GeoClan.com interview about Journalists for Mumia Abu-Jamal

Hans Bennett interviewed by Clayton Ruley | Those advocating this radical journalist's execution show a disturbing lack of concern about the undeniable problems of racism (and all documented police/DA/judicial misconduct) throughout this case. At the most fundamental level, the FOP-led 'Fry Mumia' campaign's lack of concern is racist....The FOP appeals to a racist lynch-mob mentality that has long infected the US, so calling this a 'legal lynching' is no exaggeration. more...  0 Comments

Adalah-NY | "I was beaten until I fainted. When I return to consciousness it was dark. The next day I crawled back." Testimonies from the mine in which Leviev is a partner. Shooting at residents, murderous beatings with digging spades, whipping, and being thrown into the mud.

Leviev's spokesperson: "The group created a revolution in the diamond industry in Africa in general and in Angola in particular. We have widespread social and philanthropic programs there." more...  0 Comments

"This cop who did it must see what it is to kill a kid and to destroy a life."

emiliano | Amazing how different we are from other people in the world. In the US, teenagers are killed in cold blood every few weeks by police, and only minimal outcry is ever voiced, and usually it is from activists rather than the general public. We have become so totally jaded, consumed with our possessions, immersed in a sea of digits signifying the (ever more imaginary and precarious) financial wealth accredited to each of us, lost in our iPhones, boxed away for shipment in our SUVs, that the many deaths at the hands of the US government at home and abroad as well as the infinite harm we inflict on the world, well, we just don't notice it.

For perspective, here's a quote from the streets of Athens:

"Rage is what I feel for what has happened, rage," said one protesting student. "This cop who did it must see what it is to kill a kid and to destroy a life." more...  1 Comments
