U.S. President-elect Donald J. Trump was propelled to victory largely by the support of “non-college educated” white workers. This popular upsurge has been described as “the revenge of the white working class” by the Washington Post.
The Wall Street Journal marveled at the rise of a “Trumpen-proletariat” who were eager to follow behind the self-defined “blue collar billionaire” on his quest to restore America to greatness.
To understand this phenomenon and the way forward, let us begin by looking at the nature and origins of capitalism itself.
The Uhuru Solidarity Movement salutes all of the white people who are motivated to action by the line drawn in the sand by the Trump election. We salute all the North Americans who are moved to take a visible stand on the side of solidarity with African, Indigenous and other oppressed peoples in face of the threats to them by Trump's white nationalist mandate.
The rising African Revolution, however, is calling on white people to take very specific actions to stand in solidarity with African people. It does not include wearing a safety pin
Donald Trump was selected to become the next U.S. president on November 8th, 2016, an event that has emboldened white nationalist attacks on Muslims, Indigenous people, Mexicans and African people inside the U.S.
Trump’s call to “make America great again” is a call that addresses the basest interests of white people to return to blatant slavery and genocide on which this country was founded.
In a political climate of gloom and fear, many white people are protesting in cities throughout the U.S. But the reality is that it would be just as necessary for us to demonstrate if Hilary Clinton had been selected to be the president of the United States, as it is now with Trump as the president-elect.
The Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM) toured the U.S. to hold the historic Days in Solidarity with African People events of October 2016!
We completed a seven-city tour across the U.S. to build white solidarity with Black Power and organize members of the white community to unite with the growing demand for reparations to African people.
DSAP 2016 commemorated the 40th anniversary of the founding of the African People’s Solidarity Committee (APSC) in 1976, a groundbreaking move by the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) and its Chairman Omali Yeshitela.
Reparations to African people is the cornerstone of APSC’s work.
Chairman Omali Yeshitela of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) will be honored in an evening reception where he will tell the story of the 1966 protest that culminated in his tearing down of the anti-African mural which had hung in St. Petersburg’s City Hall since the 1940s.
The event will take place at Akwaaba Hall at the Uhuru House, 1245 18th Ave. South, St. Petersburg on Tuesday, Sept. 13th at 6 p.m. and is sponsored by the Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM).
Chairman Omali, then known as Joseph Waller, will reveal his plans to counter the city’s current attempt “to whitewash the issue of the removal of the obscene colonialist mural and undermine its significance for the African community of St. Petersburg and the U.S.”
The Uhuru Solidarity Movement (USM) is the organization of white people formed by and working under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) with the mission of going into the white community to organize white people to stand in solidarity with African people in the U.S. and abroad.
White people, we need to take responsibility.
It is with our permission, whether through silence and complicity or through open approval and even hero worship of law enforcement, that the State carries out the murders of Africans every 28 hours.
