Black Panther Party 50 years later: ‘All Power to the People’

first_imgA new generation of freedom fighters at the Black Panther 50th anniversary celebration in Harlem.Harlem, New York — A “Legacy Weekend” celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party was held here on Nov. 12. The conference was sponsored by the National Alumni Association of the BPP, which held a similar conference in Oakland, Calif., in October. The gatherings show how the Panthers’ hard work and examples of leadership are still vital. Many earlier supporters attended, and youth came to learn from the experience and wisdom of these revolutionaries whose legacy lives on.The Harlem celebration was a special “intergenerational convening of the past, present and future of the Black freedom struggle” and opened at the the Kennedy Center for Seniors. The relevance of the Panthers to today’s Black Lives Matter movement is recorded in point seven of the BPP Ten-Point Program, written half a century ago: “We want an immediate end to police brutality and murder of Black people and other people of color, and all oppressed people inside the U.S.”The BPP was founded in Oakland in 1966 by Bobby Seale and Huey P. Newton in response to police brutality and other racist attacks on Black people. The Black Panther Party for Self Defense was respected for its Ten-Point Program dealing with the biased judicial system, unemployment and the need for health care and decent housing. The party’s community programs exemplified for the whole working class what it could be like to live in communities with free breakfast programs, lead testing, free groceries and free medical clinics, and that such social advances were, in fact, possible.And the Panthers carried all this out while defending armed struggle, if needed, especially against police brutality. These well-organized cadre insisted on the right of self-determination for oppressed people. Other groups, like the Young Lords Party, aligned their organizations with the Panthers, though the BPP was under constant surveillance, physical attack and a death sentence by the police and the state.The Harlem conference continued this tradition of struggle with an appeal to free Mumia Abu-Jamal, a former leader of the Black Panther Party in Philadelphia and supporter of that city’s MOVE organization, now a political prisoner serving a life sentence. An international movement saved Mumia, a renowned independent journalist and author, from the death sentence. Now, the fight is on to save him and countless others jailed in U.S. prisons from the “cruel and unusual punishment” of slow death from untreated hepatitis C.Sister Pam Africa and others from the International Concerned Family and Friends of Mumia Abu-Jamal and the New York Free Mumia Coalition announced a Dec. 9 Philadelphia demonstration to demand Hep C treatment for Mumia and all prisoners.The legacy of the Panthers is a living-struggle legacy, still “Ona move” and still ready to “Seize the time!”For information about Dec. 9, contact [email protected] or call 215-724-1618.

Hands Off Syria kicks off speaking tour

first_imgMargaret Kimberley and Sara Flounders Bahman Aziz Hands Off Syria on Dec 2. Eva Bartlett and Dr. Ghias Moussa New York – It was standing-room-only at the Manhattan Theatre Club. People not able to find seats stood in the hall or in the back to hear members of the Hands Off Syria Coalition report on what the next U.S. president might mean for the war in Syria.The panel discussion on Dec. 2 kicked off a national speaking tour that will headline Eva Bartlett, an independent journalist, along with local activists in different cities. Also participating were Dr. Ghias Moussa of the Syrian American forum, Margaret Kimberley of the Black Agenda Report and Sara Flounders representing the International Action Center. The tour will also bring speakers to audiences from Detroit to Denver and several cities in California. Bahman Aziz of the U.S. Peace Council chaired the event.Bartlett, who had just returned from East Aleppo, spoke about how Syrians were pleased to hear that there are people in the West who support their struggle against foreign-backed fighters and can see through the haze of corporate media fog surrounding the war.Moussa told the audience what life in Syria was like before the war began to tear the country apart. Bread was subsidized, education was free and sectarianism was kept in check by the state.Kimberley drew connections between racism in the United States and the racism inherent in the foreign policy of destruction that has decimated Libya, Haiti and Syria.Flounders spoke of the need to resist Donald Trump, as his foreign policy is likely not to deviate too much from the previous administration and that, if anything, the violence and grief the Syrian people have suffered over the last years will increase under a Trump presidency if there is no resistance.Many attending were curious about how the new presidency might affect the situation in the Middle East. While Hillary Clinton was certainly openly belligerent in her plans for Syria, some have assumed that Trump will be less exuberant about continuing the U.S. government’s decades long brutal onslaught against the people of the Middle East and North Africa.As many of the panelists pointed out to the audience, the U.S. history of war across the world is not new, and indeed knows no party affiliation. In the Gulf War of 1990-1991, President George H.W. Bush, a Republican, sent U.S. forces to Kuwait and later invaded Iraq. Sanctions on Iraq were continued under President Bill Clinton, a Democrat, and a second war against Iraq was launched in 2003 by George W. Bush, a Republican. The same bipartisan treatment has been handed out to Palestine, as year after year the U.S. government funds and arms the Israeli apartheid machine that dumps white phosphorus on hospitals in Gaza.The panelists indicated that we shouldn’t expect much of a change between a Democrat like Obama and a Republican like Trump when it comes to the war in Syria. All were in agreement that we need to build a strong coalition that is ready to take militant action against Trump’s racism and imperialism.More dates for the Hands Off Syria Campaign speaking tour are:Washington, D.C : Tuesday, Dec. 6, 6 p.m.National Webinar: Wednesday, Dec. 7, 9 p.m.Newark, N.J.: Thursday, Dec. 8, 7:30 p.m.New Haven, Conn.: Saturday, Dec. 10, 2 p.m.Boston: Sunday, Dec. 11, 4 p.m.Detroit: Monday, Dec. 12.Denver: Tuesday Dec. 13.Several cities in California: Dec. 14-18.For detailed information about each of these events, please visit the coalition’s website at HandsOffSyriaCoalition.net.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

World Cup hasn’t loosened Russia’s grip on media freedom, RSF says

first_img News Pursuing the football metaphor, Deloire added that the Kremlin “fixes matches by arbitrarily changing the rules of the game.” What with penalizing defamation and “offending the feelings of religious believers,” the laws are getting more repressive all the time, and their broad and vague wording allows the referees to apply them in a selective and arbitrary manner. No one ever gets a red card for tackling journalists from behind. From police violence to murders of journalists, impunity is the rule. At least 34 journalists have been killed in connection with their reporting in Russia since Putin first became prime minister in 1999. In the vast majority of these cases, the investigations go nowhere and the masterminds are never identified.

Thereafter he was taken to a police station and charged under article 54 of the criminal code.When taken before a judge, he said he was tortured for eight hours, above all by means of electric shocks. RAB personnel told him four other journalists were on a list of people to be interrogated, he said. The authorities are apparently accusing him of being in contact with Islamist extremists. He was already arrested and mistreated by the RAB last year.Reporters Without Borders today also urged the security forces and activists of various political parties including the Awami League to respect the media when they are covering demonstrations. A total of 15 media personnel were injured by police or demonstrators during protests on 28 October in Dhaka, Rajshahi and Mohonganj. The eight injured in Dhaka included Daily Shamokal veteran reporter Shafique Kajol, who was badly beaten by members of the Awami League’s youth wing. He is still in hospital. Those injured in the provinces include Hafizur Rahman Chayan of the Daily Shamokal, who was beaten by opposition activists in Mohonganj.“It is disgraceful that 15 journalists were physically attacked in a space of less than 24 hours while trying to inform the public about events that are crucial for the country’s political future,” Reporters Without Borders added.

The board will meet on January 17, the first time we will have to reflect on Mike’s recommendations”.Will the new appointment be a dual role of artistic director and chief executive?Pat Cox: “One option is the dual role. My answer to that is an educated ‘don’t know’.There is talk of Limerick arts officer Sheila Deegan having an elevated role?Pat  Cox: “I don’t want to prematurely comment. We have not got into detail yet about the principals to the role. Mike Fitzpatrick will meet with the city council to look at roles, be they interim or not. We want to assure the artistic community in Limerick that what was promised will be done”Limerick arts officer Sheila Deegan, who did the spadework with Kieran Lehane, then director of services for CultureHow will the arts and culture sector board member be appointed?Pat Cox: “It is up to the grassroots to name another director, by selection or election, whatever process they wish. They can decide on someone from inside or outside Limerick. It is entirely at their own choice”.How soon will new appointments be in place?Pat Cox: “Mike Fitzpatrick is to scan the horizon.. discuss with us what needs to be done.

Existing-home sales increased 1% month-over-month to an annualized rate of 4.87 million in December, according to the National Association of Realtors. At the same time, November’s numbers were revised downward. Even with prices and mortgage rates slated to rise, NAR says sales should hold fairly steady in 2014 as job numbers improve.Experts at Freddie Mac and Equifax echoed those sentiments. They expect falling unemployment and economic growth to keep the housing market on solid ground in 2014. Frank Nothaft, chief economist at Freddie Mac, says the economy should increase by 2.5% to 3% this year, which should empower more consumers to buy homes, but there’s still a long road ahead and a lot of healing left to do.Equifax’s chief economist Amy Crews Cutts says one thing to keep an eye on is the pace of household formations in the months ahead. Cutts pointed out that the number of new households created annually fell sharply when the recession hit—and she’s not expecting much change in 2014. Farther down the line, though, she says the lack of buying today could trigger a swell of pent-up demand, once these prospective homeowners start to feel more financially secure.
