International Section Introduction Nyeusi Jami

“The only way we’ll get freedom for ourselves is to identify ourselves with every oppressed people in the world. We are blood brothers to the people of Brazil, Venezuela, Haiti, Cuba -- yes Cuba too.” - Malcolm X The Malcolm X Grassroots Movement is a Pan-Africanist and Internationalist organization. We believe that the fate of all Black people, and all poor people, wherever we are in the world, is interconnected. Our struggle against oppression here in the United States is the same struggle as the people of the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Australia. This is so because we all have the same opponent. The global capitalist system can only survive through the exploitation of the labor and resources of the masses. The prosperity of North America and Western Europe literally cannot exist without the natural resources of Haiti and Brazil and the Congo and pretty much every place in the world where the majority of people look like us. And you can’t take a people’s natural resources without brutally and violently dominating them through some form of colonization. Whenever any movement in the world strikes back at the global capitalist system and has some success, it makes the entire system a little bit weaker and brings all of us one step closer to freedom. So we feel that it is necessary for BAMN to document the liberation struggles of our comrades all over the world. It is necessary for us to recognize that we are part of a global struggle for freedom.
