USM Webinar to benefit Black Power Blueprint – The CIA: The World’s Biggest Drug Dealer

This episode of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement Web Show will expose the history of the CIA’s role in trafficking cocaine into African communities in the United States; how Chairman Omali Yeshitela and the Uhuru Movement exposed this before it was later corroborated by San Jose Mercury News reporter Gary Webb; and how the US “War on Drugs” is a cover for a colonial war against the African population that locks up millions of black men and women in prison to fuel the parasitic capitalist economy.

Join us for this livestreamed event on Tuesday, March 12th at 7pm EST.

White people in solidarity with Black Power and African liberation can join the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, and join us for our National Convention “Make America Pay Reparations” this April 13th & 14th in St. Louis, MO.  Register at USM2019CONVENTION.EVENTBRITE.COM

Beyond Republicans and Democrats: Build White Solidarity with Black Power! A call to attend the USM National Convention April 13-14, 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri

 

White people, this is a call to stand in principled solidarity with the Black Liberation Movement for a world with no oppression, no borders and no war!  

Come to the Uhuru Solidarity Movement’s National Convention on April 13-14, 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri.

As it becomes clearer by the day that Democrats and Republicans are the same on every issue that matters to the lives of Africans, Arabs, Mexicans, Indigenous and colonized peoples, THIS CONVENTION is our way to reject the two-faced imperialist system altogether and embrace the path toward a better world!   

At a time when imperialist-instigated abrupt climate change is threatening to extinguish all living beings without a solution in sight from the white scientists who caused the problem in the first place, THIS CONVENTION is our way to fight back for the future of the planet earth!

As millions of young white people are rejecting capitalism and looking for an alternative system that puts the interests of human beings before the profit of the white ruling class, THIS CONVENTION is our way to become real socialists under the leadership of the anti-colonial black workers-led revolution!   

When injustice faced by African people is deeper than ever  and the “racial wealth gap” is wider than ever before — with the wealth of the median African household at $1,700 compared to $116,800 for the median white household — THIS CONVENTION is our way as white people to unite with African people in their struggle to reclaim the value of their stolen resources, labor and lives that have benefited our economy at their expense for six hundred years!

As genocide rages at the Mexican border where the Indigenous people are fighting to cross a colonial barrier separating them from their own land, THIS CONVENTION is our way to stand with the Mexican and Indigenous liberation movement and an end to ALL colonial borders!

As the US government foments chaos and a coup in Venezuela to overthrow the progressive Bolivarian government of Nicolas Maduro, THIS CONVENTION is our opportunity to take a true stance of revolutionary international solidarity with all oppressed peoples on the planet earth fighting for self-determination.

And in this era of Trump where “Make America Great Again” has become the badge of white nationalist pride, it is our time to distinguish ourselves from our white ruling class and the bloc of white nationalist unity by declaring, with pride, our commitment to “Make America Pay Reparations” and to build “White Solidarity with Black Power!”

This why we are calling on you to come to the Uhuru Solidarity Movement National Convention.

What is the Uhuru Solidarity Movement?

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement is the mass front of the African People’s Solidarity Committee, the constituent organization of the African People’s Socialist Party, which extends the struggle for black liberation into the white community through building a mass movement for white reparations to African people.

We are called upon to face the struggling peoples of the world with a principled and honest stand, one that recognizes our historically criminal behavior as the oppressor of humanity and makes a commitment to right the wrongs of the past and the present not just in words but in action.

This action must go beyond protest or getting out the vote.  It must go deeper than changing the racist ideas our white brains. It must go beyond our personal relationships or our willingness to appear at demonstrations with “Black Lives Matter” signs.

As the APSC Chairwoman Penny Hess wrote in Overturning the Culture of Violence, the stance of genuine solidarity goes right to the dialectical relationship between human bondage and wealth, genocide and land ownership, suffering and well-being, justice and atonement. It takes us to the deepest recesses of our souls to find out if we are prepared to carry out in practice what we express in words. It brings us to the question of reparations.”

We have a role to play, under the leadership of the African working class. Our job is to go back into our own white communities and win our friends, families, co-workers, neighbors and everyone else to come onto the forward side of history. Join the human family.

Be part of the struggle for a socialist future where nobody is oppressed.  Where every person will have healthcare, education, a place to live, and access to quality food and water. But it won’t happen without a fight! This is our call to arms!

If you’re one of the millions of white people out there who hates to live at the expense of other people, then this convention is for you.

If you want your life to be connected to the struggling masses of African, Indigenous, Arab, Venezuelan, Cuban, Palestinian, Iranian, Korean and oppressed peoples of the world, who are fighting for their resources back, struggling for the ability of the next generation of children to grow up without fear of bombs, rape, and murder.

You are one of the millions of white people who find it intolerable that under this system of parasitic capitalism, our “every dream and aspiration,” as Chairman Omali Yeshitela has said, “requires drone strikes in Pakistan…”  

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement is your organization.

The USM national convention is for you.

Chairman Omali Yeshitela, the founder of the Uhuru Movement, along with Penny Hess, the Chair of the African People’s Solidarity Committee who has organized white solidarity with Black Power for over 40 years, will be the main speakers.

Participate in exciting workshops and presentations on how to build the Uhuru Solidarity Movement in your area, a tour of St Louis-based Black Power institutions and programs, and presentations exposing the genocidal conditions of mass imprisonment faced by African people.

This event will take place in the brand new Uhuru House, a project of the Black Power Blueprint.

“All Diamonds Are Blood Diamonds” Uhuru Solidarity Movement National Tour, Feb/March 2019!

ALL DIAMONDS ARE BLOOD DIAMONDS: THERE IS NO DIAMOND NOT COVERED WITH THE BLOOD OF AFRICAN PEOPLE!

“All Diamonds Are Blood Diamonds” is the slogan raised by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement in response to  the white liberal campaign against “blood” or “conflict” diamonds during the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)-backed colonial war in Sierra Leone from 1991 to 2002.

“All Diamonds are Blood Diamonds” is the theme for the Uhuru Solidarity Movement’s national tour which will take place in February and March of 2019.

The fact is there is no such thing as a diamond from Africa that is not stolen from African people and tainted with African blood shed during the ongoing colonial war against them.

The white liberal struggle against blood diamonds is, in fact, a campaign that benefited a colonial mining giant, DeBeers Diamond cartel.

The Blood Diamonds campaign fought against any diamonds sold on the open market by “rebels” or others in African countries that were not connected to DeBeers Diamonds. The cartel demanded that all diamonds be certified through what is called the Kimberley Process, controlled by DeBeers and named after the Kimberley region where the mines are located.

DeBeers is the mining company founded in the 1880’s by Cecil John Rhodes, the brutal British colonizer whose goal was to take over Africa from the Cape (Cape Town, South Africa) to Cairo (Egypt) for the benefit of British imperialism and all its citizens—the bourgeoisie and workers alike.

British colonizer Rhodes was the architect of South African apartheid modeled on the “Jim Crow” colonial conditions for African people inside the U.S.

A believer in the “Anglo-Saxon master race,” Rhodes stole about one million miles of southern African land for the British and himself personally.

Rhodes was responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of African people and the enslavement of tens of thousands more in the diamond mines, generating massive wealth that created the parasitic capitalist economic foundation for what is now known as “South Africa.”

According to the U.K. Daily Telegraph article on December 22, 2015, Rhodes’ “establishment of a paramilitary private army, the British South Africa Company’s Police (BSACP) resulted in the systematic murder of approximately 60,000 people; his amendment of the Masters and Servants Act (1890) reintroduced conditions of torture for black laborers; his infamous racist “land grabs” set up a system in which the unlawful and illegitimate acquisition of land through armed force was routine.”

BLOOD DIAMOND CAMPAIGN BENEFITS THE DE BEERS CARTEL

Fast forward to 1991 when neocolonial president Charles Taylor of Liberia was brought to trial and convicted by a special court on April 26, 2012 on charges of murder, rape and pillage of the people of neighboring Sierra Leone.

Employed by the CIA “for years” according to a 2012 article in the Boston Globe, Taylor was also convicted  and sentenced to 80 years in prison for planning the 1999 attacks on Kono, Makeni and Freetown, Sierra Leone along with the Sierra Leone rebel group, the Revolutionary United Front (RUF).

The RUF, backed by Taylor and the CIA, waged a coup attempt in 1991 against the then Sierra Leone president, leading to the 11-year bloodshed that murdered 50,000 African people with millions of families forced to flee from their homes in the face of torture, rape and mutilations.

The RUF mutilations included the cutting off of hands of thousands of Africans, a vicious act mimicking the terrorism imposed on the Congo by the Belgian colonizer King Leopold in the early 20th century.

This West African colonial war was a bloody, violent fight over control of the valuable African land of Sierra Leone, where mining accounts for about 80 percent of the colonial economy (of which diamonds are nearly 50 percent) in a country where more than 60 percent of the population lives on less than $1.25 a day in the multi-billion dollar U.S. and European mining industry.

The RUF is said to have gained control of a couple of diamond mines and sold diamonds as mavericks on the open market, much to the dismay of long-time criminal De Beers cartel.

ALL WHITE PEOPLE SIT ON THE PEDESTAL OF SLAVERY AND GENOCIDE

Cecil Rhodes understood well that all white people, including all white workers, sit on the pedestal of the enslavement and colonization of African people as Chairman Omali Yeshitela has shown.

He understood that capitalism is parasitic, born and maintained at the expense of Africans and other colonial subjects.

Rhodes once stated: “I was in the east end of London (a working-class quarter) yesterday and attended a meeting of the unemployed. I listened to the wild speeches, which were just a cry for ‘bread! bread!’ and on my way home I pondered over the scene and I became more than ever convinced of the importance of imperialism…

“My cherished idea is a solution for the social problem, i.e., in order to save the 40,000,000 inhabitants of the United Kingdom from a bloody civil war, we colonial statesmen must acquire new lands to settle the surplus population, to provide new markets for the goods produced in the factories and mines.

“The Empire, as I have always said, is a bread and butter question. If you want to avoid civil war, you must become imperialists.”

The African People’s Solidarity Committee (APSC) is an organization of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) as part of its strategy for nothing short than the total liberation of Africa and African people and the return of its land and minerals as well as the value of its stolen labor.

The main work of APSC, under the leadership of the Party, is to win reparations to the African Revolution from white people inside Europe, the U.S. and around the world.

APSC’s mass organization, the Uhuru Solidarity Movement, continues to raise the slogan, “All diamonds are blood diamonds,” as a stand of white people’s reparations to African people.
