This is Comrade Pitt, the Minister of Labor for the Revolutionary Intercommunal Black Panther Party, so this is an essay by a fellow comrade Kevin Rashid Johnson titled “Join the PSM, the Panther Solidarity Movement.”
So what is the Panther Solidarity Movement? The Panther Solidarity MOvement is a continuation of the original Rainbow Coalition started APril 4, 1969 by chairman Fred Hampton of the Chicago chapter of the Black Panther Party. Many efforts have been made to form Rainbow Coalitions, most often as reformant non-revolutionary formations.
Chairman Fred’s was the first and most revolutionary. It brought the BPP together with many preexisting groups that were organized around nationalities including the Young Lords (Puerto Ricans), Brown Berets (Chicano), American Indian Movements (First Nation), Young Patriots Organizations and Student for a Democratic Society (white), and so many others.
This provided a structure under which many races could be united and organized in a structured way to build community-based power against a common enemy: capitalist imperialism. The PSM aims to revive this coalition with a new generation against the same enemy. Any preexisting community-based group, organization, or association may join the PSM so long as they agree to embrace the RIBPP, or Revolutionary Intercommunal Black Panther Party, Ten Point Program and prioritize serving and uplifting the oppressed communities.
The aim is to combine support of the Ten Point Program with other views and to root our movement in oppressed communities. The PSM is an umbrella term that describes the entire Panther movement, which includes the RIBPP, PSO, Panther Solidarity Organization, and allied mass organizations. PSM embraces diversity in ideological, political, cultural, and spiritual tendencies and beliefs. All that is required is unity and caring out and coordinating programs that address the needs of the people based on the community demands of the Ten Point Program.
Beyond this programmatic unity, PSM members don’t have to agree on anything really except basic rules that will ensure democratic decision-making and the safety and security of members. The movement itself is informed through which the people can express their opinions and ideas and unite everyone who we can around serving hte people and the communities they live.
The role of the RIBPP is to give political guidance to the movement under the strategy of Pantherism which is based on revolutionary intercommunalism. Revolutionary Intercommunal Black Panther Party, we’re not sponsoring any group, organization, or association that is not democratic or that attempts to force its views upon others, but as long as it supports the Ten Point Program, the group may be accepted as an independent faction in the PSM.
Any groups, organizations, or associations interested in joining PSM may contact the RIBPP general secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org or get in contact with any RIBPP member.
Um, my name is comrade Pitt, Peter Kamal Mukuria. I am the Minister of Labor for the Revolutionary Intercommunal Black Panther Party. Uh, thank you for your time and have a great one.
