Trump's inauguration and the exposing of white nationalism 


Donald John Trump was inaugurated as the president of U.S. on January 20, 2017. He became the 45th U.S. president to take office.

He began his inauguration speech by thanking the past U.S. presidents that were present at the ceremony, including Barack Obama, whom Trump claimed a fierce opposition to during his campaign.

This shows that Trump is aligned with imperialism and simply used backlash against the black president to consolidate the white working class.

African Liberation Day 2017 “The Road to Liberation: 45 Years of African Resistance” 


African Liberation Day 2017 will mark the 45th anniversary of the founding of our African People's Socialist Party (APSP) and the first African Liberation Day mobilization in the United States. During this period, our Party has stood as the vanguard revolutionary Party of Africans worldwide. For us, ALD has never been simply a celebration, but a means to push forward the struggle to free Africa and African people around the world. 

We boldly proclaim that, “since our inception in 1972, our Party has functioned as the primary custodian of the African Liberation struggle. We have summed up all the lessons and contradictions of our revolutionary Movement to reunite the African nation and liberate and unite Africa and African people worldwide under the leadership of the African working class.”

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.
