Like many around the world, the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement (MXGM) and New Afrikan People’s Organization (NAPO) mourn the tragic loss of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Frias. In an age defined by imperialist globalization, neo-liberal regression, and ecological collapse, revolutionary leadership has been at a premium.
President Chavez stood as a defiant, yet visionary tower of revolutionary leadership in this challenging era. His courage, passion, and vision gave expression to the social movements of Venezuela within the vehicle of the Bolivarian national-state, and inspired millions throughout Latin America and the world to re-envision socialism and the liberation of humanity.
In the challenging days ahead President Chavez’s leadership and contributions will sorely be missed. Even now, the enemies of the Bolivarian revolution, both foreign and domestic, are mustering their forces in the effort to overturn the gains of the revolution. Progressive forces throughout the world must remain vigilant over the next days, months, and years to ensure that imperialism does not strangle the Bolivarian revolution and regain a foothold in Venezuela. We must stand at the ready and be prepared to fight against the aggressions of the US government, NATO, and local and regional reactionary forces.
However, despite the challenges being directed at the Bolivarian revolution by the enemies of humanity, we rest assured knowing that the legacy of President Chavez will endure as his fighting spirit was part and parcel of the enduring will of the Venezuelan people and their ongoing quest for social revolution and human development that cannot and will not be extinguished.
The Bolivarian revolution will continue to advance, as the Venezuelan masses will continue to march forward in the memory of President Hugo Chavez.
Long Live Hugo Chavez!
Long Live the Bolivarian revolution!
In Unity, Struggle, and Love

Anonymous said: What's wrong with cis men playing trans women in film and TV?
Cis men aren’t trans women, and trans women aren’t cis men playing dress-up-make-believe.
Trans women are women with real narratives and voices that should be prioritized, not to mention they have actual experience with being trans.
Cis men have enough media representation.
the term “people of color” in the american context is about a common struggle of those colonized by white imperialism, in and out of u.s. borders.
but when it becomes a way for non Black POC to claim the struggles specific to Black folks it is counter productive! we gotta remember theres a difference between solidarity and co-option !
Hey y’all, We are Finding Resources and Empowerment through Education (F.R.E.E.) de Humboldt State University and we strives to provide leadership by encouraging advocacy, values, customs that will lead to the continued recruitment, retention and graduation of low-income students. We do…
"From March 16th-23rd, 9 members of F.R.E.E. will spend spring break making a trip to the US/Mexico border in Arizona to volunteer for No More Deaths Phoenix, an organization that provides humanitarian aid (food, water, medicine) to migrants attempting to cross the border.
We recognize the role of inhumane US immigration policies and trade policies in this ongoing human rights crisis, and that the survival of migrants can be an important way of resisting this.
HOWEVER, the main thing holding us back is funding. No More Deaths estimates that we will need $2575 (not including car rental) just to do this trip. We are camping outside in the desert, so this money will only be for gas, food, and the supplies we are leaving out.
PLEASE donate anything you can to our No More Deaths fund, any small amount will help. You can donate online through our Gofundme web page, or you can come by the F.R.E.E. table at the quad and donate in person!”

It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is run by an unusual teacher.
Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital.
The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of many children playing at the site instead of attending school.
When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared.
Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.
Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds.
There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble.
Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.
Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them.
One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.
