GAPP Emerging Position on CARICOM Reparations

  This is a link to some other position papers on CARICOM Reparations which predate but compliment the GAPP Position Paper. Advertisements

GAPP supports the Afrikan Emancipation Day Reparations March and the Stop the Maangamizi Campaign

The Global Afrikan Peoples Parliament would like to echo the Call to Action to join this show of strength and to bring a message to the white power structures who are historically and currently responsible for inflicting the Maangamizi. We ask you to join us in the march to Downing St to charge the British Government with Genocide and Ecocide!

We encourage you to visit the campaign website and find out more about the aims of the Stop the Maangamizi campaign and petition.  The march is a vehicle by which this petition is delivered and it has its own aims:

March Aims

Supporting Reparations

So join us on Monday 1st Mosiah (August) as we continue to mobilise, educate and move towards the call for a Commission of Inquiry for Truth and Reparatory Justice as outlined in the Stop the Maangamizi Petition. And remember, Reparations is more than money and more than going back to Afrika. This crime against Humanity CANNOT be ignored. Justice is our right!

GAPP Strengthens Role in Internationalist Soldarity Networking with the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) of AZANIA/SOUTH AFRICA

The Global Afrikan People’s Parliament in United Kingdom (GAPP-UK) was strongly represented at an Internationalist Solidarity networking meeting with a visiting Leadership Delegation of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) of South Africa at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, on Saturday, 28th November 2015. The meeting, which resulted from discussions and planning going on for some considerable time between interested parties, was presided over by Brother-Fighter Dali Mpofu, the EFF Chair, Brother-Fighter Floyd Nyiko Shivambu, the EFF Vice-President and Member of both the South African Parliament and the Pan-African Parliament (PAP), as well as Sister-Fighter Nkagisang Poppy Mokgosi, an EFF Member of the South African Parliament. It was facilitated by Kofi Mawuli Klu, a Co-Vice-Chair of the Pan-Afrikan Reparations Coalition in Europe (PARCOE) and a member of the Leadership Facilitation Team (LFT) of GAPP-UK. After kick-starting propositions by Dali, Floyd, Nkagisang, Brian Kwoba, Esther Stanford-Xosei and Kofi, followed by discussions involving a good number of participants, the meeting endorsed the establishment of an Economic Freedom Fighters Internationalist Solidarity Action Command (EFFISAC), to be organised and coordinated from London, United Kingdom. It was agreed that a South African-led EFF Support Group that is organising itself in Britain into a local party branch of the EFF Abroad will also be an autonomous integral part of the EFFISAC.

Building strong relations with the EFF of South Africa and similar radical contingents of the resurgent Pan-Afrikan Liberation movement at home and abroad is a vital part of the Glocal Activism element in the Strategic Organisational Plan of the GAPP-UK, with particular regard to its relevant cardinal action points such as the PANAFRIKAMAYIBUYE Pan-Afrikan Liberation Movement Global Revival Action Learning Safaris (PANAFRIKAMAYIBUYE-PALMGRALS) and the All-Afrikan People’s Global Lobby for Unity Solutions (AAPGLUS). Hence the highlighting in the meeting of some of the priority campaigning endeavours of our Afrikan Heritage Community for National Self-Determination (AHC-NSD) in Britain such as the urgent need to give stronger internationalist solidarity push to the STOP THE MAANGAMIZI: We Charge Genocide/Ecocide Campaign and its accompanying Petition as an imperative for enhancing the massive glocal building of the International Social Movement for Afrikan Reparations (ISMAR) as one of the most dynamic galvanizing columns of the Peoples’ Reparations International Movement (PRIM). Activists of the GAPP-UK in the meeting also impressed upon the Delegation our request through the EFFISAC to the EFF Leadership to officially mandate Brother-Fighter Floyd Nyiko Shivambu to serve as the ISMAR/PRIM Chief Liaison Facilitator in the Pan-Afrikan Parliament and also to help us promote in and beyond the PAP our demand and glocal lobbying for a Pan-Afrikan Reparatory Justice Law of Holistic Rematriation/Repatriation (PARJLOHRR).

GAPP in Solidarity at the International Climate March

As members of the Wretched of the Earth Global Frontline Bloc, the Global Afrikan People’s Parliament delivered a strong message of ‘We Charge Genocide and Ecocide’ to the British State and the Internationally state sanctioned/state led criminality that continues to rape and plunder planet earth.

Banners Pic at climate march 2The International #ClimateMarch held on 29th November 2015 in London and over 170 countries worldwide, spoke in one voice against the many faces of corporate and state abetted evils that continue to risk the future of flora, fauna and humanity.  The Wretched of the Earth Frontline Bloc took pole position on the march given the impact of climate change impacting most critically on the Black and Brown people of the Global South.  Pictured here also is the banner of the Emancipation Day Afrikan Reparation March Committee which demands a stop to our Maangamizi – the Afrikan hellacaust and its current manifestations.  Please join them on August 1st for the Annual march for Reparatory Justice from Windrush Sq to Parliament where the Stop the Maangamizi petition will be delivered to Downing St.

Of the #ClimateMarch one participant reflected:

Tillah Willah said: “I went to the Climate March in London -a 50,000 strong triumph – so the organisers say.
It was cold literally and otherwise and I walked through the march and I walked through the march feeling like an outsider until I got to the front where the Wretched of the Earth bloc were marching.
It was good to walk with the Global Pan Afrikan Peoples Parliament, it was good to hear Ken Saro Wiwa‘s name being called, it was good to meet with the young members of Black Dissidents it was good to meet Indigenous people from the South Pacific, Peru, Northern Scandinavia…. she also went on to say….”We are watching you, governments of the Caribbean, Africa and Asia who are still convinced that industrialisation is the only way forward, yes you bauxite mining in Jamaica, yes you T&T with your obscene levels of CO2 production per capita, yes you Nigeria with your unchecked oil pollution, yes you India trying to steal land from the Adivasis.To the governments of the Caribbean, Africa and Asia who are aiding and abetting corporate colonialism, we are watching you and promise that our communities are finding each other, we are linking our struggles and we are joining voices and forces for justice.” Well said! Tillah Willah! ‪#‎ClimateMarch‬

 

On sacrifice of the people…

A Revolutionary Theory is a Necessity

amilcar-cabral1

A Revolutionary Theory is a Necessity

“It is with the intention of making a contribution, however modest, to this debate that we present here our opinion of the foundations and objectives of national liberation in relation to the social structure. This opinion is the result of our own experiences of the struggle and of a critical appreciation of the experiences of others. To those who see in it a theoretical character, we would recall that every practice produces a theory, and that if it is true that a revolution can fail even though it be based on perfectly conceived theories, nobody has yet made a successful revolution without a revolutionary theory.”

– Amilcar Cabral, The Weapon of Theory
