A friend and mentor, Paul Pumphrey of Brothers and Sisters International sent this out on his ListServ about the violence in Kenya. He brings up some really interesting points that I’m sure we all should be aware of….plz get familiar! (much more after the jump)


The violence that is now taking place in Kenya paints a far too familiar picture of the tactics used by the US against countries like Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Haiti and Iraq. If a closer look is taken one can find large sums of moneys distributed by organizations like National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, (NDI) and International Republican Institute, (IRI). Both of these organizations were created by the US Congress and the US Democratic and Republican Parties. The NDI describes itself as a nonprofit organization working to strengthen and expand democracy worldwide. Calling on a global network of volunteer experts, NDI provides practical assistance to civic and political leaders advancing democratic values, practices and institutions. NDI works with democrats in every region of the world to build political and civic organizations, safeguard elections, and to promote citizen participation, openness and accountability in government. The IRI describes itself as conducting programs outside the United States to promote democracy and strengthen free markets and the rule of law. Go to the web sites of these organization and read the coded messages they have given. Ask yourself and the politician of both the Democrats and the Republicans why they support the activities of these organizations against the poor of this world. (more…)

A friend of mine recently went into his local 7/11 connivence store and came across the disturbing image of two singing Santa Clause dolls. But these were not your ordinary Christmas fan favorite St. Nicholas’. One doll was the typical image of a Caucasian man portrayed as the Santa that you usually see around this time “Ho Ho Ho”ing in his red suit and soft white beard; yet his trusty accomplice, usually a Black man in a similar red suit and soft white beard was dressed differently.

On Friday, November 2, 2007, Warren Ballentine, Reverend Al Sharpton and other civil rights leaders are calling for a national boycott. 


WHO: Warren Ballentine “The People’s Attorney” and radio Truth Fighter is calling for a National Blackout throughout America.

WHAT: Warren is calling for a National Blackout that is necessary for African Americans, and is long over due. Especially with all the present injustices that are being allowed and accepted in America right now. From the situation with Mychal Bell and the Jena 6, Genarlow Wilson, Megan Williams, and all of the nooses being hung all of America lately. Until we have federal legislation regarding hate crimes as African Americans we need to band together to show our “Economic Power” by refusing to spend ANY money from fast food restaurants to gas.

WHY: As African Americans we spend an estimated 715 billion dollars a year, and if we were to stop spending for one day that’s 2 billion dollar that will not in the system. However we ask that you don’t make a mad dash to the stores days prior to or the days following. If the stores have a major increase in sales right before or right after the Blackout then we will not create the impact we need.

WHEN: Friday, November 2, 2007

This is another great documentary that premiers on Nov. 2nd in NY and L.A and on Nov.9th in select cities around the US and Canada. The genocide in Darfur is one of the most ignored yet devastating issues that our generation has ever witnessed thus far. This documentary does a an excellent job of speaking for those not heard. Hopefully it generates a lot of more awareness. Here’s a little bio from the Darfur Now myspace page.

DARFUR NOW is a story of hope in the midst of one of humanity’s darkest hours – a call to action for people everywhere to end the catastrophe unfolding in Darfur, Sudan. In this documentary, the struggles and achievements of six different individuals from inside Darfur and around the world bring to light the tragedy in Sudan and show how the actions of one person can make a difference to millions.

Written and directed by Ted Braun, the film explores the Darfur conflict through the first-hand experiences of Don Cheadle, Hejewa Adam, Pablo Recalde, Ahmed Mohammed Abakar, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, and Adam Sterling. Executive Produced by Jeff Skoll, Diane Weyermann, Omar Amanat, Matt Palmieri, Gary Greenebaum and Dean Schramm. Produced by Cathy Schulman, Don Cheadle and Mark Jonathan Harris. Co-Produced by Lenore Zerman, Line Produced by Jacqueline Frank.

Yesterday (10/8) marked the 40th anniversary of the capture and murder of revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara in Bolivia. Che was a guerilla fighter, and Marxist theorist who participated in the Cuban Revolution and struggles worldwide throughout the 60’s.His bones, brought to Cuba from Bolivia a decade ago, are entombed under the statue that is the site of Guevara’s key military victory that prompted former leader Fulgencio Batista to flee Cuba on December 31, 1958. Che later became a naturalized citizen of Cuba and the revolutionary government’s first industry minister.
Soldiers captured Che on October 8, 1967, in Bolivia, where he was trying to foment an uprising against the military government of Gen. Rene Barrientos Ortuno, who rose to power in a coup and was later elected president. Che was executed upon Barrientos’ orders in the small mountain community of La Higuera the next day.

The iconic image of Che with a scraggly beard and a beret is still embraced by many in Cuba and the rest of Latin America, where he inspired guerrilla movements in the 1970s and 1980s. But the image is hated by anti-Communists, especially Cubans in exile who recall the dogmatic Marxist’s role in the purge trials and executions of hundreds of police and army officials accused of torturing and killing opponents while Batista was in power.

In other tributes to Che around Latin America, more than 7,000 people, most of them young people, held a Sunday march in Bolivia. In Che’s native Argentina on Sunday, about 400 young people waved “Che” flags on the Plaza de Mayo in downtown Buenos Aires and listened to local rock bands playing in his memory.

Our friends at ThatFreshRadioPiece.com (a University of Maryland ran student radio show) did an incredible tribute in honor of Che’s death last Wednesday on their show, that everyone should definitely check out.
