Self-Determination Is The Highest Expression Of Democracy


About the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement

Chairman at the founding convention for the People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement (PDUM), the predecessor of NPDUM/InPDUM, Oakland, CA. (ca. late 1980s.)

Founded in 1991 by the African People’s Socialist Party, InPDUM is the leading organization in the struggle for Bread, Peace and Black Power in the 21st Century.

Since its creation, InPDUM has fought courageously for the African community. We have fought for community control of education while protesting the budget cuts and school closures in our communities.

We have fought for justice for African victims of police brutality such as Sean Bell, Oscar Grant and Oury Jalloh who was burned to death in a police precinct in Germany. We have defended the right for African people to resist colonial oppression, as we did when Lovelle Mixon killed four cops in Oakland, CA in 2009.

It was InPDUM who led the defense of the heroic African youth in London, UK after they set the city ablaze in response to the police murder of Mark Duggan there.

InPDUM led the struggle for justice for Dominique Battle, Laniyah Miller and Ashaunti Butler- three African children murdered by the Pinellas County Police Department in St. Petersburg, Florida. In 2020, InPDUM responded to the brutal police killing of George Floyd with organization- building a presence in Minneapolis, Minnesota and after the 3rd degree murder conviction of killer cop Derek Chauvin the following year, we continued to organize in Minneapolis. We understood that true “justice" for George Floyd is not a conviction of one cop. True justice is power in the hands of the African community to make it so that these cops can’t even touch us.

Through our KEEP28 and No Way to the L.R.A. (Land Reutilization Act) campaigns, we fought against the vicious gentrification of the African community at the hands of parasitic land developers and the crooked politicians who work alongside them.

Now located in three continents around the world, INPDUM has always demanded reparations, state power and self government for African people worldwide!  InPDUM knows that the politicians in city hall and the white house will never fight for Black Power to the African community. InPDUM knows that it takes revolutionary organization to protect and defend our own, wherever we may be, whoever we may be.
