killer kkkops ignite revolt across america – message to the grassroots, by malcom x

when i think of righteous black rage, i think of malcom x. his life inspired me, and continues to set an exemplary example for overcoming indoctrination, seeing humanity in others, and always – ALWAYS – being willing to learn and grow as a person. i think of him often, and miss his presence in this world greatly. – rlr

Message to the Grass Roots was one of Malcolm X’s last speeches as a member of the Nation of Islam. A few weeks after delivering the speech, Elijah Muhammad, the NOI’s leader, silenced Malcolm X for comments he made with respect to the assassination of President Kennedy. On March 8, 1964, Malcolm X announced his departure from the Nation of Islam.

In some ways, “Message to the Grass Roots” can be viewed as a sign of Malcolm X’s impending separation from the Nation of Islam. In it, he spoke not as a Muslim minister but as a leader of the Black masses.

Some of the themes touched on by Malcolm X in “Message to the Grass Roots” were familiar ones. The distinction between the Black revolution and the Negro revolution, and that between the house Negro and the field Negro, had become common features of his speeches.

here are some excerpts from that speech:

“There was two kind of slaves. There was the house negro and the field negro. The house negro, they lived in the house, with master. They dressed pretty good. They ate good, cause they ate his food, what he left. They lived in the attic or the basement, but still they lived near their master, and they loved their master, more than their master loved himself …

And if you came to the house negro and said “Let’s run away, Let’s escape, Let’s separate” the house negro would look at you and say “Man, you crazy. What you mean separate? Where is there a better house than this? Where can I wear better clothes than this? Where can I eat better food than this?” There was that house negro. In those days, he was called a house nigger. And that’s what we call him today, because we still got some house niggers runnin around here.”

Obama says America has work to do, as unbeknownst to him, tear gas drops in

“Whoever heard of a revolution where they lock arms, singing “We Shall Overcome”? You don’t do that in a revolution. You don’t do any singing, you’re too busy swinging.”

will the cyberwar between Anonymous and the kkk initiate death squad activity in the US?

a repost of anti-media’s article detailing the cyberwar between anonymous and the kkk is below, but i want to get something off my chest first:

WHITEY LOSES IT OVER FERGUSON

the courageous people of ferguson, missouri will not keep quiet. they’ve had enough of a “just-us” system that targets them because dark skin sets them apart from the white folks the system is designed to protect. they want to be treated with dignity and respect of their persons, and will not be pacifiied by the obfuscation of the court system, sidelined by the lies promoted by law “enforcement” officials and their loyal presstitutes. so they’ve been in the streets every day and night, making themselves heard, not going away, not letting the issue fade into the past, unresolved.

DAMN! do the white extremists hate that!

the government keeps telling them to shut up, behave themselves, and go home. yet, for reasons no one in the US mass media or government can comprehend, people in ferguson have been so vocal about not wanting to be shot dead at random by police, they have inspired similarly-minded folks across the country to do the same. and then the death threats started.

not just the random redneck, inbred hillbilly piece-of-shit driving by (hell, i get that walking to the corner store), but threats emanating from organized gangs of terrorists with a long history of murder and arson – the kkk! so far, the media has been quick to embrace the kkk and allow them to voice their views on TV newscasts. their hate spread so quickly and hotly, hacktivist amalgam anonymous decided to launch an operation against the kkk’s online presence. they’ve been fairly successful, and have outed kkk members online, taken over or down kkk websites and accounts, and even identified cops who are also in the klan (kkkops – either one, both, all the same).

what happened next shouldn’t have come as a surprise, but it did catch many offguard. every avenue of officialdom began to scream about terrorists when anonymous began to out kkkops. no doubt, there are too many “respectable” names too closely associated with the klan for comfort by people in power.

and the klan did something few saw coming: they asked their higher-ups for help. in this instance, that means the klan turned to private intelligence companies and their friends in the military for help in countering anonymous’s pwning of klan-related information. the klan got control of anonymous accounts, and claims to have obtained member information. okay – let’s state that clearly here: the klan had help from armed groups to find information on people they have threatened to kill.

Anonymous-KKK-raise-hand-Twittermeanwhile, the media, the police, and politicians are all demanding that the citizens of ferguson remain peaceful, and point nervously towards the non-rioting, unarmed protesters when they discuss impending developments which could result in chaos in the streets. so far, it has mostly been the police causing trouble in the streets with tear gas attacks; targeted arrests of activists, livestreamers and journalists; dogs kept at the ready, onleash and agitated. no mention of the kkk. at least not until the newspeople want to discuss how best to deal with the “negro problem,” when white people from across the political spectrum are invited to speak.

so what is the implied message for those of us safely removed from the conflict? 1)shut up and go home (media pundits, politicians, police), or 2) we’ll kill you! (kkkops).

be diligent out there, and look after your hacktivist friends. because we may have just entered into the era of death squads in the US: where SWAT teams and vigilante groups swarm people’s homes, take them away, and they are never seen again.

this is the way the US has operated abroad for a few decades now, so the military has this down.

The template for US military operations today is not the Vietnam war, which has sometimes been compared to the occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, instead it’s El Salvador, where a right-wing government backed by the US fought a leftist insurgency in a 12-year war beginning in 1980. The cost was high — more than 70,000 people were killed, most of them civilians, in a country with a population of just six million.

Most of the killing and torturing was done by the army and the right-wing death squads affiliated with it. According to an Amnesty International report in 2001, violations committed by the army and associated groups included “extrajudicial executions, other unlawful killings, ‘disappearances’ and torture. . . . Whole villages were targeted by the armed forces and their inhabitants massacred.’

Sansalvador-1981As part of President Reagan’s policy of supporting anti-Communist forces, hundreds of millions of dollars in United States aid was funnelled to the Salvadoran Army, and a team of Special Forces advisers, led for several years by Jim Steele, trained front-line battalions that were accused of significant human rights abuses. The United States lost more than 700 soldiers in the war.

police forces are already able to kill with impunity in the US, so long as they pick the right targets. and there are absolutely NO media outlets screaming “terrorism” over the death threats made by the kkkops, nor the fact that anonymous has already pulled the mask off several kkkops. if this is not the set up for a massacre, and i hope developing circumstances will prove me wrong, then i’m sure a number of people are going to be very disappointed.

the US has been on the verge of a race war since a black man moved into the white house. white supremacist groups have been preaching “racial holy war” (rahowa) from both the pagan/odinist and christian perspectives since the 80s.

obama’s already had to make emergency moves in the military to pull the rug out from under a coup attempt (possibly by racist christian extremists), in the days preceding his re-election. i know snowden and greenwald are sitting on this story and can document it, and i can’t understand why they don’t see how important it is to expose this horrific shit happening in the US while so many lives are potentially in danger.

i just hope that even if insane violence is unleashed in ferguson and elsewhere, the result will not be the same as after the Kent State massacre; we lost two-thirds of the “radicals” overnight.

the future isn’t what it used to be – but it can be what we make. who’s vision for the future do we want to see, the one where lives around the world are snuffed out to keep petrochemical corporations excessively wealthy for ONE MORE DECADE! or do we resolve to make something different?

how WILL you react to bloodbaths in the streets of US cities?

Battle of Masks: Anonymous -vs – Kkkops

(TheAntiMedia) In the ongoing war between Anonymous and the Ku Klux Klan, the KKK had been fairly inactive since Anonymous took over its @KuKluxKlanUSA Twitter account. That is until the Klan retaliated yesterday afternoon.

You would think Anonymous would have picked a harder password to crack #HoodsOn — #HoodsON (@Operation_KKK) November 23, 2014

Based on the direct messages sent from and to this account, we can confirm that this account was run by a kid in his mom’s basement #HoodsOn — #HoodsON (@Operation_KKK) November 23, 2014

If you have not been keeping up with the Battle of the Masks, Anonymous recently declared war aka #OpKKK against the Klan for threatening to harm Ferguson protestors.

UPDATE: Anonymous claims to have regained control of its @Operation_KKK account.

They shouldn’t have followed that link. I guess the Klan isn’t aware of keyloggers. Fuck the Klan #HoodsOff #OpKKK

— Anonymous (@Operation_KKK) November 24, 2014

As part of #OpKKK, Anonymous began revealing the identities of Klan members with a #hoodsoff campaign. Anonymous hackers then seized control of the Ku Klux Klan’s national Twitter account @KuKluxKlanUSA.

16 NOV 2014 09:11:47 You should’ve expected us. #OpKKK continues to be a success. Freedom will prevail. pic.twitter.com/FUrNzBpVOa — Ku Klux Klan (@KuKluxKlanUSA) November 16, 2014

Which essentially brings us to where we are now…

So at this point, Anonymous & the KKK have essentially traded Twitter accounts. So…for KKK news follow Anonymous, & vice versa. Confused?

— Operation Ferguson (@OpFerguson) November 23, 2014

The latest hacker in the cyber war not only swiped 29,000 fans from Anonymous, but also gave the @Operation_KKK Twitter a very, um, KKK makeover.

As it often is with Anonymous, this recent hack may or may not be what it seems. Lingering around the hacker collective are mischievous characters that include everything from government and/or corporate agents to splinter groups like Clownsec and Lulzsec; hacker factions that sometimes sabotage Anonymous actions for the “lulz.”

The many players surrounding Anonymous has led to much speculation regarding who really is behind the hack of the @Operation_KKK account.

In response to Anonymous’ attacks, Imperial Wizard of the Traditionalist American Knight, Frank Ancona, declared war against Anonymous in this message which promises to take the battle from online to the streets.

We held a Klan wide meeting today with the Imperial Wizard, who has decided if you want war, we will give you war, not online, but on the streets, we will hunt you down and tear those masks from your face. You’ll be strung up next to the chimps. On display for the whole world to see. The Klan is to be feared, not threatened. Turn away, or face the consequences. – Frank Ancona, Grand Wizard

Members of Anonymous have vowed to retaliate against the KKK.

Although only time will tell how things play out between these enemies, Anonymous is currently redirecting #OpKKK supporters to their newly established Twitter account.

indigenous amazonian people fight for their lands as belo monte construction continues (video)

reposted from global revolution:

The Munduruku Indians: Weaving Resistance

The Brazilian government is planning to build a vast number of big dams on the rivers around the Amazon Rainforest, destroying biodiversity and disrupting the way of life of thousands of Amerindians and local populations. Now that the work is well under way on the huge Belo Monte dam, on the Xingu river, the government is pushing ahead with its next big project – a series of dams on the Tapajós river. But 12,000 Munduruku Indians, long feared as warriors, live here and are fighting back.

This documentary, filmed in late 2013 and early 2014, looks at life in a Munduruku village, where traditional skills are practised and children are brought up with remarkable freedom. It documents the growth of resistance, even among the women, not traditionally fighters, some of whom are emerging as guerreiras (woman warriors).

MEXICO: Ayotzinapa & Revolution

Originally posted on Resistance Is Fertile:

In Mexico in 1910, a revolt was called for November 20th against the government of Porfirio Díaz (which was in the pockets of national and international economic elites).

Today’s government, which is not much different, has not been able to celebrate the Mexican Revolution in the country’s capital because of a mass protest against its corrupt, murderous rule. As with the other marches in the last month or so, the vast majority of protesters have shown their dignified rage in a peaceful, united manner. This 20th of November, however, the ‘security forces’ of the government made the decision to clear Mexico City’s main square (the Zócalo) by force – bringing to mind the attempts made by Porfirio Diaz to prevent revolutionaries from overthrowing his regime over a hundred years ago.

The more the Bad Government provokes the People, though, the more the it digs its own grave…

ROJAVA : SYRIA’S SECRET REVOLUTION

Is the Middle East’s newest country a territory called “Rojava”? Out of the chaos of Syria’s civil war, mainly Kurdish leftists have forged an egalitarian, multi-ethnic mini-state run on communal lines. But with ISIS Jihadists attacking them at every opportunity — especially around the beleaguered city of Kobane, how long can this idealistic social experiment last? From the frontlines to the refugee camps, Mehran Bozorgnia filmed in Rojava for the BBC’s Our World and has gained exclusive access and a revealing snapshot of Syria’s secret revolution.


COPYRIGHT: Mehran Bozorgnia / Bozorgnia Films / 2014

Rojava: Kurdish Revolution in Syria

Between 1920 and 1946, when Syria was occupied by France, the national rights of the Kurds were not recognised. Nothing changed after the withdrawal of the French in 1946. The new Syrian government denied the Kurdish people their rights and they were considered as ‘foreigners living in the region’, without rights to education, property and movement.

In 1963, the Ba’ath Party took the control of the country by a coup d’état and declared Syria an ‘Arab country’. Kurds were considered to be migrants from Turkey and Kurdish identity was banned. Original Kurdish names of villages and cities were changed. Kurds were forced to live as refugees in their own land. However, these Kurds have now taken matters into their own hands.

Rojava consists of three main regions: Cizire, Kobane and Efrin. There are working committees affiliated to the Supreme Kurdish Council, governing the autonomous region. The economy, politics, culture and social life are self-governed by the people. The people in Rojava have developed a structure, which could be an example for the whole of the Middle East: a model of administration from below, wherein people actively participate.

kurdistan-1The YPG is the biggest military force in the region. Women constitute more than half of the YPG forces. Security is provided by an armed force formed by the people themselves. The units responsible for security and traffic in cities are formed outside of the YPG. They are accountable to the People’s Assemblies and academies have been built for their education.

In all the cities of Rojava, there are councils called ‘Mala Gel’; their members are elected. Mala Gel is a sort of local council and most of its activities are directed by People’s Assemblies, which are formed within the structure of Mala Gels and local problems are solved through these Assemblies.

Trade unions and occupational bodies represent another area in the process of institutionalisation in Rojava. The Union of Tailors, the Union of Electricians and the Union of Health Workers are some of the organisations. The importance of unions in the process of democratisation is emphasised in Rojava.

Rojava revolution is the revolution of oppressed peoples

The Rojava Revolution, led by Kurds and supported by Assyrians, many Arab socialists and democrats, Muslims and Christians, Sunnis and Alawites is the revolution of all oppressed classes and peoples.

All other uprisings, resisting dictatorial governments in the Middle East, so far have become open to imperialist interventions because they lacked organisation, a project for the future and self-belief. But the Rojavan revolution has everything that was missing in the other uprisings. Today, Rojava is organised as a state of the oppressed peoples. It is free and not under the control of any regional or imperialist power. All land and properties in Rojava belong to the people and not to individuals. What is being produced is being shared according to everyone’s labour and needs.

60% of Syrian oil is in Rojava. This is why the western imperialists and reactionary forces treat the PYD with one hand as the representative body they would negotiate with in the future. But with the other hand, they try to destroy it.

Massacres, bombings, kidnapping of women and children, rape, plunder and destruction carried out by Jabhat Al Nusra and Free Syrian Army forces continue in Rojava. Sabotage, border closure, embargoes and attempts to divide the Kurds internally are the other type of attacks. Turkey, Syria and Iraqi Kurdistan have imposed a blockade on Rojava. Turkey and Iraqi Kurdistan prevented the passage of humanitarian aid. Under pressure from the people in Iraqi Kurdistan the embargo has been relaxed by the Barzani-led establishment. The forces against the Rojavan revolution are trying to force the people in Rojava to their knees in order to push them into a collaborationist position. The attacks are also intended to prevent international solidarity and to isolate Rojava.

 Rojava revolution is a women’s revolution!

Women play an active and crucial part in Rojava and they are involved both in the armed forces and social organisations. The Rojavan revolution is the organised action of women for freedom. Before the revolution the women were oppressed both by the Ba’ath regime and the feudal conditions dominating in the region. Now there are women’s academies and centres everywhere, where the next generation of women cadres and leaders are being educated. The People’s Assemblies also have women’s assemblies within their structure. Women’s Security Units protect women in cities. When women have judicial problems or criminal issues to report, they first go to these units. The number of women at work is high compared with other regions of Kurdistan. The number of women in state institutions is rapidly increasing.

These developments in Rojava scare the regional dictatorships and reactionary forces as well as the imperialist countries. For the people of Rojava have given hope to all the people in the Middle East. The possibility of the Rojavan revolution spreading terrifies the rulers. The Kurdish ruling classes are also frightened because the revolution also threatens their historical rule. That is why Barzani’s Kurdish Regional Government (in northern Iraq) has such enmity for Rojava.

International solidarity

The Kurdish struggle in Rojava is a struggle for all the Kurds in the region. Rojava is the fire of a nation longing for democracy. It is the women resisting slavery and defending their freedom. It is the struggle of workers and labourers for a life in dignity. And that is why solidarity with Rojava is a duty of all revolutionary and progressive people around the world. The countries imposing the blockade on Rojava, supporting the terrorist gangs and the imperialist countries which are covertly involved in attacks on Rojava, have to be opposed.

(ANF/DERİK) Thousands of residents of the Cızîre Canton of Rojava have once again gathered on the border with the KRG to protest the construction of a border trench dividing South and Rojava Kurdistan. Protesters did not carry flags or other signs expressing support for any particular political party, but came bearing shovels with which they threw dirt into back into trench in symbolic gesture of defiances. 10 tents have also been pitched in an attempt to establish a protest encampment and begin a permanent vigil along the border.

November 17, 2014

Outraged protests at the Mexican government‘s handling of the disappearance of 43 studentteachers in the south of the country have mushroomed into massive anti-government rallies, that left 16 police officers in Acapulco injured after clashes between protesters and authorities.

The violent escalation started after Mexico’s attorney general Jesus Murillo Karam announced last Friday that a large group of young people were killed on the night of the student’s arrest and disappearance (26 September) in a municipal garbage dump in Cocula, in the southern state of Guerrero. Jesus Murillo added that the victims were burned on a pyre for 14 hours making it almost impossible for authorities to identify the bodies.
