The African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) is calling on you to support the African freedom fighters who are traveling from throughout the world to St. Petersburg, Florida to be trained as leaders and cadres of the African Revolution.
The Party will train a new generation of the “Best Sons and Daughters of Africa” during the month-long cadre-building intensive from July 2 to 29, 2016 at the Party’s national headquarters.
Just as these Africans have decided that there is no cost too great and are leaving jobs and families in order to complete this rigorous training, we too must put every resource we have to ensure housing, transportation, and training materials are available.
Through our collective support, we must make it possible for these dedicated comrades to attend despite whatever financial barriers might otherwise prevent them from participating.
Donate towards the cost of plane tickets for comrades from Sierra Leone and Johannesburg, where our people struggle to survive on less than $1 per day!
The month-long Cadre Development School is a rigorous “elite” process targeting only those Party comrades who aspire to be leaders of the African Revolution and have an unwavering desire to win the liberation and unification of Africa and African people regardless of the personal price.
The Cadre Development School is a challenging Party “boot camp” that grounds our forces in the theory of African Internationalism and the art and science of leading Party work.
This creates a force of dynamic self-starters and creative problem-solvers in the face of difficulties.
During the four weeks, the comrades undergo a transformation, emerging from the process devoted to the African nation, the African working class and the African People’s Socialist Party, with a firm grasp of the skills of revolutionary leadership and strong links to the masses of African people.
The Best Sons and Daughters of Africa Cadre Development School combines political education—much of which is led by Chairman Omali Yeshitela himself, along with other Party veterans—with community organizing, workshops in organizational skills and vigorous physical training.
The comrades work together in units, elect their own leadership, give presentations on key political questions, sell The Burning Spear newspaper and hold their own event with community members whom they have organized.
Comrades will also become physically fit as most mornings begin with lively sessions of weight training and aerobics at the Party’s TyRon Lewis Community Gym or on runs through the community chanting and carrying the red, black and green flag.
As Chairman Omali Yeshitela envisioned in his important 6th Congress political report published in “An Uneasy Equilibrium,” graduates of the Cadre Development School will become “professional African Internationalist evangelists and skilled organizers” capable of “going out into the world building local Party organizations from city to city” when called on to do so.
This is your opportunity to contribute to strengthening the African People’s Socialist Party and the historic mission of the African working class to liberate our people and our Africa and govern ourselves!
