OVERTURNING THE RACIAL DIVIDE THROUGH SOLIDARITY WITH AFRICAN LIBERATION
NATIONAL CONVENTION OF THE UHURU SOLIDARITY MOVEMENT – JUNE 15-16, 2013 – ST. PETERSBURG, FL
The Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM) is an organization of white people and other allies of the African Liberation Movement, working under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party which leads the Uhuru Movement around the world.
USM is an activist, anti-imperialist organization, working in the white community to organize people just like ourselves. We unite with reparations to African people and participate in reparations in action work, opening up the resources that we have in our communities to support African Liberation.
The National Convention of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement is our biggest event of the year. It is a two day which will take place Saturday and Sunday, June 15 and 16, 2013 in St. Petersburg, Florida. The convention is the event for USM membership and supporters to come together to report on the progress of the organization through the past year and to determine its direction and elect its National Steering Committee for the next year.
Not only that, but USM is honored to have speakers from the African People’s Socialist Party providing political leadership, based on the theory of African Internationalism, which describes history from the point of view of African and oppressed peoples, and how we can be part of a future that is not based on the relationship of oppressor and oppressed.
The 2013 National Convention is honored to have the Chairman of the African People’s Socialist Party, Omali Yeshitela as our keynote speaker. He is in the midst of a worldwide tour, uniting and organizing African people, as one people, one billion strong, around the world. While imperialism is in crisis all around us, it is clear that we have a choice to not allow imperialism’s crisis be our crisis. For the majority of the people of the world, imperialism’s crisis means freedom, it means power over their land, their resources and their lives. This convention is an opportunity for each of us to learn more about we can contribute in a principled relationship of solidarity with the African Liberation movement.
