Forum: Africa Rising Up!

  • 1418 North Claiborne Avenue New Orleans, LA, 70116 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Hosted by: New Orleans Workers Group

From Algeria to Zimbabwe. From Sudan to South Africa. The oppressed and exploited workers and peasants on the African continent are rising up, challenging the oppressive neo-colonial rulers who have embraced the continued rape and pillage of the African continent by the imperialist ruling circles. The local quislings have bowed to the austerity repayment plans demanded by the IMF and international bankers. They have driven the African peoples to the brink of starvation as the extraction of the mineral wealth of Africa continues to flow the western imperialist and now Chinese loan sharks.

Sharp class struggles against the local billionaire ruling class have sharpened throughout the African continent. The oppressed Africana masses are organizing and resisting. Even in the face of deadly repression by the puppet governments.

We in the NOWG are carefully watching these revolutionary developments. We are especially excited by news from South Africa where revolutionary workers and peasants have founded the Socialist Revolutionary Party of South Africa. They are challenging the compromised leadership of the ANC which has totally embraced continued white supremacist capitalist rule in South Africa.

The NOWG is hosting a forum on the revolutionary developments on the African continent and our responsibility to give full support for the African Liberation to establish the revolutionary rule of the workers and peasants throughout Africa.

End Unfair Gerrymandering

  • 500 Poydras Street New Orleans, LA, 70113 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This upcoming 2019 election is EVERYTHING and will decide what Louisiana will look like for the next 11 years, so Make It Fair has committed to hold a rally every Wednesday from Noon to 1 PM at 500 Poydras (in front of the Fed Courthouse where John Neely Kennedy has his New Orleans office) until the election to shine a spotlight on its importance.

Have you looked at our Federal Congressional Districts? They are embarrassingly drawn to specifically control the black vote and limit the Democratic vote in our State. Whoever is elected in our upcoming 2019 State races will redraw those lines after the 2020 census and so it's imperative we elect only those who will commit to drawing districts which truly represent our state. Louisiana has beautiful diversity and the 36% non-white, non-GOP vote has been drawn into oblivion.

Currently Louisiana falls at or near the bottom of every quality of life index and we've currently seen some progress up with our new Governor. Let's continue this trend by getting the word out about the importance of the 2019 elections.

Join us! The bigger the crowd, the more attention we'll receive. The more attention we receive, the more awareness we create!
