Coming off our second-anniversary week, we wanted to alert you that you can watch each talk from our standing-room only April 4 event here. Featured speakers include activist Gina Best, poet Ife al-Din, Rev. Graylan Hagler, and Black Alliance for Peace (BAP) members Jacqueline Luqman, Jaribu Hill, Glen Ford, Netfa Freeman, Margaret Kimberley, Vanessa Beck, Rose Brewer and Ajamu Baraka. Watch them together or one at a time. Then do the oppressed peoples of the world a favor and share.
A few hours before the event, Netfa and Ajamu gave interviews to Sputnik’s “The Critical Hour” about our new campaign, our take on NATO, and how to appropriately honor the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s work against materialism, militarism and racism. Check it out at minute 19:00.
Then after an anti-government force advanced westward toward Tripoli, Netfa went on RT’s “In Question” on Monday to discuss what’s next for the U.S. presence in Libya. We'd like to remind folks that what was once the most prosperous African country had been destroyed by the NATO (U.S.) war in 2011.
Netfa also spoke Thursday to “The Critical Hour” about “ghost skins”, covert white supremacists who the FBI has found lurk in all levels of U.S. law enforcement. As African/Black internationalists, we are not surprised.
On Tuesday in New York City, Ajamu reported on his experience with the U.S. Peace Council delegation to Venezuela at a National Writers Union event.
Finally, the agitation BAP engaged in during the first week of April, opposing NATO and lifting up MLK’s legacy, wasn’t free. Since we do not get corporate funding, we must come back to you. Please help us make up for these revolutionary expenses with a generous tax-deductible donation.
Struggle to win,
Ajamu, Jaribu, Margaret, Netfa, Paul, Vanessa and YahNé
