    Every institution in the United States is undergirded by white supremacy, and nowhere is this more profound than in the U.S. military. The same white supremacist ideas that are foundational in the U.S. military are present in the perpetuation of U.S. militarism in Africa. The struggle against AFRICOM is a struggle against militarism and white supremacy.

    The U.S. economy profits and thrives off of war and militarism. The U.S. arms industry is the largest arms industry on the planet, and whenever the U.S. enters into a treaty with a country in the Global South, that treaty is always used to enhance the sale of weaponry. This U.S. weapons industry is used to arm and finance repressive regimes across the world that are brutalizing Africans, just like the industry supplies weapons to police departments in the U.S. that kill and brutalize Black/African people through the 1033 program.

    AFRICOM coordinates the spread of U.S. militarism in Africa, and it received its share of the $740 billion Pentagon budget that was approved by the U.S. Senate recently. This money will be used to help the U.S. maintain its violent control of the continent and suppress the masses of African people. Africans on the continent and around the world must demand U.S. Out of Africa! Shut Down AFRICOM!
