AFRICAN REVOLUTIONARY MOVEMENT STATEMENT ON MARTYRDOM OF BROTHER MALCOLM LATEEF SHABAZZ

[Via email to Sons of Malcolm from brother Gerald Perreira]

May 13, 2013

Africans all over the world mourn the death of Al Hajj Malcolm Al Shabazz, grandson of the great African revolutionary, Al Hajj Malik Al Shabazz (Malcolm X).

ARM is in no doubt that this young African freedom fighter, who was using his legacy to inspire a whole new generation, was targeted for assassination.

Anyone familiar with the aims and objectives of COINTELPRO can immediately read the signs. He wasunder constant surveillance as a result of his activism at home and abroad and the circumstances surrounding his death reeks of a set up. The Empire is in deep crisis and knows that the final blow will come from the mounting internal resistance to its reign of terror. Young Malcolm’s assassination comes at a time when the Empire’s state terrorist apparatus is intensifying its harassment of militant African organizations and leaders, and has recently placed Assata Shakur at the top of its most wanted terrorist list.

We send our deepest sympathy to the Shabazz family. As revolutionaries we know only too well the toll that our struggle takes on our families and the sacrifices they must make. The Shabazz family has made the ultimate sacrifice too many times, and it is with deep appreciation and respect that people all over the world are praying for and with them at this time.

The corporate media’s shameless attempts to discredit this young warrior, has fallen largely on deaf ears, since it is clear to all that these agencies of mass deception are simply in the service of Empire.

There is hardly an African family in the Diaspora whose young sons have not had issues with ‘the law’. As many African scholars have noted, it is in fact ‘the law’that has issues with our youth who are targeted globally. Truth be told, no youth on this earth has suffered more than African youth. No amount of slandering or character assassination by a discredited corporate media can detract from the stature of this young son of Africa who is mourned worldwide.

May Allah welcome him as a martyr, who died like his grandfather, in the service of his people.

In unity and struggle,
