Towards a world without colonialism, imperialism and racism.

Patrice Lumumba, one of the greatest anti-colonial thinkers and leaders of the 20th century, was murdered on 17 January 1961, just ten weeks after being elected as the first Prime Minister of the Republic of Congo. Both Belgium and the US were involved in plotting his death.

Fifty years later, much of Africa and the third world still suffers under neocolonialism, but the tide is starting to turn. We are organising this meeting in order to reflect on the changes of the last 50 years and to discuss possibilities for the future of struggle against colonialism, imperialism and racism.

"We must move forward, striking out tirelessly against imperialism. From all over the world we have to learn lessons which events afford. Lumumba's murder should be a lesson for all of us." (Che Guevara).
