African Liberation Day Europe region

Sunday 29th May

African Liberation Day led by the African People’s Socialist Party has the aim of forwarding the revolution that will free African people.


African Liberation Day, as an institution within the African Liberation movement, began in 1958 at the founding when different African states, activists, and leaders met in Ghana to discuss the unification of Africa. The charge was led by Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of independent Ghana.

The African People’s Socialist Party has the aim of forwarding the revolution that will free African people worldwide. African Internationalism, our political theory, provides the basis for the conditions lived by black people the world over. It shows that colonialism is still a reality in the lives of African people, as we do not have political and economic state power anywhere on the planet. African Liberation Day holds up the vision of Nkrumah and Garvey and forwards the march to revolution by introducing to our oppressed communities vehicles that we have created for African people to participate in our liberation.

African Liberation Day exposed U.S. led imperialism, colonialism and neo-colonialism as enemies of Africa and African people and barriers to black freedom. For decades, imperialists have attempted to distance African Liberation Day (and the African Revolution in general) from the struggle for a socialist, united Africa led by the African working class. The freedom of Africa and African people demands revolutionary action through revolutionary organization.
