Conference organiser Luwezi Kinshasa explains, “We have entered a new and most critical phase in world history: the era of the complete defeat of imperialist white power. The ongoing crisis of imperialism, caused by the rise of resistance of the vast majority of the peoples of the world, is deepening. Even neo-colonialism, the imperialist strategy of placing faces that look like us in power to administer our colonial oppression is failing. “It is time now that we, the African workers and poor peasants, take our future into our own hands and liberate our Africa under an all-African socialist government. With our unity, we will defeat the opportunist African petty bourgeoisie that has sold us out time and time again. With the power of the over one billion Africans worldwide we can forward the legacy of the great Marcus Garvey and realize his dream of a united and free Africa. “The many years of work to build the African Socialist International has been a process to forward that legacy. This 7th Conference to Build the African Socialist International (ASI) in October opens the way to the ASI founding Congress. “Under the brilliant leadership of African People’s Socialist Party (APSP) Chairman Omali Ye$hitela, we are fulfilling a vision of the future to build a United States of Africa, free from imperialist-imposed borders and their requisite fractured nationalities and governments and their dependent economies. This vision is one that sees our United States of Africa under the leadership of the workers in alliance with poor peasants. It is a project to make Africa a powerhouse in the world, where no nation would be able to steal our resources and labour at our expenses. “For so long, our riches and talents have shaped, against our own will, every aspect of modern civilisation in the hands of our oppressors. With all of the scattered fronts of African resistance against imperialism throughout the world united into a single fighting revolutionary organisation, the world will be changed forever. The power of over one billion African people will free Africa from the illegitimate rule of the tiny African neo-colonialist class and defeat imperialism forever on Africa soil. “We call on Africans around the world who unite with the struggle for the unification and liberation of Africa to join in this amazing effort to build the African Socialist International.” The Conference to Build the African Socialist International will convene on Saturday, October 7th at 8:30 a.m. at the African Caribbean Centre, 9 Clarendon Road Hornsey, in London.
