This Week on “African Resistance Now!”

Watch the debut broadcast of discussion between InPDUM President Diop Olugbala and emcee Styles P (D-Block) about the Trayvon struggle, resistance against police occupation and the role of media and music in revolution.

ALSO: President Olugbala will interview members of the Oakland Freedom Summer Project committee about the upcoming March and Court for Black Justice where the people will put the Oakland Police Department (OPD) on trial for colonial genocide of the African community.

This very much needed court is being held because the U.S. government and white power has never had to answer to African, Mexican and oppressed people in general for its long history of colonial crimes against us.

The inability of the state to even provide justice around the case of Trayvon Martin is evidence of this.

The OPD is no exception to the rule. In fact, the OPD was founded a couple of years after the signing of the treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo—which was the symbolic document that sealed the U.S. government’s theft of this land from the Mexican people, and its renaming of the land to “California.”

The Oakland Police assumed the role of repressing the Mexican population from whom the land was stolen.

In the 1940s and 50s, Africans were brought to Oakland from the South for the same reason we were taken from Africa: to be slaves for forceslike Kaiser, a prominent family within the white ruling class who made its fortune off the theft of black labor.

Our people built a ship per day for the U.S. military during World War II.

Since those days, Oakland has been a “plantation” and the police have always played the role of “overseers” in our community to make sure Africans remain under the control of white power.

Today, the police have the license to kill, brutalize, frame up, kidnap, extort, rape and distribute drugs in our community — all in the name of protecting the same colonial and parasitic relationship that white power has had with our people since slavery.

Join us for this very important discussion as we organize for Black Power!
