The African People's Socialist Party puts revolution back on the agenda with a magnificent Plenary!  

The African People's Socialist Party (APSP) held its 2017 Plenary on January 7 through 9, 2017 at its headquarters in St. Petersburg, FL. 

The theme for this year's Plenary was “Putting Revolution Back on the Agenda.”

The Plenary was a revolutionary experience in every sense of the word as over 100 comrades traveled from all around the country and as far away as the Caribbean (Bahamas) and Europe (Sweden). The three-day Plenary was filled with political education, dynamic reports of the Party’s work for 2016, a variety of cultural performances and even an African naming ceremony.

Chairman Omali’s 2017 Political Report: Putting Revolution Back on the Agenda! 

Since our last Plenary in January 2016 the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) has been engaged in a blistering pace of struggle and development to carry out our responsibility to provide leadership to the African workers and nation during this extraordinary era of imperialist crisis.

This is our third Plenary since the December 2013 Sixth Congress of our Party. Like the two previous plenaries it will examine the state of our work to carry out the mandates and resolutions established by the Sixth Congress and prepare us for the Party’s Seventh Congress scheduled for Oakland, California in 2018.

This Political Report to our Plenary will also define our work and existence at this moment, when incredible upheaval is occurring within the imperialist centers, proving again that imperialist stability depends on parasitic colonial domination of the world.
