The defeatists among us will find a million reasons why we should abandon the core principles of African liberation and The haters among us will attack those of us who fight for the liberation of our people, including the liberation of the African mind The collaborators with white supremacy among us will call those of us who believe in the empowerment of Black people foolish What we must do is surround ourselves with like-people people who realize that our culture and history is our immune system Never give up the fight and surround yourself with like-minded people

They are obliged by France to put all they money into French central bank under French minister of Finance control It’s such an evil system even denounced by the European Union but France is not ready to move from that colonial system which puts about 500 billions dollars from Africa to its treasury every year Take the Example of Togo After the independence of the country, France asked the small and poor country to pay for the benefit they’ve got from french colonisation The reimbursement of that so called “colonial debt” was close to 40% of the country budget in 1963 and Till today, 2013, Togo and about 20 other African countries still have to pay colonial debt to France African leaders who refuse are killed and During the last 50 years 45 coup were committed in Africa by French mercenaries and proxies

Africans In Horn Of Africa and Rest of Middle East

Egypt is still so intimidated by its glorious Black Nubian African past that its Arab government would not allow thorough research into Egypt past and In some places who got Arabization in Horn Africa and the rest of the Arab world Africans are treated as the scum of the earth And Blacks in these countries cannot aspire to positions of respect or authority There are hardly Africans in high government positions in Arab governed African countries and you should look into Mauritania left the Economic Community of West African States to join the union formed by the Arab North African States A few years ago Mauritania sacked all black natives from their civil service positions Black Mauritanians protest their plight to the African Union (AU) without receiving attention because AU black leaders fear offending their Arab colleagues in the AU In Mauritania they have had to declare an end to slavery six times in this century alone and still nothing has changed for the captive majority African natives African slavery is still in their statute books African slavery in Mauritania is what the on going quarrel between Mauritania and Senegal is about The quarrel forced black African refugees to pour across the border from Mauritania into Senegal and In Algeria Arabs throw stones at black people including diplomats in markets and other public places and in Saudi Arabia blacks are treated worse than animals after using their life savings to go there on pilgrimage and Hundreds of Ethiopian who have lived all their lives in Saudi Arabia are being repatriated daily right now after loosing an arm or leg for some minor or trumped up offense and without regard for their comfort,welfare or rights and The Arabs succeeded in doing the same thing in Northern Africa where the original Nubian African owners of the land have almost all been wiped out and the rest marginalized (enslaved) by their Arab invaders/settlers since 642 CE and the Islamization is not the problem in Sudan because the majority Furnawi people of Darfur are Muslims the problem in The Fascism government A coalition of 50 charities in Darfur, Sudan published a study in mid December, 2008 confirming what the world already knew that the Janjaweed and the Sudanese army with the backing of their government, during joint or individual attacks, raped, tortured and killed Sudanese Africans and razed their villages to repopulate them with Arab nomads. They rounded up and abducted escapees from hide-outs in the bush and at other times raided refugee camps to kidnap Africans as sex and labour slaves working them to the bones as domestic and farm labour The army flew their captives in planes to Khartoum at night and shared them among soldiers like you allocate bags of commodities and used them as sex and domestic servants Kidnapped victims interviewed said their captors told them that ‘they were not human beings and that they were there to serve them In the five years between 2003 and 2008, over 300,000 Sudanese Africans were killed 100,000 abducted and 2.7 million rendered homeless refugees with their land appropriated by Muslims brotherhood The Khatoum government admitted 14,000 kidnaps You can imagine what happened when the world turned a blind eye on Sudan in the twenty years between 1983 when the conflict began !!!!!

Thomas Sankara Marxist revolutionary, Pan-Africanist theorist, and President of Burkina Faso from 1983 to 1987 Viewed by some as a charismatic and iconic figure of revolution he is commonly referred to as “African Che Guevara” His revolutionary programs for African self-reliance as a defiant alternative to the neo-liberal development strategies imposed by the West made him an icon to many of Africans poor Sankara remained popular with most of his country’s impoverished citizens However his policies alienated and antagonised the vested interests of an array of groups which included the small but powerful Burkinabé middle class the tribal leaders whom he stripped of the long-held traditional right to forced labour and tribute payments and the foreign financial interests in France and their ally the Ivory Coast. As a result he was overthrown and assassinated in a coup d’état led by the French-backed Blaise Compaoré on October 15, 1987 A week before his execution he declared: While revolutionaries as individuals can be murdered but you cannot kill ideas

Pan-African Congress

Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere convened the last Pan-African Congress June 17–19, 1974, in Dar es Salaam Commonly known as the Six PAC this was the first congress held in Africa Nyerere considered this meeting coming after national liberation had spread throughout Africa and the Caribbean as an opportunity to discuss the “means, and further, the progress, of opposition to racialism, colonialism, oppression and exploitation everywhere and placing these in “the context of a worldwide movement for human equality and national self-determination” Alluding to the new challenges presented by independence Nyerere asked those present to recognize that “an end to colonialism is not an end to the oppression of man,” and to continue working “against oppression by the leaders of those countries which have recently attained freedom whether this is directed against other black men and women or against people of different races”Speeches and debates at the Six PAC focused on race and class and the African Diaspora but the proceedings were punctuated by heated disagreements among delegates from the United States and the Caribbean. Despite the contentiousness the resolution adopted at the Six PAC reflected the efforts of delegates to envision the tasks of a new struggle and a new liberated future This resolution focused on neo-colonialism as the new threat to African diasporic independence and on the continued oppression of Africa; took up the struggle against apartheid in South Africa; class differences and exploitation in Africa; and the Palestinian liberation movement and The Six PAC held several sessions on the oppression and exploitation of women the resolution itself calling for the democratization and “transformat[ion] of gender relations on the continent and in the diaspora” Coming over a half-century after the first Pan-African Congress in Paris, and some eighty-odd years after the Chicago Conference on Africa, the Six PAC showed the imaginative daring that drew those first delegates to London in 1900 and inspired Du Bois to work so diligently on the congresses from 1919 to 1927 In its closing lines the resolution talked of the Six PAC delegates daring “to dream the same dream that has always filled the villages, ghettos, townships and slave quarters with hope, that has always animated the spirit of resistance” It resonated with the optimism of those earlier meetings, if it betrayed in a far more public way the limits of that illusive ideal to racial unity A struggle against new forms of exploration and oppression awaited the African Diaspora and the resolution concluded with a fitting echo of Du Bois

Pan-Africanism represents the complexities of black political and intellectual thought over two hundred years What constitutes Pan-Africanism what one might include in a Pan-African movement often changes according to whether the focus is on politics, ideology, organizations or culture Pan-Africanism actually reflects a range of political views At a basic level it is a belief that African peoples both on the African continent and in the Diaspora share not merely a common history but a common destiny This sense of interconnected pasts and futures has taken many forms especially in the creation of political institutions

Pan-Africanism

Pan-Africanism is generally taken to mean that set of political ideas asserting that Africa is a single entity which must unite All the peoples of the continent are fundamentally similar They all bore the yoke of colonialism not to mention slavery just as today they all suffer the exactions of neo-colonialism The peoples of Africa have a common struggle against a common enemy which dominates and exploits them all imperialism Also there is in Africa a profound cultural unity which thanks to Pan-Africanism proves that the African peoples share a common destiny and Pan Africanism To promote the well-being and unity of African peoples and peoples of African descent throughout the world and To demand self-determination and independence for African peoples and other subject races from the domination of powers claiming sovereignty and trusteeship over them and To secure equality of civil rights for African peoples and the total abolition of all forms of racial discrimination and To strive to co-operate between African peoples and others who share our aspirations
