Build the Independent African Economy! Join African Liberation Day, May 25, 2013 in Washington, DC.

On Saturday, May 25, 2013, African Liberation Day commemorations in the U.S. will be held in Washington, DC at Howard University.
The main activity of ALD this year will be to advance the discussion of African economic independence as the basis for political independence.
We will introduce Black Star Industries (BSI), the economic institution created by the African People's Socialist Party (APSP) as the key instrument for developing our own independent anti-colonial economy.
The APSP is building an economic and political movement in the spirit of Marcus Garvey, the leader of the greatest movement of Africans in modern history.
Garvey's Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) moved toward constructing a unifying African national economy for our people throughout the world.
The APSP's Black Star Industries is 21st Century Garveyism in the hands of the African working class to build the independent economic capacity of Africans worldwide.
It also provides opportunities for community partnership subsidiary companies, which benefit both Black Star Industries and enterprising individuals.
Through BSI, we are practicing what Garvey taught us by launching economic projects to build our own African economic institutions in order to consolidate the African nation.
Black Star Industries is a Limited Liability Company that brings all of the economic development institutions and projects of the African People's Socialist Party under one single umbrella.
Currently, there are five totally owned BSI Subsidiaries, nine Uhuru Movement non-profits based on African self-determination and three developing community partnership subsidiary companies.
Economic self-reliance is vital
Economic self-reliance must be tied to the day-to-day organizing and mobilizing of our people as we seek African liberation through revolution.
When the first African Liberation Day demonstration was held in 1972, the U.S. front of the African Liberation Movement was reeling from deathblows being delivered by the U.S. government in a counteroffensive that had littered the international landscape with the bodies of murdered black freedom fighters around the world.
Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of others were rounded up at gunpoint and herded into concentration camp jails and prisons in the U.S.
But today, in 2013, the struggles of the oppressed peoples of the world, who are taking back our own resources, have caused the parasitic capitalist economic system to experience its deepest crisis ever.
It is our responsibility to deepen the crisis by building our own movement to create economic independence for Africa and African people. This is economic independence for our future and our survival.
The African People's Socialist Party is also holding ALD activities in Paris, France on June 1 and 2, 2013.
These African Liberation Day events in Europe and North America are designed to win active participation of African people in our own liberation movement. They are calls to join the Party and the Movement under its leadership.
They are calls for mass participation in building our own economy.
They are calls to liberate and unite Africa and African people in Africa and worldwide.
