Celebrating the Revolutionary Life of Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael)

Celebratory Theme: “Students Spark Revolution”

To: Africa’s and African People’s Allies, Friends, Supporters and Principally to African Students and Youth,

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) would be honored to have you join and help us celebrate the revolutionary life of Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture born June 29, 1941. Kwame transitioned to our revolutionary ancestors November 15, 1998. Our celebratory theme was/is one of Kwame’s many axioms, as he unswervingly declared, “Students Spark Revolution.” Kwame, in his own life, was exemplary of this axiom and epitomized its essence as a student who grew and developed into a Responsible of the revolutionary African intelligentsia.

The A-APRP (GC) thinks it an important celebratory theme, in Kwame’s name, to honor him and highlight African students and youth. African students’ role is critical in our revolutionary struggle at this juncture in African and world history. In our thinking, this is a dire period in history in the African and International revolutionary struggle against U.S. led imperialism, zionism, neo-colonialism and the oppression and exploitation of women. Of this there should be no question! The merciless mass suffering and preventable deaths of African and other Peoples, particularly women and children, perpetrated by imperialism and its allies is clear for all to see.

The A-APRP (GC) continues, to the best of its ability, with its African Liberation Day and Palestine (NAKBA) Day 2022 launched ideological and organizational offensive against U.S. led imperialism and for Pan-Africanism—One Unified Socialist Africa. The A-APRP (GC) is reaching out to connect with all like-minded organizations. We are also searching for any African, in Africa or abroad, who are ready for organization and want to work for the liberty and unity of the masses of our People worldwide. Organization Decides Everything! Although the A-APRP (GC) is small with meager resources in the face of the power and resources of imperialist exploitation our voice does not quiver.

We inherit advance and challenge African students, today, those in Africa and those in the African Diaspora, to play this role that Africa has assigned them in the revolutionary struggle for Pan-Africanism. Kwame Ture was taught by Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah and Ahmed Sekou Toure and was clear from his own theory and practice as a student and as a Responsible in the revolutionary African intelligentsia and from the study of African and world history that “The youth belong to the Revolution. . . . On our youth depends the future of Africa and the continent’s total liberation and unity.”[1] This zoom celebration is Sunday June 26, 2022, from 12:00-2:00 pm. All updates and information will be on our website at www.a-aprp-gc.org.

 We are celebrating Kwame’s contributions to the theory and practice of Nkrumahism-Toureism as applied to the objective of the African Revolution, which is Pan-Africanism, properly defined as, the total liberation and unification of African under scientific socialism. Kwame made it, in his words, “crystal clear” that for Pan-Africanism to be achieved this all-African revolutionary led struggle necessitated the building of an all-African mass revolutionary Pan-Africanist political party that demanded and worked tirelessly for the destruction of capitalism, imperialism, zionism, and neo-colonialism and the defeat of its neo-colonial puppets and for the total and complete emancipation of African women. Kwame never wavered on the question of the Nkrumahist-Toureist principles that guided his life.

So, we encourage and hope that you help us celebrate the revolutionary life of Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture. We are clear that Kwame touched many lives. He belongs to the African masses. In celebrating Kwame’s life, we are not just celebrating Kwame, we are celebrating the unbridled and relentless generational struggles of our People in Africa and throughout the African world for liberty, unity, justice, prosperity, and peace. We not only pay homage to his revolutionary past, it is now our responsibility to inherit, to continue and to prepare for our revolutionary future. African Students Are the Spark!

Protests Around the US on the 74th Commemoration of the Nakba

Israel murders three Palestinians in lead up to 74th commemoration of the Nakba

Attend one of dozens of events taking place around the country

This week, Naftali Bennett proclaimed that Israel “has sovereignty over all of Jerusalem”, in direct contradiction to United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334.

On Tuesday, the Israeli occupation demolished a residential building in annexed east Jerusalem leaving 35 people – mostly children – homeless. This is the sovereignty Mr. Bennett references, the freedom to destroy and shatter Palestinian lives.

Yesterday, Israeli occupation forces shot and killed U.S. citizen and Aljazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh.

What tomorrow will bring is clear: a continuation of the Israeli occupation, a system of apartheid, and further displacement and dispossession of Palestinian families. Despite the odds, we can make a difference. At American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), we believe Americans have the ability to initiate change at home, here in the United States.

On the 74th anniversary of the Nakba, the Zionist mass expulsion campaign against indigenous Palestinians that led to the death of thousands and the displacement of over 1 million Palestinians, AMP encourages you to take a stand. Protests are taking place across the country and their success is directly dependent on your attendance and support!

Protest Rallies Around Canada on the 74th Anniversary of the Nakba

On the 74th Anniversary of the Nakba, Let’s Come Together Against Apartheid

May 12, 2022 IJV Canada

This year, like every year, Palestinians in Palestine and throughout the diaspora will mark May 15th as Nakba Day (“catastrophe” in Arabic). It is a day that marks Israel’s declaration of independence in 1948, and the ethnic cleansing of at least 750 000 Palestinians that took place between 1947-49.

The Nakba is sadly not a tragedy confined to history. It is alive and continuing today with Israel’s daily violence, displacement, and apartheid inflicted upon Palestinians. Echoes of the Nakba were felt throughout Palestine last week, when the Israeli high court of justice ruled to give a green light to the ethnic cleansing of Masafer Yatta. Masafer Yatta is an area with 2800 Palestinian residents in the south of the occupied West Bank, who now face what could be the largest mass-expulsion of Palestinians since 1967.

The Nakba is felt each time a Palestinian family is forcibly removed from their home. The Nakba is felt each year that the crushing siege on Gaza continues, and with each Israeli air strike. And the Nakba is felt each time Israeli forces violently raid some of Islam’s holiest sites, as was the case with the numerous attacks on the Al Aqsa compound during Ramadan last month.

This daily violence cannot continue. This year is the 74th year of the Nakba, and that is 74 years too long. As Jewish people of conscience, we cannot allow Israel to carry out these atrocities and perpetuate the Nakba in our names.

The situation is tragic, yet hopeful at the same time. Hopeful because the world is starting to wake up to the reality of these injustices. Over the last couple of years, the world’s leading human rights organizations have come to the conclusion that Israel is practicing apartheid. Here in Canada and around the world, members of parliament, human rights experts, academics, artists, Palestinians, Jews and people from all walks of life are coming together against apartheid. You can join them by signing the Together Against Apartheid pledge.Sign the pledge

On Thursday, May 12th at 7pm ET, please join us for an online commemoration of the Nakba, featuring personal stories and discussion. IJV’s national coordinator Corey Balsam will be one of the many wonderful speakers at this event.

Then on May 14th-15th, Nakba Day demonstrations and rallies will be happening in several Canadian cities. We encourage you to attend, and raise your voice in solidarity with Palestine. Different IJV chapters will have contingents in many of these rallies, so come look for IJV banners or placards, and march with us!

ALD/PD 2022 Theme Statement

Unleashing an Offensive of 64 Years of African Liberation Day & Palestine (Nakba) Day: Intensifying the Revolutionary Struggle Against Capitalism & Imperialism, Zionism & Neo-Colonialism; Forward to Pan-Africanism – One Unified Socialist Africa

Unleashing an Ideological and Organizational Offensive

Commemorating and Building on 64 Years of African Liberation Day (ALD)

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) is an inheritor and continuator with a responsibility to advance the revolutionary theories and practices of Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, Ahmed Sekou Toure, Kwame Ture and African masses worldwide fighting for Pan-Africanism—One Unified Socialist Africa. This year the A-APRP (GC) is commemorating 64 years of African Liberation Day (ALD) and 74 years of the Palestine (NAKBA) Day in Palestine and the Palestinian Diaspora and we are calling for your help in unleashing a revolutionary mass Pan-African and International ideological and organizational offensive against international capitalism and imperialism, Zionism and Neo-colonialism and against the oppression and exploitation of women.

Capitalism, imperialism, Zionism and Neo-colonialism are all components of the same international system of exploitation. Women suffer most under this system as sexism, the oppression and exploitation of women is an ideological principle of capitalism, imperialism and Zionism. European capitalism and imperialism has intensified its economic, cultural and social , military and counter-intelligence directed terrorism, exploitation and oppression in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, North, South and Central America, and the South Pacific Islands, underlining Aotearoa (New Zealand), Azania/South Africa, Bolivia, Colombia, Congo, Egypt, Hawaii, Iraq, Ireland, Libya, Mali, Mexico, Palestine, Fiji and Solomon Islands, Somalia, Syria, Ukraine, Venezuela, West Papua New Guinea and Zimbabwe and other oppressed nationalities and of the working masses, worldwide.

In this regard, the A-APRP (GC) is clear that its responsibility today is to help build and develop a systemic capacity to disseminate culturally correct revolutionary mass Pan-Africanist and socialist political education to the African masses worldwide. We are also clear that the role of mass political education must be ultimately led and fulfilled by African intellectuals, students and youth! The A-APRP (GC) challenges our African intelligentsia, our anointed “scholars” and students and youth in Africa and the African Diaspora, to inherit and take ownership of and continue your historically determined role to be the revolutionary catalyst in the political education and organization of the masses of our People worldwide. “Practice without thought is blind; thought without action is empty”[1] is the guiding principle of our challenge to you.

The development of science, computerization, information and social media technology of today’s world offers a genuine possibility for the realization of this goal sooner than later. It is African intellectuals, students and youth who have the intellectual and technical understanding, know-how and energy to take command of this work. What is lacking is an understanding and the practice of the guiding principles of Nkrumahism-Toureism the ideology, we suggest, is the correct ideology of the African Revolution. The fundamental question our intellectuals, students and youth must answer is do you have the willingness and love of our People; the preparedness to suffer and sacrifice for them and most importantly to be a humble servant of the African masses?

The A-APRP (GC) remains steadfast and unwavering in our understanding of historical and social truth that Students Spark Revolution and Youth Are The Driving Force Of Revolution. We challenge African students and youth to inherit, take ownership and continue your historically  determined role and responsibility to be the revolutionary spark, the catalyst and driving force of the African Revolution with Pan-Africanism—One Unified Socialist Africa, as our objective. This role and responsibility must not be taken lightly as it cannot be realized outside of mass revolutionary organization. ORGANIZATION DECIDES EVERYTHING!

African students can and must ideologically fertilize the soil of Pan-Africanism, worldwide, because of your mobility and role in the germination and dissemination of new ideas. “University students in Sub-Saharan Africa have become the most mobile in the world, as about 5% of the 8.1 million tertiary students of the continent have crossed a border, as compared to the global average of 2.4%. . . .”[2] To make this point much clearer the demography of Africa helps to qualify this strategic question and points to the vitally important role of students and youth in the revolutionary struggle for Pan-Africanism—One Unified Socialist Africa.

“In 2020, the median age in Africa was 19.7 years, meaning half of the population was older and half was younger than that age. . . . Africa is the youngest continent in the world and presents the highest share of inhabitants aged 14 years and younger, that is, 41 percent of the total population.”[3] Hopefully, it is clearer that the organization of African students and youth is an objective necessity for the forward motion of the African Revolution.

We must also help organize and mobilize African women for Pan-Africanism and scientific socialism. “Just as the freedom of African women cannot be waged and pursued outside the context of the struggle of our Peoples for the liberation and emancipation of our continent, so the freedom of Africa cannot be effective if it does not lead, concretely, to the liberation of women of Africa.”[4] African women represent “701,892,117 out of a total population 1,403,748,455”[5] in Africa and African women are and must remain the heart of the African revolutionary struggle. Kwame Nkrumah was correct that “The degree of a country’s revolutionary awareness, may be measured by the political maturity of its women”[6], particularly when it is also correct to state that as it relates to the political education, organization and mobilization of the African students, youth and the Masses that “Revolutions are brought about by men, by men who think as men of action and act as men of thought.”[7] Let it be clear that Nkrumah also included women in this axiom. Theory and practice is the only way to live for those who profess the love for our People and are for the unity, liberty and justice of African people worldwide.

The A-APRP (GC) also attempts to be diligent in its effort to continue with the building and cultivation of principled, strategic and tactical organic relationships with revolutionary Pan-Africanist, socialist and other African comrade organizations; with issue oriented and progressive reform focused African and International organizations, coalitions, and fronts and with revolutionary international comrade organizations and other political alliances worldwide.

African people are represented in every country on earth some through migration most by human trafficking and military force, particularly, under European capitalism and imperialism, to the Western Hemisphere. African people are powerless worldwide because Africa is controlled economically, culturally, militarily by European imperialism, including Zionism. The suffering of our People, with the technical and technological advances in world being as stellar as they are makes our national-racist oppression and class exploitation even more dastardly inhumane and criminal. Africa is a land of tremendous natural wealth with incredible intellectual and human labor, natural and mineral resources. Africa remains divided based on the decisions of the European convened, Berlin Conference of 1884. The relationship between Africa and European capitalism and imperialism benefits only capitalist Europe and not Africa. The only other beneficiaries, in Africa and the African Diaspora, of this arrangement are Africa’s Neo-colonial puppets who are the proxy class, the anti-People’s class, in Africa and in the African Diaspora who for a measly “tribute’s” penny, further our People’s national-racist oppression and class exploitation.

Not only is the A-APRP (GC) commemorating and reaffirming its inheritance and the continuing revolutionary struggle for Pan-Africanism and with it the liberation and emancipation of African people worldwide, particularly African women; we are in complete solidarity with the Palestinian Revolution and the revolutionary struggle to liberate Palestine from Zionist-imperialist settler-occupation. The revolutionary struggle to liberate Palestine is organically linked to the revolutionary struggle to rid Africa of the scourge of Zionism. The revolutionary struggle for a liberated Palestine is one with the revolutionary struggle to liberate and unite Africa under scientific socialism. Kwame Nkrumah proclaimed it best, “The emancipation of the African continent is the emancipation of man”[8] and that is the importance of the realization of Pan-Africanism to world humanity.

Ahmed Sekou Toure, explained this dialectical relationship between Palestine and Africa and Africa’s rejection of Zionism using the People’s Revolutionary Republic of Guinea as an example by clarifying “The cause being defended today by the Arab countries is inseparable from that which is being defended by the people of Guinea, Africa, and other continents. . . . Historically, Guinea cannot forget that during the last world war imperialism favored the installation of the future state of Israel in Guinea province, namely the Fouta Djallon highlands in central Guinea. This in fact meant that the Guinean people living in the Fouta Djallon region would have been expelled from their own land in the interest of Israel.

Behind Israel were the imperialist powers, who could impose the argument of force on the Guinean people. Had this plan been realized, Guinea’s independence would have had no significance because our people would have freed themselves from French colonization only to be subjected to that of Israel. Had this happened, the Guineans would today have the right to appeal for the solidarity of all people who love justice and freedom to support them in their liberation struggle against imperialism and Israel.”[9]

From the beginning of their colonizing mission, the racist settler-occupiers of Palestine also developed political, economic, cultural and military cooperation with their racist European settler relatives in Azania/South Africa as both practice apartheid and settler-colonialism on the Palestinian and Azanian/South African peoples, respectively. “The Jerusalem Post has noted that Israel ‘is the first country with which South Africa has set up a joint ministerial committee to promote economic cooperation. Political cooperation has been translated into more direct forms, both economic and military. The large Jewish population of South Africa, described by an Israeli newspapers as ‘one of the most vibrant Zionist-minded and supportive in the world, has made various significant contributions to Zionist settler-colonialism.”[10]

Other colonized countries in Africa, like Kenya and Uganda were targets of Zionist-imperialism from which the telescopic sights on the barrel of the Zionists’ guns were refocused to Palestine. The A-APRP (GC), representing genuine Pan-Africanists worldwide, therefore inherit and continue with the revolutionary solidarity with our comrades in Palestine and salute them and commemorate with them 74 years of Palestine Day (NAKBA) as an expression of our emerging revolutionary African Personality during this ideological and organizational African Liberation Day Offensive against Zionism and the occupation of Palestine.

People of Africa, arise!

Defeat imperialism, Neo-colonialism and settler domination.

Stand together and unite in the revolutionary struggle.

Forward to victory.

We shall conquer.[11]

African Liberation Day Commemorating 74 Years of Palestine (NAKBA) Day:

In Principled Solidarity with the Palestinian Revolution

This year marks the 74th year of the commemoration of the NAKBA in Palestine. ALL genuine Pan-Africanists are in solidarity with the Palestinian Revolution and have a hatred for Zionism. History has recorded that Judaism was and is used as the smoke-screen for the settler-colonial aspirations of international Zionism and its European racist-bourgeois nationalism. There can be no confusion and what must be clear is a Zionist cannot be a Jew nor can a Jew be a Zionist. That is impossible because the principles of Judaism and Zionism are incompatible! The first Jews were African, born in Ethiopia, therefore being a Jew cannot represent a nationality, only a believer in the religion of Judaism. Even Zionism validates this historical truth through its May 25, 1991, military covert operation, Operation Solomon, where the occupiers of Palestine, who are of European origin, air-lifted 14,325 Ethiopian Jews to Palestine in 36 hours.[12] Ethiopians, in Palestine, are now on the ground fighting Zionism and the occupiers of Palestine as they are nationally oppressed and economically exploited. Zionism is not a religion, Zionism is a backwards and reactionary bourgeois ideology; Zionism promotes and practices genocidal imperialism and Zionism promotes and practices racism.

Just as European capitalism and imperialism used Christianity and the church as an unethical and immoral racist smoke-screen to colonize the Western Hemisphere and then kidnap, traffic and enslave African people; so did European capitalism and imperialism use Judaism and the synagogue, to confuse religion with imperialism, to justify the expulsion of the Palestinian people from their land in the name “God” and then deny their right to return. The truth must be told, once again, on the question of Palestine.

The genocidal occupation of Palestine, by European Zionist-imperialism, was declared May 14, 1948, recognized by U.S. Imperialism, an ally of Zionism, that same day.  The occupation of Palestine was unethically and immorally sanctioned into international law by European imperialism, through one of its appendages, the United Nations (UN), May 11, 1949, as another “sovereign and independent” European settler-colonial state. Therefore, the liberation of Palestine, like all settler-colonial states, is a pre-condition for the possibility of international justice and world peace. Palestine is another victim of European settler-colonialism, which is an instrument of European imperialism. Where Judaism is an ancient religion, Zionism found its grounding at the First Zionist Congress, in Basle Switzerland in August 29-31, 1897.

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) knows the history of the Zionist movement and the development of Zionism very well and is immovable on our understanding of historical truth that Zionism is imperialism, Zionism is settler-colonialism and Zionism is racism. We inherit, continue and advance the analysis and hatred of Zionism by Pan-Africanist Kwame Ture as he taught, “Our eyes are now open: we have begun to see this trickery of Zionism; we have begun to see the evil of Zionism, and we will fight to wipe it out wherever it exists, in the Middle East or in the ghetto of the United States.”[13]

Zionism commits genocide on the Palestinian people and it is the occupiers of Palestine that play the role of a military imperialist outpost in the “Middle East” for European imperialism, particularly U.S. imperialism.  Zionism’s claim to Palestine is but a smoke screen for the colonization of any land from which they could reap the benefits of being a lap-dog of imperialism. Today, the A-APRP (GC) remains steadfast in its principled solidarity with the Palestinian revolutionary struggle against the occupation of Palestine and with it the right of each and every Palestinian to return to their Homeland, Palestine.

To this very day, as reported by Charlotte Kates of the Samidoun Palestinian Prisoner Network during their webinar, Resisting Anti-Palestinian Repression—Fighting for Liberation, March 6, 2022, “There is a concerted effort to attack the Palestinian movement for the liberation of Palestine and the Palestinian solidarity movement; of course this is nothing new. We have seen for the last 73 years the ongoing NAKBA in Palestine. We have seen for over 100 years the ongoing imperialist attack upon and colonization of Palestine.

Right now there are over 4,650 political prisoners behind bars in Zionist jails and this is in addition to prisoners of the Palestinian struggle who are also held behind bars in the jails of reactionary Arab regimes or in imperialist states, like the United States or in France. . . .”[14]

It is imperative that Africa and African people worldwide be in the forefront of the ideological and organizational Pan-African and international offensive in solidarity with the revolutionary struggle for the national liberation of Palestine from Zionist-imperialist settler-colonialism within the inseparable context and relationship to our struggle for Pan-Africanism—One Unified Socialist Africa and the  international revolutionary fight for scientific socialism.

THERE IS A TIME WHEN SILENCE IS BETRAYAL AND

 THAT TIME HAS PASSED ON THE QUESTION OF PALESTINE!

PALESTINE WILL BE FREE FROM THE RIVER TO THE SEA!

Honoring Kwame Nkrumah, Sekou Toure & Kwame Ture

AFRICAN LIBERATION DAY/PALESTINE (NAKBA) DAY 2022

PAYS TRIBUTE TO

KWAME NKRUMAH, SEKOU TOURE & KWAME TURE

The A-APRP (GC) is fortunate to have as our Ideological forebears, the immortal Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, Ahmed Sekou Toure, and Kwame Ture. These brothers, the Pan-African Champions that they are, struggled exclusively for the Pan-African objectives. They are the ideological foundation on which the A-APRP (GC) is built.

On the question of Pan-Africanism, the total liberation and unification of the African continent, including all her islands is/must be the primary objective of all Pan-Africanist throughout the world, under an all-African socialist government. It is an objective that once it is achieved will significantly and profoundly re-image the people of Africa for the better. Our comrades Kwame Ture, Sekou Toure, and Kwame Nkrumah, understood that this Pan-African objective could only be achieved through the struggle or more precisely through the African Revolution.

They knew our enemies including the forces of capitalism, imperialism, zionism, and its many lapdogs and Neo-colonial assets would wage a life and death struggle to keep the labor and resources they have stolen from Africa and her people. They contemplate the necessity of solidarity and allied struggles with the other oppressed people of the world.

This Iconoclast ideological leadership of the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC): Kwame Ture, Sekou Toure, and Kwame Nkrumah, profound strugglers for true Pan-Africanism were conscious of the contradictions that we face as a people. They were especially conscious of the issues that have kept our sisters out of this iconoclast. We, using Nkrumah’s, Sekou’s, and Kwame’s forward-looking ideas, are struggling to immediately rectify these contradictions. Ture, Toure, and Nkrumah all have in common the understanding that the ultimate solution to all the problems that we face as a people is Pan-Africanism under scientific socialism, struggling hand in hand with our sisters.

Any other proposed goals of our struggle currently except Pan-Africanism under scientific socialism are just a criminal waste of our and our people’s time. These comrades taught us there should never, ever be any compromise where principles are involved; and, the importance of serving, suffering, and sacrificing for the liberation of Africa and the suffering humanity.

Honor & Commemorate, Study & Practice the Revolutionary Theory & Practice of Nkrumahism-Toureism!

Honor, Commemorate, and Emulate Malcolm X

Unleashing an Offensive of 64 Years of African Liberation Day & Palestine (Nakba) Day:

Intensifying the Revolutionary Struggle Against Capitalism & Imperialism, Zionism & Neo-Colonialism; Forward to Pan-Africanism – One Unified Socialist Africa

May 19, 1925 – February 21, 1965

Honor, Commemorate, and Emulate Malcolm X

Malcolm Little was born May 19, 1925, to a mother and father who were both militant organizers of the Universal Improvement Association—African Communities League (UNIA-ACL). Malcolm recalled attending meetings with his father where he, as a child, originally was introduced to the concept “Black” nationalism, African identity and the African Diaspora’s relationship to Africa and to the importance of organization.

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC) honors Malcolm X because he validates, in both theory and practice, the role of ideology in creating the new man and woman in our revolutionary struggle. American racist-capitalism took the son of a family of UNIA-ACL members, who were teaching their children by example, to educate and organize our People about Africa at the mass level and transformed Malcolm Little, a brilliant student, into a street guy, Detroit Red, who sold dope, engaged in robberies and burglaries, pimped women and in general was a hustler and parasite on the African masses and other working People. 

The ethical and moral transformation of Malcolm Little to Detroit Red, is like so many of African youth today worldwide. Like so many of African youth today; they too are incarcerated and systematically transformed into human beings that reflect the most vicious and vile values and ethics of racist-capitalism, imperialism and neo-colonialism in every corner of the globe. Because capitalism is a system of corruption, it teaches our youth that corruption is a correct and just way of life. African youth therefore becomes a commodity, a slave in and for the Mass Incarceration, Corporate, Contract, Military, and Prison Repression Complex where those who make the laws buy stock in companies that service local jails, state and federal prisons and international internment camps, who house and own and exploit our youth, and who profit off of there being incarcerated. Malcolm X is to be emulated because African youth must be transformed ideologically into dedicated and committed African revolutionaries as was Malcolm X.

It was in prison that Detroit Red was transformed more closely ideologically to what he was introduced to as a child through the Nation of Islam (NOI) under the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. The Nation of Islam was a catalyst in re-awakening Malcolm’s earlier introduction to “Black nationalism” that would lead to the birth of Malcolm X. Malcolm X was born in the Nation of Islam. It was Malcolm’s re-awakening and search for truth and for the emancipation of African people worldwide that on March 8, 1964 he transitioned out of the Nation of Islam and would later in his short life inspire him, while in Ghana, to found the Organization of Afro-American Unity (OAAU) and solidify ideological and organizational ties in Africa and around the world.

At the founding rally of the OAAU, Malcolm X explained, “So the purpose of the Organization Afro-American Unity is to unite everyone in the Western Hemisphere of African descent into one united force. And then, once we are united among ourselves in the Western Hemisphere, we will unite with our brothers on the motherland, on the continent of Africa.”[1]

We honor, commemorate and advocate that our youth emulate Malcolm X because Malcolm X came to the realization of the following truths: 

  • All people of African descent are Africans and must be organized as such
  • African women must be emancipated and play a critical role in Revolution
  • Capitalism and imperialism must be destroyed if African people were to be free
  • Revolution was the only path to freedom, reforming capitalism was not an option for our freedom
  • Africans must belong in all-African organizations; other nationalities can support, but they cannot join
  • Africans must be in solidarity with Palestine and opposed to zionism,
  • There is harmony between Religion and Revolution
  • Africans in the Diaspora must unite with Africans in Africa and fight for Pan-Africanism
  • The ideological family takes primacy in regard to the biological family

Because of Malcolm X developed politically and ideologically into an uncompromising Pan-Africanist building relation with Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, Ahmed Sekou Toure, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Fidel Castro and other progressive and revolutionary forces he was assassinated, February 21, 1965, by the U.S government, in its COINTEL-PRO Black Nationalist Program. COINTEL-PRO was a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) program that was used to halt his progress and accomplishments in his efforts to organize for Pan-Africanism. His murder was during a time that American imperialism was at war with world humanity and killing off key leadership worldwide. Malcolm X knew when his time was near, but never wavered in his commitment to suffer, serve and sacrifice for the masses of our People until death and as a result of his revolutionary contributions to the struggle for Pan-Africanism, we commemorate and honor him.

Honor, Commemorate, and Emulate Ho Chi Minh (“Uncle Ho”)

Unleashing an Offensive of 64 Years of African Liberation Day & Palestine (Nakba) Day:

Intensifying the Revolutionary Struggle Against Capitalism & Imperialism, Zionism & Neo-Colonialism; Forward to Pan-Africanism – One Unified Socialist Africa 

May 19, 1890 – September 02, 1969

Honor, Commemorate, and Emulate Ho Chi Minh (“Uncle Ho”)

“It is well known that the Black race is the most oppressed and most exploited of the human family. It is well known that the spread of capitalism and the discovery of the New World had as an immediate result the rebirth of slavery which was, for centuries, a scourge for the Negroes and a bitter disgrace for mankind.”[1] Ho Chi Minh

 The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (GC)’s organized African Liberation Day/Palestine (NAKBA) Day honors and commemorates the revolutionary life of his Excellency Ho Chi Minh, who is also affectionately known as “Uncle Ho”. The A-APRP (GC) is fighting to build a revolutionary mass Pan-Africanist socialist party for Pan-Africanism and we therefore honor all revolutionaries who have fought capitalism, imperialism, zionism, neo-colonialism and the oppression and exploitation of women. Ho Chi Minh was a Marxist-Leninist and socialist and one of those People whose revolutionary contributions to humanity are etched in the chronicles of world history.

Ho Chi Minh was a staunch ally and supporter of the African Revolution, Pan-Africanism and that of all oppressed nations worldwide. “He at one time shared the misery of the proletariat of Africa and America.”[2]  Ho Chi Minh “was deeply interested in the lives of Black people and their struggles for equality. He was one of the first Asian communist leaders to explore the issues facing the Black communities and promote their freedom. . . . It was in Harlem that Ho attended Black activist meetings held by the Universal Negro Improvement Trust, an organization that had been established by the Jamaican Black nationalist Marcus Garvey in 1914.”[3]  Consequently, Ho Chi Minh saw the inter-relationship between the development of capitalism and imperialism, the kidnapping, trafficking and enslavement of African people, the colonization and neo-colonization of Africa and the liberation of African people and that of the liberation of Vietnam. Within a year of the establishment of the People’s Revolutionary Republic of Guinea, under the leadership of the Democratic Party of Guinea (PDG) and President Ahmed Sekou Toure; President Toure, in 1960, visited Vietnam and President Ho Chi Minh and a joint agreement of cooperation and solidarity was signed. The defeat of French, Japanese and U.S. imperialism, by the heroic Vietnamese People, is recorded as one of the greatest contributions to oppressed humanity that the world has ever seen and experienced.

Nguyen Sinh Cung (Ho Chi Minh) was born May 19, 1890 into the family of a nationalist anti-French colonialism father and mother in Nghe Tinh Vietnam, a colony of French imperialism. The village of “Nghe Tinh also had come for many centuries all but a few of the country’s revolutionaries [and was also] the home of insurrections, a school for revolutionaries.”[4] Ho Chi Minh followed the example of his father and grew politically into a Vietnamese nationalist and socialist patriot fighting for the independence of a socialist Vietnam. As a servant of the Vietnamese masses Ho Chi Minh was a founding member of the Indochina Communist Party (1930), the Viet Minh (1941) and was, having won independence, President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (North Vietnam) from 1945 to 1969.

It was as a seaman Ho Chi Minh traveled to Africa, the U.S. and England and lived in France from 1915-1917 where he accepted the principles of scientific socialism and Marxism-Leninism. At the young age of 28, Ho Chi Minh presented to international imperialism, led by “the United Kingdom, France, United States and Italy”, at the Versailles Peace Conference, in 1919, his demand that France grant independence to Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh was inspired by the defeat of the czar and imperialism in Russia and joined the French Communist Party in 1920. He traveled to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) in 1923. While in the USSR he attended and participated in the Fifth Congress of the Communist International. Because of Ho Chi Minh’s Vietnamese nationalism, he was critical of the French Communist Party for its lack of a serious commitment to national liberation struggles for independence. It was his drive to fight for the liberation of Vietnam that motivated his return to and begin to organize in his Homeland.

In 1924, in Canton (Guangzhou) China, Ho Chi Minh recruited other nationalist organizers and militants, exiled from Vietnam and founded the Vietnam Thanh Nien Cach Menh Dong Chi Hoi (Vietnam Revolutionary Youth Association or Thanh Nien. Canton, China became his base and a home of Indochinese nationalism. He and other communist were expelled from China in April, 1927 and he returned to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). From there, in 1928, he went to Brussels and Paris and was the Communist International representative for communist parties in Southeast Asia.

Ho Chi Minh and the cadre of Thanh Nien met in Hong Kong in May 1929 and founded the Indochinese Communist Party (PCI). The founding of the Party in Vietnam was February 3, 1930 as the Vietnamese Communist Party, which later was renamed the Indochinese Communist Party.

Inside of Vietnam an insurrectionary movement unfolded with brutal repression from French imperialism. Ho Chi Minh was sentenced to death in abstention and sought refuge in the USSR. In 1938 Ho Chi Minh returned to China hosted by Mao Tse Tung. With the defeat of France by Germany, Ho Chi Minh, Vo Nguyen Giap and Pham Van Dong re-entered Vietnam in January, 1941 and organized the Viet Nam Doc Lap Dong Minh (League for the Independence of Vietnam or Viet Minh. It was around this same time that Nguyen Sinh Cung began to use the name Ho Chi Minh, “He Who Enlightens”. Seeking assistance from China, Ho Chi Minh, went to China and was arrested by the reactionary government of Chiang Kai-shek. Uncle Ho spent 18 months in prison because of political work and ideological convictions.

In 1945, Japan completely overran Indochina and executed all French colonial officials, which was a victory for Vietnam. French imperialism was in peril. Six months later, committing a crime against humanity, U.S. imperialism dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, August 6 and 9, 1945. Both of Vietnam’s colonial enemies were defeated and in retreat. Vietnamese guerilla warfare against the Japanese continued in South China and guerilla units began their descent in to Hanoi. September 2, 1945 and Vietnam’s independence was proclaimed.

With the defeat of German fascism in France, Charles De Gaulle came to power and refused to recognize the independence of Vietnam from French imperialism. The Vietnamese response was a war of liberation, the First Indochina War December 19, 1946 through August 1, 1954.The Vietnamese Revolution defeated French imperialism on the battlefield and by 1954 most of the countryside was under Viet Minh control and the larger cities were following. French imperialism was crushed at the Dien Bien Phu March 13 through May 7, 1954 and the independence of Vietnam was won. The defeat of French imperialism in Vietnam was not only a victory over French imperialism in Vietnam, but also in Africa and all of France’s colonized countries and territories worldwide.

Strategically, to obtain the independence of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh agreed with the partition of Vietnam at the Geneva Accords with the understanding that an election was to be held and Vietnam unified. U.S. imperialism and neo-colonialism in South Vietnam sabotaged the elections. In 1959, armed action in South Vietnam to reunify Vietnam began by the Vietcong. In July, 1959, Ho Chi Minh’s Lao Dong (Worker’s Party) concluded that the development of socialism in North Vietnam was organically linked with unification of South Vietnam. The revolutionary forces in North and South Vietnam were united on the question of unification.

U.S. imperialism was arrogant and had no idea what it would face by attempting to replace French imperialism in Vietnam. U.S. imperialism had not tasted and swallowed the bitter pill that French imperialism tasted and ingested at Dien Bien Phu. U.S. imperialism would have its victories that would bolster its belief that it was undefeatable.

February 24, 1966 President Kwame Nkrumah was a victim of the aggression of U.S. imperialism while expressing the African Personality in solidarity with the Vietnamese Revolution. The Convention People’s Party and President Nkrumah where overthrown by a coup de ’tat orchestrated by U.S. imperialism, through the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). “When the action took place, I was on my way to Hanoi, at the invitation of President Ho Chi Minh, with proposals for ending the war in Vietnam.”[5]  The war in Vietnam continued and the heroic Vietnamese people intensified their revolutionary war against U.S. imperialism. Victory of the Vietnamese Revolution was near!

It was near the end of the U.S. imperialism’s military aggression against Vietnam when Uncle Ho explained U.S. imperialism’s inevitable defeat,

“Johnson and his clique should realize this: they may bring in a half million, a million, or even more troops to step up their war of aggression in South Viet Nam. They may use thousands of aircraft for intensified attacks against North Vietnam. But never will they be able to break the iron will of the heroic Vietnamese people, their determination to fight against American aggression, for national salvation. The more truculent they grow, the more serious their crimes. The war may last five, ten, twenty or more years: Hanoi, Haiphong and other cities and enterprises may be destroyed; but the Vietnamese people will not be intimidated! Nothing is more precious than independence and freedom. Once victory is won, our people will rebuild their country and make it even more prosperous and beautiful.”[6] The Tet Offensive would be U.S. imperialism’s Dien Bien Phu, which witnessed the U.S. put its tail between its legs and run for its life.

In 1967 Kwame Ture was invited to participate in the Conference of the Organization of Latin American Solidarity (OLAS) convened in Havana, Cuba. U.S. imperialism had reported that Kwame’s passport would be seized upon his return to the U.S. because of his denunciation of U.S. capitalism and imperialism. Kwame made the decision to travel internationally before his return to the U.S. and by invitation visited Vietnam.

“I was overwhelmed, couldn’t really believe it that Ho Chi Minh was inviting me to lunch. . . . That’s when he told me the he’d been in Harlem during the time of the young Garvey. That he had thought Garvey to be a great man. That’ he’d heard Garvey speak and had even once made a modest financial contribution to the Garvey movement.

So we went on to discuss other matters, then he suddenly leaned closer and asked, ‘When are you African-Americans going to repatriate to Africa?’ I froze completely. Never forgot it. . . . Ho Chi Minh was a great man. He clarified many things for me. He had a real appreciation of our struggle in America”[7]

The Vietnamese Revolution set a sterling example of the power of the organized Masses when politically educated and organized. The Vietnamese people crushed U.S. imperialism. The U.S. was run out of Vietnam during the Tet Offensive, January 31 through September 23, 1968, which laid the basis for the total and complete withdrawal of U.S. imperialism from Vietnam March 29, 1973.  Vietnam was reunified. Uncle Ho had transitioned to the revolutionary ancestors September 2, 1969. He never saw a liberated and unified Vietnam, but his revolutionary legacy lives for eternity!

We honor and commemorate Uncle Ho for his sterling revolutionary example and unwavering commitment to the defeat of imperialism, neo-colonialism, the emancipation of women and the development of scientific socialism and for his solidarity with revolutionary movements and Peoples, particularly for Africa and the African Diaspora, but worldwide.

LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTIONARY LEGACY OF HIS EXCELLENCY HO CHI MIN!

VICTORY TO THE REVOLUTIONARY PAN-AFRICAN AND

INTERNATIONAL STRUGGLE FOR SCIENTIFIC SOCIALISM!
