MR CLASSICS: CONSCIENCISM
MARCH 13, 11 A.M. ET (DAYLIGHT SAVINGS)

We are very glad to to announce a new series charting movement memory, titled MR CLASSICS, starting with Kwame Nkrumah’s thought, the philosophy he called ‘Consciencism.” We are honored that Dr. Charisse Burden-Stelly and Dr. Layla Brown will be here to guide us through this seminal work. We will deeply consider its contemporary relevance — that is, the issues it raises — which remain unresolved — and the questions it continues to inspire.

Victory to Russia, and the Russian and Ukrainian Peoples!

Another Note From The Barricades!

A Pan-African Roots Blog

By Bob Brown

26 February 2022

An Open Letter to the People of Africa, the African Diaspora, and the World!

“VICTORY TO RUSSIA, AND THE RUSSIAN AND UKRAINIAN PEOPLES!”

See Russian military attack on Ukraine: How we got there!

[Note: “Moscow says the current situation is the result of years of failed talks to end the bloodshed in eastern Ukraine after the 2014 coup in Kiev.” By Russia Today!]

There are moments in history, that are fatal if let slip by; this is one such moment for Pan-African Roots and Bob Brown! There are moments when silence becomes betrayal of the principles in which we believe; when we must choose sides. UKRAINE is one such moment for Bob Brown! I know the price I will have to pay for this decision and am prepared to pay it.

I do not pretend to speak for anyone and am prepared to stand alone! I know the price so many have paid and continue to pay for daring to speak truth to the powerless and the powerful!

  • In 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, SCLC and the pacifist and nonviolent wings of the Movement demanded “Peace in Vietnam!”
  • Several leftist forces demanded “Bring the Boys Home!”
  • Muhamad Ali and the Nation of Islam said it simpler and more eloquent “I ain’t got no war with Vietnam!” and “The Vietnamese never called me a nigger!”
  • Osagefyo Kwame Nkrumah was overthrown for daring to go to China and Vietnam in search for peace, and ultimately, for the victory of Oppressed Humanity.
  • The “radical and revolutionary wing” of SNCC and SDS, shouted “Hell No We Ain’t Going!” “Smash the Draft!” and “Victory to the Viet Cong!

I did not go to Vietnam, the draft was smashed, and the Vietnamese won. I know the price they paid for this victory. I know the price that Russia paid during World War I and World II. The United States and Western Imperialism has been at war with Russia since the Russian Revolution of 1917. The U.S. and its agents and co-conspirators are waging war and COINELPRO and cointelpro-like operations in every corner of Africa, the African Diaspora and the World. Enough is enough!
My slogan is consistent and simple:

“VICTORY TO RUSSIA, AND THE RUSSIAN AND UKRAINIAN PEOPLE!”

I know that I am correct, principally! Perhaps you know it as well. I respect the right of other forces, on the left, to have their perspective, and to pursue their strategy and tactics; even if they disagree with and disrespect me! “God blesses the child who has her/his own.” Success to the current wave of study, work and action in the eternal quest for peace and justice.

I do not respect the policies or practices of the U.S. government, or any of its agents and co-conspirators, regardless of the color, gender, language or spirituality. I’ve heard their bullshit before. I do not agree with or respect the Clintons, Obama, Biden or Harris; Bush or Trump, and I ask the question we asked of LBJ in 1968, how many have you killed, and how many are you killing today. They were not principled or right in 1968; they are not principled or right in 2022; and they will never be principled or right! The anti-People forces, are on the offensive in every corner of the world.

·        Enable and empower the People to go to Zoom and the barricades, in every corner of Africa, the African Diaspora and the World, any way and every way you can!

·        Give peace, non-violence and diplomacy a chance!

·        Give defensive war, people’s war, and just war, a chance as well.

·        Victory to Oppressed Humanity, “by any and all means” necessary, available and principled.

For your Information, one of our videos, Another Note from the Barricades, was just uploaded to the internet. Check it out, when you have the time! A-APRP (GC)

Stay Safe and Strong!

Revolutionary Condolences: Clyde Bellecourt

You/We Have Felt the Thunder – Now the Coming of the Storm!

In Remembrance of

Clyde Bellecourt

Co-Founder of the American Indian Movement

(May 6, 1936 – January 11, 2022)

Kwame Ture always said that when you make a mistake and don’t correct it, you’ve made two mistakes.  It is with this understanding, we offer our humble apology for the lateness of our condolences, for the honor of having known and been in solidarity with Clyde Bellecourt and the American Indian Movement (AIM).

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) and our women’s wing, the All-African Women’s Revolutionary Union (GC) takes great pride in one of the most important lessons and demonstrative actions, that the life of our Brother Clyde Bellecourt taught, reinforced, and confirmed to his People/Nation and to all oppressed peoples summarized in a statement by the first President of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah, who instructed about the importance of the presentation of a People’s history.  We borrow from Nkrumah’s philosophy as detailed in his book, “Consciencism: Philosophy and Ideology for Decolonization” in saying:       

In the new Indigenous renaissance, we must place great emphasis on the presentation of history.  The Indigenous Peoples history needs to be written as the history of the Indigenous society, not as the story of European adventures.  Indigenous society must be treated as enjoying its own integrity; Indigenous history must be a mirror of that society, and the European contact must find its place in this history only as an Indigenous experience, even if as a crucial one.  That is to say, the European contact needs to be assessed and judged from the point of view of the principles animating Indigenous society, and from the point of view of the harmony and progress of their society.

Clyde Bellecourt advanced his legacy by helping to build an educational institution, named Heart of the Earth Survival School, along with a Center for Indian Youth and an Opportunities Industrialization Center/OIC, a job program for his People/Nation in 1972 and 1998 for the sole purpose of instilling this lesson and philosophy into the minds and hearts of his People, especially the youth.  We know that a forgotten past or history will create a people with a forgotten identity.  We salute Clyde for this achievement in the fight against cultural imperialism and domination.

Clyde epitomized boldness, tenacity and bravery through his struggles against various forms of oppression from the 1972 march -Trail of Broken Treaties, the 1973 Wounded Knee Occupation at Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, the Longest Walk Protest (5 months long) in 1978, against police brutality in 1998, spurring his participation in the resistance to an underground oil pipeline at the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in 2016 which are acts of rebellion and resistance for the liberation of his nation (White Earth Nation) and all Indigenous Peoples’ Movements and Humanity.  In this work, Clyde was a granite rock of resistance to be emulated and remembered forever.

Clyde’s ogichidaa (warrior spirit) like behavior and attitude served as an example of defiance and steadfastness against any forms of indignity and disrespect toward Indigenous Peoples’ cultures.  Clyde challenged the national and international racial attitudes that were displayed in American sports and worldwide, which appeared that in his mind left him no choice, but to use the weapon of organization as the tool for change and to challenge this racist behavior.  Clyde helped mobilize, develop, and coordinate activities in opposition to racism by creating an organization called The National Coalition on Racism in Sports and the Media in 1998.  Clyde left us the tool of organization and showed us how to use it continuing this battle as a part of his legacy.

Finally, we know Clyde Bellecourt as a co-founder of the American Indian Movement (AIM) in 1968; a nationalist and internationalist, a freedom fighter for justice, an alliance maker and coalition builder; a U.S. Bombing/Blockade Buster (Libya); an ally and friend to Africa and African people worldwide; and to Palestine and the Palestinian People, to Ireland and the Irish People and all oppressed Peoples.  This is a relationship that we, through the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), Black Panther Party, All African People’s Revolutionary, All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) have nurtured and shared with our brother Clyde, AIM and the Indigenous Peoples in the Western Hemisphere for over 54 years.  The struggle continues…

The A-APRP (GC) sends revolutionary condolences to Clyde’s biological and ideological families, friends, and allies of his works & life’s mission.  The A-APRP (GC) does not mourn Clyde’s transition to the ancestors, but his legacy inspires us to pick up his torch of independence, dignity, sovereignty, liberation, justice, peace, and freedom and carry it to the finish line.  On this day, Thursday, January 27, 2022, we make our final salute to: NeeGawNwayWeeDun – Clyde Bellecourt.

We Stand, Ready for the Revolution,

Secretary, Pan-African and International Affairs

All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC)

Revolutionary Condolences: Hadja Aminata Toure

To: Sekoutoureism Movement of Guinea 

Fr: All-African People’s Revolutionary) Party (GC) 

Re: The Transition of Sister and Compatriot Hadja Aminata Toure 

 

Revolutionary Condolences on the Transition of Hadja Aminata Toure 

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) and its women’s union, the All-African Women’s Revolutionary Union (GC) sends our revolutionary heartfelt condolences and empathy to the Toure family; to the People of Guinea and the Sekoutoureism Movement regarding the transition of our sister, Hadja Aminata Toure, who has joined our ancestors.  The A-APRP (GC)/A-AWRU (GC) does not mourn but celebrates the lives of all who live a life in service of the People.  It is our understanding that sister and compatriot Aminata Toure was one of those persons who served the People and we therefore acknowledge and celebrate her life of service and work. Ahmed Sekou Toure, her biological and also an ideological father to us all, taught us, “If life is limited for man, it is not limited for the People” and therefore the A-APRP (GC)/A-AWRU (GC)  expresses its praise of Aminata Toure’s work and contributions, while with us, in improving the lives of our People in Guinea, which has now defined her character and recorded her legacy in history.

Three Moments in Biography and History!

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!

Chuck Kaufman, Presente!
