    The African People’s Solidarity Committee has launched a campaign to gain support and resources from the white community for the international African liberation movement. The campaign will culminate in mid-October with a series of events across the U.S. featuring speakers from Africa, multi-media presentations and cultural performances. (see

    Speakers at the African People's Solidarity Events include:

    Mfanelo Skwatsha, member of the National Executive Council of the Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) of Azania, comes direct from South Africa in the PAC’s first U.S. speaking tour since the end of apartheid. Led by Robert Mangaliso Sobukwe, the PAC launched the mass protests against the pass laws that galvanized international support for the anti-apartheid movement. Today, the poverty of the indigenous African population is worse than during apartheid. The PAC is campaigning to overturn the ruling African National Congress’ policy of leaving 96% of arable land in the hands of foreign capital and white settlers. Skwatsha will discuss the PAC’s plans for the upcoming elections and their program for empowering the African working class and poor peasants.

    Chernoh Alpha M. Bah, Director of the Africanist Movement with over 100,000 members across West Africa returns to the U.S. to report on corruption in the recent Sierra Leone elections and the failure of the regime change in Guinea-Conakry to effect change in that volatile country. He will speak about the Africanist Movement’s continued efforts to implement national democratic programs in Guinea ( and Sierra Leone (http://*************/story?resource_name=sierra-leone-statement).
