Day 7: The training of African Revolutionaries at Party Intensive in St Petersburg, Florida

Day seven of the Cadre Development Intensive


Day seven of the Cadre Development Intensive was again intense!!

We began with exercise and fitness at 6am. There was an advanced team that jogged to a park a mile away. The other teams did strength training at the Tyron Lewis All Peoples Community Gym and yoga at the Uhuru House.

At 8am we raised the African flag at the Uhuru House.

Chairman Omali Yeshitela met with the flag detail team, and began to develop a more structured raising and lowering of the flag with group formation.

Next, each team came up to give a report on their summations of the first week of the Intensive.

Next on the agenda was to present the Plan of Actions (POAs) on each scenario the teams were given. These POAs were then critiqued by the Office of the Deputy Chair. Each team was very thoroughly critiqued.

We took a break for lunch, then reconvened the POA critiques.

Next, the Chairman gave a security overview.

The most significant thing was that the masses are our security, which is why we must carry ourselves with integrity.

He cited an example of being protected by the masses as this was evident when the Uhuru House was attacked in 1996.

Lessons learned

The importance of Democratic Centralism and ensuring that protocols are followed.

We work to rid ourselves of Liberalism and engage in criticism and self-criticism.

Provacateurs, Sellouts, snitches, informants, thieves and other forms of traitors were discussed.

Audience responses

Questions on cyber security was raised by Sister Yejide Orunmila as well John

Lastly we set up the room for the play, The Meeting (a fictional encounter of Dr. King and Malcom X. 

Marcus Garvey ended the second half of the live acting performances.

We had dinner and then decided to keep the flag raised until after the play.

Looking forward to day 8.
