Colonial rulers can’t rule in the same old way

Every time we go to bed at night, we may wake up tomorrow in a world that is unrecognizable from the one we left yesterday because we have entered a world that is changing so fast. 

In 2016, French president Emmanuel Macron left the dying Parti Socialiste, a white left colonial organization to create La Republique en Marche (LREM) for his successful capture of the French presidency in 2017.

In 2022, preparing for an electoral contest for his second presidential mandate, he changed the name of his party to La Renaissance. But on Sunday, June 9, 2024, at the writing of this article, Macron, the French president, suffered a very severe electoral defeat in the European parliamentary elections. 

Macron’s Renaissance Party obtained 14.5 percent compared to 31.5 for Marine Le Pen’s Rassemblement National. This defeat may prove fatal for him and his political party. 

Macron has been a member of three political parties in less than ten years. That is how unstable and fragile colonial French power is today.

Macron has been forced to call for snap French legislative elections whose first round will take place on June 30. It is clear in France that a sector of the French colonial ruling class is prepared to facilitate the French far-right Leader, Marine Le Pen, to access the presidency–as a response to the crisis of the colonial mode of production.

The ongoing ejection of colonial France from three countries: Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger in West Africa has a lot to do with the crisis in France today.

The rise of BRICS (an intergovernmental organization of Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Iran, Egypt, Ethiopia, and the United Arab Emirates) with approximately 40 percent of the world’s population, 32 percent of the world GDP and 25 percent of the Foreign direct investment are one institution that most of the people have begun to recognize as a clear source for the crisis of the colonial west. 

The people of Palestine stand on the top of the forces of change in the world today. They are giving life to new struggles everywhere around the world. The emergence of encampments around university campuses in the U.S., France, Britain, Spain, Japan, etc. are concrete examples of that.

It is the actions of the Palestinian resistance that have reintroduced the meaning of liberty or death. Status quo is no longer an option. This is what young people around the world are being inspired by and attracted to.

We want everybody to understand that the end of the status quo means the eradication of colonialism as the mode of production. This is what we need to take to all encampments on campuses. 

Another significant victory for the Palestinian resistance was symbolically achieved in France: The waving of the Palestinian flag inside the French Parliament by La France Insoumise (LFI) of Jean Luc Melechon, the representative of the leftist organization in France.

In Occupied Palestine, Benjamin Netanyahu, the current prime minister and leader of the genocidal settler State of Israel has been shaken by becoming a target of the colonial ICC court.  

This is a political victory for the Palestinian people that needs to be transformed into reality by the victory of the Palestinian Revolution. 

The African National Congress reveals divided petty bourgeoisie

With merely 40.2 percent compared to 62 percent in the 1994 elections, the neocolonial African National Congress (ANC) has lost its parliamentary majority in South Africa. The ANC leadership has lost the monopole of neocolonial power, it now has to share power with other factions represented by the African petty bourgeoisie and the white settler colonizers. 

Julius Malema and Jacob Zuma are former leaders of the ANC, obtaining respectively 9 percent and 13 percent of the vote, ending the monopoly of the ANC. Does this mean that the African working class will be in power? No! 

It just means that the ANC has to share neocolonial power with other factions of the African petty bourgeoisie, including former ANC leaders. It means that we have to defeat a divided African petty bourgeoisie.

U.S. elections and ruling class split

In the U.S. for the first time, a former president, Donald Trump, has been convicted on felony charges of “falsifying business records” by the U.S. colonial court and stands trial for other pending cases. 

This is unprecedented as the whole world is watching how the current president, Joseph Biden, uses the colonial State apparatus to neutralize his opponent. 

Part of Biden’s strategy is to use non-white judges to crush Donald Trump’s chances of contesting and winning the presidential election, especially since Biden’s Democratic party is losing more and more of the African vote. According to the Washington Post, “Biden has installed the most non-White judges of any president…” 

Black judges and prosecutors involved in sentencing Donald Trump are not an expression of Black Power but of the same white colonial power using a black face. 

Colonizers threatened by the rise of the African anti-colonial Movement

The September 3, 2024 trial of Chairman Omali Yeshitela and the Uhuru 3 is a major sign that the world is being transformed.

It is a recognition of the strategic significance of the Black Revolution inside U.S. borders led by its own vanguard Party, the African People’s Socialist Party, and informed by its own theory of African Internationalism.

The U.S. ruling class military strategy known as the Africa Command (AFRICOM), which is a response to keep Africa in the global colonial mode of production with black faces at the helm of the U.S. army, is very revealing as the crisis is gathering pace against the U.S. led colonial mode of production. 

The neocolonial forces deployed for the purpose of U.S. colonial control of Africa are Lloyd J. Austin, a former four-star black army general; first and current black secretary of defense, general Michael X Garret; and general Michael E. Langley from the U.S. Marine Corps, who became the sixth commander of the U.S. Africa Command in August 2022, shortly after the FBI launched violent pre-dawn raids against Chairman Omali and the Uhuru Movement.

The role of the African proletariat and the African Revolution have never been so great and paramount in determining the destiny of the world.

The mobilization for the U.S. colonial trial that begins on September 3, in Tampa, Florida is a key part of building a real genuine movement to stop the U.S. colonial State, which threatens the peace and prosperity of everyone on the planet.

Join this historical groundbreaking mobilization to drop the charges against the Uhuru 3! 

Put the U.S. colonial State on trial!
