The Links Between Black Lives Matter and the São Paulo Forum

Black Lives Matter, Foro de São Paulo

Leer en Español

“Tell me who you hang with and I’ll tell you who you are” must be a fundamental political motto when it comes to analyzing politics. The links, reinforced by events, meetings, working groups, transnational organizations, and funding, are a much stronger indication than the very words of political agents. In Latin American, the threat of the São Paulo Forum is the same as that of the Leviathan: a monster that does not let itself be easily shown… and that is precisely why it is so dangerous. 

The case of Black Lives Matter is different because it has made clear that its short-term objective is to prevent U.S. President Donald Trump from being reelected.

Nevertheless, in a world where information is always available, but not necessarily in plain sight, it is vital —especially for citizens— to investigate the alliances and relationships that politicians, parties, movements and any other agent of power have, since that is often where the truth of their interests and short, medium and long term goals lie.

The São Paulo Forum brings together the most radical leftist parties across the region. Their goal is creating a power block that governs the region in a monolithic manner, all under the ideology of 21st Century Socialism. The same one implemented in nations like Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua. Its alliance with Black Lives Matter and Antifa means the expansion of this revolutionary project to the US. In the medium term, the main goal of Black Lives Matter is “to set the system on fire” and in the long term to create a new one where there is “black sovereignty, by any means necessary,” according to its own leaders.

Now, straight to the facts: the actions that Black Lives Matter have shown that, in reality, those goals are divided into three terms. Any political agent with a realistic vision of power also needs to consolidate relationships and alliances beyond its borders. 

Revolutionaries, in particular, have a great deal of experience in this regard, and stand out for achieving highly influential blocks of power or highly sophisticated structures that, for the sake of illustration, qualify as Deep States with transnational tentacles. 

Thus, Black Lives Matter has been carrying out its international policy for years towards Latin America where the São Paulo Forum has governed as it pleases for decades inside and outside governmental structures.

In 2015, the founder of Black Lives Matter, Opal Tometi, joined the narco-dictator Nicolás Maduro in the People of African Descent Leadership summit, where “the struggle of President Maduro to vindicate the rights of the people” was recognized. In the photo that was taken, Tometi makes a revolutionary gesture with his closed fist, while she hugs the tyrant.

At the event, Tometi said she was “aware that justice also has to do with racial aspects,” according to the Venezuelan state website Alba Ciudad. In addition, Tometi participated as an international observer of the legislative elections of 2015. In a tweet she praised the Communist dictatorship of Venezuela as “a place where there is an intelligent political discourse,” after dozens of young people were murdered in the streets during the protests that took place in the South American country in 2014.

This is not the only link that Black Lives Matter has with the São Paulo Forum. Two years later, the same organization that embraced Maduro, participated in one of the Forum’s annual meetings along with groups such as the Movement Towards Socialism (MAS) of Bolivia (the party of Evo Morales and his winning candidate Luis Arce), the Brazilian criminal organization Movement of Landless Workers (MST), the Farabundo Martí Front for National Liberation of El Salvador, and the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the party of the Chavista narco-dictatorship.

They assure in a press release on the website of the Forum, that the objective of this meeting across D. C., Maryland, and Virginia is to “create a broad meeting of organizations representing civil society to link priority national issues (especially immigration) with the issues of the Latin American struggle. 

In the working agenda in which Black Lives Matter participated through its representative April Goggans, there are issues such as “direct street action, education for Hispanics, labor movement, lobbying in Congress and other institutions”, “The struggle in Venezuela”, “The struggle in Brazil” and a series of “objectives and challenges” regarding the U.S. 

Three years later, in pursuit of the proposed goals, and having taken advice from the Latin American left, BLM has now started to destabilize the United States.

The São Paulo Forum and Antifa 

As if the Forum’s relationship with Black Lives Matter were not enough, it also has links with Antifa, the terrorist organization, which is already linked with the Kurdish terrorist organization PKK/YPG, as reported by One America News Network (OANN) security and defense expert Jack Posobiec, along with Brad Johnson of Americans for Intelligence Reform

In South American latitudes, Antifa has managed to organize itself in Jair Bolsonaro’s Brazil, thanks to member parties of the São Paulo Forum. 

In May, while the US was immersed in protests, Antifa decided to make its presence felt across Brazil, in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and Curitiba by vandalizing courts, shopping centers, beating up Bolsonaro’s supporters, burning the National Flag and calling for the ousting of the president. Shortly after the Ministry of Justice and other authorities quickly constituted a dossier with information on the whole revolutionary structure of Antifa, deputies of the Workers’ Party and the Communist Party of Brazil (PCdoB), members of the São Paulo Forum, repudiated the “inquisition of the Bolsonaro Government against anti-fascist servants”.

After street occupations in Brazil skyrocketed, national intelligence agencies such as the Brazilian Intelligence System (SISBIN) and the Brazilian Intelligence Agency (ABIN) have been studying in detail the modus operandi of the organization designated as terrorist by President Trump, since it called attention to the timing of such actions in conjunction with those being developed in the United States

According to the official website of the Brazilian Communist Party (which served as the vice-presidential formula for former Workers Party candidate Fernando Haddad in 2017), two manifestos were drafted in support of Antifa —linked to soccer fans movements—, one of which was signed by former Communist Party vice-presidential candidate Manuela D’Avila, Haddad himself and former president Fernando Henrique Cardoso (PSDB).

The same party of the former vice-presidential candidate of the São Paulo Forum formula received through one of its regional efforts in Brazil a donation of one million dollars from George Soros through his Open Society to promote the Left’s agenda. As in previous occasions, the mogul has also financed leaders of the radical Left in Brazil, such as former Congressman Jean Willys, the same party (PSOL) Adelio Bispo (who attempted to kill Jair Bolsonaro) was a member of.

According to a research made by the Revista Oeste of Brazil, the Communist Party is directly involved with the Antifa movement through the Union of Socialist Youth, which in turn finances the Castro Alves School of Political Training. This institution teaches a six-day course called “Understand Fascism to be Antifascist”. According to PCdoB’s website, such course consists of several subjects such as “Lessons of Anti-Racism to be an Anti-Fascist” and “Bolsonarism and Neofascism”

The ties that unite Black Lives Matter with the São Paulo Forum are a public and open threat to the stability of the American continent. Stability that, in the eyes of its members (such as Nicolás Maduro, Evo Morales and Lula da Silva), must be dismantled along with its prejudices and historical crimes in order to give life to a system that, despite the evidence that says the opposite, they point to as inclusive, egalitarian and peaceful.
