This week’s event will focus on the Uhuru movement’s candidates who are shaking up the elections in St. Petersburg, FL. There will be a video message from Eritha “Akile” Cainion, who is running for District 6 City Council. Jesse Nevel, the candidate for Mayor of St. Petersburg, Florida, will be appearing via livestream. Both candidates are running on a joint platform of reparations and economic development to the black community, black community control of the police, worker’s power, an end to gentrification, big money out of politics, and Justice for the Three Drowned Black Girls – 3DBG. Akile is a 20 year old powerful leader who is from the heart of the black community, having spent her whole life in St Pete fighting for the people, and is Chair of the Three Drowned Black Girls Committee. Jesse Nevel, 27, is National Chair of the Uhuru Solidarity Movement and has spent the last decade of his life working under the leadership of the African working class to build a movement of white reparations to African people.
We will also be reading an article about the St. Petersburg elections from the Burning Spear Newspaper.
The Burning Spear newspaper is the oldest Black Power newspaper in existence. The Spear has published without interruption since the 1960s. Known as the "Voice of the International African Revolution," The Spear carries dynamic articles on the most pressing issues affecting the lives of African workers in the U.S., in Africa and around the world.
This is the only place you can find real political analysis of the crisis of parasitic capitalism, insight into world and local events and a focus on the realities and struggles of African and other colonized people. On its pages, The Spear tells you how to get organized, how to struggle and how to win.
