Our historic task is to organize black dual and contending power for self-determination
For us, our historic task is to organize black dual and contending power for self-determination that is rooted in the black working class –- the majority of our people –- as part of the effort to build a broader multi-national, multi-racial, anti-oppression radical social bloc to transform the social and productive relations in this country. In other words, our responsibility is to make revolution.
That is the baseline for all strategic considerations regarding allies, objective social forces internationally, and determining whom our friends and enemies might be.
We stand in solidarity with all those who stand with us, who respect our autonomous processes, and who are committed to authentic revolutionary de-colonialization and building a socialist future. But we will fight all who attempt to erase us, to silence our voices, and collaborate consciously or unconsciously with the white supremacist, patriarchal, colonial/capitalist order.
