What power has given the U.S. gangster state the right to unilaterally attack any nation on this planet?

The Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) answered that question in a statement we released Tuesday.

That some who call themselves radicals can remain silent about the consequences of a possible U.S. military intervention into Syria is a reflection of the bankruptcy of the imperial left that continues to collaborate with the Western and U.S. white supremacist, colonial/capitalist patriarchy.

The children of Yemen have been starving and the U.S.-supported apartheid state of Israel murdered two dozen Palestinians. Yet, we heard nothing in response from the ruling class and its collaborators in the corporate media.

We are now supposed to believe the racist Trump administration is so committed to Syrian Arab life that it feels morally compelled to intervene. Do you see the obscenity? Some Westerners apparently don’t, hence the race to war.

We would laugh, but this is a matter of life and death. And we’re on the side of justice. That’s why we don’t accept the imperialist nonsense coming out corporate-media outlets.

In fact, warmongering Democrats are on a quest to start World War III, using former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s book tour to rationalize “humanitarian intervention.” Thankfully, a few anti-imperialists who organize in the center of the empire made sure she would not get to spread that propaganda in peace. Check out the five times Albright was disrupted during her New York City event on Tuesday. It warms our hearts that a few brave humans continue to speak out under the weight of imperial propaganda.

The sentiment seems to be spreading beyond political circles. More than 3,000 Google employees demanded the technology company cease its drone project for the Pentagon.

Now for once, it would be fantastic if the United States acted with decency. But based on its history, we don't expect that to happen without exceptional public pressure. That’s why we ask you to show up this weekend in your city for a Spring Action to demand the United States exit Syria and other oppressed nations, and end its slaughter of innocents abroad as well as right here in the belly of the empire: springaction2018.org

Although Spring Actions are occurring across the United States, BAP National Organizer Ajamu Baraka can only be in one place at one time. Catch him at the New York City demonstration, which will include a march to Trump Tower.

We say not one drop of working-class blood for the capitalist oligarchy!

Upcoming Events

BAP member organization Pan-African Community Action and other organizations will host a screening of the film, “Black Cop,” and lead a discussion afterward. RSVP for this April 23 Washington, D.C. event.

Did you know physicist Albert Einstein was tracked by the FBI because of his political views? If you’re in New York City, you can hear Ajamu speak about the foreward he wrote about McCarthyism—past and current—for the new book, “The Einstein File: The FBI’s Secret War Against the World’s Most Famous Scientist”. Get details and RSVP for the April 19 event.

LeftRoots Cadres & Compas will report back on a recent delegation that went to Vietnam. Register for this April 19 event that takes place online.

Join us in taking a conscious step to unite the battlefronts of the Black working class into a national movement for Black liberation and radical transformation of the capitalist system—a system that oppresses and exploits multitudes throughout the world and threatens the sustainability of the Earth.

No compromise.

No retreat.
