The International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM) is an organization that is no stranger to struggle and resistance.
The oppressed and colonized working class Africans of Houston, Texas recognize the benefits of this organization and consolidated a local chapter on Nov 20, 2016 to address the question of liberation for Africans.
It has been a long time coming that this grassroots organization made its way to the home of the revolutionary leader, Carl Hampton.
It is the mission of InPDUM Houston to build and develop those things that are to the benefit of African political interests.
Under the leadership of Local President Teila Robinson, Secretary Adeyemi Negasi, Economic Development Coordinator Johannes Henderson and Outreach Coordinator Angelese Bentley, the first issue InPDUM Houston will address is the case of Alva Braziel, who was executed by the Houston Police Department on July 9, 2016. We take the position that whether Alva Braziel was armed or unarmed is a non-issue. We recognize that the position of the police is based off of geography and who it is that they are engaging.
The training in disarming and making peaceful arrests that the pigs enact when in white communities is non-existent in black communities.
We demand black community control of the police! InPDUM Houston is putting out a call to our people to stand with us.
In addition to the struggle against police violence and murder in our communities, InPDUM Houston is set to struggle for decent housing and to stop evictions and the gentrification of our communities.
InPDUM’s mission is to struggle for and win Black Power for black working class and poor people. We will fight for what is best for the African working class, which is the vast majority of us.
Houston’s InPDUM branch will also partner with the All African People’s Development and Empowerment Project (AAPDEP) to continue the work of the 5th Ward Community Garden which has been a staple of the 5th Ward working class community for the past seven years!
Houston welcomes InPDUM and InPDUM welcomes Houston. All power to the people and Black Power to the African community!
Fight for freedom, join InPDUM!
