On Saturday, July 20 Omali Yeshitela, Chairman of the African People’s Socialist Party, will be speaking in Harlem, NYC at St Mary’s Church, located at 521 W. 126th St.
This event is part of a worldwide tour the Chairman is currently involved in, where he aims to unite Afran workers and peasants in revolutionary resistance under one organization – to liberate our oppressed nation.
The primary focus of this particular event will be the intensifying counterinsurgent war the U.S. is current wging against the Black Power movement.
The surveillance that the U.S. government has recently been exposed for conducting on a worldwide scale ain’t nothin new for Africans, Mexicans and other oppressed peoples colonized within U.S. borders. Since the U.S. government’s military attack on the Black Power Revolution of the 1960’s the Black community has been under constant surveillance and military occupation.
Although the thae has attempted to justify this occupation and surveillance as a war on drugs, gangs and crime, the real objective has always been to prevent Africans from getting organized and rebuilding the revolutionary process.
Stop and frisk, police murder and mass imprisonment of Africans, the torture of political prisoners like Lynn Stewart and Sundiata Acoli, the most recent threats on Assata Shakur’s life and limb are all part of the intensifying war being waged on African people by the U.S. government.
It is a war to protect and defend the ability of the U.S. government to steal the resources of oppressed peopes around the world. It is a war to ensure that Africans dont join in anti-imperialist resistance that the rest of the world’s oppressed peoples are currently engaged in.
We must not let the state win! We must build the resistance!
Come hear Chairman Omali Yeshitela’s current analysis on the situation as he points the way forward for the African liberation movement.
