Economic basis for invasion
Africa is facing a criminal imperialist invasion of
Libya, led by the foremost neo colonialist in Africa, the United States,
and organized under the US Africa Command (Africom) and a 28 European
nation military alliance, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization
This invasion is a desperate attempt to slow down the inevitable and
rapidly approaching collapse of the American economy with its
increasingly frequent economic crisis, recessions, and uncontrollable
debt of $14.3 trillion dollars; which they can never pay. This eminent
collapse can be seen when we contrast the 1950’s and the anti communist
House Committee on Un-American Activities mandated under Public Law 601
during the McCarthy era and “Red Scare,” in which America arrested and
destroyed its own settler colonial citizens for being labeled communist
affiliated and attempted to militarily overthrow foreign governments
like the US embargoe of China in 1950 under the Trading with the Enemy
These policies contrast sharply from today in 2011, with America’s
largest creditor being the Communist Party of China, which America owes
nearly two trillion dollars (US Department of Treasury, 2011) and seeks
to borrow more money and go into further debt; with China dominating
the balance of trade between the two countries leading with $182.965
billion to America’s $49.553 billion from January to June of 2011 (US
Census Bureau, Foreign Trade).
According to the World Fact Book, 28 NATO countries owe foreign debts
of a massive $48.74 trillion dollars, while 53 African Union Countries
owe merely $338 billion dollars (World Development Indicators, World
From this we can discover the economic motive of NATO is to break
through Libyan security and capture its massive oil resources to fuel
its invasion of Africa in order to accelerate the robbery and
exploitation of Africa by military means to alleviate their overwhelming
debt, while crushing Libya’s major moves for African economic
America has calculated this as the only way to forestall China’s
influence and economic domination over them, block Chinese competition
in Africa for resources, and to inject wealth into their economy which
is like murdering an innocent healthy person to take their blood and
inject it into a dying corpse. This is the new phase of
Action with thought
Africans worldwide must now mobilize and organize to confront and
defeat America’s invasion of Libya at this historic point in history to
accelerate Africa’s liberation, economic independence, and unity.
We are calling on all Africans in every country in Africa and
throughout the African world to confront American imperialism with
demonstrations and “positive action” at every U.S. embassy in the world
as a demonstration of power and unity on the 102nd birthday of Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, the greatest African of the 20th century; the day is 21st September 2011.
Osagyefo spent time in England and discovered its weak economy
following World War II, then planned a political strategy with an
economic offensive of boycotts, strikes, and demonstrations, “positive
action,” to cripple England and win independence for Ghana on 6th March 1957.
Today America’s economy is weak and in the spirit of Osagyefo Kwame
Nkrumah, we are calling on Africans to demonstrate, strike, and boycott,
on 21st September 2011, in solidarity with
Libya’s armed resistance, to win total independence for Africa. We are
also calling on the African Union to break all military pacts with NATO
countries. We are calling on all Africans to “confiscate all assets” of
NATO countries. We appeal to all the governments of the world that are
against US/NATO hegemony, murder and pillage, to heed to the demand of
the masses and apply economic sanctions on America and NATO countries to
put a stop their madness.
This can be done by in blocks like the African Union, Non Aligned
Movement, Group of 77, Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our
America, The Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and other regional
and international groupings. Power comes from the organized working
masses of the people and their labor, not the capitalist class and their
dependence on disorganizing and exploiting the working masses labor for
profit to maintain power.
Africa at a crossroad
Today Africa is at a crossroads facing, on the one hand, America’s
Africa Command and US/NATO military occupation to further entrench neo
colonialism. If successful, this will result in increased theft of
Africa’s resources by the European capitalist class, greater
exploitation of the African working masses, and the re-enforcement and
strengthening of white supremacy in Africa.
On the other hand, Africa faces the very real prospect of a military
victory in Libya, the acceleration of a United States of Africa, the
seizure of control over Africa’s resources and economy by the working
masses under socialism, and the emergence of the African personality on
the world stage.
Defend liberated zones
Libya is a “liberated zone” based on Kwame Nkrumah’s criteria from the zonal analysis in his book, “Handbook of Revolutionary Warfare.”
Libya therefore represents Africa’s future as a free and liberated
continent. Libya secured its independence in 1969 by mass, anti
imperialist armed struggle to bring a revolutionary and socialist
Jamahiriya ‘authority of the masses’ to power. The puppet neo colonial
monarch, King Idriss, was overthrown by force. Economic development,
education, health care, housing, infrastructure, and human development
were accelerated, with Libya having the highest living standard in
Libya is totally independent of foreign economic interest. It has an
independent ideology, outlined in the Green Book, and therefore the
Libyan masses and leadership think for themselves. Libya is leading the
movement to establish an African Continental Government, with
continental institutions like the African Monetary Fund, African Central
Bank to establish a common gold currency, African Investment Bank, and
African High Command.
These institutions are being established and fueled by Libyan oil
revenues to take economic control over Africa by Africans and to defeat
American neo colonialism; the last stage of imperialism, once and for
all. Therefore, it is the sacred responsibility of every African to
defend Libya to ensure a future of freedom and dignity for the
generations of Africa, yet to be born. Now is the time!
Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah succeeded in establishing a Pan Africanist and Socialist Republic of Ghana on 1st
July 1960 with an 88% vote in a plebiscite and then with an
unprecedented 99% vote in a referendum in 1964 (African Elections
Database), this mass revolutionary policy was consolidated one year
after declaring Ghana a Pan Africanist state with the declaration of the
Union of African States on 1st July 1961, with Ghana, Guinea, and Mali creating a nucleus for the formation of a continental government for Africa.
Today Qathafi is continuing the process by establishing socialism and
taking control of the Libya’s resources, expelling the US, UK, and
Italian military bases from Libya, supporting liberation movements in
Africa and throughout the world, ceding total power to the masses of the
people in 1977 by resigning as Libyan Head of State, and serving as the
driving force to change the Organization of African Unity to the
African Union as a step towards establishing an All African Union
Imperialist/reactionary alliance is neo-colonialism
The United States CIA, NATO, and internal reactionaries who overthrew
the “liberated zone” under Nkrumah’s government on 24 February 1966; “a
day of national crime, sin, shame and anarchy,” invaded the “liberated
zone” of Guinea in a failed attempt to overthrow Sekou Toure and Kwame
Nkrumah as co-Presidents in 1970, with NATO mercenaries.
These are essentially the same forces invading Libya today. The
difference is only tactical with the Libyan reactionaries mainly
consisting of Al Qaeda religious terrorists, the Guinean invasion being
spearheaded by Portuguese mercenary terrorists, while the anti Nkrumah
reactionaries were National Liberation Movement and Mate meho tribalist
terrorists; all teleguided by US imperialism.
This suggests any time an African country chooses Pan Africanism and
socialism and works for Africa’s unity and control of its economy as a
liberated zone, America will lead a subversive alliance, using violent
and illegal means to overthrow the government to impose neo colonialism.
They do this in order to maintain their criminal system of robbing
Africa at the maximum rate of exploitation; normally applying the method
of divide and conquer.
Lessons from the past
In the 1960’s America used the National Liberation Movement (NLM),
Mate meho tribalists (‘I’ve seperated myself’), and National Liberation
Council (NLC) reactionary movements to violently overthrow the great
Nkrumah after 15 years of resisting US backed subversion, assassination
attempts on President Nkrumah, and killing of innocent women and
children with bomb throwing at state events.
Guinea learned from the lesson of Ghana, trained the population
militarily, and fought off the NATO military invasion of 1970, plus
many imperialist intrigues to hold power as a liberated zone for 26
years; until the counter revolution after Sekou Toure’s death in 1984.
Today America uses the Sanussi monarchists, Al Qaeda terrorists
(Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi), CIA agents (Abdoulgassim Khalifa Hafter), and
corrupt government Officials (Mustafa Abdul Jalil) to launch a counter
revolution in Libya after being a liberated zone for 42 years. Since
African liberated zones are lasting longer and becoming stronger, these
reactionary elements cannot succeed.
Therefore, America had to bring a 28 European nation NATO armed
invasion to back up the local reactionaries with constant aerial
bombing. We conclude from these facts that African liberated zones have
advanced militarily to the point of being able to challenge American
imperialism and that neo colonialism is at its weakest point and it is
desperate to hold onto Africa’s resources to delay its inevitable
This becomes crystal clear when we witness a liberated zone of 6
million defeating the internal reactionaries and the US/NATO alliance of
over 28 European nations and militaries at the same time.
US war is against Africa
When Africans confront the enemy worldwide we will definitely turn
the invasion into a victory for Africa and a turning point for Africa’s
total liberation and Unity. It’s time to make the move!
The African Union has taken a position for the Libyan governments
right to repress the terrorist counter revoluionaries of the NTC and
against the NATO invasion of Libya in the African Union Peace and
Security Council, and as an entire AU continental body; which has
maintained its refusal to recognize the National Transitional Council as
the government of libya (despite NATO pressure).
The Chairman of the AU Peace and Security Council, Zimbabwe President
Mugabe has boldly called NATO a terrorist organization, likened to Al
Qaeda. Because of neo colonial influences on most of Africa’s
leadership, the US and NATO are disregarding the AU’s position with
contempt and utter disrespect.
This is why the African masses must confront US neo colonialism
without fear. We are calling for a “US/NATO Hands Off Libya” coalition
to be formed throughout Africa to defeat the US/NATO invasion of Libya
as a step toward uniting Africa with a continental government and a
socialist economic system to win economic independence; taking full
control over Africa’s resources! Revolutionary Pan Africanist Kwame
“Africa is our Mother! And if you throw bombs at our Mother,
as Africa is our Mother, we will throw bombs at you! ...When you bomb
Libya you’re not getting a limited war! This war, like Africa’s
children, whom you have scattered all over the world, knows no
boundaries! Anywhere there is an African, there will be war for Africa!”
The time is now!
We in the Pan African Improvement Organization are calling on all
Africans in Africa to use Positive Action and converge on all US
embassies with demonstrations. Africans in Europe use Positive Action
and converge on all US embassies with demonstrations. Africans in
Central, South America, and the Caribbean use Positive Action and
converge on all US embassies with demonstrations.
Africans in America use Positive Action and converge on government
buildings inside America with demonstrations. All allies of Africa, we
are asking you to use Positive Action and converge on all US embassies
with demonstrations, not only against the US/NATO bombing of Libya, but
also against the illegal US/EU sanctions on Zimbabwe, US illegal
military invasions of Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, and aggressions
towards Syria, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and countless other acts of
military aggression and crimes against sovereign nations and people of
the world. Let us together end US hegemony; BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!!!
Victory to Muammar Qathafi!
Victory to the Libyan Jamahiriya!
Forward to an African Union Government under Socialism!
Death to US/NATO hegemony!
Forward to the African Revolution!
