An InPDUM Chicago update for March 2014

 

 

InPDUM Chicago

The frost is now thawing; its time to hit the pavement to continue building the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement in Chicago!

Over the winter, we’ve been connecting to the community thru ‘Talk of the Town’ open mic events, featuring artists, poets, comedians and other entertainers, as well as having open discussions on the liberation of African people.

Despite the cold here in the Windy City, we’ve been battling for democracy for the masses of African people here. Self-determination is the highest form of democracy!

In January, we braved the below zero temperatures to attend a Martin Luther King march led by Marissa Brown and the Washington Park Freedom School. We attended to remind Chicago that the U.S. government murdered Dr. King, and to uphold the African red, black and green flag, as a symbol for a united Africa and African people.

At the Washington Park Freedom School, Comrade Zenobia Spencer teaches youth about hip-hop history and how it can be used as a tool to organize, unify and uplift the African nation. Zenobia Spencer will also be performing live hip-hop here in Chicago on March 31, 2014 at Subterranean.

On February 21, our African Martyr’s Day event at the House of Culture discussed African freedom fighters local and international. It is important to celebrate our African martyrs to remove the fear of death in our struggle for freedom and self-determination.

The dehumanizing conditions and policies imposed on Africans in public housing units will be fought this year by the educated participation of the residents fighting in their own interests. The Marshall Fields Gardens will become liberated territory because the masses of Africans here will make it so.

Recently, a security staff-person at the Marshall Field Garden’s housing pulled a gun on a 13-year-old African. InPDUM Chicago will organize political action.

On Saturday, April 12, 2014, President Waleeah Brooks and a member of the IEC will come to town for the African Community Convention Pre Convention Tour!

During this Tour, we will discuss issues on African students, prisoners, housing and the international SGL African community. We will also build the organization necessary to surge victories on these issues, and forward the struggle for freedom and self-determination of the African working class worldwide.

The 2014 International InPDUM Convention will be on September 20-22 in Newark, New Jersey.

This July, we will travel to St. Petersburg, Florida to train and study to become real revolutionaries, increase our discipline, skills and understanding of African Internationalism during the month-long Cadre-building program of the African People’s Socialist Party.

If you are interested in attending, please let us know so that we can arrange travel plans accordingly.

The struggle for freedom and independence needs your participation.

OAKLAND ON THA MOVE!!

MovieNight_Lumumba_halfThe Oakland Uhuru Movement, has started back, with the installation on Uhuru House Movie Nights, Starting this Friday at 7pm.   Our first movie to be shown will be “LUMUMBA”.  This is but one of several economic development institutions, to come out of Oakland,CA.

Also starting back, is the Community Garden, which will be one of several African community programs, which will be the example of an independent African economy, with the ability to feed ourselves, especially as we see the crisis of this almost dead, white power system, increase by the order of magnitude.  We are excited to open up the “Historic” Uhuru house, that has seen many political actions and campaigns over a 30 year period.  We are more excited that we will bring more Africans into a process, to finally unify and liberate ourselves from this foul, rotten system, that has colonized out people for 500 years too long.

Legalization of Marijuana , A Political Question for the African Community

inpdum pic

There has been a push to legalize recreational marijuana. In fact in Colorado, the recreational marijuana question is, what are the implications on the African community?   If marijuana is legalized then all Africans convicted for possession and or distributing the plant should be overturned.   All evictions due to marijuana possession should be overturned and reparations must be paid to those who were detained and loss wages and welfare benefits due to marijuana possession.   Yet the ruling class is not stating that convictions will be overturned or reparations will be paid. Africans are 4 times likely to be charged and convicted based on the possession of marijuana than white people, yet there is no position stating that these convictions will be overturned.

The International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM) holds up point 49 of its Revolutionary Democratic Program (RNDP).

We demand an end to the public policy of police containment and military occupation of African communities and countries worldwide which are implemented under the guise of war on terror, drugs, gangs, etc.   We demand their replacement with a public policy of economic development through massive capital infusion that would be used to uplift the entire community by supporting existing African businesses, establishing new African businesses, including cooperatives and the overall industrialization of Africa and African communities which promotes the needs and interests of our oppressed and exploited communities, thereby contributing to the general self-reliance of the African community.

To be clear the point is not whether or not marijuana should be legal. The point is that there is a crisis of imperialism.   The ruling class is like a wounded lion licking its wounds and a way to salvage resources is to legalize marijuana.   That way they can capitalize off of the legal sale of marijuana and capitalize off of the 1000s of Africans in jail for marijuana charges!

One day weed is a “gateway” drug now there are medicinal purposes so it is ok to sell and distribute it? Oh wait it is only ok for the government to regulate the sales, distribution and taxes tied to the legalization of marijuana. So how does a “gateway” drug all of a sudden become legalized for recreational use? It just goes to show that the ruling class tailors data and facts about everything to fit their best interest.

We demand the reparations now and the end of the military occupation in all African Communities!

Africans Have the Right to Resist!

Join the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM), in organized resistance against the ruling class and its ongoing war on the African community.   We are an organization of organizers, under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP). We believe in self determination of African people and have a Revolutionary Democratic Program (RNDP) to demand the liberation of African people during our lifetime.   Africans have the right to resist!   Join the resistance! Join InPDUM!
