Interview :: [none]

FRSC: Interview with Ron Anicich of Bad Cop, No Donut!

Skidmark Bob interviews Ron Anicich of Bad Cop, No Donut! before a media attack. Toronto Police Chief Julian Fantino says Bad Cop, No Donut! promotes hatred of the police [see: Get 'hate mongering' off air: Fantino]. Ron talks about the show and support from CKLN. It will be interesting to see how this develops.

A commenter writes: Another critic who needs our support and solidarity! Put him on the list with Ward Churchill and Lynne Stewart, with Free Radio and WAMM. Seems like critics are getting silenced quick and fast in the third Bush administration.

Bad Cop No Donut, for those who aren't aware, is an excellent weekly digest of nationwide accounts of Police Brutality, from lawsuit settlements and legal decisions, to off duty officer conduct and corruption, to taser use, deadly force, and stories yet to be told.
Anicich gathers all the PIC [Prison Industrial Complex] news he can find and puts together a weekly compilation.

Were you at the first A16 demonstration against the IMF and World Bank in Washington, DC in 2000?

Now's your chance to be part of the second A16! The Mobilization for Global Justice is calling for all those interested in helping to construct a mass movement against neo-liberalism and the devastation it is wreaking on the world to converge on Washington, DC from April 15th-17th. Come help us celebrate the successes of our movement, which in the past five years has not only put these institutions on the defensive and on the run, but has begun construction of the new world that has for so long been in all our hearts.

Commentary :: Civil & Human Rights

Why they shot Malcolm X

Malcolm X was killed when he also began to address the oppression of women, non muslims, and non blacks by the capitilist patriarchy. When he began to point the finger at the entire system that created racism AND sexism, he was seen as being too dangerous.

I think he was killed for the same reason Martin Luther King was killed. Both men, while focusing on racism, ALSO focused on the interent evil of the capitalist system which oppresses everyone who isnt wealthy.
