Day 5 – The training of African revolutionaries at monthlong Party intensive in St Petersburg, Florida

The day started early in the morning with physical education divided into three group;  Diop Olugbala assistant Tyron Lewis Gym coordinator led the body weight training, John Thomas manager of Tyron Lewis Gym led weight strength training and Penny Hess, Chairwoman of APSC led Yoga.
The participants of the intensive have so far showed a huge appreciation for the physical education.
This part of the agenda should not be underestimated since we understand that the physical and the mental work together and it will enhance our capacity to understand the political theoretical studies.
Before the study session of the day we raised the national flag outside our own Uhuru Housel.
Today’s study, led by Chairman Omali Yeshitela, revolved around the question of The State. So far this has been the most active discussion at the intensive as participants grapple with the concept of State Power.
African Internationalism teaches us the significance of the state and what role it plays in our oppression. And if you don’t understand our relationship to the state there are a lot of things that we won’t be able to comprehend. Many participants understanding got deepened after this workshop.
During the Q&A session participants were able to apply their understanding of dialectical materialism. Comrade Deputy Chairwoman, Ona Zene Yeshitela, asked about the reality of seizing State Power and really infused the idea into the comrades so they will build our Party and our departments.  
Later that day the different groups worked on their POAs (Plan of Action) which will be presented during Friday’s session.
The day ended with outreach in the streets of St Petersburg in the form of "dropping" brochures from door to door.
Day 5 was a very good day!
