries, islands, territories and dependencies) on the Continent of Africa, and more than 500 million Africans live in at least 131 zones (countries, territories and dependencies) in Asia, Oceania, the Americas and Europe. We are One African People, Citizens of One Continental African Nation, with One Common Objective, Pan-Africanism, which Osagefyo Kwame Nkrumah has correctly defined as the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism.
