CHAPTER THREE
Ideological Statement* Junta of Militant Organizations (JOMO)

The Junta of Militant Organizations is a totally black organization with all the connotations that this implies. We believe that the liberation of black people will be determined for the most part by the kind of real power black people are able to create that will speak to our own needs. We believe in the validity of the democratic concept of self-determination.

The Junta of Militant Organizations is a black nationalist organization, which simply means that we recognize black people as constituting a nation, politically separate and apart from the United States of America, and that we are working toward the realization of the power consistent with this concept of nationhood.

This does not negate the concept of "foreign aid." We welcome any assistance from citizens of the colonial government who recognize the justness of our struggle. We only demand that this asistance be given on a "no-strings-attached" basis. We understand that there are many citizens of the colonial government, who use our self-determination concept as an excuse not to give assistance to our struggle. We have no problem with this. We recognize this as objective racism. Black people have as much right to self-determination as any people, and that right cannot be bought with "aid." Our REAL friends understand this.

The Junta of Militant Organizations is an anticolonialist organization. We believe the immediate cause of the problems of black people in the continental USA is colonialism, based on racism and economic expediency. We recognize the fact that all citizens of the colonial power may not be conscious colonizers, but we feel that since their government is [a colonizer], and since they benefit materially from the colonization of other peoples of the world,
