CHICAGO– On October 5, 2013 the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM) will hold a one day conference to address the question of violence within our community.  The conference will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church, 125 E. 26th Street, Chicago. Featured speakers for the conference will be world renown Revolutionary and activist, Omali Yeshitela, Chairman of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) and founder of the Uhuru Movement and Diop Olugbala, International President of InPDUM.

Africans within the City of Chicago have been pondering ways to combat this plague of Horizontal Violence (so-called black on black crime) which has taken hold of our communities and lifestyles. Just on September 19, 13 Africans, including a 3-year-old child were shot during one incident due to this colonialist induced violence.

But even with the horrible numbers we see in deaths contributed to horizontal violence, it would take thousands of years and more to even approach the tens of millions of Africans who have been murdered by white power slavery and colonialism. Read the rest of this entry

NYPD Commits Act of Colonial Terror in Times Square! INPDUM Joins Forces With Black is Back Coalition to Build Resistance!

On Tue, at 6:30PM at Time Square the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement joined with members and supporters of the Black is Back Coalition (BIBC) to hold a militant demonstration in response to the NYPD’s shooting into a crowd of onlookers in their attempt to gun down an African man.

InPDUM participated in this important action as an organization that is committed to the struggle for freedom and social justice for all oppressed peoples, especially Africans.  INPDUM stands in firm opposition to the NYPD’s most recent act of imperialist aggression against African and other oppressed peoples who are the targets of police repression in NYC.

 Above is a video that captures the struggle made by BIBC at Times Square.

 

bib9.173On late night Sat, Sept 14 police troops of the NYPD shot into a crowd of people, hitting 2 women.  The police claim they were trying to subdue Glenn Broadnax, an African man who they claimed possessed a weapon they could not identify.

Of course the first question that anyone would ask that would immediately discredit the police’s justification of such a glaring demonstration of rabid capitalist-colonialist violence is simply: if the weapon was “unidentifiable” than how do you know it was a weapon?  And what qualifies as a weapon?

On Tuesday, September 17 at 6:30PM at Times Square (43rd St between Broadway and Seventh Ave) the Black is Back Coalition (BIBC) will hold a demonstration in response to the NYPD’s shooting into a crowd of onlookers in their attempt to gun down an African man. In the process, two women were shot. The BIBC is calling on all those who stand for freedom and social justice to join us as we voice our opposition to this act of police violence, and bring awareness to other acts of oppression against the general public, including:

 • Times Square’s traditional hostility to the presence of Africans, and

• The NYPD’s blatant disregard for African and all the people’s of New York safety

It has been documented that in 2012 every 28 hours the police or white vigilantes kill an African somewhere in the United States. These are the statistics we will be demonstrating against on Tuesday in Times Square. We call on the public to come and join us.

The Black is Back Coalition is an organization of different organizations, activists and victims of police violence and other forms of U.S. government oppression. We believe that we must build a movement to lead the people to fight for true power and liberation.

Attacks Against Africans is Colonial Oppression, Not “Afrophobia”!!

by InPDUM Stockholm

stockholm2On Sunday Sept 8th in Malmö, Sweden an African man and his 1,5 year old son were out walking.  A group of white people walked towards them and started to verbally attack the man and his son. They threatened to kill his son while physically attacking the man and the son.  While they were abusing him a group of 10 people came and joined the brutal abusing of the man. They also tried to throw him over the bridge but as he fought he managed to to cling the railing. Under the bridge was ongoing traffic with cars and buses. This brutal attack stopped when the abusers heard the sirens from the police. They ran away and have not been found according to what has been said. The African man was left with a cracked lip and blood all over him. These attacks are taking place all over the world. For instance, In Dallas, TX, on Sept 3rd, a white nationalist 46 year old murderer fired bullets into the face of an 8 year old African boy, Donald Maiden Jr, who had just celebrated his birthday. An African man in Brussels was brutally attacked by the police and they urinated on him in front of his mother. He ended up in coma as a result of the attack. This happened to him because of an invalid bus ticket he had. Read the rest of this entry

INPDUM Attends Million Youth March! Warns White Power of the Coming African Revolution!

On Saturday, September 7 the International Peoples Democratic Uhuru Movement (INPDUM) attended the highly anticipated 15th Anniversary of the Million Youth March.  Although it was not a march, the rally held that day was a beautiful display of African cultural, social, economic and political unity.

Objectively, the MYM served to maintain a political front of resistance against the colonial repression of the NYPD, particularly in Harlem, but in NY in general.  Over the last several weeks the general African Liberation Movement has been involved in a pitch battle with the NYPD for the political space necessary to hold demonstrations and protests in Harlem.
While the white population is not yet confronted with this issue, the democratic right to free speech and assembly for the colonized African community in New York City has been under intensified assault over the last 40 years.
When our Black Power Revolution of the 1960’s was strong, the democratic space of the African community opened up as wide as it had ever been since we were brought here in chains.  Harlem was the epicenter of that resistance. When Malcolm X and King were assassinated, Harlem burned.
However, on the back of the counter-insurgent military defeat of our revolution in the 1960’s the colonial state has been engaged in a protracted war to regain the space our revolution had fought for.  Ultimately, the objective of the state is to keep the African community in chains, literally.  It is only through ongoing struggle and resistance that we are able to push the state back and win democratic space.

Heroin in the 70’s. Crack in the 80’s. U.S. Govt Created Chemical Warfare!

crackimage1 If history is our best teacher then it is feasible to say that the U.S. government and its lackeys among the so-called “rebels”, “Free Syrian Army” and “Al-Nusra” are the ones responsible for the usage of chemical weapons against the people of Syria. This history is, in part, revealed by the U.S. government’s chemical warfare waged against the African population in this country. The presence of heroin in the African community in the 1970’s and crack cocaine in the 80’s were evidence of such chemical warfare.

It is very significant that John Kerry, the same one who was among the most vocal critics of the first Bush regime for its involvement in the drug trade is now one of the most vocal proponents of the U.S. government’s invasion of Syria under the pretense of stopping “chemical warfare”. This is significant because in the late 1980’s John Kerry led a U.S. senate funded special task force to find out the U.S. government and its officials role in the presence of drugs in the U.S. The outcome of that investigation is compiled in a document known as the Kerry Committee report.

No war on Syria! Stop the U.S. war against African people!

InPDUM St. Petersburg

ChairmanOneAfricatourUhuru Sisters, Brothers and Allies,

The International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement in St. Petersburg will be having our community meeting Sunday, September 8th at 4pm at the Uhuru House, 1245 18th Avenue South, to discuss the ever-growing crisis in Syria. The U.S. government is escalated its war rhetoric against Syria in the recent press conference by President Barack Obama where he said that military strikes would occur after approval from congress.  This outrageous threat against the sovereignty of Syria is no different from the daily attacks by U.S. police in every Black community. In addition, the U.S. will be sending our sons an daughters to fight their dirty wars for Mideast military dominance and political influence.

America has been using the settler colonial state of Israel as its white policemen in the region and Syria’s opposition to Israel is the main reason that the U.S. is so adamant about attacking Syria.

We must let the people of the world know that we will not be tricked into believing that the U.S. has a right to determine the fate of the Syrian people.

Come and hear the Chairman of the African People’s Socialist Party and founder of the Uhuru Movement, Omali Yeshitela as he gives expert analysis on the Syria situation and explains why African people have to oppose an attack on Syria. We have to demand self-determination and sovereignty free from military attacks  by the U.S. and its ruthless warmongering gang in the form of France, Britain and others.

No war on Syria!  Stop the U.S. war against African people!  Victory to Syria in its fight against U.S. terrorism!
