This week, BAP has been on the move to defend the Global South.
National Organizer Ajamu Baraka has been at a historic conference in Venezuela with organizers from all over the world. In the photo below, you see him meeting with Manuel Zelaya, former president of Honduras and a friend of the Left.
Folks, Venezuela needs people living in the belly of the U.S. empire to demand the predatory United States end its interventions and bullying in Latin America and around the world.
Being in revolutionary spaces outside of the United States is vitally important for activists of color. The revolutionary centers left Europe and the United States years ago.
Our collective responsibility must not be forgotten: It is to the struggling peoples of the world and must not be influenced by the class collaborationist, pro-imperialist, arrogant faux-left.
But if you are in the United States, you must join BAP and other anti-war organizations that are planning mass actions against Trump’s military parade. We also hope demonstrations take place at U.S. embassies around the world. You can learn more about this parade by reading this interview with one of the organizers, Margaret Flowers.
And we need these mass organizing efforts because as this piece in Foreign Policy notes, the U.S. empire is in a perpetual state of war over money and power.
One of the places the United States has been invading and militarizing for the past decade is the African continent. Download BAP’s four-page fact sheet on the U.S. Africa Command, aka AFRICOM. Use it to educate your people.
Finally, BAP member Maurice Carney spoke at the 60th anniversary celebration of the All African People’s Conference in Washington, D.C. Check out the Q&A discussion that followed.
Struggle to win,
