InPDUM’s Resistance Rally: Black Community Control of Mural
On Sunday, July 24th, the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM) held a resistance rally to discuss controlling the narrative and not allowing white nationalism to define the image of African resistance. Chairman Omali Yeshitela of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) was the featured speaker.
Chairman Omali Yeshitela described the history of the events leading up to his tearing the racist mural off the wall in St. Pete’s City Hall back in 1966. Gazi Kodzo of APSP, and President of InPDUM in St. Petersburg, also spoke about the portrayal of police brutality and murder in the white media.
Following these speeches there was a ceremony where members of InPDUM and APSP leadership were given their African names. “African names tell a story,” said Chairman Omali Yeshitela.
The Uhuru Solidarity Movement unites with the Party’s analysis that the white imperialist media must not be allowed to control the narrative of Africans and other colonized people. White persons have a responsibility to become aware of and point out to others the lies and distortions white media spreads in opposition to African resistance. Uhuru!
