“Unity through Reparations” becomes life changing for white people in St. Pete 


The narrative was permanently transformed by the demand that reparations and economic development to the African community be the centerfold of city policy, along with black community control of police and an end to gentrification that pushes the African working class out of the city in the face of massive real estate speculation on the part of big money developers.


It was a brilliant strategy to have African People’s Solidarity Committee member and chair of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement Jesse Nevel run for mayor as a white man galvanizing other white people around reparations as the central demand.

"Door to door wins the war:" The Uhuru campaign field team 


When New York assemblyman Charles Barron endorsed Eritha Akilé Anai (Cainion) for city councilwoman and Jesse Nevel for mayor in the 2017 St. Petersburg, FL elections, it was historic. Assemblyman Barron gave powerful advice, based upon years of successful campaigning and stopping the vicious tide of gentrification in East New York: “Door to door wins the war!”

From March to victory: The Story of the St. Pete local elections 2017 


The African People’s Socialist Party’s campaign for Akilé Anai (formerly Eritha Cainion) for District 6 city council and Jesse Nevel for mayor of St. Petersburg, FL this year was a six-month decorum-shattering, cadre-building, history-making mobilization of the masses of the people.


Between our announcements to run in March and election day on August 29, our daily work included work on the streets among the masses of the people, disruption of status-quo debates, fisticuffs, laughs, exuberant demonstrations, battles with the bourgeois media, social media wars and recruitment of amazing new Comrades in the process of breaking up the status quo and forcing the interests of the African working class onto St. Petersburg’s electoral agenda.

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.
