The Two Faces of the Empire

My people,

I’ve been wanting to talk to you about this for a while.  Let’s see how I can start.   A couple of days ago two Guatemalan children, who were in juvenile detention centers in U.S.-controlled territory, died while in the custody of U.S. federal agents.  These two deaths reminded me that this is the same government, in the 1940s, that injected Guatemalans with syphilis in their country. And in 1954, when the Guatemalan government nationalized the United Fruit Company, they conducted a coup d’etat against the progressive government of Jacobo Árbenz.

Support Mumia at this Critical Moment

On Dec. 27, Common Pleas Judge Leon Tucker issued a ruling favorable to Mumia Abu-Jamal, granting him the right to have reheard appeals previously denied by Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court from 1998-2012.

The only thing that can stand in the way of this is if Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner caves into pressure already being exerted by Maureen Faulkner and the Fraternal Order of Police to appeal Tucker’s ruling.

It is urgent that Krasner hear from Mumia Abu-Jamal’s supporters urging him to take a stand against the FOP and allow justice to proceed.

Academic Institutions Must Defend Free Speech

Cartoon, Carlos Latuff

We, the undersigned, oppose the coordinated campaign to deny academics their free speech rights due to their defense of Palestinian rights and criticism of the policies and practices of the state of Israel. Temple University in Philadelphia, USA and the University of Sydney, Australia have been under great pressure to fire, respectively, Marc Lamont Hill and Tim Anderson, both senior academics at their institutions, for these reasons. Steven Salaita and Norman Finkelstein have already had their careers destroyed by such attacks. Hatem Bazian, Ahlam Muhtaseb, William Robinson, Rabab Abdulhadi and others have also been threatened.

Mercenary Revelry at the OAS

By Elson Concepción Pérez on December 9, 2018

Luis Almagro has staged a new show in the United States, by now accusing Cuba of exporting “torturers” to Venezuela and Nicaragua.

What is going on with Cuba is terrible. Imagine that some 46,000 Cuban collaborators in Venezuela, the vast majority of them doctors, health technicians, nurses, educators, sports and cultural coaches, are – according to Luis Almagro – “teaching torture” in that Latin American nation.

As if that wasn’t enough the imposter also added that hundreds of doctors from the island who work in Nicaragua are also “torturers”, as he makes his bid for re-election as secretary general of the Organization for American States (OAS) for 2020-2025.
