Despite its lack of official recognition as colonizer in the public consciousness, the U.S. is very adept at exploiting the continent while framing its actions as benevolent. We must expose the true purpose and impact of U.S. military involvement on the continent. The United States uses AFRICOM to maintain their control of the continent and support the operations of multinational corporations that plunder the land, labor, and natural resources of the African continent. All of this is made possible by the manipulation of corrupt African political leaders.
Our struggle is against those who want to use the world’s land, labor, technology, natural resources, and markets for a capital accumulation process that enriches a few as opposed to those who want to use those things for the collective betterment and the well-being of the many.
