PHILADELPHIA — Under the banner of “They Say Cutback! We Say Payback! Reparations Now! Independence in Our Lifetime!,” the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (InPDUM) will convene its annual convention here in the so-called “City of Brotherly Love” on October 2-4, 2009.
The Convention Weekend will be launched Friday, October 2 with the “They Say Cutback! We Say Payback! March for Reparations and Independence” through the streets of Philadelphia. On Saturday and Sunday, October 3 and 4, the convention will be held at the Park Ave. Banquet Hall, 4942 Park Avenue, Philadelphia.
This convention is being convened at a time that U.S. Imperialism is in deep economic and political crisis. The political crisis has deepened to the extent that white power’s last weapon in its arsenal — neocolonialism in the form of the election of Barack Hussein Obama as U.S. President — had to be pulled from its bag of tricks.
As the U.S muddles along, resting on its economic laurels, Obama’s role is to stand in front of the white ruling class, both hands full of money, saying “What’s the matter, Boss, we sick?” as he gives them billions of dollars, no strings attached. Meanwhile the Obama administration attaches many strings to food stamps for the poor working class African population colonized within U.S. borders.
Through its Revolutionary National Democratic Program, InPDUM is fighting back all along the line against imperialism’s attacks on African people and laying the basis for our struggle to gain Black Power.
The upcoming annual InPDUM convention will include the election of leadership, resolutions, reports, workshops and a summation of InPDUM’s previous year’s work by it’s President Chimurenga Waller. The keynote will be an address to the convention by African People’s Socialist Party founder and Chairman, Omali Yeshitela.
InPDUM calls on its rank and file membership and leadership to leave no stone unturned in our efforts to mobilize for this historic gathering of freedom loving and freedom seeking African people.
InPDUM is calling on all local organizers to bring buses full of members and supporters to the convention this year. If you live in a city where there is not a local organization you can build one by contacting our International Organizing Office at 215-459-7551. The more people we get on board the more dynamic our process will be. Let’s get out there and start fundraising for your contingent’s bus.
The convention fee is $50 and it will cover your convention materials, packet and continental breakfast for both days. Send in your registration fees today!
