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.

Safety pins won’t make America safe for African people  

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement salutes all of the white people who are motivated to action by the line drawn in the sand by the Trump election. We salute all the North Americans who are moved to take a visible stand on the side of solidarity with African, Indigenous and other oppressed peoples in face of the threats to them by Trump's white nationalist mandate.

The rising African Revolution, however, is calling on white people to take very specific actions to stand in solidarity with African people.  It does not include wearing a safety pin

Trump and Clinton: both representatives of white power 

Donald Trump was selected to become the next U.S. president on November 8th, 2016, an event that has emboldened white nationalist attacks on Muslims, Indigenous people, Mexicans and African people inside the U.S.

Trump’s call to “make America great again” is a call that addresses the basest interests of white people to return to blatant slavery and genocide on which this country was founded.

In a political climate of gloom and fear, many white people are protesting in cities throughout the U.S. But the reality is that it would be just as necessary for us to demonstrate if Hilary Clinton had been selected to be the president of the United States, as it is now with Trump as the president-elect.

African People’s Solidarity Committee and Uhuru Solidarity Movement hit the road for the “Days in Solidarity with African People”  

The Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM) toured the U.S. to hold the historic Days in Solidarity with African People events of October 2016! 

We completed a seven-city tour across the U.S. to build white solidarity with Black Power and organize members of the white community to unite with the growing demand for reparations to African people.

DSAP 2016 commemorated the 40th anniversary of the founding of the African People’s Solidarity Committee (APSC) in 1976, a groundbreaking move by the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) and its Chairman Omali Yeshitela. 

Reparations to African people is the cornerstone of APSC’s work.
