And you know we live in a white supremacist world ..

dank-potion:

  • when white people can wage wars on false pretenses, deplete the economy of trillions of dollars during the biggest economic disaster of the past 100 years, kill/rape/sodomize millions and destroy the fundamental fiber of a country’s being, justify it by using a crime that happened by several radical over a decade ago and the victims in the middle east are looked at as being dangerous.
  • and when they can use the media to portray Blacks and Latinos as being dangerous, while simultaneously robbing poorer Black and Latino nations of their resources, causing the starvation/displacement of many and bolstering how savage like the people residing in the poorer nations are when civil wars start, that they instigate.
  • and when america can exploit Syria and Libya for their lack of human rights and disregard to pro, while pregnant women and college students are being pepper-sprayed and beaten in their own backyards.
  • and when white people are automatically the default in the west, therefore under/misrepresenting people of color (which inherently is racist), but people are calling out racism at the sight of native american history month, ebony magazine, etc.

WHAT IS ANTI-IMPERIALISM?Monday 28 November, 6.30pm, University of London Union



This year we have witnessed something that should be very worrying to all those that consider themselves anti-war, anti-imperialist and anti-racist. The British state has been at the head of a colonial war in North Africa, and there has been practically zero meaningful opposition to that war within Britain. In February 2003, two million people marched in London against war in Iraq. Only eight years later, all it takes is some reasonably sophisticated propaganda from the press and suddenly nobody is motivated to take a stand against wholesale destruction, widespread massacres and racist lynchings. 

The western empire is pushing its agenda of complete domination of Africa and the Middle East, by destabilising and attempting to overthrow all resistant, independence-minded states and groups (in particular Libya, Syria, Iran, Algeria, Hezbollah, Hamas). Dressing this up as a movement for democracy, they have thrown most people off the scent. We need to fully understand imperialist strategy and tactics, and develop our own strategy and tactics to oppose them. 
Speakers include: MARCEL CARTIERBronx-based rapper and activist, talking about organising against the US empire from within the belly of the beast.FRANCISCO DOMINGUEZChair of the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign, talking about opposing imperialism from a Latin American perspectiveOBIANG NSANGActivist from the All-African People’s Revolutionary Party, talking about opposing imperialism from a Pan-African perspectiveDANIEL RENWICKYouth worker, writer and activist, talking about the anti-war movement in BritainThere will be rap, poetry and beatbox from Marcel Cartier, Samira Musa and more.MORE SPEAKERS/PERFORMERS TBA.

Comrade Fidel Castro and Col. Muammar Gadhafi

Why are the media silent about Black people being lynched alongside Gadhafi?

fuckyeahmarxismleninism:

By Sukant Chandan, Sons of Malcolm

Never before has the world witnessed empire and its mercenaries (in the form of the pro-nato Libyan rebels) perform such a public gruesome crucifixion of a leader of the world anti-imperialist movement.

The lynching of Gadafi, whose videos are being paraded throughout the empire media shows us that at this moment of growing war against the Global South the empire is sending us clear message of white supremacy and wars of aggression.
The war in Libya reflects the Black Liberation struggle of Africa in the forces of the resistance, and for these reasons darker skinned people have fought disproportionally in the resistance, and have been targeted disproportionally by nato and their allies.

In the videos of Gadafi’s lynching, there are several Black people who are tied to the back of pro-nato rebel pick-up trucks. One of them, the first below, is immediately in the vicinity of Gadafi being lynched.

The second photo is taken from a clip from Al-Jazeera English, which is a piece about the lynching of Gadafi. This is a screen print, although the camera stays on this scene for 9seconds and then cuts straight to another two people in the back of pro-nato rebel trucks, including what looks like a very young black man of around 20yrs old with a lighter skinned middle aged Libyan man with an Islamic skull cap on.
The AJE piece makes no comment on this footage, which is unsurprising, as AJE and its Arabic channel have led the racist story of ‘African mercenaries’ fighting for Gadafi (to date no evidence has been provided, admitted by western media and ngos), which has helped facilitate the mass lynching of darker skinned people in Libya, including the complete destruction of the town of 25,000 mostly darker skinned Libyans in Tawergha.

As far as I am aware, I have been the only one who has commented on these images in THIS interview on Russia Today. I would encourage others to raise their voices. A small point, I was mistaken that I thought one of the black brothers was tied to vertical poles, he is actually tied to a mounted heavy artillery gun barrel on the pick-up truck which is at a 45 degree angle. He is clearly terrified and bloodied.
Why arent these images being commented on more in the media and by commentators etc? Has the lynching of black people become so acceptable?

"

Once the Libyans realize what the Iraqis and Afghans have bitterly discovered—that we have no interest in democracy, that our primary goal is appropriating their natural resources as cheaply as possible and that we will sacrifice large numbers of people to maintain our divine right to the world’s diminishing supply of fossil fuel—they will hate us the way we deserve to be hated. Libya has the ninth largest oil reserves in the world, which is why we react with moral outrage and military resolve when Gadhafi attacks his citizens, but ignore the nightmare in the Congo, where things for the average Congolese are far, far worse. It is why the puppets in the National Transitional Council have promised to oust China and Brazil from the Libyan oil fields and turn them over to Western companies. The unequivocal message we deliver daily through huge explosions and death across the occupied Middle East is: We have everything and if you try and take it away from us we will kill you.

History is replete with conquering forces being cheered when they arrive, whether during the Nazi occupation of the Ukraine in World War II, the Israeli occupation of southern Lebanon or our own arrival in Baghdad, and then rapidly mutating from liberator to despised enemy. And once our seizure of Libyan oil becomes clear it will only ramp up the jihadist hatred for America that has spread like wildfire across the Middle East. We are recruiting the next generation of 9/11 hijackers, all waiting for their chance to do to us what we are doing to them.

Chris Hedges, Libya: here we go again

I don’t know as far as saying we are recruiting 9/11 hijackers, but I do agree that yesterday’s victims rapidly become today’s victimizers. Must read for those following Libyan news.

Libya: One More Noose!

fuckyeahmarxismleninism:

From Class Against Class!:

“U.S. imperialism invaded China’s territory of Taiwan and has occupied it for the past nine years. A short while ago it sent its armed forces to invade and occupy Lebanon. The United States has set up hundreds of military bases in many countries all over the world.

“China’s territory of Taiwan, Lebanon and all military bases of the United States on foreign soil are so many nooses round the neck of U.S. imperialism.

“The nooses have been fashioned by the Americans themselves and by nobody else, and it is they themselves who have put these nooses round their own necks, handing the ends of the ropes to the Chinese people, the peoples of the Arab countries and all the peoples of the world who love peace and oppose aggression.

“The longer the U.S. aggressors remain in those places, the tighter the nooses round their necks will become.”

Speech at the Supreme State Conference (September 8, 1958)
