ACIS-M Welcomes President Brahim Ghali of SADR & Vice President Aristobulo Isturiz to Nigeria!
The Amilcar Cabral Ideological School (ACIS-M) Movement welcomes in solidarity to Nigeria – President Brahim Ghali of the Sahrawi Democratic Republic (SADR) and the Vice President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
The significance of the presence of the leaders of Western Sahara and Venezuela at the Democracy Day observed at the highest of Government in Nigeria on June 12, 2019 is an indication that much is expected from the Nigeria Government and the Nigerian working people in terms of solidarity and total support for the actualization of the self-determination and independence of the Sahrawi as the last colony in Africa; and as well as for the defence of the sovereignty of Venezuela.
The Nigeria Government has a duty to rally all the African countries to employ all legal, diplomatic, economic, political and sociocultural means to ensure the total independence of Western Sahara.
We insist on our demands that:
- The UN should conduct a Referendum on the Self-determination in Western Sahara.
- Morocco and the European Union must stop the plundering and exploitation of Sahrawi resources.
- Human rights’ violations being daily perpetrated by the Morocco forces with the collaboration of imperialist forces must stop.
- Morocco should release all political prisoners immediately.
ACIS-M identifies and salutes the landmark victory recorded on April 29, 2019 by the heroic people of Venezuela under the leadership of the Bolivarian revolution started by Companero Hugo Chávez and being continued by President Nicholas Maduro over the US imperialist aggression and Venezuelan reactionary forces. This victory of the Bolivarian revolution in Venezuela in defence of the ideas of socialism is significant as it coinciding with the 58th Anniversary of the victorious Cuban revolution over the US imperialist trained and equipped mercenaries of the Bay of Pig invasion on April 19, 1961.
US MUST HANDS OFF VENEZUELA! Western Sahara Must Be FREE!!
THE HUGO CHAVEZ’S EXAMPLE THAT PROMPTED THE US AGGRESSION AGAINST THE VENEZUELAN PEOPLE! AND WHAT CABRAL SAYS ON CONTROL OF THE NATIONAL PRODUCTIVE FORCES!
When President Hugo Chávez in the 2000s, in line with the socialist principles of the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela took the necessary measures to control and democratise the Venezuelan economy, and free it from the domineering hold of foreign oil companies operating in Venezuela, there were very strong reactions from the imperialist oil cartels led by the United States of America.
The Chavez’s example inspired many other oil-producing countries in the region to demand renegotiations of agreements they had entered into in the past with the imperialist cartels and which had earned them low prices at the expense of stupendous profits to the big oil companies.
And Nigeria was a major beneficiary of the oil wind-fall because the Organisation of Oil Producing Countries (OPEC) courtesy of the Chavez’s example was then in a position to control and fixed prices of sales of crude oil. That was the greatest sin of Chavez and the US’ criminal resolve to manipulate so-called international support for freezing Venezuelan reserves in foreign banks. It is instructive to know that US harbours several of the dominant oil cartels.
The position taken by the Bolivarian Revolution n Venezuela is consistent with Cabral’s position on national liberation. In this instance, the defence of the sovereignty of the Venezuelans against US aggression and economic destablisations.
“Since imperialism usurps the historical development of the people through violence, national liberation has to grant the right of the people to have their own history. Any liberation movement that doesn’t consider this is certainly not struggling for national liberation because the principal aspect of national liberation is the struggle against neocolonialism. If this involves freeing of productive forces, then national liberation necessarily corresponds to a revolution and ‘national liberation struggle is a revolution”
WHAT WE (in ACIS) MEAN BY THE PEOPLE! Paraphrasing FIDEL CASTRO &
FELA ANIKULAPO KUTI as the MIRROR:
When we speak of the PEOPLE we are not talking about those who live in comfort or those who profit from the looting of our society, who glorify the class of looters, who welcome and obey any repressive regime and impunity in government, and those who prostrate before the rulers of the moment because of selfish gains.
When we speak of the PEOPLE we are not talking about those who will say “we no wan die, we no wan wound, we no wan quench, we no wan go; I get one child, Mama dey for house, Papa dey for house,I wan build house, I don build house; We no wan quench, I wan enjoy, We no wan go, So policeman go slap your face, you no go talk; Army man go whip your yansh, u go dey look like donkey! Dem leave Sorrow, Tears and Blood”.
When we speak of STRUGGLE and we mention the PEOPLE we mean the working people and the oppressed masses, those to whom everyone makes promises and who are deceived by all.
We mean the PEOPLE who want a better, more dignified and humane society; who are moved by profound commitment to justice, because they have suffered injustice, humiliation and mockery from every regimes – military & civilian.
We mean the PEOPLE who long for true and upright changes in all aspects of their life; PEOPLE who, to attain their FREEDOM, they believe in themselves and are ready to give even the very last breadth they have to bring about the desired humane society”.
