The A-APRP (GC)’s Recruitment and Orientation Brochure #5
“Practice without thought is blind; thought without practice is empty. Kwame Nkrumah
“Theory, however necessary, relies on practice which actualizes, materializes and develops it; and practice in its turn inevitably relies on theory which subtends, enlightens and develops it. This is the dialectical link between theory and practice. Neither of them can exist without the other.” Sekou Toure
Members of the A-APRP (GC) participate in a rigorous inspiring and life-long process of political education, ideological training, Party building study and work, and revolutionary struggle though our Party School and Online Community, Party structures and mass organizations, and/or in a Pre-Cadre or Cadre Development Circles, or Support Group, where conditions allow.
The primary work of A-APRP (GC) is mass political education and our members are to be among African students/youth, workers, intellectuals, peasants, and women to politically educate and serve them and to be a model of the new African man and woman and through our willingness to engage them and respect their opinions and willingness to struggle with them over their ideas and beliefs introduce them to Nkrumahism-Toureism and recruit them as new members into the Party. This work also requires that the same attitude and fortitude be done with other nationalities and Peoples as well, as potential allies and supporters, who are engaged in a common struggle against capitalism, zionism, and imperialism for national liberation and unity, human and democratic rights, women’s emancipation, the elimination of all forms of oppression and exploitation, socialism, and peace. Party members will also educate and train new recruits into the organizational methods, policies, and procedures of the Party and participate in the structures of the Party that facilitate democratically made decisions of which are binding on all Party members. Sekou Ture correctly states that “Theory and practice constitute the same reality. The presence of theory cannot be denied in any practice and at whatever technical level. But this theory, however brilliant it may appear, can be defended except through its application; through the achievement of its objective and the significance this objective gives to the satisfaction of the People’s needs.” [Ahmed Sekou Toure. Enhancing the People’s Power, Volume XII.] The transformation of our membership into uncompromising and staunch Nkrumahist-Toureist revolutionaries will be done in the crucible of revolutionary work, struggle, and the sacrifices necessary to advance our People’s struggle. All members of the A-APRP (GC) must be a part of our Online Community, particularly our Cadre, Pre-Cadre and Supporters.
The A-APRP (GC) places unyielding emphasis in ideological training and ideological development of its members and for the African Masses. As a revolutionary Pan-Africanist party that seeks to unify the African Masses to realize Pan-Africanism, we know that “. . . an ideology does not seek merely to unite a section of the people; it seeks to unite the whole society in which it finds itself.” [Kwame Nkrumah. Consciencism: Philosophy and Ideology for Decolonization] Therefore ideology must be the basis around which our People unite and we assert that Nkrumahism-Toureism is that ideology for African people. The A-APRP (GC) chooses not to be a Party of bourgeois scholars and intellectuals who pontificate in an ivory tower isolated and divorced from our People’s struggle for liberation, unification, socialism, and peace. History has amply documented that it is the masses of the People who are the makers of history and therefore our research and study is for the sole purpose of being applied and tested hand-in-hand with the oppressed and exploited African Masses to concretely and permanently address the problems of real life and help transform ourselves, the People, and the societies in which we live. “A Political mass Party always appears as the school, the testing ground where the masses learn how to conquer and usefully exercise political power.” [Democratic Party of Guinea. XIIth National Congress of the Democratic Party of Guinea (PDG), Policy and Ideology] Research and study is intellectual work and is a critical component and absolutely necessary in the process of developing Nkrumahist-Toureist cadre who must develop an unequivocal mastery of the science of Revolution. All members of the A-APRP (GC) must be a part of our Party School, particularly our cadre and pre-cadre. This is a living and breathing document, it will and must change, as our level of information, knowledge, experience and wisdom changes.
