On June 20th, the Anti-Globalization Movement of Russia (AGM) attended an online conference with the Uhuru movement and the African People’s Socialist Party. Alexander Ionov represented AGM, while Uhuru movement was represented by Penny Hess, the chairperson of the African People’s Solidarity Committee. The most significant achievement of the event was raising funds for the “Reparations For Stolen Black Lives” Fundraiser. During the talks, Alexander Ionov mentioned that human rights are brutally violated in the United States. He also brought up the cases of American activist Mumia Abu-Jamal and Russian pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko who stay imprisoned by US government. Alexander noted that fascist and Nazi ideologies, as well as organizations advocating such ideologies, are officially permitted on the territory of the US.

On June 21st, the AGM attended another conference with Omali Yeshitela, the leader of the Uhuru movement and African People’s Socialist Party, which was broadcasted live on uhurunews.com. It was dedicated to the expansionistic policy of the US and NATO directed to arm the countries bordering Russia, while pushing propaganda of hatred and aggression against Russia and Russian people through mainstream media. Omali Yeshitela expressed solidarity with Russia and urged Africans to not participate in any military venture against Russia. In return, Alexander Ionov expressed his solidarity with African people in their struggle for freedom against neo-colonial oppression, pointing out that the events like the ones that took place in Charleston on June 17th have no place in the modern world.
