Africans is Chicago come out for "The Ballot and the Bullet" 

CHICAGO—The Black is Back Coalition for Social Justice, Peace and Reparations (BIBC) held their annual national conference at Chicago State University in Chicago, Illinois on Saturday and Sunday, August 12-13, 2017.  The theme of the conference was “The Ballot and the Bullet: Elections, War and Peace in the Era of Trump.”

The conference was attended by African people from throughout the U.S. including Philadelphia, Texas, Washington D.C., Florida and Chicago itself.

The program was filled with important reports from the coalition working groups, resolutions for action and cutting edge analysis.

As the theme stated, the focus of the program was on raising up strategy for African people to engage in resistance for self-determination through the electoral process, while also recognizing that doing so cannot serve as a substitute for anti-colonial resistance through armed struggle.

White solidarity with black power growing in the Northeast! 

The African People’s Solidarity Committee (APSC) and Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM) are rapidly expanding in the NE region!

As the courageous resistance of African people worldwide tops the news every day, the fact that the American colonial system is the real crime against humanity, and the solution is African Revolution, has penetrated the consciousness of the white population.

This realization is due to the African revolution led by Chairman Omali and the African People’s Socialist Party working on many fronts,

APSC and USM are organizations based in the white community that work directly under the leadership of the APSP.

These organizations are tasked with the responsibility to expose the colonial reality Africans face and to organize white people to unite with the fact that the only positive way forward for us is paying reparations to the African community.

APSC understands that what marks a progressive stand for white people is not saving the environment, it is not if you are gay or a feminist.

The dividing line is what your stand is on the tremendous debt the white population owes the African people for 600 years of colonial violence and terror, stolen land, lives and resources that built the lifestyle of consumption that white America and Europeans take for granted.
