We are working to build the political community of all those and all those who refuse the concealment of domination and oppression inscribed in the history and state institutions of Western countries. We affirm that no future is possible if we are not inspired by past and current resistance.
We must teach the objective of history so that new generations do not reproduce past crimes. Learning from the past to build a better future.
Our main objective is to converge within the same racist and decolonial dynamic, all resistance areas that will give the inhabitants of the popular districts of Brussels.

Holland: International Institute for Scientific Research
The International Institute for Scientific Research (IISR) in The Hague, Holland, is an institute that is devoted to exploring the colonizing and decolonizing of the mind.
