Tune in to African Liberation Day – Live from Washington, DC – 11am-5pm U.S. Eastern Time, Saturday May 25

The Call
This is a call by the African People’s Socialist International to join the African People’s Socialist Party in holding African Liberation Day events in Europe and North America as part of the resurgence of the international African Liberation Movement.
Despite the assassinations and global repression of the 1960s and the current maneuvering of the colonial powers throughout Africa and the world, we are rebuilding and becoming better organized on every front.
With the creation of the African Socialist International, we have our own organization that is busy on several continents and hosting African Liberation Day events in Washington, DC, USA and Paris, France in Europe.
We have finally internationalized a consciousness of African Liberation Day as more than ceremony and commemoration; it is an organizing opportunity that is especially important in the context of today’s crisis of imperialist white power and its growing, desperate attempt to rescue itself through deepening its parasitic hold on the Continent of Africa and African people everywhere.

Instead it is an honest and wholehearted attempt by its organizers and participants to continue the process of winning our liberation as a people and a call to action to deepen that process.
