All-African Peoples Revolutionary Party

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party (A-APRP) is a socialist group founded by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. His goal in founding this party was to create and manage the political economic conditions necessary to the emergence of an All-African People’s Revolutionary Army that would lead the military struggle against settler colonialism, Zionism, neo-colonialism, imperialism and all other forms of capitalist oppression and exploitation. cite web|url=http://members.aol.com/aaprp/about.html|title="The A-APRP memorial page"|]

The A-APRP has branches in several countries and several US states. Kwame Toure (Stokely Carmichael) was one of the party's leaders from the 1970s until his death. cite web|url=http://socialjustice.ccnmtl.columbia.edu/index.php/All-African_People's_Revolutionary_Party

Ideas

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party promotes Pan-Africanism in the form of the total liberation and unification of Africa under scientific socialism. Scientific socialism is defined as a new social synthesis in which an advanced technical society is realized without the staggering social malefactions and deep schisms of capitalist industrial society. cite web|url=http://members.aol.com/aaprp/about.html|title="The A-APRP memorial page"|]

In support of this overall position, the A-APRP believes that African Americans have been kept ignorant purposely because capitalist and imperialist wanted Africa to look like a savage nation, in an attempt to keep Africans divided, disorganized, confused and live under stifling conditions, so they can stop their progress towards total freedom. The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party holds the United States and Israel accountable for the misery and suffering they cause for people around the world, and additionally blames the United States for allowing slavery and allowing African Americans to be treated brutally.

The A-APRP believe the UN is only interested in exploiting Africa and its inhabitants, and should be banished from the continent.

They uphold that nationalist African leaders like Robert Mugabe should be "supported as much as possible." The Party also venerates anti-imperialist leaders such as Fidel Castro, Ho Chi Minh, and Yasser Arafat.

Goals

The All-African People’s Revolutionary Party aims to form a United Socialist African government. The party believes Africa must first be united before they can accelerate economically and technologically. According to the party, such maximum development would guarantee a balanced use of the material resources and human potential of Africa along the lines of an integrated economy, and within corresponding divisions of production, eliminating all unnecessary forms of competition, economic hostility and replication and resulting in true freedom.

The Party also supports reparations to African-Americans who suffer from the residual effects of slavery.
