    Thanks kuumba for the info. I have been to that site and it is a very good resource to inform us about the issues effecting our brothas and sistas in Africa, as well as how the actions of other countries effects them.

    Revolutionary Greetings,

    We hope the family is well ideologically and biologically. We thank you for doing the research on Pan-Africanism. Brotha, Baba posed an interesting question. What is the next phase? In the post that we gave you the author is speaking of more or less Pan-Africanism part 2. Which is really a continuation of the legacy and theories and practices of the great Pan-Africanists. But what we would like to put forth here is that in terms of the next phase or second wave of Pan-African activity is to consolidate our forces. Now as some of you know the All-African People's Revolutionary Party has always made it clearly known that our only program at this phase of Pan-Africanism is to build the PARTY!
    We don't take this lightly nor do we simply placard it. In order for us to consolidate our forces we need to make it known to them that the only way that Pan-Africanism can be achieved is by revolutionary and progressive parties and organization linking themselves at the level of a central command. That can take many forms. This then, means that we need to work together organization-to-organization and coordinate action plans that are to be immediately implemented on the ground (Africa). Africa is primary, but it is not sole. So then as we have said we need our sistahs and brothas in the Pan-African world working for this objective. So we want to make this piece short for the reader. Hopefully, we overstand what is being said. We will repeat it one mo' gen. We have to get in contact with African groups and put it down. Say listen up, we need to free the land, labor, wealth and cultural identity of Africa. We need to expose capitalism-imperialism, neo-colonialism, zionism, sexism everyday. We need to go to rural Africa and make it plain to the peasantry class i.e., the most exploited class and our ideological base. Tell no lies and accept no easy victories. That's what the next phase is all about in a nutshell give or take somethings. Everyone please add to the discussion and help us all to learn better.

    In our organization we challenge our brotha and sista organizations. We are still calling from the All-African Committee for Political Coordination similar to that plan in the Handbook of Revolutionary Warfare, by Dr. Nkrumah. One other thing we need to do as Pan-Africanists is to get out of the U.S. and travel and help consolidate the organization-to-organization link.

    We have to go now because our time is limited. Peeeace!!

    It seems to me that as we approach ideological maturity, we will overcome the divide and conquer tactics that have been thrown at us. To this end, we will no linger allow ourselves to be divided along color, sectarian or ethnic lines. Instead, we will find ways and means to unify all of Africa (including Arabia and Madagascar and the various Islands) on the basis of common interests and destinies. This is not mere theory. From the very beginning of the anti-colonial struggle, efforts have been made to unify ourselves in totality.

    At a minimum, we must come to see that those who have proven their animosity to us in many other areas are one and the same as those who seek to divide us, now. For instance, while we are being told lies about how evil the Muslims are, the Muslims are being told lies about how evil the Christians are. It is an old trick.

    The next phase of the Pan-Africanism must see us unite. Brother Gamal Nkrumah recently wrote a commentary for BBC News called "African Unity Still a Dream". I commend Brother Gamal for offering a vsion for total African Unity. I recommend that we read and study Brother Gamal's commentary.
