Listen to this episode of the Pan-African Journal hosted by Abayomi Azikiwe, editor of the Pan-African News Wire. We will feature our regular PANW reports focusing on recent developments in Libya where a pro-Gaddafi demonstration was held in Benghazi, the birthplace of the imperialist-backed counter-revolution of 2011. This protest was broken up quickly by reactionaries. These events came in the aftermath of the release of a video showing the systematic torture of Saadi Gaddafi and the death sentences handed down to Seif al-Islam and other Jamahiriya loyalists. Also in the PANW reports include updates on the seizure of a hotel occupied by United Nations forces in Mali; the upcoming political struggle inside the US Congress over the ratification of the Iran nuclear deal; and the death of a Palestinian father whose child was killed by an Israeli settler several days ago. During the second and third hour we highlight the 50th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act passed during the height of the Civil Rights Movement in 1965. We will hear the voices of people from Selma and others in regard to the history of the Act as well as the attacks that have devastated the original intent of the law.
