NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY FOR SELF-DEFENSE 9 LOCAL OBJECTIVES
These 9 Local Objectives are in accordance with the NBPP National 10 Point Program and Platform.
BLACK POWER BLACK POWER MEANS: TO DEFINE: WHAT IS IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF BLACK PEOPLE. TO DEVELOP: WHAT IS IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF BLACK PEOPLE. TO DEFEND: WHAT IS IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF BLACK PEOPLE.
1. TO DEVELOP A BLACK POWER MOVEMENT:
We, the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense local chapter, representing the national New Black Panther Party, are currently organizing for the benefit of our people in this city, region, nation, and all over the earth. To this end we scientifically and consistently organize to redeem our people and ourselves. We recognize the necessity for Ujima (Collective work and responsibility). We strive to develop a Black Power Movement in the local area to develop complete constructive change amongst our people and to defend our rights. We as a local and national party strive for Black Unity (Umoja) and Black Solidarity with other Black organizations worldwide. We shall build alliances with organizations, leaders, Churches, Mosques and like. When necessary we must deal firmly and appropriately with "Black" leadership who betray the interests of the Black community or Black Nation. We recognize our Divine destiny and the need for Divine guidance in our movement. We are not a religion, however all faiths and spiritual practices are respected and studied from a Black liberation perspective. We support Black liberation and salvation theology as a necessary weapon to redeem ourselves after our enemy has destroyed us. We affirm our Imani (Faith) in the victory of our just cause. "One God, One Aim, One Destiny..." The Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey
2. TO DEVELOP BLACK POWER THROUGH EDUCATION:
We, the New Black Panther Party, work to educate our people, particularly the youth. To that end, our movement educates and teaches the community at our weekly meetings; public forums, rallies; programs; town hall meetings; on the streets; in the schools; in the projects; on the radio; through electronic and print media, and anywhere where knowledge needs to be forwarded. Most of our youth are currently in the public school system. For this reason we will take an active role in school board affairs and general work in the regional public schools. We will struggle to turn the local school board back into the electoral hands of our people.

We also struggle to ensure that knowledge of self and history is taught in the local and regional School Board systems. We support development of independent African-Centered schools. We shall establish our own schools as a Party. We encourage college degrees, professional degrees, as well as trade and vocational training. We strive for the knowledge to compete with the best in civilization. Education also, includes a knowledge of better diet and health practices. A proper education enables us to define, thereby develop and defend what is in our Black self-interest, giving us Kujichagulia-self determination. See point # 5 of our National 10 point program.
3. TO DEVELOP AND DEFEND BLACK ECONOMIC POWER:
We struggle to promote and develop a Black economy. We must control the money that flows in our community. We must own and control the businesses in our community. We struggle for Black owned stores, banks, supermarkets, Laundromats, hotels, cab companies, beauty supply shops, retail outlets, restaurants shopping centers and the like. We must... WE MUST establish trade with our selves our motherland Africa, and the nations of the earth. We must BUY BLACK as often as possible and cease unnecessary spending with non-Black owned businesses. The Hon. Marcus Garvey's U.N.I.A. and the Hon. Elijah Muhammad's Nation of Islam are two great historical examples of building a Black economy. The businesses that currently operate in our community cannot be allowed to exploit the community. We shun exploitation, regardless of the race of the exploiter. We must remove the foreign economic "bloodsuckers", from our community. We support UJAMAA- (Cooperative Economics.) Please see point #3 on our National 10 point program
4. TO DEVELOP AND DEFEND BLACK POLITICAL POWER:
We recognize the reality of politics as being a process that controls the distribution of resources in the city and our community. We built the city, region and country, and are currently forced to pay taxes. To that end we, the New Black Panther Party engage in the political process to ensure the proper use of our communities tax dollars and other dollars that were stolen, by whites, from us. "Politically, Black Nationalism means to control the politics and politicians in our community."...Malcolm X We shall be active in the affairs of the politics of the District, region, and National Government, which impact our people. We will deal with the local city council, regional governments, school boards, ANC's etc. We shall back strong Black candidates when they meet the Black Agenda test requirements. We encourage political awareness and activity to further the Black agenda. All Black politicians who betray the people must be dealt with. We understand that political power is limited, absent economic power and a true knowledge of self. We are 100% opposed to gentrification or white takeover of the inner city. We demand full self-determination for particularly after having built the city and nation. Self- determination today is denied because of blatant racism.
We struggle to establish our own provisional government (in unity with other Black organizations), in order take control of our communities and in preparation for our own OFFICIAL NBPP BLACK POWER MANUAL government soon to come! We advocate political alliances with all African -Black Organizations that are uncompromising in the struggle for liberation. We also will organize with the other oppressed people of color. The New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense is all Black, not integrationist.
5. TO DEVELOP AND ENFORCE ACCOUNTABILITY IN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM:
We respect the Police in our community who show proper respect for our community. We respect those in authority as long they respect us. God alone is our master. We, the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense, mobilize and organize for an end to police brutality and misconduct. We demand the police in our community, and elsewhere, respect the Human Rights of our people and their constitutional rights. We call on Black Police officers to recognize that they are Black men and women first and police officers second. We call on Black police officers to recognize our common enemy who put our people in this condition. We demand full accountability of the police to the citizens of the Black Community. We strive for community police review boards with legal power to seek indictments, punish and discipline rogue police officers. We will monitor and observe the police according to the law. We call for an immediate end to surveillance cameras in the Black community We struggle to reform areas in our community or nation from the negative behavior that the slave master and the decadent American way of life imposed upon us. We believe in our divine and legal rights to self-defense after over 400 years of abuse. The criminal justice system must be held accountable to the will of our people and not a cruel ex-slave master that desires to see our people continuously incarcerated. Of course, our work is in the jails and prisons where many great brothers and sisters are locked up. We demand immediate freedom for all political prisoners and prisoners of racist political circumstance.
6. TO DEVELOP AND DEFEND BLACK YOUTH:
The New Black Panther for Self-Defense recognizes the good qualities and leadership potential in Black youth. We seek to help them to become leaders and defenders of our community. The future of our nation depends on this so-called lost generation. The history of the liberation struggle shows us Black youth at the forefront. We excitedly welcome Black youth into our ranks. We call for an end to gang violence and an end to Black on Black violence in general. We demand, locally, billions of dollars in reparations specifically for the salvation and education of our young people. Every Black youth or able-bodied person in this city and region should be afforded a proper education and reasonable job at a good wage after the robbery of our people for over 400 years. We demand an immediate end to the wholesale incarceration and criminalization of Black youth. We invite Black college student participation and affirm continuity in struggle through youth!

7. TO RECLAIM AND DEVELOP BLACK NIEGHBORHOODS:
We strive, with community residents, to reclaim and clean up our community, block by block. We organize patrols, community events, and programs to reclaim our neighborhoods. We feed and clothe the homeless (with community support) and always work with the downtrodden in our society. We demand adequate health care and rehabilitation in our community!! NO, WE ARE NOT GUARDIAN ANGELS. Again we must fight gentrification or THE WHITE TAKEOVER of the (CITY). We recognize this as a conspiracy to remove our people, and will fight against it by any means necessary. We, with the community, shall establish a new code of conduct in the Black community of love, sisterhood, brotherhood, intelligence, peace, respect and unity and struggle.
8. TO DEFEND BLACK RIGHTS IN GENERAL:
We shall struggle and organize against all forms of racism and discrimination against black people in the region: federal, state and local government racism, corporate racism; consumer racism; police discrimination, housing discrimination and racist discrimination in general. The New Black Panther Party is the vigilant defender of Black people's divine, human and legal rights. To this end we work through the BLACK DEFENSE LEAUGE (an OAAU) and call On Black legal organizations, attorneys, Black activists, pastors; preachers; churches; organizations, and leadership of every Black stripe to join with us against the evils of racism, inequality and injustice. "FREEDOM OR DEATH!"
9. WE DEMAND LOCAL REPARATIONS AND COMPENSATION:
WE AFFIRM THAT THE GOVERNMENTS, CORPORATIONS AND WHITE PRIVATE CITIZENS OF THE REGION, HAVE WILLFULLY, INTENTIONALLY AND RECKLESSLY ENSLAVED, DISCRIMINATED AGAINST, ROBBED AND DISFRANCHISED OUR PEOPLE IN COUNTLESS AND INNUMERABLE WAYS. WE AFFIRM THAT THE SAME ENTITIES WEALTH IN THE REGION IS ROOTED IN THE SLAVE TRADE-SYSTEM AND CURRENTLY PROFIT FROM CONTEMPORARY RACISM & DISENFRANCHISEMENT.
