Jesse Nevel, St. Petersburg mayoral candidate, runs against big money elite with platform of "Unity through Reparations" 


Jesse Nevel announced his candidacy for Mayor of the City of St. Petersburg, Florida on March 8th, 2017.

The 27-year-old is best known for his work as the National Chair of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM), the organization of white people working under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP), organizing for reparations to the black community.

 

The African People's Socialist Party defined the role of white people in our struggle for African liberation  


The question of the relationship and role of white people in history and in the struggle for socialism and African liberation is one that has long plagued our movement. 


African people have a bloody history with the white population. White people have historically functioned as arms of the oppressive colonial state against us, motivated to do so by the reward of colonial booty, elevated social relevance and a putrid ideology arising from a vicious social system based on genocide, slavery and colonialism.

White people have created in the African world conflicting responses that run the gamut of hatred, awe, fear, servile obedience, permanent suspicion and unrelenting resistance. 

Answer the Call! Come to the “White Solidarity With Black Power” USM National Convention April 1st and 2nd! 


Register for the USM National Convention, “White Solidarity with Black Power” on April 1-2 in St. Petersburg, Florida.

We are living in times of crisis, struggle and resistance. This is a call for white people to get on the right side of history by joining in solidarity with Black Power and organizing for white reparations to African people.

20-year-old black woman runs for St. Petersburg, Florida City Council candidate on platform of reparations and black community control of the police 


On Monday, March 6, 2017, 20-year-old Eritha “Akilé” Cainion threw her hat into the race to become the next councilperson for District 6 in St. Petersburg. She made the announcement while standing in front of the recently shutdown St. Petersburg, Florida Walmart with her proud parents and a group of enthusiastic supporters.

 
“I am 20 years old and for all these 20 years I have lived in this city, specifically in this neighborhood. In all these 20 years, the St. Petersburg city government has done nothing but work against the black community. I have entered this election because the black community is and has been under assault by the leaders of this city,” declared Akilé.
