Chairman Omali Yeshitela reports back from visit to Moscow, Russia
On Sunday, June 7, 2015, the African People's Socialist Party's (APSP) Department of Agitation and Propaganda hosted a special Sunday community meeting to welcome Chairman Omali Yeshitela back to the Party's headquarters in St. Petersburg, Florida, from his historic visit to Moscow, Russia.
Chairman Omali's trip was sponsored by the Anti-Globalization Movement of Russia. It was the first time that the APSP had traveled to that part of the world where V.I. Lenin and the Bolsheviks had struck a momentous blow to U.S. and worldwide imperialism and constructed a socialist economy and society that provided important political and material solidarity to anti-colonial struggles around the world throughout the '60s and '70s.
The Agit-Prop Department had issued invitations to our followers and supporters around the world to tune in to a live online video broadcast of the June 7 event, to hear Chairman Omali's report, view video recordings from the trip and watch a live video presentation from our new comrades in the Anti-Globalization Movement direct from Moscow.
In order to achieve these objectives, we attempted to use a technology that we were inexperienced with - Google Hangouts On Air - to combine the sharing of pre-recorded video and multi-location video chat. Our lack of expertise with this technology and our lack of proper equipment resulted in a shaky broadcast and we want to express our serious self-criticism to our online viewers who were unable to clearly hear or see important portions of the event.
The broadcast effectively allowed our audience to view a profound exchange with our friends in Moscow, helping us to continue breaking down the historical international isolation of the African liberation struggle. But Chairman Omali's presentation and the video material from his trip were broadcast via a poor quality webcam, making the audio and visuals of very poor quality.
We are happy to share this good quality video with you now, that contains Chairman Omali's presentation, video and photo documentation from the trip, along with a recording of the presentation made to the June 7 event by Alexander V. Ionov and translated by Comrade Svyatoslav of the Anti-Globalization Movement of Russia.
The APSP Agit-Prop Department is growing and expanding our capacity with a goal of being fully staffed, trained and equipped to be able to broadcast live to the world from everywhere that Africans are fighting to be free!
We call on our supporters to contribute to our broadcast fund so that we can obtain better quality broadcast cameras and cover costs for a paid online broadcast service.
We call on videographers, online broadcasters, sound engineers and photographers to join the Uhuru News Squad. Come to our next Orientation on Saturday, July 4 at noon U.S. Eastern Time. Sign-up at UhuruNews.com/register to receive the online orientation connection information.
