American policy is responsible for ISIS. Ferguson violence alerts world. Is Garvey's spirit alive in Ferguson?
Zafar Bangash, Gloria La Riva, Norman Otis Richmond
ISIS is a scam, just like the Syrian "chemical weapons" of last year. The same person is responsible for both of these: Saudi Prince Bandar Bin Sultan.
The purpose is the same as last year's WMD hoax: to clear a path for U.S. entry into Syria.
Zafar Bangash explains how the U.S., Turkey, and Gulf monarchs have nurtured ISIS from the very beginning as their contra force against Syria.
Gloria La Riva reports on the growing movement sparked by the people's rejection of the police shooting to death a peaceful Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. She describes similar police shootings in other cities.
The militarized police rained rubber bullets on many people, including Gloria, who were marching in a legal, peaceful protest.
The people's demands are: Arrest murdering police officer Gary Wilson; Change the police force; Force the resignation of the DA prosecutor and of the police chief.
Gloria states that the Militarized Police show racism and a disdain for the poor, that those in power focus on dividing and conquering the working class. She derides the power system: Pentagon giving weapons to local police and the FBI countering People's movements with a coordinated (and financed by taxpayers) plan.
Norman Otis Richmond celebrates the great African Internationalist Marcus Garvey on the 100th anniversary of his Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA) in Jamaica, which he duplicated in NYC, and which became the largest mass movement of African people in the world.
Richmond traces Garvey's influence and visits in Canada.
Richmond describes Garvey's 22 lessons for new black leadership after his death, but claims that Garvey's most significant contribution was his oratory skills to deliver his message. Garvey founded Negro World, the most read newspaper around the world, and ran The Daily newspaper for three years.
Malcolm X's father distributed Garvey's newspapers, and Malcolm's mother educated her children with them -- planting the seed for the next greatest African American organizer.
