We of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, an organization of white people working under the leadership of African People’s Socialist Party, support the ongoing anti-colonial struggle of African people in Haiti against U.S.-led imperialism. We recognize white people, whether in North America or Europe, benefit from the brutal exploitation of Africans in Haiti. Africans are uniting around the world through the African Socialist International, to take back Africa and her resources from white power to benefit all Africans wherever they have been dispersed. We have a responsibility to pay reparations for 500 years of stolen black labor.
We call on Europeans and North Amercans (white people) to get organized under the leadership of colonized people struggling for their self-determination and national liberation. On January 6-8, 2013, the African People’s Solidarity Committee will hold its annual conference in St. Petersburg, Florida, at the Uhuru House, the international headquarters of the African People’s Socialist Party.

January 1, 2013
Ours has been a long struggle. It started, 510 years ago in 1503 when the first kidnapped African captives set chained foot on what is now known as Haitian soil.
Back on Jan. 1, 1804, European/U.S. barbarity and savagery received its greatest blow in the Western Hemisphere. We continue to face their guns, greed, foreign germs and odious cruelties. But we also continue to celebrate our victories, humanity and determination never to be as shallow and violent as these enemies. Haitians have been stigmatized and forced to pay with their lives and freedom for that achievement ever since.
Every Jan. 1st marks Haiti’s freedom day…
…As flesh and blood, endowed by our creator with the right to life, we claim the natural right to just retribution, to self-defense, to equal application of international laws governing human and civil rights. For we are certain, if not in this lifetime, then in our children or great-grandchildren’s time, the day will come when the fiendish fake progressives like Paul Farmers of this world will answer for the Haitian lives they’ve helped to destroy down the centuries and generations. The day will come, as surely as tomorrow is already here, and Haitians all over the world, who have survived the US occupation’s bloody carnage since 2004, will continue demanding an end to the masking of the tyranny as a way of remembering our independence from European/ U.S. official servitude and its manifold injustices.
