(on this King Weekend January 18-21, 2013)
By January 13, 2013, after being ‘petitioned’ by Africans to save Mali from total conquest by Al Qaeda forces, the French government underwent a massive military strike operation to stop Al Qaeda’s advance across Mali and West Africa. The French/NATO ability to quickly slow Al Qaeda is due to their high tech combat aircraft and highly trained imperialist battle tested ground forces from wars across the world, such as in Libya.
The NATO troops now in Mali and other parts of Africa are involved in a worldwide and extended war zone from Asia to Africa. To most experts, unlike other nations under EU/NATO and Al Qaeda attacks, Africa is the most vulnerable and is the ultimate frontier for resources to continue powering white supremacy in the world. A current crop of Africa’s corrupt, cowardly and compliant leaders are working against Africa’s self-interests and so have almost sealed the deal for Africa’s conquest by foreigners.
Family, we are witnessing an unprecedented serial destruction of Africa with the recent attacks and destruction starting with Ivory Coast (2010), Libya (2011), and Mali (2012). Other African nations are already under siege with the ‘Great’ Scramble for the re-colonization of Africa for resources by very powerful but economically desperate nations in the world.
The stage was set in the 1960’s with the planned neutralization of Pan African leaders across the African world. The ‘serial attacks’ on Africa are all part of this renewed agenda for the ‘final solution’ for African people by a unified Europe with some Arab states, to ensure that white power “will never set” on the EU/USA empire. Consequently, the conquest of Africa is critical for white survival.
The natural response by all conscious African people affected by this war on Africa as before is to reflect on Dr. M.L. King’s question of “Where do we go from here?” What actions we must now muster from this deep grave and grievous hole we have dug for ourselves and generations to come? For those who are Pan Africanists, the solution is very simple – follow the ancestral instructions from Dr. John H. Clarke to “fiercely” promote “Pan Africanism or Perish”. A failed Africa means Black global enslavement. Now what will you do now to save ourselves?
The Pan African related bodies of the ECOWAS and the AU have only organized a small force of over 3,000 troops from West Africa to assist in Mali but have been waiting for months to get directions and military support from the United Nations Security Council. Most of these Security Council members have maintained modern slavery (USA) and (neo) colonial domination over different parts of Africa and African people. With a feeble Africa, nations like China have to walk softly with the EU/USA for a partnership to protect its huge investment stakes in Africa.
A CORE PAN AFRICAN RESPONSE ON KING WEEKEND IS FOR:
1. Proactive actions to inform, educate and mobilize our people, and the world against the dire situations affecting Africa and African people for Africa’s resources, similar to the era of slavery and colonialism;
2. Consultations and community discussions for strategic formulations of short and long term priority actions at the local and global levels to stop the major assaults on Africa and African people; and
3. Coordinated and unified work to implement the Garvey-Nkrumah Plan for an immediate union government of Africa, for the protection and promotion of African people in the world.
Africans, let’s redouble our efforts to stop this betrayal of our great ancestral legacy through actions!
