African Liberation Day 2012
African Liberation Day (ALD) at the Chestnut Community Centre on Saturday 26 May 2012, 3pm to 8pm around the theme of African Youth: Get Up! Stand Up! Organise!
Submitted By: A-APRP
A spoken word artist & others will be performing at the event. There will also be stalls selling Art and Crafts, Books and African fashion accessories. PLUS - there will be a £50 prize for the winner of our Open Mic session of positive lyrics. Please attend on time to register for the competition.
The A-APRP is calling:
Africans and oppressed peoples everywhere to return to the basic tenets of revolutionary Pan-Africanism and struggle in taking control of African land using African culture and achieving this through organisation.
African Liberation Day (ALD) is the direct descendant of Africa Freedom Day (AFD). It was created by the Conference of African States, convened under the auspices of the Kwame Nkrumah - led government in Accra, Ghana in April 1958. The eight heads of states at that meeting intended
Africa Freedom Day to be a day marking renewed commitment to the liberation and decolonisation of the whole African continent and its entire people. At that meeting April 15th was designated as Africa Freedom Day.
Subsequently, when the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) was created in May of 1963, the founding delegates proclaimed May 25th, African Liberation Day (ALD), as the successor commemoration day to Africa Freedom Day. Today ALD events are held throughout Africa and the African Diaspora.
About the A-APRP
The A-APRP is one of the revolutionary political organisations throughout the African world; it asserts that all people of African descent are Africans, and that Africa is our homeland. The AAPRP has its base in Africa and chapters in Africa, Europe, Canada, The Caribbean and the USA. It seeks to build chapters wherever African people live, suffer and struggle.
The ALD 2012 Conference and Rally will co-hosted by Pan - African Society Community Forum (PASCF) and Moya Wa Taifa. Presentations around the main theme will include:
- The necessity for organisation and political education: the key to power, self-determination
and responding to cultural banditry;
- The Role of Youth and Students in the African Liberation Struggle;
- The necessity for Pan-Africanism: A clear basis for peace in Africa and an end to coups and proxy wars and Africom in Africa
- Gun crime: making Africans part of the solution
- Understanding our oppression in the context of Capitalist Austerity
- Turning spontaneous reaction into Revolutionary Action
- Knowing our History as a basis for determining our future.
The A-APRP invites all Africans to join this permanent revolutionary mass institution celebrated by Africans throughout the world.
Attendees will have the opportunity to voice their opinions and fully participate in the discussions.
A member of the A-APRP comments, “This year’s ALD will be particularly focused on bringing African people together to clarify and increase their understanding of how they can help advance our struggle for total liberation by looking at our culture and becoming part of an organisation.”
ALD highlights the need for African people to be politically educated and organised against the oppression they face which is manifested in many forms such as gender oppression, racial and national oppression, neo-colonialism, mis-education, disorganisation and ideological confusion.
