Black Alliance for Peace: „The Democratic Party wants war with Russia, the Trump administration wants war with China, so it’s up to the people to demand and struggle for peace against both pro-imperialist war parties.“
Please welcome a new BAP member organization, Horn of Africa PALS, and check out and circulate their excellent conversation: African Problems, African Solutions: A Conversation on Policing in African States.
Our Shut Down AFRICOM work is developing a focus on policing in Africa because the U.S. and other colonial states are actively training the frontline repressive forces called the police in a number of their vassal states on the continent. This conversation makes that connection and the connection with the role of the police as a neocolonial force in the U.S., especially in those urban areas under the political control of the Black petit-bourgeois Administrative/Managerial class where most of the killings and jailing of our folks takes place.
The analysis here provides a much needed corrective to the liberal and idealistic notion that abstracts the police from their role as the frontline defender of class power in the colonial/capitalist state.
