Make It Plain: The Death of Muammar Gaddafi - What significant is there to the Pan-African Liberation Movement?

The Death of Muammar Gaddafi - What significant is there to the Pan-African Liberation Movement?
By Abdul Jabbar Caliph, Chief Editor
On October 20, 2011 Muammar Gaddafi was brutally murdered by pro-capitalist insurgent members in an effort to usher in new era oppression; exploitation; rape and pillage within the colonialist boarders of Libya for African people! This is a fact that we in the Pan-African International community full understand, for we are aware of the implications of the murder of Gaddafi and what it means to the African Liberation Movement and it forces! As Revolutionary soldiers of the movement we understand that it is our task to help you to understand what this means to the movement!

Libya is a country that approximately made up of 679,362 sq. miles. It is located in the northern part of Africa that is heavily populated by Arab speaking people. Its economy is heavily depending upon the production of petroleum (oil) and petroleum based goods which only employs a small percentage of it people. Libya also products a small amount of gypsum, iron ore, lime, and natural gas along with sulfur. The rest of this country economy is based on service industries, construction and agriculture goods. Currently Africa is responsible for 25% of the world’s oil export.   

Into his death Muammar Muhammad al-Gaddafi had been the head of state since September 1969, 42 years, due to a successful revolution that overthrew the King and allowed the Revolutionary Command Council (RCC) to seize and consolidate its power base. Immediately upon becoming the head of State he begin to preach an ideology, Pan-Arabism, that was detrimental to Africa and her people in an effort  to gain unity among various Arab States. They out rightly reject any type of unity with him regardless of the fact that he was an Arab and a Muslim. 

Throughout the Seventies and Eighties Gaddafi begin supporting a number of liberation movements throughout the world, particularly the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), Chad, Morocco, Uganda and Western Sahara region of Africa. This had led to many so called leaders publically coming out against him. Because of his stance against the imperialist aggression shown towards people of color he had a fall out in 1986 with the United States of America, this result in breaking off all relationships with Libya and accused Libya of supporting international terrorism.  

This resulted in a bitter war between these two nations. In March of 1986, the government of Libya opened fire on US military aircraft over the Gulf of Sidra, a clear violation of Libya’s airspace. This resulted in the United States launching a vicious bombing campaign against Libya. The second part of this war erupted in 1989 when two United States of America military aircraft shot down two Libyan military aircraft flying over the Mediterranean Sea.

Because of this bitter antagonism between these two nations and a drop in Libya oil price Gaddafi was forced to improve relationships with other nations and establish a more promenade role inside of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) now called the African Unity (AU). A group of weak, spineless neo-colonialist bootlicking Negros, they don’t even deserve to be called Africans. Gaddafi sought leadership inside of this organization by daring to offer them the chance for serious change in the affairs of Africa.

The death of Gaddafi exposed some serious weakness and contradictions in the African Liberation Movement and in the socialist movement as it exist under its’ current backward leadership. First, no African country or socialist country came to the aid of Gaddafi, instead they stood by and watched his cold bloody murder and that of thousands of Africans living and working inside of Libya. Second, the African Union never ones opposed the bombing of Libya (only in lip service) and the removal of Gaddafi if they did they would have never recognized the current regime as representatives of Libya, some people will do anything for money. Third, the death of Gaddafi ushered in a new era of capitalism and neo-colonialism that is a planned attack against the masses of African people not only in Libya but also throughout Africa itself. Finally, the plans of imperialist conquest have been espoused for all to see through the use of AFRICOM, an imperialist counter-revolutionary army that is involved in military campaigns in Southern Sudan; Somalia; the Congo and Uganda for the control of the natural resources in these countries.  

As a Pan-African Internationalist is my duty to point out to you that Neo-colonialism poses a serious threat to the security Africa for it defines its relationship through its ties to Imperialism. It is this relationship that is responsible for the current backwards development inside of many African nations.  Neo-colonialism is responsible for the continued rape and pillage of the natural resources of Africa and the oppression and exploitation of many Africans because of the lack of development of an infrastructure that will support the positive development of any Pan-African institution that will push forth the liberation and freedom of African people. 

Comrades let us remember the words of Kwame Nkrumah when he pointed out the following facts about neo-colonialism “Neo-colonialism is the worst form of imperialism. For those who practice it, it means power without responsibility, and for those who suffer from it, it means exploitation without redress.” Neo-colonialism must be crushed and overthrown for it is just a cancer and must be surgical removed.  
 Before his untimely death Gaddafi purposed such revolutionary changes as a central African Monterey Banking system that would have freed African people of the parasitic relationship that currently exist between Africa and the International Monterey Fund (IMF) which charges Africa an enormous price for development loans of the resources that she already owns and of which the global economy is based upon and the formation of a United States of Africa as purposed by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah a revolutionary giant that fought for the freedom and unification of Africa. 
Comrades if Africa is to truly know any freedom and independence then she must complete the revolutionary phase of the sixties. She must begin so by demanding the immediate removal of AFRICOM from the shores of Africa because of her imperialist wars of aggression, along with the demand for the immediate dismissal of the neo-colonialist agency known as the OAU/AU for its ineffectiveness and betrayal of the revolutionary principals put forth by the African working class. Immediately after issuing these two demands we must begin the immediate mobilization for the establishment of the Republic of Africa under the leadership of the African working class this would allow for the removal of the artificial colonialist boarders that currently exist in Africa today. 

Comrades let us be about the work, the work of gaining genuine independences and freedom for all African people particularly the African working class who are suffering the most. Let us be about the work of making revolution; progress and establishing a Republic of Africa under the leadership of the African working class, the only class that loves Africa and is fit for leadership! It is this class that will led Africa and her people into a new glorious future ending the parasitic relationship that has currently existed for over five hundred years.
