Organizing for Bread, Peace and Black Power in Occupied Azania (South Africa)
The Bread, Peace and Black Power campaign was launched by the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) - Occupied Azania (South Africa) in July 2021 to organize the African working class in the face of the recent uprising.
Since the start of this campaign, we’ve had outreach sessions and presentations, both online and offline, as a response to the so-called “lootings,” which we have correctly termed as an uprising.
We recognize the entire turmoil roiling inside this colony called South Africa is an indication of a deepening crisis for the entire global social system that depends on our colonial domination, exploitation and terror, to survive.
From the political fragmentation and weakening of the ruling party to the worsening conditions and obvious poverty in the colonized African community, the leader and founder of the Uhuru Movement, Chairman Omali Yeshitela, often says that we should not see the crisis of the rulers as our own.
This is the kind of confidence we want to reinforce in the minds and the collective consciousness of the African working class.
The African working class, masses of black people stuffed by South Africa into the townships and shanties, cannot be left defenseless if we are to ever know peace.
Our struggle is for Bread (African resources), Peace (freedom from colonial violence), and Black Power (Total African liberation and self-determination)!
