Video presentation of current analysis on Haiti
from the African Socialist International
In the wake of the devastation following the 7.0 earthquake on January 12, 2010, the African People’s Solidarity Committee, a white organization working under the leadership of the African People’s Socialist Party, expresses our deepest solidarity with African people in Haiti.
Like Katrina, this is a natural disaster intensified by colonial conditions that have been imposed by the U.S. for decades.
We unite with the efforts to send massive resources into Haiti as quickly as possible.
But the disaster hit Haiti 200 years ago and its problem is the colonial devastation that has long subjected this proud and once independent and prosperous African-led country to live on a diet of mud pies and dwell in tin shanty towns.
• The U.S. & French overthrew the democratically elected government of Aristide in 2004. U.S. & U.N. troops are responsible for raping & murdering the people of Haiti.
• Africans fleeing Haiti have been terrorized & locked in concentration camps in the U.S.
• The U.S. has systematically plundered Haiti’s economy and natural resources for thebenefit of the white world, leaving Africans in Haiti in desperate poverty, forced to subsist on pies made of mud.
These are the same colonial conditions faced by African people everywhere. The solution is Africans uniting worldwide to regain control of Africa and all her stolen resources!
Join Africa’s Resources in African Hands Action Network and the Uhuru Solidarity Movement.
We are an activist organization that works under the leadership of the African-led Uhuru Movement. We organize solidarity & raise resources for the worldwide struggle of African people for control over their land, communities and resources.
